Prepare for surgery, heal faster

Item #3 on today’s to-do list is to order two more copies of Peggy Huddleston’s book, Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster. When I was having chemotherapy, a friend of a friend suggested I meet with Peggy and lucky for me, she was located in Greater Boston. She talked with me and taught me her own version of positive thinking and visualization. I found the technique very helpful and used it throughout my chemo treatments and the years following. The book and CD are my first choice to give friends who are facing surgery or cancer. Many have found the techniques work — shortening hospitalizations, reducing the need for pain medication, and enhancing healing.  Here’s an excerpt from the forward by Christiane Northrup, M.D:

The only way to take full advantage of the healing through surgery is by acknowledging an ingredient that has been missing for far too long—the innate wisdom of the patient. All surgeons know that though we can perform operations well technically, we do not have the power to heal the tissue we have injured. This is up to the patients and their connection with their own inner wisdom.

You can learn more at www.healfaster.com. Just visiting Peggy Huddleston’s website will lift your spirits. She even has a short program for those who only have a day or a few days before surgery. I encourage you to explore. And I must add that my cat Paganini and I are mentioned in a short section on “pet therapy,” an important source of healing for me.

Be well — and take care,

Carolyn
