Jennifer: How To Cure the Hiccups.

In Health on 06/22/2012 at 6:14 pm

Jennifer Wong and I were best friends through elementary school. Once we hit 7th grade, we had to go to different schools, and since the internet didn’t exist at that time, we didn’t stay in touch. I don’t know where she is now, but I do remember this trick she taught me about how to cure the hiccups:

1. BREATHE OUT. Exhale all the way and hold your breath until you think you’re going to pass out.

2. HOLD IT. Keep holding your breath and then exhale with three short puffs. Hold your breath again until you think you’re really going to pass out.

3. BREATHE IN. Right as you’re about to die, inhale all the way and hold your breath until you think you’re going to pass out.

4. HOLD IT AGAIN. Keep holding your breath and then inhale with three short puffs. Hold your breath again until you think you’re really going to pass out.

5. RELAX. Relax and just start breathing normally.

It works. Try it!

*It’s okay if you hiccup while holding your breath. Just don’t stop holding your breath so you can hiccup. That kind of defeats the purpose.
