Not precisely an ailment, but rather a self-inflicted injury, most of us have suffered from a hangover at one time or another. The headache, stomach irritation and lethargy are caused by general dehydration coupled with the toxic affects of several alcohol byproducts on our liver and kidneys.
As well as relieving the symptoms of the hangover, herbal infusions can assist the liver and kidneys in removing toxins. Infusions of lavender or thyme with honey will soothe the headache and calm the queasy stomach and a cup of peppermint tea will not only relieve nausea, but also combat dehydration.
