Recipe for Removing Stubborn Corns

Dear Sister,

I have been a natural remedy fanatic a lot longer than I have been a breast cancer survivor. I know how difficult it is to live when you are unable to walk. I have had a “stubborn corn” on the bottom of my left foot for a year. I received it last July when I was stung by a yellow-jacket in the privacy of my own home. A month later, walking was becoming painful.

When I saw my oncology surgeon in October, she said that surgery would not be a good option. There is no guarantee that it would solve the problem and it could very well come back. She recommended that I start wearing orthotics in my shoe. I have a family friend who is a physician that works in the Emergency Room of a local hospital. He told me the same thing.

I have tried just about every natural remedy known to mankind to remove it. Nothing has worked until three weeks ago. Now would be a good time to show you the before and after pictures.

I bet you are wondering what did I do to accomplish this wonderful ‘feet,” aren’t you?

Word of advice: You have to take the following steps every day. I promise you that it will work!

Here’s the recipe complete with pictures:

Before you start: Chop and soak red onion in White Vinegar at least 4 hours before you go to bed. Preferably over-night. I started this process on Monday, July 20th. It felt SO GOOD to wear the cute shoes that I bought for Mother’s Day! Walking is no longer a pain!

Mother's Day present. I only wore them once since then.

Prepare this the night BEFORE! Here are the ingredients.

Chop red onion into pieces just large enough to cover your corn.

The tea tree oil works better than the over-the counter remedies without burning the skin.It thins the callous. As an added bonus, tea tree oil is an excellent natural mosquito repellent. You can use the tea tree oil twice/day as well. I have been using it after I soak my foot in the morning and after I get out of the shower.

I was walking with a minimal amount of pain within a week. I wore the orthotics in my mocassins or tennis shoes for two weeks. I have been pain-free for one week.

Enjoy your day!

Chris
