7 Alarming Signs You Are Unhealthy. by rodeo0070(m): 11:43am On Jul 10, 2013
We are often guilty of believing that we are a picture of fine health as we have no real signs that anything untoward is going on inside our body. However, this does not have to be true as there are actually a number of indications that we tend to ignore that are actually telling us that something is not right. Failure to pay attention to them will of course tend to lead to things getting worse, so what follows are 7 signs you are unhealthy in the hope that they may stop further problems from occurring.

1. You find that your lips crack.


It may sound like something that just happens due to the weather, but cracked lips, especially at the corners, can actually show that you have a vitamin B12 deficiency. A lack of this vitamin in your system can lead to health issues such as anaemia and it will affect your blood, so look at either buying a supplement to boost the levels, eat foods that are high in it, or consult your doctor to get a special injection that really will make a difference to your health.

2. You are not as tall as you used to be.

This may sound strange, but as we get older there is a tendency for us to shrink, but the rate at which this happens can indicate that there is some kind of issue with our bones and in particular with us developing osteoporosis. The problem with this bone disease is that it then means we are more likely to fracture a bone when we fall or develop curvature of the spine, so early diagnosis will allow you to make changes to your diet that can stop it from progressively getting worse.

3. You pick up more than your fair share of colds.


If you seem to be more prone to picking up colds it may indicate that you need to boost your immune system or there may be some kind of issue with it. You may be lacking in Vitamin C or there could even be a virus attacking it that you are unaware of, so get a blood test carried out that can check if there is anything to be concerned about and try to improve your general health to give it that natural boost.

4. Your urine is too yellow.

It is important that you pay attention to the color of your urine as this can actually be a fantastic indicator about your general health. If you are hydrated your urine should be almost clear, but if you are drinking enough and it is still a dark yellow it may indicate that there is an issue with your kidneys and the waste is not being processed correctly. Look at upping your fluid intake and see if it helps, but only drink water, and if it stays the same get your kidney function checked.

5. Your skin acts up continuously.

If you find that you develop acne, eczema, or any other skin disorder on a regular basis then it can mean more than you are simply not taking care of the skin or using the correct products. Instead, it could be the result of an allergic reaction or it may be your body telling you that it is stressed and needs you to slow down. Your skin is the biggest single organ in your body, so listen to what it is telling you as your body often uses it to put out a cry for help and it offers up signs that all is not well and you are not as healthy as you thought you were.

6. You are not sleeping like normal.

If you find that your sleep pattern is disturbed and you are suffering from some form of insomnia it does tend to point towards your body and mind being too stressed. When we sleep, our body is supposed to lower the amount of cortisol coursing through it, but when we are stressed this does not happen and we are thrown out of sync. When this happens our body struggles to repair itself and recharge its batteries leading to us gradually being run down and when this happens we can pick up all kinds of illnesses due to our immune system not operating at full capacity.

7. You are tired, but sleep enough.

If you are getting more than enough sleep, but still find that you are tired in the afternoon, then it may indicate that there is a problem with your thyroid. The problem here is that your adrenal glands are being exhausted leading to your body using up all of its energy early on without it being replaced in the proper manner. This problem can then lead to your body being run down as it is working so hard trying to protect you from the different kinds of toxins that you can pick up during the day from the environment as well as things you are doing. When this happens it leaves you open to other potential health problems, so get your thyroid checked.

Frankly speaking, no one is healthy. I repeat, no one is healthy. A heathy person is a person dat has all d required nutrients( CHO, protein, fats, vitamins, minerals, water, n phytochemicals) in d reqired amount and a metabolic system free from any form of toxin/toxicants(prof. Orjimelukwe, 2013). No body has all d nutrients in required amount n absolutely free from toxin. Day in day out, we r exposed 2 toxins tru food we eat, environmnt, air we breath, etc.
But if u r nutritionally cautious and reduce, drastically, toxin exposure, u may aproach 90% healthy body system.

The most common causes.

Some Hands Are 'Dirty Like Toilets' Study Suggests (TIPS For Hand Washing)

More than one in 10 people's hands are so contaminated with faecal organisms that the levels of bacteria detected were equal to what you would expect to find in a dirty toilet bowl, a study suggested.

Out of the samples taken, 11% of hands, 8% of bank cards and 6% of bank notes showed this form of gross contamination.

In Britain, one in 10 bank cards and one in seven notes were found to be contaminated with some faecal organisms and more than a quarter of hands sampled showed traces of faecal contamination including bacteria such as E.coli.

My urine has always been yellow. Since I was in primary school thru secondary and then University.. up to this age! the only time my urine becomes colorless is when rain falls and temperature around me drops considerably. I tend to pass out more urine then. But I hardly fall sick. last time I checked in any hospital was in 2010, and that's since the last time in 1992. The 1992 sickness was typhoid fever which almost claimed my life. the 2010 sickness was food poisoning and equally fatal. Otherwise I am healthy. I just need to drink more water per day to clear the yellow color in my urine. right?
