All of us over-indulge every now and again, and have suffered from symptoms including headaches, nausea, dehydration and tiredness. Together with plenty of proven hangover cures, this little book reveals simple strategies for prevention, damage limitation and speedy recovery. Before: Prime your liver with lots of water, carrot or beetroot juice line your stomach by eating something - the munchies before the thirst. During: Match every glass of alcohol with a diluting glass of water; avoid sweet drinks such as pre-mixed spirits and liqueurs, as sugar speeds up alcohol absorption. After: Drink fizzy water to help you rehydrate and re-oxygenate your blood; eat foods such as muesli, nuts and fruit, to help absorb toxins and balance stomach acidity. Quite simply, detox your hangover, and you need never say 'Never again -' again!
