Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer
There are many things you can do at home to prevent infection and improve osteomyelitis. However, before you use any of these treatments you need to ask your doctor if it will interfere with any medication you are already taking.
The most important thing you can do is take vitamins!
-Vitamin C (250 to 500 mg, 2 times a day). Lower dose if diarrhea develops
-Vitamin E (400 to 800 IU per day).
-Vitamin A (10,000 IU per day).
Next you should take
-Probiotics -- Acidophilus and bifidobacteria (1 to 3 capsules per day, or 1 to 5 million organisms per day) they will strengthen your immune system in order to prevent infection.
Other antibacterial remedies that are easily accessible include:
-organic honey: kills bacteria, use topically
-chamomile tea: buy organic if possible, oral
-aloe vera: use from plant, use topically
-organic tea tree oil: kills bacteria, a little goes a long way. Use topically
