12 Things Your Body Is Telling You about Your Health

The body has its own ‘language’ with which it tells us whether there are any changes of our physical, mental and emotional health. These signals sent by our body are not to be ignored since they can tell a lot about the state of our general health.

In the following text, there are some things, or rather signals, that our body shows through different organs in order to reflect our state of health.

Lips

When our lips are dry and cracked that means that our body might be facing some allergic reaction or in most cases it causes dehydration. This is the case if we experience this issue on a regular basis.

However, a very common reason for this may also be certain lip cosmetics or dental hygiene products as well as medication or different kinds of food.

Feet

Swollen feet are not an uncommon sight. Actually, it is usualy for pregnant women and for people who spend a lot of their time standing.

But, if this is not the case for you, then it might indicate heart problems or more precisely fluid retention due to irregular pumping. In such cases it is best to consult your doctor.

Another common issue is stinky feet. This condition is usually mild and indicates fungal infection.

Tongue

Our tongue color is usually pink, however, if it is dry and pale then it indicates iron deficiency.
