Hangover Remedies

Going out and having a few drinks every now and then is not a bad thing. In fact, drinking some red wine with your dinner is suppose to be good for the heart. However, it is very easy to overdo it when it comes to alcohol. That is normally because we drink when we gather with other people. Thus, we get carried away and drink too much. When you do, you can bet that you are going to wake up with a  hangover.

This is what happens when you have too much alcohol consumption. Most of the time, you can not tell when you have had too much. Normally you will find out in the morning if you have a hangover or not. There are a lot of hangover cures out there and some different home remedies for hangovers, but overall the best way to fix a hangover is to not get one.

Prevalence

So who can get hangovers? Well, pretty much anyone that drinks, meaning that in a perfect world, no one under 21 would ever have a hangover. However, if you look at it from a real world point of view, anyone can get hangovers. This goes for men and women of all ages. Hangovers differ for everyone. For example, if you do not drink a lot, then you have a lot of drinks one night, the next morning you are going to feel pretty bad.

Symptoms

The symptoms that come with the hangover are the worst part about the whole thing. In fact, sometimes the symptoms that come with your hangover are so bad that you never want to drink again. The most common symptoms are things like headache and nausea. The level and degree of your headache and nausea are going to be determined by how much you had to drink the past night. Other things that are likely to accompany the hangover are irritability and red eyes. Other people even get photophobia.

Diagnosis

You do not need a doctor to diagnosis a hangover, although sometimes you are going to feel like you need to go see one. To tell you the truth, there is not much that a doctor can do to help you get over your hangover. If you go in and tell him your symptoms, he will simply ask if you were drinking the night before. If you said yes, then he is going to tell you to sleep it off.

Treatment

There are some hangover treatments that you can use. However, most of these just take care of the symptoms; they do not fix the hangover. The only thing that is going to get rid of the hangover is time. One of your best friends during a hangover is going to be pain relievers. These will help with your headaches. It's also a good idea to take some antacids and drink a lot of fluids. In fact, drinking a lot of water can actually help to control your headaches as well. Last, but not least, you need to get a lot of rest. There is no better cure for hangovers than to get rest. The further you get from your drunken night, the less your hangover will hurt. Do keep in mind that just because your hangover is gone, does not mean that it won't come back.

Home Remedies

Home remedies for hangovers differ from one person to another. One of the worst hangover treatments is to drink the same thing that you drunk the night before. People call this, “the hire of the dog that bit you.” However, this can just make your hangover come back later on. One good thing to do is to drink some cola. This is going to help with the nausea. Next, you should eat just a dry piece of toast. It is very important to keep something on your stomach. If you are able to keep something down, you will feel less stick to your stomach. Taking in some potassium is a good idea as well. One good way to do that is to eat some bananas. You should also try to take something that has vitamin C in it. Whenever you go drinking, your body depletes it's own Vitamin C. Thus, you should put some back in. Last, but not least, nothing says relief like a hot steamy bath. This can actually help you sweat out some of the toxins.

Conclusion

Overall, hangover home remedies are pretty easy to use. That is a good thing, because when you have a hangover, thinking is the last thing that you want to do. Try to limit the amount of drinks that you have. If you can do that, then you can avoid ever getting the hangover in the first place. Keep your eyes pealed for more hangover remedies. There are a lot of different ones out there, because different things work for different people. Either way, your top concern is going to be getting over your hangover.
