Health Remedies - Hiccups (Hiccough)

Product Categories

Hiccups occur when a spasm contracts the diaphragm, a large sheet of muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity. This spasm causes an intake of breath that is suddenly stopped by the closure of the vocal cords. This closure causes the characteristic "hiccup" sound. It usually stop within a few minutes to a few hours.

The most common trigger for hiccups is swallowing air, usually from eating too fast. Some people hiccup in response to alcohol or spicy foods and drinks, and also due to stress and excitement. Persistent chronic hiccups lasting longer than 48 hours may be a sign of disease conditions such as lung tumors, pneumonia, gastroesophageal reflux, heart attack, stroke etc. and hence requires immediate medical advice.
