In our eyes we can find the symptoms of many diseases. According to doctors we should change our habits and always consult them before making any drastic changes in our lives.

The eyes are the mirror of the soul. By looking at the eyes we can detect if someone is sad, happy or angry. However, eyes can detect many other things if we look at them a little better.

Eyes can uncover symptoms of many diseases for which you should change your habits. For example, most people have dark circles under the eyes and they all think that it is just a sign of sleep deprivation. However, this is not always the case.

Dark circles under the eyes

We call them dark circles and they are definitely one of the signs of sleep deprivation. On average, a man’s daily need is seven to eight hours of sleep during the night in order to function. On the other hand, nutritionists warn that lack of sleep can cause numerous health problems. Nutritionist Cassandra Barnes says that lack of sleep can cause thyroid problems and anemia. Also, the cause of dark circles can be intolerance to a particular food, such as gluten and cow’s milk.

If you had enough sleep and you still have dark circles UNDER YOUR EYES, check your health.

Yellow sclera

If your sclera has become yellow go see a doctor immediately, because it’s a sign that something is wrong with your liver. Yellow sclera is a signs of hepatitis and jaundice. If we want to prevent liver disease we should reduce alcohol intake as well as vegetable oils and sugar, and we should eat more vegetables, eggs and onions. It also helps to drink hot water with lemon in the morning on an empty stomach in order to purify the body.

Bloodshot eyes

Bloodshot eyes are also a sign we should see a doctor. These may be symptoms of conjunctivitis, blepharitis, uveitis and glaucoma, as well as various allergies. However, the eyes can often be bloody after working on the computer. People who spend their time working on the computer should rest their eyes more. Dr. Eloise Bauskis says that we should take a break and ‘move’ eyes off the screen for 5 to 10 minutes every hour.

Dry eyes

Many people are familiar with this feeling, it’s like having sand in your eyes. If you are confronted with this quite often, it is a sign that you have a problem with dry eyes. However, there is a natural cure for it. To begin with, consume more vitamin A, which can be found in animal liver. Eat animal liver once or twice a week and this way you will bring enough vitamin A to your body. The problem of dry eyes can occur if you are on a diet and not taking enough fat in your body. This can be solved by avocado, coconut and olive oil.

Swollen eyes

As well as dark circles, puffy eyes are also a sign of sleep deprivation. This problem can be solved by putting tea bags or cucumber slices on the eyelids, but swollen eyes can be a sign of a lot of major health problems. They can be related to unbalanced intake of potassium and sodium in the body, or too much salt.
