Dreaded hangovers

Lawrence says: You don't have to rely on the mercy of the universe in order to find relief from the dreaded hangovers that are caused by too much alcohol consumption. Instead, here are a few things you can try at home as a home remedy for a hangover.

The best home remedy for a hangover is good old H2O. The agents in alcohol tend to deplete the body of fluids; this in turn causes headaches, and weakness. H2O will replenish those fluids. For best results it is recommended that you drink water before, during, and after drinking alcohol. Sports drinks are also a good choice to use as a home remedy for a hangover because they replace lost fluids to the body, and supply electrolytes for energy.

Have your Beam on the rocks and save the Coke to use at home as a remedy for a hangover. The carbonation in these sodas effectively relieves the nausea that is commonly associated with a hangover.

An often overlooked home remedy for a hangover is to eat a meal before bedtime after drinking alcohol. As the body works to digest the meal, it will also digest the alcohol faster than on an empty stomach, which could result in fewer hangover symptoms or at least lessen their severity the next morning.
