AWWW DO YOU HAVE A HEADACHE?


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  Or sorry was that too loud. Does your head hurt? Is your stomach doing flipflops? Awwww poor baby. Did you have a good time?
Well this is a little early but some of this information will help you before the New Years parties.

Besides the obvious way not to be hungover...not drinking, here are some other things to try.

In China they drink strong green tea or water with lemon or vinegar.

Germans eat pickled herring or rollmops. This is refered to as katerfruhstuck or hangover breakfast.

Americans will make a cocktail of  tomato juice, Worscestershire sauce, black pepper and a raw egg yolk. You can add a little hair of the dog if you know what I mean and no I am not literal here. Be cautious with raw egg. Swallow this down very quickly. If it stays down I would be surprised.

In the Netherlands they feel a couple of cold beers are the sure cure. Or are they just starting over?

Polish remedies include sour things such as soured milk that has been left out for a couple days or very vinegary pickles. Because they just don't think your stomach is sour enough after drinking lime margaritas all night.


Vuelva al la vida is a Mexican seafood salad of shellfish mixed with tomato, onion, lime and cilantro just like a fish salsa. In english this means "return to life".

Russians prefer to head to the sauna and whip themselves vigorously with birch branches while sweating out the toxins.

In Italy coffee is the key to getting through the hangover. I would think it would have to be delicious strong Italian coffee best drank right there in Greve.

Japan cures what ails them with extremely salty pickled plums sometimes taken with green tea. This is known as the "futsuka yoi" or "two days drunk". Other cures are a miso soup with freshwater clams and fresh or dried persimmons.

Saving the best for last we have the Romanian cure which is also popular in Mexico, Turkey and many other countries. My brother in law is Romanian but you can be sure he has never tried this cure. If anything I think it would cure you from ever drinking again. Here they eat a tripe soup that is boiled in a greasy, salty soup with cream, root vegetables, garlic and vinegar.

Well if you survive the hangover the cure may kill you. Take care and Happy New Year to all of my bloggy friends. All the best in 2010.

The people in the Netherlands are probably the only ones who get any relief---the rest are just puinishing themselves. :) Happy and healthy (and pain free) New Year's! :)

Well, that just locked in my answer...I am not drinking, especially if I have to use one of these cures!
Happy New Year!

Hugs,

I have the distinct feeling that the midnight fireworks will be waking us up, not a hangover.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

Well, gee. This is one of the first times I've been thrilled to be allergic to alcohol! Wow, some of those cures don't seem to make the effort worth it! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you!!!
That German Katerfruehstueck actually works. However it certainly helps if you like seafood!
Hugs,

So what do we Canadians do? I'm not sure anything works but a good old fashion HAMBURGER, like a White Spot triple O... one of Randy's favourites. Of course Ontario doesn't have any White Spot's... just lots of white stuff.
Happy New Year Lori, all the best.
Love Claudie

Reading these hangover cures certainly make me think twice about drinking! YUK! Unfortunately, cedar fever has reared it's ugly head early this year, I think we'll be toasting the New Year with benadryl and hot tea lol. Have a great New Year! Kathy

Ali said...

In England, from what I've seen, they figure the cure for hangover is to drink some more. Go figure.

Happy 2010!

When I was a young lad and enjoyed an alcoholic beverage or seven, I had a most excellent hang over cure. It worked everytime. As I was slippin' into my jeans and shirt,I would have a large glass of pure orange juice pulp included. . .. after putting on shoes and coat if needed, another large glass of orange juice. . .. then off for a night of fun and dancing. ..

When I got home, 2 more glasses of pure orange juice with pulp. . . and then off to the bedroom. . . . [deleted due to adult activity]. . . . . . . woke up next morning. . . no hangover.

Every time a person goes to have a pisser in thebathroom when drinking, they lose all the vitamins and proteins in their body systems. .. alcohol does that to you. .. .

With the orange juice drunk before hand, you maintain some of the proteins and vitamins. . . and the two glasses when you get home, satisfies the bodies minimium requirements.

No hangover. ...
