Hangover Cure? 8 Things to Try

Posted by Aaron W. On 12/24/2010
From US News & World

Nope.  Sorry, no sure-fire cure... no matter what grampa says.  But everyone is different, and I've listed what some of the experts (Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic) think will help you the day after.

    LOVE HANGOVER
  1. Drink lots of water.  Alcohol makes you pee. That, and the alcohol, can lead to dehydration, prompting the hallmark dizziness and lightheadedness of a hangover.
  2. Eat, but don't binge. Crackers and toast can boost blood sugar that may have dipped while drinking.  Also consider pretzels and a banana to replace the salt and potassium lost through urinating so much.
  3. Get your body working faster. When alcohol gets into the system it's got to be metabolized. There's no way around it. The fructose in sports drinks, fruit juice and honey may help burn the alcohol more quickly... even exercise.
  4. Retreat under the covers. You may have gotten your usual eight hours, but it was probably interrupted by a few trips to the bathroom and a lot of tossing and turning, decreasing the quality of your snooze.  Think about a nap before the 'events.'
  5. Take a pain reliever but sparingly. They'll likely alleviate a headache, but aspirin can upset an already irritated tummy, and acetaminophen could lead to liver damage.  Don't go over the recommended dose. In fact, try half a dose and see if it works.
  6. Pace yourself. The body can typically metabolize an alcoholic drink—a glass of beer, a one-shot mixed drink—each hour.  Food slows down alcohol absorption and provides a little distraction.
  7. Customize your request. Ask the bartender for a little more orange juice and a little less vodka.
  8. Choose wisely. Darker-colored alcoholic beverages—bourbon, scotch, tequila, brandy, ales—have a greater amount of chemicals called congeners, which are more likely to cause a hangover.
Happy Holidays!!
