How Food Affects Your Surgery Recovery
It is fairly common knowledge that diet and proper nutrition play a key role in healing after an operation. Replenishing essential nutrients and minerals and eating healthy foods that will help fight inflammation and infections are important parts of a comprehensive surgical recovery plan.
However, new research has shown that what a patient eats in the days and weeks leading up to a surgical procedure can also have a profound impact on how well they recover from surgery. Specifically, eating a high fat diet can have an adverse effect on tissue and its ability to heal after a medical procedure.
At Pearl Recovery Retreat, our expert staff can provide you with foods and vitamins essential for healing after surgery. To learn more about our recovery center in Beverly Hills, please call (310) 736-1009 today.
Your Body and Fat After Surgery
The relationship between eating a high fat diet and surgical outcomes is fairly straightforward. Fat tissue is one of the most predominant tissues in the human body, and is highly susceptible to trauma during any surgical procedure.
When fat tissue experiences trauma during surgery it can create a chemical imbalance in the tissue and affect the surrounding organs.
Eat Less Fat Before Surgery For Better Results
Experts believe that lowering fat intake in the weeks leading up to surgery can help to keep the chemical balance between fat tissue and organs at more stable and normal levels during an operation. Lessening the risk of trauma can therefore lessen the risk of inflammation and infection, both major concerns for patients recovering from surgery.
At Pearl Recovery Retreat, patients have the option to meet many of their post-surgical nutrition needs with a range of fresh and natural juice cleanses. In order to make sure that guests can meet their nutritional needs while cutting back on high fat foods that can negatively impact their after surgery recovery, Pearl also offers a line of pre-surgery juice cleanses.
Whatever the procedure might be, whether a knee replacement or cosmetic procedure, the most important consideration for any successful recovery is to limit stressors that can impact how well the body responds to surgery and its ability to heal afterward. Making sensible choices, from nutrition to a positive state of mind, and seeking help and support if necessary will have a great impact on the path to recovery.
