AdvtftH*»m«nt What everyone should know about Corns and Calluses By IN A LEE Yesterday, at the office of a foremost New York foot specialist, I experienced what may prove to be the answer to the foot problems of millions. I was shown a quick, easy way to relieve tired, aching feet — even feet tortured with corns and callusesl As a reporter, I'm on my own feet about 12 hours a day. For years I've suffered — not only from recurring athlete's foot, and that tired, aching feeling so familiar to salesmen, postmen, teachers and others who must stand on their feet for their livelihood ... I tried everything from specially made $45 shoes to all kinds of foot powders, creams and salves — all to practically no avail. So I was naturally skeptical, when I was assured in a doctor's office that in a few minutes I would be relieved of all the foot miseries that had been plaguing me for years. I just couldn't believe it — but here is what actually happened! In just 20 minutes, the itching misery of my athlete's foot had vanished. My corns were softened and dead skin washed away. So were my calluses! In fact, my feet felt simply wonderful — and that is why I am writing this article — so that others will be helped as I have been! For this doctor's simple method is now being made available to the public for home usel Anyone Can Use It For the first part of this 3-way method the doctor had me place my sore; tired feet in a basin of hot water. To this water he added a green powder containing Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Lithium, Iodides and other medicinal minerals (similar to those found in the waters of famous natural spas). Almost immediately I began to feel a new and wonderful sensation. All the pressure and the heavy feeling in my legs seemed to float away. My feet felt as though they had no weight at all. My foot and leg muscles seemed to relax. I could actually feel soreness and pain disappearing. "The perspiration, the dirt and the odors so common to your feet are now being cleansed from your pores," the doctor informed me. "The hot mineral solution is easing surface tensions, stimulating circulation and sending a fresh supply of new blood to your feet This helps cleanse the pores that soap and water cannot reach." I could see dry, dead scaly tissue being flaked away. I touched the hardened surfaces of my feet and found that they were now soft and smooth. I could feel corns and calluses softened and loosened. After about 15 minutes the doctor had me remove my feet from the bath. Then, while -they were still moistr he began to massage them with a special volcanic lava stone which he had already soaked in the Footherapy bath. It felt as if my feet were being gently caressed with wool. In just 3 or 4 minutes the volcanic stone began to buff away the dead skin of corns and calluses that had bothered me for years. Best of all, one particularly painful corn on my little toe, which I had to have cut off at least once a year, was gradually being buffed away. It was as if I had grown a new pair of feet. Athlete's Foot, Unpleasant Odora The third and final step of this doctor's treatment is a medicated cream designed to correct athlete's foot, prevent sweating and remove unpleasant foot odors. It contains a tested drug which is now being used in hospitals to help combat fungi, dangerous bacteria and relieve skin rashes. As the doctor rubbed this cream into my skin, I felt a cooling sensation. Itching between the toes disappeared. A special combination of natural oils helped lubricate the entire skin surface, leaving a smoothing, protective, invisible film to help guard against reinfection of the area. "Even though we have gotten such wonderful results from just one application," said the doctor, "you must remember that the secret of pain-free, odor-free feet is constant care and attention. Your shoes must be fitted correctly and your feet must receive the proper hygiene. That's why you'll find that if you use this simple medicated method twice a week after work, your feet will not only continue their remarkable improvement but will feel healthy, rested and cool, even after your toughest working day." Nothing Eke Like It If you suffer from tired, aching feet due to foot fatigue, you can now rinse away those aches and pains with nature's own medicated minerals. You can even aid painful, stubborn corns and calluses without "razor blade surgery," and if your feet are cracked, itching, sore from fungus infections... perspire excessively ... give off unpleasant odors... you can relieve these conditions practically overnight!
