Chewing cardamon or clove works quite effectively for bad breath.
I had bad breath for years 20 came across chlorophyll liquid. I gargle with it one tablespoon day and night. The best cure.
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 had my bad breath off and on for almost 24 years now and I tried all kinds of remedies but it comes back every now and then. I surf thru the internet last week and found liquid chlorophyll as one of the remedies of any body odor. So I tried it last night taking 1 tbsp after brushing my teeth and when I woke up ask my son to smell my breath and he was amazed that it doesn't have any smell at all. I hope this is it and I thank God for giving me this product which may be the final solution to my problem. I hope this will help you. Also I started taking primadophilus once a day but I think the one that really help me is the liquid chlorophyll. You just have to be careful because it stains in your clothes. It has a green color.

First thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon cinnamon powder mixed in hot water. Breath stays fresh throughout the day.
Chew on coffee bean for bad breath. It really does works and works better than breath mints. I used to carry mints in my purse, now I carry coffee bean with me. A friend of mine from Ethiopia told me about this. She said that coffee bean even works on garlic breath. So I tried it and she was right.

I make my own Colloidal Silver and my friends husband had a very bad case of halitosis. I gave him a bottle about eight years ago and he brushed his teeth with it and swallowed an ounce every day. They have bought their own machine since then and he hasn't had it since. Also, he hasn't turned silver like some of the talk shows said he would.
Just wondering if you have heard of the healing capabilities of Cream of Tartar? It was suggested on an Alternative Health Message Board. Since trying it I haven't suffered bad breath anymore..its meant to get rid of candida out of the body and the brain. Alot of people use it to stop smoking. There isn't alot of info on the web about it.
INFO.. GOOD FOR EVERYONE.
"Deep breathing saturates the blood with oxygen. These oxygen-laden red blood cells carry a negative electrical charge. The blood actually moves thru the body electrically. This is how and why blood is able to go thru the entire body so quickly.. Three quarts of blood goes through our capillaries every sixty seconds.. That is why it is important to breath deeply for 5 min. Every day."

For bad breath, I take a level desertspoon of diatamaceous earth once per day in a drink, works a treat
Hello, I am a Dentist from Venezuela and a Registered Dental Hygienist in Florida. Along more than 18 years of dental practice and experience dedicated mostly to the Dental Hygiene area I have become to learn that there are several causes for bad breath or "Alitosis" like dry mouth, stomach problems, cavities, etc but the MAIN cause of this condition is "LACK OF DAILY FLOSSING". Most of the people who suffer from this condition just DON'T floss. When you don't floss ALL contacts between ALL your teeth, plaque builds up under your gums and between your teeth, in less than 8 hours this plaque becomes BACTERIA and of course, with time if not removed properly, it turns into hard deposits of tartar. This is a chronic process. Lack of flossing can also led other type of health problems that can affect vital organs like the heart, kidneys, lungs, uterus, ovaries, etc.
Garlic tabs cure bad breath.
I am in my early 60's. Bad breath has plagued me my entire life. I have tried every possible method. I have been to the Monel Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Penn, Dr. Preddy was the one I saw. He ran me through a series of tests, sent me to a dentist, interviewed my wife and came to the conclusion, "Yes there is something", but gave me nothing to solve problem. My wife has said she thinks I make this up because my brother told me I had BB when I was young. I do not know why she can't smell me.
A lot of others have said they can or body language indicates so. I am sure you can relate to the following: Rubbing of their noses, offering you gum or mints, a sort of wrinkling of their face, as if trying not to inhale, even had one guy tell me I needed to have my teeth cleaned. I go to a dentist twice a year and have my teeth cleaned. I have a physical with blood work annually. All numbers in normal range. My doctor tells me I am in excellent shape. Confided in my dentist, but no suggestions or ideas.
I can smell it and taste it. Ranges from fecal smell, the dead smell and vomit. Tried flossing, having tonsils removed because of pearls (at age 28), tried Dr. Katz products, use a Hydroflosser water pick, nasal irrigator with saline solution, scraping tongue, brushing tongue, the chemical products available (3 different manufacturers), apple cider vinegar, hydrogen peroxide , baking soda, chlorophyll (tablets and liquid), Probiotics, Acidolphillus, colloidal silver and I am sure some others I have forgotten. Results are the same: helps at first, then it returns. It never leaves.
I can go through my morning regimen, which lasts 15 minutes, and within 30 minutes can smell my breath. It has become an obsession. I have a good personality and a college education and most people either overlook it or tolerate my problem. I was in sales prior to starting my own businesses, which involves sales. The majority of the help on the market try to treat the symptoms. I have not encountered anyone or company that tries to treat the cause. It does not matter what one eats or drinks. I know people that have horrible hygiene and do not have BB. I know people that do not use deodorant and have no body odor. I know people that have similar life style, smoke, drink and eat similar products that do not have BB.
The study I would like to see would be to find the chemical makeup of those that do not have odors and compare that to those that do. There is something they have that neutralizes the odors internally. Just my opinion. I have gone 3 months without drinking because of a diet that did not include alcohol. Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I thought it was the fact that I drank beer. Love to play golf and drink beer with my friends. Not so, BB is present whether I drink or not. Currently, I am not drinking because of a medication I am taking to help with rheumatoid arthritis. Supposed to take for 6-9 months. One month into it now. Still have BB.
Not writing this to give any cures or ask for advice, because for some of us, there are no solutions. To read this, one would think that I am a pessimistic person. Furtherest from the truth. I own several successful businesses and deal with a lot of different people. An eternal optimist that believes I can do anything I set my mind to try. Except I can't overcome this problem, which is very frustrating. I miss the kisses with my wife. Even though she says she can't smell me, we don't kiss. I have been in a terrible automobile accident and almost lost my leg and have recovered (as completely as I could). I am not a quitter.
So, I guess the message of this entirely too long dissertation, is this: Deal with your affliction as best you can. Keep trying whatever you think helps. Don't give up. If someone doesn't want to be around me because I have BB, they are going to miss out on some great stories, business opportunities and just good times. It is their loss. I can't help my problem and I have tried my entire life to overcome it....sorry. I have never reduced this to writing or told this to anyone. Thanks for listening.

This is all great information - thanks everyone. I have been a halitosis sufferer since puberty & have a good routine (including scraping/hydrogen peroxide & baking soda mix) as well as excellent oral hygiene. The one thing I am missing is real feedback - my wife has given me some at different stages of the day which has been useful but I would really value some more honest feedback. If anyone is Singapore/Malaysia based (or even London as I am there often), please let me know.
Hello, I recently stumbled upon this website and I have to say it is a god send for me, so much information about natural cures, a Big Thank You to all the posts, keep it up, you don't realise how many people your helping.
The question I'd like to ask is I recently started using Apple Cider Vinegar as a mouthwash and every time this brown speckles, sometimes like thick mucous thing (sorry only way I can think of describing it) comes out, anyone know what it is?
I recently read that some lemon or lime juice with 3x rose water, so 1/4 lemon juice, 3/4 rose water is very good for bad breath elimination, it kills all the bad bacteria and it makes your breath smell fresh, I read it in a herbal book but never tried it myself, so anyone that does, let me know if it works.
I'd greatly appreciate if someone can answer my question for me.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
