Remedies for complications from around the world


(CNN) — This time of year is all about fun and everything that comes with it. An addiction to alcohol often leads to unpleasant morning after morning.

Since there’s no magic hangover pill (not yet, anyway), what can you do if you overdo it?

The answer, for many, lies in carbohydrates. Constipation is severe dehydration and a drop in blood sugar, which overeating causes a number of symptoms: nausea, fatigue, irritability and body aches.

Despite this uncomfortable reality, we sometimes hope for a “cure” and sometimes starve. Fighting dehydration and keeping your blood sugar levels up is essential, and drinking plenty of water and providing your body with carbohydrates, healthy fats and protein can help.

Of course, the best way to avoid binge eating is to avoid drinking. If it’s not attractive, you have to find a way to get past it.
