Whether you're ringing in the new year, celebrating St. Patty's Day, the arrival of spring, hosting a summer barbecue, or carving up a turkey, it's important to know how to prevent a hangover before the morning after a holiday celebration. Good news! Enjoying a few drinks doesn't mean you're destined to spend the next day sloth-like on the couch or hunched over a toilet. In fact, researchers are finding that your alcoholic choices and what you eat before, during, and after you drink could drastically reduce your risk of a morning hangover.
In the event that you do overindulge and find yourself feeling queasy and awful the morning after, reach for natural hangover-relieving food and drinks instead of the medicine cabinet, and you'll be feeling refreshed and back to your good old self in no time. Also, remember to choose organic foods when stocking up on foods to fight hangovers; your night out on the town has already given your liver enough to process, it shouldn't have to deal with breaking down toxic pesticides, too.
