Hi There, Fellow Gardeners!
This is AnnahMarie.
Let’s face it- hiccups are almost as bad as mosquito bites, and can come at the worst of times. We are here to show how to kick this nuisance to the curb, with a bit on how we get the hiccups in the first place.
How we get hiccups-
When air rushes in and hits your voice box, your vocal cords close abruptly in panic and you’re left with an agitating hiccup. Some things that annoy the diaphragm are – eating too quickly or too much, an irritation in the stomach or the throat, or feeling nervous/excited.
In order to accomplish this task efficiently, drink a full glass of water through a straw, while plugging your ears. It seems comical, but this method may just help ease the hiccups.
Eat something sweet or sour-
Consuming something like a banana, granny smith apple, or honey can suppress and even eliminate hiccups.
**Tip from Becca of Organic Gurlz Gardens – Another ‘sweet’ technique is to place some coconut sugar underneath the tongue and let it saturate. Don’t put 3 tablespoons in there, just a modest pinch will do. **
Gargle salt water-
No need to hop in the ocean for this one!
Supplement a teaspoon of kosher salt into 8 oz. of water and stir until the salt almost dissolves. Then, gargle the solution like you would mouthwash.
Pull out your tongue-
This may not be appropriate in the most formal setting, but pulling out your tongue may stimulate your nerves and calm down your hiccups.
Keep these tips in mind when battling against those annoying hiccups!
Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
