There is no home remedy that will speed bone healing.  Baths, lotions, potions don’t make your body repair the bone any faster.

If you smoke, stop, it will make your body heal faster.

Eat a balanced diet.  Your body needs nutrients to heal, and generate bone growth.  Within this ensure you are getting enough calcium.  But calcium alone isn’t enough if you are lacking other nutrients.

Don’t push it at the gym.  Even activities that dont’ directly use the foot can result in injury.  Smacking your foot on the bench getting into the adduction machine etc. I know you love it, but maybe take up swimming until it is healed.

Get enough sleep.

Don’t stress.  You have enough time until the wedding to be fully healed.  But if you press your luck early on, then you will delay healing, and take it closer to the wedding date.

I hope it heals soon! Shouldn’t ice (rather than heat) be part of the plan too?

Lots of milk?

Rest it! Rest helps so much! Don’t walk on it, elevate it, rest it as much as you can.

@bookworm88:  Ditto! Rest, Ice, Elevate:)


OP: If you want to continue working out, stick to the bike or water workouts.Keep as much pressure off of it as you can. Good luck!

Compression also helps. We use the RICE pneumonic in schools to remember it (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)

Soak your foot in Epson Salt water. It’ll help ease inflammation, pain as well as help the muscles and nerves function properly. Maybe do that daily or every other day. Hope you heal up soon and you needn’t worry!
