List of 10 major neglected signs that your body is giving you regarding your health

1. You Always Feel Tired

Feeling tired after a strenuous work routine or during childcare is natural. But, if you are having this feeling of exhaustion regularly even after taking proper rest then it could be due to any health issue. Your tiredness could be due to the improper function of your thyroid gland. Or it may be due to adrenal glands or simply your body is utilizing all its energy to protect you from the overload of work or other activities such as consuming alcohol, cigarettes, processed foods or other environmental problems that you are bombarding yourself with. 

Your tiredness is also commonly due to stress. when you are always putting yourself in an alert position, you are basically over-using your body. Due to this, your body is in hyper-active mode, to protect you from any illness, infections and even cancer. This constant over-drive exhausts your body. At times, this temporary fatigue can severely affect your nervous system.

So, pay attention to your ‘Tiredness” this may help you in saving your life.

2. Your Skin Looks Pale

In winter, your skin is bound to look dull and it’s common to lose the summer glow skin. It’s nothing to worry about. It is, however concerning, if your skin suddenly starts to look pale as this is a warning sign that blood flow in your body is reduced. 

A pale skin tone may also suggest that your body is producing fewer red blood cells. If this pale skin colour is accompanied by fatigue or weakness then you have anaemia. This anaemia is telling you that your blood is having problems distributing oxygen throughout the body.

For this, you need to add iron-rich foods such as dark leafy green vegetables, dried fruits and red meat in your diet. 

Don’t neglect your sudden change in skin colour, get your blood checked to know about your iron level and opt the diet as per your dietitian to treat anaemia as long term side effects for anaemia get worse. 

3. Your Strange Food Cravings

It’s perfectly normal to crave something sweet or junk food once in a while so don’t blame the foods. However, if you constantly and regularly have strange food cravings then this is more than a nutritional disorder, it could be the deficiency of Vitamin C, iron and magnesium. You definitely need to consult your DOCTOR!

4. You’re Getting Shorter

Strange, but it is true for people. Let’s say your height, what you measured two or a year was 5’11 but now it’s 5’10. It means you are shrinking. Now you must think why are you shrinking? This happens when due to “Osteoporosis” your bones start to degenerate. Osteoporosis is not the problem of the aged people. You may have been healthy all your life but now your body is telling you that something is wrong with your bones. If you don’t take measures for it, you might end up having a humpback or hip fracture. Make sure you are taking sufficient natural Vitamin D and Calcium. 

5. You Are Gassy 

Extreme gas like bloating can be a sign of serious digestion issues that your body is giving you. If it is a problem for you more than often then it means you have any food allergy or any sensitivity. It could also mean that you are suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Heartburn is caused by eating spicy foods, smoking or drinking alcohol. If it remains regular and frequent then it can eventually lead to inflammation in your oesophagus which can ultimately lead to ulcers and then serious bleeding if ignored. If you ignore this continuous heartburn, you are putting yourself in higher risk towards “oesophagal cancer”.
