Good-health News! Canker sore Rx

Woman's World - - Your Good Health -

Next time one of these shal­low, crater-like mouth sores crops up, try seal­ing it with an ad­he­sive patch con­tain­ing mag­ne­sium salts and citrus oil, (such as Canker Cover, $8.39 for six, Walmart.com). The Jour­nal of Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Sci­ences re­ports that this method helps you heal four times faster— usu­ally within one day!—than us­ing a numb­ing gel.

The truth about cran­ber­ries and UTIS

A new Yale School of Medicine study re­veals that while cran­ber­ries may help pre­vent uri­nary tract in­fec­tions for some folks— by keep­ing trou­ble­mak­ing bac­te­ria from stick­ing to uri­nary tract walls—they won’t cure them. You typ­i­cally need an­tibi­otics for that.
