2. "If you have trouble hearing someone at a party or on the phone, use your right ear." “It’s better at picking up rapid speech. But, the left is better at picking up music tones.” [I have no idea if it works for a lot of people, or not. It sometimes seems to work for me]

4. "Next time the doctor's going to give you an injection, cough as the needle is going in." “Coughing causes a sudden, temporary rise in pressure in the chest, inhibiting the pain-conducting work of the spinal cord — leading to pain-free injections.” Source (above Quora link): www.quora.com...

When you sleep on your right, the stomach is higher than the oesophagus allowing food and stomach acid to slide up your throat.
.
Remember, it is not advisable for you to go to bed immediately after eating. Wait for 2 to 3 hours.”

I've not tried the sinus thing. Wish I'd known about it when I still had so many of those problems. Usually, my using a MesoSilver (TM) in my Neil Med (TM) squeeze bottle sinus wash fixes such things in short order, now.
.
The source doc seems to have a ton more 'hacks' for those interested. If your attention span is shorter, the OP link might be enough for your bother.
