New Oral Care Appliance Helps Fight Gum Disease

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

ACCS-MSC-128On the whole, people care about their teeth – what they look like, how they feel and how white they can get. However, our pearlies are only half the equation of a healthy smile, as our gums play a larger role than we might think.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 50 percent of American adults have gum disease. This consists of both gingivitis – the inflammation of the gums (early stage), and periodontal disease (advanced stage).

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that keep your teeth in place. More often than not, it is triggered by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque and anaerobic bacteria to stick onto the teeth. The main area of infection is where the teeth meet the gums, or the gum pockets. The bigger the pockets, the larger amount of space bacteria has to take shelter. If left untreated, the gingivitis can turn into advanced-stage gum disease. Gradually, a patient’s gums erode; the teeth loosen, and may even fall out.  Today, more people lose their teeth due to gum disease than tooth decay.

Ozone Generator Therapy – Antioxidant, Sterilizer, Bad Breath Killer

Thursday, June 11th, 2009
  • An Ozone Generator is one of the most powerful sterilizing devices in the world.
  • Ozonated oil acts as a powerful antioxidant to a variety of skin disorders.
  • Ozonated water is highly effective at neutralizing the anaerobic bacteria in the back of your throat that causes bad breath!

OzoneAs you know, I’m constantly on the lookout for the latest scientific breakthroughs on how to prevent bad breath. My latest research has uncovered a device called an Ozonator that not only helps to prevent bad breath, but also helps to deodorize just about any household odor.

First, let me explain a little bit about ozone (O3). It’s a natural, colorless gas with a distinct fresh odor, similar to a day at the beach. When used properly (and my Ozonator was designed so that it can ONLY be used properly), it provides a wide range of benefits. Ozone is a natural molecule made up of three atoms of oxygen. If you want to know what ozone smells like, just close your eyes and imagine you’re smelling the fresh, clean, scent of spring rain that occurs right after a rainstorm. This scent is actually ozone – nature’s own gift to us.

There are two basic ways to use the ozone generated by my Ozone Machine:

1.  To ozonate an oil (create topical solutions, sterilize cuts/burns, etc.)

2.  To ozonate water (drinking, rinsing, sterilizing, deodorizing, curing fungus etc.)

Ozonating an Oil

 When ozone is bubbled into olive oil or safflower oil for long periods of time, the oil eventually thickens, holding the ozone within. When kept refrigerated, this gel will hold the ozone for years. When this ozonated oil is applied to the skin, it has very positive effects on a variety of skin diseases, especially those caused by inflammation. If you have any kind of skin inflammation, I encourage you to try applying ozonated oil to your skin. It definitely won’t hurt and will very likely provide excellent results!

To achieve the minimum concentrations required for an effective ozonated oil, you will need to accumulate at least 24 hours of ozonation. However, since my Ozone Generator runs for only 30 minutes at a time (an important safety precaution!), you will need to reset the Ozone Machine frequently. The good news is that once you’ve ozonated an oil, it lasts in the refrigerator for a long, long time.

Ozonating Water

Ozonated Water has literally dozens of different uses! Remember that ozone is an incredibly powerful sterilizer and disinfectant. Anything that you must clean, neutralize, or deodorize will benefit from ozonated water. The list includes things such as sterilizing sponges, sanitizing bedding, soaking dentures, purifying drinking water, etc. You can even use the ozonator with any of my TheraBreath Oral Rinses to make them even more effective at neutralizing the anaerobic sulfur-producing bacteria that cause bad breath!

Ozone generatorTo ozonate any liquid simply attach one of the included plastic tubes to the ozonator. On the other end of the tube, attach one of the ozonator stones. Place the stone into the liquid that you want to ozonate (whether it’s water, oil, or TheraBreath Rinse) and let the ozonator go to work!

Some other uses of ozonated water include:

  • Sterilizing kitchen/bathroom items
  • Deodorize dirty laundry
  • Control smells
  • Sanitize your bedding
  • Remove pet odors
  • Soak dentures and night guards

Let us know how you’re using the ozonator and we’ll add it to our list.

Until now, natural ozone could only be created by a high-priced, high-end, $600+ ozone generator. What’s more, these things sound like a diesel truck in high gear zooming down the highway! My ozonator costs about 1/6 of the price, and operates with just a quiet humm – mmmm…. much, much nicer!

I’ve compiled a how-to brochure that you can download for free which contains TONS of interesting information about the various uses of Ozone Therapy. The brochure also contains several scientific studies documenting the unique sterilizing and deodorizing benefits of natural ozone. This is a must-read for anybody even remotely interested in ozone therapy or ozone treatment.

Just all the products that I sell, my ozonator comes with a 100% money-back guarantee. If for any reason you’re not happy with this device just return it within 30 days for a complete refund.

The Therabreath System

Our Product Formulations: An Overview

TheraBreath, AktivOxigen, and TheraBrite are the first chlorine dioxide based products to be sold in retail stores. They are based on clinically-proven formulas developed and tested for many years on thousands of patients at the California Breath Clinics by Dr. Harold Katz. (TheraBreath PLUS & PerioTherapy are available only from us on-line or by phone order.)

Many people have tried to copy our products and their formulations, but as hard as they try, they always come up short. The reason: Our products are made with proprietary pharmaceutical-grade chlorine dioxide and specific oxychlor complexes, both in the active and stabilized formats, using technology developed by the leading scientists in this field. Despite what jealous competitors may say, we use chlorine dioxide in our products at concentrations sufficient enough to make us the best-selling, direct to the public brand, both in the U.S. and worldwide. No one comes close.

When GNC (natural heath product retailers) went searching for the BEST oral products for their very selective customers, they chose TheraBreath, TheraBrite, and AktivOxigen from the California Breath Clinics. When Wegmans Supermarkets wanted the finest breath products, they chose TheraBreath, and when Walgreens searched the ClO2 market, they chose TheraBreath as their exclusive professional breath product. When SelfCare Catalog dropped Profresh because of poor sales, they chose AktivOxigen and TheraBrite.

We do not use any alcohol, detergents (sodium lauryl sulfate), saccharin, artificial colors or artificial flavors in any of our formulas. We do not need to use bleach to generate ClO2 (bleach is used in Profresh). And, we don’t need to fool the public by creating strong medicinal or minty masking flavors, because our formulas work!

If you’re looking for definitive scientific proof on which oral product reduces VSC safely and rapidly, just look at these independent tests from June, 2000.

TheraBreath Nasal Sinus Drops:
The first Oxygenating Solution To attack Bad Breath and Mucous/Post Nasal Drip BEYOND the tongue, sinus, throat, and tonsils. All Natural Triple Strength formula prevents anaerobic bacteria from producing volatile sulfur compounds. No preservatives (no allergens like Benzalkonium Chloride) or artificial flavors.

Simply tilt your head back and squeeze out 3-4 drops into each nostril during the day to get to the source of the problem! And, because it’s all natural, there’s no danger in using too much. If you have post nasal drip, allergies, dry mouth, or tonsils, this product, in conjunction with our other clinically-proven oral products, is the best recommended solution.

The ingredients are: Purified and filtered water, Oxyd-8 (proprietary stabilized oxychlor compounds), zinc gluconate, sodium bicarbonate, tea tree oil, essential oil of spearmint, citric acid, sodium benzoate, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil.

There is no ephedra or drugs used in the formula. All of the components are derived from plants or nature.

TheraBreath Nasal-Sinus Spray:
Same powerful formula as our Nasal Sinus Drops, but packaged in a convenient spray bottle. Simply displense 1-2 powerful ‘spritzes’ into your sinuses and feel the oxygenating power of OXYD-8 go to work BEYOND your tongue, sinuses, throat, and tonsils. All Natural Triple Strength formula prevents anaerobic bacteria from producing volatile sulfur compounds. No preservatives (no allergens like Benzalkonium Chloride) or artificial flavors.

Simply place the spray bottle into each nostril and dispense 1-2 ‘spritzes’. With the Nasal Sinus Spray, some patients may notice a slight burning – this is normal and is due to the Tea Tree Oil. If you have post nasal drip, allergies, dry mouth, or tonsils, this product, in conjunction with our other clinically-proven oral products is for YOU!

The ingredients are: Purified and filtered water, Oxyd-8 (proprietary stabilized oxychlor compounds), zinc gluconate, sodium bicarbonate, tea tree oil, essential oil of spearmint, citric acid, sodium benzoate, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil.

The Truth About Bad Breath & What the Symptoms Mean

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

Bad breath is caused by Anaerobic Sulfur Producing Bacteria which normally live WITHIN the surface of the tongue and in the throat. These bacteria are supposed to be there, because they assist humans in digestion by breaking down proteins found in specific foods, mucous or phlegm, blood, and in diseased or “broken-down” oral tissue. Under certain conditions, these bacteria start to break down proteins at a very high rate. Proteins are made up of Amino Acids. Two of the Amino Acids (Cysteine and Methionine) are dense with sulfur.

Sinus Cavity When these “beneficial” bacteria come into contact with these compounds, the odorous and “lousy-tasting” sulfur compounds are released from the back of the tongue and throat, as Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercaptan, and other odorous and bad tasting compounds. These “problem” compounds are often referred to as volatile sulfur compounds (VSC), where volatile means Vaporous and Effervescent, two adjectives which accurately describe their ability to offend other people instantly.

Because my original degree is in Bacteriology, let me explain a very important fact about these “bugs”. They are not “bad guys” – they are not infectious. Everyone in the world has the same group of bacteria in their mouth. You cannot “catch” bad breath from someone else – even by kissing. Since they are part of our normal oral flora, you cannot permanently remove them from your mouth – not by tongue scraping, not by antibiotics, and not by rinses which claim to “lift the bacteria off your tongue”. The only scientifically proven and clinically effective method of halting Halitosis is by attacking the bacteria’s ability to produce VSC and by converting the VSC into non-odorous and non-tasting organic salts. (I should know, I’ve personally treated nearly 10,000 people at my California Breath Clinics and I’ve helped thousands more through my TheraBreath formulas. Take a look at a small fraction of testimonial letters to see What Doesn’t Work!

Sinus Cavity Speaking about bacteria, there is one other fact that you must understand about these bacteria. They are classified as “Anaerobic” – which literally means “Without Oxygen”. They thrive in an environment where Oxygen is NOT present. That is why they DO NOT LIVE ON THE SURFACE OF YOUR TONGUE! They live in between the papillae (fibers) that make up your tongue!

These sulfur compounds are actually by-products of anaerobic bacteria (Fusobacterium and Actinomyces, among others). Everyone needs these bacteria, because they assist the digestion process. But, unfortunately, for some, as yet undetermined reason these particular bacteria are found in higher numbers in those anguished by Bad Breath. (Various theories attribute this to hormonal changes, a history of medications, usually antibiotics or sulfa drugs-which create an imbalance of oral bacteria, or even Genetics-these disorders appear to run in some families.) We do know however, that it seems to be evenly split between men and women.

Conditions under which the problem becomes worse:

Dry Mouth
Although some cases of dry mouth are naturally occurring, most cases are caused by one of these factors; prescription medications (usually prescribed for high blood pressure or depression) antihistamines, and adult beverages, with alcohol in them. (see “Why Regular Products Don’t Work”)

When your mouth is dryer, you have less Saliva. Saliva naturally contains Oxygen, which keeps your mouth healthy and fresh. These bacteria are anaerobic, which simply means that they will thrive and make more sulfur in the presence of little or no oxygen. Thus if you have less Saliva, you have less oxygen, thereby creating an anaerobic environment, perfect for the bacteria to produce more of these odorous and sour/bitter compounds. For people with Dry Mouth, products such as Saliva Stimulation Tablets can help greatly.

Post-Nasal Drip
We know that proteins contain amino acids, which in turn contain sulfur compounds (see text above). When a person has a post nasal drip, mucus drains and coats the back of the tongue and throat, exactly where bacteria live (see diagram above). Since mucus is made up of interlinked strands of protein, the bacteria have a field day, breaking down these proteins into odorous and sour tasting sulfur type compounds. Strong Antihistamines don’t help, because the drying effect of the antihistamines also creates a problem. The only method of ending the odor and taste are to use Oxyd-VIII based oral products. Many of my patients with post nasal drip have claimed great success with use of the Nasal-Sinus Drops.

What About The Sinuses?
After personally treating nearly 9,000 people worldwide, I have yet to see a patient get rid of his bad breath following sinus surgery. First of all, these anaerobic bacteria cannot live in the sinuses. When someone has a sinus infection, one of the common symptoms are intense sinus headaches, caused by the pressure from the infection in the sinus. If you don’t have these powerful headaches, you probably don’t have a sinus problem. The fact is that once someone has an elevated amount of these anaerobic bacteria, they will create the problem from any protein source, including mucous, phlegm, etc, which drain down the back of your throat into the area where these bacteria live.

High Protein Foods
These bacteria love those proteins, and certain foods are packed with them:

Milk and Cheese and most other dairy products. (The fat content does not matter.) If you are lactose intolerant, do not eat or drink these products! Since your system cannot digest them properly, they are available to the bacteria for an extended period of time. A recent research article from the Los Angeles Times (November 1996) on lactose intolerance showed that nearly 67% of all Americans can be classified as “Lactose Intolerant”. This is due to the fact that in a diverse population such as we have here, there is a predilection for Asians, Hispanics, and African-Americans to be lactose intolerant.

Fish are high in proteins. As many people eat a high fish diet, logically they make the problem worse.

Coffee with caffeine (and even without) contains high levels of acids which cause the bacteria to reproduce more rapidly and create a bitter taste for many people. (Virtually any acidic type of food will do this.)

Coffee drinking was one of the problems that my patients used to have. After starting my treatment, they have been able to go back to coffee drinking (in moderation of course) without any bitter tastes afterward.

What Works?
Oxyd-VIII is the active ingredient in TheraBreath products. It prevents the anaerobic bacteria from creating the odorous sulfide and Mercaptan compounds by “adding oxygen” to the environment. The end result is the formation of a “Sulfate”, which has no odor or taste. Most of my patients start out with a Starter Kit and work their way up from there if necessary.
