Sometime logic must be thrown out the door.
But when it comes to healing, I'm starting to wonder.

When you chat with a Gorajo Skinweaver:
Player: I'm not in the habit of rummaging about in wounds.

Skinweaver: Then how can you possibly heal anything? I am not criticising, naabe, just curious. How can a human heal their own wounds if they do not delve in and pluck the corruption with their own fingers?
Skinweaver: I am unsure if I can learn much in this curious place. You eat mouthfuls of food to heal, yet your wounds are in your legs, arms and torso. Little in this place makes any sense.


In game, we all eat foods. Fish, cakes, pies, cabbages, bananas, you name it.
Yet, we rarely ever do proper medical techniques like bandaging, stitching, setting broken bones.
Yes, magic does come into play purging poisons and such, but that alone doesn't answer the question.

But maybe ...
We know the Elder Gods created Gielinor to be the ultimate hub in Anima Mundi.
We can do amazing things with the raw energy.
But life itself has at least some Anima in it.

What if? What if the richness of the Anima in the planet is so strong, that any fish or crops grown here is enough to heal creatures directly?
Broken bones or poison or an explosion to the face or having a spear jammed thru your chest, the Anima within that Shark or Wild Pie is potent enough to magically/quickly heal you, at least partially.

And it's not necessarily limited to Gielinor. We do know that some off-world places, such as The Fisher Kingdom, have fishing spots and stuff that grows that are edible.
So the Anima of any planet carries over.

Aside of game mechanics reasons (you can hardly play mmo if it would take hours to heal combat wounds), this theory has a point, there is magic everywhere on the planet so food effects can be also affected by it.

Yet we foobz are glad for it :) Though it makes us better food for elders on the other side o the coin :/

And the tremendous amount of anima on Gielinor allows crops and plants to grow in mere hours, whereas in real life, where the anima is so much weaker, it takes months. It makes total sense! And when we cast spells like Rapid Growth, it pumps more anima into the plant than normal, allowing for even faster growth

I've always considered this to be the case, yes. It's long since been my belief that the reason we heal any wounds from food is not that food gives us nourishment.. it's because every living being is a tiny bit of the "imperfect" anima of an imperfect world, this includes fish. On top of that, most crops are things the Elder Gods created. Zaros said it himself, they do purposely make plantlife, which means most plants also have anima in them.
When we heal ourselves we are literally just refueling the anima inside us, allowing our body to function properly once again.

Shush. You are lending credence to the religious beliefs of Brassicans. Humility is self-destruction, pride is the destruction of all else. And He said, "
Let there be light.
"
And then there were none.

The problem is it makes nearly perfect sense. :P
