The Man Who Spent a Decade Traveling the World in Search of a Hangover Cure - VICEPenguin Books. He gorges on single-malt Scotch in Las Vegas, swallows a dozen pints of ale in a series of English pubs, binges on tequila and collapses beside a cactus near the Mexican border, wears lederhosen to a German beer festival and so forth. According to Bishop-Stall, a hangover is composed of two forces combining to form a third force of great evil, like warm water and a storm cluster smashing together into a hurricane. One of the forces is dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic, which is the reason the bathroom lines in bars are so long and why you wake up from a binge gasping for water.

For most people, a hangover after a night of drinking is a painful few hours you don't want to remember. But for one man, finding a cure for the hangover turned into a career. Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall embarked on a decade-long quest and traveled to over 35 countries to find a cure for the hangover, and he wasn't just popping Advil or chugging Pedialyte. Bishop-Stall, a journalist , went to extreme lengths — from jumping off the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas the resulting adrenaline spike, he says, 'blew the hangover' right out of him to diving into frigid glacier water in which a 'fight of flight' response led to sobering effects — and interviewed dozens of experts in various fields to find a remedy. While dehydration is commonly believed to be the root cause of a hangover — which is often accompanied by pounding headaches, nausea and the shakes — Bishop-Stall says it's a bit more involved than that.
There is a single remedy that he now swears by.
Bishop-Stall talked with us from Toronto about bullshit remedies, the healing powers of Marmite, getting buried under hay in the Alps, and the one hangover cure he swears by. Alcohol has always been, and remains, perhaps the most mysterious molecule in the universe when it comes to the human point of view. We still know so little about it. This is where things get trippy. But perhaps their wisest practice was to have two sleeps. In his travels, Bishop-Stall didn't just figure out the best ways to combat hangovers.
