Recovery A Face to Face Reality Check
Recovering from a serious illness or accident? Your reality becomes a face to face new existence; with saggy loose skin and all the baggage. A serious illness or accident is a shock to your body, which wreaks havoc, while pulling on the bodies reserves of nutrients, protein, and calcium trying 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.
But, an illness or accident is a major cause of stress and releases stress hormones. The hormones break down muscle, elastin and collagen. Skin becomes thin. listless and flabby; no matter what your age.
Collagen, a fibrous roping layer of our skin, forms on top of muscle and provides the integral support matrix for the elastin to connect onto muscle. A natural process for healthy thicker skin.
The collagen problem is only made worse by oxidative stress and free radicals because they fight to destroy our already weakened collagen matrix…
While none of us like to age, we can accept that it is something we all face… But what about aging early. My point? Recovery is a reality Check.
There is hope for the cure!
