any supplements/food that can be recommended after general anesthesia operation?

I had surgery and I am determined NOT to look up the long-term side effects of general anesthesia. No way I could have avoided it, so what is done is done. There is something more important I would like to concentrate on now: is there anything (in addition to following a paleo diet) that I should consider taking in order to lessen the effects of the drugs in my body and help with the elimination of these drugs from my body?

thanks.

I found this quote by Dr BG on Masterjohn's blog. "I think evolutionarily hominids obtained vitamin D from sources other than sunlight. The pygmies who live under the canopy consume a high diet of grubs which are rich in vitamin D. Mushrooms have ergocalcfierol and are another source. Salmon is high in vitamin D as well during certain seasons." She posts here as Grace.

Oh this is great, I have been on diet of smoked salmon almost exclusively for the last month, so should have *some* serum D3 levels present. Must carry on with it. Yup, too cold for sun at the moment.

There are not many. Salmon and eggs that I know for sure.You have to eat a lot to raise serum Vit D3. I keep my Vit D3 at 65-70ng/mL by supplementing with 5000IU Vit D3 gel caps with the carrier being olive oil. Many of the companies use soybean oil as the carrier. I have seen some references to physicians using 50,000IU a day for a short time to quickly raise the level. I have seen one report that a pharmacy error resulted in a dosage of 500,000IU/day for 6 months which did not result in adverse effects. The very best source is sunlight but a bit too cold in the Alps for sunbathing.

I had surgery recently and instead of anti biotics I took a whole bottle of probiotics over 3 days and it worked great unlike if you take a few per day. Also Zyflamend,MSM and Cordyceps extract. Duck eggs are rich in D3

I know Dr Davis wants his patients he admits to surgery to have adequate amounts of serum Vit D3 prior to surgery so that the patient heals better than without adequate Vit D3. Post op, more Vit D3 now might be appropriate til you totally heal. Best wishes.

Silibinin aka silymarin is an OTC supplement that has been shown to be hepatoprotective and likely speeds the healing of the liver.

Here is a link to the mayo clinic's selected references for the item: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/silymarin/NS_patient-milkthistle/DSECTION=selected%2Dreferences

For an easy to read discussion of silymarin research and use, I recommend http://www.imminst.org/forum/topic/38806-the-official-milk-thistle-silymarin-thread/

May you heal completely and quickly, Adam

I used this after surgery: http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/surgical-healing-formula-60-p-nutrition-dynamics.html

It helped BIG time. My surgeon said I was healing very quickly with the open wound. The doctor said I healed about 2-3 weeks sooner than normal and was impressed. I'd look into the Surgical Healing Formula.

I was told that anaesthetics deplete potassium levels so maybe check your diet to see if you can supplement with foods rich in potassium. http://www.thepotassiumrichfoods.com/
