Saving Grace

Many of my friends know that I have been plagued with mouth ulcers for more than a year now. I've tried everything. Salt water, lysine (worked for a bit, but didn't last), prescription mouth washes, zinc, Vitamin C, you name it. My doctor, and everyone else, blame them all on stress. I have to believe that, yes, stress is a big factor. But that just couldn't be it....I'm really not stressed out! I don't walk around frazzled.....

SO. This past month it got to a breaking point. I counted sixteen ulcers two weeks ago. SIXTEEN. In my mouth. Something had to go, or my sanity would. So after Googling even more....and getting past all the "you're dying" diagnosis......I came across a blog of a lady who's story sounded like mine. Lots of ulcers, no remedies. And she had found her cure.

To make a long story short, I am now on week two of following a regimen of: 1 Pearl tablet a day (see's supposed to put the "good" bacteria back in your system that can be diminished from antiobiotics and such), taking a 1 a day mulitvitamin, and swishing twice a day with a non-alcoholic mouthwash. I feel 90 years old, but lo and behold, within a week....mouth ulcers are down to maybe one. Two if I really try to tongue around ; )

So....I don't have a huge blog following, but I thought I would at least post this just in case you 'know someone' who might suffer from these terrible, irritating creatures! (A side note: We are also mostly finished with the I was telling my hubs...I'm not sure which one to attribute the cure. Remodel finished or this routine.) I'll keep on doing this though...just to be sure.

I have seen the commercials for that but never really knew what they were for. I might suggest it to friend. Thanks for the info!
