There are a variety of home remedies to resolve hiccups. From holding your breath to drinking a glass of water quickly. The common thread to most of these remedies is that carbon dioxide build up in the blood or stimulating the vagus nerve will stop hiccups. Medical care is rarely needed to resolve hiccups. If a person has hiccups for more than two days, they should seek medical care.
