How These Strange Health Indicators Could Help Save You

August 26, 2015 2 min read

Your body is really good at telling you when something's up. And you can see or feel those subtle or sometimes severe realities in a variety of ways. And if you aren't sure, you can bet there's a new article popping up on the Internet informing us what that weird mole or blotchy patch of skin indicates. health indicators But the normalcies we look for are only half the battle. There's a whole world of weird bodily changes going on that we should be looking out for. So if you care about your health, it's time to tune in. 1. Fingernails health indicators We spend a lot of time trying to get our fingernails to look the way we want. If we're not getting a manicure, we're picking off our nail polish, biting our nails (stop that right now), filing them, picking off pieces of skin surrounding them, and just generally checking to make sure they don't look like we just escaped a dirt hole. But we should start using that fixation for indicating poor health signs as well. Has a shade of red developed on your fingernails? This could be a sign of lupus. Beau's lines, the indentations which run horizontally across the nails, are another sign to be careful of, as they are associated with diabetes, measles, mumps and pneumonia. 2. Eyes health indicators Do you typically walk around with blood-shot eyes? This could be a sign of subconjunctival hemorrhage, which means there was a blow of tiny blood vessels in the eye. This could be related to high blood pressure or even platelet disorder. 3. Bra Size health indicators According to a study that was published in the journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, women with large or mismatched breasts risk suffering from a lack of self-esteem and even eating disorders, apparently because it interferes with the inability to exercise regularly and comfortably. In addition, those with a D cup or bigger are 1.5 times more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Why you ask? The fat tissue often resists insulin in this area. What other weird health indicators do you think people should start paying attention to? Source: Bustle Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
