    Default Cures for hangovers.

    Hello All!

    The discussion of menudo reminded me that many foods are reputed to be
    cures for hangovers. I don't believe the reputations much but both
    Mexican Menudo soup and Thai Drunken Noodles are supposed be cures.
    Does anyone have any other suggestions? I might even test them :-)

    Sub-lingual vitamin B-12. (Sold by Twinlabs as "B-12 dots").

    It helps to also ingest extra B-12 prior to "indulging".

    I've not suffered from hangovers in years...

    Intravenous fructose is used for people with high alcohol levels in the ER.
    It can reduce blood alcohol levels by half in 15 minutes. But I don't know
    if the results would be the same from ingested fructose. Tomato juice was
    an old bartender's remedy, hence, the Bloody Mary. Some hangover relief
    coupled with some hair of the dog.

    Huh?? I can't say I've ever seen or heard of IV Fructose and I treat

    I've remembered two more. Prairie Oyster (whole egg yolk in tomato
    juice, Tabasco and Worchester Sauce). It's not the same as a Rocky
    Mountain Oyster and doesn't work tho' it can produce vomiting just by
    looking at it :-) Japanese pickled plums (Umeboshi?) don't work either.
    I'm not interested in medical approaches and I'll suffer rather than
    trying them:-) To be honest, I've not had a real hangover in many years.

    1 part tequila
    2 parts half n half
    nutmeg
    ice

    mix

    drink

    party on, dude!

    I like wasabi. (On sushi.) Really opens up those blood vessels in
    the head.

    If I can't get that, I like nachos, with plenty of salsa.

    I don't often get hangovers with nausea anymore, but I occasionally
    get
    headaches from overindulging (and under-hydrating).

    I don't know why, but hot and spicy foods are often touted as hangover
    cures. Maybe because the peppers make you sweat out the alcohol? I dunno.
    Back in the day I used to crave tamales or a bowl of chili accompanied by
    saltine crackers. That was a long time ago.

    I never cared much for Bloody Mary's. Wasn't a big vodka fan nor a fan of
    tomato (or clamato) juice.

    We're going to have to do a close study of this.

    You need to get ****faced and *not* take the B-12, and let us know the
    results..... then get ****faced and take the B-12, and then get ****faced
    and take a placebo :-)


    That's next week all taken care of :-)

    Have 14 days on 24hour callout :-)

    I like both, but I sometimes leave out the vodka and make myself a
    "Virgin Mary."

    BTW - I've never tried clamato juice and don't know whether we can get
    it in New Zealand. But from what I've read about it during a google
    search it sounds like something I'd like.
