Surgery Recovery Support
Once you and your surgeon have decided that you need surgery, then I must get you in your best shape to go through surgery successfully and to improve your recovery. Surgery recovery has long been an area of interest for me.
Prior to surgery, I will focus on building your nutrient reserves. I will help you to remove any supplements that may adversely impact your surgery, for example removal of all natural blood thinners or drugs that may interaction with medications given during or after surgery. I’ll help you with natural products to take for pre-surgery anxiety or claustrophobia (MRI tube).
After surgery, I will focus on building up your nutrient reserve, preventing infection and supporting collagen formation so that your body heals and repairs quicker. In some cases, I have visited patients at the hospital after surgery.
The Surgery support may include the Protein IV or the Standard Nutrient (Myer’s cocktail) IV along with oral supplementation of vitamins, herbs, minerals, acupuncture and other treatments.
I have assisted patients with the preparation before and immediate recovery after the following surgeries:
- Tumour surgery (breast, colon, brain, liver, gallbladder, gallbladder duct, pancreas, prostate, testicle, ovary)
- Hip replacement
- Knee replacement
- Heart bypass surgery
- Bowel surgery and colon resection
- Gallbladder removal
- Sport injury (knee, shoulder, wrist)
