Here are some key foods you can point your fork towards for faster healing, boosting your immune system & knitting the scar and/or the tummy-gap connective tissues together again:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I go into depth in my 1:1s, and courses, so it’s hard to pick just 1 nutrient here, but I’d have to say Vitamin C is truly important in healing.
It helps mop up debris, boosts immunity & helps produce collagen (which makes your connective tissue).
Have you got a favourite here? ⠀⠀
Your connective tissue is made of a protein substance called collagen, as well as elastin & water. As mentioned above, vitamin C is important to make collagen, AND you can also directly consume collagen to support healing, bones & skin regeneration. The best way to eat it is via making a bone broth, or you can buy it powdered (I like ‘Great Lakes’ brand for their pasture-raised source)
