Weird Hangover Cure

hangoverAs well as a throbbing headache and nausea your liver is also suffering if you have imbibed too much alcohol. A glass of warm water with the juice of half a lemon will help to detoxify the liver.  Drink this and lie in a darkened room for half an hour.  Then drink a cup of an herbal infusion make of peppermint, lime flowers, lavender, and rosemary, which should provide further relief. Eat banana and drink as much water as possible. A couple of drops of lavender essential oil rubbed on the temples will help the headache, and if it is really bad, try a cold compress with lavender.  Other than abstinence the best cure is prevention. Take 1 gram of vitamin C and drink a pint of water before going to bed after a night out and this should make the hangover much less severe.
