What should I do to promote wound healing?

Q: what is the best way of healing wounds?

A: Adequate nutrition and hydration are essential for the wound healing process.  Many vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables are involved in this process.  For example, vitamin K (found in green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach) is involved in the cascade of events to stop bleeding at the wound site.  See your physician immediately if you are concerned with the state of a wound.
