Mouth ulcers are in most cases harmless and heal in just a few days but continued attacks are a good indicator of being run down.
To help the healing process along and to minimise repeat attacks do the following:
- Eat a diet rich in red and yellow vegetables, whole grains and cereals, non-citrus fruit, lean meat and seafood.
- Undertake moderate exercise, get out and get some fresh air and make sure you're sleeping well
- Reduce stress through natural therapies and activities such as yoga or meditation
Whilst suffering from mouth ulcers, spicy foods and any food known to cause problems, such as acidic fruit, should be avoided.
