Do not wait for your body to give up completely, instead look out for signs that suggest that you are unhealthy and do something about it. These signs may not seem life threatening, but if left unnoticed and untreated, you can be sure that you are heading for something scary.
Listen to your body and look out for the following signs:
The stress hormone cortisol is supposed to drop during the nighttime, so that you can sleep better and your body can get the rest it needs. However, if you are suffering from insomnia and find it difficult to sleep during the night, it is because your cortisol levels are high and the repair mechanism has been switched off.
Believe It or Not, You are Getting Shorter:
If you are charting your height on a regular basis, and you see a dip in inches, it could mean that your bones are degenerating. What you should know is that bone loss can be avoided, as you grow older. This is a sign that you need to take care of your bones.
Are you shaped like an apple?
There are two shapes that overweight people fall under: apple and pear. When you are apple shaped, the fat is accumulated around the waist, when you are pear shaped, the fat accumulates around the hips and the thighs. If you are apple shaped, it is time to raise the red flag and do something about it as apple shaped individuals could be at a risk of major heart disease.
Are you constantly feeling tired?
There could be a number of reasons why you are tired all the time. It could be because of caring for your child, it could be because you have been beating yourself up to meet deadlines at work or it could be because of what you eat and drink.
When you feel exhausted, it means that your stress levels are extremely high and your body’s repair mechanism is working twice as hard to protect you from dramatic illnesses. Chronic fatigue needs to be treated so that you can get back to better health.
Dark Yellow Urine:
