Are you suffering from bad breath? Here are some natural remedies and supplements that you should do to fight bad breath.
We say all the time that spices are amazing and we don’t use enough of them. Cardamom is a powerful, potent antiseptic and it even helps destroy oral pathogenic bacteria. That’s bad bacteria.
If you want a quick and easy way to fight the bacteria that causes bad breath, those germs in your mouth, chew cardamom seeds. It is absolutely amazing.
I believe in America we don’t get enough spice in our diet. So, spice things up to transform your health. Cardamom is not only great for your oral health.
Coconut oil pulling
This is one of my favorite secrets to oral health, not just bad breath but whitening your teeth also. So, what you do is you take approximately a teaspoon or even a tablespoon of coconut oil. Now, I know we all love virgin or extra virgin coconut oil, but you can even use refined coconut oil.
The Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling started with sesame oil. You put oil in your mouth and you wish it, make sure it gets between your teeth, your gums. It does powerful things for your body. It fights tooth decay and it helps freshen your breath, even whiten your teeth. And a healthy mouth equals a healthy body. It pulls toxins out of the body. I recommend you do oil pulling.
The Ayurvedic medicinal way to get toxins out of your mouth, fight tooth decay is oil pulling with coconut oil.
Peppermint oil is one of the best fighters of bad breath and bacteria in the mouth. You can take peppermint oil and just drop it under your tongue. Now, it is very strong, so one or two drops is a lot. Swish it around or you can add it to another oil, use it as a mouthwash, perhaps in oil pulling.
I like to add peppermint oil to store-bought toothpaste, or as you’ll learn, it can be a great ingredient. It’s a potent antimicrobial. One drop does a tremendous amount for your mouth and it’s also great for the gut. So, if you swallow the peppermint oil, you’re going to get benefits for digestion as peppermint can relieve gas, bloating and cramps. Peppermint oil is so great, really cooling to the body. It’s also great for tooth pain.
A lot of times your bad breath is simply caused by dehydration. When you hydrate, you help your body dilute the toxins and even the microbes that cause bad breath. Dehydration equals bad breath. Make sure to consume purified or filtered water.
Have you ever wondered why when you eat a restaurant they’ll garnish the meal with parsley? They often are using a sort of an ancient trick to help people freshen their breath.
Parsley was a poor man’s breath mint. Well, I would say for a rich man’s health. You can chew on parsley and the chlorophyll will actually destroy bad bacteria and freshen your breath.
So, parsley when you chew it or even consume some juice, you can spit it out but also you can eat it. The chlorophyll in parsley helps kill the bacteria responsible for bad breath. And parsley is also good to detoxify the body and strengthen the liver.
Natto, which is Asian fermented soy that uses the probiotic Bacillus subtilis. Bad breath starts in the gut. Natto, which can be used as a condiment, helps to destroy fungal overgrowth, bacterial overgrowth and it is powerful for digestion and the side benefit, it freshens your breath. This doesn’t happen overnight. It’s not going to be the same as putting peppermint oil in your mouth, but it will build your gut flora, which will helps fight bad breath.
So, consume probiotic-rich foods–sauerkraut, miso, natto, cultured dairy products if you consume dairy, kombucha, kvass, apple cider vinegar all good to fight the germs that cause bad breath.
Look for probiotics that contain soil-based organizations. I like a broad spectrum probiotic that contains Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus clausii, Saccharomyces boulardii and Lactobacillus plantarum in a base of fermented foods. Probiotics boost your gut. Bad breath starts in the gut. Probiotic consumption over time can help reduce the toxins that are in your mouth that can be detected, believe it or not, in a breath test. So, consume probiotics.
Milk thistle seed is amazing for the liver. It has a compound known as silymarin, which helps to strengthen and purify the liver. It’s got a slightly bitter nature to it, which means that it’s really good for the liver.
Consuming milk thistle, making it in an herbal infusion like a tea or in supplement form is really great for your liver and it’s great for bad breath.
Organic green juice powder
Consuming a green superfood powder or a green juice powder every day in your smoothie, in carrot juice or other juices or just in water is a great way to get chlorophyll into your system and chlorophyll is a potent fighter of bad bacteria, purifier of the body and helps to freshen your breath.
Cardamom, chew on the seeds. It kills bacteria.
Coconut oil, a teaspoon to a tablespoon in oil pulling, swish it around your mouth for 5, 15 or even 20 minutes, ancient Ayurvedic secret.
Peppermint essential oil, one drop on your toothpaste or in water or just one drop on your tongue if you can handle it.
Drink more water, staying hydrated helps to prevent bad breath.
Parsley is great to consume, just chew on it. The chlorophyll naturally fights bacteria and freshens breath.
Eat probiotic-rich foods–miso, natto, fermented beverages, yogurt, and kefir are great because they also contain calcium to build strong and healthy teeth.
You want to look for a broad spectrum probiotic to support gut health, kill the bad germs.
Milk thistle purifies the liver and an organic green juice or superfood powder gives you chlorophyll and minerals to fight bad breath, strengthen your mouth and gums.
