How to get rid of hiccups?

Blow all the air out or as much as you can from ur lungs,Hold like that 3-5 seconds,woah! Hiccups Gone!!!!

scare you?????

Accupauncture has been scientifically proven to be a hoax because it's like a plasebo, it's all in your head.

Listen. This always works for me. Put a pencil on each ear (not inside!!!) and wait 5 minutes. Hicups are gone!!!

stand upside down on your hands for as long as you can.. lean on a wall if you have to

According to the Chineese medicine you have an accopuncture point on your back ..about 10 inches below the shoulder..2 inches to the left of your vertebra..if you exert pressure with your thumb the hicups will dissapear like magic..This is the virtue of Shihatsu

get someone to frigten you

hold your breath for 60 seconds. if that doesn't work try drinking a glass of water

Fill a glass half full of water and drink it upside down.

Libertarians 4 real choice
Take a slice of lemon and cover it with sugar, and if you have it, bitters. Pop it in your mouth and chew it rapidly and swallow. Works about 90% of the time.

Recently, my nephew taught me how to get rid of them almost 100% of the time. You relax and focus on calming the spot right around your solar plexus, breathing in and out slowly. I thought he was full of it, but I've since tried it several times and it works.

- drink water.
- hold your braet for about 1 minute.

There's nothing more frustrating than a bad case of hiccups. Most cases of hiccups only cause minor annoyance and pass quickly. They can affect anyone. Many pregnant women will tell you that they have even felt their unborn child hiccup in the womb.

Hiccups are repetitive, involuntary, short intakes of breath accompanied by a distinctive sound.

Hiccups are caused by involuntary spasms of the diaphragm, causing a short, involuntary intake of breath. The intake of breath is stopped by the glottis (a valve in the oesophagus), which suddenly closes, producing the characteristic sound.

Common triggers are those things that irritate the nerves of the diaphragm, including:

Carbonated drinks

Eating too quickly and not chewing food sufficiently

Swallowing too much air (e.g. talking whilst eating)

Frequent episodes of hiccups may indicate an imbalance of the digestive system.

Natural Therapies
The treatment of recurrent hiccups centres on addressing underlying digestive problems.

Herbs such as dandelion root and gentian may be indicated to stimulate the production of the gastric juices required for efficient food digestion

Chamomile tea is calming and antispasmodic and may help to relieve the spasm of the diaphragm
Only the most persistent and troublesome cases of hiccups require medication. Consult your healthcare practitioner if home remedies fail to resolve your hiccups in a reasonable amount of time.

Always take time to chew your food properly, and don't eat with your mouth open.

Avoid carbonated beverages such as beer and soft drink.
