Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™ by Peggy Huddleston
- Reduce anxiety before surgery
- Use less pain medication
- Heal faster
What You Will Learn:
An analysis of 191 research studies with 8,600 patients documents that people who prepared for surgery had less pain, fewer complications and recovered sooner.
“Patients with unusually high levels of anxiety use Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™ to go forward with surgery in a confident manner.” -Lawrence H. Cohn, M.D. Professor of Cardiac Surgery, Harvard Medical School Former Chief of Cardiac Surgery, Brigham and Women’s Hospital
“I recommend Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster to all who require surgery and want to recover faster.” -Andrew T. Weil, M.D. Author, Spontaneous Healing Director, Program in Integrative Medicine College of Medicine, University of Arizona
Peggy Huddleston’s Five Steps to Prepare for Surgery:
1. Calm preoperative jitters guided by the Relaxation CD or MP3. Feeling peaceful strengthens your immune system and creates the biochemistry that enhances healing.
2. Visualize your recovery by turning worries into healing imagery.
3. Surround yourself in the love of family and friends to feel calmer before surgery.
4. Use “Healing Statements,” words spoken during surgery that reduce the use of pain medication by 23–50%.
5. Meet an anesthesiologist at your preoperative meeting or by phone to request use of the “Healing Statements”. Ideally you will read the book and use the CD or MP3 one or two weeks before your operation. If you only have a day before surgery, you can still benefit.
