Hangover Cure : this one’s a doozy

20120818-134919.jpg

Today i will not be sharing any sort of magical, secret remedy. No pill, drink or food. Nope, I’m too hungover, so Instead we will discuss Sleep. Because sleep is exactly what I am doing.

If you are hungover you should save yourself the pain, and others the sight by just staying in bed. Rest is your best friend at this point to give your body a chance to recover. So take advantage of this day.

If you work, call in sick. You sound like shit so they will believe you. And technically you are in fact sick, so it’s not like you’re lying. That’s called cheating the system.

Get up only to pee, drink water, or get yourself a puke bucket. Do everything you can in bed. Eat, drink, watch tv, give yourself a baby wipe shower. Just don’t get up. You have committed yourself, and you my friend are no quitter. Are bed pans still a legitimate means of urine disposal?

If you have a personal butler at your disposal use this to your full advantage today. Have him bring you magical hangover food every two hours until it stays down. If you do not have this luxury, stockpile the right side of your bed with essential hangover food items. I recommend almond butter, dates, cashews, olives, cookies, crackers, pita bread and your favorite dip. Pick at this smorgasbord of finger foods all day. Don’t be ashamed. Can any of your friends brag about their bed Picnic? Nope.

You’re welcome.


Hangover Cure : Sushi Edition

Soak in Wasabi To Stimulate Detoxification… until next weekend.

Did you know that  as much as a third of toxic body waste is cleared through the skin. That is why, no matter how often you brush your teeth after a night out your boss will still smell that booze off you.

Now, doesn’t it suddenly make complete sense to soak in a tub of toxin-purging wasabi? Don’t dismiss the hot stuff as a mere smear on your sushi! Turns out that at the root of this go-to miracle tonic’s power, wasabi (which is actually a member of the cabbage family) has the ability to increase blood circulation through the organs and promote oxygenation of the cellular tissue, helping to clear cells of metabolic waste. When infused into the bath, wasabi’s stimulating nature has been known to help ease a hangover. Food really is incredible isn’t it?

I’ve used the Body Systems Bath Treatment, but then decided to make it myself by combining ginger for nausea & indigestion, mustard for increased circulation, stimulating sweat glands, & opening pores, epsom salts for relieving aching muscles and internal re-balancing, and peppermint oil to loosen phlegm, sooth nerves, and stimulating pain relief. I mix all ingredients together and sit in my tub. What else are you going to hungover?


Hangover Cure (Birthday Edition): Ginger Tea

Last night I celebrated by birthday. So naturally, today I felt like the biggest bag of shit ever to walk on this green earth of ours. I’m talkin’ like nausea, headache, dizzy spells of dance and shot-induced full on, kill me now, hang ovaaaaaa. I decided to drag my ass to the kitchen and make me a cup of this bad boy… mainly to prevent me from vomiting on my pink slippers…

4-6 thin slices raw ginger

1 1/2 – 2 cups water

juice from 1/2 lime, or to taste

1-2 tbsp agave nectar, or maple syrup

Peel the ginger and slice thinly to maximize the surface area. This will help you make a very flavorful ginger tea. Boil the ginger in water for at least 10 minutes. For a stronger and tangier tea, allow to boil for 20 minutes or more. Remove from heat and add lime juice and agave nectar to taste.

The ginger will soothes your stomach, and the natural sugar from the lemon and agave nectar will raise your blood sugar level back to where it should be. Happy Hang-overing!


Last Night’s Fun is This Morning’s Nightmare.

1 drink, 2 drink 3 drink floor? We have all been there, and we have all sworn that we wouldn’t do it again. We are all liars. 

Whether you simply under-estimated the potency of that extra glass of wine, or you consciously made the decision to drink till you drop, now you are paying the price. If you would rather lay in the fetal position then face the sunshine. Or, find yourself cursing the sound of happy children in the street, then you have found yourself the right blog.

Alcohol is a poison, and the hangover is your body reacting and trying to get rid of the toxins that you single-handedly jagerbombed your body with. It really is that simple

How do you prevent a hangover? Obviously by not drinking you Boozehound! But since this is not likely to happen, here is some friendly advice from your local party animal.

Eat & Drink This!

Bananas- Just peel and eat. The minute you broke the seal, the potassium levels in your body have been diminishing.

Coconut Water– Nature’s sport drink! Replenish your fluids, sugar levels and electrolytes with this magical elixir.

Water- Duh, like I should even have to write this. But I understand that your brain is swimming in a glass of last nights beer, so I will elaborate. When you drink, you piss like a racehorse and end up dehydrated. So drink water and drink tons.Your body does not function correctly when you are dehydrated.

Ginger Tea- If you can handle standing for long enough this tea works wonders for nausea and an upset tummy.  Cut slices of ginger root and combine with water. Boil for ten minutes, strain and add citrus juice like orange or lemon. Sweeten with honey and slam it back.

Do This!


Half Lord of the Fishes Pose- Don’t look at me like that. Yes, I am telling you do a yoga pose. This pose is the perfect post-party liver flush, and you do it sitting, you’re welcome.

  • Sit on the floor with your legs extended straight in front of you.
  • Bend your left knee and cross your leg over your right, placing your left foot on the floor beside the outside of your right knee.
  • Rotate your torso to the left so you are twisting your body.
  • Bring your right arm across your body and place your right hand on the floor beside your left butt cheek. This will act like a kickstand.
  • Inhale big belly breaths. Hold the pose for 30 seconds. Switch sides. Go back to bed.
