Homeopathy can be a great support before and after surgery. For instance, research in France* has shown that Aconite is a highly effective treatment for post surgical anxiety in children.
Aconite is often given either before or after surgery to adults and children if there is extreme restlessness, anxiety and fear of dying. Pets can also benefit from this remedy when they have to be taken to the vet!
Aconite is just one of the many helpful remedies to have with you if you are scheduled for surgery or dentistry.
