Not everyone has an apple a day, so how do you know if you’re healthy enough to keep the doctor away? We asked medical professionals of all stripes—dermatologists, GPs, dentists, surgeons, psychologists, nutritionists—their top indicators of good health. Here are their 50 gold-star seals of sound, strong health.

1.If you’re a woman, your menstrual cycle is regular

“Regular menstrual cycles (intervals of 27 to 35 days) are a sign of reproductive health. Regular cycles suggest normal ovulation, and that reflects balanced hormone levels from the brain down to the ovaries. Women who are unhealthy because they’re overweight or underweight tend to have more erratic or even absent periods; the brain shuts down ovarian function and ovulation doesn’t happen or happens unpredictably.” —Janet Choi, MD, reproductive endocrinologist, CCRM-New York. These are the period problems you shouldn’t ignore.

2.You have fresh breath

“The smell of your breath is a large clue into your overall health, since much of your immune function takes place in the gut. Fresh breath is a good indication that your gut health is balanced. For example, overly fruity smelling breath can be an indication of diabetes, foul smelling breath can be associated with reflux, a fishy smell could mean kidney failure, a sour mouth can be a sign of sleep apnea.” —David Borenstein, MD, founder of Manhattan Integrative Medicine in New York

3.You say what’s on your mind

“Someone who is willing to talk about issues that are bothering them, instead of bottling them up. This shows trust, assertiveness, and the knowledge that it is not healthy to carry that kind of stress and animosity around. That addressing things right away is the best thing for everyone involved.” —Nikki Martinez, PsyD

4.You poop at least once a day

“What you put into your body is important, but so is what comes out! Not having a daily bowel movement could be a sign of something that is off in your digestive process. Examples could be a deficiency in magnesium, not properly digesting or absorbing nutrients, or even emotional stress.” —Tara Coleman, clinical nutritionist

5.Your urine is clear

“The simplest marker for your kidney’s health is your urine. The kidneys keep the electrolytes in the body in balance by filtering out excess and waste. Clear urine is a good sign that you are well hydrated. Foamy urine or blood in the urine indicates damage to the kidneys and should prompt a visit to your doctor.” —Dara Huang, MD, kidney specialist, founder of New York Culinary Medicine.
