Is anyone familiar with the segula to wear your yarmulka inside out when you have a headache in order to help alleviate the symptoms? Is anyone familiar with the source? It works for me many times.February 5, 2012 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #849546popa_bar_abbaParticipant
There have been many studies on this, and they have concluded that it really works.
(Google “study placebo effect”).February 5, 2012 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #849547
If you believe it works, do it.

Gm – the reason the boys do it when it rains is because the lining tends to shrink more than the velvet (I’m assuming that they are velvet kippas) and when they are wet it is best to stretch them out over the head well so that they will fit properly when they dry again. My boys do this when we wash the kippas – no going into the dryer Mommy, please!February 6, 2012 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #849559
I recall hearing that wearing clothing inside out can cause one to forget their learning.
I wore my yarmulka inside out when it was raining so I cant remember the m’kor.February 6, 2012 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #849560
Yungerman: I don’t think it makes them forget their learning. I think it’s one of the things on the list of those which are a Bizayon for a Talmid Chacham to do (Shabbos 114a and the Rambam somewhere in Hilchos Dei’os, I think).February 6, 2012 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #849561
Sam2- I believe the sefer ????? ???? ????? in Siman Ayin says its ??? ?????February 6, 2012 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #849562
Interesting. I’ll look at the Gemara again but I don’t recall it that way. These are all also mostly brought down in the first Siman of the Aruch Hashulchan, I believe.
