I found this the other day when I had the hiccups a few different days in a row. Posting it here because it worked amazing and I do not ever want to forget this technique.
Today I share with you his ancient secret.
- Fill your lungs with your mouth. Very important you use the mouth.
- Swallow TWICE in a row. If you have difficulty doing this generate saliva in your mouth, it’ll help you get the second swallow easier.
- Exhale SLOWLY through your nostrils.
Hiccups are your diaphragm spasming out of your normal inhale-exhale cycle. It can usually be fixed within a few breathes by mindfully focusing on my breathing and taking slower, fuller, deeper breathes to force your diaphragm back into sync.
