If you've woken up after a wild New Year's Eve party with a nasty hangover, Angela Epstein of the Daily Mail has written this handy guide on (some strange) ways to minimize the symptoms and cure the headache, nausea and body aches:
RUB YOUR ARMPITS WITH LEMON
Puerto Ricans apparently swear by this holistic cure. The lemon juice supposedly stops you sweating and so helps you retain fluid and prevent the dehydration that contributes to hangover headaches. [...]
SNACK ON A BANANA
Bananas contain a lot of potassium, a mineral lost when we drink alcohol and a lack of which contributes to the dehydration symptoms of hangover, says Tom MacDonald, professor of immunology at Bart's and The London School of Medicine.
Bananas are also a source of carbohydrates and eating one will raise blood sugar levels and so stave off nausea.
