Herbal Hangover Remedies

Herbal hangover remedies are not only powerful and effective but also efficient in providing relief from symptoms of a hangover such as stomach upsets and insane headaches.

Think of a hangover in terms of gong through drug withdrawal symptoms just like a drug addict would. Why this occurs is because levels of blood alcohol in the system, which affect the brain, are now sinking following the achieving of high levels of alcohol in the blood. This is the main reason in fact why drinking alcohol the morning after a night of heavy drinking simply temporarily delays the inevitable hangover.......

Symptoms of a Hangover

  • Queasy Stomach and Nausea - This occurs because the stomach lining is irritated by alcohol. Many also experience vomiting.
  • Never ending intense headaches
  • General weakness and trembling
  • Irritability
  • Some people experience an overwhelming feeling of misery
  • Mental fogginess

What Aggravates Hangovers?

Dehydration and low blood sugar levels is responsible for many symptoms. However, there are ways in which you can avoid including (and most important) taking a lot of water and light meals.

While overindulging in alcohol is the solely responsible, what are some things that make a hangover worse?

  • Drinking alcohol on an empty school. Its important to eat before, during and after drinking as the food taken slows down the absorption of alcohol in the blood.
  • Smoking makes hangovers worse as it adds toxins and dehydration to the body to toxins and dehydration that are already in the body because of alcohol
  • Lack of Sleep - It is important to get a lot of sleep following a heavy night of drinking
  • Mixing Drinks - Taking different types of alcoholic beverages as you drink is considered a prime reason for bad hangovers
  • Aspirin - Stay away from aspirins of any form as it irritates the stomach lining.
