In the past I have always been able to cease hiccups with the holding breath method. This evening I tried for at least 20 minutes holding my breath and for some reason it wasn't working. Got on Earth Clinic and tried the peanut butter technique. After one spoonful of peanut butter, not one hiccup! I love this website!

Yet another "yay" for drinking water upside-down. I filled my mouth with water, bent waaay over, and then swallowed. I didn't hiccup once after the first swallow, but I did it 3 more times, just in case. I now have a slight... awareness (not even enough to say "discomfort") in my chest, beside my sternum, over my right breast, but I think that's only because I used really cold water :-) Thank you, everyone, for this cure!

Suffered a bout of hiccups for over 12 hours. I tried a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar as advised on Earth Clinic and the hiccups stopped almost immediately. So far so good. Thanks for the natural remedy advice.

My thirteen year old daughter gets terrible hiccups. Loud and violent and hard to get rid of. I was the same way when I was young, and so was my mother. They can be downright exhausting! They can also be embarrassing. One time I was at Carlsbad Caverns, on a tour, in a cave, hiccuping. They echoed!

So this morning my daughter got hiccups. She tried many of her usual things to get rid of them and she could not get rid of them. Finally they abated, only to return in the afternoon for another long round of hiccupping.

Before dinner, they came again. She said, "Well, vinegar will probably work." She poured herself a spoonful of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and took it straight and chased it with water. She hasn't hiccuped since!

The drink upside down technique for hiccups worked amazingly well. My husband was suffering from recurring hiccups for 10 minutes due to fullness. He didn't eat a lot, but felt very full. I suggested this remedy. He hiccuped through the first 2 sips and then completely stopped on the fourth. He said he felt like he was on the verge of hiccuping and took a mouthful, bent at the waist and swallowed one more time. He stopped hiccuping completely or feeling like he was going to hiccup. We could not stop laughing - it was unbelievable!

Hi! I would like to share with you something very important about hiccups elemination. Everybody please rest assured. Hiccups are curable. 100%. In a matter of seconds. Sounds unbelievable, but is true. Everybody say good-bye to any hiccups sufferings, or mere annoyance from ordinary hiccuping. You will be free to do anything you want, the way you want, enjoy eating your food any way - too fast, or too much, or fat and spicy, enjoy anything in life, that might trigger hiccuping, and in case you are bothered by hiccups, you will just laugh at them. Because I got the UNHICCUPER, or the HICCUPS BUSTER, that gets you rid of hiccups in just 15 seconds, every time without fail. This dream cure is the only working one on the planet and will get the world rid of hiccups once and for all. There will be no more uncontrollable, or unstoppable hiccups. Them hiccups will become history. Everybody will know how to get rid of hiccups and will forget, that hiccuping ever was a problem. Many factors cause hiccups, but finally all of them result in spasms of the diaphragm. The main effect of the unhiccuper is in getting your diaphragm rid of spasms. You can do it everywhere in case you start hiccuping. It is very easy and 100% safe and effective.

Here is what to do:

Either standing or sitting in a chair, lean your head backwards as much as you can, to the maximum. Breathe normally. Count up to 15. Slowly bring your head back to normal position. The hiccups are gone (for a long time).

Drink Water Without Breathing

I can't believe I only recently learned of this. My mother actually told me about it. I had always tried unsuccessfully to just hold my breath. It never worked well. Now, I take a deep breath and sip water to roughly the count of ten. It has worked perfectly two times now. It is my new favorite remedy for hiccups! I hope this helps someone else.


Rolaids

Other antacids may also work but back when I had indigestion all the time, I also had hiccups and the Rolaids always worked.

BTW, the indigestion, hiatal hernia and acid reflux was all due to chronic dehydration. Since I started drinking plain water, I haven't had any of that nor hiccups so I suppose hiccups might also be a sign of dehydration, I don't know but, indigestion is definitely a sign of chronic dehydration. If one gets indigestion, one is chronically dehydrated. If you have the hiatal hernia and acid reflux, you're quite dehydrated.

One day I developed hiccups during my high school chemistry class. My chemistry teacher made me get up and drink a cup of water while bending over from the waist. It worked!! Since then, I have altered the technique by getting a mouthful of water, then bending over and swallowing. Sometimes I have to repeat this several times in a row, but the hiccups always go away.

Thank you, wanted to say that my 28 year old son was up all night with hiccups and told me when I woke up. I said go to Earth Clinic, we tried the peanut butter and it worked instantly! You guys are awesome!

When my toddler son has hiccups which is almost weekly I dip my wet finger in a homemade blend of sea salts and place in his mouth. I chase it with a drink of water and he is good almost instantaneously.

Another yay! Had a bad case of hiccups I took about three gulps of water out of a cup upside down using a straw (I didnt follow one persons post of upper lip on rim of cup) and worked like a charm. Try it. It works! Sara

I have been miserable with the hiccups for the last hour. Just tried drinking water upside down and I can't believe it worked! Thank God, I thought my chest was going to explode!


Drink Water With Spoon in It

I have had hiccups all day and tried holding my breath, which stopped the hiccups for a while but then they came back. I also tried drinking water upside down which I found hard to do and it did not work.

Thank goodness for your website! I looked up remedies and was sceptical about the one describing drinking water with a spoon in it but I tried it, making sure to use a big tablespoon and keeping the handle next to my cheek the whole time as I chugged down a big glass of water and now my hiccups have completely disappeared!

Thanks again earthclinic community. This site is the best site for finding great home remedies.
