H. Pylori Cause

After about 10 years of chronic halitosis I have finally been cured. I am a healthy 36 year old female but had halitosis no matter what I did. I wanted to get to the root of my problem so I tried oral hygiene. I brushed, cleaned with baking soda, vinegar, various mouth washes. Nothing worked. I then was seen by a ear, nose, throat doctor. I was told I had post nasal drip that could be the cause. After I used a neti pot to clear my nose for weeks with saline, I still continued to have bad breath. I next tried eating different foods, I tried about 10 different diets from gluten free to vegetarian. Nothing worked.

I finally went to a GI doctor. After some testing I was diagnosed with H Pylori, a bacteria in my intestinal lining. It is very common. About half of the world has it!! I have been on a triple antibiotic treatment for it for 3 days now and my halitosis disappeared after the first day! It's a miracle. This could be the source of halitosis for most people and they aren't even aware of it. Yogurt, probiotics, mint, etc, are just temporary cover ups for a long term problem that needs serious treatment.

May I ask what antibiotic or medicine your doctor gave you? Thank you.

I have been diagnosed with H. Pylori as well and have tried the triple therapy treatment for 3 times, but no improvement. I was told H. Pylori has become resistant to antibiotics. Can you please tell me what antibiotics you used to get rid of it? I am desperate.

[YEA]  Thank you thank you for posting this. HYDROGEN PEROXIDE TO THE RESCUE. I have researched bad breath a lot but never heard of hydrogen peroxide.
I have the stinkiest breath for a long time which has robbed me of my life .Even though I scrape my tongue, brush my teeth , gum , roof of mouth and inside of my cheeks and floss many times a day and used many advertised mouthwashes nothing helped.
My ex-wife used to say our bedroom was stinking from my breath. At work people were keeping their distances from me and some were getting really mad at me thinking my bad breath was from lack off of oral hygiene . I was going to Las Vegas and out of desperation I googled " bad breath clinic " in the hope of getting some help there and this page was one of the search results.
The day I read this page I googled " hydrogen peroxide for bad breath " and I found a page where it says to combine hydrogen peroxide and warm water 50/50 and soak the tooth brush in it to kill bacteria on it. Then scrape tongue , brush teeth with toothpaste using the decontaminated brush then swish and gargle for 45 seconds with the 50/50 mixture.So that day before going to bed I did exactly that.

The next morning I knelt by my bedside rested my head on my hands to say my prayers. When I pray in order to keep my mind from drifting to other thoughts I say my prayer loud which helps me concentrate on my prayer and normally I smell my own stinky breath bouncing of the bed and hitting my nose full force . But that day I didn't smell anything. I thought my nostrils were plugged and so I went to the bathroom and smelled my deodorant. My nose wasn't plugged I could smell the deodorant. Next I looked in the mirror and for the first time in my memory my tongue was pink, the inside of my cheeks were pink. Normally both were coated and looked whitish. I scraped my tongue and smelled nothing. The stink was gone , the ever present bad taste in my throat was gone. Thank God Almighty finally something which works for me. I cried for joy because all my life I have been humiliated by my bad breath, given up on social life and in short I was a spectator of others having a life and written off myself. So many times I had concluded my life wasn't worth living and had it not been for responsibilities I would have taken the easy way out long ago.
Again Thank You People for sharing this finally there is hope of social life and life for me. Who knows even romance!

By the way when I told one guy about my problem with bad breath and how hydrogen peroxide helped me he said usually the cause of such aggressive bad breath is yeast infection ( candida/ thrush) and he said people can easily get yeast infection from many things including drinking beer, wine and eating nuts . So if yoy have a good doctor it is good to get tested for oral yeast infection.

Try about a mouthful of apple cider vinegar and swish it around for about 30 seconds and then gargle, spit out immediately and rinse your mouth with cold or warm water because the vinegar is acidic and can wear down your tooth enamel same thing with too much peroxide if you use it without rinsing with water after.. A tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar diluted with 8 ounces of water and a teaspoon or tablespoon of honey is good to drink, it helps in aiding weight loss and also works as an antioxidant. I'm glad you were able to overcome your bad breath.... Cheers! :)

[YEA]   Yes, it actually works. My husband had bad breath which was causing me to not want to kiss him. He also had a tooth that was growing inside the gum. I think that may have also been part of the problem because it was infected. He went to the dentist and took the tooth out and the dentist told him to mix his mouthwash with a little peroxide when he gargles. The bad breath is totally gone! I use it too and do a breath check with my sister who is obsessed with her breath and she didn't smell a thing. So, you can gargle with the mixture and brush while it's in your mouth for best results.

[YEA]  Had an awful odor between a natural tooth and a crown, at the gumline. Did everything I could think of to eliminate it, short of using a jackhammer. In less than a hour after rigorous cleaning, scraping and brushing with a teeny DenTek brush, it was back.

Found this site and with it, the wisdom of hydrogen peroxide, along with various user examples of how it worked and was applied. Got myself a bottle and in just one day, I was freed of this awful curse!

I used it for several days then finally decided to stop and see what would happen. It has been over a week and so far, the odor has not returned. Success, and for less than a dollar.

My dentist had said sure, come on in, you will need an x-ray and probably a trip to the periodontist but we'll see you. Had I not found this site, I would have subjected myself to unnecessary radiation, extra costs and who know what else from a periodontist.

So thank you, everyone, for your wisdom and input.

[YEA]   It was such a blessing to stumble upon this cure. I had suffered for years. I had tried everything: elimination of dairy, various expensive mouthwashes and "systems", nasal irrigation (to reduce post nasal drip/sinus problems), water pik, pills and tonsillectomy (tonsil stones).

My hygiene had always been impeccable, so I had no idea why I had bad breath. My ENT found tonsil stones and recommended that I gargle with diluted peroxide and use an antihistamine nasal spray. It didn't work. I finally begged to have my tonsils removed. The bad breath went away for a few weeks before returning. Something told me to try peroxide again. Voila! My breath smells like...NOTHING. I needed the combination of a partial tonsillectomy and hydrogen peroxide (diluted 1:1 with water). My tonsil stones were hidden between my tonsil and the wall of my throat. I couldn't "hit" the problematic area with mouthwashes while my tonsils were still present. Interestingly, the tonsillectomy alone wasn't enough. I needed this mouthwash for maintenance. I use it twice a day and I'm free of bad breath!! Thank God. This stuff is the answer to my prayers.

I just had to share. P.S. I gargle ~45-60 seconds

[YEA]  It is hard to fully express how grateful I am for the information on this site. The input has saved me from an expensive, grueling dental appointment and likely gum scraping followup, which no one wants to undergo!

After noticing a distinct odor coming from between two rear molars every time I flossed or used a tiny brush to clean the area, I was distraught and called my dentist. They said to come in for an x-ray and exam (spend more money for nothing) and then I would probably have to go see a gum specialist. So I started researching and found that hydrogen peroxide can be very helpful for gum issues, so I bought some and added it to the baking soda concoction I use as mouthwash.

After only two applications, the odor is completely gone! Previously, I would scrub and clean and even put some toothpaste in the space, but the odor would return in less than an hour. Today, I ran the ultimate test and checked it with the tiny brush before even rinsing or cleaning my teeth, right after getting out of bed! No odor!

This is amazing and I am thrilled, so thank you everyone for your wonderful information about this life-changing, CHEAP solution to what is a common problem and can really cramp a person's style.

What I do is fill my water irrigating device with about one part H2O2 3% plus one part water and two tablespoons baking soda, then run it with special attention to that back area and keep the liquid in my mouth for as long as I can (2-3 minutes). Easy peasy, life is good!

[YEA]   Hi Madya, I use to use Dr. Katz therabreath products and it worked really well for awhile until I started using the sprays that go up your nose. That's when I think I got an infection because that's when the really bad smells was coming out of my nose. I immediately stop using that product... That was 5 years ago, I tried everything to get rid of those horrible smells but nothing worked until I heard about the antibiotic/penicillin Augmentin. After taking that I got it down to BB smell. Then I tried using natural remedies to get rid of that smell some worked briefly!

Then I came across this website and read all things people were trying. I decided to try the HP last week... YAY! ... It worked really well... That smell is gone. I haven't used HP for a few days and still the smell is gone... I also had to change my diet... No meat for awhile. I'm so thankful for this site because so many of use are suffering from this problem and desparately looking for safe solutions.

[YEA]  I suffered from halitosis for 20 years. It is intermittent due to my sinusitis and post nasal drips. Everytime I have symptoms like asthma and cough I usually consult our employee health department, luckily Im working in government hospital I can easily get those medicines. However post nasal drips and halitosis persisted despite of antibiotics, this makes me frustrated. I started to research hydrogen peroxide with silver colloidal silver we used in the hospital to disinfect ICUs frequently touch items. We use this solution due to Acinotobacter baumanni which is hard to kill with other disinfectant. Our disinfectant is made in Belgium called Bioxeco. Furthermore I read alot of aricles that one sources of halitosis is due to anearobic bateria and H202 prevents the growth of it.

I dilluted the stock solution of 5%H2O2 with colloidal silver to 3% by (6ml of H202 solution 4 ml of distilled water = 3%).

Procedure to clean mouth with solution.

1, Brush teeth with branded toothpaste. Dont rinse.

2. Wash the toothbrush with tap water.

3. Pour 10 ml of 3% H2O2 (any volume will do) in cup.

3. Wet the toothbrush with H202 and start brushing teeth, palate of mouth and tongue for several minutes.

4. Use the remaining solution for rinsing.

My halitosis is gone after the brushing. I checked by licking the back of my hand and smell it. I dont smell anything unlike before it smells bad.

I also begun inhaling 3% H202 with colloidal silver for post nasal drips and sinusitis for 10 days now but post nasal drips did not stop. Furthermore I started drinking ACV using the recommended dosage published in this site for 4 days now and hoping to get a positive result after 2 weeks or more. I will soon update my situation.

Finally, I am so thankful for this site. It helps me alot and the anecdotal research is worthful to consider. I believe that some of the remedies may or may not work for others, but for sure those individuals that doesnt exerperience changes may have underlying serious conditions that must be given attention. Such as one person form Bangladesh having white patches in toungue. He must perform various serological procedures that may confirm his conditions. Maybe he can do his research by surfing ( white are the underlying disease with white patches on tongue)

Hi, Thanks for this great solution for Bad breath!! I plan to use this..but one question: After rinsing with 50/50 peroxide solution, should I rinse my mouth again with water? If not, can I take the breakfast in the mrng after rinsing with solution? How safe it is to take food after rinsing?

[YEA]  I had bad breath to the extent that it was already affecting my social life. After stumbling into your website, I read the Hydrogen Peroxide may work. I tried it with equal parts of 3% concentratiion and water and gargled for about two minutes. The bad breath disappeared immediately. I have intentionally not used it for ten days now and still I don't have bad breath even first thing in the morning. Thanks so much....

[YEA]  I have got to thank every one of you who posted recommendations for the use of hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash for bad breath. I have been off white sugar and white flour for 10 weeks now and the candida death caused my mouth to be infiltrated w/ bacteria and my breath was stomach wrenching. One wash w/ peroxide created such a foaming action from my throat all the way through to my teeth that I could not believe the die off of toxins... I'm talking like white golf balls of foam, scraped my tongue after, brushed and rinsed and may I say sweet breath ever since. Doing it again tonight!!!! Delighted. This site has been such a positive place for safe, and natural remedies and I for one am so very grateful. Such wise and intelligent people here. God Bless!!!

I have the same experience: I completely eliminated sugar, wheat, corn, dairy, and excess meat from my diet about a week ago, and my partner told me last night that my breath had been bad for 2 days now. I didn't know until reading this, (and several other sites that mentioned low carb diet breath, ) that it may be from candida dying. Even though that is a good thing, the smell of it is not! Does anyone know how long this side-effect will last? How long will the bad breath persist from such a change in diet? Thanks

[YEA]  Oh, my god. This site is amazing. I stumbled onto Earth Clinic last week in my desperate search for a yeast infection cure. I'm trying many of the suggestions and am delighted by the pooled knowledge. This morning I woke up and almost passed out from the horrible breath that was coming from me - like something had died inside of me and then I'd ingested moth balls. Disgusting. I came here and then tried the diluted HO remedy. Had to do it three times to really see it working. The 3rd time I held it in my mouth for several minutes. I could feel it bubbling, and when I spit, there was a huge amount of bubbles in the sink. I tested my breath on my fiancÚ, and he said, "I don't know. It works so well I'm not sure I believe it. " Hah! Believe it, babe. I've been chewing gum with aspartame for years because of my fear of bad breath (I teach privately, one-on-one, and have been terrified of my breath). Now I can stop chewing that cancer-causing crap and stop wasting money on expensive "all natural" and ineffective products. Thank you, everyone!

[YEA]  Bad breath: the hydrogen peroxide really works. I always felt like the smell was coming from deep down in my stomach especially because I have very clean white teeth and gums. Almost instantly the smell went away just by gargling the peroxide. Afterwards I tried to isolate whether it was the peroxide or some other changes I have made and came to the conclusion that it is definitely the mouthwash. The only thing is that I do not dilute it in water.

I think you should concentrate on treating your gut as apposed to your mouth. Try digestive enzymes and ACV. As well I know for a fact that tonsil stones can smell that bad. if you press on the area around the tonsil and a white compound comes out you are dealing with tonsil stones. Hope this helps

Just a suggestion: try mixing a couple of tablespoons of baking soda in a glass of water and drinking it down! Don't gargle, just drink it. I had chronic bb for 20 years and was SO desperate. 3 dentists said it wasn't my teeth, 2 periodontists said it wasn't my gums, one of them said he believed it was a gastric problem.

Then saw 3 Gastroenterologists and had upper gi and endoscopies with no resolution. Tried the baking soda and as soon as I woke up the next morning, I could tell the smell was gone, which has since been confirmed by a coworker and my husband kissed me the other day like he hasn't in years!

[YEA]  I knew I had halitosis for so many years and God knows how much I have suffered because of this humiliating disease. I lost the girl I loved so much. I couldn't talk in front of people. I could sense based on people's reaction whenever I talk that my breath stinks as far as 10 feet away. I could hardly breath whenever I ride in a car with someone else because the malodor is there even if I don't talk (proof of my chronic condition - the odor comes not only from the mouth but from the nostril also). My job as an executive secretary involves a lot of talking to people, especially my bosses. Because of my stinking breath, I couldnt perform my job well, and the thought resigning has been hanging 'round my mind. I thought it's better to hide in the mountains where I can breath freely than to stay in the city where I feel I had no freedom to breathe.

I tried all kinds of toothpaste, mints, gums, mouthwashes, lemons, ginger, tea, water therapy, probiotics, dentist, EENT doctor, friends whom I knew had halitosis in the past, but nothing and no one was able to help. But thanks be to GOD, He led me to this site!!! Hydrogen Peroxide is His answer to my prayer for healing.

Knowing the severity of my condition, I started using HP 6% instead of 3% (1 tablespoon HP diluted with 5 tablespoon of water). My first time use was in the evening of April 24, 2009. I sensed how effective it was because the following morning, the foul odor is gone like magic! I intend to continue using it twice a day for a month, then will see if I can stop completely afterwards.

I can't thank you enough for this site. God has given me new life thru you. Thank YOU!! Thank GOD!!!

Answer to Joanne from Jakarta "HOW TO DILUTE 20% PEROXIDE FOR MOUTH WASH?"

You can dilute it to make a 1.5% solution. 1 vol of H2O2 @ 20% 12 vol of Distilled water will make a solution at about 1.5% i.e. 20%/13.

Formula for ratio of concentrated H2O2 to distilled water to produce a new concentration:

ratio = (OldConc/NewConc) -1

Ex: 20% -->10% requires 1 vol of H2O2 to 1 vol of Distilled water ( 20%/10%) -1 = 2 -1 = 1..

Ex 35% --> 3% requires 1 vol of H2O2 to 11 vol of Distilled water (35% / 3%) -1 = 12-1 = 11.

[YEA]   I've had Halitosis for a very long time. It so sad especially when it smelled like poo! People then get distance from me. I can't talk straight in the face of our friends. I can't even tell my boy friend I have it, though I can see that he fixes up his nose everytime we kiss. My family didn't know it as well but sometimes they also smell differently when I'm with them. Thankfully I got into this website. Iv tried several things and researched.

I realized probably its candida overgrowth. I am diabetic and has been taking medications since 18. My immune system is most of the time low or not in a normal state. I get usual tonsilitis, apthous ulcers and ailments, eventually taking up a lot of antibiotics. Probably all this have resulted me having chronic halitosis. I also checked my throat and have seen little tonsil stones. Will try to do light swabbing very very soon. Before, I brush almost 3-4x a day. Now ive reduced to 2x since Some say that excessive brushing is also not good for the mouth. Now, Ive tried the 50/50 diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide and it was miraculous! Yey! Even now that I woke up at 2am in the early morning, my breath does not smell. Ive tried licking the back of my wrist 3times and no smell. It usually stinks when I do it.

Unfortunately I now have acid refluxes. This may also contribute to bad breath. Im planning to undergo endoscopy and will share it again to you guys. Thank you so much Lord. Now I feel more free than ever! Just a question, I havent eaten after gargling HP since it is before bedtime. What about in the morning, does your mouth smell again after eating? Thanks a lot and I hope for replies. Thank you God for this website and thank you people for not losing hope. Lets stay healthy, eliminating sugar and slowing down carbs. Do exercising and dancing! God bless!

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Just to let people know that I got a condition known as hairy tongue about a year ago when I first started messing about with H202. If you are going to use it for a mouth wash, make sure that even the 3% Peroxide is diluted. At most, the ratio is supposed to be 1:5 in the water.

Anyway, I took it straight and it caused a horrible unsightly condition called hairy tongue which I have NOT been able to get rid of.
I have posted something on this site about six months ago - tried everything, salt water, h202 dilute, lemon water, brushing it with a scraper etc and NOTHING works.

I am not knowing Hydrogen Peroxide. I am sure it is good stuff and has its uses but don't use it as a mouthwash like I did without diluting it. Be careful when experimenting.

Take Care (and if anyone knows something that can help me, please let me know)

I suffered from a "hairy tongue" or a white coated tongue for many months. I did not know what caused the problem, and tried every oral hygiene method I could think of to remedy it, but to no avail. Everyone to include the doctors said it was because I had a dirty mouth. I have always prided myself on taking care of my dental needs so I knew a dirty mouth was not the problem. To make a long story short, through my persistent, I finally found a doctor who diagnosed the problem. The hairy tongue was caused by excessive yeast in my body. Just as excessive yeast can show up as a vaginal yeast infection, it can also show up as a hairy or white coated tongue in the mouth. The doctor prescribed the proper antibiotics and within days the problem disappeared.

Hyrdrogen peroxide is found in pharmacies but you gotta make sure it's very distilled when mixed with water, cause H2O2 is very powerful and damaging, so first make sure it's at a safe concentration before consuming, as for the exact concentrations I wouldn't be the right person to ask as I don't use it- previous posts give exact concentration details, hope it works out!

I used to have a somewhat furry tongue(white) I used to smoke for years and drank a lot of beer. What I did was I went out and bought some extra virgin coconut oil, originally to make the swelling in my tonsils go down. I brushed my teeth first and then put a big glob of oil in my mouth. I tilted my head back and let it sink to the back of my throat. I held it there and gargled it for about 20 minutes. When I spit it out, my tongue was immediately wayyy pinker. I think I'm allergic to the oil though, because I ate a few tbsp of it and broke out in minor hives on my finger and lips. But it really cured my white tongue. I stopped using it though because of the hives and now to keep my tongue pink, I dip my toothbrush in mouthwash, brush my tongue, and use a tongue scraper to scrape it all off gently. My tongue has improved 90% in one week.

[YEA]  I have been suffering from bad breath for a few years now and had tried various different remedies, some worked, but mainly for a very short space of time, the bad breath always returning. I tried the HP and am very pleased to say my bad breath has COMPLETELY cleared up! I used 2 parts HP to 5 parts water of 3%, 10vol type (that is what is says on the bottle!). I gargle and rinse morning and night, for as long as I can stand, usually max 30 secs per mouthful, then spit out. I then rinse my mouth with salt water. I also wait the 15 mins before I drink or eat anything.

With other remedies and mouthwashes, they simply mask the problem, but with HP because it eliminates the actual bacteria, you then eliminate the bad breath. A big THANK you to this site for helping me in this way, I feel so much better all round. I would definately urge ANYONE with bad breath problems to give this a go.

I am encouraged by the information on this site as I have suffered from CHRONIC bad breath for over 10 years now. I am almost afraid to put too much hope into the hydrogen peroxide remedy as everything else I have tried has ultimately failed over time. I have had some success with commercial remedies, however, this is always short lived - it is as though my mouth becomes accustomed to the active ingredients and the effectiveness wears off. I would be interested in hearing if people with CHRONIC bad breath have had long term success using hydrogen peroxide. Many thanks!

Hi all... I've had severe halitosis for over 24 years, it's such a crippling and alienating condition to suffer from, like everyone with this ailment, I've suffered my fair share of humiliation and embarrassment, and because of it I've tried effortlessly to find a cure by seeking answers from many 7 dentists, 4 ENTs, 3 Gastroenterologists and over 20 GPs and the list goes on and none were able to help me or even pinpoint the cause of it, they were all puzzled and basically gave up! Tried all the mouthwashes and expensive treatments out there, went on various diets and detoxes, tried endless antibiotics but with no avail!

I tried Hydrogen Peroxide and ACV 3 years ago when I stumbled on this website and guess what? It actually worked! But only temporarily!! The bad breath didn't completely diminish but it improved by probably 90% so at that time I was probably the happiest person on earth because I truly believed that I was finally being cured and that in few more days or weeks the bb will completely disappear! But to my disappointed the bb never really disappeared but instead it came back and neither HP nor ACV worked on me again. It's like the bacteria in my mouth or gut - or wherever it's hiding - had become immune to it. So I was so disappointed and my hopes and dreams were shattered once again!

What I want to know from all of the people who have tried HP and ACV and had positive results with it, whether their cure was short term or they were actually completely cured and bb never returned?

I would also appreciate any suggestions or other cures that might help me with my condition as it's ruining my life.

I know a lady that was complaining about really bad breath. She found out that she had the Helicobacter Pylori bacteria in her stomach. Once she got read of it, the bad breath dissapeared. Look into Manuka honey, Grapefruit Seed extract, garlic. Clean you blood with stinging nettle tee.

3 steps to help conquer the battle of the breath, and each solves a contributing factor, so try them separately for 1-2 weeks at a time, or all together, whichever you prefer.

1. Add baking soda to your toothbrush and oral rinse. It neutralizes acid like no tomorrow. Tastes blech, works great. Avoid alcohol mouthwashes.

2. Consume yogurt daily, or a similar dose of probiotic drink or capsules - yogurt is best. Look for at least 4 billion probiotic per serving.

3. Scrape your tongue with a spoon daily.

Also, Check your pH for acidosis. When your pH is in balance, your GI tract and breath will be also. And make sure you are getting enough water.

Desperation and embarrassment let me to searching. I don't know where my father got his information from but for years now I have heard him talking about peroxide as an effective rinse for bad breath. I really did not pay much attention to him even though I'm a nurse and I use peroxide all the time as antibacterial.

This afternoon I was sitting and talking to a few colleagues and the one I was closer to started saying "what is that smell, it smells like a dead rat in here". Having had bad breath for years I immidiately got suspicious. It's like when people sitting next to you all of sudden start fidgeting and looking around and you know next out comes the gum they offer you. Anyone with bad breath history know what I'm talking about. So I looked in her direction and continued talking and she repeated the same thing. Anyway I finshes my talking a little sooner than I wanted to and left together with one other colleague. I went back in and noticed one turned her head away when she saw me and the same colleague was just finishing the same humiliating sentence that she had said before.

I tried to convince myself to give her permission to make me feel bad but she won. I was devastated. I then decided to start looking into peroxide as a mouthwash and I stumbled accross this site.

I have used several different mouthwashes over the years Some were somewhat effective. I never really kept using them for a long time for I'm afraid that long term use of them may cause cancer. This morning, several hours before my humiliation, I used Tom of Maines because it claims to be natural. I have no choice now but to use peroxide and I will definitely do try it and I hope my halitosis and my days of bad humiliation are OVER.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THIS SITE EITHER BY SHARING THEIR STORIES OR BY PROVIDING SOME KIND OF HELP!

So sorry you experienced that rejection but happy you have found the earth clinic family. If we say something thoughtless or stupid at times. Please forgive us . My worst breath experience was during a time my dentist put me in a situation where I had to keep returning trying to get them to do the right thing. They didn't, so I had to get a mediator. Well that stress made my normally lovely breath, turn horrible. I was shocked my breath was so awful. I use coconut oil, pull it through my mouth for five minutes in the morning. At bedtime I eat a charcoal tablet to clean up my gut. Hope you find your sweet breath again. Forgive them for they know not what they do. What the enemy means to harm us, is worked out for our good. Amen

It is my opinion that bad breath comes from the stomach. Be sure you are balancing your meals with many veggies and fruits, less starch. Consider reading Candida: Killing Me Sweetly. It's helped my husband.

[YEA]  I use over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash, but have always disliked the aftertaste. I purchased a bottle of peppermint oil from the baking section of my local market, and put one tablespoon in an eight ounce bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Mouth feels very clean (and now minty fresh, too!) Others may like to add their favorite flavors, increasing or decreasing the measurement according to taste. Make sure to GENTLY shake your bottle before opening to keep peppermint oil evenly distributed, and keep your mouthwash in an opaque bottle (I use the same brown bottle purchased at the dollar store). Refrigerate if your bathroom is very warm, and keep bottle out of direct sunlight.

I just bought the peppermint oil - great suggestion - it is much better this way but I dilute mine with 50 % water. Do you use hydrogen peroxide 3% straight?
