There’s a lot of WTF health and wellness information that’s out there and it’s hard to figure it out, make sense of and what to believe. You may even think some of mine is WTF?
I’m a big proponent of not drinking ice water as it’s hard on the body. You may think, wtf? I’ve even gotten pushback, my favorite being “But doesn’t drinking ice water help you burn more calories?!” If that’s your diet plan for a 6 pack bro, you’ll be drinking a lot of ice water, seeing no results and getting bloated and gassy along the way. Not sexy. When you add ice cold water to a hot body, it creates internal steam, which is a hot gas and it expands (aka causes some bloating and gas) and creates inflammation.
But here are some WTF symptoms your body is providing that may seem normal or that wouldn’t really make you think it was a sign of anything larger. These are often the result of chronic stress, that result in inflammation which leads to longer term health issues.
Bleeding gums could be a sign of low grade inflammation in the body. is a sign of leaky gut and a potential autoimmune disorder. If you haven’t heard of leaky gut, perhaps spend a bit of time on the Googs. WE can no longer treat disease in isolation
Dark Circles under your eyes, extreme tiredness between 5-7pm and the arches of your feet are achy is a sign of kidney imbalance. This will show up when you don’t feel grounded or have a stable foundation. You may be experiencing some worry, fear or anxiety. This showed up for me big time when I moved from NYC to LA and had the most stressful job I’ve ever had.
Horizontal lines on the underside of your fingers between your knuckles is a sign of adrenal fatigue. Your adrenals are glands that sit on top of your kidneys and produce adrenaline and cortisol. Too much adrenaline, your body thinks it’s in fight or flight mode, which kicks off a thyroid response and will create an over or under overproduction of certain hormones, ie hypo or hyperthyroid.
Do any of these symptoms make you think WTF?
