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

Canker sores can be caused from eating too much acidic foods and sugar. Acidic foods can be vinegars, alcohol and wine. Sometimes canker sores are a sign of candida overgrowth or an imbalance in mouth bacteria. Some people find simple using plain yogurt helps with canker sores. Let the yogurt sit in the mouth for a bit before swallowing. Also opening a probiotic, of acidophilius and letting it sit right on the canker it may help. Zinc has also been known to help those with canker sores. Some homeopathic remedies are quite helpful for outbreaks of canker sores such as the remedy borax, mercurius, kali mur, nit ac and nat mur. Keep in mind homeopathy is tailor suited to the individual and what suits one doesn't suit the other.
