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!
