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.

Rubbing Your Eyes

This habit is commonly a sign of stress. Dry eyes also occur naturally with age, especially with hormonal changes, allergies or medications. But if you’ve also been experiencing fatigue and joint pain, your dry eyes could be a sign of an autoimmune disease like lupus, which occur when your body’s immune system attacks healthy tissues. Normally, your eyes are able to moisten themselves – but if you have an autoimmune disorder, your inflamed glands aren’t able to produce enough tears to wash away dust or debris. If your eyes are often irritated or scratchy, look for a butterfly rash on your cheeks just below your eyes. Called a malar rash, this is a typical symptom of lupus.
