The Weird and Wonderful Ways Your Body Parts Connect And Reveal Your Health

Our bodies are wonderful things that are rather complex. And we know all about looking after them and keeping them healthy. But there are some ways to look after your health that you may not have ever realized or known about before. So when you think about getting healthier, there are the standard answers of drinking more water, exercising regularly, and eating well. But there are a few other ways that you might not have thought about before. Here are just a few alternative ways to keeping well, as well as some unique ways that our bodies are connected.


Feet and Your Body

Did you know that there are some sensors or receptors in your feet that mimic parts of the body? So if you do have an ailment, you can deal with it through some reflexology. It can help with stress levels, hormone imbalances, as well as easing pain. Many reflexologists can even tell if you’ve got pain somewhere, just by touching your feet. It is pretty interesting; have you ever tried it before?

Eyes and Brain

The brain is hidden away, so it is hard to be able to tell its health all of the time, apart from some obvious symptoms. However, a study in 2013 found that the veins in your eyes can reveal how healthy your brain is. Small blood vessels were found to mean a healthier brain than if they were larger. Eyes determine your vision of course, but can show signs of things like dementia too. So having regular eye appointments is a really good idea.


Teeth and Your Heart

How on earth can your teeth and heart be connected? Sounds strange but it is true! Many studies in the past, and even in recent times, have shown a connection between gum disease, heart disease, and other serious conditions. Oral health isn’t a key to heart disease prevention, but it is still showing a connection, so it is vital to take care of your teeth and gums by visit your local dentist regularly. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day goes without saying, right?

Skin and Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is something else that is hidden and can be hard to diagnose, unless you happen to have a monitor of your own. But there have been studies that show the connection between blood pressure and your skin. It was shown in a study by Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands, that if you had higher blood pressure or were more at risk of high blood pressure, your skin was much more wrinkled than those with low blood pressure. So although it isn’t an exact science, it can be something worth monitoring.

As you can see, there are some weird and wonderful ways that our bodies are connected; it really can be fascinating. Making sure that you are eating well and exercising regularly can help a lot of ailments. But looking out for some of these things can be a good idea too.
