 1.) If you've got an itch in your throat, scratch your ear. When the  

     nerves in the ear get stimulated, they create a reflex in the throat  

     that causes a muscle spasm, which cures the itch.

2.) Having
 trouble hearing someone at a party or on the phone?
     Use your right ear it's better at picking up rapid speech. But, the

     left is better at picking up music tones.

3.) If you
 need to relieve yourself BADLY, but you're not anywhere

       near a bathroom, fantasize about RELATIONS. That preoccupies  

     your brain and distracts it.

4.) Next time the doctor's
 going to give you an injection, COUGH as

      the needle is going in. The cough raises the level of pressure in   

      your spinal canal, which limits the pain sensation as it tries to

     travel to your brain.

5.) Clear a
 stuffed nose or relieve sinus pressure by pushing your

      tongue against the roof of your mouth then pressing a finger  

      between your eyebrows. Repeat that for 20 seconds it causes

      the vomer bone to rock, which loosens your congestion and

      clears you up.

6.) If you ate a
 big meal and you're feeling full as you go to sleep,
     lay on your left side. That'll keep you from suffering from acid

     reflux it keeps your stomach lower than your esophagus, which

     will helps keep stomach acid from sliding up your throat.

7.) You can
 stop a toothache by rubbing ice on the back of your
     hand, on the webbed area between your thumb and index finger.
     The nerve pathways there stimulate a part of the brain that blocks

     pain signals from your mouth.


8.) If you get all messed up on liquor, and the room starts spinning,

     put your hand on something stable. The reason: Alcohol dilutes

     the blood in the part of your ear called the cupula, which regulates   

     balance. Putting your hand on something stable gives your brain   

     another reference point, which will help make the world stop      


9.) Stop a
 nose bleed by putting some cotton on your upper gums right behind the small dent below your nose and press against it hard. Most of the bleeding comes from the cartilage wall that divides the nose, so pressing there helps get it to stop.

 Nervous? Slow your heart rate down by blowing on your thumb.

       The vagus nerve controls your heart rate, and you can calm it   

       down by breathing.

11.) Need to
 breathe underwater for a while? Instead of taking a huge  

       breath, HYPERVENTILATE before you go under, by taking a  

       bunch of short breaths. That'll trick your brain into thinking it has  

       more oxygen, and buy you about 10 extra seconds.

12.) You can
 prevent BRAIN FREEZE by pressing your tongue flat

       against the roof of your mouth, covering as much surface area

       as possible. Brain freeze happens because the nerves in the

       roof of your mouth get extremely cold, so your brain thinks your  

       whole body is cold. It compensates by overheating which causes  

       your head to hurt. By warming up the roof of your mouth, you'll chill  

       your brain and feel better.

13.) If your
 hand falls asleep, rock your head from side to side. That'll  

       wake your hand or arm up in less than a minute. Your hand falls   

       asleep because of the nerves in your neck compressing so  

       loosening your neck is the cure. If your foot falls asleep, that's  

       governed by nerves lower in the body, so you need to stand up  

       and walk around.

14.) Finally, this one's totally USELESS, but a nice trick. Have  

       someone stick their arm out to the side, straight, palm down.

       Press down on his wrist with two fingers. He'll resist, and his

       arm will stay horizontal. Then, have him put his foot on a surface  

       that's half an inch off the ground, like a stack of magazines, and

       do the trick again. Because his spine position is thrown off, his

       arm will fall right to his side, no matter how much he tries to resist.

 Got the hiccups? Press thumb and second finger over your
       eyebrows until the hiccups are over - usually, in a short while.
