• Hangover

    I would imagine that very few, if any, people have never experienced a hangover, and hangovers are not pleasant experiences. You feel like death is around the corner don’t you?

    Many opt for popping over the counter remedies such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen which can be helpful, although harsh on your liver, which, by the way, is already suffering from the damage the alcohol you consumed is causing.

     

    Get painful hangovers? Try Zaca’s Hangover Patch, it works immediately.

     

    Here we will look at some hangover remedies that you can try. Some of these you may already have in your home so you could give them a try immediately. Others may require a visit to the store (or an online purchase so you’re better prepared for the next time) so if you’re currently suffering with a hangover and are unable to get yourself to the store, perhaps a good friend or loved one can pick the items up for you.

    I do not think there is a need to cover what causes a hangover since you already know what got you to this point so we’ll focus instead on providing as much remedies as possible.

    The most common symptoms of a hangover are; (You may not have all of these symptoms as everyone is different).

    1. Headaches
    2. Nausea
    3. Dry Mouth
    4. Dizziness
    5. Sensitivity to light and sound
    6. Muscle aches
    7. Irritability
    8. Constant thirst
    9. Fatigue
    10. Diarrhea

    Okay, let’s get to remedies so that you can start feeling better quickly.

    1. Bananas – bananas provide potassium and magnesium that your body loses when you are consuming alcohol. You could make a banana milkshake with some honey.

    2. Ginger – this has always been used for treating nausea. You could drink Ginger Ale or make a ginger tea. Ginger cookies can also help.

    3. Honey,Lemon & Hot Water – mix up and drink

    4. Soup – stay with a clear soup like a broth. Even though the thought of food might make you feel even worse your body needs sustenance to aid in your recovery from a hangover. Chicken noodle soup would be good if you can handle the noodles and vegetables in this.

    5. Ice – use an ice pack or simply put some ice cubes in a small towel and apply to your forehead.

    6. Orange Juice & Honey – mix some honey into a glass of orange juice (preferably fresh squeezed orange juice)

    7. Time – given enough time, your body will deal with the effects of your over-consumption of alcohol. Sleep it off.

    8. Water- alcohol dehydrates your body so drinking as much water as you can tolerate will help speed your recovery (ideally you should drink a lot of water BEFORE you go to bed as this will help to lessen the severity of a hangover). It also helps prevent a hangover if you drink a glass of water in between your alcoholic drinks.

    9. B-Complex Vitamins – your body loses these during alcohol consumption so you need to replenish the supply your body needs.

    10. Milk Thistle – this helps your liver to recover

    11. Watermelon – this will help to rehydrate you while also providing you with needed nutrients

    12. Club Soda & Bitters – this helps with the nausea and is a bartenders favorite

    13. Pineapple Juice

    14. Greasy Food – many swear that eating greasy food like a hamburger from a fast food joint helps them feel better. Not sure exactly why this helps.

    15. Probiotics – these help maintain a balance of good and bad bacteria in your body.

    16. Peppermint – you could make a peppermint tea.

    17. Tomato Juice – In addition to being a preventative remedy, tomato juice contains fructose which helps your body metabolize alcohol more quickly. This is probably why the morning-after Bloody Mary seems to work for many.

    18. Hang-Over Morning Mend – something you may want to have on hand for future hangovers.
