7 Surprising Signs That Indicate You Are Not As Healthy As You Think You Are!

By Chandana Rao

Mahatma Gandhi once said, "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver". Most of us can surely relate to this thought, because we know that without good health, we will never be able to lead a quality life!

Imagine that you have everything that you ever needed, a great job, a loving family, fun friends, good looks, etc., but if you are suffering from a disease, be it mental or physiological, you can never enjoy the great life that you have, completely!

Another fact about diseases is that, it can not only affect the people suffering from the diseases, but these can also affect the people around, such as their near and dear ones!

Especially with some forms of fatal diseases and certain mental disorders, it can be painful for the family and friends to watch the victims suffer.

Additionally, medical care can also be extremely expensive and may not be successful many times!

So, considering all the above-mentioned implications of bad health, one must always ensure that one takes care of one's health and does everything in his power to avoid getting diseases.

As we may know, a healthy lifestyle can be one of the key factors to prevent many forms of diseases.

Eating a balanced nutritious diet, exercising every day, managing stress, etc., can be some of the things one can do on a regular basis to stay in good health for a long time.

Now, many a times, there are diseases that do not show any apparent symptoms, so, it can become really hard for people to diagnose them and get treated in time.

So, one must not simply assume that one is healthy and must always be on the guard.

So, here are a few signs that can indicate that you may not be as healthy as you think you are!

1. Bloating

If you are constantly bloated, it may not be just gas, but could be a sign of serious ailments like food allergy, stomach ulcers and even colon cancer!

2. Smelly Gas

If your flatulence is pungent all the time (and not just once in a while), it is not normal and could indicate a number of digestive disorders.

3. Fatigue

If you have been feeling tired without any reason, you must not take it lightly, as it could indicate a number of diseases, ranging from anaemia to cancer!

4. Bad Breath

If you have bad breath, even with good oral hygiene, it could indicate a condition known as halitosis or could even be sinusitis.

5. Constant Headache

If you are experiencing headaches on a regular basis, do not think that it is a simple problem that will go away, as it could indicate a whole range of ailments starting from indigestion to brain tumour.

6. Muscle Cramps

Getting muscle cramps often can be a sign of nutritional deficiencies and osteoporosis.

7. Weight Loss/Gain

If you have been losing or gaining significant amounts of weight, without making an actual effort, it could also be a sign of ill health too!
