give this a try, you will be able to reduce the number of canker sore outbreaks you experience or even eliminate them altogether.
First and foremost, eliminate refined sugar from your diet. Sugar reduces the germ-fighting capability of white blood cells so they can’t fight micro-organisms associated with canker sores effectively It's hiding in some very unlikely places including fruit juices claiming to be “all natural, canned soups, and even packaged breads. You can use raw, uncooked honey, molasses,100 percent pure maple syrup, or the herb stevia. All of these items are available in natural food stores. should consider food allergies.
But many people are surprised to learn that food allergies can be much more subtle than that, causing all sorts of seemingly unrelated health problems including canker sores.
once your food allergies have been identified, you can almost always desensitize yourself to the culprits so that they can be re-introduced into your diet. You will need the help of
a good physician trained in these sorts of procedures, though. For a referral to one in your area, contact the American Academy of Environmental Medicine or the American

There are a number of different strains of the herpes family of viruses, some of
which cause common illnesses like chicken pox, shingles, and canker sores. The amino acid arginine encourages the growth of the herpes virus, so cut back on foods high
in arginine like grains, seeds, beans, nuts, and chocolate.
try it out for a while to see if your outbreaks decrease. If they do, save your chocolate indulgences for special occasions.
there are some foods you should consider eating more of to reduce outbreaks of herpes related canker sores. Lysine is an amino acid that discourages the growth of the herpes virus, so you may want to increase your intake of lysine-rich foods like beef,
pork, chicken, fish, and most animal proteins. If you’re a vegetarian, or just prefer not to eat much meat, taking lysine supplements can also be effective.
there are several nutrients that can help. Iron, folic acid, vitamin B12, and zinc can all aid in preventing canker sores. Iron deficiency can trigger an
outbreak, so you should have your doctor check your iron levels. If they are low, I suggest daily supplementation with iron. Folic acid is an important nutrient for maintaining good
oral health in general. You can also find folic acid mouthwash products in your local health food store. Zinc stimulates the immune system by promoting
the ability of white blood cells to fight germs, like the herpes virus.
recurrent canker sore outbreaks, I suggest the following dosage guidelines (but you should talk to your personal physician to determine the best amounts for you): 30 to 60 milligrams of iron daily; 3 to 5 milligrams of folic acid daily taken along with 2,000 micrograms of vitamin B12; and 30 milligrams of zinc picolinate daily.
For periods of severe herpes-related outbreaks, I recommend 2,000 milligrams of lysine, three to four times daily taken in between meals; 500 to 600 micrograms of selenium daily; and 10 to 15 milligrams of lithium daily. (Both selenium and lithium significantly interfere with herpes virus self-reproduction.) Vitamin C should be taken as well, in approximately the same amounts as lysine. lithium is very hard to find,
Check with your local natural food store or compounding pharmacy,
For long-term prevention of canker sores, I suggest taking 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams of lysine daily in between meals, along with smaller amounts of the nutrients mentioned
above. When taking lysine, also take an equivalent amount of vitamin C.
