Healing and sugar free

We are still waiting for appointments for my daughter, in the meantime it’s life as normal and trying to not worry.

Today’s sugar free year observation is on healing, as in the physical kind. I’ve never had issues with skin healing in fact I’d say I’d always been a pretty good healer. Now my bodies ability to repair tissue is excellent, my hysterectomy incisions knitted over in a matter of weeks, I had no bruising in fact I bruise very little these days. Then there’s the tattoo I had done a week ago, it’s my 6th and 4th big one so I’m fairly use to the tattoo healing game. This one has healed over in 8 days, all scabs fallen off all flakiness gone. There’s still a little itching and se raised areas but to look at you wouldn’t think it was quite so new.

What has caused this improvement in healing I can’t say, it could be the lack of sugar though it warrants saying I never had a typical western diet of junk food so never had a high sugar intake. Plus although my “added” sugar intake is zero my actual sugar intake (from fruit and other whole food sources) is the same as it ever was.

Perhaps that’s the reason, when I cut out all the extras I replaced them with fruit, fresh peas and other fruit and vegetables. My fruit and vegetables intake is higher than it’s ever been at around 8 to 10 portions a day. Whatever the cause is it’s certainly a happy side effect.
