Remedy For Hiccups


Ugh! They can be so annoying!

As children or even adults we are told so many different remedies to cure hiccups such as holding your breath, have someone scare you, stand on your head, or jump on one foot while singing the alphabet. Yes I made up the last one.

A few years ago I read somewhere that the best remedy for the hiccups is, are you ready for this?

Peanut Butter.

Yes, peanut butter!

I thought, "hmmm I will try that next time I have the hiccups and see if it really works."

 Know what?

It does!

Every time my children have the hiccups they instantly ask for a spoonful of peanut butter.

Don't believe me?

Try it next time you have the hiccups.

Just one spoonful of peanut butter takes the hiccups away!

  1. is to give the victum, er sufferer, a half glass of water and get them to drink it, in 5-7 swallows, while placing your fingers in their ears. The trick is to insert a finger just large enough to fill the entance to the canal so that when they swallow you can feel the changing size of the canal. The snug fit actually restricts some of the movements in the canal and relieves the nerves that are causing the hiccups.

    A finger too large doesn't get in deep enough and too small of a finger doesn't restrict the movement enough.
