Questions of A More Technical Nature

Post Surgical Healing


I am an O, 43, female and in good health. I am going to have liposuction surgery on my outer thighs and posterior hips. The surgeon has no advice on nutrition, homeopathy or other pre or postsurgury preparations. My question is: Do you have any suggestions for nutrition and vitamins, homeopathy or other supplements to encourage positive and effective results and a powerful and quick healing and recovery? I am particularly concerned with bleeding and bruising. Thank you.


The herb Centellia asiatica (often found in preparations used to help varicose veins) can make a big difference in healing from surgery. Also homeopaths have traditionally used the remedy Arnica (always used in the homeopathic dilutions 3, 6 or 30c, never in tincture). Many people in health food stores and some pharmacists are now conversant in these remedies.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
