Medical Cause of Bags Under Eyes
The condition and appearance of a person's face says a lot about what's going in inside their bodies. And if you have heavy bags under your eyes, your body might be trying to tell you something.
The delicate area directly under our eyes correlates with our kidneys (the area directly under that correlates with the large intestine or colon). In some cases, bags under the eyes are a sign of kidney problems. Other signs include a change in the frequency of urination and/or a change in the appearance of urine; swelling in the legs, ankles, feet, face and/or hands; fatigue; itching or skin rashes; metallic taste in mouth; dizziness and trouble concentrating; feeling as though you're constantly cold; and/or leg or flank pain.
The early stages of kidney disease often go undiagnosed. If you are concerned about kidney disease or have any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor.
A slow thyroid affects 2 in 100 women or 2% of the female population. If you are experiencing general fatigue, difficulty concentrating, weight gain, a dislike of cold weather, muscle weakness or muscle cramps, dry skin and thin hair, heavy periods, a slow resting pulse and bloated tissue, your slow thyroid may be causing those bags under your eyes too. If you think you have Hypothyroidism, consult your doctor.
An excess of sodium in your diet will cause you to retain water, making your causing puffy bags under the eyes, as well as puffiness in the legs, feet, ankles and abdomen. Stay away from fast food and processed foods and make sure you drink plenty of water to flush the excess sodium out of your system.
If you've ruled out the above conditions and still believe the bags under your eyes are a sign of your body crying for help, try detoxing.
The large and small intestines are two of the body's most important mechanisms because digestion is one of the body's most important functions. When the intestines get clogged with bile and mucous, they can't function properly. Detox, the process of eliminating the body - particularly the large and small intestines - of toxins, can help you look and feel better (and lighter) than you have in years.
