Geriatric Breath vs. Halitosis

Geriatric Breath is NOT Halitosis
Just a sidebar: although the following is not halitosis, it’s a good example of breath as an indicator of health. Geriatric breath (typically found in older people), is not due to age as most think. This non-halitosis breath is actually due to poor health condition, specific to organs loosing functionality, and the break-down of the body’s processes (usually associated with old age). If you’re older, and in good health with fully-functioning organs, etc., then this particular geriatric, non-halitosis breath won’t develop.

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.

halitosis cause: ill-health 2

Halitosis / ill-health 2
Halitosis is a red flag that something is going on.

It’s no coincidence that the checklist for a healthy animal is similar to the human subconsious checklist for an attractive partner. Halitosis is not on that list because halitosis is a sign that there is some type of  “ill” health. Perhaps the illness is not big, and not even considered an “illness,” but halitosis is still a signal that something is going on. Let halitosis be a signal to you. You can act to fix halitosis with natural products like neem, a natural anti-biotic and natural bactericide, fungicide, and virus killer, before it gets worse (or permanent), because halitosis doesn’t go away without dedicated and direct action. (You can do it!!)

halitosis cause: ill-health

Halitosis / ill-health
Halitosis is a sign of ill-health. A “perfectly healthy” body, as it was meant to function, would not have halitosis. It’s an obvious statement, but most people don’t connect halitosis with ill-health, especially if they are otherwise healthy.

Think of halitosis in this light: an animal’s health is determined by the brightness of their eyes, the strength of their lungs, the health of their gums/teeth/tongue, quality of skin/fur, muscle tone, feet…and their breath. Halitosis: there’s a difference between typical doggie breath and halitosis doggie breath. For the human animal, it’s the same. Most doctors have forgotten that, and rarely check these basic indicators during a check-up.  But halitosis is a red flag that something is going on.

Neem naturally boosts and strengthens the immune system, excellent when dealing with any general ill-health issue.

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.

…and now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…info on Halitosis 
Sugar – Bacteria – Halitosis 
There is an undeniable link between sugar and bacteria, and thus between sugar and halitosis. But if this halitosis connection isn’t enough motivation to stop consuming sugar, know that sugar also throws off your entire processes and hormone production, mutiliates your immune system, and causes weight gain, in addition to feeding bacteria and yeast. And I mean all sugar is considered bad when you’re in a halitosis predicament: bread, white rice, wheat, flour, fruits, and alcohol (except tequila). Most carbs all turn into sugar, which keeps halitosis sticking around. The same can be said of the relationship between candidiasis (yeast) and sugar. Do a search on my blog for sugar substitutes to maintain good health and keep halitosis at bay. They’re good for you, AND good tasting. Xylitol has the double bonus of killing bacteria, so it’s an excellent choice for battling halitosis. My favorite is Agave syrup. Both are obviously excellent sugar substitutes for diabetics, too.
