However, it actually demands so much more than that. Truth is, being truly healthy means that one should have a sense of ‘physical, mental, and social well-being, and the resources to live a full life.’
Of course, we don’t always think of it that way. In fact, in most cases, eating healthy and pairing it with consistent exercise is more than enough.
However, while being classified as ‘overweight’ or ‘underweight’ is an obvious sign of being unhealthy, there are also other not-so-obvious signs -ones that you may be ignoring.
And ones that may mean you’re not as healthy as you believe you are. Below are some of them.
Snoring: You may think it’s just an embarrassing act, but it can also indicate that you’re not that healthy. In fact, snoring is linked to a variety of health conditions, including sleep apnea, heart disease, and even stroke.
Constant skin breakouts: Skin breakouts are also a sign of general unhealthiness, and unfortunately, there’s no single cause. However, thanks to face mapping, we can now easily adjust our lifestyle based on where we get breakouts. Chin acne for example, means we have to eat healthier, while forehead acne means we need better sleep and hygiene.
The white of your eyes aren’t as white: This one is more subtle, but basically, if your eyes are a tad yellowish, it indicates that you may have complications in your bile ducts, gall bladder, liver or pancreas. There’s also red eyes, which come from lack of sleep and exhaustion.
Your nails have an odd colour and texture: A yellowish colour in your nails is believed to be caused by fluid build-up and inadequate circulation in the body.
Being gassy: Excessive gas can be signs of an irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance, and celiac disease.
Constant exhaustion: This one is obvious, but continuous exhaustion means that you may have iron deficiency, too little exercise, and even dehydration.
Your urine doesn’t have a pale colour: The colour, smell, and density of urine can reveal what’s going on in our body. And in this case, having urine that has a darker colour or has a strong scent means that you should probably get yourself checked by a doctor ASAP.
