Hiccup
Herbal & Home Remedies Herbal Remedies Home Remedies

Hiccups, or hiccoughs as some people call them, is a mystery ailment with no known purpose. In general, they almost always pass within minutes. In rare cases, they last for a few days.

Usually, hiccuping is an entirely benign, if annoying, phenomenon. Any number of mundane circumstances can set off a bout in susceptible people. Perhaps the most common trigger is swallowing air, usually from eating too fast, chewing gum, or drinking carbonated beverages.

Some people hiccup in response to alcohol or spicy foods and drinks. Stress and excitement also are possible instigators.

  • Try pulling the tongue with your fingers
  • Stimulating the back of the throat or roof of the mouth with the index finger
  • While sitting, leaning forward and compressing the chest and diaphragm against the knees
  • One of the best home remedy for hiccups is to drink water recurrently in short interval.
