What helps the ridges that are on my nails?
By Patricia from Flint, MI
Keep them polished with "Hard as nails polish" (I use clear) & take a one a day vitamin twice a week (I can't take them every day, gives me a headache), wear rubber gloves when washing dishes, good luck.
Get a medical check up, ridges can be a sign of poor vitamin and mineral absorption and can be a very subtle sign of poor health. diseased organs can cause ridges, weak nails, white dots, red nail bed rims, dark "moons", and moons vanishing completely. there's several good sites online that show pictures of fingernails with different issues and explains what those fingernails are trying to tell us.
For example, dark moons can denote poisoning or toxins. red nail bed rims can denote kidney disease. google fingernails and various accompanying terms to read more about these health issues.
