1. Bloating and Gas
If your belly swells up after you eat a meal, you have a problem…
If it happens once in a while after a giant meal, that’s ok… but if it happens regularly, you should check for food sensitivity or allergy, or even Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
There are many foods that can mess with your digestion and you should figure out what they are for you.
Even your farts may be trying to tell you something… Farting is normally a sign of health since they’re often caused by the activity of your healthy gut bacteria. But gas can also be caused by poor eating habits, such as eating too fast and swallowing air.
Snoring when you have a cold is not something to be concerned about.
But if you’re snoring all the time, it could be a sign of sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that can put your life at risk.
If you snore loudly and always feel tired in the morning, you might have sleep apnea.
Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Loud snoring
- You sometimes stop breathing during sleep
- Looking for air during your sleep
- Waking up with a dry mouth
- Morning headache
- Hypersomnia (daytime sleepiness)
- Bad concentration
People think that feeling tired during the day is normal and that it goes hand in hand with having a busy life, but it doesn’t…
If you’re getting enough sleep but you still feel tired, it could be a sign of a nutritional deficiency, anemia, thyroid problems, hypertension, diabetes, or other health conditions.

Along with drinking water and eating food, sleep is the most important thing your body needs.
If you’re constantly having problems falling asleep or stay awake for long period of times during the night, you’re suffering from insomnia.
Insomnia is just a symptom of other hidden health problems. Don’t ignore it.
5. Bad breath
If you have a good oral hygiene and still have bad breath, it could be a sign that something is wrong in your mouth or elsewhere in your body.
See your dentist first, and if they don’t find anything wrong with you, go see your doctor or make some changes in your diet.
Having a headache now and then is not something you should be worried about. But if you start having them regularly or you just can’t seem to make the pain stop, you should see your doctor.
7. Muscle Cramps
If your muscles are cramping up for no reason, it’s a sign that there’s something wrong.
You should see a doctor if your cramps aren’t caused by exercise, and if you have:
- Severe discomfort
- Leg swelling or skin changes
- Muscle weakness
Muscle cramps can be a sign of:
- Inadequate blood supply
- Nerve compression
- Mineral deficiencies (potassium, calcium, or magnesium)
8. Nails and Hair
Healthy people usually have healthy looking nails.
It is very true to say that the allure of your nails is a sign of what’s going on in your body.
If your nails are a color other than pink, if they break or chip easily, it could be a symptom of a hidden problem.
The same is true if you are losing your hair. Yes, it can be from aging but it can also be caused heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications.
9. Weight Loss or Weight Gain
If you’re having trouble managing your weight, it’s most likely to be caused by your diet and a lack of exercise. But if you’re not trying to lose weight or gain weight but you are, there could be something causing this…
If you’re going to the bathroom more or less than usual, or if your poop don’t look the same as they normally do, it can be a sign of a medical issue.
Diarrhea is usually a symptom of food intolerances or a parasitic infection, while constipation is more likely to be caused by a diet that lacks fiber or an unbalanced flora.
The Bottom Line
If you’re experiencing some of the symptoms listed above, it could be a sign of a bigger health problem and you should look into fixing the problem.
A lot of times, these symptoms are simply the result of too many toxins in your body and an unbalanced flora.
