Hangover Cures For Your Stag Do
If you can't do the time, don't do the crime and I suppose that may also apply to drinking a VAT load of booze on a stag weekend however, that doesn't make things easier, your head won't bang any less thinking, "well I'm the only one to blame here", so with that in mind, let's find some cures to make life a little easier on that fateful Sunday morning!
Seriously, it's so easy and free! One of the main reasons why you have such a bad head is your body has pee'd out most of your bodily fluids - did you know that drinking 200ml of say a 4 or 5% lager, your body will urinate 320ml, that's 120ml of fluids you are down on half a pint.
So if you haven't remembered to drink a ruck load of water before hitting the sac then when you wake up drink at least a litre of water (slowly), get your fluids back up to normal levels, that should help alleviate some of the pain.
According to Dena Davidson a Ph.D professor from Indiana University School of Medicine, the best tablets are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin or Naproxen. The best way to wash your tablet/s down is with grapefruit juice recommended by the nutritionist Hannah Richards, apparently Grapefruit limits the enzyme that breaks down drugs.
ALWAYS READ THE LABEL AND TAKE THE RECOMMENDED DOSAGE.
Hair of the dog
Really... More booze, is that a recommendation? According to Wikipedia this old saying - "Hair of the dog" comes from Scotland and the true meaning is;
If you've been bitten by a dog, get some hair from that dog and put it on the wound as treatment! I have two issues with this:
- If a dog has bitten you, don't go back and try and get some hair from it, as you're going to need some more hair from it!
