5 Signs Your Overall Health Isn’t As Great As You Think

This could be you:

You don’t get sick much and you’re fit. Perhaps you train with someone. Maybe you do yoga. You and the gym are well acquainted. You try to eat healthy or perhaps, you attempt to eat healthy but sometimes fail. You feel pretty good and you assume you’re really healthy in general.

Of course, you do have some aches and pains or foods that just seem to bother you…but you can never explain why. WebMD said your aches and pains were just from strain or maybe age, so you power through and go about your day. But at night, when the dull pain keeps you awake, you wonder if there’s something else going on.

Or this could be you:

You get sick from time to time and you’re not thrilled with your current weight, but you manage to get by and feel pretty good most of the time. You do tend to wonder, “Why am I always tired?” but you figure maybe it’s stress or your busy lifestyle. Maybe it’s because you’re a new parent. Maybe it’s many reasons, you figure.

Maybe, your stomach is a hot mess. From bloating to gassiness to constipation, your digestive system is a fickle friend. But you can power through the symptoms and get on with your day, so you’re probably healthy enough, right?

When should you be concerned? 

If you are experiencing certain symptoms on a consistent basis, it may be time to schedule a consultation with your doctor or a Functional Medicine practitioner. Oftentimes, gastrointestinal issues, trouble sleeping, low energy levels, pain around the body, weight gain, and even symptoms related to autoimmune conditions can be worsened due to the types of foods you are eating. Some people have hidden food sensitivities/allergies or micro-nutrient deficiencies that trigger their symptoms.

For some, undiagnosed issues with hormones, the endocrine system, the thyroid, cardiovascular health, metabolic diseases, or pain and fatigue syndromes can lead to intermittent or chronic symptoms that affect your health and quality of life. If this is the case, your nutritionist can work with you to develop the skills, knowledge, diet roadmap, and neutraceutical supplement package necessary to restore your health and properly fuel your body.

Here are 5 signs that your overall health isn’t as great as you think it is. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and are concerned about your overall health, consider making an appointment with a functional medicine practitioner/nutritionist who can evaluate your overall health and develop a plan to get you back to living your best life.
