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.
Hiccoughs are spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm caused by gas in the stomach. Calamus and peppermint are excellent to remove gas from the stomach.
