Quick and easy remidies for mouth ulcers

My todays topic is all bout mouth ulcers.This is one amoungst the most comman problem which everyone experience .There are certain things to know a bout the causes and how to prevent them what are the remidies.

Mouth or the so called oral cavity is said to be the mirror of the digestive system mainly the stomach and the interstine.
The mouth ulcers are called as stomatitis.Its a reddish small ulcer which occurs in the inner area of the mouth.They are of different varities like tromatic ulcer,Chronic ulcers,Acute,Malignant,Benign.....


Causes:-
----------
1.Troma - This means any sort of injury .this is most commanest cause .Mainly while brushing or eating and sharp and hard objects ,or mainly while consuming any meat with intact bones , somethimes it might occur by your own teeth itself..

2.Constipation - This is the main cause.Mostly the person suffering from constipation problem will have oral ulcers too.So the root cause here is to get rid of constipation which it self will act as a cure.

3.Indigestion- This is also the most comman reason .Any problem with digestion shows of in form of stomatitis.

4.Many ulcers mainly related too intestines or stomach in such a condition this can also be seen.But here that will remain for a long time.

5.In innumo compramise condition like AIDS and others.

6.Vitamin difficiancy like difficiancy of vitamin B- complex or vitamin-C.

7.Calcium difficiancy.

8.Indulgence in excessive of spicy food.

9.Reduced intake of water.

Remidies:-
---------
1.Water is a very good remidy for this problem.As it is a liquid when taken i good amount removes or washe s away the toxins,Relieves one from constipation problem.Not only this there are certain vitamins which are water soluble.Body requires adequate amount of water.Hence its really good way to prevent the onset of mouth ulcers.

2.Keep your body cool if you are of pitta prakrithi of tend to increase up the heat in your body eary.

3.


Take substances which cool your body like tender coconut water.

4.


Prepare a drink/kashaya by adding coarsely powdered coriander seeds and cumin about 1 tsp each to milk and add 1 tsp of powdered cane sugar or jaggery and boil and reduced to half .Consume this twice a day.This will help you in constipation and gastritis problem too.

5.If this problem of ulcer is due to constipation make a habbit of drinking large amount of water in a day and consume more of fibrous vegetable and fruits in your diet like leafy vegetables,oranges ,sweetlimes etc.

6.Application of honey with the help of tip of your finger to the spot where there is a ulcer daily about 3-4 times helps to get immediate relief from the pain and also cures the ulcers early.This will lead to a bit for burning sensation but then subsides after 1 mins of application.

7.


Ghee application is also beneficial like honey.

Ayurvedic remidies:-

2.Application of triphala churna mixed with honey over the small ulcers also gives good results.

3.Intake of a tablet by name-'' Khadiradhi Vati'' is really a good remidy.I always make it a point to have a strip of this tablet in my purse.This also helps in dry cough and bad breath.

Asha,
You can drink water anytime of your workout. There is no thumb rule as such. Your body starts losing water when you sweat and you need to replenish with water. You can drink before your aerobic, during your work out and after your work out also. If you drink ice cold water, that will shrink your stomach and will make you eat little lesser than the other times. So, if you wanna eat less, then drink a glass of ice cold water 15mins before eating. After excercising you can drink a large glass of warm water with a spoon of honey mixed in it.

Hi Sowmya,

I have a doubt...why do I always have a burning sensation in my chest area whenever I take honey?...

Dr. Soumya Bhat said...

Hello,
Well honey by nature has a thikshna guna.Are you sure your honey is pure one
Is that all the time you take honey you experience this burning sensation.Try consuming milk or water in large amount when ever you take honey.This will help.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the suggestion, Dr.Sowmya. I used to take honey regularly when in India & never had this problem. I have been experiencing this problem since 2 yrs or so(ie since I left India). I have no idea how to check if the honey is pure. I buy a brand tht says pure australian honey. Let me know if U have any technique to chk its purity. I'll also try changing to some other brand of honey. Also, there are many diff types of honey avail in the stores. which would u recommend for regular consumption.

Also, it would be great if u can write an article on menstural cramps with some home remedies for it. Thanks in advance.

Dr. Soumya Bhat said...

Hi Sri,
Sorry for the delay.Was busy with other patients and in between had some health problems also.So could'nt check and update. Well what made you think i am scared? Please do reply to this.I wanna know. Regarding the remedies i shall surely give.Im doing a service to give my best to the needy and help others i'm not here for some income.
Comming to the remedies-
1] Heating honey is considered as virudha and acts like visha which does'nt mean its poisonous.It changes its properties when you heat .Hence the re will be a reverce action in the bodu .According to ayurveda its considered ad virudha.

2] Adding milk and honey causes no problem.I hope you have asked adding honey and banana to honey.As its not clear in your post if its wrong the question is something different please do correct me.

3]Regarding your burning urine problem.Well as you have said you are ready to change your diet according to your body? well i dont know what kind of body constitution is yours?
can adivise on it only when you tell me in detail.
First make a habbit of drinking large amount of water every now and then.this will help to dilute the concentration of your urine and help in washing away the toxins out of your body.
2.Take 1/2 a glass of milk to it add 3/4 glass of cold water and kallu sakkare that is cane sugar and mix and if required add 1-2 cubes of ice and drink it every now and then.
3.there is avariety of thulasi called Kallu thulasi that is purple variety of thulsi.Make a decoction out of it by adding 2 galss and reducing to 1/2 glass add cane sugar or jaggery to itand drink in empty stoomach when ever you have burning micturation.
4.Fry 2 tsp of cumin and Coriander seeds each in 1 tsp of ghee untill it stops to splutter.Then crush it to form a coarse powder add a glass of milk or even water will do.then prepare a drink in the same manner as tea.Add 1/2 tsp sugar and a drop of ghee stir and drink it daily.this will keep your body cool and is definately a good medicine for your problem as well as gastritis.

5.Even freshly prepared dark grape juice is a good medicine for burning micturation.

6.Try getting cucumber seeds or else cucumber will also do.remove the outer skin and prepare juice by adding cold water and cane sugar and drink 4 times a day.

Try these and tell me if you need more.

Dr. Soumya Bhat said...

Hi there,
this is regarding oil used for oil pulling.I had published the comment but cant find it.Well here again i wanna say.Normally oil which can be used is coconut oil.In case of oral diseases or bad breath neem oil is the best choice.If its to maintain good helath then Coconut oil is really good.til oil can also be used.As its a bit thicker when compared to others it becomes a bit difficult.Henge coconut oil is best .

Hello Soumya,
I am Raje 34 years old with two kids last few years I have periods getting delayed- like it takes 60 days to more. My BP is normal, no thyriod problem and no cholestrol. Is this due to my body weight as my present body weight is 75 even though I have nonveg very rarely or is it due to mental stress. Please advice me. Thankyou.

Hi Soumya,

The blog was very usefull. Planning to look at your suggestion of having milk twice a day.

I am one of the person who alway have ongoing 2 to 3 mouth ulcers. One thing I noticed that some how when I was pregnant, the mouth ulcer issue had disapeared. It started recurring post delivery. Would it be some medecines prescribed to me during pregnancy subsidising the mouth ulcer issue. Please advice. (My age is 33)

Ayurveda never allow to drink chilled water then why you are suggesting cold water before breakfast?

Watch this video : rajiv dixit on cold waterhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uY35ArFiQ6A
