One Additional Treatment for Hiccups

December 20, 2022 · 5:50 AM

I’ve written beforehand about how Paul Ingraham helped treatment my patello-femoral ache syndrome.

Additional currently, Paul appeared into hiccup cures because of his father had an intractable case. What lastly labored for dad? Respiratory proper right into a plastic bag.

Boosting blood CO2 (hypercapnia) by inhaling a PLASTIC bag. This one is type of plausible and is easy and guarded to try. Hypercapnia positively impacts some types of hiccups. The story (from a smart provide, an excellent “good good friend of PainSci”): “There’s a wonderful easier means out of hiccups — at zero worth. Realized it from my uncle, who studied medicine in Brazil throughout the 50s. Anesthetized victims with hiccups have been in ache, in order that they needed to dispose of it ASAP. Method: breathe in a PLASTIC bag, small enough so that you could get hypercapnia (get higher blood ranges of CO2). It is necessary to take care of the bag REALLY tight spherical your nostril and mouth to forestall air from escaping, and if in case you could have hassle with dizziness, it’s advisable to sit down for it. As rapidly as a result of it’s going to get uncomfortable, largely after 4-6 breaths, you’ll stop, the hiccup is likely to be gone. I have no idea what this does to the phrenic nerve, nonetheless it really works 100%.”

Safety Notes: Clearly there is likely to be some hazard with this method. If he’d had low O2 or was struggling for breath, we likely wouldn’t have dared. (Alternatively, if he’d been in that state, he would’ve been on the hospital.) Nonetheless he was supervised, with no threat of getting caught, and a matter of just some breaths. Perhaps there was nonetheless some hazard… nonetheless I really feel not treating these hiccups was moreover a hazard.

I’ve in no way tried that method for my hiccups. My non-public favorite residence remedy is “consuming from the far side of the glass.” AKA, consuming water the mistaken means up. Watch this video of an excellent ol’ boy demonstrating the strategy although I might objective for consuming a minimal of 6-8 fl oz of water sooner than quitting. Don’t ask me the way in which it really works; it may need one factor to do with the style bud or diaphragm.
