Why take these supplements
Some patients have various bottlenecks for healing that can be from nutritional deficiencies or underlying medical issues. Most people do not need supplements to heal routine surgical incisions. However, if a wound is chronic or not responding well to the usual treatments, these supplements can often help to accelerate the healing process.
How long to take them
Take these supplements for one month, then re-evaluate the need to continue taking them with Dr. Hoopes each month following that.
