A typical greasy hangover breakfast is the usual approach to a hangover. But you may want to rethink this. Naturopath David Stelfox suggests sipping green tea or lemon juice and water, beetroot, carrot, celery and ginger juice to ease the queasy tummy. Digestive supplements may also help. If you're trying to face Monday morning with little or no sleep, don't rely on caffeine to see you through the day. While a strong coffee may stimulate the circulation and provide a temporary energy boost, it's essential to catch up on lost sleep. In the meantime, power on with non-caffeine herbs such as Korean ginseng, and avoid sugary and processed foods, which will only make you more tired, says Stelfox. Suffering from a sore throat after a heavy night's smoking or exposure to second-hand smoke? Stelfox suggests taking a vitamin A supplement and a source of beta-carotene, such as carrot juice, to help restore the mucous membranes in the mouth, throat and nose, which can become inflamed after smoking heavily. Eating red, yellow, and orange fruit and vegetables provide an excellent source of antioxidants, and will restore the free radical damage to tissues caused by smoking. Sore throats caused by passive smoking can be relieved by gargling with warm salty water and inhaling the water through each nostril will clear and soothe the sinuses. Sage tea and slippery elm powder dissolved in water are also effective, says naturopath Gill Stannard.
