Hangovers are a sign that your body is extremely dehydrated. Staying hydrated will alleviate the headaches, dizziness, and light-headedness that result from a hangover. It is especially important to load up on fluids if you are vomiting.
✔︎ Drink plenty of water
✔︎ Drink coconut water, it’s rich in electrolytes
Most headaches secondary to alcohol consumption are caused by both dehydration and an imbalance of electrolytes.
✗ Avoid coffee or caffeinated teas
Many people drink coffee in order to “wake up” from a hangover, but the caffeine will only make matters worse by further dehydrating you.
✔︎ Try ginger herbal tea
If you’re feeling nauseated, the ginger helps calm your stomach.
✗ Rumour: Sweat it out with exercise
If you exercise and aren’t properly hydrated, your symptoms could worsen. The endorphin rush that typically comes along with a workout could temporarily make you feel better but the gym is not the answer for hangover cures.
