Recovering from a serious illness or accident? A serious illness or shock to your body pulls on reserves of nutrients, protein, and calcium to keep you alive. In my case, I lost 24 pounds in 3 days, from a ruptured appendix. The appendectomy saved my life! I was released the fourth day and was face to face with a whole new reality. Loose flabby skin everywhere on my body! The protein from my muscles, calcium from my bones, and the store house of nutrients that I had in reserve pulled me out of danger.
Recovery is a face to face reality. An illness or accident is a major cause of stress, which releases stress hormones. Hormones break down muscle, elastin and collagen so our skin thins and sags; no matter what your age.
Collagen, a fibrous roping, forms on top of muscle and provides the integral
support matrix for the, elastin, or connective tissue to adhere onto muscle. A natural process for healthy skin.
The collagen rebuilds itself on a regular basis. But, in hindered and made worse by oxidative stress and free radicals because they fight to destroy the weakened collagen matrix… This is part of the aging process we can slow down with proper nutrition for the skin and the body. My theory is, whole plants for whole people; the holistic approach.
While none of us like to age, we can accept that it is something we all face… But, aging before your time, due to a serious illness or accident? Recovery is a reality Check. There is always hope and with God's perfect design, a cure!
