Hiccups really do go away with sugar under the tongue. It works no matter what your age. I have used this technique on my children, my husband, and myself. It works great.


Drink Upside Down

I am 56 years old and my grandmother taught me to drink water upside down. It works 100% of the time. As previous posts mentioned you must drink with your upper lip on the rim and drink while bending over and sucking air at the same time. It's weird sounding until you finally figure out that it works every time.

it doesnt matter how you get the liquid in your mouth.
just get a mouthfull of any drink. look down almost like your trying to turn your head upside down.
it will feel like the liquid is gooing to flow into the nasal pasage.
then.....swallow!!!
hiccups are gone!!! everytime!!!

I learned this trick when I was 14. I suffer from very frequent and VERY painful hiccups. I just fill my mouth with as much water as it will hold, bend completely over at the waist, and then swallow. Usually I have to do this 3 or 4 times right in a row but it always works! ! !

Yea! Hello everybody from our wonderful earth clinic community! It seem to be that the action of swallowing while the diaphragm is compressed and not moving with our breathing stop hiccup after 2 to 5 swallows. Even when I don't have water handy , I just take a deep breath block it , bend and swallow a bit of saliva a few time without breathing and the diaphragm go back to behave normally: no more hiccup! Peace!

I was a bartender too. You're right about the lemons. I would take just one lemon wedge, give it a quick suck, and hiccups....GONE! It took some talking to get my customers to try it, but once they did....they were amazed!

after one week of hiccups the cure has been a level teaspoon of honey which stops the undesirable effect after two to three minutes, overall condition improving. Tried most of the above cures but to no good effect.

My husband had an epidural shot done and the next day he had the hiccups which continued for 4 days and we became alarmed and called the doctor. The doctor said it was nothing to be concerned about and just to deal with it basically. Well his chest was starting to hurt real bad from the constant hiccuping so I started to research remedies for this. I am just AMAZED that a teaspoon of peanut butter did the trick! Wish I would have researched sooner but he is happy they are gone!

Hiccups, Whenever I get a case of the hiccups I usually eat grapes! Red, green, black. It works! Just eat three or four grapes, its gotta be something in the skins!

This simple remedy really worked: I put some water in my mouth, bent over forward with my head pointed to my toes, and then swallowed. After that, my hiccups were instantly gone!


Peanut Butter

It's the first thing I try and I always suggest it to other people. They are amazed. I take a heaping tablespoon of creamy peanut butter all in one swallow. Its hard to swallow a lump of peanut butter but thats just what makes it work, it forces your diaphram and esophagus stop spasming. Plus who doesnt love an excuse to eat that much peanut butter by the spoonfull?

I had hiccups forever, and a friend of mine looked straight at me and said, "If you hiccup again, I'll buy you a case of beer!"' They went away ASAP. I've done it with several friends and it works! Try it.

re: Drinking up-side-down- hiccups -- My brother taught it to me a few years ago. It has never failed me yet. Just get as much water in your mouth as you can, put your head between your knees, and swallow. Every once in a while you'll have to do it two or three times, but it usually works on your first try.

I was a bartender and there is a cure for hiccups I did not see. A shot of lemon juice and the hiccups are gone.

Vinegar worked for my hiccups! Had them for over 20 minutes - tried holding my breath and drinking water with no avail. Took one shot of organic ACV and they were gone. I'm amazed! Thanks!!

My 12-year-old grandson was having a bout of hiccups, and complaining noisily that it wouldn't go away. I took him with me to the computer, checked your web site, saw the remedy about a teaspoon of peanut butter. We went to the refrigerator and found a jar of peanut butter. I dug out a teaspoon of the peanut butter and gave it to him. Within a couple of minutes the hiccups stopped. Amazing!!

It's wonderful to know the amazing effects of Vinegar. One man 72 years old had constant hiccups for 2 days and more when he consulted me. I gave him this bit of advice to take 1 tsp of vinegar and his hiccups stopped instantly ... It's almost a month he has never had it again
