First of all, you should try to avoid getting a hangover in the first place by
  • Pacing yourself as you're drinking
  • Not drinking all well spirits
  • Drinking plenty of water before, during, and after drinking
  • Having a full stomach before or during drinking

But if the dreaded hangover does occur, avoid eating anything too heavy or rich.  Aim for light, natural and unprocessed, like green salads, fruit salads, tea, and fresh squeezed juices.  If you've got plans for the day and need a serious caffeine boost, then throw an energy drink, like Red Bull, into the mix.

Also, as the old adage goes, a little hair of the dog may help, which is why the Bloody Mary is such a popular brunch drink.  Another remedy is to take milk thistle tablets before passing out as it is said to boost your liver function.

From what I hear, activated charcoal capsules and or apple cider vinegar should fix you right up.

Milk (water early in the hangover state will make you drunk again), chicken noodle soup (to replace needed salt and potassium), bananas (more potassium which you lose when you drink), and any other fruit (which helps speed up the metabolism of alcohol). I always have a Gatorade or Vitamin Water because it always helps- don't know if it's the electrolytes or psychosomatic but, it always helps me!

Oxygen will sure help, as an ex commercial and technical diver (also a lover of fine pizza) we found when we were going to have to work if we would breath 5 -10 litres of O2 for 5 - 1- minutes it helped a lot. I agree on all of devora points as well, people do not drink enough water. Water, not tea, pop, coffee, etc. Chris Popispizza

I've always thought drinking tons of water helped, but then I read somewhere that can actually worsen the nausea, so I guess it depends on your symptoms. If the headache is the main issue, then water should help.

I have a friend who swears by burnt toast. I always go for ice cream or watermelon.
