  • Bad breath is ruining my life !!!

    I already have enough trouble with social anxiety as it is but bad breath makes it 10x worse. For almost all of my life I thought you could tell if you have bad breath by just cupping your hand and huffing into it. But then I found that doesn't work and the best way is to lick the your wrist and then smell it. And it smells awful whenever I do it. I'm not sure if it's because I'm fasting or if it's because I just naturally have bad breath (my parents both have bad breath).

    What can I do ? I've tried chewing parsley and fennel seeds. Parsley doesn't work at all for me and fennel seeds work for a very short period of time, like 15 minutes. I use tongue scrapper. I floss. I drink 1 gallon of water each day.

    What can I do ? Someone please help

      If the problem is bacterial in nature than Oil Pulling could help.

        I only eat primal foods. I'm very careful when it comes to onions and garlic. My breath smells bad even if I don't eat them for days.

        Does your breath smell like fruit salad even when you fast ?

          Yeah. Maybe check for fungi or bacteria, or candida. What's your tongue look like?

                  Use a tongue scraper and try oil pulling.

                    I use a tongue scrapper and it doesn't help at all.

                        Do you eat a very low carbohydrate/ketogenic diet? The worst breath I've ever had in my life was when I did a 2 month stint of keto. EVERYONE was complaining. Family, friends, people were force-feeding me gum. I've never had a breath issue in my life, but keto is like an open invitation for awful smells, particularly breath and urine.

                          You are dealing with some kind of candida overgrowth, correct? Having a film on the tongue is often a sign of this, I think. Oil pulling helped me a bit.

                            I'll help ya.

                            Grab a cotton ball and wet it. Rub it all around your mouth, teeth, gums, tongue thoroughly. I mean thoroughly! Let the cotton ball pick up everything it touches even if it doesn't feel right . Rinse out your mouth with water, and repeat the cotton ball cleaning again and again. Bam! you should now have a perfectly clean mouth.

                            I find my gums more redder and teeth smoother and white from just using a mere cotton ball.

                            This works cause the cotton ball absorbs all sorts of hidden nasty stuff that mouth washes, toothbrushes, toothpastes, and oils (from oil-pulling) can never pick up.

                            Forgot to add. Use hot tap water for a more through clean.

                            Remember, cotton wipes away all moisture and oil were bacteria can grow.

                              Except for between the gum and the tooth.
