7 Step Hangover Cure

By  | 

If you’re like the majority of the population, chances are you’ll wake up at some point over the next several weeks with a hangover.

Headache. Nausea. Exhaustion.

Wishing you hadn’t had that one last drink…

Wishing your kids weren’t screaming in your face at the crack of dawn…

Yeah – chances are it will happen at some point over the holidays.

Hangover Cure

The headache has set in, and your new best friends are your sweatpants and your couch. You set your intentions, but the cookies and the cocktails still got ya.

Well, it happens sometimes.

But what you do next is important – and we’ve got ya here.

That pesky stomach or headache can last two days or two hours depending on what you do with it.

Let’s stop all that in it’s tracks. Here are some tried and true tactics when it comes to dealing with “what’s been done.”

1. Water

You guessed it…water. Chug a glass pre-bed. Oldie but a goodie.

2. Skip the ibuprofen

Skip the ibuprofen before bed! It can cause quite a bit of damage when you’ve already give your liver a run for it’s money. We love Zyflamend by New Chapter, but if you are desperate, aspirin will be easier on your body then ibuprofen.

3. Coconut Water

Choose electrolyte water and/or coconut water in the morning as you recharge and recover.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

Don’t forget your apple cider vinegar in the morning. What’s do I do with apple cider vinegar? You take a few tablespoons and down the hatch – straight or diluted in water. Will you like it? Maybe not. Will it help? Yes.

5. Breakfast

Don’t even think about skipping it (not that you would). Protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates will absorb and eliminate toxins.

Make a large egg scramble and pack it with veggies with a side of sweet potato hash. Eggs support detoxification. Scramble them up with lots of veggies for added antioxidant power! Learn something new everyday, right?

6. Ginger Tea

Upset stomach? Brew some ginger tea. Ginger is powerful against nausea.

7. Lime Juice

Lime and lemon juice help balance Ph. First thing in the morning add the juice of 1 lime or lemon to some warm water. Stir in some raw honey and sip. Add apple cider vinegar for extra points.

    I totally knew ginger for nausea from two pregnancies where I was constantly nauseous and the water one I knew from college and back-in-the-day. But thanks for sharing a few of the others and will so have to keep in mind.

    Apple Cider Vinegar REALLY works! I take it almost every day (not for hangovers, just for good health… lol). It tastes disgusting, but it’s really good for you. Just make sure it is natural – unfiltered and unpasteurized – if not, you won’t get nearly as many health benefits.

    Hi there! Great tips, aside from #2. You have it backwards. Aspirin is a blood thinner, which is going to make you feel worse. The thinner your blood, the high the proportion of alcohol to blood in your system. Ibuprofen in the morning when you wake up is the better option. Thanks for the other tips though!

    Ibuprofen is metabolized by the kidneys, not the liver. Go ahead and taken it. Just don’t take Tylenol, you can do serious damage to your liver that way…

    Hi, great post. Aspirin should always be dissolve in water before consumption. It takes a second really.
