After a night of drinking and clubbing with your friends, you wake up with a stomachache, a headache, you feel nauseous and you are finding it hard to get out of bed. You have a hangover.
No one can really say what causes a hangover. My uncle will say shi**y alcohol. Some theories say that alcohol disrupts biological rhythms; others that alcohol withdrawal is the culprit. One thing I can say is alcohol is the reason you feeling that way.
A headache is most likely caused by the dehydration that occurs when you take alcohol (alcohol is diuretic) and your body’s adjustment to your dropping blood alcohol levels after you’ve stopped drinking.
If you don’t want to be hung-over, stay away from alcohol, or drink in moderation. If not, you’ll have to deal with the symptoms for about 8-24 hours (and if you are like my friend Oliver, about 36 hours). But, it is often easy to overindulge and that can lead to you feeling queasy the morning after.

But there are simple natural ways to avoid the pain or tackle the general malaise the day after; you just have to find the one that works for you. CONTINUE ON THE NEXT PAGE TO READ ALL.
