Top 7 Home Remedies For Hangovers

Top 7 Home Remedies For Hangovers

The most effective remedies for hangovers are quite obvious…

1.Banana
As simple as it sounds, this potassium-packed fruit may just be your best friend on those painful mornings after drinking. Excess alcohol stimulates you to urinate, which means that you are draining your body not only of liquids, but also essential nutrients like potassium. Potassium provides you with energy and lowers blood pressure, which can exacerbate pounding headaches. Also, with increased oxygenation and easier blood flow around the body, toxins can be eliminated faster, and your fuzzy thought processes will clear up as your brain gets the essential nutrients and oxygen that it needs to function.

2.Ginger
One of the most debilitating parts of a hangover are the nausea and vomiting. This is not only unpleasant, but also very bad for your throat, gums, and teeth, since much of the vomit will be acidic and full of stomach bile. To reduce nausea and vomiting, ginger has been used for thousands of years, initially as a solution for seasickness. Therefore ginger ale or brewing a pot of ginger tea can do wonders for easing your upset stomach and reducing the sensation of nausea or the chances of making another run for the bathroom.

3.Kombucha
You don’t necessarily lose all the vitamins and nutrients in your body when you drink, but repairing damage to your liver and detoxifying the body does drain your systems of their essential elements. Therefore, a vitamin-packed supplement like kombucha is a perfect way to get back to normal and on your feet. Kombucha can be purchased at health food stores, but if you plan ahead for a big night of drinking, you can even make it at home. It is actually a fermented version of sweetened tea that contains various yeast cultures and bacteria that have a strong, positive influence on the body. You place a kombucha mushroom in a sugary black, white, or green tea in a large container and let it ferment for a week or two. 

Be sure that it is sealed well, to prevent the development of mold or other bacteria that you don’t want. When the culture begins to grow, you can separate off the layers and place it in new containers for further development for future hangovers. You can repeat this process indefinitely. Kombucha is packed with acetic acid, butyric acid, B-vitamins, glucuronic acid (liver detoxifier), lactic acid, malic acid, and oxalic acid. This massive compilation of beneficial acids being put back into your body can help you feel better very quickly, and boost the repair from any damage you may have done in your bout of drinking.

4.Chicken Soup
This has long been used as a solution for people who aren’t feeling well, because it is easy on the stomach, yet filling. However, a better solution is to make your own chicken or beef stock out of high-quality chicken or beef (which the cans and cartons of chicken stock do NOT contain), mix in some vegetables and sea salt and let it simmer. It usually takes 4-6 hours to make a truly good chicken stock, so it is a good way to prepare for a hangover and plan ahead. This will be ripe with necessary vitamins and nutrients from the veggies and chicken that will reorient your systems and balance the nutrients in your body.
5.Water
This might be an obvious one, but drinking water is the best way to prevent and treat a hangover. It is recommended to drink at least two glasses of water when going to bed after drinking excessively, but if you can’t make it to the sink the night before, make sure you are consistently drinking water during the hangover. Alcohol has a serious dehydrating effect on the body, not to mention the excessive urination which has also dried the body out. Your hangover symptoms will fade much faster with 5 or 6 glasses of water flowing through your body, moving the toxins along, and flushing them out of the body.

6.Eat Healthy
It may be comforting to eat junk food and pizza the night after a serious binge of drinking, but that is not going to help you feel better faster. With the exception of some simple sugars from fruit or honey, don’t indulge in sugar-rich foods. You should eat fresh vegetables and high-protein foods, as well as healthy fats. High protein-foods like eggs are also common cures for hangovers for this reason.Most importantly, and what many people forget, eat cultured food, meaning food that is grown using bacterial cultures like yogurt, pickles, sauerkraut, kefir, and kombucha. The beneficial bacteria that remain in this food will greatly increase your chances of feeling better faster, and get your stomach back to its natural comfort levels.

7.Natural Juices
Despite the fact that alcohol has a lot of sugar in it, by the time the hangover has hit, that sugar will have been used up. Along with water, be sure to drink some freshly-squeezed juice, which will resupply your body with sugar, antioxidants, and natural electrolytes like those found in sports drinks. If you stomach is upset, avoid highly acidic fruits like oranges, and go for apple juice instead. You want to put vitamin B and C back in your body, so fruit juice like tangerine, grapefruit, guava, or even strawberry juice is perfect. Smoothies also work great if you don’t want to go through the trouble of squeezing fruit juice when your head is pounding!
