Natural cures for hangovers

Some of the available treatments for hangovers are the usual Aspirin (acetyl salicylic acid) and a few natural remedies. The most important thing to do  after an alcohol-filled night is to drink. 

Obviously not alcoholic beverages – you need to drink plenty of water in small sips, to avoid overloading your stomach.

A salty broth can also work wonders.

In Germany, rollmops and pickled gherkins are very popular hangover remedies.

Other useful remedies include buttermilk, yoghurt drinks and quark.

Herbal teas for hangovers

Herbal teas can help to relieve a hangover.

They settle the stomach and alleviate headaches.

The most beneficial ones are: mint, ginger, chamomile, Filipendula ulmaria and goat willow.

Essential oils for hangovers

Another hangover cure is to massage a few drops of peppermint oil into the temples and the area between the eyebrows.

You can also take homeopathic pellets for hangover-related nausea.

You would need to take between 3 and 10 pellets of Nux vomica D6 to D12.

If none of the above seems to work, you can always have a lie down and a nap or go for a walk outside.
