HICCOUGHS are spasms of the diaphragm muscles causing abrupt short inhalations with a slight gasping sound.

Sipping 1 cup of very warm good mineral water mixed with 3 tablespoons unheated honey relaxes the diaphragm muscles within a few minutes.

Applying warmth with a hot-water bottle and gently massaging the diaphragm and the upper spine just below the neck helps relax the affected muscles.
