Introduction: With increasing diabetic poppulation, diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are also rising parallelly. Limb salvaging methods and lifesaving methods have been focused on getting rid of it till date. Main Clinical Findings: This case refers to a wonder drug Thumari and its role in enhancing wound healing in a case of DFU of a 68-year-old female. Outcome and Conclusion: Complete wound healing was achieved in 60 days with unit healing time of 12.79 days/cm3. Local cleaning by Triphala Kwatha has shown antimicrobial effects which augmented the healing process, while Thumari Taila application enhanced tissue debridement. Internal Ayurveda medications such as Pippali (Piper longum Linn.), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula Linn.), and Sanjivani Vati (polyherbomineral medication) with Pathya-Apathya (prescribed diet and regimen) pacified vitiated Kapha-Vata Pradhana Tridosha and enhanced tissue rejuvenation and repair by their pharmacological properties.
