Natural remedies for canker sores

Canker sores can appear on the tongue, gums or mouth area. They can be quite painful. The causes vary. Some old books, such as the Cottage Physician from 1892, states that chronic canker sores may be related to mercury toxicity. They recommend a decoction of gentian. In our modern clinic, we attribute the cause to eating too many acid foods like citrus, tomato, pineapples, vinegar, alcohol or food allergies. Candida can also trigger mouth ulcers and canker sores

Treatments include:

  • opening and probiotic capsule and putting the powder directly onto the canker sores
  • taking a zinc supplement
  • using homeopathic remedies such as borax, mercurius or arnica
