Hangover Cure, Don’t Bet On Hair-of-the-Dog
Don't make a New Years hangover worse by reaching for a morning cocktail. It won't work according to recent research by Loyola University Health System.More of the same is not the way to go says Dr. Aaron Michelfelder. 'Hair-of-the-dog' could actually make your hangover worse. His recommendations are to pop some ibuprofen, don't drink and drive, and get as much sleep as possible.
He advises, "The morning after: Take another B vitamin, drink lots of water and exercise if you can. During vigorous exercise, blood circulates three times as fast as it does when you are sitting on the couch and the faster you circulate blood through your liver and kidneys, the faster your body will remove the toxins. However, what won't work is more alcohol or coffee."
