For those who have been wounded, ill, or injured, nutrition plays an important role in helping the body heal. Maintaining balanced nutrition during healing is possible with a diet that is energy balanced and nutrient dense. This balance must include protein for muscle recovery, vitamins for tissue repair and reduced scarring, and complex carbohydrates to ensure needed energy during the healing process.
