Bodies are real mystery, and even science cannot answer all the questions related to their vital functions. For instance, sore joints can trigger the healing of other ailment, and the other way around.
The good thing is that you can use a few simple tricks to soothe your sore throat, clear stuffy nose and treat any other ailment.
By stimulating certain spots, focusing on other things, and applying some handy tricks you can treat the most irritating ailments, stress, and aches.
Soothe A Scratchy Throat
Hot tea is nice, and a salt water gargle can provide temporary relief – but when we have a tickle in our throat, there’s nothing that seems to really quiet the urge to itch. Scott Schaffer, M.D., president of an ear, nose, and throat specialty center, told Men’s Health the secret behind lasting throat relief. Doctor Schaffer says all you have to do is scratch your ear! He explained, “When the nerves in the ear are stimulated, it creates a reflex in the throat that can cause a muscle spasm. This spasm relieves the tickle.” Everyone in your home will thank you this upcoming cold and flu season!
“Cool” Your Nerves
When the world has you stressed and you don’t know how to relax, splash a little cold water on your face! The combination of holding your breath and feeling the ice-cold water on your skin tricks your brain into employing the “mammalian diving reflex.” This reflex forces your body to use oxygen more efficiently, which in turn, calms you down. WebMD states that the history behind water and stress relief is long and well-documented – they explain that even simply drinking a cold glass of water can help you “chill out.” That means you don’t have to ruin your mascara to give this hack a chance!
Deal with needles without any fear
Find a way to get your mind somewhere else! That needle cannot do anything to you. So, next time the nurse is getting ready to insert that needle in your muscle, just cough slightly.
You won’t think of the pain at all! But, make sure you share your secret with the nurse, because your cough may cause undesired complications.
Get Rid Of That Migraine Right Now
You don’t need expensive and addictive pain medication to treat your pounding migraine! Try the ancient technique of using pressure points to relieve even the worst headache pain. According to LiveStrong, you’ll use your thumb and forefinger on one hand to apply pressure to the same webbed area (between your other thumb and forefinger) on your other hand. Press and hold for two minutes on each side, while rotating your fingers in a gentle, circular motion – this will allow blood to flow out of your head and neck, and will loosen any Ki, or “blocked energy.”
Prevent burn scars
Do not reach for your ice packs after you burn yourself. Press the pads of your fingers against the burnt skin area.
This will delay the restoring of the normal body temperature in that part, and you will not have to deal with nasty blisters later. Your skin will heal naturally, and you will not have any burn scars.
Get rid of nervousness
If you are looking for a way to calm those butterflies in your stomach, we suggest that you try our trick. Blow on your thumb to calm your nerves instantly. Yes, you read that one right. This will regulate your breathing and control the vagus nerve, and thus slow your heart rate. Bye, bye butterflies.
Make A Toothache Disappear In Second
If you have sensitive teeth, this helpful trick will change your life! When you start to feel the pain build, place an ice on the back of your hand. You’ll want to rub it back and forth on the webbed area between your index finger and your thumb. This area is filled with nerve pathways that run pain signals from the face and hands to the brain, and the cool temperatures will block the messages they’re trying to send!
