A month ago? What's your doctor say about it?

How's your diet? A healthy diet might help your body heal more efficiently.

Diet, vitamins (natural tend to be absorbed better than many synthetics), exercise, sleep.... all of these need to be looked into and possibly improved.

that is a bit disturbing. have you discussed this with your doctor? I know that slow wound healing can be a sign of certain problems. If you get the all clear from the doctor, maybe take some multiminerals and zinc picolinate.

Once upon a time when I was a high level athlete, cuts healed unbelievably fast.

Now I'm out of that and one of the things I notice is that cuts take longer to heal. This convinces me plenty of vigorous physical exercise has a lot to do with it, so consider building regularly scheduled exercise into your lifestyle.

Don't know if it's due to mitochondrial count in cells escalated by exercies, or better metabolism of foods, or whatever, but the difference it makes is real.

High metabolism...

OP I think your problem is the fact you have a very LOW metabolism.. I just read an article in the paper that in order to live longer you need to eat very little (lowering your metabolism) and exercise (which kinda contradicts it) though eating less will keep it the same/lower I guess...

Try exposing yourself to radioactive waste, hopefully you will mutate and gain a healing factor.
