Sipping water slowly is an old remedy for hiccoughs. Tea made of the dill plant given in teaspoon doses is also said to be good. Often a few mint leaves well chewed will stop hiccoughs. Caraway tea is also said to be beneficial. Pineapple juice is also helpful. Cases of hiccoughs have been helped with water-melon seeds (tea) after all other remedies failed.
Pressure for two or three minutes on each side of the neck about one inch below the ears has been found helpful.
