Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster A Guide of Mind-Body Techniques by Peggy Huddleston
Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster shows how to use mind-body techniques to reduce anxiety, use 23–50% less pain medication, and heal faster. Documented by research, it is recommended by hospitals in the U.S., including Brigham and Women's Hospital, which is a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital and NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. It also includes chapters about using mind-body techniques to reduce the side-effects of chemotherapy, how to prepare children for surgery, and vitamins to speed healing.
You’ll learn to use relaxation to calm preoperative jitters and create the biochemistry that enhances healing. Next you are gently guided to use visualization to turn worries into healing imagery. Add to that the healing power of organizing a support group of family and friends who surround you in love for the half-hour before surgery.
Finally,Healing Statements, words spoken by the anesthesiologist during surgery are one of the five keys to the success of Huddleston’s program. Medical research documents that positive statements reduced the use of pain medication following surgery.
The book includes sections on lessening the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, vitamins that speed healing, preparing children for surgery, plus extensive resources and references.
