Bad Breath Remedies Makes You Kissable

Davion Wong asked:

Bad breath remedies could stop your breath from turning so bad till everyone flees from you. No one wants that to happen to us. It is not a terminal illness but can be an extremely unpleasant condition to cope with. Your breath tells a lot about you. People tend to associate bad breath with poor personal hygiene and ill health. In this article, we will look at what we can do to prevent it. We will also learn how to stop it from creating havoc in our lives using some effective bad breath remedies.

Bad Odorous Breath Prevention

We will look at some prevention measures before looking at bad breath remedies to treat our odorous breath.

1. Good Oral Hygiene

a. Good oral hygiene makes it hard for the bad breath-causing bacteria to fester. By this, we have to take good personal care of our teeth, tongue and gums. Brushing and flossing our teeth, cleaning our gums, scraping our tongue and rinsing our mouth regularly would eliminate bacteria in our mouth.

b. Go for half-yearly check ups at the dentist for thorough dental scaling and cleaning to remove plaque, tartar etc. The dentist would also mend the cavities in our teeth that are providing a place for morsels of food to be stuck. This encourages the growth of odor producing bacteria.

2. OTC and Prescribed Medications

Certain OTC and prescribed medications have been known to make your mouth dry. These medicines and drugs such as anti-anxiety drugs, diuretics and decongestants basically reduce the production of saliva. Our saliva is a bacteria suppressant and without it, bacteria can grow without restraint and cause our breath to be odorous.

3. Foods to Avoid

a. High Saturated Fat Foods

b. Meat

c. Garlic and onion

d. Spices like curry powder

e. Acidic Foods

f. Dairy Products

g. Sweet Foods

h. Caffeinated Beverages

Bad Breath Remedies

1. Oral Health Improvement

a. Gargle your mouth with a concoction of hydrogen peroxide and water (1 to 8 ratio).

b. Soak your toothbrush in chlorhexidine before brushing. Alternatively, use baking soda.

c. Brush gums with powdered myrrh and cloves.

2. Diet

a. Fruits

Consume at least 1 to 2 servings of fruits daily. Non-acidic fruits like pear, apple and pineapple are great.

b. Vegetables

Vegetables like broccoli, kale, carrots, spinach would help in the digestion of foods.

3. Vitamins

Daily intake of Vitamin B, C and zinc would aid to inhibit the growth of odor-producing bacteria. They basically help to keep our dietary system in check, remove toxins and waste and create an environment that is not conducive for bacteria to grow.

4. Home Bad Breath Remedies

a. Activated charcoal has excellent adsorption properties and is capable of binding with toxins, gases and waste in our stomach and intestines. Take about 4 to 5 mg per day.

b. Drinking a water solution with about one spoonful of apple cider vinegar before taking our food is useful for digestion.

These are some useful bad breath remedies anyone can use to combat odorous breath. There are many other online resources that offer excellent tips on how to get rid of the odor in our breath, so be sure to search around.

Has OraMD cured your bad breath?

bad breath cures
Jim asked:

My gums bleed when i brush them and I have bad breath. I have tried everything baking soda, Hydrogen Peroxide, and stuff. I brush like 3 times a day and floss. I keep having the same problem. I can tell when people look away when I am talking to them. I chew sugarless gum and try to drink lots of water but nothing seems to help. I just bought a bottle of OraMD and have been trying it. I think it is helping and I know it takes time usually but I wanted to see if any other people have tried it and what results they got.

Thanks
I even tried Smart Mouth, Dr Katz and most other products found at CVS.

Safe and Natural Cures for Bad Breath

Corwin Brown asked:

Bad breath is also associated with sinus infections because nasal discharge from your sinuses into the back of your throat can cause mouth odor. A child with bad breath may have a foreign object lodged in his or her nose. A bean or small item stuck in the nose can cause persistent nasal discharge and a foul odor.

Strep throat, tonsillitis and mononucleosis can cause bad breath until the throat infection clears. Bronchitis and other upper respiratory infections in which you cough up odorous sputum are other sources of bad breath. Canker sores may be related to bad breath, especially if they accompany periodontal disease.

Unripe guava is useful 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.

Among the several home remedies for halitosis, the use of fenugreek has proved most effective. A tea made from the seeds of this vegetable should be taken regularly for correcting the condition. This tea is prepared by putting one teaspoon of seeds in half a litre of cold water and allowing it to simmer for fifteen minutes over a low flame. It should then be strained and used as tea.

Put a 1 or 2 cloves in your mouth. You can chew it or simply leave. don’t worry if you swollow it it is harmless.

You can add some essential oil or peppermint for taste but it is not neccessary Scrape your tounge with the tongue scraper or brush it with a tooth brush. don’t brush too hard!!Then swish and gargle with the mouthwash you made above for a couple of minutes.Repeat twice per day or as needed. You will never have to buy mouthwash again.

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.
