Passing on Family Traditions

One of the best remedies that I learned, was from my paternal grandmother.

I used to get these violent hiccup attacks as a kid. I would hiccup, for what seemed like, hours.

One day, while having a hiccup attack, I remembered a hiccup remedy, that my grandmother taught me.

While I was having one of my hiccup attacks, my grandmother handed me a large glass of water.

She then instructed me to take seven large gulps of water, as fast as I could drink it. Then wait.

90% of the time, the hiccups were cured after that. If they didn’t, I needed to continue with seven more large gulps.

I can’t remember a time when this amazing remedy did not work.

It was a nice memory of my grandmother, and a nice family home remedy that I’ve passed onto my son.

This Sunday, Finn was having a hiccup attack.

He came to me right away. “Dad, I’m having hiccups. Can you show me what your grandmother used to do?” he said.

I told him to grab a large glass of water. He walked over and I gave him his instructions.

I began counting out loud as he took his large gulps. “One, two, three, ….aaaaand seven.”

I could tell after he was finished that his hiccups were completely eliminated.

We both stood still and looked at each other in silence as to not reignite this annoying human condition. After 30 seconds of no hiccups I said, “Hiccups are all gone. It works every time.”

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
