Body Tricks That Will Solve So Many Aches And Pains
Soothe A Scratchy Throat
Hot tea is nice, and a salt water gargle can provide temporary relief but when we have a tickle in our throat, there’s nothing that seems to really quiet the urge to itch.
Lessen The Chance Of Burn Scars
Instead of rushing for the ice pack after a nasty burn, try pressing the pads of your fingers against the affected area gently. This will bring your skin back to body temperature less rapidly, which will reduce the risk of blisters appearing. Your skin will heal naturally and you’ll be left without a noticeable burn scar!
Make A Toothache Disappear In Second
If you have sensitive teeth, this helpful trick will change your life! When you start to feel the pain build, place an ice on the back of your hand. You’ll want to rub it back and forth on the webbed area between your index finger and your thumb. This area is filled with nerve pathways that run pain signals from the face and hands to the brain, and the cool temperatures will block the messages they’re trying to send!
Get Rid Of That Migraine Right Now
You don’t need expensive and addictive pain medication to treat your pounding migraine! Try the ancient technique of using pressure points to relieve even the worst headache pain. According to LiveStrong, you’ll use your thumb and forefinger on one hand to apply pressure to the same webbed area (between your other thumb and forefinger) on your other hand. Press and hold for two minutes on each side, while rotating your fingers in a gentle, circular motion – this will allow blood to flow out of your head and neck, and will loosen any Ki, or “blocked energy.”
