Got up to a splitting headache? Here are some cures

Ask a dozen people how to cure a hangover and you’ll get a dozen different answers. Eat greasy grub. Drink coffee. Pop over-the-counter pain relievers. Do any of them work? For now, there’s only one surefire way to avoid a hangover: Don’t drink. What's worse is that it takes rather long for a hangover to go away (between 8-24 hours). So, if you're fed up of the symptoms and are looking for ways to get rid of them, here are some quick cures that will help you out.


02/18Bouillon soup

Bouillon soup

This is a thin vegetable-based broth that is a really good source of minerals and vitamins that can help in topping up the depleted resources. Bouillon soup is also a rather easy idea to cure a hangover the next day as you tend to have a fragile stomach and this soup is easy for digestion.


03/18Eat ginger

Eat ginger

For centuries, people have taken ginger to reduce nausea and vomiting. Try nibbling crystallized ginger in the aftermath of a night of drinking. Even research suggests consuming a combination of ginger, tangerine pith, and brown sugar before drinking decreases nausea and vomiting.


04/18Avoid taking painkillers

Avoid taking painkillers

The morning after you went out drinking, you will feel like your head is pounding from all that hangover and some people tend to reach out for a painkiller thinking it'll make it all better. Well, this isn't the best of the ideas when you're dealing with a hangover. Over-the-Counter (OTC) products like aspirin, ibuprofen and tylenol can have side effects that can worsen your hangover even more.


05/18Opt for kombucha

Opt for kombucha

We know what you're thinking. Kombucha can be off-putting because of its strong taste and smell but there really isn't anything that's quite as effective as it is in curing hangovers. Have at least one glass of kombucha and it will help replenish all the lost nutrients in your body while also hydrating you.


06/18Try some dark chocolate

Try some dark chocolate

Since alcohol causes oxidative stress which leads the body to produce free radicals, it's very important to eat something that has antioxidants. This is why, eating some dark chocolate can benefit you to get rid of the bad hangover.




Getting rehydrated will be even easier if you remember to drink some water before going to bed at the end of your night – but don’t panic if you haven’t managed this. Making sure to take regular sips throughout your morning should still help you to feel better.


08/18Drink up a cola

Drink up a cola

Since alcohol can decrease the production of anti-diuretic hormone that usually helps the body retain water, it is very necessary to increase your water intake. And soda can actually help in alleviating the dehydration that stems from drinking alcohol.


09/18Try chamomile tea for hungover anxiety

Try chamomile tea for hungover anxiety

This tea is very calming for any emotional feeling that drinking alcohol might bring to you. Use this flowering plant to soothe down your anxieties or rather the hungover anxiety. Chamomile can even help you sleep more better and relieve an upset stomach.


10/18Consume Honey

Consume Honey

Honey happens to be packed with antioxidants and potassium both of which can work wonders in fighting a hangover. You can just eat a tablespoon or two of honey or mix it in some warm water to get some fluids into your system. And if you'd like to eat, just spread it on some toast.
