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
A cup of hot tea is always food, and gargling saline solution can relieve the pain temporarily. But, what can you do to get rid of the tickle in your throat?
It is like a terrible itch that will not go away. In an interview for Men’s Health, Scott Schaffer, M.D. President of an ear, nose and throat specialty center, revealed the secret of the most efficient throat relief.
According to Dr. Schaffer, scratching your ear is the best thing ever!
“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,” explains the doctor. Share this trick with your friends and family, and you will combat flu and colds easily.
“Chill” the nerves
After applying this simple trick, stress will no longer be your worst enemy. All you have to do is splash ice-cold water in your face and hold your breath while doing so.
The icy power will lure your brain into triggering the “mammalian diving reflex.” It helps the body use oxygen better, and you are calm again! WebMD says that the connection between cold water and stress relief has been discovered long ago.
You can also drink a glass of cold water. It will provide a similar effect. So, there is no need to ruin your mascara, cheer up.
