Nourish the yin and replenish qi to relieve canker sores
“I’ve been drinking a lot of cooling herbal tea, but I still have canker sores. What can I do?”
CheckCheckCin: Canker sore refers to lesions that develop on the soft tissues of the mouth and tongue. Body heat is often the cause of canker sores, but is not the only cause. From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, individuals who have heat and are deficient of yin, and those that have a weak qi, will also develop canker sores easily.
Individuals become heaty and deficient of yin due to fatigue, high anxiety and staying up late, and this would cause canker sore. Other accompanying symptoms are irritability, insomnia, and warm palms and foot soles. Consume an appropriate amount of ingredients that can nourish the yin and clear heat, such as, fox nut, American ginseng, snow fungus, snow pear and lily bulb. If you think drinking cooling herbal tea can help clear heat, you might be risking of damaging both the yin and yang, thus worsening the condition.
As for individuals with asthenic qi, canker sores will also recur all the time, but the pain will be milder. Accompanying symptoms include poor appetite, fatigue, shortness of breath, bloating and loose stools. Individuals need to undergo treatment to strengthen qi; consume an appropriate amount of Codonopsis Root, Astragalus root, Chinese date, potato and sweet potato.
Individuals who do not know their body condition, or the cause of canker sore, should consult registered and licensed Chinese physicians. Kindly refer to the remedy below to help relieve canker sore.
