We can compare waking up with hangover like having a bad cold. We really feel low, pain,sickness and confusion.
And precisely today, the first day of the year, we could declare the international day of hangovers.
We have to pay the consequences for our excess. They all depend from the quantity of poison we drink or take. Running to take paracetamol or ibuprofene could make bigger the damage of our liver or kidney and the reason why, is because these painkiller reduce the blood pressure to these organs.
Instead of painkiller I suggest you an antidote, more healthy: yoga.
Beside the rehydration with water, natural juice or other kind of caffeine free drink, practice yoga can speed up your recovery.
Yoga is a fantastic tool to recover from hangover, is a panacea because it frees us from toxins, improving the circulations and the digestive system.
Yoga helps to relieve the body tension, from head to feet, yoga moves the blood so each part of the body have oxygen and feel younger.
If you are a beginner I suggestion to looking for a teacher to help you.
