When the sugar signal hits the nerve it tells the brain that you have just had sugar, something that the brain craves. This sensation completely blocks the signal from the brain telling your body to hiccup. It’s as if the brain forgot what it had to do. But as we said from the outset, it doesn’t always work.
If this remedy doesn’t work there could be an imbalance in the brains chemistry. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other solutions for hiccups which are, a little invasive, but work even better. If they continue to persist, extreme medical intervention may be needed, which can include implanting an electrical stimulation device in the chest which sends electrical impulses to the vagus nerve and the diaphragm.
