WHITE FINGERNAILS – A HEALTH WARNING NOT TO IGNORE
I met with an old friend last week, and she asked me to look at her hands. Her fingernails instantly took me. I mentioned some things to her, and immediately she began to nod her head in agreement. Later she told me the truth! If you observe this sign, you must not ignore it. What is was that I saw in her fingernails, was the colour. They were not the pale pink or flesh colour that you would expect to have in the bed of the nail. She had white fingernails. Now, it’s not always a health issue, but in many cases, it is.
White fingernails meaning.
When the whole nail is cloudy white in colour, it can depict a liver disorder such as hepatitis, kidney disorder or anaemia. Cloudy white nails, a white line or white spots on the nail may be an indication of a serious disorder, you should consult with your physician or doctor. See image here.
A white looking nail bed can suggest iron deficiency, low vitality or even liver dysfunction. In some instances, a pale, white or greyish tinge under the nails can indicate selfish leanings or lack of warmth (character).
Depending on the quality of the nail, if it appears to be lifting off the quick, clouded, brittle and dry, it could indicate a fungal disease. Also, check first if the weather is not affecting the colour of the nails.
HERE’S THE QUICK STORY ABOUT HER HEALTH:
In the case of my friend, she had, in fact, a severe liver dysfunction from the overuse of medication to treat her mental problems, depression and apparent schizophrenia which was probably caused by all the other drugs, (but that is not for me to judge).
The bad news was that her bones had also been affected by the long-term issue, and now she has to find ways to regenerate the bone mass.
The good news is that her doctor finally took her off the pills and began treatment for the liver. The treatment included a change in diet, which in turn helped her to lose unwanted fat off her waistline.
YELLOW OR BROWN COLOUR ON THE NAILS
Yellow colour in the nail beds or a brownish discolouration, splotches or stains in the skin directly under the nail, can indicate jaundice, liver or gallbladder conditions.
These marks can also occur when there is a high level of bilirubin in the blood due to the body producing too much or not get rid of it fast enough.
When the nail itself is white and clouded on the top section and yellow at its base, it can signify kidney disease.
Other conditions can also cause yellowing, such as fungal infection or regular contact with heavy-duty chemicals on the nails.
Red fingernails mainly show a predisposition to poor circulation. Very red nails can be due to high blood pressure, bad temper or cardiovascular disease.
WHITE SPOTS OR LINES
White flecks or spots can show a vulnerable nervous system or weak constitution. The white spot is a sign of delicate nerves and can be caused by stress. They show that the body lacks a mineral, iron, calcium, zinc or magnesium. White lines across the nail can indicate acute fever or coronary disease.
A WORD OF WARNING
To back up any possible health issues acquired from palmistry, you should always consult a qualified medical practitioner. Please don’t make the mistake of diagnosing from the nails, palms or lines alone. Many of these indicators are in frequent change according to the individuals’ state of affairs.
