Hiccups has been traditionally resilient against both mainstream and alternative methods, though that may very well soon change thanks to a young 13-year-old girl. Often considered a minor inconvenience by many, some individuals actually suffer from chronic hiccups that can actually hinder their daily lives in a very serious way.
It all started a couple years ago when Mallory Kievman got a tough case of hiccups. Trying nearly everything to make them stop. Kievman sipped juice, drank water upside-down, and tried a number of other ‘folk’ remedies for hiccups. After multiple failures, she decided to search for something that did work.
Mallory created a solution involving sugar and apple cider vinegar, both mixed together into a ‘candy’ form and attached to a lollipop stick. This new natural remedy is now receiving serious attention. As a result, she is now being rewarded with an MBA team from the University of Connecticut in order to help her bring her new innovative product to market — which she plans to do this summer.
“It triggers a set of nerves in your throat and mouth that are responsible for the hiccup reflex arc,” said Mallory
Hiccup relief can now be added to the many benefits of apple cider vinegar which are continually being revealed. Created in her home kitchen, the ‘candy’ hiccups remedy presents the benefits of apple cider vinegar while also providing serious relief to those endearing a case of the hiccups. Apple cider vinegar can be used to help treat strep throat, acid reflux, high blood pressure, asthma, and so many other health complications.
“It’s very rare, when you’re evaluating businesses, that you can envision a company or product being around 100 years from now,” said Danny Briere, a serial entrepreneur
In the near future the product may soon be lining the shelves of traditional and alternative stores alike, and may pave the way for more alternative remedies achieve unprecedented popularity in the marketplace.
