Nutrition Tips
 
I recently had the privilege of moderating a Google Plus Hangout on the topic of Essential Nutrition for Wound Care. The guest for the interview was Registered Dietician and Nutrition Professor at UNC Chapel Hill, Amanda Holliday. It was such an informative interview that I wanted to share some of the nutrition tips Amanda gave our panel. I began with the question, Does what you eat matter when you’re trying to heal from a wound? To which she responded,
 
A better question is when does eating NOT matter?…..Never!
 
The first nutrition tip is that we need to break a part our food into the major areas we obtain nutrients and calories are a good place to start. When we are dealing with a physical trauma like a wound, our bodies are slightly metabolic and have increased needs. We need to make sure we are eating regularly. Eating only one meal during your day is not a good strategy for healing a wound. The best nutrition tip is to get back to eating 3 meals a day or several small meals throughout the day to get plenty of calories.
 
Fruits and Vegetables
What you eat before a surgery can help and even more importantly you need to establish a nutritional eating pattern. Choosing fruits and vegetables with Vitamin A and Vitamin C are good, but instead of worrying where all the vitamins are in your food; try to get your five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Our nutrition levels need to increase when we are healing from a wound so getting into a routine of eating fruits and vegetables prior to a surgery is a great nutrition tip.
 
Protein 
Protein is key for immune response and healing your wound. For most of us the recommendation for non-wound health is .8 grams of protein per kilo. To find this out you simply take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2.2, then multiply by 8. When you’re dealing with a wound, your need for protein increases from .8 grams to 1.2-1.5 grams per kilo. That translates into needing protein at every meal. If you watch the attached video, Amanda gives some great recommendations for high protein meals and more nutrition tips for vegetarians and vegans.

April 16, 2011 - Where were you?
Two years ago I was standing in my father's backyard watching a EF3 tornado pass about 200 yards in front of me. It happened so quickly I had no time to react to find a safe place.  Literally, things got quiet, then the proverbial train noise jumped out of nowhere over the tree tops and everything went crazy.  Just as quickly as it hit, it was gone; and was followed by a golf ball size hail storm that lasted several minutes.  I did not know that just moments later that same tornado would take the home of one of my best friends; leaving he, his wife and five children huddled in their bathroom tub. They were safe, but looking up at blue skies within seconds of their roof blowing away.  Others were not as lucky.
The pics below are the NC tornadoes as well as the Lowe's Home Building supply in Sanford, NC. (no fatalities).
Any of you guys in NC remember where you were this week, two years ago?

The community host of the Google+ Fitness and Nutrition Community +Bradford Lowry has published an account of the amazing journey (so far) he's been on since he created this community. Read to find out how a community that's not huge in membership earns the right to get a pat on the back from Google itself, and it's leader the privilege of an on-air meeting with the First Lady!

Athletic Injury
According to research, poor nutritional status can impede the healing process and recovery from injury. It is evident that insufficient protein intake can worsen your inflammatory response to injury and can lead to slower injury and wound healing.

Optimal Nutrition - Rapid Recovery
The human body is designed requiring basic nutrients, yet the majority of people fall short of the required daily nutritional levels. With infection rates climbing, and the cost of healthcare escalating, the ability to maintain healthy levels of nutrition is vital.

Great HOA on Monday!! 
 
Healthcare HOA #3 - Essential Nutrition for Wound Care: a discussion with +Amanda Holliday MS, RD, LDN and her students as they help answer the following questions: 
1. Does eating matter when you are trying to heal a wound?  Should I worry about what I eat prior to surgery?  After surgery?
2. Can you tell me more about specific types of protein and how they relate to wound healing?
3. What should I do if I'm overweight and trying to heal a wound?
4. I have diabetes and a wound.  What type of foods should I eat?
5. Can you give me an example menu that would incorporate all of this information?  Will this be expensive?

Amanda is a Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Professor at the University of North Carolina.

Bridging the Gap Between Medicine & Nutrition
Introduction

I am an award winning Orthopaedic Surgeon, board certified by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and  a Fellow in both the American College of Surgeons and the International College of Surgeons. I truly believe medicine is a calling more than a profession for me.  

After completing a 5-year Orthopaedic Surgery Residency and I went on to serve as a Medical Director, Associate Professor at the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences, and I now maintain a private practice in North Carolina where I specialize in joint reconstruction, sports medicine, minimally invasive surgery and trauma. I have advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine, and am an expert in treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

I have spent the last 6 years working to improve the lives of my patients by working in collaboration with top physicians around the country on the Optimal Health Formulas. I founded DRS Health, Inc. in June of 2010 to give physicians a platform to bring to the consumer genuine products based on the genuine needs of their patients.  I currently serve as President and Chairman of the DRS HealthMedical Advisory Board. I am the formulator for H3 Rapid Recovery, which I created for the wound care of my surgical patients.  By maximizing the key nutrients the body needs for wound recovery, H3 Rapid Recovery helps accelerate and improve recovery after surgery, injury  or strenuous exercise.  I am also the formulator of Bone & Joint Premium, which gives my patients the key nutrients for bone and joint health with support for Type 1 Collagen.  These key nutrients have been show to reduce the risk of Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis and help your body build and maintain healthy bone and joint tissue. 

I have been married for over 15 years to my lovely wife Kim, and we have been blessed with 6 children.
