  • 13 Health Problems the Moons on Your Nails Warn You About

    If you look at your fingernails, you’ll notice light areas at the base. These are moons, or lunulae. Their change in color, shape, or size can indicate not only the presence of a disease but also the predisposition to it. Such diagnostics help you notice the problem in time and take action.

    When a lunula changes on one finger

    • A lunula on the little finger, as a rule, should be almost unnoticeable or completely absent. It’s connected with the work of the kidneys, small intestine, and heart. An increased lunula can be a result of high blood pressure.

    • The ring finger is responsible for the work of the reproductive and lymphatic systems. A barely visible lunula can hint at digestion problems.

    • The middle finger is connected with the work of the brain and cardiovascular system. The absence of a lunula can indicate vascular problems and high blood pressure.

    • The index finger lunula can disappear or get considerably smaller because of improper function of the intestine, pancreas, or chronic E.N.T. diseases.

    • The lunula on the thumb reflects the work of the lungs and spleen. It’s the most visible of all and should take up no more than 25% of the whole fingernail. It can get significantly smaller in smokers or bigger when you have arterial hypertension.

     

    Overly large lunulae

    Lunulae are considered large when they occupy a third (or more) of the fingernail. They indicate problems with the cardiovascular system, heartbeat disruption, and low blood pressure.

    Large lunulae can be often found in athletes and people whose occupation is connected with physical activity. If a person isn’t involved in sports, enlarged lunulae may appear because of a high level of stress.

    Small lunulae

    Small lunulae, which can be barely seen behind the cuticle, indicate low blood pressure and circulatory disorders. This can be a sign of a weak immune system, poor metabolism, or lack of iron and B12.

    If the lunulae are noticeably separated from the rest of the nail plate with transverse lines, it indicates problems with blood sugar levels and the possible development of diabetes.

     

    Lunulae aren’t visible at all

    Don’t panic if you haven’t found lunulae on your own or your child’s nails. They’re often not visible on children’s nails and appear over time. In some people, they don’t appear at all due to physiological specificities of the nail structure.

    However, a sudden disappearance of lunulae is perceived by modern medicine as one of the symptoms of a circulatory disorder. This study showed that the absence of lunulae is connected with thyroid gland disorders and a deficit of vitamin B12 and iron.

    Change in lunulae color

    1. Gray lunulae indicate severe fatigue, digestion disorders, and possible difficulties in nutrient absorption.

    2. White lunulae are healthy and natural. The moons should be several shades lighter than the skin.

    3. Purple lunulae are a sign of poor blood circulation and a lack of oxygen in the organs and tissues. Dizziness and headaches may often occur.

    4. Pink (red) lunulae may indicate low physical activity and lung problems.

    5. Black lunulae are an uncommon and extremely dangerous sign. As a rule, this is a symptom of heavy metal poisoning.

  • This Japanese Method Will Help You Quickly Get Rid of Belly Fat

    Japanese actor Miki Ryosuke recently discovered an interesting method that helped him to lose 13 kg (28.7 lb) and 12 cm (4.7″) from the waist in just a few weeks. This result was a side effect of a back pain relief exercise prescribed to him by a doctor, and this exercise takes him only 2 minutes a day.

     


    Ryosuke called it a long-breath diet. The technique lies in taking a certain position, taking a three-second breath, and then a strong exhalation for seven seconds.

    Most European doctors support the use of breathing exercises for weight loss and explain their effectiveness as follows: fat consists of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. When the oxygen we breathe in reaches the fat cells, it splits them into components (carbon and water). Therefore, the more oxygen our body uses, the more fat we burn.

    Perform the exercise every day for 2-10 minutes.

    • Stand up, and push one leg forward and the other back.
    • Now you need to strain your buttocks and transfer your weight to your back foot.
    • Start slowly inhaling for 3 seconds, lifting your arms above your head.
    • Then exhale forcefully for 7 seconds, straining all your body’s muscles.


    In addition, as experts say, this technique will strengthen the body’s muscles and increase metabolism.

  • Science Confirms: The More Coffee You Drink, The Longer You Will Live

    Coffee is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet.

    It is more than just dark-colored liquid with caffeine… coffee actually contains hundreds of different compounds, some of which have important health benefits.

    Several massive studies have now shown that the people who drink the most coffee live longer and have a reduced risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s and diabetes.

    Coffee is a Major Source of Antioxidants
    Young Brunette Enjoying Cup of Coffee

    When hot water runs through the coffee grounds while brewing, the substances in the coffee beans mix with the water and become part of the drink.

    Some of these substances are well known, including caffeine, but there are hundreds of other compounds in there as well, many of which science has yet to identify.

    Many of these compounds are antioxidants that protect our bodies from oxidation, which involves free radicals that damage molecules in the body.

    Without getting into complicated details, oxidation is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind ageing and common diseases like cancer and heart disease.

    Coffee, believe it or not, happens to be the biggest source of antioxidants in the Western diet, outranking both fruits and vegetables… combined (1, 2, 3).

    When you’re treating yourself with a cup of coffee, you’re not only getting caffeine but a whole bunch of other beneficial compounds, including powerful antioxidants.

  • 6 COMMONLY MISSED SIGNS OF OVARIAN CANCER...

    1. Swollen or Bloated Abdomen

    Swelling happens when fluid, called ascites, is trapped in the Abdominal cavity This is a symptom that occurs later as the disease progresses, but can still be blamed on other health issues. Thus, it is important to keep track of your health and compare this symptom to any of the other signs below.

    2. Persistent Pain in the Abdomen or Pelvis

    Chronic pain that displays itself in the abdomen or pelvis is a clear sign that something is wrong. This is a symptom for both ovarian cancer and ovarian cysts. Any pain that does not go away after a couple of days should be taken very seriously.

    3. Feeling Full or Difficulty Eating

    Oddly enough, women who are suffering from ovarian cancer will feel full faster and will have difficulty eating as much as usual. This is most likely because the cancer is disrupting the hormones that control metabolism.

    04: Urinary Problems

    Increase urination is a sign of ovarian cancer. The fluid that builds up, and causes the swelling mentioned above will push on the bladder. This is why women with ovarian cancer will need to use the restroom more often. Unfortunately, this symptom is often attributed to bladder problems.
     
    05: Change in Bowel Movements
     
    Any change in bowel movements, or constipation or diarrhea, could be a sign of ovarian cancer. This could be because the cancer has spread to the colon or because pressure from fluid buildup could be affecting the area.
     
    06: Spotting Between Periods
     
    Spotting can be linked to several different health issues, and one of them is ovarian cancer. Any abnormal bleeding should be mentioned to a health care professional. It is not normal and is commonly linked to serious reproductive system health problems.
    Of course, one or two of the symptoms listed above could be attributed to another, less serious health problem. That is why ovarian cancer often goes undiagnosed for months.
