30-Second Body Pain Fixes
The Fix: The second you feel a brain freeze coming on, put your tongue to the roof of your mouth. The heat from your tongue will calm the nerves and reduce pain faster.
The Fix: A knee-jerk reaction is to massage your leg, which does help with the pain from a charley horse. But, eating potassium-rich foods and replenishing your electrolytes is a good way to prevent an imbalance.
Try this electrolyte elixir for a delicious and natural way to replenish your body's calcium, sodium and potassium:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup tomato juice
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Pinch salt
Mix all the ingredients together, and enjoy.
The Fix: Hold your nose and close your mouth, and blow gently. As long as you're careful and gentle, it's not harmful to your body, and will help regulate the pressure in your ear.
The Fix: While twitches eventually go away on their own, to help speed along the process, apply a hot compress on the eye for 30 seconds to suppress the twitch.
