Most hangovers are caused by all of the chemicals and harmful ingredients that are in the cocktails that we drink. However, even if we drink naturally, but drink too much, we can be left with a hangover in the morning. I was interviewed by BuzzFeed Creative Hannah Chamberlain, along with several other LA mixologists, about what my go to hangover cure was recently.
I certainly recommend drinking too much. But if we do, then an all natural hangover remedy that I highly recommend will help you back on your feet!
- 1 TBL apple cider vinegar*
- 1 TBL local raw honey*
- Add all to a tall glass, stir before drinking.
Why these ingredients:
Apple Cider Vinegar – it dissolve foreign substances in the body and will also balance pH levels and increase deficient minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.
Honey – Because of its antioxidant properties, honey neutralizes the toxins created by consuming alcohol. Dr. John Emsley, UK Popular Science writer and chemistry academic, claims the natural fructose in honey helps the body rapidly metabolize alcohol. According to Dr. Emsley, “the fructose in honey is an essential compound that helps the body break down alcohol into harmless by-products.”
Chlorophyll – helps bind to toxins to assist them safely out of the body. It helps to hydrate, balance pH, and is rich in enzymes and antioxidants.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt – Dehydration has significantly dropped your body’s sodium levels. Drinking salt will raise them quickly, and give you an energy boost. It will also help replace the vital minerals and electrolytes lost.
And Yoga is great for detoxifying the body and moving around the stagnant energy to get your blood flowing (all of which needs to happen after drinking). Twisting poses and back bends to reverse the blood flow and wring out the toxic build up in your spine are best!
