New Hiccup Cure - Try It and See If It Works For You

Surfing around the web can lead you to some interesting places. I found this new cure for hiccups. It's not earth shattering science like a cure for cancer, but we are all affected by hiccups. Which, by the way is a spasm of the diaphragm that is suddenly interrupted by the closure of the vocal cords.

Basically, you stretch your abs pushing up on the the top of a door frame, while holding your breath. You should feel an arch to your back and your abdomen stretching. Take a nice deep breath before performing this maneuver since you will need to hold the position for about 30 to 60 seconds. See the photo of the move (love that he included a visual aid).

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I haven't had the hiccups since I read to test this guy's method. So file it away in your memory bank to try the next time you are afflicted with hiccups.
