8 warning signs from our body that we should never underestimate
Our body sends us many warning signs that, if ignored, can lead to much more complicated situations.
You should never underestimate the presence of some signs, as trivial as they may seem. For example, have you noticed any variations in your diet? Do you inexplicably want to eat something sweet?
For all warning signs, there is an explanation and a remedy!
Insomnia, irritability and muscle cramps.
These are the classic warning signs that the body sends when it has a deficiency of potassium and magnesium. To introduce these nutrients into your diet, in case of slight deficiencies, you should eat bananas, tomatoes, oranges, and spinach.
2. Dry skin
Dry skin can be caused by a lack of vitamin E. Therefore, include in your diet vegetables, dried fruits, and fish.
3. The desire to eat something sweet
If you suddenly want to eat something sweet, it may be that you are experiencing a moment of intense stress. Your body needs the extra energy that is found in sugar, but to avoid putting on too many pounds in a short amount of time, opt for honey or chocolate dark.
4. Craving for something icy or frozen
This strange desire is a symptom of iron deficiency! The best sources of iron are meat, legumes, eggs, and seafood. However, in the event of severe anemia, it is always best to consult your doctor who can prescribe vitamin supplements.
5. Bleeding gums
If you notice that your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, you may have a vitamin C deficiency. You can solve this problem by eating oranges and other citrus fruits in general, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, cabbage, and broccoli. The advice is to eat food containing vitamin C raw whenever possible because vitamin C is rapidly degraded by heat.
6. Weak and brittle nails and hair.
If you notice that your nails and hair break easily and are weak, the cause may be a vitamin B deficiency. Add it to your diet by drinking more milk and, if you like, also by eating Nori seaweed, which is a great source of vitamins.
7. Rings around the iris of the eyes
These rings around the iris are normal in people over 50 years of age, but if they appear in younger individuals the cause may be high cholesterol. Better to do get some lab tests done and contact your doctor.
8. Greek foot aka Morton's toe
Anyone who as a "Greek foot" aka Morton's toe, that is to say, if the second toe is longer than the big toe, may find that they have the problem of callus formation at different points on the soles of their foot. If you do sports then search for the sports shoe that best suits you. The ideal solution would be to wear custom-made soles to prevent the inflammation of the tendons and leg nerves. If you have a second toe that is longer than your big toe then your body is asking you to pay more attention to your feet!
