Hangover cures & remedies are presented in two views.
If you've ever had one, chances are you wished for any way possible to get rid of it. A lot of legendary stories involve one. Pounding headaches, nausea and many of the other dreaded effects of a hangover stem from simple but servere dehydration. But there's a little more science behind it all.
The short version for those trying to read ahead is this - Alcohol is a diuretic, which ironically means that it causes the person drinking it to lose water since our bladders start to expel more water than they take in. Thus, why drinking makes you want to, well... pee so much. (Read the long version of it all here.)
Not to ruin the rest of the story, but lets get to what everybody and their drinking buddy really wants to know. Good old fashioned time and water are probably the closest thing most doctors and scientists would even entertain as a so-called 'cure'. With that said, we have some other interesting 'remedies' that others swear by.
Here's a list of home remedies we've found that supposedly taking care of that massive, pounding hangover. Some are from bartenders, some are just folklore. Some are even billed as natural ways to take care of 'the dog that bit 'ya'. Just remember, only time and water are what most doctors and scientists believe in. That, and the fact that prevention is often the best form of medicine.
They may not be scientifically sound. They may not even be remotely effective. But ask around and these top five hangover 'cures' seem to be the most popular around.
