Nobody likes hangovers. If we could just snap our fingers to get rid of them the morning after a night out with friends, we would. That’s never going to happen, though, so we thought of the next best thing.
There’s no way to “poof” a hangover away, but there are ways to naturally relieve any of the symptoms you’re feeling. These are called natural cures & remedies; and you can do all of them without exposing yourself to the loud noises and bright lights of the outdoors.
Effects of a Hangover
Depending on a variety of factors from a person’s gender & weight to how much water they drank that day, their body can absorb a certain amount of alcohol per hour.
If the body doesn’t absorb and break down all the alcohol properly, a range of issues can occur including dehydration, low blood sugar, electrolyte imbalance, and stomach inflammation. When these problems begin, you’ll start to feel a hangover.
Hangovers typically happen the day after drinking, primarily in the morning. If you’ve ever woken up with a hangover, you’ve likely experienced:
- A pounding headache
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle aches
- Intense thirst
- Foggy brain and low mood
There are many products out there that claim to cure hangovers, but they may end up doing more harm to your body than good. There are plenty of natural remedies that you can find at home so you won’t have to move far from bed to start feeling more like yourself again.
How to Naturally Cure A Hangover
Here are some natural ways that you can relieve a hangover at home:
- Drink plenty of fluids – water for dehydration, coffee or tea to alleviate fatigue
- Ginger & other antioxidants – helps with nausea and upset stomach
- Vitamin B – restores energy
- Vitamin C – boosts immunity
- Chamomile – reduces anxiety and low mood
- Balanced breakfast – balances blood sugar
- Sleep (more) – restores Circadian rhythm
Utilizing Homemade Remedies
While these natural methods can certainly help rid you of a hangover, there is little reliable research and lack of a cut-and-dry cure. But with some help from natural products or habits, you are one step closer to restoring your body back to its normal state.
Preventing Future Hangovers
We hope the tips above help with curing hangovers; but, we all know it would be better to not get hangovers in the first place. Here are some ways to prevent getting a hangover the morning after a night out:
- Drink in moderation
- Choose more pure types of alcohol
- Eat nutrient-rich food before & after drinking
- Get enough sleep the night before drinking
- Have a glass of water in between every alcoholic drink
- Avoid medication that has adverse effects when mixed with alcohol
By using these prevention tools, you’ll be all set to have a fun night without regret in the morning. But if you ever have a couple too many fruity cocktails one night, turn to natural hangover remedies to help you feel refreshed and like new.
