Surgery Support

(1 customer review)


The Surgery Combination derives from those remedies traditionally indicated to promote healing and recovery after any surgery, including caesarean and lip/tongue-tie. It also contains remedies to assist with the occasional side effects of anaesthetic.


Our Surgery Support combination has been around in our clinic and for sale in our store since around 2001.

It includes remedies traditionally indicated to assist with healing and to promote recovery after any type of surgery, including caesarean, dental, hip and knee replacement, lip and tongue-tie, and similar.

The remedies are those most indicated to assist in some of the situations that may be experienced through a surgery such as bruising, bleeding, general trauma, healing and to help to keep the recovery process on track.

The Surgery Support combination also contains remedies to assist with the occasional side effects of and reactions to anaesthetic.

We have also included SOS – our version of Rescue Remedy to help with pre-surgery nerves, anxiety, shock and similar.

Mandy in Tasmania says: “I have recently had a hysterectomy and the Surgery remedy worked wonders. I like the combination remedies and have had success with the Hayfever & Allergy combo also”.

Pip commented: “Just wanted to say thankyou , both for your Elements of Health products and your generous and timely support. I have had my knee replacement operation.  I’m greatful all has gone well. And feel that the Elements of Health products I took helped a great deal. I took as you suggested  the Surgery Support just prior to, on day and straight after surgery for about a week. I had almost no bruising! Compared to a friends leg with same op who didn’t take Surgery Combo. Her leg was significantly bruised for at least 2 weeks after her op. She was amazed when she saw my leg with no bruising.”

Interactions with conventional medications

Homeopathic remedies work in a different way to pharmacy medicines and will not interact with any medications you have to take for your surgery.

If pain persists and other pain relief is required, give as per the directions on the bottle.

Check with your surgeon, GP or homeopath, as appropriate, if you have any questions or concerns.

When to Start

We usually suggest commencing on the day before your surgery to prep the system.

  • 3 doses on the day before.
  • 1 dose on the day of the surgery. If nil by mouth, just rub on the lips or wrist.
  • Then 3 or 4 times a day for up to one week after surgery or as required for recovery.
  • Start as soon as possible after you come round from surgery.
  • Putting the drops or 1 pilule in a water bottle or jug will get you off to a good start.
  • Don’t forget to stir or shake vigorously to activate the remedy in the water.

Surgery Support for small children

If you’d like to read and understand about the need for alcohol as a preservative, you can find out more in the FAQs.

Diluting the Remedy

If you are concerned about giving the drops to a baby too often, you can reduce the alcohol further as follows:

  • Put your drops in 1/4 glass of water
  • Stir vigorously with a teaspoon (this activates the remedy in the water)
  • The water is now your remedy
  • Give 1/2 teaspoon (0-12 months) or 1 teaspoon (over 12 months) and repeat for each dose

Most remedies are available in pilules.

    I have been using homeopathic remedies for my boxer dogs for many years now and the latest use was for Charlotte’s gum and teeth surgery. I was told that it was quite a bloody operation and I was anxious so I contacted Melanie and I used the Surgery remedy a few days before and after the operation and extra on the day. I had expected to bring her home and everywhere be like a crime scene but apart from some pinkish fluid in the morning, Charlotte’s gums healed quickly. Homeopathy helped both Tess and Flynn in their final days and Sophie and Charlotte see a bottle and expect to be dosed! I was using for myself recently and Sophie sat expecting her’s….Boxers also have great gums for the pillules! Finally, they don’t analyse it, they just feel better.
