Let’s talk about how to get rid of hiccups fast. A hiccup happens when the diaphragm goes into spasm and interrupts the vocal cords.

Hiccup triggers:

• Laughing

• Excessive talking

• Eating too fast

• Stress

Basically, hiccups are caused by having too much oxygen and not enough CO2. When people have too little CO2, their pH becomes too alkaline. A symptom of alkalosis is hiccups. According to a study done on cats, hiccups stop when you increase CO2.

The best way to get rid of hiccups is to increase CO2 by doing any of these things:

• Hold your breath

• Drink water upside down

• Breath into a paper bag

• Breath through your nose slowly (5 sec. in 5 sec. out)
