A doctor reveals several simple tips to make your life easier – from how to stop a tickle in your throat to how to cram for a test.
Known as “America’s Holistic Plastic Surgeon,” Dr. Anthony Yoon, 48, of Detroit, has created a series of videos titled “Body Hacks That Actually Work.”
The video has seen Doc rise in popularity, gaining 5.1 million followers.
Here are some of the best tips given by him…
How to ‘Supercharge’ Your Brain
Dr. Yoon claimed that reading notes for a test “before you go to sleep” would help your brain during an exam the next morning.
“Here’s a way to supercharge your brain,” he said in one of his videos.
“Go over your notes just before you go to sleep and the next morning your mind will help you remember it.”
Research has previously shown how a good night’s sleep immediately after your studies can significantly improve your ability to retain information, according to Lifehacker.
how to get rid of tickle throat
The doctor also answered one of the most frustrating medical mysteries – how to get rid of an annoying tickle in your throat.
He claimed to know a simple solution to the problem.
“Scratching on your ear and it’s going to help take away the tickle in your throat,” he said.
Scott Schaefer, president of an ear, nose, and throat specialty center in Gibbsboro, New Jersey, said it works because ear scratching causes muscle spasms in the throat.
They told men’s Health: “When the ear nerves are stimulated, it creates a reflex in the throat that can cause muscle spasms.
“It relieves the cramping tickle.”
How to help with pain from hand injections
Dr. Yoon’s third tip was timely considering the rollout of COVID Jobs.
She unveils a hack to help with the pain of getting an injection in your arm.
“When you’re getting the shot, scratch the area right next to it—it’s going to confuse your nerves and it won’t hurt,” he claimed.
How to prevent itchy mosquito bites
And he also offered some useful advice to people suffering from itchy mosquito bites.
“Take a little antiperspirant and rub it against mosquito bites,” he said.
“It’s going to stop it from itching.”
The aluminum salts in antiperspirant reportedly can help you reabsorb body fluids from mosquito bites, and this helps reduce swelling and stop itching.
Dr. Yoon also shared the health hack video with his 820,000 Instagram followers – many of whom were particularly excited about the memory tip.
One said: “I really fall asleep after going through the notes trick and it’s really helpful.”
Another addition: “Number one really works, used it for many years.”
