Tips to Beat a Hangover the day after St. Patrick’s Day

hangover cure

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest drinking days of the year. If you wake up unsure of how many green beers, Irish car bombs or shots of whiskey you drank, you may be in need of a hangover cure. Typical hangover symptoms include nausea, sensitivity to light and a headache. Hangovers occur when your liver is trying to clear out excessive amounts of chemicals and toxins ingested from too much alcohol. Here are some helpful hints to help you recover the morning after St. Patrick’s Day.


Hangovers are caused by changes in body chemistry and the toxic chemicals in alcohol. Alcohol is a diuretic, which can leave you dehydrated. Changes your body’s chemistry can also cause you to lose water, so it’s important to hydrate in order to avoid a pounding headache the next day. Remember for every pint of beer, drink a glass of water.

Alkaline water is the perfect beverage to restore you system after drinking alcohol. Alkaline water hydrates, restores homeostasis, removes acidic waste, boosts oxygenation of blood and acts as an antioxidant. Restock the body with necessary fluids and nutrients to break down toxins and reduce the negative reaction to the chemicals in alcohol.

Replenish Electrolytes

When you’re dehydrated from alcohol your body is in need of potassium, electrolytes and sodium. Consider electrolyte water, a pediatric electrolyte beverage, or a sports drink. They also sell electrolyte pills, fizzes and liquid drops as well. It’s essential to replenish all the necessary nutrients including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, hydrogen phosphate and hydrogen carbonate. Make sure to keep your electrolytes in check while you’re drinking or after you’ve finished.


If you’re hungover, you might be sensitive to light, certain smells and even movement. A strong scent from certain foods could easily make you feel nauseous. Headaches also occur when blood sugar dips and body is dehydrated after consuming alcohol, so it’s important to eat. Toast and crackers are great hangover foods, they are bland, absorb the alcohol and since they are carbohydrates, they help raise blood sugar to get rid of your headache.
