The Nausea of Hangovers - How To Survive

By: granola
One of the worst parts about a hangover is the nausea. It's sometimes impossible to take any remedy, even an aspirin, and hold it down until it can start to work. You probably already know some of the things that help you when you're facing the nausea of a hangover - or nausea for any other reason, for that matter. But take a look at some advice you may not have thought of.

The nausea pros - moms to be - have a hatful of tricks they use to get their days started when nausea is threatening to put their lives on hold. One of those is to eat something very dry and drink something very light. Even our grandmothers said that plain crackers or dry toast was a good thing to eat when nausea was a problem. And they were right!

Start with only a small amount of either, then wash it down with something very light. A weak tea is usually a good idea for a drink - hot if you're feeling chilled or cold if you're feeling flushed and overheated.

Some people can tolerate something heavier, and there are some good rules to follow when deciding what you should and shouldn't eat.

Avoid acids and grease until the nausea has subsided. Both acids and grease tend to churn around in your stomach, making the nausea worse for as long at it remains there - usually until you throw up. If you're expecting the nausea of a hangover, avoid those rich foods in the hours leading up to the drinking as well because grease tends to take longer to digest - it'll still be hanging around the next morning, just waiting to aggravate the problem.

Trust your nose and your thoughts. If the smell of something makes your nausea worse, you're probably not going to tolerate it well on your stomach. By the same token, if simply thinking about a particular food makes your stomach churn, that's not likely to be a good idea either. After all, controlling your stomach starts in your mind and if the thought of some particular food causes a reaction, the food itself is probably going to be worse.

Remember that dizziness and nausea go hand in hand. That means that you're more likely to be seriously nauseated if you stand or move around quickly. If possible, lay still for a while to let the nausea pass. Do whatever it takes to avoid dizziness.

Eat a little. Rack your brain until you can come up with something that you think you can eat. Then eat only a little of it. It's important to get something on your stomach or the natural acids will simply continue to wreak havoc. Throughout the day, continue to eat only small amounts until you're well past the nausea.
