Alcoholic Poisoning

A few recipes from the straight forward, very practical and ingenious food branch of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to cure hangovers from drinking to much alcohol.

a. 15 g tea infused in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drink a large cupful.
b. Put 15 g of withe sugar in 30 ml vinegar. Dilute with hot water, and when the sugar has completely dissolved drink.

My personal tips in order to avoid a severe hangover after a drinking binge:
(water, protein, sugar, salt, vitamins)

Drink a large amount of water
Eat a protein rich snack (ex. eggs and bacon, herring or salmon)
Spice with salt
Take a vitamin pill or a vitamin C
Drink Orange Juice

The body should of curse rest (sleep) to be able to recuperate properly. Drink 2 big glasses of water before going to bed.

The day after. Some light exercise and appropriate massage to relieve tensions may be in place after the circumstances. Some people feel that a walk helps. My girlfriend recommends a warm bath for the feet with herbs – against colds and others symptoms of discomfort!
