There are an endless number of hiccup cures out there, and many of them involve drinking something. This doctor recommended method shows, however, that it's not really what you drink, but how you drink it that's important. In this video from the Business Insider YouTube channel, Dr Erich Voigt, an otolaryngologist at New York University, shares a simple way to cure the hiccups that has always worked for his patients. Just fill a cup with water and drink from the opposite side of the cup that your normally drink from. So not the "thumb side", the "finger side". You'll have to tilt your head pretty far forward to do this, but it will force your abdomen muscles to contract and stop your hiccups. This method is in accordance with one of the two mechanisms that make hiccup cures work -- the other being methods that involve your breathing and CO2 in the blood. Voigt says this cure even worked on a patient who had the hiccups for two weeks straight.
