Quick fixes to get rid of a hangover post Holi celebrations

Bhang spreads rapidly in the body and activates bodily functions.

Neighbourhood Lifestyle Desk/Avi Arya: Holi celebrations, coupled with bhang, bring along some perils, too. From pakoras, thandai to brownies, bhang is served in a myriad forms. Consuming bhang can cause dehydration, nausea and headache.

Here are some precautions that you should follow:


  • Keep your stomach full before consuming bhang or bhang-laced delicacies.
  • Avoid eating fried and heavy food. It tends to worsen the after-effects.
  • Drink lots of water so that the toxins keep flushing out.
  •  Don’t take painkillers.
  • People suffering from high blood pressure and heart diseases should never consume bhang.


  • Drink lemon water as it is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. It helps to get rid of nausea.
  • For a post-bhang detox, eat fresh fruits, salad and drink juices. Fibre will help clean out the stomach. Laxatives like Isabgol and Triphala also help.
  • A cup of black tea or coffee helps by suppressing bhang’s effects in the brain.
