Don't Want to Feel 'Green' the Morning After St. Patty's Day? Read This!

Posted By: Sammi Morelli · 3/17/2012 2:13:00 PM

We all know what goes down on St. Patrick's Day…. Copious amounts of alcohol. So to help you prepare, and prevent that green feeling following you into Sunday, I’ve compiled a bunch of tips and tricks from the far reaches of the internets just for you!

 

1) HYDRATE:  It’s super important to keep hydrated, even before you start the drink fest.  Dr. Richard Ash suggests you opt for “alkaline forming Italian sparkling mineral water like Pellegrino. Alcohol is a diuretic, which increases urination and is dehydrating and acidifying. Minerals are alkaline forming and will help replace mineral deficits caused by alcohol consumption.” Also, a formula you can’t go wrong with: For every alcoholic beverage, drink an equal amount of water after.

2) EAT:  It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the day and forget to eat, but it’s important to keep high protein and low glycemic index foods like solid fruits, in your system to avoid a hangover. Dr. Ash explains, “This is important to do especially before going to sleep to prevent hypoglycemia - where you have drops or volatility in blood sugar causing headaches, jitters, heart palpitations, anxiousness, night sweats, shakiness.”

3) BOOST:  It never hurts to add a little vitamin boost to your prevention efforts.  According to Dr. Ash, “The best nutritional solution for treating pain and inflammation caused by an evening of alcohol consumption is taking a buffered, fully reduced, pharmaceutical grade quality, powdered Vitamin C such as the one made by Pure Essentials when combined with Ultra Quercetin (a bioflavonoid) can be a safer alternative to 2 Anacin or 2 Excedrin before going to sleep, as it is an alkaline-forming way to markedly reduce the inflammation which causes the major pain component of the hangover.

4) DON’T MIX: No matter how tempting it may be to veer of the beer track for a colorful shooter, you will regret it in the morning! Osteopath, Vicky Vlachonis suggests sticking to “wine or champagne as these will tend to make you feel less bloated and tired the next day.”

 

Extra Tid-Bits

*Despite some beliefs that time in a sauna or getting your butt out of bed for a work-out actually help in relieving the hangover (don’t you wanna punch those people in the face?) don’t listen to them! Breaking a sweat actually depletes your body of much needed salt and water for your recovery process. Have a warm shower at the most to help refresh.

*One word. GATORADE. (and lots of it)

*If you’re partying it up in da clubs for St. Patty's Day, stay away from well liquors and tap beer. Busier seasons tend to see the tubes and bottles being cleaned less, putting you at greater risk of reacting to the bacteria.

 

Now you won’t end up like these guys!
