Hangovers- part 2:

Hangovers from alcohol have long been blamed on dehydration and the body’s attempts to detoxify your system from the alcohol.  Robert Switt M.D. at Brown University Center for Alcohol and Addiction studies also explains that alcohol increases acid production in the stomach and irritates the lining.  He recommends toast with honey and to steer clear of greasy or fatty foods when suffering from a hangover.  They irritate the stomach.  Rehydrate with water and take ibuprofen.

In the future, always start your evening with a big glass of water.  Then try drinking mixed drinks with diet sodas.  It generally cuts down on the total ounces of alcohol consumed (when drinking moderately).  Dr. Swift recommends steering clear of dark liquor because they contain “congeners, or chemicals produced during the fermentation process that are to blame for many hangover symptoms.”

Try to steer away from Cosmopolitans, screwdrivers, margaritas and any other drink with a sugar syrup base.  They are loaded with calories and sugar (obviously).  The sugar makes you want to eat more sugar which may lead you to eat desserts or candy you wouldn’t have otherwise.

Most importantly, PLEASE don’t drink and drive.  Bad choices on a night out on the town can lead to devastation in someone else’s’ family as well as your own.
