Fatigue and pain
Are you cranky after a day of shopping or a long walk? Can you hardly stand for a longer period of time? Or are you waiting at the bottom of the hill while the rest of your family makes a hike?

If you are insatiable and think about food all day, then you have a good chance that your insulin is not working the way it should. You can even develop type II diabetes with all unpleasant consequences for your blood vessels. Time for action and change in your lifestyle!
Painful muscles and joints
The muscles and joints in the body are an important part of our daily lives, but above all when you exercise regularly, injuries then often occur. When you say that you are suffering from an injury, you admit to what your body is trying to tell you for probably a longer period of time. If you neglect important signals, you may properly encounter yourself. Even athletes who have been injury free for years still can become overconfident and suddenly get injured.
Nice being pregnant, but still…
A pregnancy is a period of great change. Every woman, however, experiences these changes differently. Some women feel better than ever for nine months, but in this period, many women also experience physical complaints that sometimes overshadows the beautiful process of being pregnant. Pelvic pain, lower back pain, varicose veins, fluid retention and the inability to get rid of the excess pregnancy kilos after the birth.
Our body is made for scarcity, not abundance. It’s really good in retaining but really bad in letting it go. Therefore it is easier to gain than to lose weight. For centuries, mankind had to live on anything eatable that nature provided. Now that the power over food is taken over by an industry based on marketing and making money, our bodies have become upset. This has been going on for years, and more and more people have problems with their bodies. Moreover, there are dozens of diets thrown on the market, which all make us believe that we will lose weight when we follow that diet. Yet the number of overweight people continues to grow.
