If you are like most of Western society, your mind is trained to target whatever might be wrong with you.
Of course you will notice things which you would like to change, but how about a list of what is right with you when you are healthy?

Are you someone who is always feeling hungry and craving food?
This is an indication that the digestion system is working too fast causing heat. This heat will impact nearby organs such as pancreas. Once the pancreas is not functioning normally, it is possible that diabetes may manifest in the future.
We have a tendency to think of the digestive system an automatic machine that takes care of whatever we ingest. If it is not working, give it a Tums. The digestive system is the most sensitive of all the organ systems in the body. If you know a few simple tricks about how to eat, and learn why a simple adjustment in your breakfast can make a huge difference in your life. What are the benefits? More mental clarity, no constant sinus, no phlegm to cough up in the morning, a sense of stability, no gas, bloating, acid reflux, IBS, to name a few.
Do you wake up between 1-4 o’clock in the morning?
If so, there is indication here that there is an imbalance in the movement of energy in the body. And the time you awaken is a key indicator that this overactive energy is in the channel that governs the flow of energy and blood in the whole body. Imbalances like this especially affect the organ systems that are intimately involved with the flow of blood in the body — the liver and the heart. If you tell a Western doctor that you are waking up during this time, he/she may not be able to tell you that there is anything wrong, especially if the examination and the lab tests are fine. If this kind of symptom lasts for many years, you may be surprised to find that those same lab tests may now tell you that something is wrong with your liver, or your cardiovascular system. How easy to identify the problem now and deal with it. You protect your heart and your liver.
