Alcohol Detox After The New Year Party

Aug 17, 2007
The parties over the New Year are over. You have had a merry time with your family and friends. But you are now suffering from the effects of having one glass of wine too many. A splitting headache and stomach pains are making you sick and miserable.

You long to be up and about. So what remedies are available for a faster recovery?

Firstly, if you are throwing up, then it is good sign. Your body is rejecting the alcohol in your body. It is far better to remove it rather than have it in your body.

You are likely to be dehydrated. Alcohol makes you visit the toilet more often. When your organs get deprived of water, they try to take their water supply from elsewhere, including the brain cells. You get a hangover headache when your brain starts to shrink due to water loss.

Hence, the obvious remedy is to load up on liquids. Drink plenty of water in the next 1-2 days, so that it also enhances the flushing out of the toxins from your body.

Liquids can be taken in several forms. The first is obviously warm water. Warm water helps to calm your drugged stomach. Cold water just won't do. Add a touch of lemon to help you calm your stomach.

You can also take warm water in a herbal detox tea concoction. A favourite Ayurvedic herbal recipe for this: boil some cumin, coriander and fennel in boiling water and then drink. This recipe helps to soothe your gastric pains and to aid in digestion. Also a good suggestion is to try mint tea to settle your upset stomach.

Instead of stuffing more food into your stomach over the next few days, try juices. Freshly squeezed juices help to ensure that you are still packed with vitamins while your stomach takes a break. Vegetable juices are excellent as an aid in calming your stomach. Do not however buy the juices in a packet.

Get sufficient rest and sleep while your body enzymes process the alcohol in your system. Alcohol does make you feel sleepy so it is important to obey your body's call for rest.

Obviously, you should abstain from consuming more alcoholic drinks while your body recovers. Slowly ease into a healthy diet. The next time you drink, remember about what you feel the morning after. Drink one glass less and you will thank me for it.
