Colleen, the owner of Finding our way home opens up about her daughter Kennedy in her TheraBreath review and giveaway. “I mostly wanted to try the TheraBreath brand with Kennedy.  Kennedy does not eat anything by mouth anymore and gets very bad breath.  She has a hard time with toothpastes because they get so foamy and that makes her anxious as she is afraid of swallowing it and can not spit it out.  In the past I have been using a mouthwash on her toothbrush but it never has really taken care of the bad breath.  Plus so many are so strong of flavors (even the children’s) that I have to dilute them.” Find out if we were able to help Kennedy by reading the entire post here.

The Relationship Between Tonsils and Bad Breath

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Huge Tonsils!!!!!Many people who suffer from bad breath are urgently seeking the reason for their bad breath. There are many theories about how bad breath arises and one common myth is that it comes from the stomach, but this is just a myth – it is not fact. The truth is that the majority of bad breath comes from the back of the tongue. However, there is a connection between your tonsils and bad breath too.

Before we discuss tonsils and bad breath, you need to have a good idea of whether that is your problem. There is a very small chance that your tonsils are the source of your bad breath. In fact, 80-90% of bad breath is due to bacteria on the tongue and only 3-5% of bad breath is a result of the tonsils. Therefore, before you jump the gun and begin suspecting your tonsils, there are a couple ways to rule out your tongue.

Grapefruit Seed Extract: Prevent Halitosis, Post Nasal Drip and Tonsil Stones

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

grapefruit seed extract

Bad Breath, post nasal drip, and tonsil stones are all common problems that people have.  What else do they have in common?  Grapefruit seed extract is an extremely versatile compound that can help cure/prevent these issues. 

 Overall, grapefruit seed extract is great for prevention purposes.  It helps prevent caries/tooth decay, gingivitis/gum disorders, plaque, sore throats and flu viruses.  It also helps with allergies, bladder infections, bacterial cystitis, incontinence, chronic urethritis, candida/fungal/yeast infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, hypotension, chronic inflammation, coughs, laryngitis, diarrhea, earaches, flatulence, gastritis, gastric/duodenal ulcers (H. pylori), parasites, phlegm/mucus, the respiratory system, sinusitis/nasal issues, tonsillitis, thrush, toxic shock syndrome, virulent staph infection, and ulcerative stomatitis

Tonsil stones is a condition that many people have– it is not as uncommon as you might think.  For more information on tonsil stones, its causes and cures, click here.  Alcohol and dairy products can also contribute to the formation of tonsil stones.  All of the aforementioned dental health issues can cause bad breath. The reason as to why grapefruit seed extract works to help these issues is because it kills the bacteria causing plaque, bad breath, and so on.  This extract is antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral.

Grapefruit seed extract is handy because it is a natural cure with a low toxicity, but it is not recommended to take it longer than a short period of time.  Also, this extract may defeat the bacteria/yeast causing a bad breath smell, but the root of the bad breath problem may still exist.  People should also monitor their intake of red meat, processed foods, and other foods that encourage bad breath.  It will also be harder to see improvement if you are eating sugar and carbohydrates, since these can fuel the bad breath-causing bacteria. 

Grapefruit seed extract has been diluted in mouthwash solutions, in order to promote healthy gums and fresh breath. For information on how to use this extract to prevent or cure bad breath, tonsil stones, post nasal drip, etc., consult a professional who works with natural cures to see what best suits you.

What are some other uses that you probably didn’t know?  Grapefruit seed extract can be useful to prevent infection and relieve pain during tooth extraction, and it can be used to help clean your toothbrush.

This Gadget Can Test for Bad Breath!

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

breath test

So, it’s common knowledge that bad breath isn’t something that people are too fond of.  It can hurt friendships, work relationships, romances, and so on.  Allegedly, Barack Obama wakes up ‘stinky and snory’, according to his wife Michelle!

Now, in the United Kingdom, a machine that is 50 times more sensitive than the human nose exists that can supposedly get rid of halitosis – for good!  This gas chromatography machine measures and identifies the three primary types of bad breath-causing bacteria.  It doesn’t just say if someone has halitosis, but it specifically identifies the kinds of molecules that are causing the problem.  This helps dental professionals target the halitosis more precisely.  This machine was developed in Australia, and it costs around £8,000 (which is over $12,000 in America).   The machine works by having patients give a breath sample into a plastic syringe, and it usually gives results within 15 minutes. 

After diagnosing the bad breath, the dentists recommend nasal flushes, medicated mouthwash, etc., in order to banish the anaerobic bacteria causing the bad breath.  Depending on where the anaerobic bacteria is located (i.e. mouth, throat, or nose), it gives off different smells.  The tongue is usually the culprit if the bad breath is coming from the mouth, since the smell could be comng from proteins being broken down into amino acids.  In the throat, bad breath often comes from the tonsils, from certain growths that are usually formed by food debris.  Tonsil stones are not uncommon.  Through the nose, sinus infections and excess mucus (post nasal drip) often cause bad smells.
