10 THINGS YOUR BODY CAN TELL YOU ABOUT YOUR HEALTH

1. Cracked and dry lips

If you experience this problem often, it may signal an allergic reaction or dehydration. According to the New Zealand Dermatological Society, the most common causes are lip cosmetics, medicines, oral hygiene, metals and foodstuffs.

2. Swollen feet

Swelling of the legs is not uncommon. In fact, this can be expected when women are pregnant or after people spend countless hours on their feet. However, when there is no obvious reason, tell your doctor.

3. Pale language

Under normal conditions, your tongue should be pink, moist and the taste buds should be visible. If your tongue is dry and pale, it may indicate an iron deficiency, according to acupuncturist Katie Clifton. A quick blood test will tell you if your iron level is very low.
