  • What is the best remedy for mouth ulcers?

    Mouth ulcers are frequently viral, and can be painful. Also known as oral stoma, they tend to respond well to lysine. Lysine is an essential amino acid necessary for growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. It is most commonly used to prevent and help decrease the incidence of herpes simplex infection (fever blisters and cold sores). It also helps promote better concentration and allows fatty acids to be used more effectively for energy production. Take 2 caps of lysine 1500 mg twice daily for the acute oral stoma. In this setting zinc 15 mg twice daily will be helpful as well. Some also benefit from methylfolate and methylcobalamin 1 mg each, taken 2-3 times a day for the same period. Maintenance doses of lysine can continue at 1500 mg twice daily zinc 15 mg once daily and methylfolate and methylcobalamin can be ongoing as well, if you have recurrent sores, historically, and benefit from this above treatment.

  • Excessive burping with stomach pain -- what's the reason?

    The answer to this can be multifactorial. Can be a lack of stomach acid, ironically. It can be that plus an infection, such as h pylori, can be a histamine response as well. The best way to start is with a digestive enzyme- a gentle middle of the road enzyme called digestzymes by designs for health, comes to mind. If you do not find relief with this- you can take 2 caps of olive leaf extract and then follow with digestzymes (best taken with meals) Dr. Rahav READ MORE
