How Nutrition Can Help You Heal
Our physicians often get asked if diet plays an important role in helping them with the outcomes of their treatment. The short answer is: yes. Nutrition has been found to be an essential role in helping patients heal. Patients are advised to maintain a high protein diet with minimal sugar and carbohydrates. Those ingredients have been found to cause ‘bad inflammation’, and inhibit healing after regenerative procedures.
Supplements such as fish oil (see our last post!) and the Regenexx Supplement have been proven to help the promotion of more stem cells and cartilage growth. Patients have the ability to take control of their own healing, and help your platelets and stem cells as much as possible! As with all supplements, please consult with your primary care physician before beginning any vitamin/supplement regimen.
