Your body is calling out. Can you hear it?


It’s usually too late. You have a cold and then you remember that two days ago you felt an incredible headache that, if you had treated properly, you know you would have avoided all the trouble. Growing up, we tend to forget how to communicate with our bodies, like we did when we were little. So, we leave it all up to medicines to correct every signal we didn’t pay attention to, every sign that was calling out. Today, I am going to try and pinpoint just a few basic alarms that our body sets off, so you can start and get an idea of how to really listen to it.

Numb fingertips

This one is fairly easy, as it’s usually linked to a stiff neck. if you have been spending a lot of time in front of your computer, it’s possible that the nerves that pass through the back of your head have been having a bad time. As those nerves end up at your fingertips, they are sending you a signal to check what’s going on in the back of your head.

Bad breath

If it’s not something you ate or a tooth gone bad, having bad breath constantly could be a sign of trouble in your digestive system, diabetes or even a liver problem. But don’t be too alarmed, because it could also mean you are not getting enough to eat…

Sore muscles 

You think it’s because you’ve been working out like crazy, or maybe because you haven’t been working out at all…well, sometimes our muscles ache or just feel sore, simply because they are calling out for some magnesium. Check your intake, and if the pain insists visit a physician.


When they are constant and persistent, it could be a signal your body is sending out, to give it more water. Hydrate and check again. If it insists and it centers around one part of your head, it could probably mean you have just caught a cold. Stay warm, drink plenty of fluid and take some vitamin C.

Runny nose

It’s totally reasonable to have mucus when you have a cold. After all, it is a sign of infection in the area. But, what happens when it becomes second nature, with no other symptoms to justify it? According to, your nose and throat glands create up to 2 quarts of mucus every day, to shield your lungs from dust, bacteria, exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, viruses, and other intruders. But when it turns green that means your body’s immune system is at work. The color comes from a type of infection-fighting white blood cell, and when you learn how to identify it, it can help you start supporting your immune system much earlier.

P.S. This article only reaches the tip of the iceberg. Whenever you are not feeling well, you should always check with your health provider and not stick to what you read on the Internet.
