halitosis cause: constipation summary (cont)

Halitosis, Constipation & Toxins: Everyone has toxins, and some may say, “So what?”  But the point to stress here is, if you’re constipated (less than 2 bowel movements per day), then you are MORE toxic than normal. And, you’re placing overwhelming stress on all of the body’s processes. The effects of constipation will catch up to you. It may take decades, perhaps 20 years, but the body does begin to fail. How could it not?

The colon, kidneys, and liver are amazing, and could reverse damage and eliminate excess toxins, if given a chance. But if constipation persists, these organs have no rest, no opportunity to spend time on “extra” work like cleaning built-up waste and toxins. There’s no chance to overcome. Thus, auto-toxification. And for some, halitosis.  And beyond halitosis, colon cancer is also a significant concern.

Colon cancer is one of the most frequent types of cancer, if not the most frequent type. The number goes up each year. Constipation, and the resulting toxins, plaque build-up (housing the “nasty beasties”), and reduced nutrient absorption, are the primary common denominators in colon cancer. 

How Do You Know if You’re Toxic?
Would you know that you’re “toxic”? Not unless you were familiar with this information and that halitosis can result. Most likely, you’d just recognize that you were tired all of the time, not thinking clearly, no energy, reduced sex-drive, frequent illnesss (2+/yr), and other inconvenient symptoms that, on their own don’t seem like much, but combined…Bingo! Something’s NOT right.

But, if you DO have halitosis, please recognize that halitosis could very well be a symptom of something greater. Most people view halitosis as an independent condition, unrelated to whatever else may be occurring in the body. Halitosis would not occur in a “perfectly healthy” person, as the body was meant to function.

halitosis cause: constipation summary & toxins

Halitosis / Constipation Summary & Toxins
In summary, Constipation causes a nasty downward spiral of ill-health.  Halitosis could be the least of your worries in advanced situations of auto-toxification (when your body essentially is poisoning itself due to inefficient detoxification thru the bowel, lungs, skin, kidneys, liver, etc.). Halitosis could be part of the detox process.

For example, it’s not uncommon for people to experience temporary halitosis while Fasting, a  program that will detox the body by simultaneously releasing great amounts of toxins from the organs, previously accumulated and stored over the years.  In this case, it’s obvious that halitosis is part of detoxing. But in life, day-to-day, year-to-year, it’s not so obvious that halitosis is caused by toxins.

halitosis cause, I: constipation

Constipation = Backed-Up Plumbing = Playground for Bad Bacteria = Halitosis
Constipation (fewer than 2-3 bowel movements per day) is a serious threat to health, and will affect every condition in the body, including halitosis, toxic load and susceptibility to systemic candidiasis (yeast mutated to resemble fungus, pervades entire body). High toxic load (which can happen to anyone with these conditions) means a challenged lymph system, liver and kidneys, and typically results in halitosis at some point.

Poor liver and kidney health have shown to cause halitosis, too. If you have excessive yeast or candidiasis, the strength of your immune system is assuredly low. Which means that you also lack the proper balance of flora in the gut, a major defense against sources of halitosis.

And all of this contributes to….a population explosion of the bad bacteria, fungus. A side-effect of these is additional mucous along the intestinal lining (which turns into black tar-like plaque and will provide a home for these nasty beasties, parasites, and some theorize disease such as cancer, too; as well as reduce absorption of nutrients. And increase the probably of catching colds, and virus outbreaks. And, of course, halitosis.

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.

more on bad breath / halitosis

I wrote in a previous post that halitosis is a symptom of other conditions.  And also that the way to get rid of halitosis is to attack the issues causing it, instead of treating the symptom.

When trying to fix halitosis, consider your overall health. Are you taking medicines? Are you fairly toxic? (most everyone is in the U.S.) Do you eat a lot of red meat and fried foods? Do you eat / drink a lot of un-fermented dairy? Do you drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water each day? And more water when you exercise or spend time outdoors? Your halitosis could be exacerbated by medications, toxicity overload in the liver and kidneys, complications from excess mucous from un-fermented dairy, and dehydration.

The dehydration is critical and could be a major component in improving halitosis. Drink water, drink water, drink water. Good water. Half your body weight in ounces, every day. And if you add lemon, you’ll do double-duty by cleansing your lymph system to allow your body to release toxins (and bonus! lose weight, too).

Breathing is another simple and powerful detoxifier. Even as simple as 20 super slow deep belly breaths before you go to sleep. This helps relax you, and prepares the body for sleep and meditation.

…ok. more tomorrow.
