TGIF. It’s the crazy night out with the girls, or buddies are getting together for some massive party session. You just want to get wasted after a long week. What about the post party syndrome now? The head is aching like some little goblins are hammering it inside, and the neck hurts for the slightest movement after the previous night head banging. I certainly wouldn’t want to go on about the feet, ankles & tummy etc..

 

Drinking alcohol in moderation is fine for a once in a while treat. Excessive alcohol consumption has been linked to various conditions such as heart & liver failure, high blood pressure, digestive disorder, stomach ulcer, brain damage, reduced fertility, and even death. Drink responsibly!

Liquor Types

Top Hangover Cure

  1. Lots & lots of Water! – This remedy starts as soon as you’re done drinking. Just before you hit the bed. Alcohol really dehydrates your body and it’s important to rehydrate back

  2. The big breakfast– try eggs, bacon, & toast. Eggs have been researched to have ‘cysteine’, which has detoxification properties on alcohol intake. Bacon is high in protein which helps the recovery of brain functioning, and carbohydrates in the toast will increase the sugar level while providing the energy you need to function

  3. Banana – this fruit is known for its high content of potassium & magnesium which are essential to be replaced as alcohol drains lots of vitamins and minerals from your body. The natural sugar or fructose in the banana helps to process the alcohol faster

  4. Electrolyte drink – such as Gatorade or Coconut water will help treat the general loss of electrolytes & help to address the imbalance of potassium & sodium. It would also help in the rehydration process

  5. Orange juice – helps with replacement of Vitamin C & potassium that is lost. Orange juice also takes away the alcohol feel from your mouth

  6. Cheeseburger – this food will really boost your appetite to eat the morning after, plus it contains beef for the protein source, bread for instance energy & pickles to heighten your taste buds

  7. Spicy soup or curry – the hotness of chili and other spices will help to incite your system and beat sluggishness. Try it with some carbohydrates such as pita bread or rice to give the instant energy boost

  8. Vitamins – almost all types of vitamins are lost from alcohol consumption, thus its best to pop in a multivitamin pill the night before sleeping

  9. Painkillers – if you’ve been mixing your drinks or downing up fast enough to give you an instant sting of joy to your head, you’re almost sure of the headache that is to follow. Aspirin works best but be sure to take it after food so it doesn’t hurt your stomach. To be taken the night before and morning after.

  10. Sleep over it – rest is most important as the body needs time to clean up toxins. If you’re drinking on a workday late night, try taking some time-off to sleep through before going back to work

Tips to reduce health risk when drinking

  • Drink a glass of water for every glass of alcohol as it slows alcohol absorption to the body. This way, you can make sure your intake is reasonable and you’ll not be over dehydrated
  • Fill your stomach before drinking to avoid gastrointestinal problems. Alcohol is a high acidity food that can damage your stomach lining
  • Stick to one type of drink. Mixing drinks increases your tendencies to drink more and having a worse hangover the morning after
  • Don’t drink when you’re on medications, antibiotics or other drugs. Alcohol is known to interact with other drugs and can cause serious health problems including death
  • Choose clear liquors such as vodka, gin or white wine over dark ones such as whiskey, brandy or rum. Clear liquors have less congeners(a toxic chemical)
  • Don’t leave your drinks unattended to avoid risk of your drinks being spiked
  • To avoid your excess heat in your body, take a cold shower in the morning after your drinking session. This would also help you feel sober faster
  • Get a non-drinking friend to drive or take cab home. Do not think you’d be able to drive when you can’t even walk straight
  • Know your limits of drinking. Stop immediately or take lots of water when you feel you’re not in control of yourself anymore. Moderation is the key to everything

    Be hangover free
