Natural Remedies for Canker Sores

Canker sores, also called stomatitis, are painful sores of the inside of the mouth, inside of lips, gums and even on the tongue. The pain can be raw, sharp, burning or a combination of them all. This can alter the taste, smell and breath. Canker sores are a sign of digestive disturbances. Causes are unknown from a medical viewpoint. Topical pain relievers are often used along with steroids. These may be toxic.

The first thing to do for canker sores is to use digestives (herbs, cell salts, or homeopathic remedies) which help digestion as well as calm the nervous system. An herbal “bitters” formula can often stimulate better digestion too so cankers will go away. Canker sores are not a single symptom, but specific for each individual. Use a combination of the following remedies for symptomatic relief then find the underlying individual’s weaknesses.

Helping digestion will help cankers disappear, but Lysine, an amino acid (a protein component), taken on a daily basis helps prevent and get rid of canker sores.Painful sores on the tongue have been shown to be relieved with 2,000 to 6,000mg of Lysine per day.

 

Herbs for Canker Sores

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a combination of a capsule of each Fenugreek, Chamomile, and Slippery elm before each meal will aid digestion.

In the mouth or on the lips:

Arnica tincture (10 drops in 8 ounces of water), gargle and spit out relieves pain very effectively.

Natural Shingles Relief Remedies

Shingles comes from a viral disease in the chicken pox family, also called herpes zoster. It affects the nerves and follows nerve pathways commonly in the abdominal or face areas. Sores can be painful and may blister and pop. Later the nerve pains may persist.

It is proposed that shingles may be brought on by stress. Shingles are commonly found in older people, which suggests that there may be nutritional deficiencies.

Modern medicine treats it using anti-viral medications which may take up to several days for relief, and remember, all drugs have some kind of side effects.

From the natural perspective, we see it as nerve stress from immune weakness. It is usually easy to deal with using natural things. First, reduce your stress, and remember to stay away from tobacco, alcohol, coffee and soda pop.

Topically, you can use Dr. Christopher’s Cayenne Ointment. It may seem hot, but stops the pain. Lysine cream helps in getting rid of the virus and soothes the skin.
