5 DIY and safe hangover cures to try this weekend

You can run, but you can’t hide from a hangover. Damn if we haven’t tried.

Everyone has a remedy they swear works for them, from chewing garlic, to rubbing a lemon on your armpit, to drinking more (a.k.a. the hair of the dog).

Though there’s no cure-all medicine yet for hangovers, there are plenty of ways you can assuage the booze-infused assault that comes after a night of heavy drinking. But first, you have to understand the nature of a hangover.

“The most significant thing that’s going on in your body is inflammation,” says Dr. Jason Burke in an interview with Mashable.

The Las Vegas-based doctor started his career as an anesthesiologist, but has since become a hangover specialist, founding the medical clinic Hangover Heaven. The clinic, which has treated nearly 25,000 patients, has developed numerous methods, such as vitamin supplements and IV treatments, to combat alcohol-induced headaches and nausea.

“[Inflammation] is where a lot of the headache and nausea and vomiting come from,” Dr. Burke explains.

The whole thing about dehydration is folklore…[it] makes the symptoms worse, but it’s not the sole cause of what’s going on.”

A wine aficionado himself, Dr. Burke shared numerous ways you can treat hangovers yourself.
