A man says he's found a way to stop hiccups and now he's working to get his product on major store shelves.

Two years ago, Chuck Ray developed the hiccup stick.

You place the stick lengthwise across your mouth, bite down, and drink a glass of water.

He says he came up with the idea sitting in his office with a case of the hiccups.

He now works full time as CEO of his company called "hicural."

The product is currently sold online for about $7.99, but he hopes to get it into a national retail chain within the next six months.
