Need a Natural Hangover Remedy...

 


Lady too tired in bed



One too many?

Paying for it?

Fear not!

 

I always suggest indulging 

mindfully and drinking in 

moderation, to avoid a

pounding head and queasiness in the morning, since the only thing proven to cure a

hangover is time (sorry!).  However, even the best of us stray from our

good intentions, so trying one or more of the following natural easy remedies can

speed up putting the spring back in your step. 



According to the Mayo Clinic, there are many factors that contribute to the way you

feel after a night of knocking back spirits. It can cause:

  • Dehydration - dry mouth and lightheadedness. 
  • Blood vessels to expand - headaches or migraines.
  • Increased production of stomach acid - pain, nausea, or vomiting.
  • Not reaching deep stages of sleep and often waking up in the middle of the night - leaving you fatigued and groggy.
  • Weakness, shakiness, anxious, or just plain crabbiness as a result of low blood sugar.

To alleviate symptoms stay away from the hair of the dog or greasy food. In

addition, be weary of the internet's questionable hangover "cures" like magic pills,

and weird IV drips. 
 

Hydrate – It’s important to water up before, during, and after drinking. While out, 

alternate between cocktails and water and drink one large glass of water

before going to bed. Continue to hydrate throughout the next day and mix it up with

coconut water. It contains anti-oxidants, electrolytes, and potassium. These are key 

components of any hangover treatment.

Also try: 

Peppermint & Chamomile tea - ease headaches, indigestion and nausea. Drink

chamomile also for general soothing and relaxation. Green tea is packed with

antioxidants, which keep your body healthy, meaning a healthier liver, which will

help you recover faster. 


Add raw honey for extra benefits. The fructose helps metabolize 
alcohol, plus it

contains potassium, antibacterial properties and is full of enzymes.

Also, cinnamon - Helps regulate blood sugar levels and helps with nausea.

 

Sweat – The thought of leaving your bed to workout with a hangover may be

painful, but, it’s worth it. The Institute of Integrative Nutrition says, " it may not be a

good idea to go for a 10-mile run the morning after drinking, however, exercise

stimulates the lymphatic system, eliminates toxins from your body, gets your blood

flowing, and releases endorphins."

Opt for light exercise, such as yoga, walking, stretching, or spinning!

 

Eat  – Reach for foods that will actually make you feel better. Brassica vegetables

broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts – contain an enzyme that

actually supports liver detox.

While you were feeling jolly lots of potassium drained from your body, so find

potassium packed foods like bananas, avocados, kiwi, spinach, sweet potatoes,

yogurt, and citrus fruits to replenish important nutrients.

Try this superfood smoothie 

with coconut water, bananas,

oats, pumpkin puree, and

spinach to get some pep.

 

Also good options:

Chicken noodle, miso or tomato

soups (more potassium)  — the 

broth rehydrates and restocks sodium levels while the fermented miso can help aid 

digestion

Oatmeal and  Sprouted Grain Toast contain plenty of nutrients and helps to

neutralize acidity in the body. Plus, oats are a complex carbohydrate and keep blood

sugar levels stable.


Try them and see! Comment in the comment box what your remedy is or if you have 

tried these and if they worked for you.

 

Pass this on to someone you care about!
