Home Remedy to Cure a Hangover

1 Comment January 02

There are few Home Remedy Cures for a Hangover like this one.Well, if you managed to Google How to Cure a Handover, and found this site and you are reading you must not be that hung over. So, I will assume you are doing preemptive research for your next all night binger. This post may be coming a little late for some of you that rang in the new year with a little too much of your favorite alcoholic beverage. For those of you, I feel bad, but at the same time if it were not for you I would not have thought to write this article. So here are my tips to avoiding a hangover.

Before Drinking
Cure for a Hangover

I know most of you do not plan on getting THAT drunk, just having a few drinks. So preparation before hand seems difficult to plan for. Well, if you can remember a few of these tips as you see the night heading towards drunkenness you still have a chance for success.

Tips to prevent a hangover
  1. Water, Water, Water – You must hydrate in order to keep the fluids moving through your body
  2. Carb Up – French Fries, Hamburgers, a piece of stale bread – give the booze something to cling to besides the inner wall of your stomach.
  3. Take a multivitamin to replace the vitamins and minerals you will lose as a result of drinking alcohol. Taking Thiamine (Vitamin B1) has been shown to help your body process alcohol and reduce negative side effects the morning after.

While Drinking

As you begin to really enjoy the moment, if you can have a flash back or two, this list should help fend off the impending hang over.

How to Prevent a Hangover
  1. Water, Water, Water – If you can drink a glass of water for every drink you are ahead of the game.
  2. Avoid Fruity Liquor – If possible stick with a clear form of Alcohol, Vodka, Rum and high end tequila.
  3. Drink Top Shelf – Avoid ordering a Rum and Coke, as you will get the cheapest rum in the house. Instead order a Bacardi and Coke, or a Top Shelf Rum and Coke. Cheap booze is a quick street to a nasty hang over.
  4. Try to drink the same booze all night long, if you friends are doing shots, try to find one shot you like and keep ordering it, rather than the flavor of the moment.
  5. Eat – Most anything will help at this point, if you can find something healthy the vitamins will help

Before Sleeping

Now that you have finished drinking for the night, and you are going to lay your head down on the pillow, toilet, bathroom floor, etc. If you can muster the energy here are a few final tips that should keep the morning more comfortable.

Home Remedy Cure for Hangover
  1. Did I mention you should be drinking water? Drink as much as you can put down, keep a glass by the bed so if you wake up you do not have far to go to replenish.
  2. Go ahead, have another glass of water
  3. On the way home from the bar, have the driver stop by a convenience store. Get a Gatorade, or Power Aid, you flavor of choice, mine is orange, and power that down. This can help replace some of the fluids and electrolytes lost during the evening.

The Morning After
Cure for a Hangover

Ugh…if you did not follow the steps above, you are no feeling very good right now. If you did follow the steps above you should be happy and chipper. Well maybe not, but at least you are on the way. Try following the steps below in order

Additional Cure for Hangover
  1. Water – Top the morning off with as much water as you can stomach
  2. As bad as it may sound, food is your friend right now. This meal is one of the hardest meals for me to eat, but I know it is the best thing I can do for myself. You will find the hang over food that works best for you, but for me it is always McDonald’s. If for some reason I am up while they are serving breakfast here is my cure, 1 Large Coke, 1 Large Orange Juice, 1 Hashbrown, 1 Sausage Biscuit with Egg and Cheese. If this day is going as it should, McDonald’s is not serving breakfast, so my lunch menu cure, 1 Large Coke, 1 Large French Fry, 1 Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
    I usually have to drink the entire coke before my body will even consider eating the food, but once I get started the fry or hashbrown is an easy start, followed by the protein of the sandwich. Again, eating seems impossible, but it is a must if you want to get over this hangover without spending a day in bed.

  3. Still Struggling? Hair of the Dog you bit…this does not mean go back to having tequila poppers, more have a little booze. The best choice here is a bloody mary, the vodka dulls the pain, but the tomato juice gives your body something to work on and vitamins you lose during the binger.
  4. Last Resort – Pain Killers, there are many side affects to alcohol and pain killers, but as long as you have food in your stomach and are not still drunk you should be fine.
  5. Alka Seltzer Morning Relief – This is a recent remedy that I have not tried myself, but I hear many people rave about it. So for the hang over that will not end this may be your last options.

My hope is the above Home Remedy to Cure a Hangover will guide you through a successful drinking experience. Stopping drinking is not and option, it is what you do while you are drinking that is a choice.

    I worked for an alcohol distributor for 17 yrs, and a trick of the trade was bitters. Next time try a shot of Angostura Bitters for a quick fix of a hangover. It is a great digestif and will settle your stomach and at 90 proof will clear some of the cobwebs from your head. It usually takes about 10-15 minutes before you start to feel fine. Sometimes for a severe hang over you made need to tip another shot or two before you feel better.

I “Hate” Dr Oz

This is a site for men, or more to the point, this is a site for men in relationships. Husbands, boyfriends and men that have to deal with the daily grind of life, and are then subject to the ensnaring power of Doctor Oz over our better half, the women in our lives.

Don’t get us wrong, we actually think Dr Oz is a great doctor, and we don’t hate him...specifically ☺
