PERFECT HANDS CLINIC believes that there is more to healthcare than the usual health assistance. When you are caring for a patient, you consider many different aspects of care.
Quality health care services in Africa includes every aspect of a person’s well-being. Proper nutrition may sound simple but getting the right nutrition is very essential to achieve optimal wellness, especially for the recovery of our loved ones.
Eating nutritious meals ensures that the patient is consuming the recommended nutrients essential for body repair. Here are some vitamins for better and faster recovery:
- Proteins improve wound healing and boost the immune system. For a depressed appetite, try eating a small amount of protein. Common foods rich in protein include low-fat cheese, eggs, yogurt, and plain baked chicken.
- Vitamin C and Zinc are other nutrients that aid in the healing process. Get Vitamin C fresh from citrus fruits, broccoli, bell peppers, or baked potato. Fish, meat, and poultry foods are good sources of Zinc.
- Calcium and Vitamin D are associated with healthy bones. Especially for cases with fractures, an abundant amount of these nutrients may strengthen the bones. Milk, yogurt, and fortified soy milk are primary sources of both nutrients.
- Fiber-rich foods aid in easing constipation caused by the pain medications of a surgery or injury. Whole grains, vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, and seeds contain fiber.
