|Stopping hiccups requires|
Hiccups might not be as big in the news as Ebola these days, but it still is a problem that everyone has to face at least once a month. Everyone has their own special remedy on how to cure hiccups from putting your head in a pregnant woman’s vagina to chugging goat urine. The weirder the method the more likely people are to believe it works. Well I can tell you those two methods don’t work. Here are the top 3 weirdest ways you can really cure the hiccups:
3. Breathe in as much air as you can and hold your breath for as long as possible.
It might look weird to breathe in deep and hold your breath with your cheeks all puffed out but this really does work. Hiccups are basically a spasm of the diaphragm so when you hold your breath and stop breathing it stops the spasms. Simply holding your breath won’t stop you from hiccuping which is why you need to breathe in as much air as possible so the pressure prevents the hiccups. Hold this for as long as you can and by the time you have to inhale the hiccups will likely be gone.
2. Pinch your nipples and scream at the top of your lungs.
This is one method you really want to do in private if possible. It’s potentially a way to get fired from your job. It’s also not the most comforting, but it is a nice stress reliever. You take each nipple in your thumb and forefinger and squeeze the dickens out of them while shrieking like a banshee. The screaming part actually comes quite naturally. The force of the air out of your lungs along with the shock of your nipples being in pain is usually enough to eliminate the hiccups.
And the number one weirdest way to cure the hiccups is…
1. Crap your pants
Speaking of things you don’t want to do at work, crapping your pants is one of them. Sure crapping your pants is an awful thing most people don’t want to do, but when was the last time you crapped your pants with the hiccups? Obviously your body can only do one of these at a time. I don’t know if it has to do with the physiology of defecation or just the sheer embarrassment and shock of messing yourself in public that keeps the hiccups to a minimum. Point is, it’s true until someone can prove it wrong.
