Hangover can be both physiological and psychological and are usually experienced the morning after a night of heavy drinking. Symptoms include accelerated heartbeat, anxiety, body pain, dizziness, bad breath, headache, lethargy, nausea, photophobia, sensitivity to loud sounds, irritability, fatigue, stomach ache, erratic motor functions and vomiting.
Use these natural home remedies to cure hangover and prevent its reoccurrence.
Drinking water is the best way to get rid of hangover signs. The body needs water to process alcohol. Please aim to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day. In addition to water, you can drink several cups of electrolyte filled water to replenish the lost electrolytes.
Lemon can help balance the body by controlling the blood glucose level and changing the body's pH level. Add 1 teaspoon of honey to fresh lemon juice and hot water in a glass. Please stir slowly and drink slowly. Not only do this as soon as you wake up, but more than twice or three times throughout the day.
Another excellent treatment for hangover signs is honey. Rich in potassium, honey helps offset the effects of drinking too much. Besides, honey contains fructose (the type of sugar that helps metabolize extra alcohol in the body). Please take 3 to 4 teaspoons at 1 hour intervals until hangover signs are reduced. Add 1 cup to 2 tablespoons of honey to a glass of water and slowly drink several times a day. You can also spread honey over dried toast and crackers and eat it many times during a hangover.
Eating some slices of plain toast with eggs is a good idea to overcome the hangover signs. Toast carbohydrates are a good source of recovered nutrients. In addition, the carbon of the charred portion of the toast acts like a filter to help remove impurities from the body. Eggs decompose alcohol into the body and provide cysteine that reduce toxicity. Have a breakfast of 2-3 toasts and eggs in the morning. Do not forget to take 1-2 glasses of water before you eat your breakfast.
Another easy way to control the symptoms of hangover is to drink tomato juice. This vegetable juice contains fructose, a kind of sugar that helps your body to metabolize alcohol faster. In addition, it is rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes that will help you overcome the immediate after effects of drinking too much. Pour fresh tomato juice in a glass. Mix in one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and one table spoon of honey with a small amount of cayenne pepper. Please drink this juice once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
From excessive drinking, too much of the potassium is drained from your body. One simple solution is to eat bananas to replenish potassium as well as other lost electrolytes. Also, bananas help calm the stomach and increase your energy level. Eat one or two bananas for breakfast after a heavy drinking evening to alleviate symptoms of a hangover. You can also prepare honey and a sweet banana milkshake.
Ginger is another treatment for hangover signs such as nausea and vomiting. Also, ginger helps digest alcohol. Bite a small part of the ginger throughout the day to get relief from a hangover. You can also have ginger tea by adding 10 to 12 slices of fresh ginger root to about 4 cups of water and simmer for 10 minutes. Add one orange, half lemon and half a cup of juice of honey. Drink it while still warm and drink this mixture many times throughout the day.
Peppermint is a very useful herb for dealing with symptoms of hangover. It helps digestion and helps to relieve some of the most common symptoms of tension, distention and nausea associated with hangover. In addition, peppermint speeds up the detoxification process. Simply chew some fresh peppermint leaves throughout the day. It helps to relax the intestines and recover quickly. Another option is to add a few drops of peppermint oil to a hot water filled bathtub. Soak in this water for 30 minutes. This warm, soothing bath will make you feel better soon.
