Cure everyday little problems in ways you did not even know was possible.

 

Cure a tickling throat: Scratch your ear, when the nerves in the ear are stimulated it creates a muscle spasm, this relieves the tickle.

Supersonic hearing: If you cannot hear what a person is saying, lean in with your right ear, it is better at following the rapid rhythms of speech. When you can’t hear what song is playing, lean in with your left ear, it is better at picking up music tones.

When nature calls: If you need to use the loo but there is no loo to use, occupy your brain by thinking of something else.

Feel no pain: If you are going for an injection, try coughing as the needle goes in, it will lessen the pain of the needle stick.

Clear blocked nose: Thrust your tongue against the roof of your mouth and press between your eyebrows with one finger, this causes the vomar bone that runs through the nasal passage to rock back and forth and this motion loosens the congestion.

Acid reflux: Sleep on your left side; you are then less likely to suffer from acid reflux

Cure toothache: Rub ice on the back of your hand, on the v-shaped webbed area between your thumb and index finger. The nerve pathways at the base of that v stimulate an area of the brain that blocks out pain from the face and hands.

Unstitch a side stitch: When you run and your right foot hits the ground as you exhale, this puts downward pressure on your liver which then tugs at the diaphragm and creates a side stitch. Try exhaling as your left foot hits the ground.

Nose bleeds: Put some cotton wool on your upper gums just behind that small indent in your nose, and press against it hard.

Rapid heartbeats: Blow on your thumb. The vagus nerve, which governs heart rate, can be controlled through breathing.

Brain freeze: Press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can, When the roof of your mouth gets extremely cold, the brain thinks the body is getting cold as well, the more pressure you apply to the roof of your mouth, the faster the brain freeze and headache will disappear.

Pins and needles: If your hand falls asleep while you are sitting in an odd position, try rocking your head side to side. Pins and needles in the hand or arm are the result of compression in the bundle of nerves in your neck, loosening your neck muscles will relieve the pressure.

Water before food: Drink a glass of water before you eat as hunger can be mistaken for thirst. Staying hydrated before a meal can prevent you from over eating.

Cure hiccups: Drink water upside down and count to 10 while you swallow.

Stopping a sneeze: Press your tongue against the back of your teeth, tickle the roof of your mouth with your tongue or pinch your nose.

Hold your breath longer: Hyperventilate before going under water.

Forget where you parked your car: Place the remote under your chin, open your mouth and press the button. Your oral cavity will amplify the signal and you will locate your car immediately.

Hear your own voice: Use two folders, one on each ear, put the length of the folder in front of your ears with the surface facing forward; this will help you to hear what you sound like to others.

Yes, we can do amazing things with our bodies.
