Baltic news, News from Latvia, BNN.LV, BNN-NEWS.COM, BNN-NEWS.RUNew Year’s celebration is unimaginable without a rich selection of meals and beverages. The problem is that people have to tackle far more meals during this celebration than they can handle. Often the day after celebration is followed up by serious consequences: headache, nausea and other health problems.

There are different types of medicine that can help avoid such problems. However, use of such medicine can cause other problems. SIA Venden has compiled a list of recommendations from diet specialists to help make the celebration enjoyable. Vended reminds that the best cure for post-celebration ailment is nothing new – just some water with reduced salt content.

Avoid consuming too much salt

Eating different meals and drinking alcoholic beverages during the celebration is often followed up by feeling unwell the next morning. The consequences from overeating, the hangover from alcohol, feeling nauseous and other symptoms cause serious problems for all of us. The hangover is because the body lost a lot of salts, but trying to recover it in large doses is wrong. Caution is advised here – if we drink too much of salty beverages, it will only cause more harm.

Everyone knows of the method to drink pickle brine. It is not entirely recommended as a universal solution, however. This is because there is no way of knowing just how much salt is contained in them if we add on top of it mineral water with high sodium content. This can result in giving the body too much salt. It is more reasonable to consume water with low sodium content. It is also important to note that the body needs not only salt, but also potassium, chlorine, magnesium, etc.

Prepare water stores before the celebration

Gastroenterologists say that water with increased sodium content is not the best solution. Salt molecules contained in it end up in the stomach and intestines. There they circulate without getting into the bloodstream. It would be best to drink water with low sodium content. This solution is easily accessible to all.

Recovering lost liquid and normalizing stomach function

It is recommended to start drinking water in the first hour after waking up. This will help the body flush poisons secreted by liver when breaking down alcohol. If you don’t want to drink regular water, you can add lemon to it – it will help recover lost liquids and normalize stomach function. It is recommended to drink no less than 0.5 litres of water in the morning. To recover fully from hangover, it is recommended to drink 1.5 or 2 litres of water.

A walk on the weekend or to work

Hangover should not be treated with alcohol. It will no help reduce symptoms – it will only delay them. It can help with a headache, but in exchange the body will get weaker. It is also not recommended to drink strong coffee or tea – these beverages put pressure on the heart and flush liquids from the body. The best cures include water, fresh air and physical activity. If you have a day off, you shouldn’t spend the day in bed. It would be best to go for a walk. If you have to go to work on the next day after the holiday, it would be a good idea to walk to work (if possible). Although you may not feel like it initially, your body will thank you later!

Take care of your body

There are many suggested cures for feeling better the next morning. People should look for the most appropriate one for them personally. It remains highly important to take care of our organism. It is worth carefully considering different traditional methods – not all of them are as beneficial or harmless as they seem.
