Natural Health Remedies for Bad Breath

Posted Oct 20 2011 11:30pm

Many people do suffer from bad breath and you may have heard of natural health remedies such as peppermint, anatural treatment to counter the problem.

Bad breath is associated with a dry mouth, so taking steps to not have such a dry mouth can reduce the smell. You should make sure that you drink sufficient quantities of water so that you’re not generally dehydrated. Dieting or missing can reduce saliva and dry the mouth, so be sure to eat at regular intervals. Chew on special sugar-free gum, to cause salivation. Don’t drink excessive alcohol as that dries the mouth. Smoking dries the mouth, and is also bad for a number of other well known reasons.

Sometimes, the simplest natural health remedies is to make lifestyle and habitual changes. I was listening to a natural health discussion with my mp3 speakers and it was highlighting how the lack of hygiene can affect how we smell. Teeth should be brushed after every meal Be sure to be thorough and remove all the food particles. While you’re brushing your teeth, brush also the roof of your mouth and your tongue, using regular toothpaste, as this will help to clean adverse compounds. You should also floss between the teeth at least once a day, to dislodge any entrapped particles.

What you eat can make a difference to your health. Eat a low-fat diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Avoid too much meat and protein, as the protein is fuel for the bacteria which cause bad breath. Avoid particular strong foods, such as garlic and onions. When these get to the stomach, the smell transfers to the bloodstream, and the air you breath out picks up the smell from the lungs.
