A Trick to Prevent Brain Freeze

Three Ways to Get Rid of It

August 7, 2018

Brain freeze happens when something cold touches a bundle of nerves on the top of your mouth, near the back. 

If you are eating ice cream and need a way to deal with brain freeze, just turn your spoon upside down helps, because it allows your tongue to heat up the ice cream a little bit before there's any direct contact with that group of nerves.

However, that won't really work with something like a Slurpee though and it could still happen with ice cream, even if you do the spoon trick. 

So we've also got three quick ways to GET RID of brain freeze . . .

1.  Press your thumb up into the roof of your mouth to warm the nerves back up.  

2.  Breathe with your hands cupped over your mouth.  

3.  Drink something hot.
