There is nothing worse than a hangover, a self-inflicted punishment for a night on the town. A severe hangover can leave you feeling sick, weak and dehydrated, and wishing you could curl up and die. While hangovers generally run their course and resolve themselves within a day, a really bad hangover can leave you feeling desperate for relief.
Alcohol’s Effect on Physical Function
While drinking alcohol can serve as a social lubricant that lets you come out of your shell and have some fun, too much alcohol is harmful to your brain, liver, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, the lining of your stomach, and various hormonal and regulatory systems. Alcohol is literally poison to your body-note the root word “toxic” in intoxicated!
Your body’s organs, especially your liver and kidneys, work overtime to eliminate alcohol from your system, increasing urine production which leads to dehydration. Dehydration in turn leads to reduced cognitive function, impaired oxygen delivery, disrupted sleep, headache and inflammation.
Proper hydration is necessary for digestion, detoxification of your liver and kidneys, oxygen and nutrient delivery to your cells, waste removal and many other vital metabolic functions. Chronic dehydration can result in fatigue, headaches, joint pain, weight gain, hypertension, kidney problems and skin conditions.
How Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) Can Soothe Your Hangover
During a cryotherapy session, cold temperatures constrict blood vessels in your surface tissues, shunting blood to your core and delivering toxins to your lymphatic system for removal. As your blood circulates among your vital organs, it picks up oxygen and nutrients.
As your cryotherapy session ends and your body begins to warm, enriched blood re-enters surface tissues, bringing with it oxygen and nutrients to revitalize your cells. When you step out of your cryotherapy session, you will feel rejuvenated and energized, your hangover long forgotten.
