How removing foot calluses rebalanced my hips

I have a recurring problem with plantar warts. A dermatologist provided a regimen which included, among other things, daily soaks in the hottest water tolerable followed by using a callus shaver. In following doctor’s orders I had soft baby-like feet! An interesting thing happened. My hip alignment changed. Without the calluses creating bias my hips above were finding a new seating! First it was noticeable, even painful, when I walked but asana helped to rebalance the alignment along with strengthening. I have to admit, my feet are callused again. I live at the beach and am a notorious bare-footer. But the lesson of how whichever part of the body is on the ground as the basis for alignment has not been forgotten!
