You had a few too many last night, and you’re paying for it now. Your head is pounding, your throat is dry, your stomach is queasy, and you barely have enough energy to crawl out of bed. What’s worse, you have a big date, wedding, conference, or meeting later today, so you need a hangover cure—quick.We’ve got you covered. Here are 5 hangover cures that’ll get you feeling hydrated, feeling healthy, and back on your feet in no time.
1. Mobile IV Therapy
Mobile IV therapy is one of the easiest and fastest ways to cure a hangover with minimal effort on your part.Just book an appointment online and an experienced nurse will be at your door to administer an IV drip chock-full of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and fluids in no time. Because the intravenous route skips the metabolic and digestive systems (unlike oral medications), the nutrients are delivered directly to your bloodstream for 100% absorption.Drinking alcohol makes you pretty dehydrated, so an IV might be just what you need to get rid of that headache and that hangover. The IV drip will also replace some of the vitamins and minerals you lost while drinking. It can improve the nausea you’re feeling and boost your low energy, too.Bonus: you don’t have to leave the house to feel better!
2. Eat Breakfast
You might not feel like eating, but it can do wonders to put you on the road to recovery. Not every food is created equal for a hangover, though. Try a fry-up full breakfast with eggs, toast, bacon, and sausage, which can replace fatty acids and help break down alcohol in the liver. Eggs also contain taurine, which can help reverse the damage alcohol can do to your liver. Too queasy to even contemplate a fry-up? A safer option might be a mild-flavored carbohydrate, like wholemeal crackers or toast, which won’t upset your stomach. The carbs will boost your blood sugar and increase your energy.
3. Choose the Right Drinks
Skip the coffee and go with water, tea, fruit juice, or Powerade or Gatorade the morning after. Water will hydrate you, sports drinks are full of electrolytes, and fruit juice will replace some essential minerals you lost while giving you a sugar kick. Thistle tea is known to be good for hangovers, while ginger tea is good for that upset stomach. You can also try non-alcohol ginger beer or ginger ale that contains real ginger to reduce your nausea.
4. Sweat Off the Hangover
Ok, ok, you might not be feeling up to a long run or bike ride, but if you’re really committed to getting rid of your hangover, exercise is a great cure. It increases oxygen flow to the brain, boosts your mood hormones, and increases your energy, while also clearing out toxins. Take it easy though—choose a low- to moderate-intensity exercise.
5. Sleep It Off
Alcohol can disrupt your sleep cycle, so you probably feel really tired right now. If all else fails, go back to sleep for a few hours to give your body time to rest and recover. That big date can wait.
