Diet/Food Therapy

Consume more yogurt:  
Yogurt contains active acidophilus cultures that can prevent and heal canker sores. Eat at least four tablespoons of yogurt daily to prevent outbreaks. To heal an outbreak, eat at least one eight-ounce container a day.

Avoid foods you are allergic or sensitive to:  
Food sensitivities or allergies can make mouth ulcers worse. Many canker sores are the result of gluten intolerance. Avoid coffee, spices, citrus fruits, and other foods that may irritate your mouth. If you suffer from recurrent mouth ulcers, you should discuss the diagnosis and treatment of food sensitivities with a nutritionally oriented doctor. For some people, treating allergies may be a key component to restoring health.

Take Foods Rich in B-Vitamins:  
Eat green, leafy vegetables and whole grains, These foods are rich in B complex vitamins, which help the body deal with stress, a common trigger in the development of canker sores. Nutritional yeast can supply B vitamins. It is available in health food stores in the form of flakes, which can be added to cereal or salads, or stirred into liquids. Nutritional yeast also comes in the form of a paste which can be spread on bread.
