Once or more everyone has been the victim of continuous hiccups, we wonder how they arise and how to stop them by easy methods. Some times they are ok but sometimes they can become embarrassing when they comes in front of others, when we are in the office, in a meeting, in some religious act. They could be omitted if for a short period but if they come for longer periods than they become a headache. This is a natural phenomenon which occurs when our diaphragm suddenly starts contracting in an involuntary reaction and at the same time the larynx also contracts, this causes the closing of glottis that blocks the air, which further produces sound.
There are some simple ways to get rid of hiccups. Some of them are as holding your nose to avoid them, Quickly having a glass of water, or decreasing the hiccups by regulating the nasopharynx and the nerve that runs from the brain to the stomach handles it. Its weird but you can let someone frighten you to remove our mind from hiccups, Gargling with water also helps a bit, you can use salt to smell and get rid away.
