How To Deal With A Hangover

VideoJug shows you how to best deal with a hangover by providing you with the best hangover cure video ever! Be prepared for your next drinking session and save yourself the next day by learning this hangover cure now.

Step 1: You will need

  • fresh air
  • ice pack or frozen peas.

Step 2: Drink water

Dehydration is one of the main symptoms of a hangover, so replenishing the body's water supply is a good idea. Try adding 1 teaspoon of salt per liter and 4-5 teaspoons of sugar per liter. Sip this slowly
Alternatively, use non-caffeinated or non-carbonated sports drinks.

Step 3: Eat a banana

Eating generally is a good idea in order to replace lost electrolytes, but bananas also replenish the potassium lost on all those trips to the toilet during a heavy night's drinking.

Step 4: Get some air

Try speeding up that metabolic rate with a bit of exercise. It'll increase the speed with which your body breaks down the alcohol.

Step 5: Try a Cold Compress

There are two ways of making a cold compress; one using a pad, the other an ice pack.
To make a cold pad use a towel or cloth that has been dipped in very cold water, wrung out and folded into a pad.
To keep the compress cool dip it in the water every few minutes and repeat the same process. This should be done for at least 10 minutes.
Alternatively you can use an ice pack or a sealed packed of frozen peas.
Don't use the ice pack for more than 10 minutes.

Step 6: Drink fruit juice

Fruit juice is also a good idea because it is high in vitamins and nutrients that were depleted by the diuretic effect of the alcohol.

Remember, there's no silver bullet for a hangover but drinking less in the first place definitely helps!
