Ayurveda can play a significant role in managing Corns and Calluses by practising a combination of corrective Ahar (diet), Vihar (exercise) and Aushadhi (medicines).

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Cooked foods rather than raw foods and salads should be consumed.
  • Consumption of light, dry, cold foods and pungent, bitter and astringent tastes should be reduced.
  • Hot, milky, creamy cereals (wheat, oatmeal or rice), soups and stews are all good for pacifying Vata.
  • Herbal teas (camomile, fennel, basil) are beneficial for Vata energy slumps.
  • Stimulants such as coffee and alcohol should be avoided.
  • Warm/hot water should be consumed throughout the day to flush out impurities and balance Vata.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Vata benefits from slow, grounding Yoga positions that connect with the breath.
  • Halasana is another great Vata reducing Yoga
  • Regular Yogic practice increases the awareness of mind and body, essential to maintain the exercise and food habit in diabetic condition.
