It’s official... “the day after” has arrived and you are sicker than you ever thought possible. So what can you do about it? After about 5,000 years of drinking alcohol, we still have not discovered a cure for hangovers. Or at least, no true cure other than time.
For centuries cultures around the world have searched in vain for a cure for hangovers. While there are enough concoctions to make your head spin (if it isn’t spinning already), few of them are helpful, and NONE cure the hangover.
The strong desire for a hangover cure has led to many strange experimental remedies. In the middle ages, for example, hangover sufferers tried to relieve their pain by eating a mixture that included raw eel.
Strange remedies exist in our own culture, and as ridiculous as they sound, most of us have tried them. It’s 2AM and you are exhibiting the three “S’s”: slobbering, stuttering and staggering. In desperation, you brew a pot of coffee and take a cold shower. Do these old remedies actually work? Learn the truth about some Old Wives’ Tales.
Regardless of how desperately we search, a hangover cure will loom tauntingly before us like the holy grail of sinners everywhere. Keep in mind, it will always be much easier to get a hangover than to cure one. In the meantime, here are some amusing hangover cure recipes to keep you busy (and experimenting).
