Here, you will come across some genuine hangover cures that work and can easily be tried out at home.
A cure for a hangover is desperately needed when you have had too much of alcohol and your head starts acting all weird and abnormal. Hangover cures that work effectively can be very difficult to implement due to the splitting headache that you tend to suffer from.
There are several remedies, natural and man-made, that would help you to get over the hang over. Before that, let us get to know what are hangovers, and why do they occur.


A hangover is often defined as a group of psychological and physical effects that occur as a result of heavy consumption of alcohol.
Some of the common effects or symptoms are as follows:
  • Splitting Headache
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy
  • Thirst
  • Sensitivity to Light
  • Frustration and Short Temper
  • Noise intolerance
  • Irritability and insecurity
  • High body temperature
  • Hypersalivatin
One of the most commonly observed symptoms is that, the person gets repelled at the thought, smell, and also the sight of alcohol. The words 'I shall never drink again' or 'I hate alcohol' are always pronounced by the person. Ironically enough, most people who say this end up relishing a beer or an alcoholic beverage at the first possible opportunity.


The ethanol that is present in the alcoholic beverage causes significant dehydration in the body, which results in a frequent and increased levels of urination. This increased urination tends to reduce down the normal volume of fluids in the brain.
Another very significant effect of over consumption of alcohol in the body is that the digested organic and carbon compounds that are present in the body tend to apply pressure on the digestive system, especially the liver. Alcoholic metabolism has varied effects on each person's body. Hence, at times, the symptoms differ form person to person.
#1. Nausea is a common symptom that is observed on the next day, or a few hours after the consumption of alcohol. One of the best ways to keep the digestive system on track and prevent nausea and vomiting, is by drinking the juice of passion fruit the next morning itself.
The best advantage of consuming the natural juice, is that being citrus in nature, the juice (or even raw fruits) tends to contain a huge amount of fructose. The fructose actually helps the digestive and respiratory system to burn up the toxic alcohol. The fructose also tends to activate the digestive system and aids in bowel movement.
#2. Food intake plays an instrumental role in diluting the effect of a hangover. Eating eggs is one of the best ways. Albumin, a natural egg protein, works wonders, as it acts as a catalyst in replenishing the percentage of water in the dehydrated cells of the body.
#3. Most of us resort to man-made remedies. Vomiting and headaches, on the other hand, are naturally curable, if you are ready to eat, try bark. Yes! that's right, you did not hear us wrong, the word is willow bark. It is an excellent natural remedy that tends to be very helpful in relieving pain, due to the good natural content of aspirin in it.
#4. We would personally recommend that you resort to the universal solvent in order to come back to a state of normalcy - water. 
Drink plenty of water and also replenish the amount water after you visit the washroom. The biggest advantage of this is that not only does the body get the desired water content, but all the toxic matter also gets flushed out of the body through the urinary track.
Other hangover remedies that are related to water include sports drinks, all types of juices, and also simple mineral water. It is also helpful for you to take a nice shower. Start off with regular warm water, and then, gradually move onto cold water.
While drinking, it is exceptionally important to bear in mind that, if you drink in excess, you will end up having a very bad hang over, and you will also end up damaging your body considerably. A very difficult and painful process of getting over a hangover is to induce vomiting in order expel the toxic matter. However, we would really recommend against it.
