Never rely on this gross drink to cure a hangover

It's one of the worst feelings in the world to wake up with a throbbing headache, unrelenting nausea, and a weak stomach. Nobody likes hangovers and most of us end up scrambling for home remedies – water, greasy food, sports drinks, and more – in a bid to overcome dehydration and get back on track. As per Delish, some hangover cures are better than the others and preventive measures are touted to be the wisest choice. For example, eating food before a drinking session can help avoid a hangover later, and even sipping glasses of water regularly between drinks can help you slow down and stop a hangover in its tracks.

Instead of coffee, which can be dehydrating when you're fighting a hangover, it's recommended to go for an option like ginger tea to get rid of nausea. Also ideal? A peaceful nap that lets you get much-needed rest which you've probably not managed to get access to after a restless night. These alleged hangover cures don't seem outlandish, right? But there are also bad choices, and we don't just mean drinking too much alcohol in the first place. Here's one idea to combat hangovers that you should definitely avoid. 

Prairie oysters are a waste of time

The prairie oyster is an alleged hangover drink that has raw eggs, hot sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Doesn't sound like fun, does it? According to doctors who spoke with ABC News, this drink doesn't do a thing to help you feel better. You may end up feeling more nauseous with a prairie oyster. The only upside is that the probability of being forced to turn to something like prairie oysters was expressed by Dr. Brian Grosberg, director of the Inpatient Headache Program at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, who suggested that the possibility of being forced to turn to something like prairie oysters may prevent you from drinking too much in the first place.

Other weird hangover myths to avoid? Rubbing your armpits with questionable items like lemons. Umm, no. Let's stick to hydrating and a good breakfast, shall we? Though it's worth noting that headache experts told ABC that no proposed remedy could cure a hangover. Perhaps take it easy on the booze the next time around.
