Obtaining Natural Canker Sore Relief - Useful Home Remedies and Treatments
Are you seeking natural canker sore relief?
Canker sores can be painful and frustrating. You might get one painful canker sore at a time, or a cluster of them, and they can make eating, swallowing, and talking painful and difficult.
Although there are quite a few remedies on the market, what are some good natural canker sore treatments?
Canker sores can be located inside the cheeks, on the tongue, or on the gums. They usually hang around for 10 to 15 days and go away on their own, but in the meantime, it helps to have some relief from them in order to heighten your overall quality of life.
Vitamin C is one way of getting canker sore relief. You can try eating foods that are rich in vitamin C, such as cantaloupe, cranberry juice, broccoli, and red bell peppers, or you can take vitamin C in supplement form, too. It might be easier taking tablets, especially if eating is painful for you. The acid in the cranberry juice might be particularly harsh on your canker sore.

A note about Obtaining Natural Canker Sore Relief - Useful Home Remedies and Treatments
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Squeezing the oil from a vitamin E capsule directly onto the canker sore might bring relief as well. Or, you can also find vitamin E gel in some natural health food stores, which can be used orally for canker sore relief.
Peroxide has many uses and gargling with peroxide could help bring relief to canker sore pain, too. Mix 3 parts water to 1 part hydrogen peroxide. This will help fight off bacteria and swishing it around in your mouth can help with the pain, as well as help speed up recovery. Just remember to spit it out afterwards and not to swallow it.
Swishing around some baking soda and water might bring canker sore relief as well. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with one cup of warm water and swish it around in your mouth. As an alternative, you can also create a baking soda-warm water paste and apply it directly to your canker sore, too. It might not taste great, but it could reduce the pain.
Another natural health treatment consists of placing a wet tea bag against your canker sore. Black tea has tannin, which is a pain-reliever as well as an astringent. Drinking teas such as chamomile tea can help soothe your inflamed mouth, and afterwards rubbing the tea bag on your canker sore might also bring extra relief, too.
In a similar fashion, applying ice to the canker sore might help. This treatment for canker sore relief can help reduce the inflammation and decrease the pain and swelling.
Although canker sores should go away on their own, if they persist after 14 or 15 days, or appear to be infected, you should pay a visit to your health care practitioner. You should also do this if they are accompanied by fever or any other symptom, as they could be a sign of something more serious.
For the most part, however, natural health remedies should offer canker sore relief and at least make eating, drinking, talking, and swallowing less painful for the duration of the canker sore.
