The Warning Signs & The Ignoramus Mind!


 
“Our body is the evidence to not only our existence but also to the various factors relating to our health that comes with the form”
- these words of his wife, Esha, kept playing in his head as he lay in the hospital bed, waiting to get discharged.

A heart attack at the age of 42 was like a deafening blast that shook Amit from within. He had expected the heart to scream for help at later stage of his life.
How he wished he had acted before and not taken the toothache lightly for a week, believing it to be cavities. "I will have to go through root-canal treatment anyway; I will visit Dr. Sathe on Saturday. Let me finish this project first." He popped a pain killer and winked at his wife.


"Fool! Fool!", he kicked himself mentally for ignoring the warning signs.

His wife, a health conscious, had always pointed out to various health factors one goes through in day to day life, boring Amit to death. The perfect way to eschew the lectures was to nod his head and ignore her words. Sigh! If only he listened to his darling wife.

The previous year, Esha had dragged him to a health conference, conducted by a local community club, where a few health experts had gathered to address people on warnings and signs of illness our bodies show. All he gathered from the seminar was how delicious the snacks were. Although, he had faint memories of a few sentences he had picked up from a speech by a well known dentist, whenever his wife elbowed him to listen. The speech was bravely different from the usual medical lingo, but it still was a lecture he wasn't interested in.


"Our body envelopes our soul, thus, giving us a physical identity on earth..." - Was how the aging doctor had begun his speech.

"Can you remember the speech by that old dentist?" he asked his wife.

After being held in the hospital for several days undergoing various tests, he was told that the toothache was not due to cavities but was a symptom of a weak heart. Now he wanted to know & to listen to every word…every sentence of that speech.

"Yes, I do. In fact …"

Esha, out of her habit had managed to get a good fraction of the speech in print. “God bless the woman.”, thought Amit.



Nest day she came with her laptop and handed it over to him and there it was; the speech- all in print…albeit not all of it.

"I will go downstairs; kids will be here in two hours". She planted a kiss on his forehead and left the room shutting the door behind her.


He was now alone with the words, he begun reading it, he knew his life wouldn't be the same from now…

"And this structure comes with various detailed mechanism that helps us live healthily. Every curve, every outline, every shape of our structure speak of our being.
But with ill-habits the design is disrupted, thus, resulting in various health issues which we suffer as we age.

Any disturbances in our body and we are informed about it. However, Mother Nature has her own ways of telegraphing the message. She has designed and programmed our bodies in such a way, that it signals us about every change it goes through. The healthier we are the brighter our appearance is and vice versa.

As a clear & glowing skin is a sign of a healthy liver, a chronic toothache might be the result of a heart ailment. Your heart is asking for help and has chosen your tooth to deliver the message. In this case, the body is signaling and all you need to do is visit a dentist and follow his advice. Ignoring such symptoms is not something you can afford to do, especially in today’s fast-paced stressful lives."

He re-read the page several times, like he wanted to carve every single letter from the document in his mind and his soul. He emailed the document to every soul he knew. He read about more warnings and tried to gather as much as information as possible.

"How are you feeling honey"

Amit, looked at his wife, more than four hours had passed since she left the room.
"Ignored." 

*          *          *

Our body is the evidence to not only our existence but also to the various factors relating to our health that comes with the form. It, ergo, becomes our priority to take seriously any warning, cued to us, never ignore the signs.

  11. tons of information, that... Namrota...thank u so much for sharing!

    I lost my brother to heart attack four yrs back, and he was just 38, no bad habits, no smoking, no alcohol, very hard worker and gem of a person.....im sure there must have been warning signs, but nobody saw it coming.....maybe a heath check up would have giving some warning bells.

    1. I am so sorry to hear about your brother. Well we can't change what has already happened... but for future we can definitely take cues. Always we should get a frequent health check-up done even if we feel we are healthy.

  15. Yes I too read about this connection once......but then it is hard to single out a really fatal toothache, one that serves as a messenger of the heart, from the scores of toothaches which each of us has to battle out in the course of life :/

    It is, btw, interesting how you weaved the tale and incorporated the moral. I wish you win the trophy and then you can share the prize with me :P
