What Your Body Language Says About Your Health

Body language sends powerful messages about what you’re thinking and feeling – but that’s not all. Nonverbal cues could also provide insight about your health. The expression on your face, the way you sit, stand or walk all could be valuable clues. Learn about the hidden signals your body is sending you and what they mean for your health.

Frequent Bruising

Bruises should turn from reddish blue to yellow in two weeks. If you’re frequently finding purple bruises, it could mean that your blood isn’t clotting properly, which means bruises and other wounds can’t heal properly. This can be a side effect of medications or supplements such as over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin, which have blood-thinning effects. Have your blood platelet levels checked to rule out a more serious blood disorder.
