Body Talk 30th August

How about using some old fashioned remedies to help cure your aches and pains. Do they work or are they really old wives tales?

A cold shower is to soothe varicose veins. It helps to constrict the veins which make them feel more supported. Raising the legs can also provide relief.

Press your gums to stop a nosebleed. This could help, but the blood is suppliefd to the nose from several areas, so if that doesn't work you could try pressing between the eyes.

Cough to distract you from the pain of an injection. This could work as it's the distraction that's important. If your body is tense it will hurt more.

Wiggle your head to ease pins and needles. This could help as this sensation is often the result of compression in the nerves at the back of your head.

Sprinkle black pepper on a cut. Several studies have discovered that a component of black pepper has strong antibacterial properties which would suggest that it's helpful for healing.

These are just a few old remedies. if you know of any more send them in to me.
