Ok, this is a bit weird, and it’s very late at night, very early in the morning, so I want to see if I’m crazy. Alexa over at The Real Princess Diaries talked about a very odd way to suppress your gag reflex. You know, to deep throat…or maybe not get upset at the dentist or doctor, I don’t want to assume.
So, here’s the trick, and I specifically want to see if it works for you guys.
Step 1: Put your left thumb against your palm, wrap your fingers around it. You should now have a fist with your thumb in the middle.
Step 2: There is no step 2.
Seriously, that’s it. And maybe it’s late night hokum, or the power of suggestion, but I can touch my uvula. Yeah, weird, creepy, unnatural.
But maybe, just maybe, there’s some neural pathway allowing this to happen. So, give it a try. Very curious if it works for you! Please let us know in the comments section!
