broken 5th metatarsel- 3 months not yet healed


My girlfriend broke this bone on her foot 3 months ago.
She went into a walking cast for a while, now on sneakers. She started a bone stimulator now at the 3 month mark.
My questions are:
1) Some doctors say, yes walk on it. It is good for it. And some doctors have said walk on it as little as possible. What is your opinion and why?
2) Are ther any exercises/ vitamin or mineral supplements that may help?
3) Any other advise?
Thank you,

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
