Best 5 Hangover Remedies

Tips and tricks to kick those nasty symptoms after a long night of drinking

Headache. Nausea. Cottonmouth. An achy, uncomfortable and just yucky sensation. What are these symptoms of? If you have to ask, then you’ve never had the dreaded hangover before.

It can be difficult to avoid a hangover after a long night of drinking once your head has already hit the pillow for the night. But can you prevent a hangover before it happens? And can you remedy it once you’ve woken up the next day? Fortunately I have a few tips that work for both. They may not be scientifically proven, but they have worked wonders on many a hungover person, and I hope they do the same for you.

The first fact to know before getting into detail about how to deal with a hangover is to know exactly what causes one. According to the Mayo Clinic, a hangover is the body’s reaction to alcohol, shown in several different ways. Alcohol causes your blood vessels to expand, which can cause that pounding headache. Alcohol also causes your body to produce more urine, which causes you to urinate more than usual, which can lead to dehydration, nausea, lightheadedness and dizziness. Alcohol also makes you sleepy, but will not necessarily lead to a good night sleep, leaving you feeling groggy and fatigued in the morning.
