Hiccups are a result of involuntary contractions of the diaphragm. These contractions causes the vocal cords to close very quickly, making the hiccup sound.

Hiccups are often triggered after a large meal, consuming alcoholic or carbonated beverages or sudden excitement. But sometimes it could be symptoms of an underlying medical condition.

Most hiccups go on their own, but some stay longer, causing irritation and interfere with eating and talking.

Below are natural remedies to get rid of Hiccups:

• Drink a glass of water quickly.

• Swallow a teaspoon of sugar.

• Breathe into a paper bag.

• Close your nose and ears while sipping water.

• Apply pressure on pressure points, like pulling your tongue or pressing your palm with your thumb.

• Suck on a lemon. You could add salt to the lemon slice.

• Practice controlled breathing. You can hold your breathe for 10 to 20 seconds, then breathe out slowly.

• Gargle ice water for 30 seconds. Repeat as necessary.

• Lean or bend forward to compress your chest, putting pressure on your diaphragm.

If the hiccups persist for more than 48 hours, go to your doctor. Especially if it causes eating and sleeping problems or comes along with fever, stomach pain, vomiting out blood or shortness of breath.
