1 Week before Surgery (Recovering From Surgery)

Eating a well-balanced organic diet without sugar, refined carbohydrates and alcohol will help prepare the body for a swift recovery. Drink purified water, and follow a strict protocol of rest, sleep, exercise (if permitted) and stress management.

1. Citramins II

Minerals that are easy to absorb and helps build the blood. Contains zinc which promotes healing (surgery, injuries); essential to the immune system and brain. Lost in perspiration and stress. Contains calcium/magneisum, essential minerals for muscles and nerves; nature’s tranquilizer, natural muscle relaxant; promotes bone density, reduces joint pain, promotes restful sleep.

2. Pure Power Whey Protein

Amino acids are essential to rebuilding muscle.

3. VSL#3 Probiotics

Friendly bacteria in the lower intestine are killed by chemicals such as anesthesia and antibiotics. Boosts the immune system, restores natural balance that must exist to choke out bad bacteria and Candida yeast overgrowths.

4. C-Salts Buffered Vitamin C

Vitamin C is used up in high amounts during stress and injury. Plays a major role in collagen synthesis. Use this brand for dosing higher amounts.

Post- Surgery

Follow the instructions from the hospital and take it easy. Stay in a toxin-free environment.

Continue the pre-surgery program and add:

1. Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrosolate

Helps rebuild joint and muscle tissue.

2. Hammer Endurolytes Fizz

Excellent if nausea is experienced.

3. Liver DTX

Natural support for the body’s normal liver function.  Helps detoxify the body after anesthesia, antibiotics, medications (all filtered through the liver.)

4. L-Glutamine by Metagenics

Multiple studies have proven glutamine’s ability to speed recovery after surgery. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, but deficiencies can occur during metabolic stress. Glutamine is the preferred fuel for the sensitive, fast-growing cells that make up your gastrointestinal (GI) tract as well as your immune system. People who should not use Glutamine are those with end-stage liver or kidney disease where all excess protein must be avoided.
