For most people, summer means brews and barbecues. For others it means traveling. Traveling usually means little sleep and little water. It goes without saying that all of these things are risk factors for ill health as they can damage and wear down a few key organ systems of the body. Dehydration and Hangovers go hand in hand. Dehydration and Summer go hand in hand. See a pattern?
The effects of dehydration and liver burden (caused from the over consumption of alcohol) can range from a simple cold or headache, to lethargy, to dehydration and kidney stones and hospitalization! Summer is a carefree time of year, but we shouldn’t be neglecting our bodies!
