After heart surgery

After heart surgery

Posted by: Nancy Pebworth

My father-in-law is 88 years old and just had open heart surgery. He is home after 6 days in the hospital and doing very well. He has lost his appetite. The Dr.’s cure….just one more pill! Is there something natural we can give him to help with his appretite.


Your father-in-law is probably on a lot of medication right now which may be causative/contributory to his loss of appetite. It would be best if you consult a good homeopath in your area who would be able to meet the patient personally and then choose a remedy to suit your father-in-law complaints. Homeopathy can also help in speeding up recovery after the surgery.

Good luck,
Dr. Firuzi Mehta
