Cinco de Mayo Aftermath

by drjdewitt

HAPPY BELATED CINCO DE MAYO!

So it’s the morning after Cinco de Mayo.  Did you imbibe a little too much?  Well if you’re planning on hitting the links today dehydration could be a problem.  Some of the symptoms include:

Hangover Golf

Headache

Poor sense of overall well-being

Sensitivity to light and sound

Diarrhea

Loss of appetite

Trembling

Nausea

Fatigue

Increased heart rate and blood pressure

Dehydration(dry mouth, extreme thirst, dry eyes)

Trouble concentrating

Anxiety

Difficulty sleeping

Weakness

Obviously this is going to effect your golf game.   Hydration is the key to lessening the effects of a night out.  Drinking a glass of water after every drink (or every other) is a good pre-emptive strike to prevent deydration the next day.  If it’s too late for that, drink as much water as you can the morning after and include a good B-complex supplement.  This will help to replenish your nutrients that have been depleted during the previous night.  The B vitamins also give you a boost in energy that should aid your golf game when you are “struggling”.  Deep breathing also helps to detox the body.  Breathe in deeply through the nose and hold for 5-15 seconds then exhale through the mouth.  The key here is to exhale twice as long as you inhale.  So if you inhale for a count of 10 exhale for 20.  This forces more oxygen into the tissues which aids in the detoxification process of all the free radicals in the system.

Happy Golfing!
