Tip #1 - Virgin Bloody Mary
According to Dr. Travis of the show, drinking too much alcohol can lead to toxic build up of a component called acetaldehyde. The doctor suggests drinking a virgin Bloody Mary, which contain egg yolks and esparagus. According to "The Drs" show -- seen in the video below -- drinking hair of the dog will only add to the alcohol level of the body, not decrease it.
He explains that egg yolks contain cysteine, which helps break down acetaldehyde. He later adds that esparagus helps break down the toxins as well.
Tip #2 - Drink Gatorade
Fitness Magazine states drinking sports drinks such as, Gatorade or Powerade, will help with a hangover. The site reports that sports drinks contain electrolytes that help replenish and restore system levels in the body. The drinks also contain sugar that give the body carbohydrates for energy.
Tip #3 - Eat Light
There is a widely believed myth that eating greasy food can help with alcohol in-take, reports Health. However, Dr. Cutler states, "Greasy food is just going to give you heartburn."
Dr. John Brick, author of "The Doctor's Hangover Handbook", advises people to eat light and stay hydrated to prevent a hangover.
Tip #4 - Over-The-Counter Paracetamol
NHS Choice advises people with hangovers to take "paracetamol-based remedies" because it will not further irritate the stomach or increase nausea as oppose to an aspirin.
Tip #5 - Soup
According to NHS Choice, having some Bouillon soup could help with a hangover because it is a good source of vitamins and minerals. The soup is also easy on the stomach, which is a big plus.
Tip #6 - Skip the Sauna
Some people think that sweating out the toxins from alcohol can help relieve a hangover, reports Health. However, according to the Finnish State Alcohol Company's Research Laboratories, sauna bathing can cause blood pressures to drop and abnormal heart rhythms.
Tip #7 - Don't Exercise
Believe it or not, some people actually exercise to relieve their hangovers. However, Dr. Cutler from Health says exercising with a hangover is ill-advised.
The doctor says, "Remember: If you've been drinking heavily, you could be a little dehydrated, you could be metabolically behind on your nutrition, and exercise is going to require hydration and nutrition."
Tip #8: Sleep
According to Fitness Magazine sleeping off a hangover might just be the best solution. The site reports that metabolizing alcohol is the best way to get rid of a hangover, so why not sleep while the body does its work.

U.S. history does not walk a straight line when it comes to the country’s relationship with alcohol.
Americans have fluctuated between times when whiskey was as common to the breakfast table as coffee and other periods when an evening cocktail was considered a social taboo.
The National Archives Museum is now raising a toast to the nation’s complicated history with booze with the debut of a new exhibit, aptly titled “Spirited Republic.”
“The amount of alcohol we consumed went way up as the society became more individualistic, and the frontier became more prominent,” curator Bruce Bustard told “Power Players” on a sneak peek tour of the exhibit, which opens Friday.
Standing in front of a display that measures how many gallons worth of alcohol the average American drank over time, the year 1830 towers above the rest. “In 1830, we consumed about 7.1 gallons of alcohol per person who was of legal age,” Bustard said.
To put the 1830 figure in perspective, that’s about two-and-half times today’s national average.
