What is a hangover — no need to explain to anyone. In the words of Mikhail Zadornov, a Russian national holiday is celebrated in the morning. Only this holiday is usually sad — head hurts, body refuses to obey, and the sounds and smells around annoy, oppress and drive in despair.
Struggling with a hangover all
— So, what exactly is a hangover?
— First of all I will say that there are two conditions that must be split between them. Hangover in healthy people — is a consequence of intoxication with ethanol and its decay products. The peculiar effects of excess alcohol in the body. Hangover same in alcohol addicted people — this withdrawal syndrome, caused by lack of alcohol in the body.
And then, and another state is proceeding quite hard, but in the second case there is a pronounced need to improve their physical condition of taking alcohol.
— What does the hangover of a healthy person?
— The fact that the dose of alcohol, adopted the day before, exceeds all reasonable limits. However, the hangover is still kind of alarm, especially when it happens regularly.
Frequently recurring hangover indicates that the person is not in control of himself, in addition, to achieve the necessary "condition" is required each time increasing dose. And this is a form of the disease symptoms are typical of the first stage of alcoholism.
— And as a hangover occurs in alcohol-dependent people?
— Typically, patients do not stand up and take alcohol, pohmelyalis. A vicious circle: the hangover — opohmelenie — intoxication — a hangover. Often ends in such a roundabout heavily. Pohmelyatsya people can sometimes for months, especially during long holidays. It's a disease and it should be treated — display of binge and get rid of alcohol addiction.
— Can people overcome their own hangover?
— Healthy people — of course. Unless, of course, these are isolated cases. They usually drink pickle, take cold showers, sleep off — everyone has their own recipes. Some even have a small amount of alcohol — and it helps them.
With sick people more difficult. First of all, alcoholics often do not consider themselves sick and the healthy drink. A morning hungover state explain confluence of a number of circumstances — vodka Palen, magnetic storm, little snacks, etc. Such people can not stop drinking on their own (with very few exceptions), and they need medical care.
— What are the other cases require a doctor's help?
— Healthy people — in the event that all tested hangover did not help. In addition, after 40 years, virtually every acquires a bouquet of various chronic diseases — whether it's diabetes, heart disease or hypertension. Hangover against such diseases is fraught with very serious consequences — even death. In this case, a doctor's help will be totally superfluous.
Patients also need people to help professionals in any way. For them, the only way to get rid of the hangover — is to stop drinking. In the first stage of the disease it can be done with a minimum of medical exposure and with a very persistent effect, it is a pity that at this stage there speaks no more than 1% of patients.
Unfortunately, people are very quick to cross boundaries between the stages, and began to celebrate the New Year, go on a binge for a week, or even for the whole of January. This is a more serious condition, and the treatment takes much longer.
— You talked about the recipes of a hangover. What can you advise?
— Actually, no common recipe does not exist and can not exist. The Hangover — a very individual response and the fact that one has helped, the second with a fairly high degree of probability will not help. The same pickle — yes, it contains magnesium and potassium, but it makes up for the loss of fluid. But it does not help everyone.

The only thing to remember — during a hangover body is very sensitive to any kind of external influences and stimuli. If it is possible — it is best to lie down. Need to listen to your body — if you have the appetite, you can eat, no appetite — starve.
Not so long ago, British researchers examined the most popular recipes from a hangover, and came to the same conclusion that I have already announced — indeed there is no effective means to overcome the hangover.
— So what do you do?
— It's very simple — do not get drunk to the point. And if such a situation is repeated, it makes sense to seek help
