Understanding the Effects of Alcohol

When you drink alcohol, it is absorbed through the stomach and small intestine and enters the bloodstream. As it circulates through your body, alcohol affects how your brain functions and changes your mood.

Other factors can influence how severe your hangover is. For example, drinking on an empty stomach allows alcohol to be absorbed faster, which can lead to worse hangovers. Drinking certain types of alcoholic beverages (such as beer or wine) can also make a difference. If you combine alcohol with other drugs or medications, it can increase the intensity of a hangover.

What Hangover Recovery Methods really Work?

Hangovers can be prevented by taking precautions before going out and while you are drinking, such as keeping hydrated, being mindful of how many drinks you have, and eating throughout the evening. If, despite your best efforts, you still wake up with a hangover, here is how to relieve your hangover symptoms.

Drinking fluids also helps flush out toxins from the body and can reduce symptoms like headaches and nausea. It’s important to note that drinking too much alcohol to ‘fix’ a hangover can lead to even worse dehydration and symptoms.
  • Pain Relievers – Taking over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen and aspirin can help reduce hangover headaches. Avoid acetaminophen, as it can negatively interact with any alcohol left in your system.
  • Eat Nutritious Foods – that are high in nutrients and contain vitamins and minerals can help restore body balance and boost energy. Examples of these foods are eggs, nuts, and whole grains.
  • Get Plenty of Sleep – Getting sufficient rest can help the body recover from the effects of alcohol more quickly. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep after a night out to feel better faster.
  • Ginger – has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce nausea associated with hangovers. Drinking ginger tea or taking ginger supplements can help settle an upset stomach and eliminate nausea.
  • Vitamin B – may help to replace lost vitamins and minerals due to excessive drinking and can help reduce fatigue and headaches. Taking vitamin B should be done with food, and it typically takes a few hours to start feeling better.

What to Avoid During a Hangover

  • Drinking Alcohol – Despite its name, ‘The Hair of the Dog’ should be avoided as it only temporarily masks the symptoms of a hangover and can lead to increased dehydration and further intoxication.
  • Caffeine – Although caffeine may seem like a quick fix for a hangover, it can actually worsen dehydration, irritability, headaches, and fatigue.
  • Greasy Foods – Although eating greasy foods may temporarily make you feel better, they can worsen your hangover by exacerbating nausea and stomach issues.

Can a Hangover IV Get Rid of my Hangover Quickly?

Hangover IVs are treatments that involve intravenous hydration, electrolyte replacement, and anti-inflammatory medication that is administered through an IV drip. The combination of the ingredients helps to restore balance to the body and reduce hangover symptoms. This treatment works to reduce hangover symptoms within a few hours.

The B vitamins in an IV solution can help reduce tiredness and fatigue associated with a hangover. Magnesium helps to restore electrolyte levels, while electrolytes help to replenish fluid loss and keep your body hydrated. These ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, allowing for a much faster absorption rate than oral medications. This means that you can feel relief from your hangover symptoms almost immediately after the IV is finished.

How can You Get a Hangover IV?

Depending on where you live, you can visit an IV bar, a clinic, or even get your treatment at home with a house-call doctor or nurse.

Regardless of how you choose to get treatment, the procedure involves inserting a needle into the vein and administering the hangover IV directly into your bloodstream. You may experience some discomfort during the process, but it should subside shortly after the IV is completed. The high absorption rate of intravenous delivery means that these ingredients can begin working faster. Once the IV is finished, you should begin to feel the effects of the solution within an hour or two of treatment.

  • Food - Food high in carbohydrates can help with some of the fatigue and headaches when you have a hangover but it takes some time to be digested and introduced into your blood.
