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.
The borax mix treatment:
I had pain in my knees and fingers. I started using this mix and its only been one week and my knees don't ache going up the stairs. I will continue for a while longer. My daughter had a foul breath and the second day after taking the mix she has no bad breath.
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.
Chewing Cardamon or Cloves
Chewing cardamon or clove works quite effectively for bad breath.
Everyone is mentioning liquid chlorophyll which the one I tried has too much of a strong taste. I take it in capsule form twice a day. There's two brands I've tried- Nullo (amazon) and Natures Way (health food store). At the health food store I just asked for an “internal deodorant”. It took a couple of days to kick in but YAY!!! It works!! Not only for bad breath but all body odor! No more smelly pits at all, bad breath gone, even poop and farts have no odor ((sorry tmi)). As far as the bad breath goes- yes it's not because bad oral hygiene. Love this stuff.
Also, after having a baby many moms are plagued with horrible BO — I seriously smelled like a skunk under my arms just a couple hours after showering:( soooooo relieved I can live a normal life now and not be embarrassed even in front of my husband.
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.
Cure: clove oil.
EC: Can you please provide more info, ie dosage, and instructions? Thanks.
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.
I have suffered from severe halitosis for close 10 years now and it has made my life a living hell. I have tried a plethora of different remedies, but nothing has worked for me, including the remedies that everyone on this site sings praises about - such as Hydrogen Peroxide, Probiotics, Liquid Chlorophyll, Activated Charcoal, etcetera. These help temporarily, but the stinky mouth and bad taste in the mouth always eventually return. After years of struggling to diagnose the root cause of the issue, I finally managed to pin it down to PND (post nasal drip). Managing chronic PND is expensive as it requires you to see a specialist and their rates are through the roof. Someone suggested I try cutting out gluten and dairy and perhaps going vegan to cure the issue but that wasn't feasible or affordable for me.
About a month ago, I started taking a cranberry extract (supplement) to help manage a recurring UTI and thrush problem - I swear I was getting vaginal thrush every single month. Lo and behold! Not only did the thrush and UTI issues disappear, but so did my halitosis! I was astonished! Especially because I wasn't even trying to cure the bad breath. Isn't that ironic? That I found a cure for my bad breath while attempting to treat a completely different health issue. I have no idea what's in cranberries that makes them completely get rid of bad odor. Even the little body odor I had has gone away. I don't even get morning breath! I will be forever grateful to cranberries for this. I had no idea that the solution to my problem was staring me in the face all along.
P.S. This solution works even better if you drink a lot of water (2 liters daily) and practice good oral hygiene. The solutions to all our health issues really can be found in nature!
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."
