2. Get More Calcium
Not only does calcium help the healing process go faster but it also promotes stronger bones. Also, because it promotes stronger bones, the foods and drinks that contain high amounts of calcium can help you help the healing process go by that much faster. There are different foods and drinks that contain the calcium you need to help your bones get stronger and to promote the healing process.
According to WebMD, adults should consume 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams of calcium every day to get the right amount required for their body. If you don’t consume enough from the food and drinks that contain high amounts of calcium, ask your doctor if you should also take a supplement. He or she will tell you whether you need one and how much you should be taking daily.
Good sources of calcium include milk, cheese, yogurt, broccoli, turnips, kale, soy products, bok choy, salmon with bones, canned tuna, almond milk, fortified cereal, and juice.
