Injury Healing 

I design a customized, easily executable nutrition strategy periodized around your specific injury and your individual needs. This plan assures that you are consuming the right amounts of necessary nutrients in order to:

 

  • Maximize recovery of injury (bone, concussion, tendon, ligament, muscle)

  • Reduce excessive inflammation

  • Reduce risk of deficiencies (or treat deficiencies) that can interfere with healing

  • Reduce muscle mass loss and/or body fat gain during immobilization

  • Reduce indirect concussion symptoms, which may be caused by a hypersensitivity to imbalances of food/liquid combination, timing and amounts

 

"Two studies have demonstrated that an immobilized limb due to an injury can incur muscle loss at a rate of 0.5% daily. During the first 2 weeks of immobilization, an 8% muscle loss can bring about a strength loss of up to 23%."*
