Maximize Your Healing With Arnica Cream: The light-textured topical Arnica cream is taken to reduce bruising, bleeding, aches, swelling, and inflammation. Combining Boiron's topical form of Arnica with Vitamedica's oral Arnica pill helps reduce swelling and accelerate healing faster than using Arnica pills alone. Do not use the cream on open wounds or broken skin. Add Arnica Cream by selecting it from the “Color” drop-down menu above.  

Note: This Kit does not contain any Vitamin E.

Product Description & Benefits: The doctor-recommended VitaMedica Plastic Surgery Recovery Pre & Post-Op Program (w/Multinutrients, Arnica & Bromelain) is a complete pre- and post-operative healing system designed specifically for patients undergoing plastic surgery that contains all the nutrients needed to help a patient heal more quickly, minimize swelling, reduce bruising, speed wound healing, improve patient safety, prevent infection, and support the immune system. Taken as early as 14 days before surgery and for approximately 14 days following surgery, the 4-bottle kit includes 2 specialty multinutrient formulas (1 AM bottle containing tablets taken in the morning and 1 PM bottle of tablets taken in the evening) that contain elevated doses of crucial vitamins and minerals that enhance wound healing and speed up recovery (Click here for a full ingredients list), a Bromelain (with Quercetin) bottle containing 60 capsules that helps reduce swelling and lead to faster healing time, and a bottle of 120 Arnica Montana (30X) tablets that helps reduce post-operative bruising and swelling. The VitaMedica Surgery Recovery Program is very safe, does not contain any Vitamin E, and has been specially formulated to not include any nutrients that may have a negative effect on the cosmetic outcome.

Both before and after surgery, it is important to build your nutrient reserves with essential supplements, as this will enable you to have better cosmetic results by allowing your body to repair itself faster, promote better wound healing, limit scarring, and reduce the risk of infection. Surgery is a stressful event that creates demands on the body. Healing requires that the body create new tissue and blood vessels, repair injured tissue and step up the production of cells that repair wounds. This complex activity cannot occur efficiently if your diet is short on essential nutrients. Having an inadequate supply of nutrients before and after surgery has been associated with slower post-surgery healing, increased complications, higher risk of infection, prolonged swelling, slower wound healing, excessive scarring, and unstable collagen formation that is necessary for repairing and building tissue damaged by surgery. For this reason, the VitaMedica Plastic Surgery Pre/Post Program can help in providing the optimal supply of nutrients that are crucial for healing.

The VitaMedica Plastic Surgery Pre/Post Program contains the following Healing Ingredients:

 

  • Arnica Montana 30x Homeopathic Medicine: A homeopathic remedy hat helps to reduce bruising and swelling.
  • Bromelain (1500 mg; 3000 MCUs): A natural, proteolytic enzyme (digests protein) that is extracted from the root of the pineapple stem and is beneficial for reducing inflammation (swelling) and treating tissue injury. Bromelain inhibits prostaglandins that cause inflammation and promotes the formation of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins.
  • Quercetin (1500 mg): Quercetin is a flavanoid that is a plant pigment found in large amounts in foods such as onion and apples. Quercetin enhances the impact of Bromelain and slows down the release of inflammatory mediators (including histamine) and thus helps reduce swelling.
  • Vitamin A (25,000 IUs): A fat-soluble vitamin that must be present for wound healing and acts as an antioxidant that is necessary for new cell growth, and repair and maintenance of tissue. Vitamin A also helps treat superficial wrinkles, prevent skin disorders, protect against cancer, and helps remove age spots.
  • Vitamin C (750 mg): A water-soluble vitamin that is vital for wound healing and acts as an antioxidant and is needed for repair and growth of tissues damaged by surgery. Vitamin C plays a primary role in collagen formation, which is crucial for wound healing.
  • The VitaMedica Surgery Program DOES NOT contain any Vitamin E or Vitamin K
  • B-Complex Vitamins: The “Stress Fighting” family of water-soluble vitamins help maintain and promote the health of skin, nerves, eyes, hair, liver and mouth. The B-vitamins are essential for smooth skin and lustrous, shiny hair. The VitaMedica Progarm includes the “unofficial” vitamins, inositol and choline.
  • Zinc (21 mg): A trace mineral that acts as an antioxidant and is essential for protein synthesis and collagen formation. This mineral helps to promote the healing of wounds and increases the absorption of Vitamin A.
  • Selenium (210 mcg): A trace mineral that acts as an antioxidant and that inhibits the oxidation of fats.
  • Copper (210 mcg): A trace mineral that works in balance with vitamin C and zinc to form elastin, which is essential for the formation of collagen. Copper is necessary for the function of an enzyme which is required to cross-link collagen and elastin. Collagen also aids in the formation of bone, hemoglobin, and red blood cells.
  • Bioflavonoids (600 mg): Bioflavonoids strengthen the walls of capillaries and thereby prevent bruising. Bioflavonoids also help build resistance to infection and are potent antioxidants that enhance the absorption of Vitamin C and prevent this nutrient from being oxidized.

Instructions For Use:

AM/PM Healing Multinutrients Instructions: Begin taking the AM/PM Healing multinutrients up to two weeks prior to a scheduled surgery and for at least two weeks post-operatively. Take three tablets of the AM Multinutrient with breakfast or lunch. Take three tablets of the PM Multinutrient with dinner or before bedtime. Each individual is unique and your requirements may vary.

Additional vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements should not be taken during the peri-operative period. In particular, the following should be discontinued two weeks prior to, and for up to two weeks after surgery: bilberry, cayenne, dong quai, echinacea, feverfew, fish oil caps, garlic, ginger, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, hawthorne, kava kava, licorice root, ma huang (ephedra), melatonin, red clover, St. John’s wort, valerian, and yohimbe.

About 10% of people experience the so-called “niacin flush” with high-potency vitamins. This involves a temporary reddening of the skin that lasts 10-15 minutes. It is a normal response and is harmless. Usually it will disappear after one or two days of taking the vitamins. To decrease the chances of the niacin-flush occurring, we recommend building up slowly to the full dose of Clinical Support for Surgery. When starting taking the multinutrients, simply reduce the dose to one tablet for 1-2 days, then two tablets for 1-2 days, and so forth. This approach will also help to prevent the uneasy sensation that occurs in some people's stomach after taking vitamins.

Bromelain with Quercetin Instructions: Begin taking Bromelain 3 days prior to surgery and continue until the inflammation has subsided (usually 7 days). Take 2 capsules three times a day. Bromelain should be taken between meals preferably on an empty stomach. For example: upon awakening, late morning and late afternoon. Do not eat or drink anything by mouth (including this supplement) after midnight prior to surgery. Following anesthesia and surgery, it is not uncommon for some patients to experience decreased appetite or gastrointestinal upset. If you develop these symptoms after surgery, delay taking Bromelain until your stomach is feeling better and you are able to eat a normal diet.

Additional vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements should not be taken during the peri-operative period. Please see above for the list of nutrients that should be discontinued.

Arnica Montana 30X Instructions: Begin taking Arnica Montana immediately after your surgery and continue taking until the bruising and swelling has subsided (usually 7-14 days). Take 3 tablets, 3 times a day. Important: Place tablets under the tongue and let dissolve naturally. Do not brush your teeth, eat, or drink anything but water, 15 minutes before or 15 minutes after taking Arnica Montana. Do not handle the tablets. Do not eat or drink anything by mouth (including this supplement) after midnight prior to surgery. Following anesthesia and surgery, it is not uncommon for some patients to experience decreased appetite or gastrointestinal upset. Since Arnica Montana is a sublingual medication (under the tongue), taking this product should not aggravate an upset stomach.

Additional vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements should not be taken during the peri-operative period. Please see above for the list of nutrients that should be discontinued.
