Homeopathic Support in Surgery Recovery

Homeopathy is a highly effective system of medicine with a proven track record that goes back centuries. While it is a standalone system of treatment, it can also work in conjunction with other medical systems such as the traditional medical system that many Americans subscribe to. That is a major advantage when a person needs to have surgery done.Homeopathy cannot replace surgery when it becomes the only option for recovery from sickness or injury. However, that is not to say that homeopathy does not have a role to play in surgical recovery.

The Recovery Road

Surgery is defined as “The treatment of injuries or disorders of the body by incision or manipulation, especially with instruments.” Surgery can be frightening but advances in medicine and surgical techniques and technology have made it safer than ever before, even in the most complicated cases. However, the fact remains that surgery, while being a remedy, is also a major assault on the bodyirrespective of whether it is a routine appendectomy, or major cardiac or brain procedures. The recovery from surgery can be slow and at times painful.  In some cases, the patient will have to undergo major post surgical rehabilitation. The satisfactory progress of the recovery will define the success of the surgery itself. This is where homeopathy can play a major role. Not only will it promote recovery, the need for consuming narcotic medication can also be reduced.

Common Homeopathic Medications in Surgery Recovery

Here are some of the common medications often prescribed for surgical recovery:
     
        ·   Arnica Montana – This helps the body deal with pain, assists in the reduction of bruising and enables faster healing.

        ·   Phosphorus – Helps to deal with the unpleasant after-effects of anesthetics.
                       
        ·   Ledum Palustre – Helps in recovery from the puncture wounds associated with surgery.

       There are many mor emedicines in homeopathy, and a homeopathic doctor will know what to prescribe.

       Consult Doctors

       If you or someone close to you is planning on having surgery done, consult a homeopathic doctor with details of the medical condition and the proposed surgical procedure. The doctor may or may not conduct an examination of her own. She will then discuss with you the ways in which homeopathic medication can help in the recovery process. You can then inform the surgeon about the advicefromthe homeopathic doctor and if required the two of them can discuss the case and work out a combined medication process that will help in the recovery. The  difference that this approach can make in the recovery process can be amazing. There are two critical issues to keep in mind. First is notto try and treat yourself – medication should only be taken as approved by the surgeon and the homeopathic doctor. Second, consult only a qualified, experienced homeopathic doctor, preferably one who is trained in both traditional medicine and homeopathy.
