    A diet to fix slow wound healing?

    Hello everyone

    I've noticed that my body takes too much time to make skin/flesh damages fully disappear. For example, there is one bloody scrape on my leg that took more than one month to look healed!

    So, what are the natural ways to help the organism to recover faster in such cases?

    Thanks for the help !

    an interesting topic!

    i imagine that the best thing you can do for your body to help it repair is to make sure that you're eating a well balanced diet with all the correct vitamins and minerals we need, as well as good quality protien, which helps the body to repair damage tissue.

    I would recommend that you pay particular attention to the protein in your diet if there are no kidney problems, etc. The recommendation for the average person is .8 grams protein/kg. of body weight. For accelerated healing, you may want to consider 1.2-1.4 grams of protein/kg. of body weight. If you increase your protein, you will want to be sure to increase your fluid intake so the kidneys are not overworked however.

    protein (meat, eggs fish, beans, milk); vitamin C for collagen formation (fruit and veg); zinc for wound healing (lean red meat, dark meat of white meat, organ meats, nuts and seeds); vitamin E to help minimise scar tissue formation (nuts and seeds, avacados, cold pressed vegetable oils).

    this problem could be a sign of zinc deficiency. do you get ill often, reduced libido, white spots on finger nails, mild depression????
