 Health Hint #202
How to Head Off a Hangover
Excerpted from "A Year of Health Hints"
365 Practical Ways to Feel Better and Live Longer

Oh, the throbbing head ... the queasy stomach ... the thundering vibrations from the smallest movement. It's the morning after a night of too much to drink, and now you're miserable with a full-blown hangover. You'd be willing to try almost anything to get rid of it.

Unfortunately, the only real cure for a hangover is to wait it out. But meanwhile, you suffer. To ease the discomfort:

Get as much rest as you can.
Avoid bright lights.
Take aspirin (or an aspirin substitute) to help ease the overall ache.

You don't have to suffer a hangover every time you drink, though. These tips can save you a lot of self-induced misery.

Eat a high-fat source of protein, like cheese or meat, to help prevent the nausea or heartburn
associated with drinking.
Avoid drinks that are more likely than others to cause a hangover. Bourbon, scotch, red wine,
and peach schnapps contain congeners, substances that give flavor to liquor and produce longer-
lasting hangovers. In contrast, vodka and gin are low in congeners.
Most important, don't overdo it.
