Sometimes we can lull ourselves into the idea that we’re healthy. We look in the mirror, don’t see anything wrong, and assume that all is well in the world.
However, there are several signs that your health isn’t actually as good as you think it is.
You Snore All The Time
Snoring is a perfectly normal part of life, right?
Well, not so fast. Researchers associated snoring with excess weight, sleep apnea, heart disease, and gastroesophageal reflux.
If you have a bad snoring habit, the current advice is to see your GP. They’ll be able to provide you with a checkup and tell you whether you need to make any lifestyle modifications.
Your Skin Is Constantly Breaking Out
Naturally, our skin should be clear – with perhaps the odd pimple here or there – but a lot of people walk around with faces covered in spots for years at a time.
Acne may or may not be a normal part of growing up. In some cultures, people don’t develop it at all. Instead, it usually results from too much sugar, dairy, and meat consumption. Eat whole plant foods and watch your complexion recover.
Your Eye Whites Aren’t White
The whites of your eyes should be white. But if they’re yellowish, it could indicate issues with your gallbladder or liver.
Again, if your whites have a yellow tint, you’ll want to get checked out by your doctor. Get them to perform a battery of tests to see whether there are any health-related issues driving it.
It Hurts To Move
Moving should come as naturally to people as flying does to birds. But, at some points in your life, it can become hard to move freely. You have to lie in specific positions when you go to sleep or walk with a certain gait to keep pain at bay.
If it hurts to move, ask your chiropractor what might be causing it. More often than not, the root issue is a muscular or skeletal imbalance, something that you can correct with regular therapy.
You Feel Tired All The Time
Feeling tired occasionally is perfectly normal. But having the sense that you’re battling tiredness all the time certainly isn’t. Nature designed the human body to feel awake in the day and sleep like a log at night.
If you feel overly tired, take a look at your lifestyle. Are you getting enough sleep? Are you getting up too early? Are you pumping yourself up on caffeine?
Also, check your iron levels. Too little iron in the blood can lead to severe lethargy.
You’re Gassy All The Time
The average person passes wind anywhere between ten and twenty times a day. (My boys are overachievers in this department!) If you have a problem in your gut, it can be much more often than that.
Gassiness tends to come and go in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). When it flares up, though, you can feel really sick and lethargic, not to mention cold.
Try switching up your diet and focusing on natural, neutral foods, like potatoes.
As you can see, a lot of the “cures” for common ailments include a healthy diet – plant-based foods filled with nutrients your body craves to continue on the path to health!
