Myths to stop hiccups
When we experience a sudden outburst of hiccups, we immediate recall health myths from our childhood days. Which of the following have you tried to so to stop hiccups?
1. Request someone else to ask: “Have you eaten?”
You will then need to answer: “Yes I’ve eaten”.
2. Drink seven sips of water continuously
Why not, five, six, eight or nine sips though?
3. Ask someone to frighten us
Rumor has it that being in shock can put an end to hiccups
4. Count from 100 to 0
What difference does it make if we were to start counting from 0?
5. Allow your imagination to run wild
Distract yourself from the fact that you’re experiencing hiccups
According to Chinese Medicine theories, hiccups are a result of singultation, which refers to a spasm between the breathing muscles such as diaphragm and the intercostal muscles. Such condition occurs when we gobble food too rapidly or when we are already bloated; consume very hot or cold food and beverages, and cause a drastic change in the temperature.
It could also be due to the deficiency of the qi, which leads to the adverse rising of stomach qi. We can massage the ‘tian tu’ acupoint to relieve the situation, on top of the usual remedies – drinking water and holding our breath. If hiccups persist for more than 24 hours, do consult medical advice to diagnose the cause.
