When the immune system weakens or vitamins are missing, it signals the body with small changes. Here are the signs that show that everything is fine.
Correctly interpret body signals
If something is wrong with our health, our body often sends warning signals. For example, stomach problems or headaches can be the result of stress or a lot of mental stress. But even external signs such as pale skin, tongue coating or discolored fingernails can be evidence of disease or deficiency symptoms. We explain how to interpret these warning signs of your body correctly.
1. Torn corners of the mouth as a warning signal
Broken corners of the mouth (rhagades) are manifested by small inflammations of the mouth, which often ache when talking and burn with every touch. These fissures can be caused by dry lips and the associated habit of licking their lips constantly, which causes the skin to dry out and tear.
Viruses, bacteria or fungi, such as herpes simplex or streptococci, are also possible causes of the inflamed corners of the mouth. In addition, iron deficiency or a lack of vitamin B2 can cause the symptoms.
If the symptoms recur, again and again, a doctor should clarify the cause. Because even diseases such as diabetes, psoriasis or allergies may be the cause of the complaints.
As a home remedy for torn corners of the mouth, by the way, honey is suitable because it makes the lips supple and at the same time has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
2. Tongue covering as an indication of illness
If our tongue is healthy, it is pale pink and usually shows a thin whitish tongue coating, which comes from food leftovers and harmless germs. However, with a strong covering of the tongue, the body can express the presence of a disease.
Among other things, depending on the color of the tongue covering, the following triggers may be present:
- White: Cold, gastrointestinal diseases or oral thrush
- yellowish: fungal infections or disorders of bile and liver
- red (raspberry tongue): infectious diseases, vitamin B12 deficiency, gastrointestinal problems and diseases of the liver and heart
- brown: intestinal diseases, kidney problems
- gray: iron deficiency or anemia
- black (hairy tongue): disturbed oral flora as a side effect of antibiotics
In addition to the color of the tongue covering the tongue can also provide further evidence of health. For example, a dry or swollen tongue may indicate various diseases.
3. Dark circles and swollen eyelids
Dark circles and thick eyelids are often associated with lack of sleep or over-consumption of alcohol. In fact, there is not always an unhealthy lifestyle behind the apparitions.
Dark circles are not uncommon on the one hand, especially in fair-skinned people, but on the other hand, they can also be signs of nutrient deficiency (iron or zinc) or an undersupply of the blood with oxygen and diseases of the liver, kidneys and metabolism.
Swelling of the eyelids is also an indication of allergies, high blood pressure, the onset of shingles, heart failure or kidney disease.
4. Paleness can have many causes
Everyone has their own skin color. But a sudden change in color may be an indication that something is wrong with the body. For example, pale skin is a well-known sign of physical discomfort. A dull complexion can not be just an indication of too little sun.
Temporary paleness may indicate circulatory problems, infections or low blood sugar (for example, diabetes). However, if the paleness lasts longer and is accompanied by pale mucous membranes, this is a warning signal for more serious problems. Possible causes of pale skin are:
Anemia, for example as a result of a lack of iron, folic acid or vitamin B12 or due to kidney weakness
low blood pressure (hypotension)
unnoticed bleeding in the body, such as a stomach ulcer
in heavy smokers: so-called “smoker skin” due to lack of oxygen
5. Yellowish skin and yellow eyes
If you notice the look in the mirror that the skin and the otherwise white part of the eyes are yellowish, you should consult a doctor. Because yellowish skin, especially in connection with yellow eyes, can be an indication of jaundice. Discoloration occurs when the concentration of bilirubin (a red blood cell depletion product) in the body is increased.
6.Smooth, rosy facial skin
7.Full, shiny hair
- Vitamin A, when the hair is dull and the scalp is scaly
- Iron and zinc if the hair is dry and brittle
- B vitamins and vitamin C, if hair grows slowly
- High sugar and fat consumption when the scalp itches
- Protein or iron deficiency in hair loss (but there are many other causes of hair loss)
- Longitudinal grooves are an aging phenomenon
- Brittle nails come from frequent water contact (cleaning or rinsing water)
9.Good, deep sleep
Good sleep consists of a steady rhythm of deep and light sleep phases. This promises perfect relaxation, new energy for the day and even longer life.
10.Pink, free tongue
If there is a white coating on the tongue or if it is noticeably red, this is an indication of an inflammation in the body or vitamin deficiency (usually vitamin A, vitamin B12 or vitamin C). Harmless on the other hand is a cracked-furrowed tongue, the so-called map tongue. It is genetic.
11.Guard, clear eyes
The clear eyes show that you have slept enough and have not stared too long at the computer screen or were in the fresh air. Otherwise they are often killed and burn . They are more indirect signs of their health.
Smooth skin without swelling under the eyes are also a health signal. Because the opposite – swollen eyelids – indicate allergies , too little sleep or even an unhealthy diet, that is: too much salt.
12.Slim, flexible shackles
If you are not overturned or pregnant, your feet and shackles should not be swollen by water retention. Slender restraints are a sign of a fit cardiovascular system and well-functioning venous valves.
13.Lots of energy
If you jump out of bed every morning and are already full of energy, you are almost certainly very well.
It’s also a sign of good health when your energy lasts all day. However, if it breaks in the afternoon and their eyes involuntarily close, then it probably lacks the sugar metabolism.
Possible causes of these symptoms include:
Diseases of the liver (for example due to hepatitis, liver cirrhosis or hepatitis B infection)
Illnesses of bile (for example because of a gallstone or bile due to inflammation)
Blood disorders (due to poisoning, for example)
Activate self-healing powers
The recommendation is to spray the agent in the acute phase at intervals of 10 minutes under the tongue in order to activate the body’s own processes in a meaningful way. In addition, plenty of warm water should be drunk to eliminate as many toxins through the kidneys and the skin. (That’s why they sweat more and more.) In connection with infections, I generally advise against antipyretics, as they cause the metabolic toxins released by bacteria and viruses can not be destroyed, because the increased body temperature is artificially lowered.
