The vital clues our faces may be giving away (overview)
The human body is a truly marvellous structure. The composition of various types of cells, combined to create tissues and organs that all function together, enabling the structure to live, breathe and move. How truly privileged we are to be able to exist in such complex, yet beautifully put together structures.
Just the same, these complex structures are sensitive. Anything harmful can cause a domino effect of damage that ultimately disables the body from functioning as it should. If we look after ourselves, how beautifully we can flourish. Harm, however, can affect every inch of our bodies and manifest in ways obvious on the surface.
When last have you taken a good look at yourself in the mirror? Are you really as spick and span as you think you are?
Your body may be trying to tell you things about your overall condition that you may not be all that aware of at first. Typical tell-tale signs may be evident on your face and elsewhere, warning you that something isn’t functioning as it should.
Often, when you’re visiting your doctor for a check-up he or she may be tuned in to recognise certain facial traits you may not notice yourself at first. Sometimes there are subtle signs that reveal vital clues about what is going on in your body.
