Bad Breath Remedies: How to Get Rid of Bad Breath

peterhutch asked:

 

Store shelves are overflowing with mints, mouthwashes and other products designed to help people combat and prevent bad breath. Yet these products help control bad breath (halitosis) only temporarily.

Certain foods, health conditions and habits are among the causes of bad breath. In many cases, you can improve bad breath with proper dental hygiene. But, if simple self-care techniques don’t solve the problem, you may want to see your dentist to be sure a more serious condition isn’t causing your bad breath.

The Problem of Bad Breath

Bad breath happens when the bacteria inside the mouth, at the back of the tongue and the areas between the teeth develop. Failure to maintain a good oral hygiene allows the bacteria to grow and cause the problem.

Avocado (Persea Americana)

Another effective remedy for bad breath is avocado, which is far superior to any mouth lotion or remedies for this condition. It effectively removes intestinal putrefaction or decomposition which is one of the most important causes of bad breath.

Guava

Unripe guava is good to use in halitosis. It is rich in tannic, malic, oxalic, and phosphoric acids as well as calcium, oxalate, and manganese. Chewing it is an excellent tonic for the teeth and gums. It helps cure bleeding from gums and stops bad breath. Chewing tender leaves of guava tree also stops bleeding from gums and bad breath.

Run a strand of unflavored white dental floss between your upper and lower back molars. Take a look at the floss. Is it red or brown? Wait about 45 seconds and smell the floss. If it has an objectionable odor, you probably have bad breath.

Hold the tip of your tongue with a clean washcloth and rub the back of your tongue with a clean white washcloth. Again, wait 45 seconds and smell the cloth. If it has an offensive odor, your breath does too.

Brush your teeth twice a day.

Drink atleast 10 glass of water daily.

Gently clean the top of your tongue with the toothbrush.

Take health juices and eat raw vegetables as all fruit and vegetable juices are beneficial in the treatment of halitosis.

Drink plenty of water

The highest cause of bad breath, next to not taking care of your teeth is a dry mouth. If you are not drinking enough water, chances are that your bad

Breath is due to the lack of adequate moisture in your mouth. It is important to drink lots of water for many reasons, and bad breath is just

Floss thoroughly

When flossing, take the time to go back and forth on the inner sides of your teeth to remove all of the plaque and food that might be there. The idea is to clean your teeth where your tooth brush can’t. Wash off your floss or use a clean section of floss before moving onto the next tooth. It is important to floss regularly during the day. If at all possible, floss after meals so food doesn?t get a chance to develop nasty odors while lodged in between your teeth.

Basic Guide To Fighting Bad Breath

Paul Hata asked:

Many human beings have bad breath now and again. It is a constant or recurring case of bad breath that can offend friends and loved ones and become a real social problem. There are several causes of bad breath and, fortunately, most of them are easily dealt with using simple natural techniques.

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.

Whatever the cause of your bad breath be the most common remedy i.e. mouthwashes is not only ineffective, it is counterproductive also. A mouthwash is a blend of flavors, a bit of dye, and too much alcohol.

While the claims that mouthwashes kill the bacteria is true, it is also true that the bacteria quickly come back again and in greater force than before one would have used the mouthwash. But in addition to being ineffective, mouthwashes are also being dangerous.

Too much mouthwash is irritating to the gums, the palate, the tongue, and the mucous membranes of the mouth. In a small percentage of people, who are susceptible, and those who smoke and drink, heavy use of mouthwash can cause certain types of cancer.

Other ways to fight bad breath

If one does not wish to use anything in order to freshen up the breath, one can put a few drops of peppermint oil in a glass of water and rinse. Bad breath, or halitosis, has a number of causes, the most obvious one being bad dental hygiene.

If one doesn’t brush your teeth regularly and well, bits of pieces of food will become lodged between your teeth and will decompose, causing a bad odor. One probably already knows that you should brush your teeth carefully twice a day, but there are some other measures you can take to fight bad breath.

Conclusion

Brushing the tongue is probably the single most effective thing you can do. In various researches, it has been shown that brushing the tongue alone is a better guard against bad breath than brushing only the teeth.

Brushing both the teeth and tongue can help reduce bad breath due to poor dental hygiene almost entirely. One does not need to scrub your tongue. Just gently brush the tongue with a soft-bristled brush to wash away the microscopic bits of food that become trapped in the tiny protuberances.

Bad Breath, Halitosis And Home Remedies

Pieternel Van Giersbergen asked:

When the Webmaster of www.breathbadgone.com asked me to write an article on halitosis (bad breath) I was thrilled. Strange, you say, that I should be enthused about the subject of halitosis (bad breath)? As an RN for over 25 years I have smelled many, many kinds of breath/ halitosis, and found that breath is a wonderful diagnostic tool. It can tell me how sick the patient is, and sometimes even what they have. I once worked with a wonderful doctor in the emergency room, who asked me what I smelled in the breath of a particular patient. We both felt we smelled a candida/yeast infection, and sure enough, that’s just what it turned out to be! Bad breath/ halitosis is always a sign that something else is going on, and i’d like to share with you a few interesting cases and general principles in this regard.

I have a friend who is a sensitive person. We were sitting at a table and I asked him how his day was. He said OK, but his breath was bad and his stomach seemed upset. After I asked a few more questions he finally let on he that he’d had an argument with his employer. As he was telling his story he drank the big glass of water I had given him. And as soon as he’d unburdened his feelings and the water was gone… so was his bad breath/ halitosis. The moral of this story… dehydration and emotional issues can both affect our breath.

Many patients who come to the emergency room have bad breath. Simply giving them fluids (water or salt water intravenously) not only helps their primary condition, but the bad breath as well. You don’t have to be in the Sahara desert to get dehydrated. Everyone needs to drink abundant water each day.

Small babies do not have bad breath/ halitosis when they are healthy. Bad breath (halitosis) is a sign that something is wrong and needs attention. Healthy toddlers don’t have bad breath either, so when babies, toddlers or growing children develop bad breath, the following factors usually play a role: dehydration, stress, wrong foods, bad digestion and poor dental health.

Indeed, these are the same top causes of bad breath in adults, followed by digestive problems and infections, for which one should seek medical help. A great remedy for infections of all kinds, whether viral/ bacterial/ parasite and candida, or yeast, is Oil of Oregano. Oil of Oregano is an all-natural remedy that is as strong as pharmaceutical antibiotics, but with no side effects. It is also a great first aid remedy to have on hand.

I could go on and on about the distinct varieties of bad breath smells among those who drink alcohol, who smoke, who have diabetes, internal bleeding, liver diseases, or cancer. But I will spare you the unsavory details. The point is to focus on clean breath, and to heal the underlying causes of bad breath, which will give you better health and more enjoyment of your life. By welcoming bad breath/ halitosis as an opportunity to take preventive measures, you will be doing yourself a world of good.

May your breath be sweet!

Bad Breath Home Remedies That Work

Kelvin Ho asked:

Bad breath can be a big problem for many people and many will be too embarrassed to visit their doctor over a problem like this. Fortunately there are some natural home remedies that you can use to help with your bad breath. In this article we will cover some of those remedies that may be able to help solve your bad breath problem.

1. Mint leaves are a great natural way to help freshen up the breath. By chewing mint leaves, particularly after meals, is a very good remedy for bad breath.

2. Most people will brush their teeth just once a day even though it is recommended to brush both morning and night. If you have a bad breath problem then it is advisable to brush your teeth after every meal to help reduce and possibly prevent bad breath.

3. When brushing your teeth after each meal you may want to brush your tongue also. Many toothbrushes now come with a tongue brush on the back and this is a great idea for people with bad breath. As bad breath is caused by the build up of bacteria on the tongue, then brushing your tongue after each meal will keep the bacteria at bay and reduce bad breath.

4. Another good way to keep your tongue bacteria free is to use a gargle of baking soda dissolved in warm water. This is a very natural remedy and completely safe and is great at keeping your tongue clean.

5. Sunflower seeds are another good natural remedy and are particularly good if you chew some after each meal followed by a glass of water.

6. Cloves are a good bad breath remedy but not everyone will like the taste of cloves, if you do though then go ahead and chew one clove after each meal to reduce your bad breath.

7. Pineapple juice is great to reduce the smell of bad breath as is parsley.

8. Tea made from fenugreek seeds is a good bad breath remedy.

These are some remedies for reducing the smell of bad breath and helping keep bad breath at bay. Below are some remedies that are good for eliminating bad breath altogether.

1. Drinking hot unsweetened tea daily is a good natural remedy for curing bad breath.

2. Yoghurt is an incredibly effective way to cure bad breath completely as it contains the good bacteria that your body needs. Eat yoghurt daily for six to seven weeks for best results.

3. Squeezing lemons into water and using as a gargle is also a good natural remedy. You need to use the gargle frequently and continue to do so until all traces of bad breath have gone. It is not a bad idea to continue the gargle occasionally just to keep bad breath away.

4. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Apples are a great source of good health and are particularly good for curing bad breath as they act as a purifier for the mouth and remove the bacteria that cause bad breath.

5. Foods that are rich in zinc help to prevent bad breath occurring as they help to keep bacteria under control.

If your bad breath continues after using natural remedies then it may be time to visit your doctor and make sure there are no underlying causes that may be causing your bad breath.

Natural remedies do work very well for bad breath problems though and in many cases they will be all you need. Good luck and may you have sweet smelling breath for a long time to come.

Finding the Right Bad Breath Remedy

RAYMOND NWAMBUONWO asked:

What is more embarrassing in life than having bad breath? The sufferers are always on the lookout for the one bad breath solution that can cure them and make things immediately better for them, but bad breath remedies are not easy to find.

Since you are on the lookout for the perfecf solution that can work for you, the best place to start is definitely the doctor. Your doctor will give you more information on what type of remedy is best for you, and also give much more solid advice than anybody else out there because they know the inn’s and outs of your body better than anybody else.

Here is a remedy or two for your own personal use. Whether or not they work for you, is really up to you, but it is important to make sure that you are doing everything you can to find the right bad breath remedy for yourself, to make sure that you’re able to have close encounters with people in a comfortable way.

First tip drink more water! Usually the number one cause of bad breath, outside of neglecting to properly brush and floss teeth is a dry mouth. If you do not drink adequate water, chances are that your stinking breath is due to the lack of moisture in your mouth, so be sure to check that out. It is very important to drink enough water for many reasons but stink breath is only one of them.

If you can not appreciate lifting a glass of water to your lips, try eating more fruit. Most fruits are packed with water and a good way to get extra water in the body. Eating lots of fruits is also a good way of altering your diet to cure your bad breath as well, which leads to another remedy.

Alter the way you eat. Consuming too much meat and very little fresh fruits and vegetables, could be part of the factors to blame for your bad breath. Try eating more fresh food and less protein is a great bad breath remedy that really works for many people, particularly those who already brush and floss on a regular basis and do not seem to have a problem drinking enough water or getting enough moisture into the body.

Get off the steak bandwagon and have a salad instead. It is a bad breath solution, and one that works. Please just try it and see. It is much easier to cure than you think.
