98 Home Remedies for Hiccoughs


Learned this one in 1992. Has worked for me every time. Get a large glass of water, and then hold your breath for ten seconds. After the initial ten seconds, while still holding your breath, take ten sips of water. Never exhale, and repeat (holding breath/drinking) the process until you can not breathe anymore. Should take 30-45 seconds if done correctly.


A teaspoon of vinegar. Works every time. I don't like raw peanut butter taste (and I've heard of flaws) But the vinegar works perfect!


Hiccoughs can be gone instantly! Everyone I know has had success and you don't have to be coordinated at all! Take a full teaspoon of peanut butter and try to swallow as much of it at once as you can. Hiccoughs are gone.


Breathe in through your mouth until you can't anymore and hold it, then breathe in through your nose until you can't anymore and hold it. Wait for as long as you can, then slowly let your breath out.


Quickly turn your head to the right like you're trying to look at something behind you. Hold to the count of 10. Works for me about 90% of the time.


Quickest fix for hiccaughs I've ever seen. Get about a cup of regular old water and go sit down somewhere. Bend at waist with your head near the floor and start drinking. It's odd at that angle and a tad bit hard to tip cup without spilling but it works!


I tend bar & this really works. Drink a shot of Roses of Lime. Will cure even the deepest hiccoughs


Ok. This is the true hiccough cure. It works every time. Instead of holding your breath, take a deep breath then exhale through your mouth slowly. As if you were whistling. Then, keep blowing air out until your lungs are completely empty. Breath in slowly, and they should be gone!


Okay... My mom always had us take a pencil and place it as far back as possible in your mouth (comparable to bitting a horse) and bite down on it. Then, drink a glass of water. Try to get the whole thing down without choking. It really works. So does the one about swallowing air from the opposite side of the glass.


One successful way of getting rid of this problem that has worked for me and my friends is to take about a 1/2 or whole shot of whiskey.. Works every time..
