Apple Cider Vinegar for Feet Combating Corns, Callouses and Warts
For Corns and Callouses: First soak affected areas in warm water with 1/3 cup ACV for 20 minutes. After soak, rub areas briskly with coarse towel, then gently use a pumice stone or wand. Now apply full-strength ACV-soaked gauze bandage overnight, and in the morning prepare a fresh ACV soaked bandage for daytime use. These treatments help soften and dissolve corns and callouses. Check shoes for comfort and fit. Wrong shoes are main cause of corns, callouses, bunions and blisters. For casual wear, Birkenstock shoes are great and use orthotic inserts when needed. Give yourself weekly pedicures, massages and exercise feet daily. Doing this while watching TV is ideal. Treat yourself to foot reflexology therapy (page 108). Walking barefoot on sand, grass and at home is beneficial. Be good to your feet – they carry you through life! We kept famous foot Dr. Scholl going strong, healthy and alert to almost 100 years young!
