20 Amazing Health Tricks To Teach Your Body

13. Stop A Nose Bleed
 See that small dent below your nose? Stick some cotton in your upper gums in that location. “Pressing here helps stop them. Most bleeds come from the front of the septum, the cartilage wall that divides the nose,” says Peter Desmarais, M.D., an ear, nose, and throat specialist at Entabeni Hospital, in Durban, South Africa.

14. Make Your Heart Stand Still
If you really want to put your jitters to rest, blow on your thumb. The vagus nerve governs your heart rate and you can control it through breathing and it can get the heart rate back to normal.

15. Thaw Your Brain Freeze
Brain freeze is a drag but you can gain relief by pressing your tongue flat against the roof of you mouth. Try to cover as much as you can and apply pressure as the more pressure, the faster relief will come. “Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get extremely cold, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too. In compensating, it overheats, causing an ice­cream headache.” says Abo

16. Prevent Near-Sightedness
Optometrist Anne Barer says this about the cause of near­sightedness: “It’s usually caused by nearpoint stress.” Like staring at your computer for long periods. Every few hours you should close your eyes, tense your body, take a deep breath, then after a few seconds release your breath and your muscle tension. Flexing and releasing other muscles such as bi’s and glutes can trick involuntary eye muscles into relaxing.

17. Wake Up a Limb That Fell Asleep
We’ve all had our foot or hand fall asleep on us and you are totally stuck until it wakes up! So what you do is rock your head from side to side. It makes the pins and needles feeling go away and it will occur in less than a minute. Loosening the neck muscles releases the compressed nerve situation.

18. Impress Your Friends Here’s a party trick. Have someone hold one arm straight out to the side. The palms should be dow. Now tell him to hold that position. Place two fingers on his wrist and push down. He will try to resist and succeed. Have him put a foot on a surface a few inches higher, such as on a few magazines on the ground, then repeat this. He will fail at resisting this time. Turns out your brain will sense that the spine is vulnerable, thus shutting down the body’s ability to be able to resist since you are misaligning the hip

19. Breathe Underwater
If you need to breathe underwater take a bunch of short breathes first, basically hyperventilating. It’s the buildup of carbon dioxide that makes you desperate for breath when underwater. The carbon dioxide makes your blood acidic causing red flags to go off in your brain that something is not right. This trick will fool your brain into thinking it has more oxygen and can buy you an extra 10 seconds underwater

20. Encode Long-Term Memory
Before giving that speech make sure to review it before falling asleep the night prior. Memory consolidation occurs during sleep so whatever you read right before bed will be the most likely to be encoded into long­term memory.
