How To Get Rid Of Bad Breath Quickly

What are the reasons for bad breath and how to get rid of it ?

The sense of smell is hugely underestimated and what many people don’t
realize is that it has a massive effect on us when we form subconscious
opinions. So no matter what you dress like and no matter how stunning
your native looks are, if you don’t smell good, then you might as well
wash all the previous goodness down the drain.

You can have a good wash and ut on cologne or perfume to make your body
and clothes smell good but when it comes to your breath, it’s the inside
that counts and makes the difference. Eliminating odors from your
breath and ensuring you make a good impression on the people that you
can’t avoid getting up close to must be dealt with from the inside out.
There are a variety of ways of preventing it or curing it and here they
are in a nutshell.

Prevention is better than cure:-

This has always been my rule of thumb in all matters, but particularly
the problem of halitosis, because essentially it’s a health issue and
good health means good breath, so should be treated as such. Depending
on the cause, there are different manners of stopping it before it has
started and if you can get at the root cause, it’s the first step
towards getting rid of it altogether.

1. The food you eat- 1: Some foods are just naturally smelly,
like onions and garlic and if you have an important engagement, then
don’t eat them for 48 hours before. However, the medical benefits from
these two super-foods are so great, I don’t recommend giving them up
altogether – just make sure your nearest and dearest are eating them too
and no one will notice.

2. The food you eat- 2: Oranges and orange juice is also blamed
for causing bad breath, and although it’s not scientific, anything that
has a high acid content can turn your stomach and blood into an
over-acidic environment and this can cause acid-reflux, which itself
leads to breath that smells. Blood should not be acidic and there are
many ways of solving that, but if you don’t want to take medication, try
apple cider vinegar (one tablespoon a day) and apple juice if you feel
the acid rising. This may sound odd, but it really works.

3. What you drink: Coffee and alcohol give you an odor on your
breath for a couple of reasons. First of all they are toxins and the
body secretes enzymes to fight them which are pungent, giving you an
unpleasant aroma. Also, they dehydrate you and also your mouth,
depriving it of healthy saliva and allowing offending bacteria to grow.
So, if you’re really serious about this (and your general health) you’ll
give them both up.  If not, drink lots of water afterwards and get some
exercise to get your blood running faster and the bad chemicals out of
your body.

4. Poor dental care: It’s obvious but has to be mentioned. Brush
your teeth twice a day, floss and wash your tongue (with your
toothbrush) and if you still get a pong, try chewing sugar-free gum
(particularly that which is sweetened by xylitol) vigorously for ten
minutes after you eat and brush. That should do the trick.

5. Health problems: There may be an underlying health issue if
you can’t get rid of your bad breath, so have a medical check-up.
Diabetes, lung problems, acid reflux and liver disease can all cause a
stink on the breath and maybe it will prove to be a good warning to sort
out the rest of your body!

6. Gum disease: This is related to dental care, but not always
and can be due to the need for some lacking vitamins and minerals. Take a
supplement, focusing mainly on Vitamin C.

7. Cure: Finally, if it’s an emergency and you have no time to
prevent before a cure, then another brush, some mouthwash that’s labeled
clearly as an antiseptic one, chewing sugar-free gum and some oral
sprays you can find in the pharmacy should do the trick in a temporary
manner, which will give you some breathing space (!!) to look into a way
of preventing it and getting rid of stinky breath permanently.
