Many people enjoy having a drink. Some drink alcohol regularly, while some may consume it occasionally. Some like to have it with food. While some treat drinks as desserts. In some countries like Australia, Germany, Holland and Spain, alcohol is considered as a social drug making many feel incomplete to spend the weekend without it. What else can we say about it? It taste good and it makes you look stylish (ok not all, but some drinks may make you look stylish)
However, like real drugs, alcohol also comes with a risk. A huge risk, if not done responsibly. Large amounts of alcohol consumption regularly, can do a lot of damage to the body, such as;
- Interrupted sleep – While most of us think that alcohol is a sleep aid, we’re very wrong. Alcohol actually does the opposite. Yes, it is not deniable that alcohol get you to doze off faster, but alcohol makes you have less deep sleep. This results in exhaustion during the day.
- Liver damage – High consumption and long term use of alcohol can damage the liver and prevent it from eliminating harmful substances from your body.
- Fatigue – Many people experience low blood pressure after a night out. This may cause anemia which usually leaves you feeling tired and exhausted.
- Infertility – Alcohol consumption over a period of time can cause irregular hormones which may lead to infertility.
- Makes you pee more – Have you ever noticed that you tend to urinate more when you drink. This is because alcohol acts on the kidneys, making you pee more than you take. It reduces the production of hormone called vasopressin, which tells your kidneys to reabsorb water rather than flush it out through the bladder.
- Pale and flaky skin – Alcohol dehydrates your body including your skin, which happens to be the largest organ of your body. Drinking too much may also deprive the skin of vital vitamins and nutrients.
In conjunction of the Alcohol Awareness week next year, we at Shian’s Wellness Center, would like to encourage our customers to drink responsibly. Being a responsible drinker isn’t just about not picking a fight or drink driving. It is also about taking responsible of your health and body. This includes knowing when to stop, and how much alcohol your body can take.
However many of the alcohol effects are actually reversible. If you feel like you’ve been drinking too much, just try to reduce your intake and remove the toxins in your body. Here are some tips that might help you:
- Drink lots of water
- Get a lot of sleep and rest
- Take vitamin C
- Consume a lot of fruits and vegetables
- Have a lot of soups
- Do a few sessions of Colon Hydrotherapy
