Hi, my future sister in law is getting married in 2 months time and has just broken her foot. She is dredding hopping down the isle. sad I'm wondering if there is anything that could be done to speed up the healing process? Calcium tablets maybe?
If you have any ideas, please let me know. smile

<I think that 6 weeks for a foot depending on which bone(s) will be stong enough to walk without splint/cast>

my DH broke one of the bones in his leg just above the ankle some years ago and at one point it looked like they were going to have to pin it. Fortunately they didn't which may just be down to good fortune on his part but he did take some homeopathic tablets to help as well...

I can't remember the name of them but I got them in Boots and they specifically stated that they were good for bones and bone injuries. Sorry I can't remember the name but I guess you could try and google it or check out the guidebook that they usually have on the shop shelf alongside the homeopathic medicines
