Obviously, nobody likes bad breath.
The bigger thing is it’s typically an underlying sign that there’s something not going right in your body. It tends to be a bacterial imbalance or lack of detoxification.
So if things tend to sit in your system or if there’s an imbalance of good probiotics and bacteria and microbes in your body, those are typically what is actually causing some of your issues.
So to start I’m going to go over the six things that you need to do.
1. Get more probiotics in your diet
Consume more probiotic-rich foods, especially things like grass-fed yoghurt and kefir, and take a quality probiotic supplement.
For many of you guys, you want to double-down and take a double dose of probiotics a day.
But probiotics, without a doubt, can help kill off yeast and bad bacteria and those sort of microbes that can be causing bad breath. So again, probiotics are crucial.
2. Use peppermint essential oil
Peppermint oil gives that lasting fresh breath taste, has a pleasant odour, and also has certain types of compounds in it that actually can help kill off bad bacteria in your body.
What I like to do is actually I make a homemade toothpaste, mixing probiotics, coconut oil, peppermint oil, and a little bit of baking soda.
You can make a homemade toothpaste that way that actually gives you some great tasting breath. You can even add just a drop of peppermint oil to your water a few times a day, and it can be used in that way.
3. Use some baking soda to get rid of bad breath
In fact, after a meal, you can just put in a pinch of baking soda.
Now you typically want to do this between meals, not during meals, but a little bit of baking soda as well can help eliminate bad breath.
The reason is baking soda is very alkaline.
4. Drink more green juices
Now you don’t want to do juices that have fruit because those will actually make your breath worse.
But doing green juices, especially wheatgrass juice, things that are high in chlorophyll, like kale and parsley and cilantro, a lot of those leafy greens, cucumber and celery, those can help eliminate bad breath.
5. Parsley eliminates bad breath
Parsley is known for helping eliminate the odour from garlic.
So if you have too much garlic or something or too much vinegar and your breath smells like that, parsley has been shown to help neutralize odour.
Part of the reasons is it is one of the highest herbs and vegetables in chlorophyll, if not the highest.
You can just chew on some parsley after a meal or add it to a salad or juice it. Those are great ways to add parsley to your diet.
6. Drink more water with lemon or lemon essential oil
You know water really helps keep things moving in your systems, helps to flush things out.
So again I recommend taking your body weight in water, ounces of water. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you want to be drinking 75 ounces of water a day. Make sure you’re getting plenty of water.
Either a little bit of lemon juice or a drop or two of lemon essential oil, which can help continue to clear out candida and some of those things out of your system that can be causing bad breath.
So those are the six things you do want to do.
I want to mention this finally.
The things that can really cause bad breath is consuming too much sugar.
That plain and simple is one of the biggest things that will cause bad breath. So again, reducing your sugar intake, loading up more on healing foods like vegetables will also help.
If you do that, you’re going to see great results.
