Hanghover and headache
Here are our tips for too hot after party …
Alcohol related problem is that each person reacts differently and the parameters to be considered are numerous (human face, common use of some alcohols, what we eat in parallel, mixtures, …) . We therefore limit ourselves to give general advice which we could test the efficiency by ourselves!
There is still time …
If so, I assure you, you can drink and party while avoiding being a zombie the next day. For that here are some principles to follow:
Do not drink alcohol too quickly, especially with hungry (I know, it’s not always easy … especially in a Tequila contest !).
Avoid numerous mixtures, including the following:
– Grain alcohol (whiskey, beer, …) / grap alcohol (cognac, wine, …)
– 3 or more types of wine during a meal (dry white, sweet white, rosé, red, Champagne).
Eating while drinking (preferably things that keep the stomach rather than snacks like peanuts).
Go on slowly with egg cocktails or fresh cream.
Too late … I feel I’m going down!
At that moment, all is not lost and there are things that even if they can not go “as before”, will prevent you from being too ill:
Do not throw you on the water bottle (not only the amount of alcohol in the blood will remain the same, but many glasses of water will “inflate” the stomach and make you sick even faster!) Drink some anyway to rehydrate, but not liters.
Force yourself to eat a little even if you’re not hungry (things that hold good stomach, like bread with cheese for example)
Greatly reduce or completely remove the alcohol (especially mixtures)
Now it’s time to breath outside and made several house running laps (you’ll see, it’s good … especially in winter!)
The Next Day’s Zombie :
Dizzy, vision is cloudy, the words sound like gongs, stomach knots made … in short, you have a nice hangover!
Apart from medicines (aspirin, selzer & co) usually prescribed in these circumstances (which are often effective but sometimes cause unwanted side effects), there are “home remedies” that cause generally disgust reactions but are nevertheless beneficial most of the time. We’ll discuss further on this topic. First of all be warned of :
Medicines: alcohol interact negatively with more than 150 medicines, most of which are common use. Avoid medication during the hangover is recommended. To fight against the headache we avoid paracetamol because hepatotoxicity could be enhanced by alcool’s metabolism. ibuprofen, aspirin or naproxen: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory are effective against headache but may aggravate gastritis; further taking aspirin abruptly increases the alcohol content in the blood, and therefore its toxicity.
I personally take a cut beer with a little fruit juice, and it is often enough to take off my hangover.
The term dedicated to drinks is adequate “revivers corpse” (“revitalizing corpses”). Generally based on strong and bitter liqueurs alcohols plants, they are a common opinion and beefy foul. However, they tend to annihilate hangover … although sometimes they are worse! Fernet Branca also seems to do sometimes miracles …
In all cases the best is always to see a doctor !!!
