Canker Sores (Mouth Ulcers)
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND
A small painful ulcer usually in the mouth is called a canker sore. It has a grayish-white base surrounded by a red inflamed area.
Golden seal, taken internally and applied topically, is very effective at healing canker sores. A drop of Tei Fu oil or Tea tree oil, applied topically to the sore, will relieve the pain within minutes.
L-lysine is an amino acid that helps prevent canker sores.
Where canker sores are frequent and severe, VS-C taken regularly will help to prevent them.
