Would you say a Paleo type diet would be anti-inflammatory and good for healing?
I already keep away from gluten and most sugar and dairy but I have been thinking about ditching all grains and dairy and only getting sugar from a few pieces of fruit.
Most of it is good, but bean, lentils, etc are not. And the other problem with it is that fructose is very important for a high temp and metabolism. And Paleo is all about avoiding sugar.
I destroyed my hormones doing paleo and avoiding sugar for a year and a half.
Now I eat a lot of sugar (clean sources). Mainly ripe fruit and OJ are the best kind. Especially fresh squeezed orange juice that hasn't been pasteurized because it has an excellent mineral balance.
I just want to say I am so happy to find someone else that knows diet is important in healing scars. I eat lots of saturated fat (plus I put it on my skin) and I see that it is helping me a lot. I am also happy to see that you list "no grains" because that is important too.
Do you drink milk btw? how about alcohol? I've been staying away from alcohol (really bad for your skin).
Yes, sooooo important. You can't help heal from stimulated injury well without provoiding your body with the minerals, vitamins and protein it needs. Coconut oil should be in your diet daily. You can also get saturated fat from milk and butter. But never use any other oils other than a bit of olive oil every now and then.
Yep, I drink milk. Milk and very well cooked dark greens are good for calcium and vitamin K. If you eat spinach or kale, eat it with salt and grass fed butter.
I drink alcohol occasionally; socially. But it has estrogen in it, so it's not good for you.
