This subject matter is complex, so I've shortened it with general ideas and guidelines which worked for me. When I was dealing with active Osteo in a multiple fractured Tibia, I used common sense as my guide. First, I was lucky enough to be going to college at the time in one of the Big Ten campuses and had the luxury of taking a course in nutrician. I was in a cast for (2 1/2)two years and six months continuously, halfway through my doctors said my bone was degenerating. I used vitamins and minerals especially; Omega-3 Fatty Acids(this is extremely Important), Folic Acid, Pangamic Acid, Vitamin E, Beta-Carotene, Niacin, Vitamin D, and Iron. I believe that I took a Vitamin C complex with bioflavinoids and a Vitamin B complex of 100 mgs of each B Vitamin, these were taken together at a special time of day with selected foods to aid absorbtion. I also took certain other Vitamins at special times of the day, alone with a food or drink that would aid in absorbtion. For instance Beta-Carotene, I took at night with a food group that would provide a nessesary ingrediant for it to work.
When possible the animal, vegatable or mineral found in it's natural form is best to use as a staple of the diet. For instance; I used flax seed or ate cold water fishes high in Omega-3's along with a Vitamin to help the body use the primary building blocks to accomplish the goal.
Omega-3's build new cell tissue walls which are stronger and healthier, in this case Calcium and Vitamin A with B complex Vitamins. This is a general formula for a healthier diet and nutrician which is the only way to combat Osteomylitis with the exception of anti-biotics.
However, garlic and other food groups are known to have antibiotic effects, and these can be used in conjunction. The key to this approach is separate and distinct Vitamins, NO MULTIPLE VITAMINS! and a healthy diet as a primary source for combating this disease. Diet can solve just about anything if you research and know your body and the food your body demands.
