  • Standing Naked before the Mirror could reveal any Flaws in your Health Status

Scientists have found that standing absolutely naked before the mirror could reveal any flaws that happen to exist in your health status.

Many think that by examining your body naked in front of a mirror, you prove the point beyond a shadow of doubt that you are a first-rate narcissist.

Supposedly, only vain people with a lot of hubris would do such a thing. However, the latest evidence coming from the scientists’ labs shows that it could in fact be a very healthy habit that pays off in dividends down the road. 

Suppose you were to detect a small lump in the groin region when you stand in front of the mirror in your birthday suit. This may be a sign of a hernia. It is commonly termed an inguinal hernia.

Part of the bowels has found a way through the groin wall. This lump becomes less visible when you lie down on your bed. Yet under normal circumstances, the belly and gravity will make it stand out. Such hernias are common in men who lift heavy objects. 

Next comes dark coloration underneath the armpits. Called acanthosis nigricans, these shadowy patches are an early sign of type 2 diabetes, according to DailyMail. These patches may be soft in their texture and itch like hell too.

High insulin levels in the body cause this change in coloration in the cells of the armpits. Sometimes one shoulder is higher than the other one. This is a sign of scoliosis. This is a deformation of the spine.

The condition creates an S-shape in the spine and also affects the ribcage in some circumstances. The alignment of the shoulders is thrown off its normally graceful balance. 

A vein bulging beneath the chest may be a sign of Mondor’s Disease. In this rare ailment, there may be a tumor in the breast. This disease may be healed via anti-inflammatory drugs.

Dark skin surrounding the ankles is a sign of a leg ulcer. The blood seeps from the veins in the linked tissues of the leg and the pressure increases in this region.

Veins standing out in your neck may be a sign of heart disease. The heart is probably not providing enough blood to each organ in a proper manner. Such things as mysterious bruises may be a sign of liver disease.  

Swollen knees are probably due to gout which is a very painful condition where the uric acid crystals cause swelling and inflammation in the joints. Such a condition normally affects the big toe.

These and several other signs, that can only be gauged by standing naked in front of the mirror, show men and women what they need to know regarding their health profile.
