To survive you can use different healing items that work differently. For example Bandages, they restore 75% of your health, while a Granola Mix can restore 100% of your health. It is best to keep Healing Items in Quick Slot, for instant consumption during battles. This guide will help you with everything, from healing items, to how to use them to how to add them to the Quick Slot bar.
