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.

Worked like a charm! My 6yr old had hiccups so we first tried holding his breath, nothing, then tried rubbing his right ear lobe, nope, next we tried the glass with spoon and hiccups stopped immediately!! We were both pretty amazed!

Hi, Jerry from Albany Ny again..I just wrote to you about my hemorrhoids problem and hopefully you'll email me back with your suggestions. However, I just remembered a cure for Hiccups that an old time waitress gave my friend and I after we were out drinking and stopped for breakfast.

She told my friend (who was hicupping for about half-hr. that she would be right back..She came back with a "Glass" not plastic of water with a spoon in it..She told him to drink the water but you must let the spoon constantly touch your cheek..

Believe it or not, when he finished drinking the glass of water his hiccups stopped and never came back..
I thoght it was just luck, but several wks later at my sister's house she got the hiccups and I told her to do the same and she did and yep, they went away again...Fate, luck or whatever...

I would pass it on...
thanks...
Jerry..
