NEW YEAR’S EVE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER WHICH MEANS PLENTY OF PARTYERS WILL BE OUT DRINKING , A FEW THINGS PEOPLE MAY BE FEELING IT THE NEXT DAY. WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR BODY DURING A HANGOVER? GOOD QUESTION, THIS IS ENTERED NEW YEAR’S EVE ON 2016. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HANGOVERS, ARE ANY OF YOU EXPERTS? I AM. I HAD ONE FOR A 21st BIRTHDAY. DOCTOR GAVIN IS AN ADDICTION SPECIALIST. IT IS KIND OF LIKE HAVING THE FLU. ALCOHOL AND IT RELEASES ALL KINDS OF CHEMICALS IN THE BODY THAT CAUSES HEADACHES AND NAUSEA. THE RESULTS OF THE DEHYDRATION. IT IS A DIURETIC. IT RELEASES A HORMONE THAT HELPS US RELIEF WATER. PEOPLE NOTICE THAT THEY HAVE TO TAKE A LOT OF TRIPS TO THE RESTROOM. DO YOU DO THE ONE GLASS OF WINE, ONE GLASS OF WATER? THAT WILL BE HELPFUL. HERE IS ANOTHER THING, WHEN THE LIVER BREAKS DOWN THE ALCOHOL, IT CREATES ACID WHICH CAN ALSO LEAD TO NAUSEA AND HEADACHES. IT IS CHEMICALS WITHIN THE ALCOHOLS ITSELF PLUS METABOLIZING IT AS WELL. THERE’S A LOT GOING ON? YES. I ALCOHOL CAN CAUSE A HANGOVER, BUT BROWN LIQUORS HAVE DIFFERENT COMPONENTS AND CAN MAKE YOU SLIGHTLY MORE STRICT. IS THERE A CURE FOR A HANGOVER? PREVENTION. PREVENTION IS THE ONLY CURE. I’VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY ALL SORTS OF CRAZY THINGS, CAFFEINE, VITAMINS, OR ANOTHER DRINK? NONE OF THOSE ARE PROVEN. TIME AND WATER.
