  1. I'm really sorry this posted more than once. I wasn't aware that happened and I don't know what I did. Yes I try to get my 55 ounces most days. (I way 110 lbs) even when I do I wake up very dry. I have chronic nasal congestion and post nasal drip and I have tried nose sprays, neti pot, sinus rinse, and other decongesting herbal formulas and OTC medicine, which by the way dry you up. Nothing works. I haven't done a sleep study yet and am considering it, however I don't have any symptoms of sleep apnea. But thanks for the suggestions. I did some searching online and found several home remedies that I'll try and others might be interested in. Namely, increasing fluid intake, cayenne pepper, fennel seeds, slippery elm, oil pulling, aloe Vera, lemon, and grape seed oil. Last night I put some lemon slices in water and sipped it during the night. It helped better than plain water. For canker sores these remedies were given, honey, coriander, licorice root, moist tea bag, aloe vera, tea tree oil, baking soda, peroxide, sage, fresh onion, and cayenne pepper. I am swishing aloe Vera and also baking soda and peroxide. I also found a DGL powder that I might try. It's also good for ulcers, acid reflux and other digestive issues. Maybe after a month of Whole 30 all these problems will clear up. Wouldn't that be great?! Thank you your time.
  2. 1. I have a very dry mouth usually only night and a sip of water doesn't help much. I don't take any mess and I usually drink enough water during the day (some days maybe a cup or so less). I don't take any meds; it's because I breathe through my mouth when I'm sleeping. My dry mouth spray has xylitol, eek! Which I just discovered and has set me back 4 days. Any suggestions for a replacement during the night when water doesn't help? Sometimes my mouth is all stuck together and it's hard to open it literally. 2. I have had chronic canker sores for years and only treatment that has helped is DGL Ultra (deglycyrrhizinated licorice) taken at the first sign. Usually they go away. It has lots of no-nos (sugar alcohols, starches). I have 3 sores now but no treatment. They are painful and the anathestic gels also have non-compliant ingredients. No one know what causes them; I hope doing Whole30 will help. Does anyone have any compliant treatments for canker sores? i await your reply with "baited breath"
