When someone asks us what we think of intelligence, the first thing that comes to our mind is the human brain. But the fact is that our bodies’ are also intelligent.
We can explain the intelligence of the body by the process how it responds to internal stimuli. Just think about it, it is really one of the biggest machines. Just imagine how many processes are taking place in our body every second of our life. And because of this, sometimes we have an inherent ability to feel that there is something wrong.
What is not known is how often we pay attention to these feelings. Sometimes we ignore these body signs and that is when damage happens.
Some doctors think that our body and our health have become much more complicated because of the unwillingness or inability to understand what our body tries to tell us.
Because of this, our article is made to help you understand and notice the signals that your body sends you that may indicate a need for help.
It is really important to learn these signs in order to prevent illness or some disease that may be among the most crucial. You should also pay attention how, when and what our body is communicating to us to understand the message easier.
10 important signs your body is asking for help
1. Persistent dry skin
Skin is the largest organ on our body, and when it’s dry it can be really annoying and uncomfortable. Without vitamins, or particularly vitamin E, our skin will crack, itch and scale. To avoid all of these problems you should include more fish, nuts and healthy oils to your diet, or start consuming vitamin E supplements.
2. Brittleness of the hair and/or nails
Just like with the skin, vitamin deficiency can also cause brittle hair or nails. Here low levels of calcium and vitamin B can make these areas to dry, crack and scale. Try consuming more whole-grain bread, whole grains, milk, legumes and potatoes to avoid these problems.
3. Increased desire or consumption of sodium or salty foods
When we have salt-laden foods cravings that can often be a result that we need additional mineral supplementation. This can also indicate that there is inflammation or an infection somewhere in the body.
4. Increased desire or consumption of sugary foods
The lack of proper dieting can be a reason why our body has a lot of cravings. Besides this you can find different ways to counteract the cravings like drinking water, eating fresh and leafy greens, eating healthier and many other things.
5. Increased desire or consumption of raw foods
Foods like sushi, sashimi and cheese can cause imbalance within the gastrointestinal or digestive system. The reason behind this is that rad foods can be effective in alleviating uncomfortable condition such as gastroenteritis or cramping. You should try to supplement these raw foods with fresh and leafy veggies and fruits.
6. Increased desire or consumption of seafood.
We should think of seafood for a healthy dietary choice. But its increased desire can be a problem with two sides. Either our body has a lack of nutrients or minerals, or there is iodine deficiency. In order to ward off such cravings and make balance to our diet, we need to include fresh cuts of meat or poultry and get some sort of substitute for vegans/vegetarians.
Almost in every person when psoriasis or scaling occurs on the arms or elbows indicated that there is a lack of vitamins and minerals. The most important vitamins here are vitamin A and C. You should more often eat foods like apricots, carrots and oranges.
8. Cramping, poor sleep or insomnia
These three symptoms are the most dangerous ones. Many of these ailments can be alleviated by magnesium and potassium. Magnesium is a well-known inhibitor of neuronal activity, and potassium is the most important nutrient for brain, heart and muscle health. You should include more foods like green and leafy veggies, almonds, nuts, apricots, bananas, and plums to suppress or eliminate these symptoms.
9. Bleeding from the mouth or gums
Proper practice of oral care is essential to have healthy gums. Sometimes besides this, bleeding of the mouth or gums may also occur and that can be because of a lack of vitamin C. You can find vitamin c in fruits, veggies and garlic, or you can use supplements.
10. An increased desire for sour foods and beverages
We all know that hormonal changes in pregnant woman always lead to cravings of sore foods or drinks. But what we don’t know is that these foods can stimulate the liver and gall bladder and that can indicate a problem with one or both of them.
