3. Is TheraSalt good to use when you get canker sores (Aphthous Ulcers)?
Yes. The cause of canker sores is basically unknown, but many things such as stress seem to trigger them. Rinsing with TheraSalt has been very effective with my patients in reducing the frequency and severity of lesions.

4. Can TheraSalt be applied to cold sores or fever blisters
(Herpes Labialis, Type I)?

Yes. Fever blisters are caused by viruses and are contagious, while canker sores are not. These “herpes” lesions tend to arise when the natural defenses of the body, the immune system, is weakened. This happens during stress, injuries, etc. Rinsing with TheraSalt has helped certain lesions in the mouth, but many lesions are on the outside part of the lips. I have had great success treating these lesions at the early stage…when the tingling sensation begins. Placing ice on the lesion while it still is in the tingling stage has in many instances kept the lesion from ever forming. This, in my opinion, is the best treatment for external oral herpes lesions. Many antiviral drugs exist but should only be used in severe cases.

5. Should TheraSalt be used for diabetics?
Yes. Diabetics are more susceptible to oral disease for many reasons. Diabetics heal slower, are immune compromised and take many medications that reduce the effectiveness of saliva.

6. Is TheraSalt safe for pregnant patients?
Yes. Contrary to many rinses, including “natural” rinses out there, TheraSalt has no ingredients that are known to have a negative effect on pregnancy. As a matter of fact, one of the reasons I developed TheraSalt was because I could not find a natural mouthwash that did not have some herb in it that was not recommended during pregnancy. TheraSalt is great for pregnant woman who often suffer from bleeding and swollen gums.

7. Is there any alcohol in TheraSalt?
No. TheraSalt was specifically designed without alcohol for many reasons. Alcohol is a drying agent, and can cause sloughing of tissue. The National Cancer Institute in conjunction with National Center for Health statistics, California State Department of Health, Emory University of Southern California and New Jersey Department of Health released the results of a study in the Cancer Research Journal, June 1, 1991. Their results document the line between alcohol in mouth rinse and oral cancer. Chronic use of alcohol and tobacco increases the risk of developing cancer of the mouth. It has been reported that 76% to 80% of all oral cancers appear to be induced by alcohol and tobacco. There is no good reason to have alcohol in a mouthwash, in my opinion.

9. Is TheraSalt only for Therapeutic use only?
No. TheraSalt can be used in a Therapeutic dosage, which is two tablets per ounce of water, or as a maintenance dosage at 1 tablet per 2 oz. of water. In most cases the maintenance dosage is all that is necessary. Some severe cases may warrant the use of 2 tablets rather than one for the first week, then switching over to the maintenance dose.

10. Can TheraSalt be used with an oral irrigation device?
Yes. TheraSalt tablets are a great adjunct to such devices as the Water Pic. It is important to run a clean load of water after using anything other than water in these devices to avoid corrupting them. A mild dose such as 4 tablets per container will suffice to aid in the efficacy of an oral irrigator.
