    This is the only real way to instantly cure the hiccups! Look no further! The Hughes/Green method cures the hiccups EVERY time GUARANTEED! You will be amazed! Hundreds of instantly cured hiccupers have sent in their testimonys of deliverance! Files are available for researchers! Carefully understand both the HOW and the WHY of this method. If you dont get the WHY you might not get the HOW. Heres how to cure the hiccups:Hughes/Green Hiccups CureĀ© 1997(1) Pour a TALL glass of water.(2) Hold your breath… ***(3) IMPORTANT…PINCH YOUR NOSE CLOSED.(4) Slowly, take 10 – 20 swallows of the water…while holding your breath with your nose pinched closed.(5) When you cant stand it any more….youll know by that overwhelming drowning sensation — after a gasp, take a deep breath and relax.This cures the hiccups 99 percent of the time – guaranteed! Its a proven medical remedy! (A second treatment could be necessary for stubborn cases.)*** For stubborn cases, try EXHALING COMPLETELY and then taking 10 – 20 swallows. NOW: HERES WHY IT WORKS: Hiccups are caused by an uncontrollable spasm in the diaphragm, (the breathing muscle). Often, this spasm is triggered by irritable conditions in the smooth muscles of the stomach or the esophagus. The Hughes/Green Hiccups Cure forces an increase in the carbon dioxide levels in the diaphragm itself, as well as in the stomach and esophagus. By swallowing, you are making the muscles work — so they use up their available oxygen and replace it with carbon dioxide. By temporarily discontinuing to breath, you prohibit new oxygen from entering your body and thus create an anaerobic condition in the spasming diaphragm muscle. When the spasming diaphragm and stomach are deprived temporarily of oxygen and encounter the higher levels of carbon dioxide … you feel that scary drowning sensation! BUT this causes the spasming muscles to relax! The hiccups go away! Essentially, you are tricking your body into thinking that its drowning … and it decides to use its resources for something other than hiccuping. The rather scary drowning sensation caused by this method is NECESSARY for the method to work. If its not just a little bit difficult … it doesnt work.
