Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year are just a few of the many occasions that give you an excuse to drink a little more than you should. And then, the hangover is upon you. Are there really any good cures out there? Well, it turns out there are a bunch of methods worth trying.</p> <h3>First, the tried and tested ones</h3> <p><b>Drink plenty of water.</b> That means drinking high-quality H2O before, during and after the event. My general rule is one glass of water for every drink, and then chug a glass or two before bed and again when you wake up. Alcohol dehydrates you which causes a lot of the hangover pains. Water is a great way to combat those effects. And if you want to up the ante, try a drink packed with electrolytes, like Powerade, Gatorade, and so on.</p> <p><b>Hit up the eggs.</b> Our bodies often crave things like eggs after we've been drinking. Mine usually comes fried with bacon, but why eggs? Well, the magic word here is &quot;albumin.&quot; It's a protein in eggs that helps to rehydrate cells (the same ones you dehydrated the night before). You can even chug them raw, if you can stomach them in your delicate state.</p> <p><b>Get fruity.</b> Fruits are full of fructose, which helps you get the alcohol out of your system faster. Vitamin C is also packed into most fruits, and that needs to be replenished after your night on the town. Whether it's a fruit smoothie, tomato juice, orange juice, persimmon, or anything else fruity, get them down you. Also, try additional vitamin C pills to boost your levels. This will stimulate your liver to break down the alcohol.</p> <p><b>Drugs work.</b> Ibuprofen. Alka-Seltzer. Pepto-Bismol. Resolve (that's from the UK). I've tried them all and they ALL helped. You're in pain, and pain relievers will help to dull that pain. Combined with the tips above, they'll work wonders. You can also try Tiger Balm, clove oil or any other cooling medication on your head, the back of your neck, and your temples. This should provide some relief.</p> <p><b>Hair of the dog.</b> You know the expression. Why does it work? Well, some say that a hangover is caused by alcohol withdrawal, which is alleviated by more booze. Others say it has to do with the effects of methanol metabolism. Either way, it's a very good way to beat the hangover, but it obviously has major drawbacks. Good for a Sunday at home, not so good for a Monday morning in the office. Unless, of course, you have a very liberal alcohol policy.</p> <p><b>Coffee really is your friend.</b> You see it all the time in movies and on TV. Someone has a hangover, they reach for the coffee pot. Well, it's not just good for making you a little more alert. The caffeine present in your cup of joe acts as a vasoconstrictor. This helps to shrink those dilated blood vessels that are causing your headache. Apparently, anyway.</p> <h3>Now, some more unusual cures</h3> <p><b>Try a little willow bark or feverfew.</b> Pop down to your local vitamin store and pick up one of mother nature's best pain relievers. Willow bark has a natural form of aspirin in it that will help fight off those headaches. Feverfew has the same qualities. And they're both completely natural, if that's something you want from your medication.</p> <p><b>Bouillon and some hot water.</b> The Brits have no problem drinking weak gravy (Oxo cube + hot water) and yet it can be more than a tasty beverage. All that salt and potassium that left your body via the toilet needs to be replaced, and bouillon contains a bunch.</p> <p><b>Take Niacin for better blood flow.</b> You've no doubt seen that word on cereal boxes and other foods. One of Niacin's properties is the dilation of your blood vessels. That increase in blood flow allows toxins to removed from your cells more quickly, speeding up the whole detoxification process. Niacin is available from most pharmacies and vitamin stores.</p> <p><b>Go crackers with honey.</b> Honey is another one of those high fructose ingredients that helps your body get rid of the alcohol faster. So pour some on a cracker or two and put that hangover in its place.</p> <p><b>And why not go bananas at the same time?</b> Instead of the crackers, mix bananas with honey and milk and make a hangover-busting milkshake. The banana helps to calm the stomach, as does the milk. The honey and banana both contain natural sugars to restore your blood sugar levels back to normal. The milk also rehydrates you. And best of all, bananas are rich in electrolytes, magnesium and potassium, which are killed by heavy drinking.</p> <p><b>Charcoal ain't just for grillin'.</b> More prevention than cure, take a tablet of activated charcoal for each alcoholic drink you have. Charcoal absorbs all sorts of impurities in the alcohol (water filters are made of them) and these are known to cause some of the issues associated with a hangover. But don't overdo it, as charcoal can also absorb nutrients, too.</p> <p><b>Ginger or peppermint for the inevitable stomach upset.</b> It's not just your head that hurts after painting the town red. Ginger is a natural and effective remedy for stomachs that are really feeling the effects of one too many. Make sure you're getting a good amount of real ginger, though. Capsules are reliable; a can of ginger ale usually isn't &mdash; that's just ginger flavor. Peppermint is also a great natural aid for indigestion and stomach problems, but chew actual leaves, not minty gum. Real peppermint tea is a good solution if you can't find real leaves in your local store.</p> <p><b>Replace your amino acids.</b> Alcohol deprives your body of essential amino acids. These are the building blocks of protein, so replace them with a meal that contains beef, chicken, fish or soy. You can also buy amino acid supplements if you just can't face food.</p> <p><b>Lemon-aid (or lime-aid).</b> Lemons and limes contain a lot of natural sugars. Adding two or three tablespoons to a glass of water or coffee will help stabilize your blood sugar. It may not taste all that great though.</p> <p><strong>Stimulate the scalp.</strong> In college, I had a friend who would cure his hangover by standing in the shower and aiming the high-powered jets at a certain spot on his head. I always thought it was odd, but there's method to the madness. By stimulating the scalp you are bringing blood into the area, and those open vessels help relieve a headache. Pull your hair (if you have some), use a gentle massager or try the shower-head technique.</p> <p><strong>Take a mustard bath.</strong> Now, before you go out and spend a few hundred bucks on Grey Poupon, relax. All you need to do is add a few tablespoons of mustard powder to a hot bath and soak for 20 minutes. Mustard has the ability to increase circulation and draw toxins out from the body. Give it a try.</p> <p><strong>Milk thistle.</strong> Available from any good vitamin store, milk thistle (silymarin) protects liver cells from toxins. It should be taken before going out for a few drinks, preferably with a meal or snack.</p> <p><strong>Get to know Kudzu extract.</strong> Also known as Pueraria lobata, Kudzu has been in used in traditional Chinese medicine for many years. It's something that actually helps reduce alcohol intake, so you're less likely to want those extra drinks that turn you from happy to completely bombed. It also contains isoflavones, diadzin and puerarin, which are known to speed up the hangover healing time.</p> <p><b>Give Yoga the time of day.</b> Some yoga poses can literally help you push the alcohol out of the effected organs. I have not tried this one, but I know a few people who swear by yoga as a hangover cure. Look at &quot;the seated twist&quot; for starters.</p> <p><b>Try a shot of wheatgrass.</b> Wheatgrass is considered to be a natural detoxifier, cleansing the body's blood and water and revitalizing the cells. It also contains powerful detoxifying agents and assists in hydration. Drink a glass at night before hitting the hay, and one the following morning for full effect.</p> <p><strong>Prickly pear cactus.</strong> Researchers at Tulane University and the University of California have discovered that prickly pear cactus extract (<em>Opuntia ficus indica</em>) can relieve hangover symptoms and dry mouth. It can also relieve inflammation. It is best taken several hours before you start drinking alcohol.</p> <p>Well, there you have it. If you know of any sure-fire hangover cures (other than not drinking in the first place) share them here so we can all benefit this holiday season. And as always, please, don't drink and drive.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/paul-michael">Paul Michael</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-ultimate-list-of-hangover-cures">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

I can usually tell when it's going to rain because, as the barometric pressure builds, my face feels more and more like it's going to burst off the rest of my head. I don't know why I was selected for this particular superpower. Most days, I would happily give it up for a life of normalcy. But instead, I fight the headaches. Since I also have allergies, get tension headaches, and fight the occasional migraine, the truth is that my head hurts a lot of the time. Over the years, I've come up with some things that relieve the pressure without lightening my checkbook.</p> <h3>1. Steam is your friend</h3> <p>It doesn't matter how you do it, just get some steam in those poor, swollen nasal passages. Actually, this helps me with whatever kind of headache I have &mdash; probably because it helps me relax! My favorite way to get steam is to close all the doors and windows to my bathroom and turn on the shower as hot as it will go (without me in it!). In a few minutes, my bathroom is a sauna and I can breathe again. The cleansed pores? Definitely a side benefit!</p> <h3>2. Drink tea</h3> <p>While tea is one way to get some steam, it also provides heat on the roof of your mouth. One set of sinuses sits right above the roof of your mouth, and heat helps both the swollen tissue and the clotted mucus. Tea is also relaxing, so it helps calm your muscles. If you're fighting a migraine, the caffeine can also give you the boost you need to beat it.</p> <h3>3. Put a warm, wet washcloth on your head</h3> <p>Again with the heat and the steam, as well as the fact that it just feels good. When your head hurts, you often unconsciously clench the muscles in your face. The warmth and the humidity help them relax.</p> <h3>4. Close your eyes</h3> <p>Even if your headache isn't directly related to eyestrain, closing your eyes can help. I can't find an explanation for this, though several doctors have told me to do it. My theory? It has something to do with the amount of information your mind is processing at once. This is particularly useful for stress-induced headaches.</p> <h3>5. Get some sleep</h3> <p>For me, headaches are connected to not getting enough sleep. My body just doesn't function as well when I'm not rested. When I catch up on some of these hours, bad headaches become manageable and slight ones disappear entirely.</p> <h3>6. Quack like a duck</h3> <p>Or do whatever it is you do when you need to laugh. Because laughing releases tension AND moves the muscles in your face in relatively unusual ways, it helps reduce tension headaches and allows sinuses to drain. Plus, it distracts you so you're not thinking solely about the throbbing going on in your head.</p> <h3>7. Exercise</h3> <p>Yes, it's good for your head as well as your heart...and your lungs...and your muscles...you get the idea. The endorphins that exercising releases after a good 20-30 minutes fight headaches, too. Sometimes it takes an act of God to get out of bed, but it's almost always been worth it for me.</p> <h3>8. Change positions</h3> <p>Sit or stand in a new position. Tilt your head to one side. Just do something different. This relieves your standard points of tension, thus reducing tension headaches, and also helps your sinuses drain (because all the nasty thick mucus can find the itty, bitty hole it's supposed to drain out of). If nothing else, it gives you a new perspective, and we all know how helpful that can be.</p> <h3>9. Get a backrub</h3> <p>Actually, get someone to press wherever you want them to. There are points in the head (and back, hands, and feet) that help reduce head pain. It sounded crazy to me, too, until I found myself at a conference I could not leave with a headache that would not leave and tried it. My headache didn't stop, but it did get to the point where your standard painkillers actually helped. Apparently, most headache sufferers are pretty good at finding these points on their own &mdash; they're the places you want to be touched when your head hurts. Bizarre, but helpful.</p> <p><em>I'm not a doctor. These are things that work for me, or that I've picked up over the years. If you take this advice, you do it at your own risk. Your doctor may tell you I'm crazy. I'm ok with that.</em></p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/sarah-winfrey">Sarah Winfrey</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/9-ways-to-beat-a-killer-headache-with-stuff-you-have-around-the-house">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

And now that I have, I'm actually really happy about it. I feel liberated, I feel healthier, and I have already saved myself quite a nice sum of cash &mdash; cash that used to go towards black gold of the Starbucks variety.</p> <p>Now, I'm not one to advocate for a boycott of caffeine or anything. But, if you're already thinking about quitting caffeine, here are some reasons, and methods, for doing so.</p> <h2>Let's get something straight</h2> <p>OK, let me first address some of the accusations that will doubtlessly be thrown at this post:</p> <ol> <li>No, I don't think that there is anything WRONG with drinking caffeinated beverages.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>No, I do not hate Starbucks. I actually quite like Starbucks. I know that the title of this article sounds like I want Starbucks to go down in flames, but that's not the case at all. I still occasionally go to Starbucks, and I like their breakfast quiche.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Yes, I realize that caffeine has been shown to have <a href="http://men.webmd.com/features/coffee-new-health-food">some positive health benefits</a>.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>And no, I'm not advising anyone to quit. I'm just offering advice for people who already know that they don't want to consume caffeine anymore.</li> </ol> <p>We good? OK.</p> <h2>Why would anyone want to quit?</h2> <p>Well, there are a number of reasons, but everyone has a different one. Some people freak out when their teeth start to stain. Some people want to save money, others have health reasons. For me, it was sort of a combination of all of these. I have stomach problems, and caffeine only exacerbates them. One cup of coffee in the morning felt like I was drinking a cup of lemon juice. The burning pain was simply too much to deal with.</p> <p>Also, drinking coffee just got to be a pain in the butt. Traveling somewhere where good coffee is scarce was a hazard (small towns in Nevada, especially). Oddly enough, I have never dated anyone who drinks coffee, so those cute couples that stumble down to Cafe Vita on a weekend in their PJs to share foamy lattes over the Sunday Times? That was never me. Solitary trips to Starbucks aren't nearly as fun as the ones you can take with a fellow caffeine addict.</p> <p>But most of all, I really hated being a slave to caffeine. I hated the fact that I <em>had to</em> consume at least a cup of coffee within an hour of waking up to stave off a splitting headache. I have a lot to do in the morning &mdash; dogs to feed and walk, gear to prepare &mdash; it takes me a good hour and a half from bed to door, and that's <em>without</em> much fussing about appearance. A trip to Starbucks made my morning routine that much longer.</p> <p>Sure, I could brew a pot of coffee, and I often would, but then I'd just drink that much more.</p> <p>For me, the decision was clear, but it took me a long time to make it, because DAMN, I really love coffee.</p> <p>Oh, I like other caffeinated beverages as well &mdash; Diet Coke is SO good with Indian food. But I could give those up fairly easily, and besides, they don't offer the energy and mental clarity that coffee does. Not even Red Bull has <a href="http://wilstar.com/caffeine.htm">as much caffeine as a cup of drip coffee</a>. Everyone knows that <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caffeine">caffeine is a drug</a>, but its effect is so useful, and its side effects so mild that we don't really care. A little nervousness here, some heartburn there, maybe some insomnia &mdash; but the sheer energizing potential of a cup of joe makes it seem worth any little needling problems.</p> <p>Usually. But for me, it simply got too bad. Stomach pain was a major factor, but there were others as well. In any case, once I realized that I had very little choice other than to quit, quitting was fairly easy.</p> <h2>How to quit</h2> <p>I have quit drinking coffee (and other caffeinated beverages) twice, but the first time didn't last. Interestingly enough, the first time I quit, I did it <a href="http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=43492">gradually</a>, by simply drinking a little less coffee every day until I was just drinking decaf, and then slowly reducing the amount of decaf that I drank. I managed to stay away from caffeine for a few weeks, but eventually fell off the wagon, as it were.</p> <p>This most recent time, I quit cold turkey. Just plain stopped. I let myself have a cup of decaf if I was feeling like I might crack and go back to swilling espresso, but mostly I just soldiered through the withdrawal symptoms.</p> <p>Here are some tips for quitting:</p> <h3>Start on a Friday</h3> <p>It takes anywhere from 4-11 days to be free from caffeine cravings. If you start on a Friday, by the next Monday, you'll be at least 1/3 of the way through.</p> <h3>Drink plenty of water</h3> <p>The faster you cleanse your body of caffeine, the better off you will be. Drinking clean water will purify your blood, help cleanse your liver, and make your body function better. If you want, you can drink some detox tea, but you don't have to. It'll just clean you out a bit faster.</p> <h3>Get the extra sleep that you want and need</h3> <p>Plan ahead and realize that you'll probably need 2-4 more hours of sleep per day while you adjust to a caffeine-free life. You can take it in the form of naps, or just get to bed earlier. But if you don't set aside this time, you will have a very difficult time quitting &mdash; you'll be dragging along at 1 p.m. and just NEED a cup of coffee. I know it's difficult, especially with a busy schedule, to find a way to sleep more, but it's an important step.</p> <h3>Get those painkillers ready</h3> <p>Have a headache from withdrawal? Take some ibuprofen or whatever it is that you normally take to get rid of the pain. An ice pack on the forehead or the back of your head can help, too.</p> <h3>Don't be afraid to have some decaf</h3> <p>Yes, there is still caffeine in decaf, but if you need your fix, you might be able to stave off a complete relapse by having a decaf version of your favorite caffeine source.</p> <h3>Discover another energy source</h3> <p>When I'm groggy, I take a quick walk around the block while listening to The Ramones. By the time I'm back at my desk, I'm refreshed and perky. Well, as perky as I get, anyway. An apple is a great replacement for my afternoon coffee.</p> <p>LifeHacker <a href="http://lifehacker.com/software/caffeine/ask-lifehacker-readers-kicking-the-caffeine-habit-166789.php">readers offer some good tips</a> for quitting, too.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/andrea-karim">Andrea Karim</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/stop-being-a-slave-to-starbucks-how-to-quit-caffeine">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.
