The morning after a late night of partying and heavy drinking, you often wake up with a pounding headache and nausea. Usually these are also accompanied by body ache, dizziness, lethargy, increased heart rate, stomach ache and vomiting among other symptoms. Yes, that surely is the worst feeling in the world and ruins an entire day because of the queasiness. There are some medications which ease the headache, but more importantly, there are some wonderful DIY remedies that help you get rid of a bad hangover quickly.
Here are a few DIY Remedies For A Hangover:
Usually, heavy drinking leads to excess urine, and the more number of times you pass urine, the more the body loses potassium and essential electrolytes. Banana is a rich source of potassium and therefore helps in balancing the potassium levels in the body. Also, it replenishes the lost electrolytes and is easy on your stomach. You can either eat a banana directly in the morning, or make a banana shake with some honey to help get rid of the hangover.
Yes, the wonderful essential liquid for our life. Alcohol dehydrates the body when you are drinking, so one of the best remedies for getting rid of a hangover is to drink about 8-10 glasses of water in a day. Water not only hydrates your body, but also flushes out toxins from the body which might be causing a stomach problem or sickness.
Tomato is rich in minerals, vitamins and fructose, which help in balancing out the lost minerals from the body and flushing out the alcohol residue which causes nausea. Fructose is the sugar content in tomato, which replenishes the lost sugar in the blood, therefore relieving you of a hangover rapidly. Simply take a glass of tomato juice and add some honey, lemon juice and cayenne pepper to it. Drink this mixture 2-3 times in a day for quick relief.
Lemon is an effective remedy for a hangover since it helps in balancing the sugar levels in the blood and optimizes the PH level of the body. This helps in getting rid of the headache and nausea quickly. All you need to do is, add some lemon juice and honey to a glass of warm water and drink this mixture 2-3 times in a day for relief from a bad hangover.
Ginger has been used for ages for curing seasickness, which is pretty similar to a hangover. It helps in soothing the stomach and digesting the alcohol to help you get rid of the nausea and headache. Simply boil some ginger in water and let it sit for a few minutes. Strain the tea and add some honey to it. Drink this tea at least 3 times in a day, for curing the hangover.
Coconut is another effective remedy for a hangover. Since coconut is rich in potassium it replenishes the lost potassium and electrolytes from the body, thereby easing the symptoms and providing you quick relief. You can either eat coconut directly or have coconut water. Having coconut water will not only cure a hangover, but also help with the dehydration caused by alcohol.
Peppermint helps in soothing the stomach and improving the digestion. It also calms the nerves and relieves you of the bad headache caused by a hangover. Just add some dried peppermint leaves to a cup of hot water and let it sit for a few minutes. Strain the tea and drink it while it’s still warm. Repeat this process 2-3 times in a day to get rid of the nausea and vomiting. Alternatively, you can chew fresh peppermint leaves throughout the day to provide relief.
Honey is an excellent cure for a hangover. It is rich in potassium which helps in balancing out the potassium level in the body after a night of heavy drinking. Also, honey contains fructose, which replenishes the sugar in the blood and also helps in digesting the alcohol faster. You can either take honey directly, every few hours or mix honey with warm water and drink this solution several times a day for best results.
