Health Conditions : Alcohol & Over Indulgence
Alcohol, can bring about feelings of relaxation, confidence and social inclusion, as well as being part of celebrations all over the world.
Undoubtedly, alcohol is a toxic, addictive drug that can cause disruption of the body's water balance, leading to dehydration. Its metabolic products, mainly acetaldehyde and acetic acid, acidify the blood and tissues. It also alters your body's normal daily rhythms, causing insomnia, daytime sleepiness and a generally jet-lagged feeling. The negative effects of alcohol on the body’s systems are many, and perhaps the key is moderation. There are times though, when it is used to alleviate daily stresses or during the festive period where one event after the other, means we have feeling of over-indulgence.
