When the body is in a state of disharmony, it will give you clues and early warning signs.
The condition of your hair, nails, tongue, skin and the shape of your body can say a lot about your general health and wellbeing.
Your body may speak to you with these symptoms:
Brittle Hair could be a sign of thyroid dysfunction, low iodine or iron levels.
Dandruff and dry cracked heels may signify an essential fatty acid deficiency.
Dilated capillaries on the face and red dots on the backs of the arms may be signs of low vitamin C.
Coffee and chocolate cravings can be the body’s way of saying it needs more magnesium.
Stretch marks, purple marks after break-outs and/or white flecks on the finger nails may signify a zinc deficiency
Ridged nails can be a sign of poor gut function
A pale tongue may signify anaemia, low vitamin B12 or too much sugar in the diet!
Listening to your body and observing its subtle changes is important to be able to correct nutritional deficiencies before they develop into chronic disease.
When in doubt, visit a health care practitioner for a professional diagnosis.
