Hi, Fix from above by putting in more beams and then fix your ceiling back to them. you will have to fill the fixing points on ceiling and re- finish.
Honestly the easiest fix is a drop ceiling. Build a new ceiling frame with supports 16inches on center and hang the new ceiling to it. You lose about 4 inches if you keep it tight to the original ceiling. It doesn’t risk any electrical, plumbing or HVAC systems. You can be done in a week and never worry about it again.
