Questions about supplements and nutrition
How high should the D3 level be for surgery?
Vitamin D3 is extremely important for bone healing and remineralization. According to Prof. Choukroun, the level of vitamin D3 (25-OH-D3) >should be 70ng/ml or >175 nmol/l.
Can vitamin D3 and K2 be taken together with blood thinning medications?
This combination is not a problem with new generation blood thinning medications (Xarelto, Lixiana, etc.). In the case of “older” anticoagulants such as Marcoumar, the intake of vitamin K2 should be coordinated with the family doctor.

How should I eat to improve my wound healing and recovery?
1. as unprocessed and organic as possible.
2. no allergenic foods: foods containing gluten, dairy products, pork. This should be avoided at all costs.
3. as little sugar and carbohydrates as possible. Also as little fruit as possible, because of the fructose. Instead, more proteins and healthy fats.
4. include as many raw and cooked vegetables in the diet as possible. You can not do without cooked vegetables, as they are the ideal source of minerals.
