Halitosis and ACV, II

I received a comment to the entry titled Halitosis and ACV, so I thought others may want to see the additional explanation.
Q: Will ACV be able to freshen your breath effectively? Or do they just mask the smell of bad breath? Also what kind of toxins are you referring to?
A:ACV doesn’t freshen ones breath or mask halitosis, so much as kill the culprits causing or worsening BAD breath or halitosis. It works primarily by killing bad yeast and balancing PH, in addition to its ability to “pull” toxins from the mouth and throat.
ACV improves halitosis because drinking the ACV cocktail solution improves the balance of flora in the gut, which is not only essential to getting rid of halitosis, but also for general health and disease prevention.  A balanced PH and making sure that the body isn’t compromised by battling excess yeast is an important step to make sure the body is capable of efficiently fighting the bacteria causing halitosis. Much of the coating on the tongue and in the mouth stems from the gut. Improve the flora in the mouth and gut, and it will be much more difficult for halitosis, bacteria and other “bad smell” generators, to inhabit and set up shop. That’s the most critical reason for using ACV in treating halitosis.
Toxins
The toxins I referred to in the post are just general toxins. The more toxic a body, the more likely to have bad breath or halitosis. At the very least, the more toxic a body, the more the body is occupied in protecting the body from toxins instead of healing the cause of halitosis
Toxins come in all forms. Yeast creates toxins, the body’s functions and bi-products create and attempt to expel toxins. The human body is all about functioning and keeping it toxin-free.  Halitosis itself could be a bi-product of the body trying to detoxify, as it is a common symptom during detox programs.
The skin, lungs, kidneys, and liver all have the primary function of removing and/or excreting toxins…whatever they may be…whatever the body can’t process or may be harmful to the body’s functions.
ACV also cuts down on environments that encourage bacterial and fungal growth, thus cuts down on halitosis. Mucous, for example, is a big harbinger of toxins and bacteria, and ACV cuts through mucous supremely well, thus removing prime real estate where bacteria, yeast, etc. would typically dwell. Sinus infections, ie mucous, has often been suggested as a reason for halitosis, which will be addressed in a separate post.

Hello world!

This is my first blog posting for NeemFirst. Woo!

This blog is about Neem, an amazing tree with amazing applications. Enough with the “amazing”, but it really is. Neem is a tree relatively unknown in the U.S., especially for its health and insect-control applications.  Health and insect-control from the same herb? Yeah – keep reading.

It’s one of the most diversified herbs out there, categorized among the safest, least toxic of substances. Neem kills bacteria, candida, fungus, virus; stimulates the immune system; kills and deters hundreds of insects; and it’s soothing to the skin, with increased tissue elasticity (ie less wrinkles).  Amazing, right?  The applications could be limitless. But I didn’t learn about Neem until years of exposure to the arena of vitamins and herbs.

Anyway, I’m in my 30’s, and have endured some “strange” health challenges for about 10 years, one after the other, like layers in an onion. Regular medical doctors told me I was “fine”.  Nothing showed in my bloodwork, which meant that nothing was wrong with me (at least not physically, my friends would say). But I knew the body wasn’t meant to feel as awful as mine did. So, amidst my relatives’ whispers that I was a hypochondriac, I set out on a journey to find some answers. Neem was one of those answers.  This Blog is part of my website, www.neemfirst.com, created to inform others looking for their own answers. Neem could be it. What could be more perfect than a blog?

Please join me in discovering Neem, what Neem can do for you and the hundred (+) ways Neem can be used to improve health: for the body, a beloved pet, your home and garden.

See you in the Blog-o-Sphere!
