Body Signs

Body Signs

How to be Your Own Diagnostic Detective


We all notice things about our body that are annoying, weird, perplexing or downright embarrassing. Our hair may suddenly become lifeless, or our nails brittle. We might feel like we are seeing stars. These are body signs. If we learn how to decode them, they can tell us a lot about the state of our health . . .

These medical messages are not merely random occurrences. Rather, they are sent by our bodies to warn us that something may be out of kilter. Body Signs is about how our bodies communicate our internal health status through external signs — and reveals the connection between these outward signs and the inner workings of our bodies.

From head to toe, Body Signs will help you tune into what your body is telling you and read the signals. Based on the very latest scientific research and expert opinions of leading physicians, this is a fascinating and essential reference book for anyone interested in their health.
