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, I: bacteria in the mouth, set g

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.

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.
