Top 5 Natural Hangover RemediesPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX, Ariz. – Overindulged this weekend? Here are some natural remedies to help you feel better fast.
Jolene Goring is a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist, as well as the Nutrition & Fitness Director at TriVita Wellness Center. She specializes in helping people live healthier and have fun. Here are some of Goring's tips to help detox the body:
1. Water, water, water! As you are out enjoying yourself, drink one glass of water with each alcoholic beverage. Have a glass of water on your bedside table to drink before bed, and drink lots of water the next day. Ideally drink half your weight in ounces of water—so if you weigh 100 lbs, drink 50 oz. of water.
2. Lemon Tea: Drink this detox tea first thing in the morning and throughout the day. This helps the liver and kidneys clean the body out. Ginger helps with any feelings of nausea. Cinnamon and apple cider vinegar help to balance the blood sugar.
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Ginger (grated fresh or powdered)
Sprinkle of cinnamon
3. Fruits and Veggies: Eat mostly fruits and veggies throughout the day to let your body rest and repair from the damage the night before.
Vitamins B & C - alcohol depletes B-Vitamins, and Vitamin C is full of antioxidants to help your body detox.
Omega-3 - think fish oil, flax, chia seeds or walnuts. This is a powerful anti-inflammatory that can help to balance your body.
5. Move your body! Sweating will help your body to flush the toxins out. Anything that increases blood flow is great, including massage, yoga, and cardio exercise.
