These are simple and effective Ayurvedic hangover remedies.

Part of a balanced lifestyle, for some, might involve the occasional glass of wine when celebrating with friends or having dinner with family.

Sometimes, when you are just starting a healthier lifestyle and trying to get into the habit of listening to your body, you might tend to overindulge and drink more than what your body can tolerate.

Waking up the next day with a headache, fatigue, and nausea is not fun.

But, if you drank too much, just move on and prepare one of these natural Ayurvedic drinks to help alleviate the hangover symptoms.

Listen to your body: a hangover is a sign that you might be overdoing it.

Ayurvedic perspective on alcohol

I drink a glass of wine sporadically.

My husband’s birthday, a romantic sunset dinner, or a night out with friends might motivate me to have a glass of Pinot Noir.

Certainly, if I’m feeling balanced and with no Pitta aggravation. (Read this guide to drink wine for your dosha)

It is not the occasional drink that can unbalance you, but the consistent or excessive consumption of alcohol.

Alcohol, according to Ayurveda, is considered to be a rajasic or overstimulating substance that will interfere with our perception of reality and cloud our mind.

As the quality of purity or Sattva is reduced, we can notice less self-introspection and connection to our inner bodies.

Moreover, not seeing the world as it is, typically leads to the wrong actions, specially against ourselves.

Drinking too much alcohol might eventually turn into heart and liver damage, and diabetes.

The immediate effects?

Pitta stimulation and its consequent symptoms: Acne, dehydration, aggression, agitation, compulsive behaviors, guilt, loneliness, self-destructive behaviors, shakiness, vomiting, and cravings.

Besides reducing the alcohol intake, follow an anti-Pitta diet to balance your body and mind.

Balance is key

Here’s the deal.

If alcohol is part of your life now, don’t quit it suddenly.

Instead, start reducing the quantity or frequency, while you work on your diet, movement, and self-love.

Becoming a healthier version of yourself is not an overnight, linear process.

Ayurveda is a big proponent of small changes to truly alter our lifestyles.

Sorry for the long intro! This is an old video that I cannot longer edit.
