Hangover Cures Courtesy of Your Friendly Neighbor Betch
We’ve all had them, those hangovers so epic you’re essentially debilitated the entire day after a rough night out. I personally have hangovers so bad that Sophmore year in college I had appendicitis…and thought it was just a hangover. Obviously you can avoid all of this by not drinking in the first place, but here’s a few products and tips to help you out once the deed is already done. Feel free to thank us next time your hours curled up in the fetal position after a night spent with Jack Daniels or Jose Cuervo isn’t nearly as numerous.
1. For the headache: Stick to anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen, and avoid acetaminophen (Tylenol). Your liver will already be working overtime processing alcohol so Tylenol use can overwhelm it and cause liver damage.
2. Blowfish: Take it the morning of your hangover. I went through a full box of these recently and came to really like them. They’re effervescent tablets that contain mostly caffeine and aspirin. While doctors tend to suggest against caffeine because it can cause dehydration, I find that the giant glass of water I mix this into negates that. The bubbles settle my stomach, and the aspirin and caffeine help me feel less like an extra on the set of The Walking Dead.
3. Physical activity: Now this obviously is out of the question if you are ‘can’t stand up without almost puking’status hungover. However for those middle range hangovers a little light cardio can work wonders. It gets your heart rate and metabolism up, and the endorphins released during exercise can help abate those overall feelings of awfulness. So whether it’s a brisk walk or jog, Citi biking to your nearest deli to stock up on beverages and a greasy bacon, egg and cheese, if you can get moving, your hangover will be over significantly sooner.
4. The IV Doctor: www.theivdoc.com – 24/7 concierge IV drips formulated specifically for your hangover needs. This is something I’ve been dying to try. My biggest problem in the hangover symptom realm is that I get extremely nauseous, so often I can’t keep down the things that could actually help my hangover. With an IV, you bypass this problem. This new trend has been building momentum on blogs, celebrity Instagrams, and in the news. Some people say it’s a miracle cure, others say it’s overkill. You can schedule appointments in NYC, Long Island and the Hamptons, and receive the treatment anywhere, and at your convenience. This is the priciest option, with IV drips starting at $199, but if you’re looking for the Rolls Royce of hangover cure options this just may be it.
