Surgery is an invasive intervention in a patient’s body. It is performed by a surgeon. The reason for surgery varies from an injury, aesthetic surgery or other reasons. The condition post-surgery is affected by both the success of the surgery itself and by post-operative care.
Homeopathic remedies have a lot to offer in helping your recovery from surgical procedures.
Homeopathic medicines can reduce complications of surgery and augment healing so that people can recover more quickly afterward. These are the following remedies:
