Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
After establishing Hangover Heaven, the only medical practice to specialize in the treatment of hangovers, Dr. Jason Burke launched the first ever research institute dedicated to the study, prevention, and cure of hangovers. A branch of the Jason Burke MD Foundation, the Hangover Research Institute builds upon ongoing student work in the lab, monitored field studies, clinical trials, and the consistent findings rendered by Hangover Heaven's successful treatment of thousands of patients.
A veteran physician, Dr. Jason Burke established Hangover Heaven - a "house call" in-room service, a brick and mortar clinic, and a fully-equipped, 45-ft mobile treatment facility - as a means to address the numerous cases of severe hangovers, or veisalgia, he witnessed on a regular basis in Las Vegas.
"Las Vegas style hangovers, which are very severe, cannot be cured with Advil and a two-ounce energy drink. There are just too many toxins in the body. The cure involves treating each medical condition while supplying the body with enough catalysts to process the acetaldehyde (AcA) out of the system. Hangover Heaven provides several medical options customized for each patient," stated Dr. Burke.
Tailoring a hangover cure protocol through Hangover Heaven that consistently renders positive results encouraged Dr. Burke to expand his work to include comprehensive education and research components. This expansion came to fruition through the Jason Burke MD Foundation which houses the one of a kind Hangover Research Institute.
Dr. Burke said, "I feel that we have to do a better job of preventing and treating veisalgia. The Hangover Research Institute allows me and others in the medical field to study hangovers in a manner that will lead to more informed and evolved methods of prevention and treatment."
The Hangover Research Institute will continue its laboratory studies of volatile organic compounds and the role they play in hangovers, while embarking upon additional field work, student projects, and clinical trials useful for conferences and publication. Current research studies include: 1) Correlating respiratory acetaldehyde levels with hangover severity; 2) Correlating respiratory acetaldehyde levels with serum inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and endotoxin levels; and 3) Efficacy of different treatment options to reduce hangover markers (acetaldehyde, CRP, and endotoxin levels).
"I realize there is a great deal of judgment associated with hangovers. However, as a physician, I don't judge - I treat. With that in mind, I feel it is my professional responsibility to advance research, prevention, and treatment options for veisalgia. By doing so, I will contribute significantly to the field of medicine while doing my part to reduce the fiscal drain - $148 billion annually - of hangovers on our economy," stated Dr. Burke.
