As hiccups are annoying and sometimes embarrassing, they sink on their own in some time. If you experience hiccups frequently, the interference that they cause can be uncomforting. How to get rid of hiccups in 60 seconds.
why do you get hiccups?
Hiccups are caused by sudden contraction of diaphragm and are involuntary. When the diaphragm repeatedly contracts, the vocal cords shut quickly and air flow has prevented, thus creating ‘hic’ sound. Hiccups may occur individually or in bouts and time between each hiccup is almost steady.
How to get rid of them quickly?
There are many home remedies that stop hiccups, but one that works best is holding your breath. All you need to do is take the deep breath and hold it for few seconds and let it out slowly. Repeat this 2 or 3 times if your hiccups do not fall down in one go. When you hold your breath, the air in your lungs helps push the diaphragm down, helping it expand and hence relieve you from the hiccups.
