Like many painful health problems that seem to get in the way of enjoying life, having a canker sore is really just a symptom of an underlying problem.
If you get occasional canker sores mainly from accidentally biting your cheek, these can be easily addressed with simple solutions. However, if you get canker sores commonly, this could be pointing toward a whole body issue that would be best healed by addressing the whole body imbalance.
You certainly can apply a little HealThy Mouth Blend to the affected area for instant pain relief, help soothe stressed tissues and help balance the oral microbiome.
To really address the problem of canker sores however, you need to find the root cause. Sometimes solving that root issue is an ‘in the mouth’ strategy – like balancing your ‘oral flora’ with a great natural oral care product or like chewing more consciously to avoid injuring the cheek tissue.
Other times however, the solution may be more of a ‘whole body immune support’ strategy like addressing your overall nutrition, reducing intake of acidic foods that alter your mouth’s pH balance and oral flora, or even healing your gut – because the health of your gut flora and oral flora are connected.
