6 Weird Hangover Cures That You Probably Didn't Know About

January 26, 2015

We are all familiar with hangover symptoms: headaches, nausea, intolerance to bright light, sluggishness, body aches, dehydration...the list goes on. If you ever wake up in a state where you think all hope is lost, remember to check this list for some weird, but effective hangover remedies - some people swear by them! The following remedies are typically found in the average person’s home, so it’s likely you’ll find at least one in yours!


1. Pickle Juice

Pickle juice contains lots of wonderful salty electrolytes that help your body recover after a night of heavy drinking. So if all else fails, open up that jar of pickles in the back of the fridge and drink up!


2. Rubbing Lemon Slices Under Your Armpits

In Puerto Rico, you’ll find this remedy to be very common. Rubbing lemon slices under your armpit [before drinking] supposedly counteracts dehydration. Therefore your headache is prevented and you’re feeling A-OK! NOTE: Make sure to NOT go in the sun before washing it off -- it will stain your skin!


3. The Prairie Oyster (Cocktail)

Don’t be alarmed. This concoction is as weird as it looks, but many people swear by this! The ingredients include: 1 raw egg, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper & 2 dashes of Tabasco sauce. Instructions: Crack the egg into a glass, leaving the yolk unbroken. Pour in the Worcestershire sauce, sprinkle the salt and pepper and lastly the tabasco sauce. And gulp.


4. Bull’s Eye

Another egg-based remedy. If your stomach can handle it! Here are the instructions: Add 1 raw egg into a glass of orange juice - that simple. This  winning combo is hard to beat -- eggs contain a chemical called cysteine, which helps restore function to your body and orange juice provides the Vitamin C to revitalize your body.


5. Activated Charcoal

[In pill form]. Activated charcoal is known to have characteristics that entrap chemicals and prevent their absorption. It also provides prevention of nausea. You can find these pills at all major Vitamin shops.


6. Fish Scrape

This is a common remedy served as a soup in Peru. This remedy includes lime juice, lemon juice, fish stock and fish scraps, garlic and ginger. This will cure your aching head and [fun fact] it’s also an aphrodisiac.
