Signs Of Sickness Your Body Is Sending You

Many times we feel sick, tired, or have pains that we can’t explain. For most diseases there are warning signs, some may come in subtle forms of pains or smells, inflammation, or weird formations in our bodies. The important thing is to listen to your body because it’s trying to send you a message even though it may not always be as clear.

You’re Gaining Or Losing Weight

Overweight people tend to fall into two categories: (1) “apples,” who carry their extra weight around the waist and belly, and (2) “pears,” who carry their weight around the hips and thighs. While being overweight is one of the body’s whispers of poor health, apple-shaped individuals are at higher risk of heart disease than pear-shaped people because they carry their fat around their organs. Losing weight too quickly without dieting or exercising is a big problem too. It could mean that you have diabetes, a thyroid problem, or even cancer.

Bad Breathbad breath

Dr. Mercola refers to digestive issues as a ‘little-known but major cause of bad breath’ and he states that a fishy smell suggests kidney problems, while a fruity-smell may signal uncontrolled diabetes. Caused by an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in your gut, the smell may even get worse after you eat something sugary because the bacteria is feeding off the sugar. Digestive system disorders, such as reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease) are also a cause of foul smelling breath. Take a high dose of probiotics and fermented foods to help your body better digest foods and feed the good bacteria. These foods also alter the flora in your mouth leading to better smelling breath in no time.

Itchy Skin

It could just be allergies or some other benign skin disorder, but excessive itchiness may also be the only whisper your body gives you when you’re suffering from liver disease. Other skin conditions that lead to rashes could include bug bites, an iron deficiency, nerve disorders, allergic reactions and even reactions to certain drugs. Pregnant women also experience itchy skin, which may be a sign of dehydration or your skin starting to expand as you get bigger, which is why it’s so important to drink plenty of water and moisturize.
