Hi. I'm Trina Simms of Green Star Herbs and today I'm going to tell you about some natural remedies for a hangover. My first recommendation is that if you feel nauseous, go ahead and throw up. Rinse your teeth carefully afterwards, so that they're not damaged by the stomach acids. Then, you want to cool your head and warm your extremities. You really can just wet your hair and let that suffice or if you have an ice pack or can wrap a cool wet towel around your head. Any of those will help. Put on maybe a double pair of socks, gloves if you have them, sweatpants -- something like that. This will help with the headache. Then, mix yourself up a large glass of my magic potion. To a large glass of water, add the juice of half a lemon, about a tablespoon of dark maple syrup or molasses and a pinch of salt. Go lie quietly with your head cool and the rest of you nice and warm and sit back. If you can't take the time to lie down and relax, you need to get going for the day, then stir a little cayenne pepper into that lemon concoction. It'll give you a little lift of energy and help keep you going. Coffee is not your friend with a hangover. OK? If you regularly drink coffee regularly and you get headaches when you don't, then go ahead and drink half a cup or whatever you need just to stave off the headache and switch to the lemon concoction. Otherwise, too much coffee will continue to dehydrate you, and that will contribute to worsening the headache and making the whole misery just last longer. I hope you never need this information, but if you do, I hope it helps. Thank you.
