Think of a Turtle on Its Back
Simple. Easy. Props-free. This cure can be performed anywhere. Just think of a turtle on its back!
Hiccup on Command
Since you have the hiccups already, try making yourself hiccup. Come on, if you’ve got the hiccups, you should be able to hiccup any time, right? Take a minute and concentrate on trying to make yourself hiccup. After you’ve tried hiccuping on command, your hiccups should be gone!
Watch Your Finger Only with Your Eyes
Point at yourself with one of your index fingers. Hold your hand right in front of your face. Watch the finger only with your eyes. Then slowly move your finger around in a random pattern for around 30 seconds. Near the end of the 30 seconds, slowly back your finger away.
Breathe in as much air as possible and hold it. Swallow. Breathe in more air. Swallow again. It may seem like you can’t breathe any more in, but try breathing in one more time as much air as possible. Swallow again. Then let out your breath slowly.
Drink a Warm Glass of Water
Fill a glass with warm water. The idea is to apply heat to the diaphragm, so the water should be rather warm (but not hot enough to burn you). Slowly drink the entire glass of warm water.
Swallow a Spoonful of Peanut Butter
This one’s pretty self explanatory. Just swallow a good sized spoonful of peanut butter. You can also try sugar if peanut butter doesn’t work. (Obvious word of caution: Don’t swallow so much peanut butter you can’t breathe, and don’t swallow a spoonful of sugar if you’re diabetic)
Drink a Glass of Water while Plugging Your Ears and Nose
Plug your ears and your nose at the same time, then drink a glass of water through a straw. If you don’t have a straw, then you can have a friend hold the glass to your mouth while you drink it.
