Home Remedies for Bad Breath, Bad Breath Causes

peterhutch asked:

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is a very common temporary condition caused by such things as oral dryness, stress, hunger (ketosis), eating certain foods such as garlic and onions, smoking, or poor oral hygiene.

Many people have bouts of bad breath has explained by the effects of strong smelling food and drink. Bad breath can be a sign of a health problem such as gum disease, tooth decay, or diabetes.

Bad Breath Causes

Almost everything we put into our mouth, particulary food and drink, can make it smell less pleasant. For the majority of people, the most frequent cause of bad breath is associated with bacteria that live in the mouth, particularly on the tongue. This bacteria can build-up as a result of poor oral hygiene and a lack of flossing.

Brush your tongue when you brush your teeth and after meals too. The tongue is like a lint catcher and it has to be cleaned off every so often to get that nice aroma to come through.

Wash the tongue with baking soda dissolved in warm water to reduce the acidity in your mouth making a less-friendly environment for the bacteria to grow.

Parsley, coriander, basil, rosemary, thyme, wintergreen, cardamom seeds, cinnamon bark, clove, fennel or anise seeds are great breath fresheners. Slowly chew any of these herbs and allow the saliva to build up in your mouth.

Chew peppermint or carnation for better breath smell.

This remedy is one of the good home remedy for bad breath using coffee : Grind the fresh beans with few cardamom seeds and make into a reviving cup to be drunk without milk first thing in the morning (but avoid if you also have a hangover). This will help in curing bad breath.

Cloves are a strong antiseptic. Make a tea by putting 3 whole or 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves in 2 cups of hot water, and steep for 20 minutes, stirring infrequently. Pour through a well strainer and use as a mouthwash or gargle two times in a day. This is one of the good Home Remedy for Bad Breath.

Use a tongue scraper, which helps to remove dead cells, food particles and bacteria from the tongue. A tongue scaper is a special plastic instrument found in drug stores and some health food stores, that costs several dollars. In Ayurveda, a thick coating on the tongue is called “ama” and is thought to be caused by improper or incomplete digestion. Tongue cleaning with a scaper is recommended as a daily regimen to remove ama. The key is to do it gently and to rinse your mouth thoroughly afterward. If you can’t find a tongue scraper, use a toothbrush to clean your tongue

Rinse your mouth before sleeping with a glass of water with the juice of half a lemon added.

Bad Breath Treatment With Natural Herbs

Paul Hata asked:

Many rumors circulate from time to time about the cause of chronic bad breath, or halitosis. One can almost rule out the theory of bad breath coming from places other than the mouth. The esophagus is collapsed normally and air can only escape in the form of the occasional burp. If your mouth and teeth are healthy you should first check the dorsum, or that area on the back of the tongue

More than 20 million people are suffering from bad breath (chronic halitosis in medical terms). In most of the cases it starts due to problems in gums and tongue. Bacteria causes odour in the mouth and this occurred from the decomposed food particles and other debris in ones mouth and poor oral hygiene. The decay and debris create a sulphur compound, which causes an obnoxious odour.

Herbal cure of bad breath

Bad breath herbal remedy is prescribed by a number of doctors all over the world. Chronic halitosis can be caused by some medical conditions such as esophageal reflux and hiatal hernia; it may come from oral sources: cavities, gum diseases, and coatings on the tongue.

The irregular surface of the tongue creates an ideal environment for bacteria to conceal and reproduce. A lot of people think that a bad breath herbal remedy is a superior, healthier form of treatment than other unnatural substances often used to treat the problem. Herbs are nature’s medicine, so our body is better prepared to accept it. Herbs come from plants, which are found in nature. There is no side effect of this treatment therapy.

Herbs dealing with this disease

Parsley not only spices up our meals but it is also a bad breath remedy. Parsley is a natural bad breath remedy used by systematically chewing on the leaves. Other herbs and spices, which we can easily get in the kitchen, can be a natural bad breath remedy as well. For the unpredicted times when we may need a bad breath remedy, we should carry a small plastic baggie of cloves, fennel, or anise seeds to chew after odorous meals.

A bad breath herb treatment made of fresh coriander is a very effective remedy for bad breath. As far as the method to make medicine from coriander is concerned, it is very easy to don it. For it we are supposed to add few ounces of fresh coriander in two cups of water and then boil it for few minutes.

After having our meals if we will drink dill tea it will refresh our breath. Making dill tea is also very easy. For it we have to mix one to two teaspoons of dill leaves or mashed seeds per cup of boiling water. Even simply chewing on a few dill seeds also freshen our breath.
