8 Ways To Cure Yesterday’s Hangover
Hangover hits different people differently, and similarly different people have different ways of coping with it. Many of these remedies are common and have varying success rates. After yesterday’s fun and frolic, we’re sure many of you would be in need of them.
Alcohol saps the body of water and salts and the only way to keep the balance right is by drinking water. While it is a good idea to keep yourself hydrated when drinking, but when all cares go to the wind gulp down a full bottle of water before you crash into bed for the night. Trust us, you’ll save your body a lot of misery the next morning.
With water the body also loses essential salts, vitamins and minerals, sports drinks and Electral is an instant replenishment of those. Or you can just stick to water too.
Nothing works better than good rest and plenty of shut eye. This is our favorite remedy too but alas busy lives don’t allow us the pleasure of sleep.
If you’re the one with queasy stomach, try a piece of dry toast. Carbohydrates help bring back sugar level to normalcy.
Fried chicken, Chip Butty sandwich, cheese laden pizza, whatever is the greasiest junk food you can stomach. Is it healthy? No way, but it gives the body chance to focus on something else apart from the alcohol and breaking down complex fat sources is a good diversion.
Not the best option as coffee also dehydrates the body. But if this is your fix to get you sober, we won’t stop you.
Bloody Mary (Hair of the Dog)
Yes, Hair of the Dog is to swear by hangover cure, but going back to the same alcohol again to cure hangovers isn’t the smartest move. Try a Bloody Mary instead; tomato juice and celery are full of vitamins which have depleted with all the drinking, hint of vodka is to keep in theme with Hair of the Dog theory. Ideally we’d suggest a Virgin Mary.
Too painful to even think about it? We’re sure that it is. And while scientifically there is no logic behind the ‘sweat the alcohol out’ theory, endorphins do improve your mood. That’s an upside!
