Hangovers

hangover

Depending on the various circumstances of the moment, a hangover may follow a night of partying, celebrating, or a simple dinner out with one too many glasses of wine. When the body has had all of the alcohol it can take, an assortment of unpleasant aftereffects may develop. While hangovers often last for about 12 to 36 hours, there have been instances where the unwanted results of heavy alcohol consumption linger for 48 to 72 hours.

Causes and Symptoms

While excessive alcohol consumption based on age, height, weight, frequency of drinks, and other factors are the main culprit of a hangover, there are more specific causes to pay attention to. This includes hypoglycemia, a deficiency in vitamin B12, as well as dehydration, where the ethanol in alcoholic drinks often causes the dehydrating effects associated with a hangover.


When suffering from a hangover, you may battle headaches and nausea. Your body may feel weak as you try to move about. Your actions will most likely appear slow. Some experience sensitivity to light and noise, choosing to close curtains and stay under the covers for a little longer than usual. Excessive thirst is also a symptom that comes with a hangover. A flushed appearance may decorate the face. Additional hangover symptoms include dry mouth, diarrhea, anxiety, irritability, sleepless nights, erratic speech, and sometimes an increase in body temperature.

Natural Cures

While there are many different so-called hangover remedies on the market to consider, you may want to turn towards a more natural way to battle symptoms associated with heavy drinking. Dismiss the hangover pill remedy and turn towards natural approaches, which often utilize the detoxifying properties of herbs, plants, and roots. Below you will find some of the helpful options that have been known to provide hangover relief:

a) Dandelion:

When it comes to detoxifying the body, dandelion root is considered one of the most effective choices. Through seeking out the liver and gall bladder in order to assist in the removal of toxins from the body, dandelion root helps to ease the symptoms of a hangover. To create your own natural cure at home, create a decoction by combining 15 grams of dandelion root and 750 ml of water. The decoction should be taken in small quantities frequently throughout the day.

b) Milk Thistle:

To cure hangover symptoms, try taking 500mg capsules containing the seeds of milk thistle to lessen the blow of the reactions that cause hangover experiences to worsen.

c) Bananas:

This natural hangover remedy replenishes the body of fructose and potassium, which is lost through excessive drinking. Additional advantages to consuming this item includes a natural antacid that calms nausea, and a high level of magnesium, which helps headaches to relax.

d) Vitamin C:

A loss of vitamin C occurs during a hangover. Therefore, consuming foods and beverages, such as orange juice and tomatoes are recommended. You may also take a 600 mg vitamin C tablet to get your fill.

e) Hot Bath:

What is more natural than surrounding yourself with water? The heat from the bath will help you to sweat out the toxins that lead to hangover symptoms.

f) Drink Water:

Hangover prevention might be achieved when drinking plenty of water before, during, and after taking in large amounts of alcohol. This natural cure will also fight the dehydrating effects that occur with the presence of ethanol throughout the bloodstream and body.

    eating salt & vinegar potato chips…helps replenish electrolytes and salt levels in your body.

  2. Amanda Says:

    YS Salt has helped me, Hot French Fires helps, the warmth of the food is helpful for the irritability. And Vitamin water, or water added with lime (citrus/Lemon) since water can irritate your stomach if you are nausious.

  3. Linda M Says:

    Gaterade is very helpful the next morning to replace the electrolytes. And although it is difficult to do, an 8 oz glass of water before you go to bed is beneficial as well.

  4. Jeanine Says:

    1 8oz glass of water and 3 ibuprophen before bed ( keep water next to the bed if you wake up thirsty)Breakfast: Toast, banana, glass of cold milk. Works everytime:)

    Dunkin donuts French Vanilla iced coffee and two advil

  10. Ronny Says:

    An alkaseltzer right before you go to sleep helps tremendously

  11. Expert on Hangover! Says:

    DO NOT drink milk the next morning unless you want it to curdle in your stomach with the drinks from the night before – although it may seem a good idea at first, after 15 minutes it will come straight back up!
    Toast without butter or Weetabix and lots of water to rehydrate – and perhaps an extra hour in bed. :o)

  12. Katie Says:

    i will honestly tell you, and this may sound crazy because they are so bad for you…
    but an energy drink…
    i have found that if you drink an energy drink, directly after you have consumed the great ammount of alcohol…
    as soon as you start feeling a little sick…
    just drink it.!!
    i have found that Grape flavored NOS works really well…
    happy drinking.!!

  13. hddad Says:

    Gatoraide and a shot of jack is the cure.

  14. tarah Says:

    i agree with have another beer, seriously, it works

  15. Larry F Says:

    After a long and EXCESSIVE stint of drinking (almost nightly), I had issue with eating too late, getting the munchies and sunbsequent weight gain. So before I would start drining I would prep vegetables in my steamer, asparagus, carrots, broccoli, and when I got home I would munch on these. Next day absolutely no hangover, in fact I felt pretty good. Only time I had a recent hangover was when I was out of veggies.

  16. Jasmine Says:

    Be Careful!!!!
    Ibuprofen and/or acetaminophen are NOT good to mix with a hangover or taken to prevent a hangover.

    Google this if you’d like.
    They are hard on your liver, which is already breaking down the alcohol, and then throw something else in there that is tough on it…
    Also, those are not so great to the stomach lining which also gets iirritated/broken down by alcohol consumption.
    Be nice to your bodies and you will feel better!!!

  17. Kendra Says:

    Coconut water works really well also. 11 fluid ounces has more potassium than a banana and it is packed full of electrolytes.

  18. domonique Says:

    sausage and scrambled egg breakfast burritos from mcdonalds and a large powerade.

  19. Rob Says:

    Before I go to sleep I drink ALOT of water. Even in the morning if I wake up with a dry mouth–more water. I usually feel an instant boost. And some music always helps. (with or without a joint)

  20. Bryan Says:

    V8 juice! Then water or an electrolyte drink. In the baby aisle at your grocery store is something called ‘Pedialite’. Drink one of these and you will feel much better…it has more electrolytes than Gatorade.

  21. Mau Says:

    lots of cold water after waking up in the morning will make you feel better.

  22. Moma Says:

    A sports drink of your prefrance, & a banana. Continue to sip on the sports drinks throughout the day. They repleanish potassium & electrolytes. Any of the remedies that do this will work. I’ve never tried the coconut water, but knowing a little something about natural remedies & fixes, it makes good sence to me.

  23. marie Says:

    I found a great remedy for the common hangover, If you happen to drink to much try this:
    Drink a glass of water before bedtime, keep a glass by your bed and sip it, when you get up in the morning take 2 advil, and a dramamine with a glass of water, lay back down for about an hour, and you will feel so much better when you get up. No more headache or dizzy feeling.

  24. scorpian :) Says:

    the BEST cure is to fill half a middy glass with straight raspberry cordial (cottee’s is the best) and the other half with water, it may be thick but it’s what you need… drink this not long AFTER you are done drinking alcohol, BEFORE you go to bed… the cordial puts all the goodies back into you body while you sleep…if you just drink water you will feel sick… the cordial gives your body the sugar it would get from one of those energy drinks or beroca and is better for you…it NEVER fails… also if you have had a BIG night, keep another glass beside your bed as you sleep to drink when your mouth feels dry…or have another glass when you wake up!! PS you can also prepare this ahead of time and keep a few bottles in the fridge incase your eye-hand coordination is not so good when you get home … LOL.. :) … enjoy

  25. EinRand Says:

    It’s all about electrolytes!
    A) One can of V8 juice (low Sodium variety contains 1180 mg potassium, add B) 1/2 teaspoon NoSalt (1300 mg potassium), flavor to taste with tobasco sauce, and take with C) 200 to 400 mg Magnesium (Citrate) 50 to 100% RDA (aids absorption and protects stomach from upset which is necessary.) A+B+C once or twice a day = complete cure without going off a low carb diet. Follow with 12oz glass of water/hr. RDA K rec. 3.5g, adults could easily use 6g, and infants could die with 10grams at once, so be careful if kids in house.

  26. james Says:
