10 crazy hangover cures used by our drunken ancestors


It’s January 1st, and I need a hangover cure, so I thought I would go back in time to see what our ancestors used.

10 crazy hangover cures

Number 1 – The resin of the Commiphora tree (myrrh) and ground-up bird beaks. Yummy!

Number 2 – Pickled sheep’s eyeballs. You see where I’m going with this now, don’t you?

Number 3 – Lick your own sweat. Now that’s a salty treat.

Number 4 – Snort tree Ivy juice. Why not? You probably snorted worse last night.

Number 5 – Prairie oysters. Now that’s something I can do, raw eggs in a shot glass with whiskey and Tabasco.

Number 6 – Raw owl’s eggs and sheep’s lungs. Nope, I like number 5.

Number 7 – Rabbit dung. You can thank the American cowboy for this one. Yippee-ki-yay!

Number 8 – Skull dust, dried viper, and spirit of hartshorn. You can’t make this stuff up, and the skull has to be from a freshly hanged criminal.

Number 9 – Bull penis soup. Good luck with that one.

And finally, Number 10 – Fried canary. Now that’s just mean.

I hope you enjoyed this little look at the hangover cures of our drunken ancestors. Now go get some aspirin out of your medicine cabinet and be thankful.
