HICCUPS Solution

HICCUPS Solution

  • Treatment that focus on adjusting the level of carbon dioxide include holding one’s breath, breathing into a paper bag, drinking a glass of water rapidly and pulling the tongue forward with the fingers.
  • If you want a more novel approach, try eating one teaspoonful of dry sugar or gently inhaling a little pepper –enough to make you sneeze. Sneezing usually adjusts the spastic contractions of the diaphragm.
