Natural Cures for Cracked Corners of the Mouth
Suffering with cracked corners of your mouth?
1. Check your water intake
Are you drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day?
2. B vitamin deficiency (B2, B3, B12)
A deficiency of B Vitamins is characterized by cracking of the lips and corners of the mouth. Riboflavin is also know as Vitamin B2.
To increase riboflavin add Nutritional Yeast to your diet. Try 1 Tbs Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast added to your green smoothie or sprinkled on cooked vegetables every day.
Consider a high quality B Complex like food-form Super B.
If you have the genetic variant (MTHFR) you will want a different form of B Vitamins like Active B Complex by Klaire (15% off here).
Consume a wide variety of vegetables, greens, seeds and nuts as well as quality animal protein.
B12 sources include liver, fish, and red meat. Activated B12-Guard by Perque has a good B12 supplement.
3. Add 1 Tbs Carlson cod liver oil daily
4. Eat quality animal protein
and make sure that you are getting enough iron and zinc.
Two to three times a day, consume protein like wild caught salmon, free range chicken and eggs, and pasture-raised meat.
4. Topical Oils
Topically you can apply raw unprocessed coconut oil and alternatively, Vitamin E oil (try Unique E Tocopherols) applied to the corners of the mouth can help soothe.
5. Digestive Weakness
When the digestion system is not healthy, nutrients aren’t absorbed properly. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet is the first step in healing the gut.
The first four steps will be things you can easily do.
Pick up a copy of my book, The Reclaim Diet. This will guide you through implementing a healing, read-food way of eating.
