Well coldsores are a real pain aren’t they!
Painful, sore and not all that nice to look at either…
So what can be done about them and why do you get them?
Coldsores (from the herpes virus) are an excess of sodium in the body that bursts out in weak pionts in your body, usually around the mouth.
Basically this means that your body is not coping well with seasonal changes, excess toxins that are in your body and stress.
Stop eating SALT! Especially any kind of table salt that you will find in take away sandwiches, processed cheeses & foods.
Eat a simpler diet that is full of wholesome fruits and vegetables and grains until the sore has gone.
Eating a poor diet will not speed up its recovery at all &
some people will usually get a coldsore when they have had a night on the town too which is a clear indicator that the alcohol and lack of sleep has caused the body stress so it has rebelled and posted a coldsore on you!
Keep your immune system bouyant and well!
