"Hiccup cures" are great examples of the ridiculous things that humans will believe based solely on coincidence.

hiccups are a spasm in your diaphragm not your mouth or throat
the basis of her "invention" is flawed
the only thing any of these "cures" do is waste time while the spasm dissipates on its own

Yeah, you can do all of that. Or just stop being a tight arsed git and buy a cheap lolly to cure it.

sucking on something sugary in general helps, i had the hiccups while working on a project in a library, the librarian gave me one of the tiny tootsie rolls and told me if I sucked on it instead of just eating it they would go away...and they did. ...Also placing a paper towel over a glass of water and drinking through the towel helps too.

why would I pay for something when it`s easy enough to get rid of them for free? Hold deep breath 10 seconds, inhale, hold 5, inhale, hold 5. It works... My nana will stand behind you and grab just above the earlobes gently and that works too, oddly.

Just take a moderately deep breath and hold it by closing your throat, then relax your diaphragm.

I guess it would be nice to have one of those around the house just in case. Also I want her hair.

Really? I just hold my breath as deep as I can for a while and then my hiccups are gone.

That`s great that she figured that out, but I don`t realistically see a market for this. Why go out of your way to buy a product to get rid of your hiccups, when it`s so easy to do it yourself for free within seconds?

Lol, xiquiripat. I agree. I can`t even belch/burp, but usually when I feel it coming on a bit, I can make something happen. When I have the hiccups, I just hold my breath until I feel the air wants to be released, then squeeze until I burp a little.

When you feel a hiccup coming on force air down your throat and you`ll burp instead. 2-3 times and its gone. Easy and you don`t have to pay some 13 year old twerp.

So you expect me to buy these and carry them everywhere just in case? I guess if you really hate them, but I`ll stick with water, it`s easier to get a hold of when I need it.

Also, is really a cure if it`s something that happens randomly and will return.

Hiccups are a glitch in the diaphragm.
I can follow her thinking though; swallowing closes the airway to prevent liquid going into the lungs instead of the stomach. Similar to drinking a glass of water (backwards or otherwise), you are temporarily reducing the amount of oxygen in your system. The diaphragm is a muscle, and like all muscles when forced to work anaerobically (i.e. without oxygen) it will slow down and stop any abnormal behaviour.
So, yeah, I understand her concept. Still wouldn`t pay for it when holding my breath works just as well for free.

The vinegar hiccup-cure is old as the hills, first shown me by my great Grandma. But if she can make a few bucks at it, good for her!!

Yeah, well done and all but... I just don`t get the point. Is holding your breath or drinking a bunch of water hard to do or something?

Wouldn`t it be a chocking hazard for kids to eat lollipops while they have hiccups?
