Surgery has been critical to save lives and improve quality of life. Surgery is used in treating various congenital deformities, structural problems, severe injuries, life-threatening pathological conditions (e.g., cancerous tumors), cesarean sections, as well as plastic and reconstructive surgeries.
However, surgery remains a form of injury not only to the body but often to the mind too. The body needs to recover from the cut in the tissues while the mind needs to manage anxiety and the uncertainty of what will happen. During recovery, the body and the mind struggle to regain homeostasis. Homeopathy can help improve the recovery by acting at all levels of the body, mind and emotions and bringing them back to a state of balance.
Surgery may be medically necessary to remove an abscess, a tumor, kidney stones, gallstones, or other diseased parts. However, the removal doesn't always change the underlying pathological process and their ailments may resurface or in some cases new ailments may appear. More serious pathology may develop with some patients following surgery. The human condition is indeed sensitive to trauma and injuries. Since surgeries are a form of trauma, the way we deal with it is to detach ourselves from our body, which in turn affects our pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is the master gland that governs all our glands in the body (from hormones to immune system). Depending on our individual susceptibilities (our genetic disposition), it may start to deteriorate following surgeries especially if you already don't have a strong constitution (i.e. a higher level of susceptibility).
Homeopathy focuses on the underlying cause / reason of the original imbalance and reduces our individual susceptibilities (which could be from our genetic disposition). Homeopathy works best if started before going into surgery so you build a strong constitution and can bounce back after surgery. At a high level, homeopathy can help:
1. Prevent infection and hemorrhage
2. Speed up healing and recovery
3. Reduce pain
4. Reduce digestive issues such as nausea and other discomforts
5. Deal with various emotions experienced pre and/or post surgery
Here are some examples of surgery cases we have been supporting with homeopathy:
surgery involving cartilage and periosteum (as in the knee or elbow)
gynecological surgery: dilation and curettage, hysterectomy, episiotomy, abortion or miscarriage)
removal of the breast or a lump
gall bladder removal
tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy
surgery for bullet wounds or stab wounds
amputation of limbs
plastic and reconstructive surgeries
Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines and do not interfere in conventional treatment or procedures. They can be used as additional support to help pre and post surgery for men, women, children and the elderly.
The integration of homeopathic medicines with surgical care uses the best of both worlds. Whether you are planning to have a surgery or have already had a surgery, contact us to discuss your concern before booking an appointment.
