Hikkantaka Rasa is an Ayurvedic medicine primarily used to manage the problem of hiccups. It helps to manage the involuntary contractions of the diaphragm because the each contraction is followed by a sudden closure of vocal cords that produces the distinctive "hic" sound. Diaphragm eases the process of breathing also. It helps to stimulate the nerves in the throat regions and thus manages the hiccups.
One to three pills, two to three times a day, with lemon juice, honey and black salt.
Take medicine under doctor's prescription.
