Homeopathy Medicine for Hiccups


There are various types of hiccups, named after how long they last, which are brought on by a sudden contraction of the diaphragm and the muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen.

Up to 48 hours can pass between “regular” hiccup episodes.

When the vocal cords suddenly close after an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm, which is the muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen and is crucial to breathing, the result is the distinctive “hic” sound.


A slight feeling of tightness in the chest, abdomen, or throat may occasionally accompany the symptom of hiccupping.


For hiccups to last less than 48 hours, the following are the most typical triggers:

  • Drinking carbonated beverages
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Eating too much
  • Excitement or emotional stress
  • Sudden temperature changes
  • Sucking on candy or chewing gum while inhaling air

The following categories of causes can be used to classify the causes of hiccups that last longer than 48 hours.

Nerve damage or irritation

The diaphragm muscle is served by the vagus or phrenic nerves, which may be damaged or irritated.

  • Our eardrum being touched by a hair or other object in the ear
  • Our neck has a growth, cyst, or goiter.
  • Gastroesophageal reflux
  • Sore throat or laryngitis

Central nervous system disorders

The normal regulation of the hiccup reflex by our bodies can be interfered with by various conditions, such as:

  • Encephalitis
  • Meningitis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Tumors

Metabolic disorders and drugs

Chronic cramps may result from:

  • Alcoholism
  • Anesthesia
  • Barbiturates
  • Diabetes
  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Kidney disease
  • Steroids
  • Tranquilizers


In addition to the fact that men are much more likely than women to experience long-term hiccups, the following factors may also make us more susceptible to them:

  • Short-term and long-term hiccups have been linked to some cases of mental or emotional problems, including anxiety, stress, and excitement.
  • Surgery: Following general anesthesia or operations involving the abdominal organs, some patients experience hiccups.


Long-lasting hiccups could be disruptive to:
