Dr. Hart's hangover tips
Dr. Hart will present a three-part plan for hangovers that includes a discussion of what causes them and tips for what to do before, during and after you drink. 

The common element in her plan is drinking lots of water, since alcohol is very dehydrating. But according to Dr. Hart, the type of water makes a difference. "Studies show that alkaline electrolyzed water, such as AquaHydrate (, speeds up metabolism of alcohol and protects your liver better than regular, plain water," she said. 

Before drinking, Dr. Hart recommends:

  • Eating a meal that includes complex carbohydrates and some dietary fat;
  • Drinking plenty of water since alcohol is very dehydrating;
  • Taking a Vitamin B 50 complex supplement.

While you are drinking, Dr. Hart recommends:

  • Staying away from darker colored alcohols that are full of congeners -- natural impurities that cause the worst hangovers;
  • Drinking at the rate of one alcoholic drink per hour;
  • Drinking a water "spacer" between alcoholic drinks to stay hydrated. 

After drinking, Dr. Hart recommends:

  • Drinking one liter of water to keep up hydration and to flush out aldehydes and methanol;
  • Taking two over-the-counter anti-inflammatory tablets such as Aleve. She advises avoiding acetaminophen, which can be toxic to the liver. 
  • Taking 500mg. of the over-the-counter amino acid Tyrosine, which raises dopamine and lowers serotonin to improve the balance of neurotransmitters upset by drinking. 

"Drinking plenty of alkaline, electrolyzed water is key in my program," said Dr. Hart. "I personally recommend the AquaHydrate ( brand. In addition to being an extremely pure alkaline electrolyzed water, it has natural trace minerals, which are not only healthy, but make the water taste smooth and silky. This makes easier to drink enough to stave off dehydration. Of course the most important thing is to drink responsibly."
