7 Ways to Remedy a Killer Hangover

After indulging in one too many cocktails, the next day is often miserable. With symptoms such as nausea, headaches, muscle aches, fatigue, a hangover makes you feel awful and ruins any plans you might have had. 

Skip the turmoil of feeling sick after drinking and try these 7 ways to remedy a killer hangover instead. 

1. Pair Carbohydrates and Protein

Interestingly enough, your blood sugar levels drop after a night of heavy drinking. Low blood sugar levels combined with dehydration cause most of the worst hangover symptoms like headache, nausea, and fatigue. 

To bring those blood sugars up, get some carbohydrates in your system as soon as possible. However, for a longer-lasting effect, pair those carbs with a protein source otherwise, your body will process it too quickly and you’ll be back at square one. Burgers, eggs and homefries, peanut butter toast, and deli sandwiches are all excellent options. 

For the dehydration aspect, the next remedy on the list will get you taken care of. 

2. Mobile IV Therapy

7 Ways to Remedy a Killer Hangover Unfortunately, Las Vegas is a place you can get a truly next-level hangover. When you feel like you are dying inside, any plans come to a halt. It can take hours or days to nurse yourself back to health with sports drinks, anti-inflammatories, and junk food. Mobile IV therapy saves the day. 

“IV hydration has the power to cure a true Sin City hangover in under an hour. We’ve been able to save dozens of weddings, girl’s trips, bachelor parties, and more with our unique IV hydration formulations.” –Vanessa Cabrera of Las Vegas Mobile IV Therapy

With IV therapy, you can get intravenous hydration, electrolyte replacement, nausea medication, anti-inflammatories, and a big boost of vitamins all in one solution. A licensed, trained professional comes to you (there’s no way you’re leaving the bed anyways), gives you a quick poke, and gives you the perfect elixir to have you good as new in about an hour. 

You get to carry on with your celebrations or plans like the worst hangover of your life never happened. Find a mobile IV therapy company near you so you can be prepared for when a brutal hangover strikes. 

3. Get More Sleep

7 Ways to Remedy a Killer Hangover Alcohol disrupts our sleep cycles. So, even if you have slept for a full eight hours, you likely weren’t getting quality sleep. You would be surprised how much a couple of extra hours of sleep can help remedy a hangover. After all, sleep is when our bodies go through various repair processes so you want to give it as much time as possible to revive you from the inside out. 

4. Take an Anti-Inflammatory

Unfortunately, alcohol causes high levels of inflammation in the body. Not to mention lack of sleep, dehydration, long hours on your feet, and all of the other things that come with drinking all cause inflammation, too. This is why you get bloated, feel like you’ve been hit by a truck, and have all kinds of aches. 

To feel a little better, take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen. However, stay away from Tylenol or acetaminophen as it is processed by the liver just like alcohol and can cause liver damage when taken together.

5. Have Another Drink

7 Ways to Remedy a Killer Hangover Ever heard of the expression, ‘hair of the dog’? This old-school expression for a hangover cure refers to having another drink to ease hangover symptoms. Though alcohol is probably the last thing you want to think about when you are hungover, in some cases, it really does help. 

Sometimes hangover symptoms are actually the symptoms of withdrawal since alcohol affects multiple receptors in the brain. By having a mimosa, bloody mary, or a light beer, you give those receptors a dose of what they are missing which relieves the hangover symptoms you are experiencing. 

We’ll warn you now, it doesn’t work for everyone and if it doesn’t work, it can make you feel worse. 

6. Refresh With A Hot Bath or Shower

A hot bath or shower can go a long way in remedying a hangover. The heat can relax the muscles and it also offers a mental reset to feel clean. Consider using goat soap milk when taking a hot bath or shower while hungover. 

Your skin is one of your immune system barriers so when it is damaged, such as when it’s too dry, it can be easier to pick up illnesses. Alcohol also hinders your immune system overall and is very drying. Goat soap milk repairs your skin barrier with intense moisture and proteins so that your defenses aren’t as vulnerable. 

7. Ginger Hard Candy

Nausea can be one of the worst parts of a hangover. However, ginger hard candy is a trick used by chronically ill individuals to relieve nausea. It works fantastic for hangover-induced nausea, too because you don’t have to actually ingest anything and the ginger works wonders for calming sensitive stomachs. If you can’t manage to eat any food, start with ginger hard candy and then try again.
