HOME REMEDIES FOR MOUTH ULCERS PART-1

HOME REMEDIES FOR MOUTH ULCERS
                              
Eat plenty of salad with raw onions. Onions contain sulfur and have healing properties.
 
Diet should include yogurt and other soured products, such as cottage cheese, and buttermilk. 
 
Prepare a solution by adding 2 oz hydrogen peroxide, 2 oz water, and 1 tsp each of salt and baking soda. Rinse the mouth with this solution. Do not swallow. One of the useful home remedies for mouth ulcers.
 
Rinse your mouth with milk of magnesia to coat sores.
 
Orange juice is helpful in preventing the canker sores of the mouth. Drink it up in 2 or 3 days it will go away. Lack of vitamin C causes them. You can also take Vitamin C pills if you don't want to drink all that orange juice.
 
Cover the ulcer with a wet tea bag; the tannin will help dry up the sore.
 
Mix Sodium bicarbonate powder with water. It is a very effective first aid remedy. This mixture can be used as a mouth rinse as well as swallowed to help make the body more alkaline. This is one of the important home remedies for mouth ulcers.
 
Use a toothpaste containing sodium bicarbonate instead of the standard toothpastes high in fluoride and other chemicals.
 
Antacids can soothe canker sores by reducing the acidity in your mouth that can irritate them. Combine equal parts of the liquid form of Kaopectate or Milk of Magnesia (both antacids) with Benylin or Benadryl (both mild anesthetics). Apply the mixture to the canker sore with a cotton swab. You'll cut down on painful acidity in your mouth and numb the sore too.
 
Try stress-relieving acupressure exercises. Avoid constant stress. Take time to exercise, sleep and relax.
