Everybody is so preoccupied with a million and twelve things at once that it can be easy to ignore the one thing we should be listening to most — our bodies.
Of course we notice the big things, but what about the size of your nose? Your sweat? Yeah, there are a lot of things your body is trying to tell you about…if you listen. Like your finger nails. They tell an awful lot about your overall health, but more on that later.
First of all, what happens to your body when you drink alcohol? After just one minute of drinking, the alcohol gets absorbed into your bloodstream.
After five minutes, it reaches your brain and you might be a little more apt to dance on the table. Your muscles will be affected, which means your coordination will suffer, which means you will not be a Dancing Queen for long. After thirty minutes, you’ll be completely relaxed.
Forty-five minutes later, the liver is working overtime to process the alcohol and well, look at that dude. Then, an hour later, the kidneys send everything to your bladder, so best find yourself a restroom.
An hour into your drinking, your body is already dehydrated. This is the main reason for those nasty hangovers the next day, and why they recommend a glass of water in between your glass of whatever else got you that way.
1. There’s a bunch of stuff that we can’t ignore when it comes to our bodies such as body odor, weird spots, and poor posture.
It’s never too late to become interested in how your body runs and what its needs are. A healthy diet void of processed foods, daily exercise, and enhancing the mind by reading are just some of the basic hacks you can apply to start noticing improvements in your life. Your body isn’t just a vessel that you can control all the time. It’s a complex mixture of elements, most of which we don’t really know anything about. That’s why we’re here to help. Let’s get started with what happens to your body when you drink alcohol. After just 1 minute of drinking, the alcohol gets absorbed into your bloodstream. After 5 minutes, it reaches your brain. Your muscles will be affected, which means your coordination will suffer.
2. After 30 minutes, you’ll be completely relaxed.
45 minutes later, the liver is working overtime to process the alcohol. Then, an hour later, the kidneys send everything to your bladder. An hour into your drinking, your body is already dehydrated. This is the main reason for those nasty hangovers the next day.
3. What do your odors tell you about your body? Let’s start with sweat.
If it smells like acetone, you might be having blood sugar level problems. If it smells like ammonia, it could mean kidney and liver problems. So if you find that your sweat is smelling very peculiar, go visit a doctor to eliminate any possible health risks.
4. There are also other health risks you may have that may be contributing to the smell of your sweat.
If your sweat smells like hydrogen sulfide, you could have gastrointestinal problems. If it smells like honey, it could mean a case of cystitis. If it smells like vinegar, if could mean a vitamin B and D deficiency.
5. Let’s move on to your breath.
Non-stop bad breath could be a sign of kidney problems, throat infections, lung problems, gum disease, or even problems with your digestive tract. So if you find that no matter how much you rinse your mouth with mouthwash your breath still smells, take a trip to the doctor’s office.
6. When it comes to urine, things start to get more serious.
If it smells like fish, it could mean a venereal disease. If it smells sour, it could mean gastritis. If you’re urine is unusually dark, it probably means that you’re dehydrated and that you should drink some more water.
