10-29-2012, 08:37 PM
Can anyone recommend any juices to help relieve pain after a minor surgical procedure? Trying to help a friend who doesn't want to rely solely on drugs to help in her healing process.
Any help would be appreciated.

Has your friend already had the procedure or is it pending? Look up anti inflammatory foods and also meditation. Preparedness and positivity is your friend when it comes to post-op pain.

I would definitely include blueberries as I have found them very helpful in reducing inflammation. Also ginger root has a long history of being used to treat joint pain and inflammation.
Also get plenty of Vitamin C as this has anti-inflammatory properties and aids in recovery. I would try something like this...
3 handfuls blueberries
3 handfuls spinach
small piece of ginger root
I hope your friend makes a speedy recovery and doesn't experience too much pain.

I'm having a hip surgery done on Nov 21st with a 6 week no weight bearing timeframe afterward.
I'm very interested in what I can do before, during and after surgery to help heal and help with pain. I'm on vicoden right now (very low dose usually 1-2 5/500 a day).
I cannot take ibuprophen (spelled) it rips up my stomach. Kombucha does help somewhat with that BUT I don't have any babies right now and cannot afford to keep buying it at the local grocery. I've got to be extra frugal now that I'm not working and we're living in Hawaii.
I refuse to take tylenol (other than whats in vicoden) as I think it's a very dangerous drug. No asprin before surgery.
Provided your friend does not have dental amalgam fillings, and/or does not have known heavy-metal issues, it is worth considering boswellic acid (frankincense). It is a fabulous anti-inflammatory and pain killer.
Should your friend be interested in this, it must be checked with her doctor first, and of course some self-directed research would be appropriate, too.
Please don't ignore my caution about heavy metals and about seeking medical advice. It's not optional, it's important.
