The human body is one of the most complex machines that were ever created. The scientist from the whole world is trying to find out about few things that happen in our body. And they have got success too in decoding few mechanisms that take place in our body time to time.
Have to ever thought what is the reason that makes you sneeze or why you get hiccups? Or sneeze or why do we get goosebumps and especially those times when we want to remember something, yet cannot recollect it instantly. Scientists have decoded the reason behind it and many other phenomena that take place in our body. You will be glad to read them all here.
Sneezing is nothing but our body’s way of getting rid of allergens, microbes, dust, or other irritants that fill our nasal passages sometimes. This is how the body gets rid of the ‘trash’.
Wrinkle on skin
Such wrinkling of skin happens it gets exposed to a lot of moistures. With the increased amount of moisture, the body understands that the environment might be slippery and, hence, immediately begins to change in a way that will make it easier for you to grip smooth surfaces.
It is very common for anyone to get goosebumps when exposed to chilly winds. However, what many not know is that goosebumps occur to reduce the amount of heat our bodies lose through the pores of our skin. The occurrence of goosebumps actually makes it easier to warm ourselves in such climatic conditions.
Sense of falling while asleep
It is very common for people to have a sense of falling while in sleep. While a few get the experience quite frequently, others don’t. But for all of us, it is a part of the defense mechanism of our body. Studies explain that when we begin to fall asleep, the frequency of our breathing rapidly falls. This results in falling of the pulse rate as well, which the brain interprets as heralding death. So it tries to save you by giving you a jolt to wake up
Hiccups come with no warning, completely out of blue and can quickly become bothersome for all of us. But did you know that they are actually a part of our body’s defence mechanism? Yes, hiccups are there to signify problems in the brain, spinal cord or any of the structures around the diaphragm. It occurs when we eat very quickly, swallow large pieces of food, or simply overeat, which in turn irritates our pneumogastric nerve.
Believe it or not but most cases of memory loss have been recorded after the person has had an unpleasant experience, making many believe that memory losses are our body’s way of deleting the most terrible moments from our memories.
Stretch while working
An action as simple as the stretching of our body has an explanation too. It works on our muscles, restoring the blood flow and improves our mood.
So next time when you sneeze or get goose bumps, think about the real reason behind it and don’t get irritated!
