Hiccup is not a serious health problem, but it can be very disturbing if it persists. Hiccups may install when we eat too fast or taking a big sip of hot liquid.
It’s not well-known its cause, but you can get rid of it with some tricks known from our grandparents.
To prevent hiccups, it is advised to eat slowly, not to swallow large pieces of food, and try as long as possible not to eat nervous or stressed.
Here are some natural ways to get rid of hiccups:
1. You can get rid of hiccups by increasing the amount of carbon dioxide, and this means to hold your breath for a few seconds or breathing in a paper bag several times.
2. Mint that has antispasmodic and relaxing effects on the digestive tract may be helpful in such cases. A cup of mint tea consumed after a hearty meal can fix the problem.
