Look into using 5-HTP to up your serotonin levels, it might help. And milk thistle is a liver protectant with no known side effects.
Read up about them before trying them; 5-HTP can trigger serotonin receptors in the small intestine that are there to be used when the brain realizes
the body has been poisoned; in some people the initial reaction to 5-HTP is rather pronounced vomiting. Once you get past that part, it never happens
again but it's enough to make you swear off something that may be very helpful. It's also great for low grade depression- also low serotonin;
that's the reason why a doc will ask if you are 'having trouble sleeping or staying asleep'; it's a marker for depression. Alternatively, eat a
diet high in turkey meat, almonds and bananas which are all relatively high in tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin and from there to melatonin.
And of course you realize that the alcohol is a pain killer and there are plenty of other options, some of which may be less hazardous than booze, or
you could try rotating your nightly options, to give your liver a break? If it always has to detox the same thing coming along every 24 hours, at
some point the liver runs out of the enzymes required to do the detoxification and that's when the problems start. Your healthy diet will help that,
though. Besides, a decent bottle of wine is what, $8 a bottle? That will add up quickly compared to a good mattress and a couple Advils.
