Our skin is our largest organ & therefore is hugely influential. It helps stop bacteria, control temperature, & give us the sensation of touch. No wonder that when something is wrong on our insides, that it can show up in our skin. Below are a few signs that appear when your body is trying to tell you something.
• Yellow / orangey skin (inc soles of hands & feet) may indicate an underactive thyroid as it isn’t processing beta–carotene properly.
• Long dark lines on your palms suggest an issue with the adrenal gland, part of the endocrine system.
• Tingly feeling followed by a rash on one side of the body may be a symptom of shingles, a virus that can be stimulated by stress or infection.
• People with over 400 moles on their body may have a higher risk of skin cancer but their internal organs age slightly slower due to the length of the telomere in their cells!
Now that I’ve made you all super paranoid about your tongue, feet, eyes, & skin, remember not to go looking for these signs – just be aware of them. If you’re worried, as always consult your doctor. Most of all I hope this recent blog theme has shown just how amazing your body is, so eat clean, exercise regularly & look after it!
