Hangover Remedies

OK, it's the next morning and you have a terrible hangover. What can you do to get rid of it? Some hangover remedies are free! There are certain things you can do to reduce the length and severity of your hangover, but there are no instant hangover remedies. You'll still have to suffer for a while before your hangover is completely gone.

  • Drink (non-alcoholic) liquids. Fruit juice or water are great hangover remedies. You may have to drink a small amount at a time to keep it down. The more liquid you can get (and keep) in your body, the faster you'll start to feel better. Note: Stay away from coffee. Like alcohol, coffee is a diuretic and causes your body to lose precious water. When you have a hangover, coffee is not a remedy. It will only make things worse.

  • Eat something. As with the water, you may have to eat small amounts at a time to keep it from coming back up. Eating will help get your vitamins, minerals, and blood sugar back to normal levels. Eating bread will also help to dilute the nasty stuff that's eating away at your stomach. Some people swear that greasy foods like french fries or scrambled eggs and bacon are a great hangover remedies.

  • Go back to bed. Your body needs rest to recover from what you've put it through. Chances are you stayed up late earning your hangover. You'll cure your hangover faster if you get some rest. Sometimes time and sleep are the best hangover remedies. Wouldn't you rather sleep through your pounding headache and upset stomach than be awake through every minute of agony while your body cures itself?
