The Morning After: Steps To Cure A Hangover

The Morning After: Steps to Cure a Hangover - Male with hangover holding a glass of water

Tired of waking up on Sunday mornings feeling nothing but a throbbing headache and uneasy stomach with a side of regret?

There’s good news: you don’t have to put up with pesky hangovers any longer.

In fact, curing hangovers isn’t as daunting of a task as it can be made out to be. As long as you take the right steps before you go to sleep and right when it starts kicking in the next morning, you can nip your hangover in the bud before it has a chance to ruin the rest of your day.

 

While the following steps are for successfully curing your hangover once it’s too late, the best solution is to prevent hangovers from ever becoming possible.

How is this possible? With the IVITA Detox — the trusted hangover prevention pill and the wingman you never knew you needed. Simply take four capsules toward the end of your night of drinking or before you go to bed to stop a hangover in its tracks before it ever gets a chance to start.

However, if you’re reading this already lying in bed with a growing migraine, and it’s too late for you to depend upon hangover prevention methods, here are our steps to take for the best hangover cure:

Drink Fluids

You likely already know that alcohol makes you dehydrated (the after effect of having to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes). While this step in curing a hangover may seem obvious, it’s crucial to get any liquids you can into your system. Start with water, then make your way up to orange juice, tea, or another form of beverage high in vitamins and nutrients. Coffee will help bring your senses back to life, but it can also dehydrate you further, so drink something alongside it if you’re a person who can’t survive without their morning cup of joe. If you don’t already, you should also start keeping a bottle of water on your nightstand to be able to drink right when you wake up to immediately start treating your growing hangover.

 

Take A Pain Reliever

Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and other variations of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help relieve your headache and body aches. Avoid pain relievers like Tylenol that feature acetaminophen, as these will only will only irritate your stomach and liver that are already busy detoxing the alcohol from your system.

 

Eat Loads Of Carbs

Whether your body is telling you that you’re hungry or not, you need to eat. It may not be fun, but it will make you feel a hundred times better. Whether it’s a full grand slam breakfast, avocado toast, or even just your favorite cereal, start replenishing your body and brain’s fuel as soon as you can. Greasy, carb-filled foods are your best bet, so if you find you have an appetite, take advantage of it and go out and buy yourself a nice hearty breakfast burrito — or regular burrito, depending on what time you finally woke up.

 

Sweat It Out

After you’ve gotten a sufficient amount of needed nutrients back into your body, your energy levels should start to return to a normal amount. Now is the perfect time to break a sweat in order to further rid the remaining toxins of alcohol from your body. While we don’t recommend putting your muscles through too much trial by lifting weights, going for a light run, stretching with yoga, or even taking a hot shower are great ways to get your body sweating out all of the leftover alcohol.

Or Go Back To Sleep

If your hangover is one of the more extreme ones or you woke up before you were able to get a full night’s rest, then there’s nothing wrong with going back to sleep for a while longer. That is, if this isn’t a Wednesday where you have to be at work in an hour. Sleep is imperative to hangover recovery, and now that you are (relatively) sober from completing these other hangover cure steps, you will be able to get a much better quality of sleep than you did before.
