    15 tricks to teach your body

    15 tricks to teach your body

    If you've got an itch in your throat, scratch your ear. When thenerves in the ear get stimulated, they create a reflex in the throatthat causes a muscle spasm, which cures the itch.

    2.) Having trouble hearing someone at a party or on the phone? Useyour right ear…it's better at picking up rapid speech.. But, the leftis better at picking up music tones.

    3.) If you need to relieve yourself BADLY, but you're not anywherenear a bathroom, fantasize about RELATIONS. That preoccupies yourbrain and distracts it..

    4.) Next time the doctor's going to give you an injection, COUGH asthe needle is going in. The cough raises the level of pressure in yourspinal canal, which limits the pain sensation as it tries to travel toyour brain..

    5.) Clear a stuffed nose or relieve sinus pressure by pushing yourTongue against the roof of your mouth…then pressing a finger betweenyour eyebrows. Repeat that for 20 seconds…it causes the vomer bone torock, which loosens your congestion and clears you up.

    6.) If you ate a big meal and you're feeling full as you go to sleep,lay on your left side. That'll keep you from suffering from acidreflux…it keeps your stomach lower than your esophagus, which willhelp keep stomach acid from sliding up your throat.

    7.) You can stop a toothache by rubbing ice on the back of your hand,on the webbed area between your thumb and index finger. The nervepathways there stimulate a part of the brain that blocks pain signalsfrom your mouth.

    8.) If you get all messed up on liquor, and the room starts spinning,put your hand on something stable. The reason: Alcohol dilutes theblood in the part of your ear called the cupula, which regulatesbalance. Putting your hand on something stable gives your brainanother reference point, which will help make the world stop spinning.

    9.) Stop a nose bleed by putting some cotton on your upper gums…rightbehind the small dent below your nose…and press against it hard. Mostof the bleeding comes from the cartilage wall that divides the nose,so pressing there helps get it to stop.

    10.) Nervous? Slow your heart rate down by blowing on your thumb. Thevagus nerve controls your heart rate, and you can calm it down bybreathing.

    11.) Need to breathe underwater for a while??? Instead of taking ahuge breath, HYPERVENTILATE before you go under, by taking a bunch ofshort breaths. That'll trick your brain into thinking it has moreoxygen, and buy you about 10 extra seconds.

    12.) You can prevent BRAIN FREEZE by pressing your tongue flat againstthe roof of your mouth, covering as much surface area as possible.Brain freeze happens because the nerves in the roof of your mouth getextremely cold, so your brain thinks your whole body is cold. Itcompensates by overheating…which causes your head to hurt. By warmingup the roof of your mouth, you'll chill your brain and feel better.

    13.) If your hand falls asleep, rock your head from side to side.That'll wake your hand or arm up in less than a minute. Your handfalls asleep because of the nerves in your neck compressing…soloosening your neck is the cure. If your foot falls asleep, that'sgoverned by nerves lower in the body, so you need to stand up and walkaround.

    14.) Finally, this one's totally USELESS, but a nice trick. HaveSomeone stick their arm out to the side, straight, palm down. Pressdown on his wrist with two fingers. He'll resist, and his arm willstay horizontal. Then, have him put his foot on a surface that's halfan inch off the ground, like a stack of magazines, and do the trickagain. Because his spine position is thrown off, his arm will fallright to his side, no matter how much he tries to resist.

    15.) Got the hiccups? Press thumb and second finger over youreyebrows until the hiccups are over usually shortly.
