5 Body Signs You Shouldn't Ignore

If we don’t look after ourselves properly, our bodies are very effective in ‘telling’ us there’s a problem – displaying symptoms like fatigue, poor memory, poor mood, poor sleep, sluggish bowels and other concerns.

Often we buy over the counter medicines to relieve these issues but don’t address the root cause of the problem and this can lead to greater health issues later on.

It’s important not to let important issues to go ignored and untreated. Your body really is an expert at telling you what’s wrong.

Here’s our Top 5 Body Symptoms You Really Shouldn’t Ignore:

1. Food Cravings

If you have very particular food cravings this can be an indication of nutritional deficiencies, emotional upset or stress. This is something that is usually ignored or accepted but can indicate an underlying health issue.

2. Fatigue

If you wake up feeling fatigued or tired, instead of refreshed and ready for your day, this is usually a strong indication that you’re not sleeping soundly or for long enough. If you think you are sleeping for long enough and feel that you sleep well and are still feeling tired when you wake it can be a symptom of a larger health issue, such as anaemia, immune dysfunction or chronic infection, amongst others. People often use caffeine and sugar to keep themselves going but this only aggravates the issue.

3. Headaches

Dehydration is one of the most common reasons for a headache and it’s important to drink plenty of water throughout the day. There can be many other reasons such as infection, eye strain, lack of proper rest or stress. Make sure you’re well hydrated but if symptoms persist see a health professional.

4. Irregular Bowel Motions

Constipation and diarrhoea are both unhealthy in the long term. Constipation may indicate a slow bowel, affect the health of the colon in the long term and may contribute to fatigue and poor mood. Diarrhoea can affect nutrient absorption in the long term. A healthy motion is vital to long term health. Drinking of adequate amounts of water and having enough fibre in your diet should help. If symptoms persist, you should consult a health professional.

5. Unstable Blood Sugar Levels

Often this is manifested by experiencing an energy slump and people usually reach for a refined snack for an energy boost. It is usually indicative of a lack of well balanced meals and regular eating habits, causing worsening eating habits and poor weight control.
