Fighting Brain Freeze October 3, 2008

If nothing in this world is perfect, then we have to ask: Whats the very one thing that we don’t like about iced beverages (shakes, smoothies, ice cream, etc…)? If there is such.

And the answer is…. Brain Freeze!!!!

Ooooh we hate it when it happens right? It may not be that much of a threat to our health, and is temporary but it’s a painful one. At least for a bit. So how do we stop Brain Freeze (primarily known as ice cream headache, by the way)?

Because it’s not even considered a serious health problem, and is temporary, not much studies have been provided. But here’s what doctors say:“Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get extremely cold whenever you eat something icy cool, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too,”.

So how do we stop it? You just basically have to press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can to somehow regulate that sudden coolness in your mouth. So basically, the more pressure you apply (to the roof of your mouth) the faster your headache will be gone.

That’s easy right?

3 Critical:

  1. Finally!!! – now that we know this, the next thing for us to do is prove it. I can see the shakes coming now.
  2. Who Invented? – or the best question I guess would be who was the first victim of brain freeze. I wanna know.
  3. We Love It – ok, it’s painful and is sometimes annoying… but we love it right? Brain Freeze it is!!!!!
