Body Talk

What if... our bodies are trying to tell us something?

Often times, they are, and they’re rather good at it too. They let us know when we are in pain, as in when we’ve broken or bruised something. They also let us know when we are lacking. Be it with hunger or thirst or even something more specific (ie. cravings). But, lets go even deeper than that...

Do you ever get those little white smudges under your finger nails? That’s your body telling you you have a zinc deficiency. Either that, or you injured it. How can you tell? Have you had any painful accidents where that finger nail was in the middle of it?

Or what about those grooves in the nail? Some call it a spooning of the nail. It is due to a lack of iron.

And these are just minor ways in which our body lets us know when something is up! What is your body telling you? Are you listening?
