Did you know that there are some health problems that we can have without even knowing it? Sometimes our organs are not working properly, but we may not realize it because we don’t feel any pain.
Luckily, our body has other warning signs that give us a heads up that something might be wrong.
This is primarily for women, but if you notice dark hair sprouting up on your chin, it could be a sign of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a disorder caused by hormonal imbalance.
PCOS can create long-term problems with reproductive health. It is typically driven by an imbalance of insulin. The best tool I know for balancing your insulin levels is rotational fasting.
If you want to learn more about rotational fasting, I made a video that covers everything you need to know that you can check out here.
If you notice dark patches of skin on your arms, armpits, or neck, it could be a sign that you have too much insulin in your blood.
The patches almost look like you have a dirt patch on your skin and feel soft.
This means you are either pre-diabetic, or may have type two diabetes. You could be unaware that this condition is going on, so these patches could be a lifesaver.
Type two diabetes puts your kidneys and limbs at risk due to lack of blood flow.
High insulin levels are one of the major driving factors of heart disease. If you see these, I recommend getting your insulin and blood sugar levels tested.
Your fasting insulin should be between 2-6, and you should also check your glucose, which should be under 100.
Again, rotational fasting will help you reduce these high insulin levels.
Red Spot On Eye
If you notice a red spot on your eye that regularly occurs, it’s a sign of high blood pressure and/or diabetes. It’s called a subconjunctival hemorrhage.
Your blood pressure could be high and you might be completely unaware, so if you notice one of these spots, it’s a sign to check your blood pressure levels.
If you are struggling with blood pressure issues, I made a video about a hack that can lower your blood pressure in just one minute.
Swollen Big Toe
If you have a swollen big toe and don’t remember stubbing it, then what’s most likely going on is gout. Gout means that there’s an increase in the amount of uric acid inside of your system, which can be very painful.
This can also be a sign that your blood pressure is up, your blood sugar is off, or that you’re having problems with your kidneys.
A quick remedy for gout is mixing ½ – 1 teaspoon of baking soda with water to drink.
This makes your blood and digestive tract more alkaline, which will help lower a gout flare up.
If you have to use the restroom all the time, it’s an indication of a UTI, diabetes, or some kind of infection. This is especially the case for women. Your urine can tell you a lot about what’s going on with you and your energy levels.
If your urine is pink, that’s a sign that there’s blood in your urine and you have an infection. This means there’s irritation in the kidneys or tubules that carry urine out of your body.
Dark & Cloudy
If your urine is dark and cloudy, that means you’re dehydrated. You need to drink more water, and ensure that you’re absorbing it. I recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces everyday.
Very Dark (Like Soda)
If your urine is very dark like cola, that’s a sign of kidney damage. It could be a sign that you have muscle damage as well. This is an emergency that you should seek immediate medical attention for.
If your mouth is burning, it could be a number of different things. It could be that you have metal fillings that have caused allergic or other reactions.
Metal implants can also accumulate microbes in the mouth and create an imbalance in the digestive tract.
This can lead to an inflammatory response, autoimmune conditions, weight gain, and candida imbalances.
If you experience this, I recommend doing a gut reset, which I did a training on that you can check out for more information here.
If your mouth is burning, address any metal implants, perform proper oral care, and address your gut.
Lump In The Belly
If you see a soft bulge around the belly button, it could be an umbilical hernia. It signifies a weakness in the abdominal muscle, and is very common in women post-pregnancy.
If you want to improve your abdominal muscle, focus on your abs, core muscles, and pelvic floor muscles. I have a training that breaks this down so you can focus on your core and pelvic muscles to strengthen it back up.
If you don’t do anything, you could have part of your digestive tract poke through and it could be cut off and create more problems. Creating abdominal muscles will prevent this from happening.
Frequent Canker Sores
If you’re constantly getting canker sores (sores on the inside of the mouth), it’s a sign that you need more zinc in your diet. Your immune system might be run down, but this is primarily poor gut health that’s causing this.
Your digestive system is likely struggling with inflammation and digesting your food.
If you want to start cleaning up your gut health, check out my gut health start training here.
If you get frequent canker sores, you could also use my GI support, which will help support your gut as well.
If your hair is thinning, especially in the eyebrows, this is a sign that you should look at your thyroid. It could mean your thyroid isn’t properly functioning, that you don’t have enough blood flow, or are getting insufficient nutrients.
If you need help with thyroid health, I also have a thyroid training that you can check out here.
If you bruise easily, this means you are deficient in vitamin C. You can fix this easily by getting the following foods that are high in vitamin C in:
You can also supplement with vitamin C to get small amounts of it throughout the day to build it back up.
If you’re looking for a good vitamin C supplement, you can find the one I use here, that uses bioflavonoids which help your body absorb it better.
If you have itchy skin, it’s a sign that your liver is struggling. There can be a lot of warning signs when it comes to liver health, and liver damage, cirrhosis, fat buildup in the liver can be very dangerous.
Over 50% of Americans are dealing with liver problems right now. If your liver shuts down, every other organ is significantly impacted.
