Natural solutions for mouth ulcers

Clair Whitty - Naturally Healthy

Mouth Ulcers can be extremely painful. Anyone at any age can get them. They can be as a result of a weak immune system, stress, or an inadequate diet - in particular a diet that is high in acid forming foods, but also a diet that simply lacks nutrition, especially B Vitamins and Zinc.

Natural treatment remedies include applying a tincture of Myrrh to the ulcer to relieve pain. Rinsing the mouth with salt and water, or gargling with sage tea or sage herbal tincture will provide some relief. Homeopathic remedies are useful too - New Vistas' Mouth Ulcer remedy is a remedy that I recommend a lot, both to treat and to prevent recurrence.

What you really want to do is to prevent getting them in the first place. You must start by looking at your diet. Ask yourself what the probable cause is? Stress, diet, weakened immune system. Also consider what food group might be in excess or deficient in your diet?

One client kept getting mouth ulcers. In this case the diet was particularly bad, mostly bread, pies, pasta, biscuits, crisps, chicken, cheese and cereals - the sugary ones! He ate no fish, no brown bread- only white - no vegetables, no fruit. His diet was disastrous. The sad thing was, he had no intention of changing his diet.

I suggested Terra Nova Life because this supplement provides a powerhouse of nutrition in one formula. It includes fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, alkalising foods, protein, and essential fatty acids. It also provides digestive support; probiotics and digestive enzymes, with mushrooms to support the immune system. It's a powder that you mix with fruit juice or water.

The client would take only one supplement, so this is perfect for him. It will provide the nutrients he's lacking, support his immune and digestive system, and reduce acidity. Mouth ulcers are extremely painful. It's worth the effort to find a solution. Your local health store is a good place to start.

If your diet is similar this remedy might help you.
