    Bad breath is ruining my life !!!

    Primal Fuel
    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

    My breath smells like a fruit salad. What's your diet?

    If the problem is bacterial in nature than Oil Pulling could help.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    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.
