Why your cut finger heals too slow

How quickly a cut heals depends on several factors. The bacteria “mantel” on the outer layer of our skin is the first-line of defense against pathogens. When our skin is compromised, even small wounds heal slowly and staph infections occur often. You’d think that antibacterial soaps would solve this problem but they actually make things worse by damaging the healthy bacteria along with the bad – plus, antibacterial soaps don’t touch MRSA and other deadly pathogens making this soap a lose-lose. Vitamin A is what the body uses to keep epithelial cells (outer layer skin, lung and intestinal cells) healthy. Without sufficient vitamin A, bacteria, fungi and viruses enter the body with little resistance. Another big factor in slow-wound healing is low thyroid function which “turns down the thermostat” in the cell nucleus, making them weak and susceptible to disease. Iodine makes the thyroid run and also speeds wound healing when applied topically to wounds.
