A Better Knee - Overview hyphen hypen Weight Management

Before Surgery:

Before surgery, you need to be optimized to your best possible state of readiness. Smoking should stop, infections should be treated, and the body should be given the building blocks for healing. Prior to surgery, I advocate fiber and probiotics in the form of the NutriClean™ system that serves to both avoid the constipation associated with postoperative narcotics and to restore the normal gut flora that are wiped out by the antibiotics used at the time of surgery. The nutraMetrix™ Multivitamin and Multimineral Formula and the nutraMetrix™ B complex formula take advantage of the unique Isotonic delivery system to replenish any nutrient deficit prior to the stress of surgery.

After Surgery:

After surgery, you need to be given the resources to enhance your recovery. My Post-Operation package includes nutraMetrix™ OPC-3™ to provide state-of-the-art protection from oxidative stress and damage along multiple sites in the free-radical cascade. Free radicals are those damaging electron scavengers which are responsible for DNA damage, aging, and delayed tissue healing. Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics to help resume normal digestive function that my have been disturbed through surgical processes and anesthesia, and B Complex for energy and support of healthy red cell production.
