Healing Causes

In human terms, we may not be able to grow a new limb but we do have some important repairing ability

Our skin is a wonderful example of regeneration. It is constantly shedding old skin and regenerating new skin cells. Bones, muscles and some nerve fibers can grow to repair themselves. Like a machine, our bodies can make minor repairs. All wounds heal using the same intrinsic process.

If we take a simple laceration or cut inflammation begins after injury and the wound site swells as the biochemical ingredients needed for wound healing gather: leukocytes and monocytes fibrinogen, histamine, prostaglandins, and vasoactive substances. A great deal happens during this stage it must occur to prepare the wound for the succeeding phases of wound healing. In fact, conventional drugs that limit inflammation such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAID’s) will slow the healing of a wound.
