What to do if tickles your throat
Just scratch your ear - you will stimulate the nerve endings that will cause a spasm, and this will save you from an unpleasant sensation. The doctor came to this conclusion - Scott Schafer's ear, nose and throat.
What if you can’t hear
The answer is simple and banal: listen carefully, but with your right ear. The secret is that the right ear recognizes speech better, and the left ear - musical tones and notes. This is due to the peculiarities of the functioning of the hemispheres of the brain.
What to do if you're afraid of injections
Sensations from the injection, really, you can not call pleasant. However, there is a trick here: try to cough. Studies have shown that people who cough up during intravenous injections, felt less pain than those who did not. Coughing causes a sudden temporary increase in pressure in the chest, suppressing the spinal cord's task of carrying out pain.
What to do if your nose is stuffed
Method of Dr. Lisa DeSefano: you need to alternately press the tongue to the sky several times, and then press on the point between the eyebrows. After about 20 seconds, the congestion will subside. This is due to the fact that a special porous bone - a vomer - located in the nasal area, as if "swinging", gradually opening the passage for the inhaled and exhaled air.
What to do if you overeat before bedtime
This method will help avoid heartburn. Just lie on your left side, says gastroenterologist Anthony A. Starpoli. Then your stomach will be below the esophagus, which will not allow acid to get into the larynx. And it is highly recommended not to go to bed immediately after a meal, but to wait 2–3 hours.
What to do if a tooth aches
Immediately visit the dentist! But to alleviate the pain itself, do this: pound an ice cube on the back of your hand - in the V-shaped membrane between your thumb and forefinger. Toothache reduced by half. Here's how it works: stimulation of the nerves in this area of the hand causes a slight numbness and blocks the flow of pain signals to the brain.
What to do if the nose is bleeding
It is necessary to take a cotton wool and attach it to the gums behind a small dimple under the nose, and then push it hard - Peter Desmore advises. The bleeding will stop because you are blocking the artery by pressing. The principle is the same as when applying a harness. But, if the bleeding does not stop longer than 5–10 minutes, consult a doctor!
What to do if you burn your finger
To reduce the likelihood of blistering - push the burned area with a clean pad of the unaffected hand. This method is recommended by the same Lisa DeStefano. And in order to reduce pain, use the good old method: hand + cold water.
What to do if you are very worried
Doctor Ben Ebo advises you to blow on your thumb. An interesting fact: the thumb has its own pulse, and by calming it down, you can calm the heart rhythm. When you blow on your finger, it cools it and calms the heartbeat. In addition, the action itself makes you breathe deeper, which also has a sedative effect.
What to do if you bit off an ice cream and a headache
The feeling is familiar, perhaps, to everyone. This is due to the fact that the nerves in the sky freeze and the brain decides that the whole body has cooled. In response to this, overheating occurs, and as a result - a headache occurs. To warm the sky and relieve the pain, just hold the tongue against it, trying to cover as much as possible. Ben Ebo shared this way.
What to do if your hand is numb
Just shake your head from side to side, says Lisa DeStefano. Numbness occurs due to compression of the nerve fibers. A bundle of nerves, which is responsible for transmitting a signal from the hand to the brain, passes through the neck, so you just stretch it up to remove numbness.
What if you want to learn how to fall asleep quickly
When you wake up in the morning, immediately get out of bed and do not go back there until you need to go to bed again. This will help your body to unconsciously associate the bed with sleep, and over time you will be able to fall asleep only by touching the pillow with your head.
What if you need to learn something by heart?
Professor Candy Heymgratner suggests repeating the text to be remembered several times before going to bed. During sleep, our brain organizes all the information, and its transition to long-term memory takes place. In the morning after waking up, most likely, you will know the text by heart.
What to do if while running stabs in the side
The feeling is familiar to almost everyone who has run at least once in their life. To avoid it, try to exhale when the right foot lands on the ground. The fact is that tingling is caused by squeezing the liver, and relieving pressure on it is quite simple.
What to do if you want to dive deeper into the water
In case you always do not have enough air when you dive, try the method suggested by MD Jonathan Armbroster. Take a few quick short breaths. Thus, you will have an additional 10 seconds in stock. There will be a slight hyperventilation of the lungs, and the brain will assume that you have enough oxygen. This will help you to make a deep dive.
