Halitosis / ill-health 3

Halitosis: Different Causes = Same Symptom
Although many people have halitosis, the halitosis symptoms could have developed due to different factors of “ill-health”. For example, if your immune system is weak, bacteria may run rampant in your mouth; the result: halitosis. Or you may have digestive weakness and improper balance of flora in the gut; not enouth pro-biotics; the result: halitosis. Or, perhaps your PH levels are too acidic, weakening your body in general, and unable to properly control bacteria in the mouth; again, halitosis. Or maybe your body can’t keep up with your current intake of sugar and breads, which feeds bacteria, and could result in halitosis; sugars also upset the PH in the mouth – again, halitosis. Or, as already discussed in this blog, chronic constipation may have set your body on a track of auto-toxification; a combination of typical detoxing and reduced efficiency of elements above, and you’re a candidate for halitosis.

Neem is a natural bactericide, fungicide, and virus killer and can help improve your health under many different conditions and symptoms, including various culprits of halitosis.

Acidic Body is Prone to Disease, and Halitosis 
An acidic body is highly prone to disease and the causes of halitosis. To stay healthy and fight back against disease and halitosis, lower your intake of acidic foods: dairy, red meat, sugar, bread, white rice, vinegars [except for ACV]. To lower your body’s acidity, improve your health and win a step in the battle against halitosis, I also recommend drinking the ACV cocktail (search for it on the blog), as well as drinking fresh lemon in your water. The ACV lowers acidity, thereby creating a less favorable environment for halitosis and illness. ACV removes toxins from the mouth / throat when gargled and spit; balances the PH when consumed; AND kills yeast too.
Your body’s acidity is set for the day approximately 3 hours after rising. So drink 20 oz of lemon water before then. And for those thinking, “Lemon?” Yes, lemon (and all citrus) goes thru a chemical conversion in the body, and is in fact alkiline in the body. You can test your acidity with lithmus paper kits to see if acidity is a concern. And there’s also water that helps with alkalinization. Evamore, I think. My doctor recommends a 70/30 ratio favoring alkaline for daily intake. Here’s a chart to give you a better idea of acid/alkaline foods. It’s a good step toward hitting your halitosis.
