HANGOVER : THE "H" WORD
“I will never drink again!“ Does this sentence sound familiar?
The holiday season is in full swing and whether you’re psyched for your annual office party or dreading an awkward family dinner, you’ll probably be hitting up a ton of social events. This leads to the enjoyment of a cocktail or a glass of wine, or two… or more… Whoops.
If you’re going to drink alcohol, you probably know already that you should do it in moderation!!!
Although, it’s common to bend or break certain health rules around the holidays, and while occasionally one drink too many won’t necessarily derail your otherwise good intentions, it can leave you feeling miserable.
It’s good to note that for every 2 drinks of alcohol we consume, 1 Liter of water is eliminated from our body. That means those 4 tequila shots that Karen gave you at the bar this weekend removed roughly a 2-liter bottle’s worth of water from your body. Thanks Karen...
Hangover woes mostly come down to dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic that forces us to urinate excessively thus, lose more water. This causes:
· Imbalance of electrolytes
· Terrible headaches
· Dry Mouth
· Nausea & Vomiting
· Impaired Motor Skills & Cognitive Function
When we have a hangover, our body is experiencing minor alcohol withdrawal. Some people think that another round of drinks can cure their hangover, but this only postpones the inevitable. The more we drink the worse nausea and headache become later. So, put down the shot glass and grab a water bottle instead why don’t ya?
