Shock your hickups away! A device to treat severe hiccups has finally been created. Resembling the toy phones you use to make as a child, you put one to your temple and drink from the other one, creating an electrical current. Yep. Just shock yourself and your hiccups magically disappear. Photo borrowed from Brenda Lee.

Implications - DIY home products have always been both cost-effective and the better alternative to purchasing expensive designer items. This DIY health item may inspire those in the medical industry to come up with remedies that are readily available at home and are effective on a functional basis. It may not cure a fever, but for small things such as hiccups, homemade medicine may help.
