Try this mouthwash out before going to bed after brushing your teeth. In the morning there will be no plaque on the teeth. It whitens the teeth and strenghtens the gums. An acquaintance who suffered from bleeding gums and could not find a medical cure tried it and was cured of his bleeding gums. He used it before going to bed, on awakening and after meals. A dentist in west London who tried it stated that it was the best mouthwash ever.
In a glass of warm water add a teaspoon of pure honey and stir well. Gargle your mouth swishing between the teeth. Also gargle your throat. It kills the bacteria lodged between the teeth. The same bacteria is found in of diseased heats. Save yourself form heart disease.
Try it out and recommend it to your family, friends etc. and specially to the medical fraternity who pump useless drugs.
Save money on commercial mouthwashes that do not really do anything.
I forgot to brush my teeth one morning before work, and while standing about 4 ft from her and talking, my daughter was practically crying at the smell. I decided to try a bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide that.I found st the Dollar Store, bought a package of plastic shot glasses while there, and took them both home. I immediately started using it by filling those shotglasses 1/2 full of HP and swished around my mouth, for about 30 seconds, morning and night. I made sure.to gargle at the back of my throat, too. It worked like a miracle! Right after the 1st time using it I could tell an intense difference in my mouth, I didn't taste that "tinny taste" that halitosis sufferers know so well, and gained confidence!
I started my 15 yr old son, as well, and within 4 days, yes only 4 days, the kid didn't even have morning breath anymore! He has the sweetest smelling breath ever! All this for a Dollar Store purchase!!
Apple Cider Vinegar
I suffered with bad breath for years. I would pray to God to help me. Family and co-workers would turn the heads or put their hands up to cover their nose. God brought ACV into my life. I discovered my lungs over producing mucous which caused bacteria to grow in the back of my throat and cause BB.
Taking one tsp of ACV, one tsp of water, one tsp of Raw unfiltered honey mix well and drink, Two times a day am and pm take on a empty stomach. Make sure you rinse your mouth thoroughly. Now I am spitting up mucus. No more BB. Glory to GOD. Please share with others, the isolation was brutal.
It is amazing! Halitosis has completely disappeared since 20th April, 2016.
Dose: two teaspoonful of activated charcoal powder in a glass of drinking water, 3 hrs after dinner.
Brushing teeth using charcoal paste 3 times daily.
Now I am glad, I am smiling, I am cured! God bless you plenty.
EC: Charcoal should always be taken with plenty of water to avoid constipation.
Here my story of "Bad Breath" I been using ever thing to baking soda, limes and water mix together, to flossing every time I brush my teeth, and using mouthwash. Until I came across this website. I read all the message and could not believe the result on Acidophilus. So I got up ran and picked up Acidophilus (4 billion). l can already tell the difference. The bad taste in my mouth has started to leave. Will keep you posted later for bad breath results.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I just discovered how Apple Cider vinegar can 100% improve bad breath and cure halitosis! I tried everything first! I brushed with baking soda, I gargled with peroxide multiple times a day, I bought tongue brushers. I had used a string of products. I used top grade essential oils. I brushed my teeth 4 times a day. I even own an electric toothbrush!
Nothing worked for three years of searching, perpxide helped but didn't cure it. Essential therapeutic grade peppermint helps but doesn't cure it! I needed a cure!!!
I read an article and gave organic Apple Cider a try. Nothing works like Of the Mother Apple Cider Vinegar!! Wow! Here is what I did and what happened.
So I started of with two teaspoons of A.C. mixed with 3 to 4 oz of water and I would drink it every morning. Then in the evening I would drink one teaspoon mixed with 2 oz of water.
My breath immediately started to improve and after 6 days I don't even have morning breath anymore! Ok, so I was on this for two weeks and decided wow, my breath is amazing, what happens if I stop? ..My breath was still fairly good for three days after I stopped but then started to get bad, and on the last day, day 5, I couldn't take it and started back on my routine.
I am up to a tablespoon in the morning and a teaspoon at night. I mix both with at least a few ounces of water. (Please vary this to find what works for you) I have been on it again for a whole week, this morning I woke up thirsty, but I had FRESH BREATH! I mean like .02% of an order but a mild barely there because of dry mouth is normal. I just did my teaspoon of A.C.V. and brushed my teeth. I am so amazed!
I am sure to buy this and do this routine for the rest of my life. Good thing is any grocery store sells this!
I don't even need my tongue cleaners anymore. I heard this stuff was good but, I had to try it for myself. Also, it is not acidic on the stomach like some may worry about, it seams to neutralize the acid from coffee and helps me with heartburn.
This is a no joke cure! I'm a regular female that suffered from halitosis and now it is gone! Now, I only now brush my teeth in the morning and before bed.
Have you tried drinking the tea GYMNEMA SYLVESTRE? This is very helpful for diabetes, and also for yeast. It is helping me. I have yeast issues and breath issues. Gymnema sylvestre helps with cravings, blood sugar, and apparently helps people get of off diabetes medication. I have lost a touch of weight as those insane yeasty cravings are basically gone, and when I eat I feel satisfied. It hasn't helped the bb, but overall, it has helped me with the blood sugar issue, the cravings for carbs, sweets, etc. It apparently kills the fungal form of yeast.
Yes, I had the same experience. Hydrogen peroxide + baking soda worked fabulously for a while. Then they didn't. I have found the only toothpaste that is remotely effective (although I still have bb) are the Eco Dent powder toothpastes. I like anise and cinnamon. Anything else on this planet doesn't work.
I am going to try drinking diatomaceous earth. Also attack the yeast issue I have.
Removing Tonsil Stones
Hi there, your story sounds like mine, I found out about tonsil stones after I looked in my 10 year old son's mouth after months of bad breath and doctor not being able to help me, and what looked like mini tic tacs (mints) on his tonsil, I was horrified, then googled it and over 4 days have removed all this gunk from both tonsils, bad breath has subsided dramatically. This bought back memories of me coughing up smelly balls of mucus in my 20's. I've had him gargle with salt water and ACV (separately).
Although you are a dentist, you are wrong. Flossing is only a part cure. There are different types of BB. Ever time I clear my throat a nasty smell occurs. All of my BB is occurring in the sinus and from the back of the throat. All dentists say that bb is cased by lack of oral hygiene because they want to further their own careers!
Salt Water Gargle
I tried everything....paid a lot of money trying different things. I was told to gargle with salt water twice a day I thought that wouldn't work I need something strong...I was WRONG. THE SALT WORKS.... Please try the salt...it's cheap and it works It was an answered pray for me...I now brush my teeth with the salt I had years of embarrassment....and my solution was in the cabinet all the time.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda
I'm really going to try it out. Because I have tried baking soda few weeks ago and it worked for like 2 to 3 days and my bad breath came back again. I have been struggling with bb for years and I can't get rid of it, I've tried everything. I brush my teeth regularly, I go to the dentist every 6 months and he said that my teeth were healthy and no cavities so I don't get it.
Hi Yusuf. The brown "slimy" substance that you found in the ACV is called "the mother", and you don't have to worry about it, it's actually the most nutritious part of ACV.
Also, keep a small dark bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide in the staff bathroom at work. Gargle with it and drip some down your nostrils, too. This should work for you in short order. Keep the faith.
This is true! I suffered for 25 years until I heard about the food grade diatomacious earth. I thought nothing would help and believe me I tried every mouth wash, gum, you name it! It was bad! After one day of taking just 1/2 teaspoon in water, it solved my issue like a magic trick. I couldn't believe it! My life has changed for the better. People aren't walking away anymore, putting their hand over their nose or checking their baby's diaper (yes, that happened! ). I'm so much more confident!
Irrigate Sinuses, Clean Tonsils
Something worked for me and I hope it will help those who suffer as well. All my life I looked into mouth thinking, it was teeth, I brushed till my teeth got erosions. I had no post nasal drip so I thought that is not the case for me. But when I swallowed, I always smelled that decay somewhere but still that no, I have dry nose and no I have no drip. But few days ago, I irrigated my nose using mix of water/h202 and brushed way back my tonsils! Keeping the electronic brush to the sides so I wont gag. BOY, MIRACLE. I DID THIS BEFORE BED AND NEXT MORNING. NOW FOUL TASTE OR BAD BREATH. NOT EVEN MORNING BREATH. SO IT WAS FROM NOSTRILS AND TONSILS. I HOPE YOU WILL GIVE IT A TRY!
Chewing Cardamon or Cloves
For those of us who have tried everything under the sun to control Bad Breath but did not help. It is genetic. Here is what I found that helps, for myself at least. The bb is not from below but from above, when nasal drip get stuck or hangs around.
Irrigate with saline water each night before bedtime after your usual oral routine.
For daytime, chew one clove and keep one in your mouth. Unlike mints which dissolves in 5 minutes, it stays in your mouth at least for 4 hours without any sugar and it will stop the odor from being offensive.
Chew one and keep one in your mouth at all times. It is small, harmless and keeps the pleasant order for a long, long time. Easy to carry in pockets and purses too and it does not perish, melt or lose potency.
I hear you John. Dr's don't know that is why they ignore all who complain. I have been reading about all the BB on the net for the past 2 weeks and it makes anyone cry how much suffering they have gone through and yet no one hears them. Strange. I heard a lecture about some condition fishi breath which is caused by the inability to break down choline. But those ppl have body order as well. BB is another type of metabolic disorder, something is not being able to metabolize and it is excreted via the breath. What type of enzyme is lacking, I do not know. That is what I believe. The only solution is, every hour, rinse and brush (does not have to be with toothpaste) dry brush to remove debris out, drink water, chew on raw vegetable gum. There is no solution to permanently remove, hourly and mindfully remove the built-up bacterial debris out of the back of the mouth, tongue and rinse.
It's coming from your tongue. I suffer from bad breath since 1984. I very spent at least 20000 dollars. I had tonsillectomy, septum surgery, went see Dr spider in Australia., Dr Katz in California, Dr miller in virginia. Nothing helps. One day I decided to cure myself. I very noticed my tongue was always white. I bought a tongue brush and started to brush my tongue as hard I could for 5 minutes. My mouth was bloody but the pain was nothing compared to 30 years of embarrassment. I clean my mouth with warm water. Voila! My life changes from that moment. No more bad taste. I immediately went to the supermarket and started talking on the phone to see how people reacts. No reaction whatsoever. That was the first I ever talk to the cashier I even say thank you just to test my breath.
Once again it's your tongue. Don't use toothbrush. Use a tongue brush . You need to get rid of the white film. The bacterias live underneath.
To get the most of your probiotics, take Oil of Oregano prior to retiring and probiotics first thing in the morning w/ 500mg Glutamine.
ACV and Coconut Oil also improves digestion & elimination.
Where can I buy this acidophilus 8 billions? Can I buy this without doctor's prescription?
EC: Yes, you can find many brands 8 billion that offer online or in a health food store.
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.
Thanks for this! How warm is the water? What kind of water do you use? distilled, tap etc........Does this still work if you use cold water? PLEASE PLEASE RESPOND ASAP Many blessings to ALL of us who suffer!
Try betaine with pepsin. 625 betaine with 100 pepsin at the vitamin store.
Betaine HCL with Pepsin
To all who have a problem with really bad breath. I have searched many years for a cure for the problem. I have tried everything known to man. I finally found something that has been working for me and I am so thankful to God for finally finding something. I believe through research that this problem is definitely caused by our digestive system. Certain foods are not being digested correctly. We are missing an enzyme or digestive acid. Anyway, if you have the same terrible breath problem please go to a vitamin store or online and buy a bottle of Betaine (HCL) plus pepsin. 625 betaine plus 100 pepsin. Research by me says take only one a day in the morning after breakfast. Let me know if it works. If it does then thank the Lord. Good luck and hope it works for you . John D.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Acidophilus
Take 70 billion probiotics a day and no dairy foods. Take an enzyme tablet also before you eat. Do you know your blood type. Look up Eat for your Blood type.
Goldenseal and Echinacea
They are usually sold in capsules in america and online so try that? I don't know Ghana but that is how it ships worldwide. Maybe you can get some fresh in Ghana.
Goldenseal and Echinacea
Please where can I get the goldenseal and echinacea in Ghana (Accra) to buy?
Don't use hydrogen peroxide every day.
Activated Charcoal, Eliminating Grains
I have tried hydrogen peroxide, acidophilus and liquid chlorophyll. But none had the immediate effects that the activated charcoal had along with eliminating grains (accept flaxseed) from my diet.
I take 3 capsules a 2-3 hours before bed with a large glass of water.
One day, I was grocery shopping and was hungry so I decided to buy my favorite sushi at the sushi bar. I ate it then went to work and my breath smelled bad. I went to the bathroom and brushed my teeth, then tried to mask the odor with mint gum but it did not help. I realized then that the rice in the sushi was most likely the cause and eliminated rice from my diet.
It's been about a month now any my breath is much improved. I am thankful for the sushi incident because it pinpointed the rice as one of the causes for the bad breath. When I went back grocery shopping, I bought smoke salmon and ate it without any strong after affects.
I am blood type o + and my current diet consists of vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, fruit and flaxseed, which some might consider Paleo. I have eliminated dairy, wheat, and grains, (accept flaxseed). I hope that this information benefits someone.
Hi John, your symptoms are similar to mine. have you try Grape fruit extract? I rinse my mouth with it twice a day and got cure with it within 2 days. Cheers.
I've had bad breath for 20 years and worked in industry and sales. I've tried gastroenterologist, dentist orthodontist and ENT. Drove 150 miles to dental clinic in Atlanta. All to no avail. Still had bad breath. In my local health food store to buy coconut oil, for oil pulling talked with sales person. She suggested chlorophyll liquid. Three days later no bad breath. I can't believe it. A lot of stress gone. Chlorophyll liquid couple of ounces a day in orange juice.
I have suffered from bad breath for 7 years chronic bad breath I tried every thing charcoal pills, candida pills, oil pulling, coconut oil , b6, zinc, peroxide, I've read everything and tried everything the answer is ZINC (gluconate) 30mg from Swanson 2 x day with food because it tears up ur gizzard apparently so also google side effects. See a doctor and dentist if they cant help you try this. Also diet change, no dairy because it forms mucus bacteria live and cut the meat down 30% veg 50% no onion or garlic stays in the blood. Get a tongue scraper and oil pull with coconut oil.
Lick the back of ur hand and see how it is, I was too embarrased to see a doctor or dentist, manage your breath and research, trial and error, be careful with zinc its got a lot of side effects, but it's definately helped. Good luck!!
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!
H. Pylori Cause
I have been reading threads like this for almost a year and vowed once I solved this problem of bad breath I would inform as many as possible.
Been through it all : people asking who farted, screwed up faces, avoiding people etc because of the evident bad breath. I could tell a hundred stories and a thousand "cures" I tried but finally I got a positive stool test for H Pylori. I'm currently on the triple therapy treatment and my bad breath has gone. There's more than chance that it will come back and I'm prepared for that but the great news is that I know now. I've recently learned that stomach acid needs to be balanced I.e find out if you have too much or not enough (google it) then fight the bacteria off in your gut then begin to live life again.
Get tested for H Pylori and Sibo, be sure when testing for Sibo to get the hydrogen AND methane test. Once you've got the culprit then smash it with what you decide is best, naturals or antibiotics. Figure out what your stomach acid is like low or high and address then low fermentation diet for a couple months.
Personally the triple therapy antibiotics plus cabbage juice and hydrochloric acid is working for me but that's just my case and everyone is different. I have low stomach acid so I stopped the PPI with the triple therapy and my wieght is going back up slowly after losing nearly two stone, my nasal passages have cleared up (result of digestive tract clearing) and bloating reducing.
DONT QUIT, THIS IS A TEST THAT WE MUST SOLVE. LIFE MUST CARRY ON.
Bad Breath - This is what works for me some - take three times a day, acidophilus 3 billion, get some pure lemon juice, mix with warm salt water distilled.
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?
That's not true for the people on sites like these. If ur paying attention- these people have tried everything NORMAL and its not helping. I heard on another website that bismuth ( like pepto bismol) sometimes helps because it kills bacteria in the gut.
Removing Tonsil Stones
Has anyone thought about the bad smell possibly being from tonsil stones?? My 10 year old daughter had the worst bb and one day I stumbled across a video on youtube about tonsil stones and how to remove them. (Which I thought was interesting because a few days before that I had coughed and this nasty greenish horrible smelling ball of stuff landed on my hand) So I watched the video. I did exactly what the people did in the video and I got SO much nasty smelling green tonsil stones out of the back of my mouth and my daughters was even worse. Ever since then we remove the stones from time to time brush and rinse with charcoal caps & peroxide and no more bb!! Hope this helps!!!
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! :)
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.
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
Over the Counter
I have used pro fresh from time to time but not permanently because I'm afraid that it might cause cancers in the long run. Does anyone have any thoughts on pro fresh vis a vie my concern? Thank you
I know exactly how you feel. It's 3:39 am. I can not sleep. I'm looking at possible solution to this awful problem. Because just earlier today, my colleague said that she was smelling a dead rat as I was speaking.
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!
ref. Andria, Concordia , Kansas - Had planters warts.when I was 15, had 50 or more on both feet. Doctor ready to burn off. Mom's friend says, oh take liver pills. Gone in 2 weeks.
Hi sorry for my late answer. I use acidophilus and bifidus 8 billion from now foods, but the first three months I used acidophilus 4 billion plus from health aid. I liked more from health aid maybe I stick to that. My tongue is pinker now and I clean it everyday with Ora brush. I have a tonsil that has a crypt, when I eat junk food or cheese the next day has a little tonsil stone. I check it everyday, twice day when I brush and clean it with a q-tip. I believe the very bad breath was from that. I am calm now with this problem! Don't panic, you'll find the answer to your problem, the best thing you can do, TALK to your parents, siblings, boyfriend, girlfriend, the person you are close to. I hope I helped!
