 Hangover

 

l     After the celebration, drink a large glass of water before you go to bed, take a B-complex supplement that supplies at least 50 mg of niacin, and take a liquid bitters preparation (look for products that contain dandelion, gentian, mugwort, or Angostura bitters) in water with a little honey. This may lessen the pain you'll feel the next day.

l     Before you go to sleep, take two spoonfuls of honey and rub cut lemons under your arms.  Sounds crazy, but it works.

l     When you wake up drink lots of fruit juice.

l     One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milk shake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

l     Another great tip is to eat watermelon

l     Do NOT take aspirin - when you mix the two, your liver releases bad toxins and in long term it will lead to liver damage, in addition to irritating your stomach.  If you must take a pain reliever, ibuprofen is gentler and works much better too.

l     Willow - The bark of this group of trees contains the same pain-relieving ingredient found in aspirin in much smaller amounts, so it may be less stressful on your stomach. You'll also find a similiar pain-relieving compounds in wintergreen. To make a tea, use the bark of willow or the leaves and flowering tops of wintergreen. Typical dosage: 1 to 3 cups of tea per day (steep 1/4 to 1/2 of powdered bark or wintergreen leaves and flowers in 1 cup of hot water for 10 - 15 minutes).

l     Dandelion - This bitter herb's root may help hangovers by gently relieving constipation and stomachaches. It also stimulates the liver, which may have a beneficial effect on alcohol metabolism. And dandelion is a good source of antioxidants, such as vitamin A, that may help repair some of the damage the activities wreaked on your body. Typical dosage: 2 cups of tea per day, morning and evening(steep 1 to 2 tsp of dried root in 1 cup of hot water for 10 to 15 minutes); or 30 to 60 drops of tincture 3x's per day for the day or two that symptoms persist.

l     Ginkgo - Typically used to improve circulation, improve memory, and decrease dizziness, gingko may help with hangover. In Japan, the seeds of this tree are served at cocktail parties to prevent drunkenness and hangovers. Typical dosage: three 40 mg capsules per day.

l     Red or Chili Peppers - Hot peppers contain the pain-relieving compound capsaicin. Try dried, ground peppers or powdered cayenne in a glass of tomato juice the morning after. But keep this Bloody Mary a virgin: Fighting a hangover with another drink only delays your body's recovery. Typical dosage: a pinch or so in food.

l     Milk Thistle - This herb's seeds have a long history of use in protecting the liver. It contains silymarin, which has been shown to protect the liver against a number of toxins, including alcohol. A frequent drinker or recovering alcoholic should take milk thistle on a daily basis. Typical dosage: 70 to 120 mg 3x's a day.  If you are planning a rare, no-holds barred celebration, take 70 to 120 mg once before drinking to help protect your liver.

 Here is another little tip about your toothbrush. Store your toothbrush prope
