QUESTION: My best friend a Type B Pos, received breast implants about 10 years age. She has had to have this major surgery repeated (4) times. Her body "keloids" incredibly actually causing movement/displacement of the implants. This time she is on your Surgery A & C suggestions in ER4YT. Any other suggestions? Surgery yesterday. Time is of the essence. Thank you.
ANSWER: I would advise your friend also consider:
1. Bromelain (pineapple enzyme fraction) 500mg capsules: 1-2 capsules every 3-4 hours
2. Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola): The usual dosage of gotu kola is 20 to 60 mg 3 times daily of an extract standardized to contain 40% asiaticoside, 29 to 30% asiatic acid, 29 to 30% madecassic acid, and 1 to 2% madecassoside. Be patient, because gotu kola takes at least 4 weeks to work. For the prevention of keloid scars, the herb is usually taken for 3 months prior to surgery, and for another 3 months afterwards.
3. Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum): The most common dosage of horse chestnut is 300 mg twice daily, standardized to contain 50 mg escin per dose, for a total daily dose of 100 mg escin.
