Doctor reveals simple 'body hacks' to banish hiccups and eavesdrop better

EVER wanted to be able to listen to people's conversations without them knowing?

One TikTok doctor has revealed exactly how you can do that and other body hacks.

Dr Anthony Youn explained that there is a way you can listen into a chat that wasn't meant for you.

He explained: "Try listening with your right ear and not your left – your right ear is connected to the left side of your brain which processes speech and language."

His posts on body hacks have gone viral and include a range of tricks and trips.

He also revealed how you can get rid of hiccups.

Hiccups are caused by erratic electrical impulses in the vagus nerve.

Swallowing air is the main cause, and you can do this by eating too fast, smoking or chewing gum but you can also get hiccups when you eat too much and irritate your diaphragm.

Hiccups are sometimes thought to be a reflex to protect a person from choking.

Dr Youn said: "To get rid of hiccups, put two fingers right on your wrist crease and press down while you hold your breath for a few seconds.”

His advise comes after another TikTok doctor revealed a bizarre way that you can get rid of hiccups – but it's not for the faint hearted.

Dr Karan Raj revealed that a rectal massage could get rid of the hiccups.

He said: "Hiccups are caused by erratic electrical impulses in the vagus nerve.

"Rectal massage stimulates the vagus nerve which is part of the parasympathetic nervous system.

"Increased stimulation of the vagus nerve helps to control the diaphragm and then terminates the hiccups."

Dr Youn has posted many tips and tricks including how you can see in the dark and how you can stop pain after a vaccine or injection.

He also revealed how to get rid of brain freeze and how to stop itching if you have been bitten by a mosquito.
