Are you really healthy and how healthy are you? From the answers to these questions, you can know through these six tests while sitting at home. These short tests of just one minute can warn you against some possible diseases. So that experts can consult doctor in time-
1) Cross leg squat, for longevity
Brazilian physician Claudio Gil Araujo designed this test. Cross your feet with your feet and sit on the floor. Then get back up. If you stand without your hands on the ground, without moving, then you have strength in your muscles, balance, flexibility and agility in your body. You are healthy on the fat and will live a long life.
2) Stay test – for heart health
According to the European Scientific Society of Cardiology, if you climb a 4-story staircase in a minute, then the heart is healthy. If it takes one and a half minutes or more, then medical advice is needed.
3) Windage test – for eyes
Sitting far away in the room is to close the right eye and look at the entire frame of the door or window for 30 seconds. After this, you have to close the left eye and look at the window and door frame for 30 seconds. If there is a difference in the vision of the two eyes, blurry, obscure then it is time for medical examination of the eyes.
5) Paper test – to check for thyroid
Spread your one hand towards the front. Turn the palm downwards. Place a piece of paper over it. If the paper moves or appears to be shivering, it can be a symptom of a thyroid problem. Trembling of the hands is not usually visible, but when the paper is placed on it, the vibration of the hand can be easily noticed. Also keep in mind that slight tremor is common, it may also be due to asthma medication, anxiety or low blood sugar.
4) Cheer test – for sciatica
If there is a long time pain in the back and pain is not going away from the painkiller, then do this test. Sitting upright in a chair, raise one leg 90 degrees. If doing so causes pain in the knees, hip or leg, it can be a problem of cytic nerve.
6) Clock test – for dementia
Give these 4 instructions to the person whose test is to be given by giving a paper-
1) Make a clock on it.
2) Write all the numbers in it.
3) Make both forks of the watch.
4) Make two more forks, marking the time of 11:10.
