Dehydration: It is difficult to recommend a best cure for a hangover as many have been suggested and none have proven best. Hangovers can cause multitude symptoms (on your GI tract as well as neurologic). The causes are not just the alcohol, but the alcohol byproducts and the body changes that these produce. Other congeners add to the damage. Main rule is not to drink to the point of getting drunk. Cheers
