      well…I have looked into this for you and it seems that people think that “cures” for hiccups are actually diversions which don’t actually treat the hiccups. However, this is not for sure and anything that can relax the diaphragm might help. My personal favourites are making the hiccuper jump/scaring them or drinking a glass of water from the wrong side.
