Healing Broken Bones and Other Serious Injuries (Attention Especially Skateboarders, Snowboarders)

In the course of recovering from a fractured wrist, I discovered the following modalities. I'm listing them here without going into detail. Since not a lot of people have broken bones (or other injuries), the bulk of this post is on the next page.
1. Comfrey seems to be a magic healing plant. Google it. Compresses made from fresh leaves are best, but there are other comfrey products:

Making comfrey compresses. Plus lots of good info on eating comfrey, other aspects of this plant: http://hubpages.com/health/How-to-use-Comfrey-to-Heal-Broken-Bones

2. Everyone seems to agree that you should take calcium citrate and vitamin D3 for bone healing. I tend to gag on horse-size pills, and found the following work-arounds:
