Feed Your Muscles to Promote Healthy Healing

Oct 20, 2014

Healthy Foods May Promote Healthy Healing

According to the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), inflammation can cause pain and swelling in your body and muscles when your immune system begins the process of healing a wounded or stressed area in your body. To help minimize the effects of inflammation and promote healthy healing, the ABMP suggests making simple changes in your diet by adding the following foods into your nutrition routine. 

  • Cold-Water Fish
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Whole Grains
  • High-Fiber Foods

Some Foods Better Left Off the Menu

After adding healthy food options like the above into your diet, it also may be helpful to avoid foods that could potentially increase inflammation. As such, the ABMP suggests avoiding the following foods.

  • Processed Foods
  • Red Meat
  • High-Fat Dairy Products
  • Sugar
  • White Foods

In addition to fueling your body with foods to promote overall health and healing, adopting a regular massage therapy routine also can help in increasing the health and wellness of your muscles and mind. For the best massage experience that’s designed to provide a handcrafted and personalized therapeutic session, turn to Elements Massage to promote overall healing for your mind and body.
