Scarring

Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g., after accident, disease, or surgery) results in some degree of scarring.

When the body is called to heal – when the skin is broken – for example, by a cut, bite, scratch, burn, acne or piercing – the body produces more of a protein called collagen. Collagen gathers around damaged skin and builds up to help the wound seal over. The resulting scar usually fades over time, becoming smoother and less noticeable.

It sometimes overdoes this. It becomes keloid. If scars don’t stop growing, invading healthy skin and becoming bigger than the original wound. These are known as keloid scars, which affect around 10-15% of all wounds.

Keloid scars are more common on the upper chest, shoulders, head (especially the earlobes) and neck, but they can happen anywhere. They’re normally:

  • shiny
  • hairless
  • raised above surrounding skin
  • hard and rubbery
  • red or purple at first, before becoming brown or pale

They can last for years, and sometimes don’t form until months or years after the initial injury.

They’re usually painless, but some can cause:

  • pain
  • tenderness
  • itchiness
  • a burning feeling
  • limited movement if located on a joint

Why? A lack of ingredients to do the job well – and this can be reduced – often easily – with a combination of the different therapies I have been developing over the past 4 decades – in conjunction with the Mercier work.

I have witnessed amazing shifts in what is happening – when we change the circulation and the nutrient levels.
