INGREDIENTS: Parsley OR your doctor!
INSTRUCTIONS: If all else fails, go to the doctor. I had really bad breath, and it was because I had a tumor. Upset stomach, foods eaten, tooth decay, and real illness are all expressed in your breath. Parsley (chewed fresh)works if it's upset stomach or food. The rest require medical intervention.

Ingredients: Hydrogen Peroxide
Instructions: I have suffered for many years with this terrible problem. I have prayed for a cure and can tell you honestly that I tried everything. It was so bad people would offer me mints or gum. I knew I had a problem, but I did not know how to fix it.Well one day looking on the internet, I saw "hydrogen peroxide 3%" used as a mouthwash. I figured what the heck, one more thing to try. After I tried it, I could not believe the results. I actually brushed my tongue and it worked immediately. It is safe yo use and so inexpensive. Best of luck!

Name of Remedy: Bad Breath
Ingredients: Bicarbonate Soda
Instructions: Brush your teeth with a little pinch of the soda, using a regular tooth paste after and it does the trick. Meaning, it will stop the bad breathe from coming through. What i personally try and do is, brush my teeth with the soda in the morning and in the evening, floss (properly), brush with regular tooth paste, rinse and then rinse again using lukewarm water and salt. To maintain a healthy gum and fresh breath means investing a lot of time towards looking after it, flossing and cleaning properly (a good five minutes) twice and day - morning and evening. Good Luck.

Ingredients: acidophilus and bifidus (probiotic)
Instructions: After looking on this site for a remedy for bad breath, I came across a suggestion to try to "florabalance". Florabalance isn't
sold in my area but I was able to try acidophilus and bifidus (probiotic) and it worked. For years my dentist couldn't find the cause of my
bad breath because I have excellent oral hygiene. This problem has plagued me all my life and has been so embarrassing. I was so happy to come across this probiotics that restores and maintains intestinal flora. Clearly my problem wasn't oral hygiene it was something
internal--intestinal. I was having problems with digestion. I prayed to God for as long as I can remember for help with this problem and after 25 years I feel so free!! I really hope this works for someone else.

Ingredients: A product from health food stores called "Flora Balance" a
dietary supplement of Bacillus Laterospores BOD strain. Made by Bio
-tech USA.

An Amish herbalist told me my son had a yeast infection in the lining of his stomach. First we tried the acidopholis but it only worked as long as he took it but when he quite taking it, P.U The Flora Balance worked after 1 bottle. But take it for a while and see the differnce it makes. Also cut out bread, milk (use soy milk), fruit juice and sugars as these breed yeast. Believe me it is worth it! Basically this balances the yeast in your intestins/body. We had tried everything from the time he was 3 years old until he was 18 years old. True bad breath is caused by something more than mouth bacteria. The kind of breath
this kid had could kill a moose! None of his Doctors seemed to understand how devastating this was!

The majority of bad breath comes from bacteria on your tongue not the plaque on your teeth. To remove those odorful micro-organisms, use a spoon to scrape your tongue a few times making sure to get the far back where most of them dwell. Check out what comes off, it's not toopretty. They do sell special tongue scrapers in stores but a spoon works fine.

Ingredients: Unwaxed dental floss, tea tree oil

Instructions: Put enough tea tree oil in the dental floss container so that the whole spool of dental floss gets some tea tree oil on it. Floss once a day.


Chew some fresh parsley after every meal. This works! Why do you think they started putting fresh parsley on your plate for garnish at restaurants(especially garlic and fish dishes)? By the way, this is the main ingredient in those breath capsules you can buy at the drug store(the only difference is they extract the oil).

HI my suggestion for bad breath is tea tree oil. two drops on your tooth brush with your tooth paste. make sure you brush you tongue well too.its fantastic. Daynna F Westbank, BC. CANADA

pinapple juice
drink and the garlic is gone.amazing really.
