Episode 157 – Why vitamins and minerals are essential for your health
Question of the day for the #AskEvro show: “how do I remove mouth boils?”
Someone asked me this question during my #AskEvro show live tour through a few gyms in Metro Manila.
My first reactive internal monologue was something of this nature, “I’m not a doctor and I’m not a bloody sexual health specialist…I’m a Dietitian.”
Then, I took a breath, composed myself and thought for second on how I could actually help this person.
“To be honest, I don’t know what a mouth boil is doing in your mouth.” I replied.
“But a few things come to mind.
The first thing you should do is get a proper diagnosis.
1. Because this might be something you just diagnosed yourself and it might be inaccurate or cause for unnecessary stress.
So first and foremost go and see your medical doctor.
It might be as simple as one of these possibilities:
– you could of bit your tongue while you were sleeping and now it’s irritated
– if could be something different altogether
But…the only thing you can do to be sure is to get a good assessment from your doctor and then progress from there.
Read on below.
Secondly, is simple nutrition fundamentals
You might be looking at the problem but perhaps you missed the root cause of the issue.
So, look to get more vitamins and minerals in your body as you simply may be nutrient or vitamin deficient.
How can you overcome nutrient deficiency?
Start eating more fruits and vegetables in your diet and maybe even take a multivitamin. You could be running on empty and need a good dose of healthy goodness.
Aim for a minimum of 2 fruit serves per day and 5+ vegetable serves per day – everyday. Hit those targets and you can start to rule out nutrition deficiency as a possible cause your “mouth boils”
