Nux Vomica: Best Hangover Remedy EVER
We had an accidental run-in with some heavy duty margaritas last weekend - seemed like a typical weekend with some minor blackouts and whatnot. We're not prone to bad hangovers here since we spend so many hours in training, but we woke up feeling bad. As in BAD. We're talking headache, nausea, sour stomach, general malaise. We thought we were down for the count but a friend of ours suggested we give Nux Vomica a try.
We weren't sure what it was, but we were ready to try anything. He said it was a homeopathic remedy and shook out 2 little tablets from a bottle that looked like a chapstick and told us to hold them under our tongue. Skeptical to say the least, we tried it. We were amazed to find that we were feeling ship shape in about 20 minutes, and we vowed to always have a tube of the little suckers around.
You'll want to be careful and don't overdo it (the full name does contain the word "strychnine"), but all we can say is you can buy it at Amazon and we're about to. Read on for more information about Nux Vomica as a hangover remedy.
