    I’ve used the soy sauce treatment many times since I heard about it on your show and it works great every time.

    While working at a local O’Charlies restaurant, one of our chefs was burned badly by a frier. I happened to be in the kitchen when it happened, and the manager screamed ‘get me a fresh onion out of the walk-in refrigerator’.
    I didn’t question it–he asked me to cut it in half and give it to him, which I did. He squeezed the fresh onion juice on it. What was amazing is not only that it calmed the awful pain away, but the best part is that it NEVER BLISTERED!!!
    He later explained to me that it must be a ‘FRESH CUT ONION’. I proved that later when in another restaurant I got burned and I reached for onions that were cut up that morning, and it didn’t work, so I had to then reach for a fresh onion. As Dr Graedon says, ‘seconds count’ when it comes to a burn.
    That happened back in the 80’s and I have sworn by it every time. It always works! Something about the chemical of the onion juice that works wonders.

    I keep Nupercainal in my kitchen drawer so when I burn my hand or arm I put it on and within 45 seconds the pain is gone. It works every time.
