Pain and Gain

In this episode, we’ll show you how to maximize well-being by minimizing pain. In order to do that, you’re going to have to be willing to experience discomfort first. This episode might hurt a little, but it’s going to help a lot! We’ll demonstrate how a common household item can easily help reduce pain, and how you can get a shot without feeling the sting. We’ll explore the reasons why people curse so much when they get hurt, and why a bucket of ice water can get your heart rate down in just 20 seconds. Finally, we’ll test out the reliability of hypnotism as our volunteer gets dental work done without any anesthesia. Watch and find out how to hack into your body and minimize some aches and pains — even make a few of them disappear.
