These are the top five best hiccup cures. They ABSOLUTELY STOP HICCUPS.Hiccups usually go away by themselves. But it’s good to have some cures and remedies in mind in case they don’t. Occasionally, like the well-publicized case of Jennifer Mee’s hiccups, they last much longer than usual.
So, here is a list of the Top ten best cures and remedies for hiccups.
PLEASE NOTICE: Caution should be used in attempting any of these particular effective home remedies for hiccups, due to the fact that when directions are followed correctly, they are likely to result in serious injury or a temporary loss of life which may become more permanent.
1) The Titanic Method: Drinking Water to cure hiccups.
Standing up, bend forward until you can touch your knees with your chin, and then, stretching your neck back so that your head is turned up as high as it will go, drink from a glass of water, while standing at the bottom of a swimming pool. Don’t stop drinking or swim back up to the surface until the glass is totally empty.
2) The Spoon Full of Honey Hiccup Cure.

Pour honey onto a spoon, filling the spoon completely full. Then swallow the spoon full of honey. You may have a gag reflex at first as you attempt to swallow the spoon. This is normal and not of itself indicative of any serious physical abnormalities or illness. It is recommended that this only be attempted at an emergency room, preferably one that is open.
3) The Habanero Pepper Lemon Ice Cream Hiccup Cure.
With this approach, simply pour the juice of 10 Habanero peppers onto a bowl of very hard, cold ice cream (jalapenos can be used as a substitute, but as they are much more mild the juice of 20 would be required). Then add 5 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of garlic juice. A touch of parsley may be added for a taste. With a fork, pick up the entire slab of frozen ice cream, onto which the juices have now frozen, and put the entire frozen slab into your mouth. Keep mouth closed, breathing through the nose as long as breathing continues. There are no recorded cases of anyone still having the hiccups after using this method.
4) The Breathing Rhythm Method Cure for the Hiccups.
This is an oldie but a goodie. Some ancient Greek texts recommend this remedy for both hiccups and the fear of being injured by unexpected falling leaves, a rare condition a small percentage of the human population has always had to endure.
This method is very simple and requires only that you breathe in and out exactly as instructed. A “coach” or “facilitator” may be solicited to ensure completion of this method, to help compensate for personal resistance which may occur. 1) Instruct the facilitator in advance to make sure you follow the directions. 2) Take in a deep, deep, deep breath of air, expanding the diaphragm to the fullest extent of the law of physics. 3) hold it. 4) slowly exhale.
These are the only steps to this method. The difficulty comes because of a natural and understandable urge to then breathe in again at some point shortly after steps 1-4. However, this greatly increases the chances of the hiccups continuing, so if the sole goal is to stop the hiccups, this must not be allowed to occur. There are various creative ways the facilitator can assist you in succeeding with this method. It is strongly recommended that you search for a breathing rhythm method facilitator who is not simply in it for the money or to assist you, but who fully enjoys their work.
5) The Distraction Method for Curing Hiccups.
It has long been known that hiccups often go away simply by being distracted. However, in more severe cases, more severe distraction may be called for.
For this particular approach, find a swimsuit, a blindfold, a local exotic pet delivery service, as well as the tallest unfinished construction project in your area. Go to the construction site late between the hours of 1 to 3 am, when you are least likely to disturb workers. It is a little known fact that most construction area gate padlocks, while appearing locked, are usually in fact unlocked to accommodate early arriving employees and deliveries in the morning. It is another little known fact that as an inside joke known and understood only by construction companies, the elevator codes for sky scraper construction projects is nearly always 5871. The large box of tarantulas and assorted smaller spiders may be placed on the elevator, next to the bagged snakes but away from the box of a dozen rats and mice, as the venom could kill the mammals. Tarantulas due usually stay away from skunks but it should be kept separate at this point as well. When you arrive at the highest level in which there are free narrow steel beams, you can begin the final preparatory stages of the distraction method to stop hiccups. First, carry the bag of snakes out to the far edge of the steel beam. Be careful as they will be shifting and moving, making balance difficult so far up above the hard and unforgiving cement streets below. Let the snakes out of the bag, and walk back to the elevator, quickly so that you don’t lose your nerve. Then carry the skunk, mice, and rats still in their boxes, back onto the steel beam, about 5 feet from where the snakes are slithering towards you. You can stack the three boxes to save time, if you can see either above them or around the side. Then run back for the box of assorted spiders. Leave this box about 10 feed from where you left the snakes, and about five feet from the rodents. Standing towards the middle of the beam, go ahead and tip the box of spiders on its side towards you. Then move a few feet to the middle, and sit down, with the skunk snake-side and the rats and mice spider-side.
Sitting as comfortably as possible in a swimsuit on a hard steel beam with your legs dangling a few thousand feet above the ground, put on the blindfold.
Reach over and tip the remaining boxes on their side, facing towards you. Open the lids (if you leave them right side up and open the lids, the skunk, mice and rats are likely to hop out, to find themselves in an unpleasant free fall culminating in unexpected surprises for passersby far below).
Now, while rubbing your stomach circularly in one direction, and your head in the opposite direction, count down from 1000, in multiples of threes, all the way down to 0. Then go to -1000 and back to 0 again. Whatever you might feel crawling over your skin, DON’T remove the blindfold. Also remember that spiders can be very, very slippery. If you lose your concentration and forget what number you are on, simply begin again. You will not be thinking very much about your hiccups at this point, and this can help them to cease. When you are finished counting, remove the blindfold and use it similar to a bull fighter’s cape to urge the remaining pets back into their respective boxes. When finished, hop up and carry all of the boxes back into the elevator.
If hiccups are still present, repeat. After the third time, discontinue method and consult a physician immediately.
