11 Hangover Remedies

Expert Tips on How to Cure a Hangover

One moment you’re out having a blast with friends, ordering another round of drinks and feeling invincible; the next thing you know you’re waking up to a pounding headache, maybe some nausea, and in your seriously irritable state, you swear you’ll never drinking again. While researchers haven’t yet found the perfect hangover cure, there are things you can do to feel a lot better sooner. The next time you’ve had one too many, follow a few of these expert-recommended hangover remedies: 

Water
Glass of water
You probably already know this one, but it's the most important thing on this list. The whole reason you’re suffering from a hangover in the first place is because your body is dehydrated and needs water. Alcohol is a diuretic (remember all those trips to the bathroom between drinks?), which means it will dehydrate you if you are not loading up on water during and after drinking. Drink at least one full large glass of water before you go to bed and continue drinking copious amounts the next day. You’ll want to drink way more than your usual 8 glasses a day. The more H2O you get in your body, the better you’re going to feel. 

Coconut Water
Coconut water
For a beverage that’s both hydrating and high in electrolytes, coconut water is a great choice. But can it help remedy a hangover? “I don’t think it’s the end-all-be-all for hangovers,” explains Registered Dietician and Nutrition Coach Hana Feeney, “but since it does taste good and it has the important electrolyte potassium, you are likely to rehydrate better with coconut water and that does cure a hangover!” 

Calming Foods
Calming foods
Everyone’s got a post-drinking food they crave and swear helps remedy their hangover, like greasy fries or  chicken and waffles. But it would be best for your body to just eat healthy. “Make sure you eat calming foods that are not too fatty or fried,” recommends integrative medicine physician Dr. Julie Chen, MD. “Make sure you are getting the minerals necessary for healthy body functioning and recovery, such as [those] in vegetables, fruits and nuts.” Try an omelet loaded with veggies with a side of whole wheat toast. 

Ginger Tea
Ginger tea
If you often suffer from hangovers with grabbing-the-grass-so-you-don’t-fall-off-the-earth nausea, try sipping on ginger tea. Ginger is known to gently settle the stomach, which can really help you to feel closer to normal after drinking. You could also try just straight up eating pickled ginger (like you get with sushi). 

Vitamin Repletion
Not only does alcohol leave you dehydrated, but it also “impairs absorption and enhances excretion of B vitamins,” says Registered Dietician Andrea Garman. This can leave you feeling sluggish and weak. To fix the situation, you can use a vitamin-enhanced drink such as Emergen-C (you know, those little packets loaded with Vitamin C and B that you add to a glass of water). This is a double win because you’re getting rehydrated with the water while replenishing the vitamins you lost living it up last night.  

Carbs
Carbohydrates
Finally an excuse to eat carbs! If you’ve had a few too many drinks, your body is working overtime to metabolize the alcohol--this means your body doesn't properly perform normal functions (like responding to low blood sugar with spiking glucose levels). The result? You feel lethargic, cranky and just plain gross. Eating carbohydrates can help to bring your blood sugar levels back to normal while your liver is over-booked processing those last few cocktails. Opt for carbs that are gentle on the stomach, like wheat crackers, toast or a banana. 

Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken Noodle SoupJust like it did in your childhood days, chicken noodle soup can help you feel better even after a night of adult debauchery. The soup will rehydrate you while the sodium it contains is an important electrolyte your hungover body needs to replenish. Plus you get other important nutrients from the soup's ingredients (opt for one that contains vegetables). 

Pain Meds
When you wake up with a thumping head, you’ll definitely be tempted to reach into the medicine cabinet, but be sure you’re making the right choice or it could have serious consequences. When you’ve been drinking, you want to avoid acetaminophen (found in Tylenol and other over the counter pain medications), which can lead to, in some cases, severe liver damage. Instead, many recommend non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen, naproxen or good ol’ aspirin. But either way, try to avoid taking these medicines while the alcohol is still in your system. 

Pickles
Pickles
Yeah, it sounds strange, but pickles have vinegar and water that will help rehydrate your body after drinking, not to mention sodium. When you drink, your body loses sodium, a key electrolyte. Throwing a few pickles into your mix will help get your body on the road to recovery.

Sleep
A foolproof way to ease a hangover is to sleep it off—if you’re able. Although one of the best ways to get better sleep is to avoid alcohol, if you’ve already done the damage, try heading back to bed after hydrating and eating breakfast. While you’re catching zzz’s your body will be busy repairing itself, and you won’t be conscious to the nagging hangover symptoms. 

Hangover Beauty Treatment
If you must go out and be a productive member of society after being out all night, keep these quick makeup tricks on standby. Before you go to bed, wash your face and apply lots of moisturizer. The next day, to reduce puffy eyes, go for iced-down tea bags over the eyes for a few minutes or you can even use a little Preparation H--yes, that Preparation H--around the eye area (be careful not to get it in your eyes). Apply a light shade of eye shadow, which will make even tired eyes look brighter. And don’t forget a little bronzer and cheek stain can really help perk up your complexion.

Hi everyone, I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My name is Mary Wilkie from England. My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.
