The Size of The Moons on Your Nails Reveal This About Your Health
Turns out the size of the moons on your nails reveal the current state of your health!
In case you’re wondering what moons are, they are the rounded shadow located at the base of your fingernails, closest to your fingers.
According to palmistry, overly large moons can mean an overactive thyroid and high blood pressure. Small or no moons are thought to predict, the opposite; an under-active thyroid and low blood pressure.
Scientists have found that a lack of a fingernail moon may indicated you are low in Vitamin B-12 or in iodine which feeds the thyroid. You would not want to be in this boat, as Vitamin B-12 deficiency has been linked with lack of energy, depression, and loss of coordination and memory, among other things. Iodine deficiency has been linked with breast cancer.
An article on Fingernail Analysis in Natural Health Techniques tells us what your moons ideally should be sized like. “There should be 8 of these. The lunulae on the little fingers should be missing according to Eastern Medicine Philosophy. The one on the thumb nail should be 25% or less than the total length of the nail from base to flesh line at the top”.
Small or No Moons: There is not much research on this topic but one study has shown that missing moons are associated with various systemic disorders including issues with your thyroid or pituitary gland, iron deficiency, chronic renal failure, depression and possible B-12 deficiency. Have your iodine and Vitamin B-12 levels checked. Have your blood pressure and thyroid function checked.
Large Moons: Have your thyroid and blood pressure checked. It’s difficult to tell if your moons are overly large, so there is no need to panic if your blood pressure and thyroid have been normal!
