Wondering how to get rid of hiccups? From holding your breath to eating ice, there are a couple of things you can try — but none of these are guaranteed to work. As it turns out, scientists don't really know what causes hiccups. These strange sounds may be due to stress, overeating, or drinking very cold or very hot drinks (via Cleveland Clinic). Some medications, especially those prescribed for anxiety, may be to blame, too.

If every move you make is accompanied by the gritty sound of bones cracking and grinding, you may want a chiropractor on speed dial. According to Cleveland Clinic, a licensed chiropractor manipulates the joints in your body to correct their alignment and can complement the traditional medical care you receive.

Since sunglasses are as much a fashion accessory as they are protective eyewear, it can be tempting to buy a pair just because you like how they look on your face, you like the particular style, or you're a fan of the brand. But you can certainly ensure solid UV protection for your all-important vision without sacrificing style.

Chances are that when you were growing up, your parents had a bottle of rubbing alcohol somewhere in the cabinets or bathroom that they broke out for first aid purposes, and you undoubtedly pass the bottles at your local pharmacy while on the hunt for other things.

While most of us know that we need to schedule routine maintenance for our cars and even our heating and A/C systems before they break down rather than waiting for disaster to strike, sometimes we're not quite as conscientious when it comes to our own health and well-being. Sure, we might undergo an annual physical each year, but unless we're complaining of any particular symptoms, such a checkup might not amount to much more than a weigh-in, a stethoscope to the chest, and maybe a hammer to the knee to check if you're still alive and (literally) kicking.

There is no denying that many people love white teeth, on themselves as well as on others. Having white teeth is not only aesthetically appealing to most people but it also has a psychological reason behind it. According to Dr. Dacher Keltner, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, most people are attracted to white teeth because they appear to be cleaner and healthier as compared to stained or yellow ones

Acne is not just a teenage ailment, as it can occur at any age. Although adult acne is less common than teen acne, it affects more women than men and can often occur during menopause when hormones are off balance. Healthline reports that 25% of women aged 40-49 get acne. Hormonal imbalances that occur with puberty are also what cause teen acne, so it makes sense that the same thing would cause adult-onset flareups. But how do you remedy acne using natural and gentle methods?

There's nothing like soaking up the sun on a warm summer day, but it's very easy to get a little too much sun. How quickly you burn can vary from person to person; the American Skin Association warns that someone with lightly pigmented skin can get a sunburn in as little as 10 minutes. Even if you wear sunscreen (as you should — even indoors), people often forget to reapply it throughout the day, which means they can still get a sunburn.

Waking up in the middle of the night to numb hands is never a fun feeling, but it's certainly not an uncommon one. 

It's a feeling that most people have felt in their life at some point or another, (via Healthline). When your hands are asleep, or the feeling of "pins and needles," it's usually pretty simple to get the sensation flowing back with some quick movements and some relocating of limbs. But what causes this feeling in the first place?

When a person unfocuses their eyes, they do so by relaxing the ciliary muscles in their eyes, which in turn causes them to lose focus. In general, people tend to unfocus their eyes when looking at an object from a close range, when looking at hidden images — such as Magic Eye Images — and when admiring 3D imagery or artworks. A lot of people first learn the ability to unfocus their eyes during their childhood, while others simply pick up the skill while daydreaming or staring into space.
