I have added this page to my site with hopes that it will help someone.  I cannot guarantee it will help everyone, but dont take my word for it.  Look below for some testimonials (over 10,000 as of July 2016, and more are added almost daily)!  This information is absolutely free of charge but we can also take a small PayPal donation if youre so inclined.

We also have another page filled with older testimonials.  They were moved to speed up the loading of this page as it grew too large.  Please be patient while the archive page loads, particularly if you have a slower connection.  Click here for the complete testimonials page.



In a hurry?  Click here to skip my introductory rambling & disclaimer and get right to the cure!


I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV.  However, I believe I have found a cure for hiccups that takes only 30 seconds and requires no extra props.  I initially discovered this around 1994, and Ive been using it successfully ever since.  In late 2004 I decided to post it on the Internet.  I do not know how or why this works, and if by chance you might be a doctor or have other knowledge of why this works, please let me know.

I have seen many cures for hiccups.... drinking a glass of water, having someone scare you (get real), breathing into a paper bag, etc.  If anything, many of these cures seem like cures because eventually the hiccups go away.  To me, that isnt a cure.... it is something to do until the hiccups go away!  And some of these cures sound ridiculous, if not impossible to do (ever try standing on your head while drinking a glass of water?!?).  The cure I use is easy to do and the results are immediate.  All it takes is 30 seconds to try it, and you dont need any props, such as paper bags, water, etc.  You can do it anytime, anywhere.  You have nothing to lose but your hiccups!  And I even offer a click-back guarantee.  If my cure doesnt work for you, click your browsers Back button and go back to your search page.  :)

Before I actually get to the cure, I should say that although I see no harm in doing this, persons with abnormally low lung capacity, lung/breathing problems, or other medical conditions might want to consult a doctor first.  Not that I expect anything bad to happen, but dont blame me if it does!  :)  I have also received a couple emails from worried people with extremely bad cases of hiccups.  While I still see no harm in trying my cure, if you get hiccups very violently or very often, you really should see a doctor.  Ive never heard of anyone dying from hiccups, so I wouldnt get too worked up about it, but if you get hiccups so bad that you cant breathe or they are seriously disrupting your life, you should see a doctor.  While they probably wont have much else to offer for a cure, they may be able to help find the cause.  There are many different causes (some unknown), but some I have heard of are certain medications, certain types of foods, stress, alcohol, and drinking or eating too fast.

Having gotten the disclaimer out of the way, here we go:
If done correctly, the whole process should take around 30 seconds, and your hiccups will be gone.  This has never failed me, and from the testimonials below, it seems to work for many people.  I believe that for those that it does not work for, they are not repeating steps 3 and 4 as many times as they can.  When you think you cannot possibly swallow again, try to do it anyway; same goes for inhaling.  It also seems that not letting any air out during the process is important.  If you hiccup while trying to do this, try not to exhale after the hiccup (the hiccup will force more air IN, working with you).  If you do let air out, it is best to start over from step 1.  It has also been reported by one visitor of this site that it seemed to work better standing (particularly as opposed to laying down), but I have done it successfully both standing and sitting down.  Your experience may vary.

I have been doing this many years, and it always works for me.  This is similar to another cure I have heard, which is to hold your breath.  That alone has never worked for me.  Somehow I got the idea to add swallowing to it, and the result was success.  An interesting side-effect is that (for me at least) for around 15 or 20 seconds after doing this, you feel like you want to hiccup, but it never happens.  I am not sure if this is because you expect to hiccup again or what, but the nice thing is the hiccups do not return.

If you have tried this and it does not work, I suggest repeating steps 3 and 4 at least one more time than you were able to originally.  And of course, while it does seem to work for almost everyone I have told, it is possible that it will not work for everybody.  Although I personally feel that the problem is not the method, but rather the execution of it; of course I am a bit biased.  :)

If you have tried this and it DID work for you, great!  I would love to hear about it too, so submit a testimonial and let me know.  I will add it to the testimonials below just as soon as I can.  Some of those who have written suggested that I find a way to charge for this "cure".  Before adding my cure to the internet, I had a look around at some of the other cures available.  Believe it or not, I came across one that actually did require you to pay before receiving the cure - which may not even work!  I will not charge any money for my cure, although I will take PayPal Donations if you feel so inclined.  Donations are welcome of course but are not required.

Finally, thanks for reading this page.  I do hope it helps you get rid of those hiccups!  If you did not have any luck, I wish you the best in your search to cure your hiccups.

For overall best results, please try to do the steps as quickly as you can and try very hard not to let any air out.  If you are not literally struggling to swallow at the end then you are probably not quite doing it right.

Step 1: Start by inhaling through your mouth until your lungs feel full (when it feels like you cannot inhale any more.... your lungs will basically stop taking in air).

Step 2: Swallow.  You are not really swallowing anything but it seems that without this act, it doesnt work.  Do not let any air out.

Step 3: Now inhale some more until your lungs feel full again.  You may not be able to inhale a lot, but do get some more air in.  It will start to get difficult to do this as you go, but keep trying.  You obviously cant suck in as much air as you did initially, but just a little will do (think of it as taking a sip of air but directly into your lungs).

Step 4: Swallow again.  This too will start to get difficult as you go.  Do not let any air out.

Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 (inhale and swallow) until you cannot swallow again.  While it seems you can almost always suck in just a little more air, it is actually the swallowing that gets to be impossible.  When you feel like you cannot swallow again, swallow again anyway.  It will be hard to do, your face will probably turn red, and you may make squeaking sounds.  But you CAN swallow one last time.  By this time, your lungs should also be quite full and it should be difficult to get much more air in as well.  While you should try not to let any air out, if you have really repeated steps 3 and 4 as many times as you can, you probably will end up letting a little air out before you can take that last swallow.  If you find that air keeps escaping out of your nose even early in the process, try squeezing it shut with your fingers.

Step 6: Exhale.

Una cura per il singhiozzo, in 30 secondi.

Per un risultato ottimale, cerca di compiere le fasi nel minor tempo possibile e fai attenzione a trattenere il respiro.

1) Inizia inalando attraverso la bocca fino a riempire i polmoni (quando senti di non poter inalare pi i tuoi polmoni smetteranno di riempirsi d'aria).

2) Deglutisci. Non che tu stia veramente deglutendo qualcosa, ma il metodo senza questa azione non sembra funzionare. Continua a trattenere il respiro.

3) Ora (senza aver esalato) inala di nuovo finch i tuoi polmoni non saranno nuovamente pieni. Potresti non riuscire ad inalare molto, ma fai entrare un altro po' d'aria. Diventer sempre pi difficile, ma continua a provare. Ovviamente l'aria che entrer sar molta meno di quella della prima volta, ma baster (pensa di prendere un sorso d'aria direttamente nei polmoni).

4) Deglutisci di nuovo. Anche questo diventer mano a mano pi difficile. Continua a trattenere il respiro.

5) Ripeti 3) e 4) (Inala e Deglutisci) finch non riesci pi a deglutire. Riuscirai sempre a inalare un po' d'aria, ma deglutire dopo un po' diventa impossibile. Quando senti di non poter pi deglutire, provaci comunque. Sar difficile, magari la tua faccia diventer rossa o farai qualche rumore stridente con la gola. Ma puoi deglutire un'ultima volta. A questo punto i tuoi polmoni dovrebbero essere pieni e dovrebbe essere difficile anche inalare. Anche se devi continuare a trattenere il respiro, se hai veramente ripetuto 3) e 4) il pi possibile, probabilmente lascerai uscire un po' d'aria prima di deglutire. Se anche prima l'aria ti esce dal naso, prova a tapparlo.

6) Esala.
Шаг 1: Начните вдыхать через рот до тех пор, пока ваши легкие чувствовать себя полным (когда он чувствует, как вы, не может вдохнуть больше.... ваши легкие будут в основном прекратить прием в воздухе).

Шаг 2: Проглотить. Вы на самом деле не глотая что-нибудь, но кажется, что без этого закона, он не работает. Не допускайте выхода воздуха.

Шаг 3: Теперь вдохните еще несколько раз, пока ваши легкие чувствовать себя полным снова. Вы не можете быть в состоянии вдыхать много, но не больше воздуха. Она начнет получать трудно сделать это, когда вы идете, но стараться. Вы, очевидно, не может сосать в ровно столько воздуха, сколько вы сделали изначально, но чуть-чуть сделаю (думаю, это как “глот ок” воздуха, но непосредственно в легкие).

Шаг 4: Ласточка снова. Это тоже будет начать, чтобы получить сложно, как вы идете. Не выдохом воздуха при вдохе.

Шаг 5: Повторите шаги 3 и 4 (вдох и " ласточка") до тех пор, пока вы не в состоянии проглотить снова. Хотя, кажется, можно почти всегда, всасывая в себя чуть больше воздуха, и это на самом деле глотания, что становится невозможным. Когда вы чувствуете, что вы не можете снова глотать, глотать снова так или иначе. Это будет трудно сделать, ваше лицо будет, вероят но, станет Красной, и вы можете сделать скрипящих звуков. Но вы МОЖЕТЕ проглотить последний раз. К этому времени ваши легкие должны быть также довольно полная, и оно должно быть трудно получить намного больше воздуха. Хотя вы должны попробовать, чтобы не позволить любой из воздуха, если у вас действительно повторяются шаги 3 и 4 столько раз, сколь ко вы можете, вы, вероятно, в конечном итоге давая вдохнуть немного свежего воздуха, прежде чем вы можете сделать этот последний глоток. Если вы обнаружите, что воздух держит побега из носа даже в самом начале процесса, попробуйте сжимая он закрыл пальцами.

Шаг 6: Выдох.

Stop de Hik in 30 seconden.

1. Adem in via uw mond tot uw longen helemaal vol voelen. (Wanneer het voelt dat je niet meer kunt inademen...zullen uw longen ook geen lucht meer opnemen)

2. Slik. Je slikt niet echt iets door, maar het lijkt dat zonder deze stap de kuur niet werkt. Laat geen lucht ontsnappen.

3. Adem iets meer in tot uw longen weer helemaal vol voelen. Je zult waarschijnlijk niet veel kunnen inademen, maar doe zoveel mogelijk. Het zal moeilijk worden maar blijf proberen. Natuurlijk kan je niet zoveel inademen als de eerste keer, maar zelfs een beetje maakt het verschil. ( Zie het als een slokje lucht rechtstreeks in je longen)

4. Slik opnieuw. Dit wordt ook moeilijker. Laat geen lucht ontsnappen.

5. Herhaal stappen 3 en 4 ( inademen en slikken) tot je niet meer kunt slikken. Het lijkt alsof je altijd nog een beetje lucht kunt inademen, maar het is het slikken dat echt moeilijker wordt. Wanneer het voelt dat je echt niet meer kunt slikken, slik toch nog een keer. Het zal moeilijk zijn om te doen, je gezicht zal waarschijnlijk rood worden, en je maakt misschien vreemde geluidjes, maar je KAN nog een laatste maal slikken. Nu zullen uw longen ook helemaal vol zijn, en het zal heel moeilijk worden om er nog wat lucht in te krijgen. Probeer geen lucht te laten ontsnappen. Als je stap 3 en 4 zoveel mogelijk herhaald hebt, zal je waarschijnlijk wel een beetje lucht hebben laten ontsnappen, zodat je toch nog een laatste maal kan slikken. Als het moeilijk is om de lucht niet via je neus te laten ontsnappen, knijp je neus van bij het begin dicht met je vingers.

6. Adem uit.

Dude this is amazing! Worked right away! I've had these hiccups for a day and a half and by doing this easy process, they're gone in a wink! Thanks for this!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow! This is amazing. Helped me immediately, when NOTHING else has!

Thank you so much!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I didn't want to go to bed hiccupping so I was up til all hours, searching on the internet for a cure--until I found yours. Couldn't believe it; I kept waiting for the next hiccup that never happened. Thank you so much!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
good stiff. helped
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THIS WORKS! I had the hiccups for 24 hours and tried everything, unsuccessfully.

I am thrilled.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I came across this remedy years ago. It has NEVER failed! It is amazing, but it works every time!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ad I'm typin iv stopped hiccups after hr of hiccups brilliant 😄
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THANK YOU SO MUCH THIS LITERALLY WORKED BECAUSE I NEEDED IT BECAUSE I WAS IN A CLASS WITH MY BESTIE AND SHE WAS LAUGHING AT ME AND I REALLY NEEDED TO WEE SO I NEEDED TO STOP SO SHE'LL STOP LAUGHING AT ME. THANK YOU AGAIN. I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH XOXOXO
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It worked instantly for me. Very good add on to the original breath holding. Its very awkward and challenging to try to swallow while holding your breath! Fun in a weird way! Or maybe I'm just a solo weirdo. But it worked!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You should seriously post this on a website of it's own. THE CURE FOR THOSE GODDAMN FUCKING HICCUPS.COM

I was going crazy and it actually was causing bad chest pains....fuck...finally some relief.

THANK YOU!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It really works! I was doing my math homework, when I couldn't stop hiccuping. I tried everything. Holding my breath (and almost passing out) and drinking water, and I looked up ways, AND NOTHING WORKED!!! I was halfway through it when I realized they were gone. This is probably the only way I will use from now on.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you thank you thank you, from the bottom of my ....diaphragm! My hiccups were terrible, angering me and I have to work tonight and I support myself and I was seriously getting stopped from working by my horrific hiccups...I tried my usual 'hold nose sip water until can't breathe' which is supposed to work by tricking the body into thinking it's drowning and then it stops hiccuping & breathes normally to 'save itself' instead...but for some strange reason no dice on that one tonight...so I googled cures in sheer desperation and wow I cannot believe this worked the first time out! Thanks a whole bunch I will try to donate something to Paypal for you. You are a genius AND a humanitarian for putting this out there you DO deserve a Nobel Prize seriously!

[Thanks for the kind words and also for the donation!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Omg it worked and after I'd been hiccuping for three hours straight
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've donated and done this for years... it's always worked.... BUT.. For some strange reason the technique has lost its power. Maybe I'm micromanaging it, but I when I feel like I do step 1 properly, I can't actually do step 2 or even fake pretend... I don't know.. Going crazy over here.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SO... just submitted a testimonial 5 minutes ago in distress as I had been trying for 30 minutes to get rid of my hiccups using this cure that has worked so many times. Tried it sitting, tried it standing, tried it after drinking water, tried it laying down....... I couldn't get it work.

As soon as I submitted the testimonial, I gave it another crack. It worked. Maybe I just needed to vent.

I wish I could tell you the difference between when it worked and when it didn't but I can't. Perhaps it has something to do with relaxing your stomach/abs/chest enough to get the max amount of air in there or being calm enough to execute the method. Maybe not perfect, but its still the only thing that has ever worked when I have the hiccups.

Anyway, THANKS again. Much appreciated.

[Hard to say why it failed when it usually works for you but I'm glad to hear that it worked after trying again. Thanks for writing and donating!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This needs to be in the news!!!! I had the hiccups for like 45 mins straight and I tried everything I could think of but nothing worked..... Until I tried this. Immediately after trying this they went away. Thank you so much
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow thanks a lot! :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I can't believe it, i want to cry. For years i would get hiccups & start squeaking. Most times i would be out & have to go home & ride it out. Nothing worked. I had to repeat a few times now to get it. Hallelujah.

[Glad to hear it worked for you. Thanks so much for your donation!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Works the best I mean it I'm 13 years old I was hiccupping for 1 hour and this did the trick thanks!! :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow. It worked in 20secs and I'm waiting but no hiccup yet. Since yesterday I have been having constant hiccups every 10seconds or so and I tired holding my breath and forcing water but with no result. Thank you for this method.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Very simple and fast method! It does not even take 30seconds to complete! Highly reliable and recommended!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had had hiccups for 4 hours, my normal method for getting rid of them didn't work. Found this and they'd gone in about 20 seconds !!!!!!!!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OMG that worked a treat. I've had hiccups for 5 hours today and they are now cured, thanks. I wish a had some money to donate, but I scincerely don't.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow, this trick really, truly, actually did work. I was skeptical but my hiccups are gone after 30 seconds of breathing in fully, swallowing, sipping in some more air, then rinsing and repeating. Amazing. I'm going to ask my medical school professors why this works!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Holy cow - it worked! I have had hiccups for 4 hours all the while trying everything I could find online. Thank you! I definitely believe that you are more than qualified to play a doctor on television!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SERIOUSLY AMAZING. Thankfully I don't get hiccups often, as when I do I get them bad and they last for hours. I'm not joking when I say that today being 20th Dec 2015, I went to sleep hiccuping and awoke 3 hours later still hiccuping!!! 20 seconds after reading this page (if that) using this method the hiccups are gone. Hopefully it'll prove as effective every time. Thank you to the originator!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IT WORKS!! thanks man!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!! I rarely have hiccups, but yesterday night was a nightmare, hiccups wouldn't stop for 6 hours and I could not sleep. This simple trick did it!

[Glad it worked for you! Thanks for writing and also thank you for the donation!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just found this cure online and tried it. Worked immediately. Thank you!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOLY SHIT THIS WORKS THANK YOU SO MUCH HAVE ALL THE LUCK THIS NEW YEAR :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you! Instant relief after one go at it! I can't believe it, the only cure that I can tell works. You deserve a Nobel prize in medicine, really. Hiccups can be a lot worse than they sound or than people realize. I hope everyone who suffers chronic or severe hiccups stumbles upon your page. Thank you again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was suffering from hiccups for 90 minutes, and doing everything that had worked before from holding my breath to drinking ice water, and nothing worked.

Just your first step of breathing in deeply thru my mouth cured them.

Thank you!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yayyyy!!! It worked
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was a victim of hiccups for about 4 hours. They started during a movie in which I drank too much soda much too quickly. Totally regretted it, especially after trying at least a dozen cures to get rid of it. I finally stumbled upon this remedy after much frustration. And it works! I only had to do it once and did exactly what the instructions said. They are completely gone and I couldn't be happier. Thanks!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ive had violent hiccups for 2 days now. I just found your remedy, tried it and they stopped instantly!!! Thank you God!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow, this was awesome! I was just suffering a case of really violent hiccups - and I can't even remember the last time I had a bout of them. They were causing me some pretty serious discomfort and getting more frequent. This method worked the first time I tried it. I had tried a couple other breath-holding methods that did not work. Thank you so much!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Absolutely inredible. Even faster than thirty seconds. It was magic!! Thank you sooooo much! I'm pregnant and have terrible morning sickness and hiccups always make me feel sick too. This method really worked!! No BS!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Worked for my son. Thanks so much. He is 8 years old only.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have been on cotisone and have been hicupping yesturday and today. This happens everytime I have to take it. It has been exhausting. Praise the Lord, I tried this method and they have stopped. Thank, you so much.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ja nisam milan stevic ko vas jebe hiccups are gone which is a good thing im about to commit suicide
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It worked! I'm Amazed. I have a similar technice that i use that i invented my self. As the hiccup comes i breate in to my lungs. when I do this the hiccup ends up been breathed in instead of making a noise in the throat. THis usually kills the hiccup. Not this time. This trick did the trick! Thank You!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Its midnight on a Thursday and my Dad had the hiccups for over 3 hours. We tried literally everything and searched online for tips. Nothing worked. I came across this site while searching for techniques to sleep with the hiccups (we had given up on curing them). After about 3 tries his hiccups are gone and we can all get some sleep. The only difficult part is really controlling your breathing and making sure not to exhale. This is an excellent method and I am very very grateful.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just googled hiccup cure because I am working on something important and the hiccups were distracting. It actually works! I keep waiting for another one, but other than a burp, no hiccups. Thank you for sharing this. How awesome.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
it works 100%
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It worked on really bad hiccups! Thanks!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Holy shit... it actually works, no bullshit, I was skeptical... it completely works. I guarantee it. that is all
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Normally 10 fast sips of water cures my hiccups but this time they were out of control for over an hour, I was hiccuping huge amounts of air. I googled air hiccups and saw this and sure enough on my first attempt they were gone. I love whoever posted this!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OMG! I have been doing this for years. The very same cure. Works almost the first round, every time. I'm trying to teach my son who has chronic hiccups. I have to take him for kidney tests etc
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It worked. I still can't believe it. I think you should reach out to the main news paper of all the countries and share your solution. It is really useful to many people.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Holy shit... it actually works, no bullshit, I was skeptical... it completely works. I guarantee it. that is all
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
this actuallt worked immediately for me on hiccups that were very annoying!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ive had them for more than 2 days now this isnt working im doing the steps right and doing it many times morre thasn 30 seconds i still have the fucking hiccups. Ya know earlier i got into a terrible car crash my car was totaled all the airbags came out and that stopped my hiccups for maybe 30 min utes then back they come if they dont stop soon im going to die omg
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks, worked like a charm, had the hiccups for about 12 hours, tried every tactic out there until I stumbled on your site. You are the man/woman

Amazingly, this worked! I'm a Mental Health Clinician, Master Hypnotherapist & EFT Practitioner. This will be tested to see if results are repeatedly reproduced, however I must say I'm impressed with round #1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OH MY GOD! I'm 34 years old and I frequently get hiccups and have all my life, I have tried literally everything....I'm stuck on bed rest with an injury...I'm also home alone so getting up to get water or anything is close to impossible, I googled ways to get rid of hiccups while being immobilized and this article was the first one I read...I was skeptical as hell!!! It worked immediately!!!!!!! Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Works like a charm, every time.

[Glad to hear that, and thanks so much for the donation!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Second time this has worked.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whoever found this is a mad genius. I suffered for 10 minutes and it got fixed in 20 seconds.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
worked!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thx
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have had hiccups throughout my life that are always almost impossible to get rid of. I was literally freaking out because my hiccups just wouldn't go away and i found this under google search and now it's completely gone. Super support this method and happy to see that such reasonable website responses have gotten such a high standing in google's regards. Thanks very much
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow. I have never found a cure that works so immediately. THANK YOU!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's an easier, surefire method. Inhale, hold your breath. Fill your mouth with water. Using your thumbs and forefingers, plug your nose and ears from both sides. Swallow the water in six small swallows. Once the water is down, slowly let out your breath. Unplug your nose and ears. Viola. An art teacher in high school taught me this in 1985, and those I have shared it with have been amazed that it actually works. Takes seconds and you don't risk passing out.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi all, I was suffering for Hiccup for last two days, I tried almost everything possible and failed but finally this trick worked, it actually worked.

Thank you Zorro
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
my husband had horrible hiccups and tried everything...plastic bag...water..you name it so I did a search and found your 30 second cure! Wow this works! His hiccups were gone in 30 seconds! Thank you soooooo much!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
holy shit it worked
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THEY'RE GONEEEEEEEEEE!! I'M SO HAPPY
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every time I use this site to cure my hiccups, I donate. Over the past several years, I have returned here 4 or 5 times. And every time the cure has saved me from days of hiccups. I get horrible, painful hiccups that in the past I had to take sedating medication to fix. Now I simply re-read the instructions here, follow them explicitly, and sigh in relief once they pass.... Which is literally within 30 seconds to one minute. It's an incredible relief. Thanks again Cognitial, I hope my small donation helps to keep this site up and running, because I truly believe this is a public service.

[I'm so glad to hear that it continues to work well for you! Any kind of donation helps and is much appreciated!]

I only needed to do the inhale and swallow method twice out of the three reccomended for it to work immediately. Had been suffering from aggressive hiccups for 20 minutes due to drinking a cayenne pepper herbal tea too quickly. Thanks you guys!!!!! -25yr old male-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok.... here is what a hiccup is: a muscle twitch a.k.a spasm, just like a twitchy eye muscle (orbicularis). Twitches/spasms happen usually because of excessive strain on that muscle. When people over-eat, the diaphragm (muscle causing the hiccups), is being stressed because the stomach has expanded too big, impeading the diaphragm, causing strain. Also... things like playing an musical instrument, that takes air, without a proper warm-up can cause fatigue in other muscles, because causing the diaphragm to have to take up the slack for the for the other fatigued muscles, and then the diaphragm isn't used to that much activity.

1.) Prevention is your best ally (How to breath): Try to depend on your diaphragm more often than your chest. With that, your abdominal should move outward first, and then if you need more, expand the chest. You'll find a much deeper breath that way. Breathing exercises, using the above method of breathing (with the diaphragm - muscle causing hiccups). =) approx 8 second slow inhale to full capacity, and then 8 second full exhale (after slowly venting air, then pushing primarily via diaphragm to expelled all the air you possibly can). That should get a full range of motion for the diaphragm, making it less likely to be fatigued. Yoga is apparently good for learning to breath properly Your diet is probably not as good as you think it is, and I guarantee its not due to GMOs.

2.) How to take control back, of those muscles, when they're on the fritz. So a spasming muscle is just muscle receiving electrical impulses from somewhere, maybe your brain, maybe there's cross-talk in the metaphorical wires. Take the command back, of those neurons by exercising control of the problem muscle.



p.s. I'm not a doctor of any sort either, but I did pay attention in school. A former trumpet player, a runner, electronics technician, and a hacker of systems

I tried this method thinking it won't work cuz all the methods I previously tried had failed, this method took away my hickup in less than 30 seconds. Nice and simple method.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Everytime I get the hiccups I come to your page to relearn the cure. And every time it works. I promised myself I'd donate every time you cured me even if it was only a dollar. You've earned it, and keeping this site up is imperative. I do wish you'd redesign the site so that it's easier to navigate, especially testimonials, because I'd love to go back and read so my old ones. Haha, very narcissistic of me I know!

Anyway, thanks again. Your method has saved me so many times that I've lost count.

Sincerely Jennifer B. (Jenna)

[Thank you for another donation and testimonial! At some time I would like to redesign it myself. Navigating the comments is indeed cumbersome and managing them has also gotten more difficult for me the more I get. Not that I am complaining! I read and appreciate every one of them. Thanks again!]

THANK YOU! I had the most violent hiccups and I followed your method, not even very well to be honest as I couldnt fit any more air in after the 2nd inhale. It WORKED immediately! THANK YOU for sharing this with the world. You should get a Nobel Peace Prize or something. Bless you!

[I'm happy to hear it worked for you and thank you very much for the donation!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Works! I get hiccups for 24-48hrs. Nothing seems to work, i have used this link before and was verry happy to find it agagain. Thank you for sharing/posting this.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you, thank you, thank you! This really works. I had been hiccuping for nearly 48 hours when I found this site. I had tried all the usual home remedies for hiccups. Sugar, vinegar, paper bag, drinking water upside down, took a Xanax, etc . None of them worked. After trying this, which took all of 30 seconds, my hiccups were gone! I will finally get a good nights sleep tonight. The creators of the website require no payment but do accept voluntary donations. I was so excited to get rid of those stinking hiccups I donated a few bucks. Best money I've ever spent. Thanks again! Scott in Nashville

[Thank you very much for sharing your experience. I'm glad to hear that it worked for you! Thank you also for the donation!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Googled, found this, worked first time (3 swallows, about 20 seconds). So 1 out of 1 so far! Tip: To check if my hiccups have gone, I always cough. You will immediately hiccup after coughing if they haven't really gone yet.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Holy S#%T!!!!! I am thoroughly impressed with this technique! WELL DONE!! I have two broken and separated ribs, turns out that hiccups suck way worse like this, you just made my day! Thank you!!!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had a similar technique, but for me only inhaling and holding it seemed to work. Till one day it didnt and i got so bothered. Tried ur shit and works perfectly tyyyy
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
i was taking xanax and drinking heavy a good way to get hiccups. i really didnt think this wa s going to work but now i can pretend to be sober much much easier ;)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks a lot. Great help.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll never suffer the chronic, hunger-induced hiccups that plagued my homeschooled-student life again. I THANK YOU KINDLY, GOOD SIR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have tried many treatments for the occasional hiccup, and some did work (drinking lots of water, etc...), but recently I am having intestine gas problems (rarely being able to pass gas) and constipation issues. I couldn't use any type of laxative, so my doctor prescribed me Lactulose, and apparently not as harsh with the gas & bloating. Back to the topic in hand, I was getting hiccups after I get up from bed and when lying down in bed - particularly when switching side of sleeping. I then tried this 6-step process you posted, and it has always worked, except for the odd time where I had to doing steps 3-4 a few times. But this really does work on me. Thank you so much!!! Not sure if you know this, but is there a medical treatment to get rid of this permanently? I'm in Canada.

Thanks again.

[Glad to hear this is helping you. Regarding a permanent treatment, I suppose that depends on what exactly is causing your hiccups. They can have many different causes. Depending on what specifically the cause is, there may be something a doctor can do to stop them.
