Our bodies are a real mystery, for which even the science cannot answer all the questions, which are about its vital function. For instance, sore joints can trigger the healing of some other ailment, and the other way around.
One of the good things is that there are several tricks that you can use, in order to soothe your sore throat, as well as to clear stuffy nose, and treat some other ailments.
You can also treat the most irritating ailments, stress, and aches, if you stimulate certain spots, focus on some other things and apply some handy tricks.
1. Soothe a scratchy throat
Taking a cup of tea is always a good idea, and gargling saline solution can relieve the pain temporarily. But, what is the solution about getting rid of the tickle in your throat?
The tickle in your throat is like a terrible itch that does not go away. Scott Schaffer, which is a M.D. President of an ear, nose and throat specialty center, in one interview has revealed the secret about the most efficient way for throat relief. According to him, scratching your ear will be the best thing ever.
The doctor explains: “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.” You will cure, as well as prevent flu and colds easily, if you use this trick, as well as if you share it with family and friends.
2. “Chill” the nerves
You won’t have stress as your worst enemy, immediately after applying this simple trick. All you need to do is to splash ice-cold water in your face and hold your breath while you do that.
The icy power that the water has, will lure your brain into triggering the “mammalian diving reflex.” It helps to our body in better use of the oxygen, and you will also be calm again. WebMD says that the connection that cold water and stress relief have, has been discovered since long ago.
Drinking a glass of cold water, will also provide some similar effects. So, be happy, because there will not be a need of ruining your mascara.
3. Deal with needles without any fear
Try to get your mind somewhere else, because that needle won’t do and cannot do anything to you. So, the next time when the nurse tries to insert that needle into your muscle, you just need to cough slightly, and you won’t think of the pain at all. But be very careful, and share the secret with the nurse, as the cough may cause some undesired complications.
4. Clear stuffy nose
When you suffer from stuffy sinuses, that is probably the worst thing that can happen to you. You just need to press your tongue against the roof of your mouth, and press your index fingers against your eyebrows.
The pressure caused on the vomer will trigger a back and forth motion, and this will loosen your mucus. One every 20 seconds take a deep breath, and after that say goodbye to your phlegm.
5. Prevent burn scars
After burning yourself, you won’t need to search for your ice packs, as you can press the pads of your fingers against the burnt area on your skin.
This will help in delaying the restoring of the normal body temperature in that part. It will also help you not do deal with nasty blisters later. As the skin will be cured naturally, you won’t have any scars from the burning.
6. Relieve toothaches instantly
If you have sensitive teeth, this trick is amazing for them. When you feel that the pain is coming, put an ice pack on the back of your hand. Rub it back and forth against the area between your index finger and thumb.
This part of the hand is filled with nerve pathways which are responsible for carrying the pain signals from the face and the hands to our brain. The cold temperature caused by the ice packs, will block these signals.
7. Get rid of nervousness
We suggest you to try this trick, when you try to find a way to calm down the butterflies in your stomach. In order to calm your nerves instantly, blow on your thumb. It will help in regulating your breathing, as well as controlling the vagus nerve, which will slow the heart rate. You can say “Bye, bye” to the butterflies.
8. Relieve migraine in a few seconds
You will no more need to pay a small fortune on “powerful” painkillers. LiveStrong reveals the secret of an ancient technique, which will free you of the pounding nightmare.
You just need to stimulate the same spot between your thumb and index finger using the thumb and forefinger of your other hand. You should apply a mild pressure. Hold for 2 minutes on each side.
If you do some circular motions, it will work better. Using this technique, your blood flow to the neck and head will be improved, and it will also release any “blocked energy” or Ki.
All this techniques will help you to be free from any unpleasant ailment. You can also share them with friends, so they will improve the quality of your life.
