How To Get Rid Of Hangover?
Family celebrations, corporate parties, friendly gatherings, business meetings ... There may be plenty of reasons for a feast, but reckless holiday fun often turns into severe hangover that occurs the next morning ... Where does hangover come from? An excess of alcohol in the blood leads to the fact that the enzyme systems cease to cope, effectively detoxify ethanol, turning it into safe substances. There is an accumulation of acetaldehyde - the most dangerous toxin. It is it which is the cause of the euphoria from alcohol, as well as the source of morning sickness, headache, dry mouth, dehydration, and other unpleasant symptoms of hangover.
Scientists are unanimous: acetaldehyde is many times more toxic than alcohol itself! An even more painful hangover is caused by drinks containing sugar and various impurities, including fusel oils, which are a by-product of fermentation. These specific additives are found in whiskey, tequila, cognac, and dessert wines and cocktails contain excess amounts of sugar. How to get rid of hangover, and overcome the consequences of this unpleasant condition?
Emergency measures: the best cure for a hangover.
The general rule of thumb is to forget about the fundamental principle of homeopathy about "treating something with the like." You absolutely shouldn’t drink alcohol when you already have hangover! But if you cannot cope with ill health with simple home methods: sour drinking, a hearty hot dinner, it is reasonable to resort to the help of medicines.
In fact, drunkenness is poisoning, and hangovers are a consequence of intoxication. Headache is the main manifestation of excessive libation. Aspirin copes well with it, which at the same time prevents the blood from clotting. Alcohol is known to be an excellent diuretic. It removes significant volumes of fluid from the body, increasing the viscosity and density of the blood. As a result, blood clots can form, provoking a blockage of blood vessels. Remedies with acetylsalicylic acid can save you from the consequences that are much more serious than a headache. As for drinks, tea brewed with ginger root, alkaline mineral water ("Essentuki", "Borjomi", etc.) in a volume twice the usual daily rate will be of invaluable benefit.
Cleaning up the stomach and intestines
Another hangover problem is indigestion. Containing alcohol in high concentration, strong alcohol drinks can inhibit the vital activity of beneficial bacteria that live in the intestines. As a result, the balance of microflora is disturbed. This leads to discomfort, bloating, and erratic stools. The use of fermented milk products: kefir, ayran, yogurt can cope with the unpleasant problem. These drinks contain a lot of useful bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. Absorbents will help weaken the effect of toxic substances on the intestinal microbial flora: Lignosorb, Liferan, Smecta, Polyphepan, Enterosgel, Polysorb. They are able to cleanse the body effectively, neutralizing foreign components. In addition, alcohol has the ability to stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which leads to heartburn, and in some cases to exacerbation of gastritis, ulcers. Antacids will help you get rid of a hangover and overcome discomfort. Such remedies as "Almagel", "Rutacid", "Phosphalugel" "extinguish" excess acidity in the stomach, eliminating painful symptoms.
Let’s help your liver
Taking hepatoprotectors (remedies with milk thistle) may help "repair" the liver, which was subjected to extreme stress during the holiday feasts. Even with the worst state of health, movement is the best way to quickly "disperse" toxins, so it is better not to lie down for a long time, but, having taken a contrast shower, get out into the fresh air.
What you should not do when you have hangover: you should not take alcohol, energy drinks, drink coffee, smoke, go to the bathhouse. It will only get worse. * Before taking any medications, you need to consult a specialist. We recommend that you read labels, warnings and directions of all products before use.
