7 Helpful Steps To Ease Your Painful Wyoming Hangover


There's no doubt they suck, and there's no doubt that some of us will wake up tomorrow morning and not be able to function.

Too much alcohol, not enough water & food and lack of sleep are all contributing factors to your day-after-drinking, sickness.

Howard E. LeWine, MD, Chief Medical Editor, Harvard Health Publishing, explains that:

Drinking interferes with brain activity during sleep, so a hangover may be a form of sleep deprivation. Alcohol scrambles the hormones that regulate our biological clocks, which may be why a hangover can feel like jet lag, and vice versa. Alcohol can also trigger migraines, so some people may think they're hung over when it's really an alcohol-induced migraine they're suffering.


Hangovers begin after blood alcohol levels start to fall. In fact, according to some experts, the worst symptoms occur when levels reach zero.

So if you read that like I read that, the good MD is saying, if you bet your BAC back up a little, it should take care of your hangover. Good Ol' "hair of the dog".
