Hey guys, I've got a couple bruises (a crazy encounter with a rope swing while working at Norfolk Botanical Gardens) and they dont seem to be healing very well, it was more than a week ago and they still look the same. What am I missing from my diet? OR what can I supplement to help with healing? Whatever I am missing that is keeping the bruises from healing might also be keeping my back from healing as well... Any help would be great. Thanks!

Sorry Ash,

I have no idea :shock: .

But I think you should get it checked out IMMEDIATELY by a doctor.

A week doesn't seem like too long for me, depending how bad the bruise was to begin with. I have bruises all the time from mountain biking, and I'd say that it's the very rare one that is healed in a week or so. Right now, I have a bruise that I got on my calf 6 days ago and it is highly colorful. Kinda green in the middle, then light purple, then v. dark purple on the outer bit. I imagine even in another week it will be visible still.

So I dunno... I've never asked how quickly other people's bruises go away!

Vitamin K. (not Potassium that's a mineral - you need the vitamin). A daily supplement should clear it up and keep you from bruising easily in the future.

Iron

I start bruising easily if I don't keep up my levels of iron, but as soon as I start supplementing it again my bruises go away

You may be lacking zinc in your diet, or as suggested iron. :?

It could be that you need more iron or zinc in your diet. I know I get plenty of those particular vitamins in my natural diet without supplementation. K on the other hand.. is just not a part of my natural diet aside from spinach (I actually try to have spinach a few times a week but that is still not everyday) so I need a supplement.
