Your hands are, by extension, a part of you that is very revealing, from the condition of your skin and nails to the actual lines in your palm. If you’re suffering from problems in your personal life or even physical health issues, then the chances of discovering the source of it by checking out your hands is pretty good.
Here are 5 huge ways your hands will tell you that your health isn’t where it needs to be:

1. Your lifeline has breaks in it or looks weak.
Your lifeline is the single most important line on your hand when it comes to checking your overall vitality and stamina. It is the curved line that runs through the middle of your palm parallel to your thumb.
Despite what its name suggests, it doesn’t tell you how long you’ll live or when you’re going to die — although it can reveal some serious impediments in your physical and emotional health.
The line quality of your lifeline can be measured by the clarity, meaning how well you can actually see your line. When healthy, it’s the deepest, strongest, most obvious line in your hand.
This is what a healthy lifeline looks like:
There are no breaks and it’s incredibly easy to see. This is a strong, healthy lifeline.
However, you can also see what a “break” in the line looks like, which suggests a decrease in vitality at the point of the break:
Though the lifeline can be “dated” to approximate ages, this isn’t exact because lines can change over time, so it’s not definite, and with work, can heal.
This is an example of a very weak lifeline:
Notice that the heart line above it is actually showing up more than the lifeline? This means that this person’s emotions are greatly affecting their vitality — in a negative way.
2. Your fingernails are weak and/or easily broken
The quality of your fingernails and their overall health is actually an incredibly telling part of your current vitality and wellness. Problems in your physical health frequently show up in the fingernails before they show up anywhere else.
Simply put, if your nails are brittle, cracking, peeling, or otherwise weak, then you need to get yourself checked out by a doctor.
Other important factors in your nails are color, and whether or not you have “moons” on the base of your fingernails.
Your nails should be a healthy pink, which is a good indicator that all is well.
Here are other colors that may show up in your nails and indicate health issues:
- Red: Suggests you have high blood pressure.
- White: Suggests you have low blood pressure, circulation problems, low vitality, or possible nutritional deficiencies.
- Blue: If your nails are blue at the base, you may have cardiovascular weakness or again, circulation problems (you aren’t getting enough of it).
- Yellow: This could mean liver or gall bladder weakness. Yellow is frequently associated with jaundice in the body, which suggests endocrine problems.
- Brown: You may have nervous system weakness or nutritional deficiencies that you need to address.
3. There are a lot of horizontal lines in your hands
These are known as “stress lines,” and for very good reason.
Stress lines indicate a lot of emotional turmoil and suggest that the person who has them is greatly affected by their poor emotional state.
4. The skin of your hands has unusual coloration to it
Just like your nails, your hands are going to reveal a lot of your heath pretty easily.
If the skin in your hands is off-colored (meaning too blue or too red), then you may want to look into talking with your doctor.
If your hands are very red, check your blood pressure because it could be high. Likewise, if your hands have a blue tint to them, then you may have some emotional issues blocking you, like depression:
If that is the case, please seek out a trusted professional to get yourself on a healthy path again.
5. There are “chains” in your palm lines
This is an indication that there are emotional issues causing a lot of problems in your life.
Like stress lines, it could suggest that your happiness and physicality is being affected by negative influences in your life.
You may even be holding onto things and don’t know how to let go, but all they’re doing is causing you pain.
All of these issues are important and should not be ignored. However, if you’re worried about what you see in your hands, then don’t stress.
