Unfortunately there isn't one cure-all for a hangover, as the symptoms can range from dehydration and a pounding headache to flu-like symptoms, even seizures. According to various blogs and sites, including RUpissed? and HubPages, any of the following will do the trick to quell nausea, headaches, cleanse toxins, and to get the good stuff back in you.

Nausea relief: Coke, coffee, ginseng, Vegemite on toast (plus vitamin B boost), cold pizza, bananas, peanut butter, honey and banana sandwich, chocolate milk

Sweat it out: Hot bath

Rehydration and balancing sugar and minerals levels: ginseng, orange juice, tomato, a 600mg vitamin C tablet, Berocca (a 15-pack multi-vitamin tab £5.81/€6.85), chocolate milk, sauerkraut, pickle juice, eggs (raw is best), passion fruit juice

Headache relief: Aspirin or the like, natural willow barks can also be chewed, bananas
