The speed of healing of damaged tissues depends on many factors – genetics, the patient’s age, the general condition of the body (wounds in people with reduced immunity do not heal for a long time) and the characteristics of blood coagulation.
Slow healing of the skin is a hallmark of diseases involving blood supply disorders (diabetes mellitus, arteries and veins).
The features of the wounds themselves also influence the process of repairing damaged tissues. Wounds with sharp edges are the quickest cicatrization, and the most “long-lasting” injuries are purulent (prickly) and stab wounds. Much depends on the place of damage. Wounds located close to the heart (the center of the blood supply), heal faster than peripheral (limbs). But the pain and intensity of bleeding with injuries do not speak about anything. Most of all bleed superficial wounds, which subsequently heal without a trace, and those that are located in places where there are many nerve endings hurt.
To make the wound heal faster, eat meat, fish, nuts, liver, eggs, porridge, and fresh vegetables and fruits. And remember: in the rehabilitation period, it is important to remain calm and have a positive attitude. Scientists from Ohio State University at one time found that calm and optimistic people have wounds that heal faster.
