What Your Nails Say About Your Health

Our bodies give us all sorts of signs about what’s happening on the inside. We can’t exactly get a message from the lungs saying: “CANCER DETECTED” but the body can warn us about things like cancer, or other diseases, in other ways. So let’s see what our fingernails can tell us about our body’s health.

#1)      Brittle, flexible, split nails

This can be a sign of ageing, or a Vitamin A deficiency. It can also be a sign that you need to lay off the manicures and false nails.

#2)      White spots

Having white spots on your fingernails can be a sign of a variety of problems: deficiencies of everything ranging from proteins to calcium, fungal diseases and allergic reactions. Basically, drink some milk, then go see a doctor.
