Hangover Home Remedies


There are many ways to prevent a hangover. The number one way to prevent a hangover is not drinking so much or spreading out your drinks over a longer period of time. Drinking water also helps, as does drinking on a full stomach. But sometimes, despite our best efforts (or any effort), a night of partying can end in a pounding headache, upset stomach, and dizziness.

The best cure for a hangover is time, but if you don’t want to suffer, here are some hangover home remedies that can help:

1.) Bananas: One of the best hangover home remedies is bananas. They are full of potassium, which is something your body needs after a night of drinking. It’s also good to get something in your stomach when you have a hangover, to help with sour stomach.

2.) Ginger ale: Ginger is a great hangover home remedy because it treats nausea. The carbonation in ginger ale will also help settle your stomach.

3.) Peppermint or chamomile tea: These teas are natural antacids so they make good hangover home remedies. For extra relief, use honey instead of sugar to sweeten the tea. Honey contains fructose, which competes with the metabolism of alcohol. This helps a hangover, because the quick metabolism of alcohol is what causes many hangover symptoms.

4.) Water, Juice, or Sports Drinks: Many hangover symptoms are caused by dehydration. You’re body loses a lot of fluids and other nutrients during a night of drinking. Drinking a lot of water, juice, or other sports drinks can help you replenish some of what you lost. Steer clear of acidic juices, like orange, as acidic juices can sometimes exacerbate a sour stomach. Sports drinks can help replenish electrolytes, as well as hydrating your body.

5.) Toast or Rice: Toast and rice are classic hangover home remedies. Food is often the last thing you want to consider when recovering from a wicked hangover, but having something on your stomach can help settle it and give you more energy. Rice and toast are simple and easy to ingest.

6.) Ice: Putting an icepack on your aching head can help with a wicked hangover. If you don’t have an icepack, a package of frozen vegetables works too. Or just rinse a washcloth in cold water and apply it to your forehead.

7.) Multivitamin: When you drink, you lose a lot of key nutrients, including B vitamins. Sometimes taking a multivitamin can help shorten the hangover.

8.) Pepto-Bismol: Pepto-Bismol is a great hangover home remedy because it can help with so many different stomach ailments that can be caused by excess drinking including: sour stomach, nausea, and diarrhea.

9.) Sleep: Sleep, aside from hydrating yourself, is a must in hangover home remedies. Rest is your best friend when you have a hangover. It gives your body a chance to recover and to regain energy. If you can, take a couple hours out of the day to nap when you have a hangover, or be sure to get to bed extra early the next night.

10.) Raw cabbage: Last, but not least on our list of hangover home remedies is raw cabbage. If you can stomach it, chewing on a piece of raw cabbage can cure a pounding headache.

Hangover Bus

Have you ever woken up on your hotel room floor with a pounding headache and no memory of how you got there? Partied too hard on the first night of vacation and were too hung-over to go out again the next night? If you’re in Vegas, you’re in luck!

The newest Las Vegas tourist attraction promises a quick cure for a hangover, and the cure comes to you! A bus called Hangover Heaven is picking up clients up and down the Vegas strip and treating them for hangovers. For a fee, medical professionals will get you back on your feet after a night of hard partying. The retrofitted bus comes equipped with IV fluids, flat screen TV’s, mirrored ceilings, and nurses in…well…suggestive nurse outfits.

The hangover bus is the brainchild of board certified anesthesiologist Dr. Jason Burke. He insists that the hangover bus does not promote drinking; it merely brings some relief to tourists who overdo it in Sin City. He calls the new business a medical practice on wheels, like a mobile walk-in clinic that only treats one very specific ailment.

If you need the hangover bus, you simply give them a call, and they will pick you up within the hour. Once on the bus, the treatment takes less than an hour. For a $90 fee, you get the basic package, which includes one IV bag containing fluids, vitamins, the anti-nausea drug Ondansetron, and the anti-inflammatory drug Ketorolac. A premium package starts at $150, which gets you two bags. For an additional fee, medical personnel from the bus will treat you in your hotel room.

Critics question whether the hangover bus treatment is safe. They point out that some of these drugs have side effects, and the hangover bus may not be equipped to handle a bad reaction. A patient could be allergic to the medications or fail to report their entire medical history. Ketorolac can affect the kidneys, and Ondansetron can trigger abnormal heart rhythm. There could also be complications for people with esophageal or stomach ailments from chronic alcohol abuse.

Others question the wisdom of a “quick cure” for a hangover. Hangovers are nature’s way of telling you to slow down. Without the physical consequences, people may be tempted to over-drink. To some, offering a quick hangover cure is a violation of medical ethics.

Burke claims he doesn’t treat anyone who is visibly intoxicated or who has a complicated medical history. He believes these safeguards will keep the risk of complications low. He also says that he uses small amounts of the drugs and takes a full medical history before treatment. Burk also points out that they are equipped with a hospital “crash cart” and he is fully qualified to use it in case of emergency.

Hangover Heaven claims that the hangover bus treatment has a 95% success rate in returning patients to normal in 45 minutes.  In the short time that the hangover bus has been open for business, its popularity has skyrocketed. At this rate, it won’t be long until Hangover Heaven becomes the new Sin City hot spot!
