What causes a Hangover Headache? 3 things to stop it NOW
Cure for Hangovers
Headaches and stomach aches are both results of dehydration. So what causes dehydration? Drinking, exercising, a day at the beach. Lots of things can cause dehydration. That is why the rule stands that for every alcoholic beverage one finishes, a glass of water should be drank before you go for round two.
A "hangover headache" is actually caused from the brain sagging due to lack of hydration after a day of over indulgence. The brain is attached by meninges to the roof of your headed that is surrounded by fluid and usually it is free floating. After binge drinking, the lack of fluid causes the weight of the brain to sag and the pain of the pulling of the meninges causes the headache. This is why most people get relief after lying down because gravity is no longer working against us. Other treatments include: caffeine therapy & the NoMo Nausea Band. Caffeine helps constrict the vessels supplying the brain with blood which alleviates that pounding headache. The NoMo Nausea band relieves both headaches and stomach aches produced by dehydration thru 3 mechanisms. The aromatherapy helps to increase oxygenation when smelled. The peppermint oil relaxes and equalizes the esophageal and gastric pressures along the gastrointestinal tract. The stomach is able to relax and reduce the upset stomach. Peppermint oil also has the cooling effect on the wrist which is the secret behind our distraction technology. Last the acupressure at the P6 point (view how does it work section on www.nomonausea.com for exact instructions on where to place the band), helps to produce happy hormones when constant pressure is placed on the median nerve underneath of the pressure ball. This not only helps to stop the headache but helps to prolong the time until the next headache by over 24 hours.
Staying hydrated is key to nausea and headache free days. If time does get away from you and its been too long since you chugged a bottle of water and you start to exhibit symptoms NoMo Nausea can help bring you back to life. So do your best to always stay hydrated and nausea free!
