It’s obvious you’re unhealthy when you’re diagnosed with cancer, flattened with a heart attack, leveled with a stroke, or put on dialysis. Such health crises will wake you up lickety-split and hopefully motivate you to make health and lifestyle changes aimed at bringing your body back into balance.
But did you know our bodies give us warning signs of waning health long before we get thwacked with potentially life-threatening illnesses? Our bodies speak to us in whispers, and if we don’t listen to the whispers, our bodies start to yell.
How can you tell if your body is whispering? Here are some warning signs.
1:You sleep poorly.
2:You're getting shorter.
4:You're always tired.
5:Your urine is dark yellow.
7:You're always anxious.
8:You only move your bowels once a day—or even every other day.
9:You're always itchy.
10:You catch every cold and flu.
11:Your lips crack, especially at the corners of your mouth.
12:Your skin is always breaking out.
