General Bruising Information
Bruising occurs when the tissues beneath the skin become injured. There is no cut or opening in the skin, so when the small blood vessels are broken, blood fills the surrounding area turning the skin a bluish or blackish hue. Bruises usually heal in two to four weeks and often change color from black/purple to blue/red to yellow/green during the process. Bruising is a common body response to trauma, but when bruises occur very often and without obvious cause a more serious condition could be to blame.

Possible Causes of Bruising
Bruises are caused by bumping into a hard surface, a sudden blow to the body, a fall or other injury. People who do not eat enough fresh uncooked foods high in nutrients can be more susceptible to bruising than those who consume a healthy diet. Heavy smoking, menstruation or underlying health conditions, such as AIDS, allergies, anemia, cancer, hemophilia, infections, obesity, myelocytic leukemia and abnormal platelet function, can all be causes of easy and frequent bruising. Anyone with thin, delicate skin can also be prone to bruising.

Possible Symptoms of Bruising
Bruises are discolored areas of skin that start out black or purple and change to red/blue, then yellow/green over the course of days or weeks, depending on the severity of the injury.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Bruising
When a bruise is present, apply ice to the area as soon as possible after injury and keep it in place for 20 to 30 minutes to stop bleeding. Elevate the bruised area above the heart level to divert the blood away from the injury, if possible. Apply shredded raw potato directly on the injury to reduce discoloration and soreness.

To prevent bruising, eat plenty of fresh, uncooked foods high in mineral content. Eat dark green leafy vegetables, buckwheat and fresh fruits high in vitamin C and bioflavonoids, including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale and spinach. Eat foods high in zinc, like chicken, eggs and soybeans, to strengthen blood vessels. Do not take blood-thinning pain relievers, like aspirin and ibuprofen, because they can make discoloration worse. Acetaminophen, like Tylenol, relieves pain without thinning the blood.
