7. Alcohol Abuse
Why It Happens: Excessive use of alcohol can lead to dehydration and hypertension, both of which can cause nosebleeds.
Additional Info: Alcohol also plays a role in reducing the blood’s ability to clot, making bleeding more likely. It also dilates blood vessels, increasing blood flow and making it harder to stop the bleeding.
What To Do: Drink less! Alcohol also depletes the body’s stores of vitamin C and calcium (as well as other vital nutrients), both of which are important for blood vessel health. Supplementing with organic, whole-food sourced supplements could help.
