6 Health Warnings You Can See in Your Handwriting

By  | 

You probably know that a person can learn a few things about your personality traits looking at your handwriting, but you probably weren’t aware of the fact that your handwriting can also reveal the truth about your health and give you health warnings. The science behind deciphering a person’s handwriting is called graphology, and with its help it is really possible to tell much about someone’s health. Graphology is commonly used in criminal investigations, but it can also be used in medicine. Using this, you can learn more about your (and your loved ones’) health and react on time if you find out that someone you love, or yourself, have any disturbing health issue. Here are the health warnings you can read in your handwriting.

1. Pregnancy

Let’s start with something positive, instead of only talking about worrisome health conditions. Yes, there is actually a possibility of determining a positive pregnancy by looking at her handwriting.  Scientists claim that it is possible to discover if a woman is pregnant as early as around 72 hours after conception.

Scientists suggest looking at several samples of a woman’s handwriting in order to be able to make a good comparison. They claim that women tend to change the way of writing certain letters a few times throughout only one piece of writing, and that we should particularly pay attention to the loops on the letters.

2. Dyslexia

Children or adults with dyslexia have a handwriting that doesn’t follow a certain pattern. If a dyslexic child is forced by his or her parents to correct the handwriting, the situation may become even worse, as children can improve their handwriting properly only in a calm environment. Dyslexic children also often confuse different letters, such as ‘d’ and ‘b’, and sometimes use one instead of the other.

3. High blood pressure

You can analyze a person’s handwriting and see if they have high blood pressure or not, mainly because a person’s handwriting is drastically different when they have high blood pressure than when it is normal. As high blood pressure tends to make a person anxious, it really shows in their handwriting which becomes shaky. Graphologists have also noticed that persons with high blood pressure write letters very unevenly. So if you see that the handwriting of someone you love has become shaky and uneven, their blood pressure is probably high. You should measure it as soon as possible, and if necessary take that person to the doctor.


4. Autism and Asperger’s syndrome

Autistic people’s handwriting, and the handwriting of those suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome is marked by hesitancy and frequent breaks in writing words. This happens because people suffering from these conditions have an impairment of the motor system, which means that there isn’t a desirable and proper connection between the brain and the upper limb, which leads to problems with writing and using their hands in general. These conditions commonlyalso cause an impairment of the sensory nervous system, which sometimes makes people suffering from them unable to accurately position the writing equipment.

5. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

A person suffering from either of these two diseases usually has the handwriting of a child. If you received a piece of writing created by a person with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, you would probably think that a six-year-old wrote it. These diseases are very serious and the fact that they can be detected in one’s handwriting is very important. People suffering from Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s commonly have poor balance and tremors, they move slowly and they’re rigid. All these symptoms can be seen in a person’s handwriting – those with Parkinson’s tend to write very small letters and cramped words, while those with Alzheimer’s usually widely space their words.

6. Depression

A person’s mental state can also be seen in their handwriting, and you can use it to see whether someone is happy, or clinically depressed. Namely, when people are happy, they usually write in a flow, which can be seen very nicely in their handwriting. Moreover, optimistic person tend to put a crossbar of the letter ‘t’ in an upward position from left to right. On the other hand, if the crossbar (as well as all the letters) has a downward slant, a person can be considered to be depressed. Depressed people’s handwriting also commonly lacks alignment.

As you can see, your handwriting (or your loved one’s) can tell you a lot about physical and mental health. If you recognize some of the health warnings mentioned above, make sure that you make all the necessary steps. If you suspect that someone you know is clinically depressed, don’t wait too long before you offer help or find psychological guidance for them. When it comes to physical conditions, it is important to react on time and visit the doctor before the condition gets out of control. Obviously enough, handwriting can be extremely important in learning about a person’s health.
