What is HiccAway?
If chronic hiccups is something you've long suffered with, HiccAway is a tried and tested method to get rid of them, without having to use an assortment of home remedies.
As per the website -- "HiccAway instantly relieves hiccups by generating enough pressure while sipping from the device to lower the diaphragm while simultaneously activating the leaf-shaped flap in the throat (The Epiglottis). Doing this stimulates two key nerves (The Phrenic & Vagus Nerves) responsible for the hiccups, allowing the brain to reset and stop the hiccups. Sounds complicated but HiccAway will do all the work, all you need to do is sip some water & witness instant hiccup relief! The creator of HiccAway has already figured out all of the details, you just have to use this groundbreaking hiccup treatment to understand that it doesn't matter how it works, just that it works."

For Dr Seifi, HiccAway was born in order to help his patients during recovery. "After witnessing his patients uncomfortable with hiccups during intense recovery he realized that there had to be a simple way to relieve this unnecessary discomfort. In his 25 year profession, he had seen solutions and remedies for hundreds of pains, aches and problems, except for one…hiccups. He was determined to create a solution. And after a couple years of testing and countless variations he developed HiccAway! The first ever, drug-free, guaranteed solution to instantly relieve hiccups." -- the HiccAway website mentions.
