Pre- & Post-operative Support
Pre- and Post-Operative Support for Surgery
Note: Most hospital personnel will not have accurate information about or understanding of the use of homeopathic medicine. In fact, using any homeopathic remedy will not interfere in any way with any other drug or procedure you need for your surgery or recovery. Homeopathic remedies contain no actual chemical compounds other than water and a tiny amount of lactose. If you can use these remedies as soon as you are in the recovery suite after surgery, that will be ideal. However, it is vital for your well being to have an easy and collaborative relationship with your care providers while in the hospital; therefore waiting until you are out of recovery and in your regular room to use your post-op remedies is fine, and you will benefit from the support they provide.
