Well, its Friday evening and I am going out to see some friends. No doubt, there will be alcohol involved and I am plagued by the notorious Asian Flush. Seems I, like 50% of the Asian community have a gene defect, which inhibits our ability to break down alcohol.
As a result, we turn bright red, accompanied with a disco I’m your chest that can be felt the whole body over, throbbing headache and nausea.
Couple of weeks ago, I went out, and had quite a bit to drink, however, my face didn’t look like it was sun burnt, I didn’t have a disco in my chest, a headache or nausea. What did I do? Initially, I though I was fixed, but further tests showed inconclusive.
There is something in my diet that helped me. I am on that search.
I will spare you the details, I have kept detailed records in my journal. But so far, I have a couple of possibilities.
- 1. Omega 3
2. Lemon juice
I have had both this evening, so will update with results in the morning.
