What you will learn

An analysis of 191 research studies with 8600 patients documents that people who prepared for surgery had less pain, fewer complications, and recovered sooner.

Peggy Huddleston's Five Steps to Prepare for Surgery:

  1. Calm preoperative jitters guided by the Relaxation CD or tape. Feeling peaceful strengthens your immune system and creates the biochemistry that enhances healing.
  2. Visualize your recovery by turning worries into healing imagery.
  3. Surround yourself in the love of family and friends to feel calmer before surgery.
  4. Use "Healing Statements," words spoken during surgery that reduce the use of pain medication by 23-50%.
  5. Establish supportive doctor-patient relationships.

Ideally you will read the book and use the CD or tape one or two weeks before your operation. If you only have a day before surgery, you can still benefit.
