These body messages are telling you that something is TERRIBLY WRONG…are you paying attention

With the busy lifestyles that many of us lead, we all too often neglect the importance of a healthy and balanced diet. Proper eating habits can go a long way to staving off conditions like obesity, but they also ensure that our bodies have the proper micronutrients to properly function. Too many of us neglect the impact that a proper balance of micronutrients has on the body, and the results can be quite alarming. Our bodies have ways of telling us that something is wrong, and these commonly dismissed signs can be indicative of something much greater.

Cold Hands


Cold hands can be caused by a variety of conditions. It is common in those who are suffering from a weak immune system and bad blood circulation, but it is most often simply a sign of cold weather. However, some cases have been shown to be caused by an iodine deficiency. Iodine is imperative to proper thyroid function and can be naturally increased by eating more cod, shrimp, tuna, seaweed and baked potatoes.

Soft And Brittle Nails

The condition of your nails is very reflective of your body’s overall state of health. If you have nails that are soft and very brittle, you might be suffering from a deficiency in magnesium. This deficiency can lead to different problems including poor nail growth, high blood pressure, anxiety, muscle pain and weakness. If this sounds like something you are going through, you might want to try eating more dark leafy greens, fish, whole grains and dried fruit.

Spots On Nails

Most people have white spots on their nails at some point during their lives, but it is when they are in abundance that it might be a sign of a more serious issue. An excessive amount of these white spots is indicative of a zinc deficiency. Having a deficiency in zinc is easily remedied by consuming more seafood, spinach, cashews, beans and mushrooms.
