There are plenty of old wives tales about curing hiccups by drinking water from the wrong side of a glass, which is of course impossible, but did you know that there are actually lots of natural cures for the hiccups that have been used for generations?
Here are the most effective natural cures for the hiccups that will have you breathing properly in no time.
1. Drink dissolved cardamom powder
A beverage made of cardamom powder definitely doesn’t sound appealing, but it could be just the thing you need to stop your hiccups. By mixing a teaspoon of cardamom powder with a cup and a half of boiled water, you can create a drink that encourages your diaphragm muscles to relax. Don’t drink the liquid hot 0 instead, wait for it to cool and then strain out the remaining cardamom.
It certainly won’t be the most pleasant thing you’ve ever drank, but it may just do the trick if you’ve been suffering with hiccups for an irritatingly long period of time.
