The Ultimate Cure for Hiccups

Everyone thinks they know the best way to cure hiccups - so-called “sure-fire solutions” like chugging a big glass of water or holding your breath for as long as you can or standing on your head while doing both of those things. But now there’s a much easier solution. Kidzworld has found a new cure that works, but only if you’re able to catch those nasty hiccups early. Check it out!

The Ear-Rubbing Method

In order for the ear-rubbing method to work, it’s important that you notice your hiccups as soon as they begin. You can’t let them get out of hand. Any more than 1-3 hiccups and it may be too late.

Here’s How it Works

Place your thumbs behind your earlobes and place the inside edge of your index fingers on top of your earlobes (see the image above). In that position, rub the entire earlobe from top to bottom for 20 seconds or more. Concentrate on the motion and soon the hiccups will be forgotten.

The Ultimate Cure

Does it seem too good to be true? Well, it’s not! By some strange miracle, the ear-rubbing method actually works! No more bloating yourself with big glasses of water, downing spoonfuls of sugar, or drinking pickle juice (yuck!). This is the easiest method to rid yourself of hiccups, and you can do it anywhere, any time. Next time you or your friends have the hiccups, give it try!

I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
