Hi, my name is Doctor Kim Makoi. I’m a holistic
chiropractor in San Francisco, and this is how you get rid of hiccups in ten seconds.
Hiccups, while still a bit of a medical mystery, it’s been agreed upon, fairly agreed upon
now, that it’s usually caused from swallowing too much air, or swallowing air quickly, either
by eating too fast or drinking too fast, or being in a nervous state where somebody might
be breathing a little faster than normal. So, the fastest way to get rid of hiccups
is to just stop, slow down your breathing, and, take a nice, deep breath in. Hold the
breath for about ten seconds. While you’re holding your breath, maybe, close your eyes
or try to center yourself and calm down the system. And, for most of you out there, that’ll
do it, and that’ll end the hiccups. And that’s basically how you get rid of hiccups in ten
seconds. There’s lots of strange variations on how to stop the hiccups, varying from standing
in different positions, and drinking beverages from different angles from the glass. Basically,
all of these things are aimed to do the same thing, which is to get the mind distracted
and focused on one single thing, and to try to get the body to slow down, basically. So,
if you just remember that your goal is to get the body to calm down, get the air back
into the lungs and out of the gut, then, you’ll be good.
