In order to promote fracture healing, the diet of fracture patients can be divided into three stages: early stage, middle stage and late stage. According to the development of the disease, different foods can be added to promote hematoma absorption or callus formation.
In the early stage (1-2 weeks), the injured part was swollen with blood stasis, the meridians were blocked, and Qi and blood were blocked. According to traditional Chinese medicine, "if the blood stasis is not removed, the bone will not grow" and "if the blood stasis is removed, the new bone will grow". It can be seen that detumescence and blood stasis is the most important factor in fracture healing. In principle, the diet should be light, such as vegetables, eggs, bean products, fruits, fish soup, lean meat, etc., and avoid sour, hot, dry and greasy food. Especially, you should not eat fat and nourishing products, such as bone soup, fat chicken, stewed fish, etc., too early. Otherwise, blood stasis will stagnate, which will delay the course of disease, slow the growth of callus, and affect the recovery of joint function in the future. At this stage, food therapy can be used Panax notoginseng 10 grams, angelica 10 grams, pigeon 1, a total of stew cooked rotten, soup and meat into, once a day, for 7 to 10 days.
In the middle stage (2-4 weeks), most of the blood stasis and swelling were absorbed. In this stage, the main treatment was to relieve pain, remove blood stasis and generate new blood, and connect bones and tendons. In order to meet the needs of callus growth, we can add bone soup, Tianqi stewed chicken and animal liver to supplement more vitamin A, D, calcium and protein. Food therapy available Angelica 10 grams, 15 grams of Drynaria, Dipsacus 10 grams, 250 grams of fresh pork or beef ribs, stew for more than 1 hour, soup and meat together, for 2 weeks.
Late stage (more than 5 weeks): after 5 weeks of injury, the blood stasis and swelling of the fracture were basically absorbed, and callus began to grow, which was the late stage of fracture. The treatment should be invigorating, by Tonifying the liver and kidney, Qi and blood, to promote the formation of stronger callus, and to relax the tendons and activate the collaterals, so that the adjacent joints of the fracture can move freely and flexibly, and restore the function of the past. Taboos can be eliminated in diet. Recipes can be supplemented with old mother chicken soup, pig bone soup, sheep bone soup, stewed fish, etc. those who can drink can choose Eucommia Drynaria wine, jixueteng wine, tiger bone papaya wine, etc. Diet available wolfberry 10g, Drynaria 15g, Dipsacus 10g, Yimi 50g. Decoct Drynaria rhizoma and Dipsacus asperata first, then add another 2 kinds of congee. Once a day, 7 days as a course of treatment, 3-5 days after each course of treatment, a total of 3-4 courses.
