hang over remedies.....



What is a Hangover?
A hangover, or veisalgia, is the unpleasant effects following heavy consumption of alcohol. Hangovers can last up to two or three days after excessive alcohol is consumed. Common symptoms of a hangover include headache, nausea, lethargy, dysphoria, sensitivity to light and/or noise, and thirst.
There are some lucky people who never experience a hangover! Around 25 to 30% of drinkers do not suffer hangover symptoms. It is said people with allergies to wheat, barley, corn, or yeast often have the worst hangovers.
A persons weight is a major factor in how your body absorbs alcohol, the less you weigh the more you'll feel it. Plus the older you are, the more you will feel the effects of alcohol consumption the next morning.

What Causes a Hangover?
Acetaldehyde intoxication, hypoglycemia, dehydration, and vitamin B12 deficiency are all known to be causes of hangover symptoms.
As well as being toxic, alcohol due to the ethanol (a diuretic) contained in it, has a dehydrating effect by causing increased urine production, which causes headaches, dry mouth, and lethargy. This diuretic also causes dehydration and metabolic disturbance, especially of the kidneys, as alcohol will cause the kidneys to stop absorbing water and send it to the bladder instead. This causes your brain to become dehydrated and it starts to shrink, causing your brain to stretch away from the inside of your skull, this is where the hangover headache comes into play. This can be somewhat helped by drinking water or an oral electrolyte solution after heavy consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Nausea is often a characteristic of a hangover and is caused by the alcohol's effect on the stomach lining. Because of the increased NADH production during metabolism of ethanol, excess NADH can build up and slow down gluconeogenesis in the liver, thus causing hypoglycemia, also called low blood sugar, which occurs when your blood glucose or blood sugar level drops too low to provide enough energy for your body's activities.
Another factor contributing to a hangover are the products from the breakdown of ethanol via liver enzymes. This diverts pyruvate from other pathways such as gluconeogenesis impairing the ability of the liver to supply glucose to tissues, especially the brain. As glucose is the primary energy source of your brain, a lack of glucose will contribute to a hangover causing symptoms such as weakness, mood disturbances, fatigue, and decreased concentration or attention.
The presence of other alcohol by products of the fermentation stage in producing alcoholic drinks may exaggerate a hangover, which accounts for the mitigation of the effects when distilled alcohol, particularly vodka, is consumed.
Removal of the depressive effects of alcohol in your brain accounts for noise and light sensitivity.

Which Alcoholic Drinks Cause the Worst Hangovers?
Avoid drinks that contain large amounts of congeners, as these cause more severe hangovers. Generally, these are dark colored drinks like red wine, brandy, and port. The darker the alcohol, the worse the hangover is the saying. Organic wine and spirits are said to be a little easier on your system.
a) Pure ethanol
b) Vodka
c) Tequila
d) Champagne
e) Gin
f) White wine
g) Whisky
h) Rum
i) Red wine
j) Brandy
k) Cheap and nasty booze.

Tips to Prevent Hangovers:
1/ Before you start drinking alcohol:
a) Drinking on an empty stomach will get you drunk much more quickly. Try lining your stomach with a large glass of milk, garlic, milk thistle, or even junk food, as food especially dairy products help slow the absorption of alcohol into your system as fat is digested slowly, and will protect the stomach from the irritating effects of alcohol. If there is food in your stomach, it will take a lot longer for the alcohol to reach your small intestine, meaning it will take longer for you to get drunk!
b) It has been said that an extract of prickly pear may decrease the effects of congeners (toxic chemicals that are formed during alcohol fermentation - found in tequila, wine and whiskey drinks). However, it needs to be taken several hours before you start drinking.
c) Drink lots of water before the party or your night out. If you start your night dehydrated, it will only get worse with the more alcohol you consume.
d) Try taking 50 milligrams of Vitamin B6 before leaving home, carry another 50 milligrams with you and take with water around 2 - 3 hours later at the party, and take another 50 milligrams of B6 with a glass of water when you get home.
e) Before you go to bed eat a large plate of Nachos chips with cheese and a lot of jalapeno peppers. Drink a large glass of water with this.
f) Take milk thistle tablets before you go out, your hangover will be considerably reduced. Milk thistle is natural and helps the liver to process alcohol.
2/ As you are drinking:
You can certainly lessen the effects of developing a hangover by taking some preventative measures before start drinking.
a) Try drinking one soft drink or drink a glass full of water after every 2 to 3 alcoholic drinks.
b) Stick with one kind of alcohol as mixing your drinks will certainly increase your chances of getting a hangover.
c) Keep your salt levels up by snacking on peanuts and crisps or chips
d) Take that next dose of Vitamin B6 with lots of water about 2 - 3 hours after you left home.
e) If your urine is a darkish color then you are already becoming dehydrated, so have another large glass of water before you resume drinking.
3/ When you get back home:
a) Take another dose of Vitamin B6 with lots and lots of water.
b) Eat a light meal with a glass of orange juice to raise your blood sugar level and the vitamin C in the orange juice will help your liver process the alcohol.

Alphabetical List of Home Remedy Hangover Cures:
Acetylcysteine - There are claims that N-acetylcysteine can relieve or prevent the symptoms of hangovers through scavenging of acetylaldehyde.
Alka Seltzer or Resolve - Said to work quickly in curing a hangover, well worth a try.
Aspirin - Helps your headache but unfortunately doesn't help with the level of alcohol in your system.
Bananas - Bananas contain a natural antacid to help with nausea, and are high in magnesium which helps relax the hammering blood vessels causing your hangover headache.
Barley grass - Barley grass juice 24:1 extract powder can substantially mitigate hangover effects experienced by people suffering from acute alcohol toxicity.
Berocca - Containing vitamin B complex, vitamin C, and calcium supplements. Berocca will put vitamin B back in your system, as well as the large glass of water it is mixed with.
Bloody Mary - Ingredients for Bloody Mary Hangover Cure: 2 oz Vodka - 6 oz Tomato Juice - 4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce - 2 to 3 drops Tabasco sauce - Stick of celery. The tomato juice and celery in the Bloody Mary are full of vitamins.
Cabbage - Eating raw cabbage has been used throughout history for preventing and curing hangovers.
Calcium - Drink a glass of milk, water and orange juice. The Calcium, re-hydration properties, plus the vitamin C contained is found to combat the symptoms of a hangover if taken shortly after consumption of alcohol.
Charcoal tablets - Congeners are absorbed by activated charcoal, so if you take some activated charcoal tablets before going to bed, your body may absorb some of the congeners before they do damage.
Chaser - Definitely alleviates the dizziness the following day.
Chili Peppers - A bowl full of hot and spicy chili works as chili peppers help the body fight the free radicals that come from drinking.
Clam chowder - If you find a place that has clam chowder or don't feel up to making your own then buy the Campbell 's Chunky Soup version. Eat it with pepper then take an hours nap.
Coffee - A weak cup of coffee the morning after is okay but lots of caffeine will dehydrate you even more. Try coffee with honey instead of sugar as fructose is absorbed quicker than sugar.
Cysteine - Consumption of foods such as eggs, which contain cysteine, and water help replenish lost moisture and at re-hydrate the body, making a hangover shorter.
Evening Primrose Oil - A few capsules of evening primrose oil or flaxseed oil, both rich sources of essential fatty acids, will also help to reduce the effects of over indulgence.
Exercise - After heavy intoxication light jogging or some form of exercise helps the heart pump blood around the body and increases the amount of oxygen in the body.
Firecracker - A 50/50 mix of Tequila and Tabasco sauce in a shot glass will clear the head in no time.
Fresh air - Light exercise in the fresh air will do wonders towards curing your hangover.
Gatorade - Drink a sports drink like Gatorade, Lucozade or Powerade as sports drinks contain everything you need to help fight the effects of a hangover.
Ginseng - As caffeine is a diuretic like alcohol, it will make the dehydration worse, so try ginseng instead.
Glutamine - Improves nitrogen balance, enhances the rate of protein synthesis, supports immune cells, and maintains integrity of the mucosa.
Green tea - Try drinking a large cup of green tea first thing in the morning.
Magnesium - Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to a magnesium deficiency, or reduce levels of magnesium, as well as depleting zinc and other minerals causing individuals with lower magnesium levels to experience more severe hangovers. The hangover symptoms of headache, and light and sound sensitivity, are very similar to those of migraine. Some scientists hypothesize that a hangover may be exhibiting at least some symptoms of an acute magnesium deficiency.
Milkshake or Smoothies - A Milkshake will calm your stomach and help relax you. Drink while eating a greasy hamburger.
Minerals - Eat mineral rich food like pickles, pickle juice, or canned fish such as tuna or sardines.
Multivitamins - Take extra multi B vitamins and drinks a lot of water. A well rounded multivitamin pill with riboflavin, potassium, calcium, thiamine, magnesium and zinc and a high dose of Vitamin B12 will help cure a hangover.
Opioid - Codeine, dihydrocodeine, tilidine and other such medication directly work against many of the effects of alcohol hangover. However the FDA says if you combine over the counter pain killers with alcoholic drinks to ward off a hangover it can lead to stomach bleeding. Also be sure not to take Acetaminophen or Tylenol as studies have proven acetaminophen can damage your liver when mixed with alcohol.
Orange Juice - Drink orange juice for the Vitamin C content which will aid the liver to break down the alcohol in your system.
Oxygen - Oxygen can also reduce the symptoms of hangovers sometimes caused by alcohol consumption. The theory is that the increased oxygen flow resulting from oxygen therapy improves the metabolic rate, and thus increases the speed at which toxins are broken down.
Peach Syrup - Drink the peach syrup from a can of peaches as it raises your blood sugar level.
RU 21 - Touted as the first supplement specifically intended for those who like to enjoy alcohol responsibly, without the unpleasant side effects.
Sauna - Get yourself all hot and sweaty in the sauna for about 10 to15 minutes, then take a cold shower or better still jump into freezing water immediately afterwards.
Sex - Have sex the morning after as sex burns calories, and makes you sweat out the alcohol, plus if feels really good.
Shower - Take a shower constantly switching between cold and hot water.
Sleep - Give your body a chance to recover - go back to bed!
Sodium bicarbonate - A heaped teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water helps with the nausea feeling, and gets rid of alcoholic shakes or anxiety feeling associated with having a hangover.
Succinic acid - There is evidence that succinic and fumaric acid accelerate the decomposition of acetaldehyde (known as the chemical that causes hangovers).
Vegemite on toast - Vegemite is known for its very high vitamin B content and the salt in the Vegemite will help replenish your body's salt level.
Vitamin B6 - Studies have shown that Vitamin B6 reduces hangovers.
Water - Keep drinking lots of water throughout the day to rehdydrate your body. But avoid drinking coffee as it is a diuretic and can make your hangover worse. Green or ginger tea will also help with a headache and nausea feelings.

top 5 cancer causing foods..


1. Hot dogs
Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.



2. Processed meats and bacon
Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.



3. Doughnuts
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.



4. French fries
Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .



5. Chips, crackers, and cookies
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS


1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.

2. Not urinating in the morning.

3. Too much eating.

4. Skipping breakfast.

5. Consuming too much medication.

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.

8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'

going bananas

A non-political discourse on bananas

A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class told his class about bananas. He said the expression 'going bananas' is from the effects of bananas on the brain. Read on:



Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!
This is interesting.
After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid pa nic -induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chro nic ler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nic otine withdrawal.

Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

Strokes: According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A banana a day keeps the doctor away!'
