It’s rarely ever intentional. Whether you’ve had a tough week, needed to get out and let loose or just happened to innocently have a little too much white wine with your girlfriends, you are now suffering from the overindulgence. When faced with the flu-like symptoms from drinking too much alcohol what is the best natural cure for a hangover? Here’s your answer.
Generally, the symptoms of a hangover are stemmed from dehydration and insufficient sleep. The headache that most people get with a hangover is from lack of water or any other form of hydration because alcohol dehydrates your system. In addition, usually when people drink too much they often stay up past their bedtime or the alcohol consumption itself interferes with getting a solid night's sleep; which can directly affect your health.
Catching up on your sleep is a given in addition to drinking a glass of water every hour throughout the day. But that can only do so much for the damage that is has already been done. What your body really needs is a good wringing out of the organs through a yoga practice, a detoxification if you will. Since going out is probably the last thing that you want to do, try one of the best yoga DVD’s for home practice.
When hung over skip Bikram or hot yoga as the increased temperature will only cause further dehydration. Revive your aching body and bring clarity to your fuzzy mind with a restorative yoga DVD like Yogalosophy or Skinnygirl yoga. In addition to releasing the built up toxins in your body, the focus on breath will relax and relieve your mind. Another option is to simply practice the following 3 yoga poses known to make everybody feel better.
