Can You Prevent a Hangover from Happening?

Waking up with a hangover is probably one of the worst ways to wake up. No one wants to experience the early morning aches and pains associated with these horrible symptoms. If you had a fun night out with a few drinks and are regretting it in the morning, you are not alone.

Millions of individuals often wonder why they have a hangover in the first place. You may ask yourself, “Did I really drink that much?” or “I should have paid better attention to what I was doing and stopped myself sooner.” Maybe now is a good time to research, learn why you are getting the symptoms, and figure out a way to prevent them from happening so often.

What is a hangover?

A hangover is an unpleasant way your body likes to let you know when you have had too much to drink. After a fun night out, you may wake up with a variety of symptoms such as a headache, nausea, dizziness, and an overall awful achy feeling. You will be reaching for the over-the-counter pain relievers and begging the symptoms to go away.

A hangover can last up to 72 hours for some individuals. The length and severity of your symptoms depend on factors such as your age, how much you drank, any medications you are on, or health conditions.

Waking up with hangover symptoms can ruin your plans for the day and make you not want to leave the bed. Your eyes will be sensitive to light, and even sounds could bother you. Make sure to replenish and rehydrate your body with water and drinks containing electrolytes.

Ways to prevent a hangover

There are a few routines you can start implementing in your daily life to help be proactive in the fight against those nasty hangover symptoms.

Drink plenty of water

The more hydrated you keep your body, the better off you will be at fighting off many illnesses as well as hangover symptoms. Keep a water bottle close by all day, and make sure to have a glass or two of water while you are out with friends enjoying your drinks.

Eat a healthy diet

Yes, even though you don’t drink every day, you should make a point to eat healthy daily. Keeping your body full of healthy foods like fresh fruits and vegetables is a great way to help defend yourself against painful hangovers.

Get your rest

We are all guilty of an active, busy life, and we need our sleep. Be sure to get the recommended amount of sleep every night, which will keep your immune system ready and protected.

Take vitamins

Talk with your doctor about a vitamin routine that is a good fit for your body and in alignment with any health conditions or medications you take.

Moderation is key

Everyone likes to have fun but drinking every day could be more than just wanting a break. Social drinking and keeping the alcohol consumption limited to just moderation are good rules to follow.

Pay attention to what your body is telling you. Know your limits and live a healthy lifestyle, so drinking alcohol occasionally is just a fun thing to do once in a while and not an everyday activity. Your body will thank you later.

What is a hangover IV?

One of the best ways you can fight the symptoms of a hangover rather quickly is to ask for a hangover IV. This type of IV therapy is specifically designed to replenish and detoxify your body of the unhealthy toxins brought on by consuming too much alcohol.

Our hangover IVs are specifically designed with nausea medications and infused with essential fluids, electrolytes, and vitamins that will help you feel the rejuvenating results almost immediately.

Hangover IV treatment works so efficiently because it is administered directly into the bloodstream through an IV, allowing for 100% absorption of the fluids. The IV is given by a registered nurse who will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the entire process.

When you have access to IV hangover treatment, there is no need to worry about looking up home remedies on how to bounce back from a hangover. Home remedies take hours to begin to see results, and sometimes, they don’t work at all.

If you decide to have a fun night out and drink too much, don’t hesitate to get fast, safe and effective results from a hangover IV therapy. Treatments will make you feel better within minutes of getting started, and you will reclaim your plans for the day with no worries.
