The human body can miraculously heal itself from cuts and wounds without our intervention. However, sometimes you may want to give your body a little help if you’re in a hurry for a cure. Try these cool “body tricks” to quickly heal everything from a hiccup to a scratchy throat!
Keep One Eye Closed
This is a brilliant but simple trick! Try to keep one eye closed while going to the bathroom in the middle of the night. According to Dr. Mercola, exposure to bright light on the retina of the eye tricks our brains into thinking it’s daytime, making it hard to fall asleep.
So by keeping one eye closed for those midnight bathroom breaks, you can quickly readjust to the the darkness and fall asleep like a baby once the lights go out.
Roll Your Neck
If you’ve ever leaned your body weight up against your arm or hand for too long, you know what it feels like when those limbs become numb and “fall asleep.” Dr. Oz says that you go numb because you’ve been compressing the nerves and they aren’t getting enough oxygen.
