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!

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?

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!!

Peanut butter cured my son's hiccups. My step son had the hiccups this morning. Hiccups are bad for him because he is going through chemo and hiccups sometimes cause him to vomit. I found the peanut butter cure on your website and tried it. It worked! I was so surprised and happy that I told my wife about it on the phone (she was at work) and she said that she had known about the peanut butter cure for years and had always used it. Thanks to Kristopher from Houston and to Earth Clinic.

A teaspoon of peanut butter has worked to cure hiccups for myself, my wife, my son, my mother and just about every other member of my family and any of the friends I've told.

Placing a pencil crosswise in your mouth and holding it with your teeth and then drinking water until you have to take a breath, stops hiccups.

My hubby had a bad case of hiccups 16 years ago. He was heading out to the car to put our lunch stuff away, carrying an onion in a baggie, he rolled the baggie down and took a bite or two. The hiccups were immediately gone and he didn't get another one for 14 years (seriously). At work one day (about two years ago) he had a hiccup and was getting ready to eat his sandwich, took out some of the onion and chewed it up. The hiccups did not continue. This morning I was making his steak sandwich and hiccuping from the fridge to the table, etc. I decided to take a couple slices of the onion and - voila! Not another hiccup. I'd heard him talk about it for years, but until today I never tried it. I'm a true believer now.

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.

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.

Let me give you my cure for hiccups. I have been using this method for years and have never had it fail to work. Before I found this cure I would sometimes get the hiccups and it would last for hours. I use regular white sugar. Use 1 heaping teaspoon but the key is how you do it. You have to hold your breath and then dump the sugar down your throat all at one time and swallow it and keep on holding your breath for as long as possible. It will not work if you don't hold your breath. It really does work. I know this is a problem for a lot of people so, good luck!

Yes, this is a great remedy for hiccups and my mom used to give this to us kids growing up. One teaspoon always did the trick. I never heard before that there was a special way to take this, but I do know that eating that whole teaspoon of white sugar never failed. Honey would be more nutritious than white sugar, but I don't know if honey would work for hiccups.

I found out many years ago that a level teaspoon of sugar with a few drops of water will stop the hiccups right away.

I just came on to post this remedy. altho mine is slightly different. when i had bad hiccups in my young teens, for some reason, i grabbed the brown sugar and a glass of boiling water. i musta added 2 good heaping tablespoons. after a few sips, the hiccups were gone. i did this alot in my younger years, but as i got older, either i had no access to brown sugar, or didn't bother as they did go away on their own. but today was wicked. they were bad. so i tried the brown sugar/boiling water again, and it wasn't as effective. the only thing i could figure was, i only used a small amt of sugar. i developed an intolerance to sugar, and very wary of it. it did subside and eventually go away, but not as quick as in my younger days.

years ago i also tried it with white sugar, and it worked, just not as well as brown.

As an adult, I've found myself getting hiccups more often than I used to (once every week or two), especially over the last 3-4 years.

Whenever I get the hiccups, my boyfriend is there for me with the sugar because it really, really works.

When swallowing the sugar, I try to make sure it goes to the back of my throat so I can swallow it rather than just eating it. Otherwise, it doesn't work as well. As a previous YEA responder said, you should make sure you swallow the sugar at once or it may take a 2nd packet/spoonful or not work at all.

I've never had a bout of hiccups last past 2 packets of sugar since I found this remedy a few years back, and will carry sugar with me wherever I go for the rest of my life.

Wonderful cheap, fast remedy!
