Sleep is the best hangover cure. It's easy, effortless and who doesn't love sleep? Your body needs an opportunity to recover. So either you can rest yourself on bed or take a good sleep of 3-4 hours. If you want to sleep more, good for you. Also build some energy and take a cool shower before settling in for sleep. Getting the smell of alcohol off your body can help you to sleep more comfortably and reduce your need to vomit.
#Water, your best friend !
Water should be your best friend during a hangover. It's important to stay hydrated while drinking alcohol meaning you need to sip some water in between those cocktails. Water is the first thing you should be drinking in the morning. You can also substitute water with any juices of your choice. Juices helps you in providing the necessary vitamins your body requires. Dehydration and vomiting requires drinking plenty of liquids. There is research showing that coconut water makes it easier to consume than plain water or juices. Coconut water is high in electrolytes, including potassium, which your body sorely needs after overindulging in alcoholic beverages. The coconut water probably helps to settle an acidic stomach. It has loads of electrolytes and vitamins to restore what was lost the previous night.
#Eat Something !!
Food is the last thing on your mind but you need to get something in that empty stomach of yours. Tuck into a nourishing breakfast which helps to replace all those minerals and vitamins lost during the alcohol indulgence. Start with basic toast with some scrambled eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein and helps you rebuild your energy and stabilize blood sugar. You can also opt for bananas or some fruit of your choice or a simple bowl of oats and honey breakfast. But do eat something.
#Avoid Painkillers if possible.
Avoid aspirin or ibuprofen. You may think they will solve the problem of the huge hangover headache but they will only make you feel worst. The painkillers have some side effects which react while alcohol is in your system.

Just like alcohol, aspirin is a blood thinner and the two in combination can intensify the effects. It can cause more damage to your liver and ibuprofen can also cause stomach bleeding. So avoid as much as possible. Indian solution - apply Vicks VapoRub or Tiger balm to your forehead and sleep it off. Your headache will be in much better position.
#Ginger bite !
For those with a wicked hangover, a ginger tea may do the trick. Recently, ginger has been found to pack just the right amount of vitamins and minerals to help treat the occasional hangover. It also helps improve the immune system by fighting off fatty deposits that may appear in the arteries and helps combat a bad cough or throat irritation. Alcohol lowers your body’s ability to fight off sickness, which is why feeding it the nutrients it needs to boost immune system performance can make a difference in recovery. Chewing 2-3 small pieces of ginger or taking a cup of ginger tea lends fast relief. In addition,you can add some lemon juice and honey to it.
#Added Do's and Don'ts
- Avoid sweet and sugary foods after or while you drink. Sugar makes it difficult for the drinker to realize how much alcohol is going into his system. Also sugar makes the drink hit you harder.
- Never drink on an empty stomach. Always have some small bite foods before your alcohol indulgence. Like some cheese, biscuits, etc.
- A small cup of coffee may be okay, but not more than that. It will only dehydrate you more and it may make your headache worse.
- The worst thing you can do after a hangover is to continue drinking. It's called "The hair on the dog." If you drink more after the hangover, it will further damage the condition of your liver and may continuing causing more dehydration and nausea.
- You need to get some exercise. Now initially this will be a task but it will help you restore you body and mind. You don't need to go to the gym for that. A short and relaxed walk in the fresh air will do wonders. Try it.
So we hope the next time you greet your enemy "Hangover", you will at least try one of these remedies and beat the him asap !
