It’s fun to party the night away, to have good drink with friends. Sometimes we love the drinking and the hanging out so much that we’ll hate to stop and we just keep going on and on.
Waking up with that hangover feeling can be awful and you’ll wish you can undo the damage. Yes, you can get well and recover from your hangover state.

– Rehydrate
Hangovers are a sign that your body is extremely dehydrated. Staying hydrated will alleviate the headaches, dizziness, and lightheadedness. Drink plenty of water. Drink coconut water or sports drinks, both of which are rich in electrolytes.

– Avoid coffee or caffeinated teas. Many people drink coffee in order to “wake up” from a hangover, but the caffeine will only make matters worse by further dehydrating you.
Try ginger ale. If you’re feeling nauseated, the ginger helps calm your stomach.

– Take a painkiller. Avoid Acetaminophen, due to liver-damaging reactions with alcohol metabolites. Aspirin or ibuprofen are both fine choices if you have a headache. Be sure to read the instructions and take only the recommended dose.

– Eat crackers, toast, or other mild-flavored carbohydrates. These foods alleviate nausea and help your body soak up the alcohol in your system. Avoid foods that are acidic or spicy, since they are more difficult for your body to digest. Avoid foods that are heavy or oily, since they increase the feeling of nausea.

– Don’t drink alcohol to cure a hangover. Alcohol may temporarily make you feel better, but it will ultimately dehydrate you and leave you feeling worse later on in the day. If you decide to have a drink, stick with a Bloody Mary or a cold beer, and do not overdo it. You need to give your body a chance to recover. Only drink if you have no obligations, like work or school, for the rest of the day.

The Food Cure

– Eat potatoes with milk. Drinking too much alcohol can eliminate your body’s supply of potassium and calcium, and potatoes with milk are an excellent source of these minerals (even better than bananas or pills.)

– Make ginger tea. Ginger helps alleviate nausea due to hangovers and motion sickness. To make ginger tea, cut up ginger root and boil it in water.

– Drink boiled water with honey and lemon. Lemons replenish the vitamins you need and honey helps balance your blood sugar levels, which may have fluctuated due to alcohol consumption.

– Make milk thistle tea. Milk thistle is believed to cleanse the liver of the harmful toxins in alcohol. To make the tea, add a teaspoon of milk thistle seeds to a cup of water, boil, and drain.
