We all do it. If someone asks us how we are. We mindlessly say…”I'm fine.” But ARE WE?
Unless you’re under a doctor’s care for a medical problem, chances are good that you think you’re pretty healthy. But you may be ignoring subtle warning signs that you’re not as healthy as you think you are.
10 Signs You're Not as Healthy as You Think You Are
1. Bloating and Gas
After you eat a meal, does your belly swell up? Do you have to loosen your belt or unbutton your pants?
Once in a while after a giant meal that may be true, but if it happens regularly, you may have a problem, including a food sensitivity or allergy or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Believe it or not, your farts may be trying to tell you something.
Snoring is no laughing matter. If you have a cold and you’re snoring, it’s probably no big deal.
If you do it all the time it could be a sign of sleep apnea, a condition that puts your life at risk.
You may think that always feeling tired goes hand in hand with a busy life, but it doesn’t.
If you're getting plenty of sleep and you still feel tired, it can be a sign of thyroid problems, anemia, and more.
Your body needs sleep, and if you can’t fall asleep it's a symptom of hidden health problems. It can also lead to other health problems. Don’t ignore it.
5. Bad breath
If you're good about your oral hygiene and have bad breath, the smell may be a sign of something wrong in your mouth or elsewhere in your body.
See your dentist, and if they don’t find anything wrong, go see your doctor.
Having a headache now and then is no big deal. If you start having them regularly or you can’t make the pain stop, see your doctor.
7. Muscle Cramps
If your muscles are cramping up while you're not working out, it’s a sign that there’s something wrong. It’s usually a lack of important nutrients.
8. Nails and Hair
Your nails are a sure sign of what’s going on in your body. If they are a color other than pink, or if they break or chip easily, it could be a sign of a problem. The same is true if you are losing a lot of hair.
9. Weight Loss or Gain
If you’re not trying to lose weight or gain weight but you are, there are a lot of reasons it could be happening.
Weight loss can be caused by serious health problems, and gain can be a result of thyroid problems or other things.
If you’re going to the bathroom more or less than usual, it can be a sign of a medical issue.
Make sure that you’re paying attention to the small messages your body is sending.
Otherwise, it could turn into a big problem.
The Bottom Line
If you're experiencing even subtle symptoms like the ones listed above, it could be a sign of a bigger health problem and you should see your doctor.
A lot of times these symptoms could simply be the result of toxins built up in your body over time. That could mean that a gentle detox would benefit you. Here's the 3-day detox I use every few months. I always feel energized and more focused after I eat these healing recipes. Give it a try and let me know how you feel afterward.
Yours in health and happiness,
