Natural Treatment of Scars.
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury.
The human body isn't vain, it has a keen interest in survival. The main aim is to close the wound as quickly as possible and prevent bacterial infection - so instead of the usual organised lattice of collagen in normal skin, the body haphazardly lays down collagen to seal the wound as quickly as possible.
There are various elements that will affect how a scar heals: size and depth of the original wound, age and nutritional status of the patient, level of inflammation and how quickly the wound heals.
Obviously, the bigger the wound the bigger the scar. The type of injury will also affect the resulting scar. A surgical incision with neat borders will heal better and have a better scar outcome than skin that has been torn open and has uneven edges.
Skin cells turn over quite quickly (10 - 30 days), but they do need the right nutrients to do so.
Good nutrition ensures the body has everything it needs to heal naturally and reduce scar formation. Avoiding substances that rob your body of nutrients: smoking, alcohol, caffeine, processed foods, sugar and stress, is also a necessary consideration in healing scars naturally.
Age affects cell turn over rate and healing capability, the older we are the slower we heal and the greater potential for scar formation, so a diet of nutritious whole foods and plenty of water is essential. The most important nutrients for wound healing are protein (amino acids: arginine, glutamine and glucosamine), zinc, vitamins A, C and E. Think a rainbow of vegetables, whole grains, berries, nuts, seeds and good quality organic protein.
Applying a scar oil topically to reduce inflammation, prevent infection and speed up cell regeneration will help a wound heal with the least scarring.
