Preventing Mouth Ulcers with Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste

I have two new experiments going on right now.

The first one is switching to a toothpaste without sodium lauryl sulfate to see whether it prevents mouth ulcers. I've had mouth ulcers since I was a child, and while not a terrible health hazard, they're definitely uncomfortable. One appears perhaps once every month or so, though it varies a lot. Sometimes I'll go for months with zero ulcers, and other times another one appears just as one has healed. I chose a tea tree oil toothpaste because it looked very convincing and tea tree oil is said to have antibacterial properties.

The other experiment has to do with B vitamins. I'll go into further detail later, but I'll begin the experiment by taking supplements that provide me with about twice the Recommended Dietary Allowance. I want to find out whether taking more than is officially suggested results in any positive or negative changes.
