Aesthetics and Good Health/How (and Why) Good Health Benefits/Affects Your Appearance
Q: Can your health (or severe illness) really change/affect your appearance…And if so, is it possible to repair or counter the change to return to normal?
A: In good health, one’s appearance should only improve/become more naturally aesthetically enhanced with age and maturity. Circumstances that may affect your appearance are as follows: 1.) Obesity and/or extreme weight gain (not including or related to pregnancy); 2.) Bulimia OR Anorexia (typically presents as visible skeletal malformity/extreme malnutrition); 3.) Addiction (including, but not limited to deliberate abuse of illegal drugs, narcotics and/or alcohol); 4.) Certain types of terminal illness (i.e., (inoperable) cancer, aids/hiv, lupus, etc…) that have a visibly debilitating effect on the body over the course of the disease through terminal phase.. In terms of countering any potential negative impact such illnesses may have, proper nutrition, diet and exercise under the care of your medical specialist may and can minimize, negate or even offset any potential negative affect of the disease, which is particularly relevant for those who successfully enter remission/no-longer present symptoms and platelets return to normal and/or within an acceptable range of normalcy for general standards of physiology (internal medicines).
