We have quick fixes and easy hacks for all our things at home but we usually lack the ability to tackle little health problems with our body. How do I get rid of that itch in my throat, stop a nose bleed or prevent brain freeze? And so we bring to you 8 amazing body hacks that will help you get rid of minor body problems faster!

1.Cure A Tickling Throat

1-Cure-A-Tickling-Throat

Scratch your ear to cure that tickling throat! 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.

2.Experience Supersonic Hearing

2-Experience-Supersonic-Hearing

Your right ear is better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech. On the other hand, if you’re trying the song that’s playing softly in the elevator, turn your left ear toward the sound. The left ear is better at picking up music sounds.

3.Prevent Acid Reflux

3-Prevent-Acid-Reflux

While there are a number of potential reasons for acid reflux, one very preventable cause is sleeping on your right side. When you lay on your right side, your stomach is higher than your esophagus, which allows gravity to cause acid reflux. Try sleeping on your left side to reduce night time discomfort.

4.Prevent or Force a Sneeze

4-Prevent-or-Force-a-Sneeze

To prevent sneezing at an inopportune time, with your mouth closed, try pressing your tongue firmly against the back of your teeth to help prevent your sneeze. While preventing a sneeze is great, there is nothing more annoying than a sneeze that you can feel as a tickle in the back of your throat but never actually initiates. To force a sneeze, try staring up into a bright light.

5.Remember Data And Solve Problems in Your Sleep

5-Remember-Data-and-Solve

Most memory consolidation happens when your mind is in a resting state and as such, reviewing raw material or the details of a complicated problem before going to bed can help you to better remember the data or even devise a solution to the problem.

6.Reduce Toothache Pain

6-Reduce-Toothache-Pain

Holding an ice cube firmly on the v-shaped area between your thumb and index finger on the back of your hand can reduce toothache pain by around 50%.

7.Reduce Side Pain When Running

7-Reduce-Side-Pain-when-Running

Most people, when running, tend to exhale when their right foot strikes the ground, which actually puts pressure on the liver and causes the dreaded “side stitch” in many runners. Try simply training yourself to exhale when your left foot strikes the ground and take the pressure off your poor liver.

8.Wake a Sleeping Limb

8-Wake-a-Sleeping-Limb

To revive an arm that has fallen asleep, try rocking your head from side to side, which will reduce tension in your neck and help to ease the pins and needles sensation in your arm. For a leg that has fallen asleep, walking around a bit is still your best option.
