Okay, I know that I should no longer be getting hangovers. I mean, I was trained at a top university on how to party and make it to class the next day. But, being that I'm flyrish, half of me probably has an allergic reaction to alcohol. When the occasional hangover hits, I need a fast remedy. Since the warmer days of summer are soon upon us, a time often filled with boozy barbeques and day-into-night graduation parties, now is a good time to share a few methods I've used to get my body back in working order.
- VitaminWater (this stuff is glorious because it contains electrolytes, vitamins B & C among others, and it tastes good-- unlike hurl-inducing Gatorade)
- Bananas (once you're up to eating, a banana replenishes lost potassium and other nutrients and the natural sugar helps somehow as well)
- Greasy food (this is an old school remedy that may have no actual merit, but I know that a grilled cheese and fries makes the world a better place on my day after)
- Herbs (ask Mary about this one)
- Sleep ('nuff said)
Please feel free to share any tips you may have. Has anyone ever tried one of those hangover cure pills?
