To be taken at least one week before surgery, and during the healing period afterwards.
- 5,000 – 10,000 mg vitamin C daily
- 2,000 – 5,000 vitamin D3 daily
- Vitamin A: 5,000 iu daily
- Vitamin E: take only after surgery due to potential effects on blood clotting: 400 – 800 iu daily
- B-complex vitamins: 100 mg complex daily
- Zinc: 30 mg daily
In addition, I recommend using homeopathic remedies to aid in the healing and pain relief. A combination of the following usually works well: Arnica/Ledum/Staphisagria: I recommend 200 c, to be taken as needed. This may eliminate the need for other pain control methods.
