Raw eggs in tomato juice, tons of water, sour herrings followed with a beer chaser, pickled sheep eyes in a glass of tomato juice - this is just the short list of the godforsaken things people put themselves through to cure their hangovers.
It is not easy to cure the notorious side-effects of a night of debauchery.
The room swirls, your head pounds and your stomach plays twister and somehow, in the midst of all this, you're trying to figure out whether the fundis said you should drink coffee or avoid it, whether breakfast is meant to be a good thing or you should just keep the grumbling empty stomach going and whether tomato juice does the trick or not. Before you've reached a conclusion, you think you can muster up the will to act on, you've collapsed on the bedroom floor.
Curing a hangover is no longer the quandary it used to be. Thanks to Drink Ease, a new homeopathic remedy that contains Avena Sativa (wild oats) to combat nervous exhaustion; Capsicum Annuum (chilli pepper) to alleviate digestive problems and bleary eyes; Nux Vomica (nutmeg) to lessen headaches, migraines and sleeplessness; Veratum Album (white hellebore) to prevent dehydration, nausea and fainting, and Zinc to ease exhaustion, mental and physical weakness.
All you have to do is chew one of these tablets - they don't contain yeast or sugar - get some rest and your hangover will soon be a bad memory. Keitumetse Segoai
