Home Remedies for Hangovers: Hangovers be Gone!

Updated on May 26, 2011

Hangovers Be Gone!

Taking that third, fourth, fifth shot of vodka can seem like a good idea at the time, but then you wake up the next morning regretting every drink. Luckily, there are some home remedies you can use to make the day after just a little more bearable.

Before you go out drinking, drink a nice tall glass of milk with two Advil. Repeat this ritual the following morning, one glass of milk and two Advil. The milk helps digest the alcohol and the Advil helps with the symptoms.

Drink lots of water. Although this seems like common sense, many people don’t realize that alcohol can cause dehydration. Several of the symptoms you experience with a hangover are actually from dehydration. While you are out drinking, try to drink as much water as you do alcohol. Once home, make sure that you drink several glasses of water before you go to bed. Also make sure to drink lots of water the following morning.

Vitamin C tablets are a must for taking care of hangovers. Vitamin C helps break down the content of alcohol while it is in your body.

If you have nausea the following morning, eat breakfast with a glass of tomato juice. There is just something about tomato juice that soothes the stomach and sends nausea packing. Also, eat a banana with your breakfast to take care of an upset stomach.

Never go out drinking on an empty stomach. Be sure to have a meal before you leave and, if you can, eat while you drink. The food will absorb some of the alcohol and help your body digest the alcohol faster. Starchy foods are great to eat while drinking because they slow down alcohol absorption.

Develop a system that works best for you by using some of these home remedies. Some find it effective to have a “drinking kit” that they take with them when they go drinking: a baggy full of Vitamin C pills and Advil, a water bottle that can be refilled throughout the night, and a snack to eat while drinking such as a granola bar.
