Trauma and surgery

Did you know?
  • You can easily improve outcomes of many planned surgeries by increasing vitamin D ahead of time
    • Cancer surgery is the only known exception - extra Vitamin D is OK only if doctor reduces the chemo doses
  • A loading dose of Vitamin D also improves unplanned hospital admissions
  • Improvements include
    • Shorter recovery time
    • Shorter ICU time
    • Reduced deaths – in hospital, next month, next year
    • Reduced Sepsis = blood poisoning = infection
  • Glutamine and Omega-3 have also been proven to help several traumas/surgeries
  • Note: Vitamin D also prevents the need for various surgeries and Omega-3 prevents many concussions/TBI
