Understanding Healing – Why does it sometimes take a while to heal, and how can it be sped up?

Dr. Corey Finan BSc, DC, CCSP, RMT, ART

When it comes to healing, everyone is different.  The requirements for healing can be the same for everyone, but how they heal can be different.  From genetic differences to nutritional differences, to physical differences, everyone heals slightly differently.  We will talk about some of the main ways healing can be slowed, and offer ideas on how to speed it up.

We will look at how Total Stress Load plays a role, how the inflammatory process begins and ends, how it is regulated, and what can speed it up or slow it down.  We will also talk about medications, and their implications on healing.  You will hopefully leave with answers that allow you to heal at an optimal level.
