Homeopathic Bad Breath Cures


Most of us know that the offensive odor coming out of someone’s mouth can be associated with poor oral hygiene, gingivitis, caries, tonsilitis, tonsillar plaques, various foods, tobacco, dehydration, and various diseases in the body.  Homeopathy can be an effective cure for chronic bad breath because it treats the individual as a whore rather than targeting certain parts/organs.  Sometimes for a permanent bad breath cure, it can work if the physical, emotional, mental and social spheres of a person are targeted.  If these spheres are not in equilibrium, that’s when things tend to go awry. 

When using homeopathy to treat halitosis, it is important to note the other symptoms that a person is having.  Sometimes excess stress can attribute to bad breath.   In order to figure out the best remedy, one should take these precautions beforehand:

  • Correct oral hygiene in the morning/bedtime
  • Clearing saliva and nasal secretions often as well as clearing the throat
  • Regular dental checkups for filling pockets or erosions, and avoidance of gum/dental problems
  • Keep hydrated to prevent dry mouth and wash away food particles
  • Use tongue scraper

Also, you should avoid:

  • Cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and other stimulants
  • Dairy products
  • Garlic, onions
  • Chocolates and other sweets

Also, underlying health conditions should be ruled out by doing the following:

  • Endoscopy (sinuses)
  • CT scan (nasal obstruction, lung issues, etc)
  • Blood tests (diabetes, infections, allergies, metabolic diseases)
  • Urine tests (diabetes, ketone bodies, metabolic diseases)

Temporary treatments:

  • Cleansers, pastes, mouthwash, mouth deodorants, tongue scrapers/wipers
  • Chewing gum increases salivary gland production
  • Cloves, camphor, cardamom, green pudhina leaves, guava leaves, betel leaves can mask the foul stench

Permanent treatment can only be successful if the root cause of the halitosis is diagnosed.  These treatments should be given for issues like recurring colds, sinusitis, dental issues, gingivitis, stomatitis, indigestion, and so on. 

Homeopathic remedies for bad breath most commonly are: Asafoetida, Baptisia, Baryta mur, Benzoic acid, Bromium, Calc carb, carbolic acid, Carbo animalis, Carbo veg, Crot – hor, Graphites, Hepa sulf, Kali sulp, Merc sol, Nat sulp, Nit acid, Opium, Plantago, Psorinum, Pulsatilla, Rhus tox, Sepia, Silicea, Staphysagria, Sulphur, Tarentula, Tellurium, Thuja, and Tuberculinum.

    Great article! I love my neti pot and recommend nasal irrigation all the time! No, it’s not exactly killer party conversation but good habits w/ the sinuses can go a long way toward good health.

    I am a huge believer in natural cures, and in not jumping to meds or surgery too quickly. However I must say that if things get to the “chronic” stage don’t mess around. See your doctor and then if you get a ct scan make sure you know all your options (it used to be that sinus surgery was the only option. but now there are less invasive choices like balloon sinuplasty).

    That’s my two cents. Take care everybody and keep those nasal passages clean!
