In order to heal from a disease or injury, proper nutrition is one of the essential factors that allow the body to run at its optimum level. People with spinal cord injuries typically live very unhealthy lifestyles. Lack of movement and unhealthy choices in food have a huge negative effect on the healing process. Putting the proper nutrients in one’s body provides the fuel that enables the body to heal.
