Human bodies function in the same way, yet individuals very in their bodies specifics. While it may seem contradictory, the latter is true. While all of us are subject to the same gene pool and developmental process of the human species, each of us are shaped by our environment.
Your everyday activities and lifestyles have an effect on your body, as it reacts to the stimuli around it. Therefore, your body really is a representation of you – what you consume and surround yourself with.
Here are some things the nature of your body can tell you about yourself.
1. What impact does alcohol have on your body?
2. 1 minute of drinking and the alcohol is in your bloodstream. 5 minutes of drinking and the alcohol has made its way to your brain, meaning it can interfere with your coordination.
3. When 30 minutes pass, you’ll feel the relaxation over come you. Just 15 minutes later when you hit the 45 minute mark, your liver is already working hard in processing the alcohol. When you hit the one hour mark, the kidneys sent the waste to your bladder.
4. It’s no secret that alcohol dehydrates you. But when does the dehydrating start to occur? Merely an hour into the drinking process.
5. The body secretes different odors, and each type of odor indicates different physiological conditions. Let’s start by discussing sweat. If your sweat smells like acetone, there is chance you are having blood sugar level issues. On the other hand, if it smells like ammonia, it could be linked to kidney and liver problems.
6. Sweat that smells like hydrogen sulfide is indicative of gastrointestinal problems. Smell of honey is linked to cystitis while a smell of vinegar is linked to vitamin B and D deficiency.
7. Now let’s talk about breath. Non-stop bad breath can be due to kidney problems, throat infections, lung problems, gum disease and even possible problems with your digestive tract.
8. The odor of urine is even more serious. If your urine smells like fish, you could be victim to a venereal disease. If it smells sour, you should look for other symptoms of gastritis.
9. The shape of your nose can actually reveal personality traits. A primary example is the Greek nose. Those with the latter are often family-oriented and avoid being the center of attention.
10. A Roman nose is observed among those who are critical thinkers. These individuals like to take risks. However, when it comes to their morals and principles, they don’t mess around.
11. The Aquiline nose is observed among those who are very neat, sincere and ambitious.
12. Those who have a straight nose are often impulsive. They like to follow their instincts and act on their feelings when making decisions.
13. The upturned nose. If you have an upturned nose, then you are honest, unpredictable, genuine and good company to those around you. You are very calm and collected, and that makes you efficient at solving problems.
14. Those who have a nose with the small bump are often sensitive, overthink but are also very vocal in what they believe. They are admired for their strength in representing what they believe.
15. A nose with a large bump indicates that the individual is a good listener and a good friend. These are the people you want to keep close because their loyalty is hard to find.
16. Nubian nose is a sign of a good helper and a good thinker. These individuals are positive, and take on their problems with a positive approach, making them successful in getting out of tricky situations.
17. Did you know that your body has evolved to have instinctive defense mechanisms? For example, stretching. While it may not seem like a big deal, stretching prepared your body for any physical activity.
18. Yawning is another one of these defensive mechanisms. There are many theories as to why we yawn and there is still uncertainty as to which reason is the right one. However, scientistsss believe that is has to do with regulating our body temperature.
19. Why do your fingers prune when their after water for too long? It’s actually a means of evolution that has developed an ability to maintain grip even in the slippery situations.
20. Sneezing is a great defense mechanism. It helps your body put off those little invaders by resetting and refreshing your nasal passage.
21. Goosebumps are meant to provide your body with extra warmth by straightening the hair on your skin. Yet again, another defense mechanism.
22. There is a theory in psychology that states that individuals can actually wipe their own memory from painful and traumatic memories in order to steer from the psychological and emotional problems that arise from them.
23. As annoying as hiccups can be, they are actually a defense mechanisms. They arise when you irritate your diaphragm through processes like eating too quickly or getting nervous. The hiccups are means of your body regulating what enters your stomach.
24. Why do we instinctively cringe at high-pitches noises? Research has revealed that cringing is a primal instinct because such high-pitched noises mimic the cries of our primate ancestors.
25. The way your skin reacts to external stimuli can give you insight about your body. If you observe red spots on your backside, it can mean that your hygiene is relatively poor or that your underwear is irritating your skin.
26. Acne and red sports on your chin and neck can indicated the overactivity of your adrenal glands.
27. Spotting on your shoulders and back can imply a possible problem with your digestion.
28. The shape of your feet can actually reveal certain characteristics of your personality. Type A is associated with private yet moody individuals. Meanwhile, type B is indicative that you are reasonable and reliable. If you’re type C than you’re sporty and have a creative mind. On the other hand, type D is found among social and outgoing individuals.
