The body is a “nutrient driven” machine, continuously breaking down and rebuilding connective tissue on a daily basis. This happens in both a state of injury and non-injury. However, during a state of injury, healing connective tissue requires many more nutrients. Good nutrition is vital as repair places a great demand on the body's stores of existing nutrients.
There is now scientific evidence to support that “nutritional” therapy is a key factor in connective tissue repair. By creating the correct “nutritional environment” we can stimulate new growth and accelerate the repair process. So it is important for people working on closing their diastasis to pay attention to the nutritional component of healing connective tissue.
