Bad Breath Solutions

Bad Breath Solutions

Okay we’ve all been there. We go on a date, lunch with a friend, or we meet somebody at an event and all we can notice is their bad breath! How do we react? Do we tell them or do we just pretend not to notice?

I have certainly met people on numerous occasions where each time they have had halitosis and I am often left thinking “I wonder if their spouse, mother, best friend, or somebody has ever told them? I know I for one would want to know.

While how and when to speak with somebody about this touchy subject is important, let’s focus on ways we can improve our own breath and how to avoid future bad breath scenarios and awkward conversations.

The truth is, bad breath can be caused by numerous issues within the body including disease, infection, indigestion, and from the simple act of fasting. It may also be exacerbated by vitamin supplements or medication. If you’re concerned with ongoing halitosis, see your doctor and get to the root of the problem. In the meantime, here are some of the best options that will help:

  • Neti Pot – Often halitosis is caused by sinus infections or congestion due to a cold or allergies. Ongoing buildup in the sinuses can draw bacteria to itself and cause an unpleasant odor. An ancient tradition that involves rinsing the nasal cavities with a lukewarm saline solution can help to rid your body of bacteria, germs, and even infection.
  • Tongue Cleaner – Sometimes food buildup can remain on our tongues which may cause an offensive odor. Find an effective tongue cleaner from the drug store and use it daily. Getting rid of excess accumulation on the tongue with this speedy process will help.
  • Smart Mouth – This mouthwash was first promoted on the television show The Apprentice many years ago. It works! Smart Mouthhas a patented zinc technology that helps to offset bad odor and eliminate it quickly and effectively with the positive effects lasting for up to 12 hours. It does have food coloring which I don’t like but in small amounts, it’s fine.
  • Floss & Brush – These are obvious suggestions but worth mentioning. Flossing daily not only helps to fight bacteria and plaque below the gum line, but it may also reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months to avoid bacteria overload. Also get your teeth cleaned and checked at least twice per year at the dentist.
  • Liver Cleanse – Serious bad breath can be caused from toxicity within the liver. This may be the time when a diet change and detox should be considered. There are many herbs and plants that you can take daily including Milk Thistle, Wheatgrass, and Chlorella, but a 7-14 day intensive cleanse is recommended to help clear out excess sludge and possible chemicals and toxins within the liver and gallbladder.
  • Oil of Oregano – This super immune booster will not only help to lower your incidence of getting sick, it also assists in killing odor-causing germs and bacteria in the mouth and nose. 3-5 drops of oil of oreganounder the tongue regularly will definitely help. You can also add the drops to water and gargle for a thorough rinse.
  • Get your Gut Healthy – Most people are walking around with poor gut health and digestion. Imbalances in our gut can lead to bad breath due to improperly digested food. Take a probiotic supplement daily, eat fermented foods such as kefir, kimchee, kombucha, and sauerkraut, and consider Biome Medic, the breakthrough product that helps to rebuild gut health within 6 weeks!

  • Oil Pulling – This amazing practice helps to kill excess bacteria in the mouth and gums and has been shown to whiten teeth and help receding gums as well. Try swishing with coconut or sesame oil daily for up to 20-minutes making sure to pull it between your teeth and gums. Do it while sending emails or scrolling through Facebook.

Glyphosate – The Problem with Today’s Food

Glyphosate – The Problem with Today’s Food

Long gone are the days of our great grandparent’s food. In those times everything was organic and people lived off the land. The soil was rich in minerals and our produce was packed with vitamins and phytonutrients. Our food was pure and natural.

Flash forward to today. 75% of the food in restaurants and on our grocery shelves contains glyphosate. Glyphosate is a chemical from pesticides and herbicides that has now been linked to a number of health challenges and food sensitivities. In fact, the state of California and the world health organization (WHO) have deemed glyphosate a possible cancer-causing agent. It is estimated that 90% of human beings have glyphosate in their body.

Glyphosate is the main chemical ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup. This product alone brings the company almost 2 billion dollars of sales annually. When sprayed on organic produce, glyphosate quickly kills the fruit or vegetable and the surrounding weeds and pests. When sprayed on genetically modified (GMO) produce however, the food goes unaffected. The DNA of GMO fruits and vegetables are manipulated in such a way to withstand these chemicals, which by the way, cannot be washed or cooked off. They remain permanently in the non-organic foods that we eat.

New studies are now showing that there may be a direct link to glyphosate and gluten intolerance along with a myriad of other disease. The main reasons are because these sprays break down the villi in our lower gut called the micro biome. These tiny fingerlike villi protect our stomach and work hard to absorb nutrients into our system. When these villi are gone, it leaves our digestive track and lower biome more vulnerable to all types of digestive issues. Our gut is often called our second brain and everything that happens there affects our entire body including immunity, metabolism, and energy levels. With less resistance and lower healthy bacteria, we are more prone to health challenges from cancer to inflammatory issues such as arthritis and much more.

Thankfully, an amazing California-based health company has just launched a breakthrough product, which helps to remove this harmful glyphosate from the lower stomach and digestive area and then assists in re-building a healthy environment where these villi can rebuild and get back to the important role of protecting our gut.

Purium which is a certified organic, raw, non-GMO superfood company run by the well-known health guru David Sandoval, states that BIOME MEDIC works extremely well for this modern day problem. Humic and Fulvic acid are used to gently remove glyphosate from the micro biome and lactospore works to rebuild healthy bacteria.

With modern problems come modern solutions. As a wellness coach and health advocate myself, I get quite excited when somebody faces these issues head on and works on helping people to overcome them. That is exactly what Purium has done by creating this new product.

Until we can ban these harmful chemicals from being used at all, we can work together to remove glyphosate and other toxins from our daily diet by choosing organic foods whenever possible. This along with taking BIOME MEDIC daily and we have a recipe for success towards our goal of living a longer and healthier life.

There is no way to return to the times of our great grandparents nor would we want to. But just as they overcame their obstacles, I am convinced that we too will work together to create a future that is bright and healthy in our fast-paced and modern world.
