Sugar for Hiccups
Hiccups are really annoying and you probably try things like holding your breath to get rid of them. Believe it or not, one of the most effective ways to get rid of hiccups is to swallow some plain sugar. You want the sugar to be dry and you only need a teaspoon of it. It should be actual sugar and not a sugar substitute to get the best effect. Experts think that sugar helps to change the nerve muscles that are responsible for spasming and causing hiccups so that they go away.
