Fun Potential Cures for Holiday Hangovers
Segment originally aired Dec. 7, 2021
* please note this segment talks about some fun and unique products that have been promoted as helping people feel better in different ways—therefore possible preventions or solutions to help with hangovers, but I’m obviously not a doctor so if these potential “cures” don’t actually cure you, that’s not on me! lol
Often when wine drinkers get headaches, you assume this is a typical hangover when actually it could be that you’ve got some allergies! Thats what these Pure Wine wands try to tackle—they’re wine purifiers said to eliminate wine headaches by acting as a filter that eliminates some particles common in wine that might trigger allergies for some wine drinkers. Just pop this wand into your drink, swirl it around, and it filters out what might cause your headache. Pretty neat!
Another way to prepare in advance is to try this Toronto made muse meditation and sleep support headband. It’s wild—it uses technology to sense sleeping patterns and if you wake up at night, it delivers something called a “digital sleeping pill” to get you back to sleep so it’s easier to fall asleep, stay asleep, and be well-rested. Muse includes guided sleep meditation using a phone app, so it’s like a mind over matter scenario—you may not feel a hangover as badly if your mind and body are in a better position to handle it.
There’s lots of beverage remedies you can take and many are designed to boost what might be lacking in your body after a holiday party. Blended 4 You is a Canadian smoothie subscription service that currently delivers to Alberta, B.C., Ontario, Montreal & Quebec City. It’s direct to your door delivery of nutritious, delicious ready to blend or eat frozen smoothies that are also gluten free, plant based and all natural.
They’ve got a bunch of types including this one called THE AFTER PARTY, that’s high in potassium which is meant to get your electrolytes back up and uses specific ingredients to help your body detox. Great for recovery whether you had a big athletic night, are feeling sick or partied too hard but it’s also just meant to help people feel energized and healthy regularly.
Another drink to help you after the holiday party are these detox focused teas from Banff, Alberta based Jolene’s Tea House, which ships worldwide. This is a Daily Detox tea that’s sweet and spicy and aims to cleanse your body and improve digestion. Jolene’s Tea House has a lot of teas specifically designed to make people feel better so you’ve got lots of options for browse and buy!
The general theme in a holiday hangover talk is ensuring you’re well hydrated. You want to drink a lot of water post-party—and in general. I don’t know about you Tracy but I didn’t drink enough water each day until I got these giant water bottles. A ton of celebrities are being spotted with these, making it the IT accessory of the season. It’s kind of comical how big they are but it works! This one I showed on the segment in particular—with motivating measurements that encourage you to keep on drinking. Find massive bottles in local stores or shop online. In a hangover scenario, water helps replenish lost fluids from your night.
And speaking of replenishing lost fluids or getting electrolytes in you, have you tried these Pedialyte freezer pops? You can have them as freezies, make it into a drink or a fun slush, and they’re actually the #1 doctor and pharmacist recommended rehydration solution in Canada for both kids and adults. Perfect for really any scenario where you might be feeling dehydrated, and has 6x less sugar than some popular sports drinks or juices.
There’s this Canadian face mask from Nature Collection you could try called First Aid Anti Hangover. It uses chamomile to calm and relieve sensitive, stressed skin after a long night in or out. It’s recommended you use it a few times a week so it would be nice for some hangover prevention in that way as well.
If you’re planning a holiday get together, it might be a fun idea to order or DIY make something called “hangover kits” for your guests—these are pretty popular online and include things like gum, eye drops, mouth wash, tums and water OR you could pack it with items I’ve talked about in the segment and on this blog today. These kits make for fun AND useful party favours!
So there are just a few ideas for possible cures to prevent or beat holiday hangovers if you happen to overindulge a bit this season.
Thanks again to Cityline for having me on the show! I love being one of their guest “experts” and can’t wait for another opportunity to show you some food, lifestyle, or travel trends and tips.
