    • ANSWER:
      From what I've heard, liquid chlorophyll was marketed as everything from diet aid to deodorant back in the 1950's, but the fad died out because it didn't actually work. A big company (Dupont, maybe) found out how to make a synthetic version of chlorophyll and decided to market it to try and make money off their discovery, but tests by impartial laboratories found it didn't actually do anything...

  4. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of my bad breath?
    Ok, everyday I rinse with mouth wash (Scope) for 30 seconds and gargle with mouth wash for 30 seconds. I also brush my teeth for 3 minutes in the morning and at night. And still, sometimes I get bad breath. How can I get rid of my bad breath?

    • ANSWER:
      Bad breath is a symptom of bad digestion. Try using a liquid chlorophyll internal cleanser and tonic. This will aid in reducing and eliminating bad breath and body odour also. Any good health food store should be able to help you and it only costs around .00AUD per 15floz bottle.

      Also, on a nutritional level, increase your intake of Niacin (B3) rich foods ie: liver, meat, fish, whole grfains and legumes such as peas, beans and lentils.

      By taking a digestive supplement with your meals you will ensure efficient digestion and aid in also eliminating bad breath.

  6. QUESTION:
    what causes bad breath even though you go to the dentist and to the doctor?
    I brush, visit the dentist,but i have a bad odor on my breath , i'm very self conscious. if you have any pointer please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      I am assuming that you have a hygienists clean your teeth at the Dentist. Having said that, do you floss at least twice a day? You floss to remove tartar and food particles between the teeth. Do you eat a lot of garlic or spicy food, that can cause terrible breath? You also need to brush your tongue as a lot of bacteria can form there. If all that is taken care of, you could check out your sinuses and tonsils. If you have an infection in either it can cause an odour. Last but not least, check with your Family Dr., perhaps you could have a bad stomach that requires looking in to. I hope something works but if all fails, go to a good breath mint or gum with chlorophyll.

  7. QUESTION:
    What to do about bad breath?
    I floss like crazy its amazing that I don't have gaped teeth because of it. But I brush day and night and gargle (Listerine) afterwords. But its seems like 4 hrs after I get into work my breath smells like I didn't even brush gargle or floss. So I carry gum to "disguise". Its not really bad breath just more I can feel its gross. I'm in between insurances right now so what does anybody suggest? Any home remedies or really good toothpastes and gargling solutions that anybody swears by?

    • ANSWER:
      Sometimes bad breath is caused by stomach not digesting food properly. You can take a probiotic from a health food store to get that part taken care of. You can also get Chlorophyll while your there and put some in your bottled water. It tastes like mint and also takes away armpit odor when your drinking it.

      If you have acid reflux then you should take a tsp of Braggs vinegar before each meal. Yes it tastes horrible but you can wash it down with water and it will take away acid reflux just that easy.

      Braggs is the only brand that will work because of the mother in it. Health food store to buy as well.

      I would stop with the listerine... causes throat cancer and kills good stomach bacteria.

      If your teeth are hurting then you need to get to a dentist because sometimes odors are from bad teeth.

    i`ve seen my dentist yesterday and he said my teeth were ok, besides i don`t have no sinus troubles.

    • ANSWER:
      HI Day

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

      Natural Cures
      Aromatherapy: Peppermint, lavender, and cardamom essential oils can all help cases of bad breath.

      Ayurvedic Medicine: Triphala, an Ayurvedic herb, is useful for both bad breath and for balancing GI disorders. Take 1/2 teaspoon with warm water, 30 minutes before bedtime. You can also chew roasted cumin, fennel, and coriander seeds after each meal to further ensure healthy breath.

      Diet: Follow a whole foods diet and eat plenty of raw foods. Drink water with juice of fresh lemon and/or one teaspoon chlorophyll on rising and before bed. Include fiber in diet (oat bran, rice bran). Fiber (psyllium or pectin fiber) helps remove toxins from the colon and thereby decreases bad breath. Also be sure to chew your food well, don't overeat, and drink lots of liquids.

      Flower Essences: For negative feelings surrounding the problem, use Crab Apple.

      Herbs: Chewing seeds of fennel or anise as needed will mask the odor and have a mild local antimicrobial effect. Alternatively, chew cardamom seeds, parsley leaves, or other chlorophyll-rich herbs such as basil and cilantro. Peppermint or bergamot tea can also be helpful.

      Homeopathy: Arnica, Merc sol., Nux vom., Kali phos., and Chelidonium are the most commonly used homeopathic remedies for addressing bad breath.

      Juice Therapy: The following fresh juice combinations can help alleviate bad breath symptoms and also help GI disturbances that may be a contributing factor: Carrot and celery with parsley, spinach, watercress, alfalfa, comfrey, or beet tops; wheat grass juice; green juice; and carrot, spinach, and cucumber.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following supplements can be helpful in addressing bad breath, particularly if it is related to infections or GI disorders: Proteolytic enzymes (two between meals, three times daily, and two with each meal), vitamin A, vitamin B complex (100 mg two times daily), vitamin C, thiamine (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), Beta carotene, acidophilus, digestive enzymes, magnesium, zinc, and charcoal tablets.

      Chlorophyll products (wheat grass juice, chlorella, alfalfa tablets, barley juice) act as a blood purifier and can be effective in reducing and preventing bad breath.

      Cause
      Usually caused by some health problem in the mouth, teeth, gums, throat, or gastrointestinal tract. Other contributing factors may be smoking, liver disease, and poor protein digestion. The mouth is one window into the body. If there is a bad odor, it is a general sign that there is some underlying cause and imbalance that needs to be treated.

      Astute holistic health practitioners smell the breath and examine carefully the tongue and mouth of all patients. Certain odors or smells emanating from the mouth can be indications of specific disease; for example, a metallic smell may represent diabetes or an active metabolism undergoing rapid weight loss; sour smells may represent stomach problems or tumors. While conventional physicians do not agree that halitosis may represent intestinal problems, holistic practitioners, based on extensive anecdotal evidence provided by their patients, disagree, and will often address gastrointestinal health when treating cases of bad breath.

      Bad breath can also be caused by sinusitis or infections in the tonsils or lungs. Attention should also be given to other underlying causes, such as tooth and gum disease. People who experience bad breath, abdominal bloating and gas, and tiredness after meals may also be deficient in stomach acid.

      Bad breath can also be symptomatic of constipation or sluggish bowels. If you are not having 2-3 healthy bowel movements per day, consider doing a bowel-cleanse. Parasites can also be an undetected factor and should be screened for if halitosis doesn't improve after trying other treatment options.

      Best of health to you

  11. QUESTION:
    How to I get rid of a bad odor problem?
    Before you answer, let me start by saying I am very thorough with my daily hygiene. I shower once or twice/day, brush and floss, and take multivitamins but still there is an odor that I cannot always smell but I know it is there. I wear clean clothes, use deodorant, and don't smoke I have tried taking Zinc and chlorophyll tablets but they don't seem to work either. Thanks in advance for any helpful advice!

    • ANSWER:
      It depends where you think the odor is coming from. If you think it is bad breath, talk to your doctor about medical issues that might be causing it - infected sinuses, cavities, digestive problems, diabetes, etc.

      If you think it is an underarm odor, make sure that your perspirant is actually and antiperspirant and not just a deodorant.

  12. QUESTION:
    How do I go about asking a doctor for a solution to persistent body odor? How exactly do I ask him about it?
    I've had a problem with persistent body odor for 7 years now & I have severe anxiety because of it. You name it, I've tried it all to try & get rid of the b.o. but nothing's worked. I had to have my gallbladder removed about 3 years ago & during my checkup for the gallbladder removal surgery, I went ahead and mentioned the body odor issue to the doctor (he was a gastroenterologist / surgeon specializing in g.b. removal). When I told him about, my exact words were, "I've noticed an odor". He asked, "What kind of odor?" To which I embarassingly answered back, "I've noticed bad breath". Then he answered, "The odor should go away on it's own." Well it's been 3 years since that doctor visit and the gallbladder removal surgery and the odor it still there. It's not just bad breath though, basically, it's an odor all over. I am currently using liquid chlorophyll since I feel the odor is coming from inside. I will be making an apptmt with another Dr. How exactly should I ask him about it?
    Sorry ran outta room:
    What I mean is, what exactly should I say to the doctor so that he will take me seriously on the odor issue and so that he will order the correct tests needed to make sure that there is not some medical condition that is causing me to have the persistent odor. Also I will be asking him for anti-anxiety medicine.

    • ANSWER:
      Sweetie...doctors are not amused or put off by anything you ask them. Nothing and I mean NOTHING is new to them. All you do is ask them just as you asked on here. That's all you do. Tell the doctor that you always feel like there is an odor from somewhere. It might be your diet. He/she will probably order some tests. Don't be ashamed. It is NOTHING to be ashamed about. They are here to help us. Good luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    What's the best cat food for a kitty with bad dental issues? His breath is stankin!?
    We just adopted a 8 year old male kitty from a shelter and the only health issue is that he has a lot of tartar on his teeth. We will have to schedule a vet appointment to get that taken care of but in the meantime his breath is so smelly - poor little guy! Poor US! He loves to lick! We don't want to give him anything too crunchy because we think he recently lost a tooth and his mouth is sensitive (he swallows his food whole).

    • ANSWER:
      Floss with an ox. The next time you make oxtail soup, give your pet the cooked oxtail. Dr. Dorn says the tail's tendons and fibers help massage the teeth and gums and may help clean those hard-to-reach places.

      Quell it with carrots. A little bit of raw carrot, given as a midday treat, can act as a mild-mannered tooth scraper, scouring away stink-causing plaque, says Cheryl Schwartz, D.V.M., a veterinarian in private practice in Oakland, California.

      Reach for a spray. There are mouth sprays for dogs and cats, which do the same thing as the minty sprays people use. "They're purely cosmetic," says Dr. Shipp. But cosmetic isn't such a bad thing when your pet's breath is petrifying.

      Can the canned food. "Switching to dry food may help to improve mouth odor, because it scrapes the surface of the teeth," says Lisa Freeman, D.V.M., clinical instructor and a fellow in clinical nutrition at the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, Massachusetts.

      Nix nibbling. If you allow your pet to munch on her food throughout the day, the harmful bacteria in her mouth are always active, says Dr. Dorn. He advises picking up your pet's food bowl if she doesn't finish her meal within 30 minutes to an hour. "If you only feed a dog once or twice a day, you only feed the bacteria once or twice a day," Dr. Dorn says.

      Rice to the occasion. Whole grains, like cooked brown rice, can help food move along the digestive tract more readily, says Dr. Schwartz. "Better digestion can play a role in better breath," she says. She recommends replacing a small portion of your pet's regular food with rice at every meal.

      Scrap the scraps. Breath often reflects the diet, and if you're feeding your dog or cat things like leftover spaghetti flavored with lots of garlic, you may have found the cause of her bad breath.

      Go for the green. Chlorophyll tablets can aid digestion and sweeten your pet's breath, says Dr. Schwartz.

      Or blast it with black. The next time you're choosing biscuits for your pet, opt for the black variety. They may not be as pretty as the pinks or golds, but they usually have one thing the others don't -- a dash of charcoal. Charcoal is a binding agent that can absorb bad odors. But don't go overboard, since charcoal can also bind up essential nutrients. Limit treats to one or two a day, vets advise.

      Suspicious Odors
      Just as the eyes are windows to the soul, the mouth is a window to your pet's health. While a little stinky breath usually isn't cause for alarm, there are a few serious conditions that can cause distinct mouth odors, says Albert S. Dorn, D.V.M., professor of surgery at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville. In fact, your vet can often make a preliminary diagnosis based on your pet's breath. Here are some examples.

      A sweet, fruity scent could indicate diabetes, especially if your pet is drinking or urinating more than usual and is losing weight. A urine-like smell might mean kidney disease, particularly if it's accompanied by increased thirst and urination and decreased appetite. A mouth odor that vets simply describe as foul, when accompanied by vomiting, loss of appetite, swelling of the abdomen or yellowing of the eyes or gums, could indicate a liver disorder.

      Good luck!

  14. QUESTION:
    what products have others used to combat bad body odour?
    My mother suffers from trimethylaminuria, a condition which makes her smell bad, not from lack of hygiene, but it is a metabolic disease which means she emits smell from her body through sweat, breath etc

    • ANSWER:
      Liquid chlorophyll is an internal deodorant that deodorises your interior and reduces the odour of everything that comes out such as perspiration. Breath as well if it is due to an internal problem.

      Quite often a bad breath problem is due to a gum or dental problem.

  15. QUESTION:
    What is chlorophyl and acidophilius good for?
    Someone told me I can buy these at GNC.

    • ANSWER:
      Chlorophyll is anti-inflamatory, anti-oxidant, and anti-microbal agent. It minimizes bad breath, body odor, and serves as a liver de-toxifier. It also inhibits DNA-damaging chemicals from mutating and causing bacteria.

      Acidophilus helps minimize vaginal yeast and other bacterial infections.

      You can buy these at nutritional stores as well as healthfood stores. Just be careful and take note as to how your body reacts. I took supplements (extract form) several years back and my body reacted poorly. I cannot stress how important it is to drink lots of water!!

      If you are inquiring about these two supplements because of frequent bacterial/yeast infections take note that your diet has a large impact on this. Caffiene for example, can cause repeat vaginal infections. Drink lots of water and it is better to eat fruits with vitamins than to take supplements.

  16. QUESTION:
    Is it okay if I give my dog Doggie Mints?
    She's a 1 year old Pomeranian and her breath is kind of bad. Will Doggi Mints hurt her? Are they healthy? Your experience?
    Bobbie L: If I was serious with this question, I would know the answer and wouldn't need to ask. Get a life, I was just making sure it wouldn't poison my dog. Could it be I actually CARE about my dog?

    • ANSWER:
      You can get a bottle of liquid chlorophyll and put a teaspoon in her water every day, that will help with odors from both ends.

      You can also give her sprigs of parsley to eat or make your own treats with fresh parsley and chlorophyll and other healthy ingredients so you know they are good for her.

      If her breath is really bad it's a good idea to get her teeth checked. If she is on canned or wet food, try switching to (a good quality) dry food.

  17. QUESTION:
    What natural techniques are there to get rid of garlic breath?
    This excludes mouthwash and other hygiene products.

    • ANSWER:
      These methods may help reduce the severity of garlic breath or the duration of it:

      1. Parsley: Chewing on fresh parsley has been a long time remedy for bad breath. It is believed to work because it has high levels of chlorophyll that helps rid the body of toxins.

      2. Fresh herbs: Herbs such as peppermint, coriander, spearmint, tarragon, eucalyptus, rosemary and cardamom are also reported to work similarly to the way parsley does. Simply pop a sprig in your mouth and chew.

      3. Lemons: Lemon juice is often used to remove garlic odor off the hands. Many people also believe it can be used to help eliminate garlic breath by chewing on the peels.

      4. Yogurt: Eating 6 ounces of yogurt has been proven to reduce the levels of hydrogen sulfide in the mouth.

      5. Green Tea: Green tea can reduce the concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the mouth.

      6. Cardamom seeds: Chewing on cardamom seeds is supposed to work as well as parsley.

      7. Fennel seeds: Fennel seeds, which are often served at Indian restaurants, are reported to neutralize the smell of garlic.

      Good luck!

  18. QUESTION:
    This guy I know has terrible body odor, what can cure him of this?
    This guy we know who has started to hang out with us because he recently joined the baseball team and we noticed even we he's just got out of the shower he still have this terrible odor that linger on your furniture long after he's left. When we celebrate, I've noticed that he dont drink or smoke....What causes this and what can cure this?

    • ANSWER:
      Tips
      For excessive underarm odor, try using a mild solution of hydrogen peroxide (3%) that is cheap and can be picked up at the pharmacy. Put a teaspoonful in a glass of water and wash the underarm. If that doesn't work, increase the amount of peroxide.

      Since toxic overload may be one of the causes, try taking steam baths or saunas frequently as part of an overall detoxification program.

      Wellness program
      Lifestyle changes
      There are certain lifestyle changes to make if you have a constant problem with body odor. Occasional problems can be treated if you know the cause. We suggest a program of daily bathing, changes in diet, and changes in clothing.

      Bathing Bathe daily to remove bacteria from your skin, especially the armpits and groin area where the bacteria is most prevalent. Scrub the armpits with a soapy washcloth as that will work better to remove the bacteria than just soap in your hands. Deodorant soap is preferable as it helps fight bacteria more than regular soaps. If you have a serious odor problem, soak for fifteen minutes or longer in a tub of water with three cups of tomato juice added. Don't forget, tomato juice works on you and your pets if you have been "skunked"!

      Clothing Clothing is an area many people overlook. Loosely fitting clothes allow the body to breathe better than tight clothes. The perspiration escapes and doesn't become a breeding ground for bacteria. The type of fabric is also very important. Synthetic fabrics for shoes and clothes don't allow the body to breathe, so use all natural fabrics. Wash your clothes often!

      Dietary Dietary changes are also very important in eliminating various sources of odor. Certain foods, such as meat, onions, garlic, exotic spices, and drinks such as coffee and alcohol can lead to body odor. Try eliminating these from your diet for a week or two and see if this makes a difference. Although you can usually smell your own B.O. if it is from your armpits many people don't realize they have general body odor because they have become accustomed to it. Have someone you can confide in do a "smell test" - before and after you start eliminating certain foods. That may be the only way you will find out.

      Sweating As we mentioned above, excessive sweating may have underlying causes, so it is wise to be diagnosed to see if you have a medical problem. Women going through menopause and perimenopause may experience bouts of sweating accompanied by terrible body odor. The sweating may occur even when the woman is not warm. We'd like to thank Sue Berkenstock for this tip and the remedies she suggested as being quite effective, mentioned below, are baby wipes, vinegar, and bauxite crystal deodorant.

      Caffeine and medications may also be the cause of your sweating. Reduce your caffeine intake and note if there are changes when you stop taking medication.

      Tobacco Although we have mentioned it in the Bad Breath section, tobacco use is a major cause of body odor. Not only does it come back through your lungs, but it comes through the skin. It probably mixes with other elements of your body's chemistry to create a distinct odor. If you stop smoking it may take several weeks for the body to rid itself of odor causing substances.

      Supplements
      Chlorophyll One or two chlorophyll tablets or chlorophyll liquid taken with each meal may also help, as chlorophyll is a great deodorizer.

      Magnesium Take magnesium supplements or augment your diet with food sources high in this important mineral. Between 200-500 mg of magnesium have been recommended. You will have to try different doses until you get the amounts that are right for your body.

      Vitamins A high-potency B vitamin (50 mg or higher), when combined with magnesium, will help reduce certain secretions that can be a cause of odor. Make sure you are getting 100 mg of PABA and 100 mg of B6.

      Zinc If you have body odor, try taking zinc tablets. Zinc, plus magnesium, will help balance your body's metabolism and reduce the cause of bad odor. Studies have shown that taking 30 to 50 mg daily will dramatically reduce certain body odors, although you may need less. Zinc may also reduce perspiration and sweaty feet. However, it is wise to go above 15 mg only with a doctor's supervision as zinc may interfere with the absorption of copper, another essential trace mineral.

      Remedies
      Folk
      Alcohol/witch hazel Wipe your armpits with alcohol, white vinegar or witch hazel instead of deodorant.

      Alum Try using a crystal rock made from the mineral salt potassium alum instead of a deodorant. It won't keep you dry as an antiperspirant will, but they clog your sweat glands and contain aluminum chlorohydrate, which may lead to future health problems.

      Apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar eliminates under arm body odor when used in place of deodorant because it reduces the pH of the skin. Bacteria can't live in areas with low pH.

      • White vinegar is also helpful. Place some on a cotton ball and apply to the underarms instead of deodorant. The vinegar smell is gone in minutes and you should be smell-free all day.

      Baby powder Use baby powder or talc in areas of heavy perspiration.

      Baby wipes (see towelettes below) also work, but the results may be temporary.

      Baking soda Baking soda, the odor-eating standby, can be used instead of deodorant. Just apply the powder to your dry armpits. It will kill bacteria and help absorb perspiration. Cornstarch can also be used instead or mixed with the baking soda.

      Bauxite crystal deodorant works very well at controlling underarm odors.

      Parsley/alfalfa Chewing parsley, alfalfa and other leafy greens will help neutralize body odor, probably because of the deodorizing effect of the chlorophyll.

      Radishes Juice about two dozen radishes, add 1/4 teaspoon of glycerine, and put in a squirt or spray-top bottle. Use as an underarm deodorant or to reduce foot odor.

      Rosemary is an antibacterial herb. Put 8 to 10 drops of the essential oil in 1 ounce of water and appy it where needed.

      Sage Herbalists suggest drinking a cup of sage tea daily to reduce sweat gland activity. This is especially true for those who perspire excessively due to tension. Use 11/2 teaspoonsful of dried sage or two tea bags in one cup of water; steep for ten minutes; drink in small doses throughout the day.

      • Fresh sage leaves blended with tomato juice has been found to be very effective.

      Tea tree is an antibacterial herb. Make a deodorant by putting 2 drops of the essential oil into 1 ounce of water and apply where needed.

      Towelettes (baby wipes) Useful when a tense moment surges the sex hormones which produce fluid under the arms and around the genital areas that, when combined with bacteria, causes odor.

      Turnip juice Turnip juice will reduce underarm odor for up to 10 hours. Grate a turnip, squeeze the juice through cheesecloth, so that you have two teaspoonsful. Wash your armpits first, and vigorously rub one teaspoonful on each one.

      Wheat grass Take 500 mg of wheat grass daily on an empty stomach and wash down with a glass of water. The chlorophyll will dramatically reduce body odor.

      Homeopathic
      Silicea Homeopaths recommend dissolving three 6X tablets of the tissue salt Silicea under the tongue each morning and evening to knock out odor.

  19. QUESTION:
    What can I take to make me stop SMELLING BAD?
    I won't go into details, but I smell (people have told me) even though I shower with soap/shampoo/bod wash and use deodorant/antipersperant. I don't sweat much, but smell even after just taking a shower. Also, I eat really healthy (not garlic, onions, fast food; lots of veggies and fruits).

    I've been recommended magnesium, zinc, and acidophilus. Which of these will allow me to stop smelling? And HOW MUCH should I take of them?

    You're really helping me out with this serious problem. God Bless You.

  21. QUESTION:
    how can i stop my breath smelling so bad?
    I brush my teeth, I scrub my tounge?
    i have chewing gum? it just makes that smell as well after like 2 minutes?
    whats wrong?

    • ANSWER:
      The truth is, most breath odor comes from food particles trapped in our mouths. When food remains in the mouth, it becomes a breeding ground for the bacteria that can cause bad breath.

      Ways to Fight Against Bad Breath
      Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth thoroughly after every meal to remove food particle from the mouth.
      When you are brushing your teeth, also brush your tongue. The tongue is covered with thousands of tiny hairs that can trap bacteria.
      Have regular check-ups with your dentist to rule out gum disease and to correct any faulty restorations, overhanging fillings or leaking crowns, all of which can trap food in the mouth.
      Chew sugarless gum or suck on sugarless lozenges to increase the flow of saliva.
      If your mouth is dry, drink plenty of water. Try swooshing it around in your mouth for at least twenty seconds to loosen any food particles the bacteria can feed upon.
      Avoid breath mints and mouthwashes that contain alcohol. Instead of helping, they can make things worse. They only temporarily cover the smell and tend to dry the mouth, creating a more favorable environment for bacteria.
      Snacking on vegetables such as raw celery or carrots can keep plaque from forming.
      If you are going to an important meeting or on a big date, avoid foods that can cause bad breath, such as onions and garlic.
      Avoid alcohol and caffeine consumption, which can dry the mouth.
      Quit smoking. Tar and nicotine can build up on the surface of the teeth, tongue and cheeks. It can also dry the mouth and inhibit saliva flow.
      Chlorophyll is a natural breath freshener and is found in leafy green vegetables like parsley.
      A few drops of peppermint or tea tree oil can be applied to the tongue or toothbrush to help freshen the breath. In addition to its refreshing nature, their antibacterial properties will kill the bacteria found in the mouth.
      Baking soda has a long history of being used to maintain good oral health and for fighting bad breath.
      A mixture of 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% water can be swooshed around in the mouth and used as a mouthwash. Hydrogen peroxide can kill many of the bacteria that can cause bad breath.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is it okay to eat a bag of spinach everyday?
    I like to snack on it throughout the day.

    • ANSWER:
      1. A 10 ounce bag of spinach contains 1,715% of vitamin K and 56% daily value of magnesium. Vitamin K and magnesium are almost as important as vitamin D in making your bones stronger. The stronger your bones the heavier you can lift.

      2. It is the most nutrient dense food there is.

      3. Researchers have identified at least 13 different flavonoid compounds in spinach that function as antioxidants and as anti-cancer agents.

      4. It contains more chlorophyll then any other food which reduces body odors including bad breath. It might also fight cancer.

  23. QUESTION:
    Health shop products for the treatment of acne?
    Anybody know if there are any products you can buy in health shops, say Holland & Barrett, for the treatment of acne?

    I've tried everything at this stage, took antibiotics prescribed by a dermatologist for the past year but was taken off them a few months ago and now my skin is terrible again :(

    Thought I might try the health shop route!

    • ANSWER:
      please buy an aloe vera plant. this works amazingly. try 'blood cleansing' products like liquid chlorophyll (this will cure your acne, please try it, it also takes bad breath and body odour away too) or teas like dandelion tea, burdock, and yarrow.

  24. QUESTION:
    Has anyone taken chlorella and noticed improvements in their health?
    And if so, what kind of changes?

    • ANSWER:
      I looked up the product.. seems expensive. You can get chlorophyll for a lot less and it goes further plus its mint flavor. Also you can get blue green algae and get even better effects. You will notice you will never have bad breath and also you will lose all Body odor if you take it (the stuff I said) long enough. Your energy will increase and your body will feel better.

  25. QUESTION:
    What websites have liquid chlorophyll for dogs ???
    i was given a small dog but i find it has a heavy dog smell around it mouth. how can i eliminate the smell for good ?i find the smell is on the hair around it mouth its a shih tzu.got ppl say liquid chlorophyll might work not sure but went round websites found nothing.wondering if any websites have.

    • ANSWER:
      Bad breath rarely stems from the mouth but rather deeper in the digestive tract. In most cases a poor diet is to blame. Check the food and see if the main ingredient is a meat product or filler. Then see if the food has two or more of the following; cornmeal, wheat gluten, bone meal, soy meal, and brewers rice. If it does you may want to switch to a better brand. These fillers aid in bacterial growth causing not only digestive problems but a bad odor to emit from the mouth. The smell also come out through the dogs oil glands causing the coat to smell. A better quality diet would allow the dog to digest it's food faster resulting in less bacterial build-up.

  26. QUESTION:
    The benefits of chlorophyll ?
    I have hear many great benefits of chlorophyll, but some are hard to believe- like that it helps your pH "down there", or that it freshens breath. What do you know?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it DOES help you 'down there' and it does freshen breath. Many breath fresheners contain it. I have used it for many years.

      If you want more energy, supplement with chlorophyll. As I always say: what works in nature, surely works in man.

      Chlorophyll is the molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to synthesize carbohydrates from CO2 and water. This process is known as photosynthesis and is the basis for sustaining the life processes of all plants. Since animals and humans obtain their food supply by eating plants, photosynthesis can be said to be the source of our life also.

      Supplementing at least five days a week with liquid chlorophyll:

      * Enhances energy

      * Detoxifies the liver

      * Eliminates body odor and bad breath

      * Cleans the digestive tract

      * Aides in the prevention of liver cancer

      * Is beneficial in all cancer therapy

      * Helps with anemia

      * Aides in the elimination of mold from the body

      Without chlorophyll, also known as the "green blood" of plants, life as we know it could not exist. Chlorophyll is the natural plant pigment that lends its color to grass, leaves, and many of the vegetables humans eat. Chlorophyll may indeed play an important role in prevention of certain cancers. Researchers in the early 1980s discovered that chlorophylls and related chemicals could inhibit the ability of certain DNA-damaging chemicals to cause mutations in bacteria.

      M.G. Ferruzzi, Ohio State University, was the first researcher to demonstrate the absorption of chlorophyll into the intestinal cells; henceforth, supporting the potential importance of chlorophyll as a health-promoting plant compound.

      Improves immune function in colitis and fibromyalgia

      In the March 2001 study by Virginia Commonwealth University's R.E. Merchant and C.A. Andre, supplementation with chlorophyll-rich chlorella was shown to reduce high blood pressure, lower LDL ("bad" cholesterol), accelerate wound healing, and improve immune function in colitis and fibromyalgia. They gave supplemental chlorella to 55 fibromyalgia patients, 33 with hypertension, and nine with ulcerative colitis. These results followed a 2000 study by Marchant that showed a 22 percent decrease in pain intensity in patients with moderately severe fibromyalgia after two months of daily chlorella supplementation.

      A 1998 study by Brazilian researcher, M.S. Miranda, showed that spirulina, rich in chlorophyll, phenolic acids, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, all demonstrated powerful free-radical antioxidant protection in test-tube and experimental models.

      So, no more excuses for not getting your greens: chlorophyll from chlorella, blue-green algae, spirulina, blue-green algae, kelp, green barley, wheat grass and alfalfa.

      An interesting fact: as the chlorophyll in leaves decays in autumn, the green color fades and is replaced by the oranges and reds of carotenoids.

      Therapeutic Properties of Chlorophyll :

      *
      It purifies the blood and the organism, cleaning it of toxins.
      *
      Chlorophyll can help prevent cancer and is being used in cancer therapy.
      *
      It detoxifies the liver
      *
      It cleans the intestines
      *
      Helps combat anemia
      *
      It helps to rejuvenate and energize the body
      *
      Immune system stimulator
      *
      Is beneficial against sinusitis, fluid buildup, and skin rashes
      *
      Normalizes blood pressure
      *
      It eliminate molds in the body
      *
      One of the principal function is combating bad odors, bad breath as well as body odor. This is due to the magnesium salts that it contains.

  27. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of body odor?
    My little brother is 19 and stinks so bad. He showers, and shortly after the smell has returned. My sofa still stinks and he has been gone for 2 days. What could this be? It has to be something medical.... He is overweight... he does shower... any suggestions? I want to bring this up to him from a nice ... medical standpoint.... and offer him advice at the same time i am telling him about the bad odor...

    • ANSWER:
      Excessive body odour is usually due to a lack of vitamin B12 and Zinc in your diet. Get him to eat more foods rich in these vitamins ie: B12 - organ meats such as lambs fry and kidneys, skimmed milks and cheeses, fish and eggs. Zinc - Vegies, wholegrains, wheat bran, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cold water fishes such as tuna, sardines, salmon and whiting.

      Other symptoms of B12 he may be suffering from are excessive sweating, insomnia, constipation, nausea and vomiting, fatigue and exhaustion, deression, tingling and prickling and numbing sensations in the outer extremities, chest pains and heart palpitations (hard to believe but true), irritability and moodiness, dizzy spells, inability to think clearly and headaches and migraines....... suggest he take a multi B complex supplement including all the B's ie: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 as they work best as a group.
      The B complex of vitamins are a water soluble group and as such our bodies can neither produce or store them. Therefore we need to ingest them on a daily basis or suffer the consequences as your brother unfortunately is.

      Suggest to him also to take 1 - 2 multiple digestive enzyme tablets 1 - 3 times daily before food as this will aid in the digestive process.

      Also, by taking 1 chlorophyll tablet or capsule 3 times daily this will also help to reduce or eliminate offensive body and breath odours .

  28. QUESTION:
    I am a 23 year old,suffering with chronic bad breath for as long back as I can remember.It has been getting?
    progressively worse.I have tried probiotics,chlorophyll,parsley, detox products,oxygenating products from Dr.Katz, changing my diet to exclude meats, dairy.I had also been to a fresh breath clinic where they took samples from my teeth and tongue,which concluded that I have"very high numbers of gram positive cocci and bacilli.As well very very high numbers of gram-negative cocci and bacilli,a moderate amount of vibrios".They then prescribed antibiotic mouthwashes and antimicrobial rinses like chlorohexadine that did not work (and did not seem to worsen the problem either.I find that the breath has been getting worse with age in general).I did not measure very high on the halimeter, which tests for VSCs.The odour is not sulphuric, but rather is of a putrid nature.I do not suffer from post-nasal drip. I have no cavaties,but I build up tartar very quickly, and was told that tartar builds up in basic environment,as does odor causing bacteria.My oral hygeine is very good.any solutions/help?

    • ANSWER:
      You said you build up tartar very quickly. Have you tried the tartar control toothpastes on the market? Baking soda brushing is also good for odor control. Followed by a good 3 minute brushing with tartar control toothpaste. Listerine kills a lot of germs and so I would follow up with a good Listerine rinse. Also, there are tartar control pre rinses that you might want to try. It seems since you have eliminated other causes, your build up of tartar is the last issue to address. I build a lot of tartar also and have had to go to these extreme measures to keep my mouth and teeth clean. I brush 3-4 times daily and go through my anti tartar routine. It works and the dentist says my teeth are perfect. I have never lost one and I am almost 50! Shh! Always carry a toothbrush with you to brush when you are away from home. Like after you eat in a restaurant so you will not let tartar accumulate.

  29. QUESTION:
    good way to deal with bad breath?
    I have horrible breath, I have one bad tooth and since It has broke in half my breath has been bad, I brush twice a day or more and floss and brush my tounge...What else can I do ??
    wendy B> I am almost 25 years old. and I've had this problem for about a year now.
    I am wondering if it isnt infected, because if I stick my tounge in the open part of the tooth and suck on it I get blood out of it.
    As I said before I brush twice or more a day and I have rinsed with Listerine and flossed and sometimes gargle peroxide
    I also have four of my baby teeth, the canines

    • ANSWER:
      You can go to the drugstore and look through the section that has herbals and vitamins. Look for chlorophyll. That's the stuff that makes plants green. It is excellent for halitosis (bad breath) and any other body odours. Chlorophyll is the stuff they put in sugar-free gums like chlorets to help with breath odour.

      You can either take up to 3 at one time or if they're not gelcaps, then you can dissolve them into water and gargle like a mouth wash once or twice a day as needed.

      Just be pre-warned that it will change your bowel movement colour. Don't panic!! It's normal that it goes dark (forest or hunter) green. That's just the chlorophyll coming back through. Your body doesn't actually use it so it comes out along with the odour.

    Amy G r u so insensitive or rather paralytic to sense when if u fart while u sneeze. Please stop ur nonsense
    Amy G r u so insensitive or rather paralytic to sense when ur farting while u sneeze. Please stop ur nonsense

    • ANSWER:
      Brush your teeth well, and then use toothpaste and clean your tongue, too. Don't eat garlic or onions before a date.

      But actually most bad smell you notice after a sneeze does not originate in the mouth. The air picks up the bad smell lower down in the respiratory tract. So it may be a sign of infection someplace.

      The easiest way to get rid of any personal odors is to buy some chlorophyll tablets at a health food store. You can even get chewable ones especially for mouth odors. Chlorophyll is just the green coloring from vegetables, so it's 100% safe, in any dose, and it will not turn your skin green. Try it--there is no downside. (But you still need to brush your teeth!)

  31. QUESTION:
    How can I make my breath smell better?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, obviously...bruch your teeth & gargle with Listerine daily.
      Also, go to local health food store & buy a supplement called "Chlorophyll". It removes bad breath, body odor, foot odor & any other kind of unpleasant smell from the body, while being very healthy for the body at the same time. It is sweet tasting.

  32. QUESTION:
    What can my friend could do with his bad breath?

    • ANSWER:
      Health food store. Buy liquid "Chlorophyll". It is good for bad breath; body odor; foot odor; you name it!
      Good tasting, too. Only 1 spoonful daily. Very healing to body, as well.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Shawn

      Here are some ideas to use and the reason why is on the bottom.

      Natural Cures
      Aromatherapy: Peppermint, lavender, and cardamom essential oils can all help cases of bad breath.

      Ayurvedic Medicine: Triphala, an Ayurvedic herb, is useful for both bad breath and for balancing GI disorders. Take 1/2 teaspoon with warm water, 30 minutes before bedtime. You can also chew roasted cumin, fennel, and coriander seeds after each meal to further ensure healthy breath.

      Diet: Follow a whole foods diet and eat plenty of raw foods. Drink water with juice of fresh lemon and/or one teaspoon chlorophyll on rising and before bed. Include fiber in diet (oat bran, rice bran). Fiber (psyllium or pectin fiber) helps remove toxins from the colon and thereby decreases bad breath. Also be sure to chew your food well, don't overeat, and drink lots of liquids.

      Flower Essences: For negative feelings surrounding the problem, use Crab Apple.

      Herbs: Chewing seeds of fennel or anise as needed will mask the odor and have a mild local antimicrobial effect. Alternatively, chew cardamom seeds, parsley leaves, or other chlorophyll-rich herbs such as basil and cilantro. Peppermint or bergamot tea can also be helpful.

      Homeopathy: Arnica, Merc sol., Nux vom., Kali phos., and Chelidonium are the most commonly used homeopathic remedies for addressing bad breath.

      Juice Therapy: The following fresh juice combinations can help alleviate bad breath symptoms and also help GI disturbances that may be a contributing factor: Carrot and celery with parsley, spinach, watercress, alfalfa, comfrey, or beet tops; wheat grass juice; green juice; and carrot, spinach, and cucumber.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following supplements can be helpful in addressing bad breath, particularly if it is related to infections or GI disorders: Proteolytic enzymes (two between meals, three times daily, and two with each meal), vitamin A, vitamin B complex (100 mg two times daily), vitamin C, thiamine (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), Beta carotene, acidophilus, digestive enzymes, magnesium, zinc, and charcoal tablets.

      Chlorophyll products (wheat grass juice, chlorella, alfalfa tablets, barley juice) act as a blood purifier and can be effective in reducing and preventing bad breath.

      Cause
      Usually caused by some health problem in the mouth, teeth, gums, throat, or gastrointestinal tract. Other contributing factors may be smoking, liver disease, and poor protein digestion. The mouth is one window into the body. If there is a bad odor, it is a general sign that there is some underlying cause and imbalance that needs to be treated.

      Astute holistic health practitioners smell the breath and examine carefully the tongue and mouth of all patients. Certain odors or smells emanating from the mouth can be indications of specific disease; for example, a metallic smell may represent diabetes or an active metabolism undergoing rapid weight loss; sour smells may represent stomach problems or tumors. While conventional physicians do not agree that halitosis may represent intestinal problems, holistic practitioners, based on extensive anecdotal evidence provided by their patients, disagree, and will often address gastrointestinal health when treating cases of bad breath.

      Bad breath can also be caused by sinusitis or infections in the tonsils or lungs. Attention should also be given to other underlying causes, such as tooth and gum disease. People who experience bad breath, abdominal bloating and gas, and tiredness after meals may also be deficient in stomach acid.

      Bad breath can also be symptomatic of constipation or sluggish bowels. If you are not having 2-3 healthy bowel movements per day, consider doing a bowel-cleanse. Parasites can also be an undetected factor and should be screened for if halitosis doesn't improve after trying other treatment options.

      Best of health to you

  35. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural herbs or supplements than can help make farts less stinky?
    Or even fart less often? Please do not respond with Gas-X or Beano since these are not natural and are intended for upper gastric gas (burping, bloating, etc) not farting (flatulence).

    • ANSWER:
      Try a product called Body Mint. It freshens up mostly everything in your body. It's heavy on chlorophyll from what the package says. It was invented here in Hawaii, but is now being sold across the US. It's a bit pricey, but takes care of body odor, bad breath, room-clearing farts, etc. Smell ya later....

  36. QUESTION:
    I have tried everything - why do I still stink?
    I shower everyday, everywhere on my body, I make sure my clothes are clean, and in between classes I run to the nearest men's room and when nobody is looking, I shove hand fulls of soap under my armpits. And yet, I still stink up the place. Is there something I'm missing?

    • ANSWER:

      I don't know why your body is doing this--and you might want to ask a doctor. But I can tell you something overwhelmingly likely to help with or eliminate the odor: Take a product called "Body Mint"--or any brand supplement of chlorophyllin, 100 mg, 2x/day. It's basically chlorophyll. It won't make you smell minty but it really works to stop body odors--underarms, feet, even bad breath.

      A friend of mine (a woman) had a problem like yours a couple of years back and chlorophyllin worked wonders for her. You can get it at health food stores and Whole Foods.

      You should definitely make sure you're using an antibacterial soap. And you might want to see a doctor since s/he can prescribe prescription strength deodorant and may want to run tests, for example, on your endocrine system. Also, if you're looking for causes, check the side effects of any medications that you're taking.
      Good luck!

  37. QUESTION:
    Chlorophyll As Bad Breath Reducer?
    I often heard chlorophyll able to reduce bad breath. Can I have confirmation and explaination?

    • ANSWER:
      Chlorophyll (Vitamin K)

      Chlorophyll, a rich source of vitamin K, is found in alfalfa liquid, wheatgrass, and barley juice. Chlorophyll has potent antioxidant properties and neutralizes unpleasant odors, which may be an effective inclusion in one's halitosis therapy
      But not just chlorophyll, there are:
      Probiotics (Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria)

      Probiotics including lactobacillus acidophilus (small bowel friendly bacteria) and bifidobacteria (large bowel friendly bacteria) are nutritional supplements containing the same beneficial bacteria that are found in the digestive tract. The supplementation of probiotics has been shown to enhance intestinal tract immunity and can be helpful for post-antibiotic therapy. When there an imbalance in the ratio of bad bacteria vs. friendly bacteria occurs, bad breath results. Probiotic supplementation may be helpful for halitosis therapy by maintaning a greater ratio of friendly bacteria over the harmful variety

      Tea tree oil
      Tea tree oil, extracted from the leaves of the native Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree, has been used for centuries as an antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agent. Studies report that tea tree oil is effective in treating a wide range of microbial infections, including oral bacteria that cause cavities, gum disease, and halitosis. Tea tree oil can be an effective addition to antiseptic oral rinses and toothpastes

      And

      Green tea (Camellia sinensis)

      Green tea, derived from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, possesses strong antioxidant properties. Studies suggest that green tea is effective in treating a wide range of microbial infections, including the oral bacteria that cause cavities, gum disease, and halitosis. Drinking green tea may even assist in destroying bacteria that could potentially cause bad breath.

  38. QUESTION:
    How can I cure bad breath?

    • ANSWER:
      If it is due to a gum or teeth problem you need a dentist.

      If it is an internal problem you need liquid chlorophyll which is an internal deodorant that deodorises your interior and reduces the odour of everything that comes out including stomach odours.

  39. QUESTION:
    How can I stop smelling bad?
    Even right after I shower, having not sweat--I smell--even though I use soap, body wash, shampoo, etc.

    I've been recommended some products, and would like to know if you've heard of them working.

    magnesium
    zinc
    acidophilous
    liquid CHLOROPHYLL
    Mangosteen
    bodymint
    charcoal
    vitamin B12
    digestive enzyme
    Musk

    If yes, please give more information on how much to take and all the details possible--this will earn you the best answer...and know you are changing my life!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      calcium and magnesium work together, the optimum ratio is 2 to 1, and you can get tablets from the vitamin shelf in food stores or pharmacy. One without the other, does not absorb or work optimally in the body. Its best to keep that ratio balance.

      zinc 25 mg for adults per day is healthy, never take more than 50 mg per day. You could get this separately or something that is already within multivitamins. Its goood to help keep your skin healthy and helps work against germs and acne

      acidophilous is a bacteria in yogurts, its best taken by eating yogurt or cottage cheese or sour creme. This bacteria is very beneficial for your digestive system, helps prevent excessive growth of other bacteria which produce toxins, indigestion gases...

      CHLOROPHYLL, or any form, can be from eating salads, green leafy vegetables, or chewing gum with chlorophyll

      Mangosteen is a great, very healthy fruit from Asia somewhere, but unfamiliar as yet in North America

      any mint, I've seen it in some foot powders too, but you can buy mint tea, or mint candies if it contains natural mint flavour. They absorb and reverse bad breath and body odours, and even straighten out digestion and sweat gland issues

      charcoal absorbs chemicals. I've seen it as supplements in vitamin stores but its kind of weird. You could eat a small amount of slightly burnt toast, but its not the best thing to injest

      vitamin B12 CAUTION B Vitamins are essential for health, but really are complex, working in conjuction with other B vitamins and zinc etc...and they really need to be balanced, and taken WITH carbohydrates, starchy food like bread, noodles, rice...to avoid health problems and pain. You can get Balanced B vitamins with zinc as "stress vitamins" or simply through "multi-vitamins"

      digestive enzyme from eating papaya fruit, or papaya tablets

      Musk aftershave

      Maybe you should try some other things too. Simple babypowder / talc sprinkled on your feet after you dry from the shower, helps deodorize your feet all day, Also, get exercise so you do sweat it out, clean out your pores from inside out. Get odour-eaters type shoe inserts. Change your brand or scent of the soaps etc. Visit your dentist, there may be something there you may not be aware of, and despite how much you clean. Also, use a fresh towel after every shower, and check your clothes to make sure they aren't the culprit, either harbouring mildew you can't see, or causing you to sweat or stink. You may also consider asking a doctor, because other health problems like liver problems can contribute to odour. If all else fails, re-consider your critics and straighten them out.

  40. QUESTION:
    what can you do for bad breath?
    my husband just over the last few months has had horrible breath, even brushing, gum, chewing fruity candy. he says his mouth has tasted horrible constantly. even when we're talking at a distance i can smell it. if i tell him to go to a dr. he'll get defensive. what can we do or what can i suggest?????????????????? i want to kiss him without thinking oh no his breath - i'm sensitive to icky smells!

    • ANSWER:
      As I responded to another Q,
      First you have to know the cause of this smell, it could be a disease like diabetes or some oral diseases. If no disease exists, these are some useful tips:

      - brush your tongue and use the floss regularily because accumilating food can cause bad smell

      - chew fresh spearmint leaves (it also whitens teeth)

      - chew a fresh barsley, it has chlorophyll that kills bacteria causing bad odour

      - chew a dried clove

      - rinse your mouth with water that contains chopped watercress

      - make your diet rich with fibers

      - Things like alcohol, onion, gralic can cause bad smell so try to avoid them. You can use garlic tablets to get the benifit of grarlic instead of eating it since it's good to dissolve fats and for cardiovascular diseases.

  41. QUESTION:
    Bad breath remedies? Does anyone know of anything to get rid of bad breath besides the?
    obvious of brushing, flossing, tongue scraping and mouth wash

    • ANSWER:
      chlorophyll caplets, you can get them at GNC, i read its good for any internal odors...

  42. QUESTION:
    Why does are breath stink in the morning?

    • ANSWER:
      We are all familiar with how the consumption of certain foods such as garlic and onions can affect our breath. This occurs because these foods are absorbed into our bloodstream, where they are transferred to our lungs and exhaled. Fortunately, bad breath caused by the foods we eat is only temporary.

      most breath odor comes from food particles trapped in our mouths. When food remains in the mouth, it becomes a breeding ground for the bacteria that can cause bad breath. Other causes can include poor oral health, improper cleaning of dentures, periodontal disease as well as smoking & tobacco products. Bad breath can also be sign of an underlying medical condition of the stomach, lungs and bloodstream.

      Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth thoroughly after every meal to remove food particle from the mouth.
      When you are brushing your teeth, also brush your tongue. The tongue is covered with thousands of tiny hairs that can trap bacteria.

      If your mouth is dry, drink plenty of water. Try swooshing it around in your mouth for at least twenty seconds to loosen any food particles the bacteria can feed upon.
      Avoid breath mints and mouthwashes that contain alcohol. Instead of helping, they can maket hings worse. They only temporarily cover the smell and tend to dry the mouth, creating a more favorable environment for bacteria.
      Snacking on vegetables such as raw celery or carrots can keep plaque from forming.
      If you are going to an important meeting or on a big date, avoid foods that can cause bad breath, such as onions and garlic.
      Avoid alcohol and caffeine consumption, which can dry the mouth.
      Quit smoking. Tar and nicotine can build up on the surface of the teeth, tongue and cheeks. It can also dry the mouth and inhibit saliva flow.Chlorophyll is a natural breath freshener and is found in leafy green vegetables like parsley.
      A few drops of peppermint or tea tree oil can be applied to the tongue or toothbrush to help freshen the breath. In addition to its refreshing nature, their antibacterial properties will kill the bacteria found in the mouth.
      Baking soda has a long history of being used to maintain good oral health and for fighting bad breath.
      A mixture of 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% water can be swooshed around in the mouth and used as a mouthwash. Hydrogen peroxide can kill many of the bacteria that can cause bad breath.

  43. QUESTION:
    Why do I belch and continued bad breath?

    • ANSWER:
      HI George

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

      Natural Cures
      Aromatherapy: Peppermint, lavender, and cardamom essential oils can all help cases of bad breath.

      Ayurvedic Medicine: Triphala, an Ayurvedic herb, is useful for both bad breath and for balancing GI disorders. Take 1/2 teaspoon with warm water, 30 minutes before bedtime. You can also chew roasted cumin, fennel, and coriander seeds after each meal to further ensure healthy breath.

      Diet: Follow a whole foods diet and eat plenty of raw foods. Drink water with juice of fresh lemon and/or one teaspoon chlorophyll on rising and before bed. Include fiber in diet (oat bran, rice bran). Fiber (psyllium or pectin fiber) helps remove toxins from the colon and thereby decreases bad breath. Also be sure to chew your food well, don't overeat, and drink lots of liquids.

      Flower Essences: For negative feelings surrounding the problem, use Crab Apple.

      Herbs: Chewing seeds of fennel or anise as needed will mask the odor and have a mild local antimicrobial effect. Alternatively, chew cardamom seeds, parsley leaves, or other chlorophyll-rich herbs such as basil and cilantro. Peppermint or bergamot tea can also be helpful.

      Homeopathy: Arnica, Merc sol., Nux vom., Kali phos., and Chelidonium are the most commonly used homeopathic remedies for addressing bad breath.

      Juice Therapy: The following fresh juice combinations can help alleviate bad breath symptoms and also help GI disturbances that may be a contributing factor: Carrot and celery with parsley, spinach, watercress, alfalfa, comfrey, or beet tops; wheat grass juice; green juice; and carrot, spinach, and cucumber.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following supplements can be helpful in addressing bad breath, particularly if it is related to infections or GI disorders: Proteolytic enzymes (two between meals, three times daily, and two with each meal), vitamin A, vitamin B complex (100 mg two times daily), vitamin C, thiamine (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), Beta carotene, acidophilus, digestive enzymes, magnesium, zinc, and charcoal tablets.

      Chlorophyll products (wheat grass juice, chlorella, alfalfa tablets, barley juice) act as a blood purifier and can be effective in reducing and preventing bad breath.

      Cause
      Usually caused by some health problem in the mouth, teeth, gums, throat, or gastrointestinal tract. Other contributing factors may be smoking, liver disease, and poor protein digestion. The mouth is one window into the body. If there is a bad odor, it is a general sign that there is some underlying cause and imbalance that needs to be treated.

      Astute holistic health practitioners smell the breath and examine carefully the tongue and mouth of all patients. Certain odors or smells emanating from the mouth can be indications of specific disease; for example, a metallic smell may represent diabetes or an active metabolism undergoing rapid weight loss; sour smells may represent stomach problems or tumors. While conventional physicians do not agree that halitosis may represent intestinal problems, holistic practitioners, based on extensive anecdotal evidence provided by their patients, disagree, and will often address gastrointestinal health when treating cases of bad breath.

      Bad breath can also be caused by sinusitis or infections in the tonsils or lungs. Attention should also be given to other underlying causes, such as tooth and gum disease. People who experience bad breath, abdominal bloating and gas, and tiredness after meals may also be deficient in stomach acid.

      Bad breath can also be symptomatic of constipation or sluggish bowels. If you are not having 2-3 healthy bowel movements per day, consider doing a bowel-cleanse. Parasites can also be an undetected factor and should be screened for if halitosis doesn't improve after trying other treatment options.

      Best of health to you

  45. QUESTION:
    Bad body odor after working out... ?
    I have really bad body odor after working out that emanates from shorts -- and no where else. It is especially strong after running. I cannot describe the smell but it does NOT smell like typical B.O. that comes from the arm pit....

    • ANSWER:
      BAD BREATH or BODY ODOR:

      Take a magnesium supplement daily. People with body or mouth odors usually are deficient in magnesium. Or you could need a Vitamin B or Zinc supplement as being deficient in either can cause breath odor.

      Don't eat offensive foods like garlic or onions. You are what you eat for several days afterwards. If you enjoy eating offensive foods, try eating them only in their cooked form instead of raw.

      When a person has a foul odor to their body, has frequent desire to urinate, and has a problem with mouth and gum sores, it is a sign they need Mercurius Vivus, a homeopathic remedy. Try finding herbs, homeopathic remedies, and vitamins onlines at www.VitaCost.com or www.drugstore.com

      Take 2 Chlorophyll capsules daily to help stop any type body or mouth odors.

      Chew on fresh sprigs of parsley, rosemary, or basil after a meal to rid the mouth of foul odors.

      Suck on a coffee bean to cleanse the breath, but be careful not to swallow the whole bean. Chocolate covered coffee beans of various flavors can be found at www.nutsonline.com

      Chew on cardamom seeds, but do not swallow them.

      Drink peppermint tea, or take peppermint capsules.

      Swish the mouth with pure cold-pressed sesame oil daily to kill offensive germs, bacteria, and viruses.

      Use 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouth rinse daily, also gargling with it, so it reaches the back of your throat. Brush your teeth and tongue with a combination of equal parts of baking soda and sea salt. This will give you clean, white teeth and a fresh smelling mouth when done on a regular basis.

      Take between 2000 and 6000 mg. Vitamin C daily to rid the body of foul odors.

      Take a warm bath daily, and add 1 cup baking soda and sea salt mixed into your bath water to stop body odor. Shampoo your hair daily as it can also harbor foul odors.

      You can take activated charcoal tablets bought from an herb store to stop body odors if they are caused internally. Take as directed on the bottle.

    • ANSWER:
      It may be your diet, it could be the soap you use. Are you taking supplements like krill oil or garlic oil ?
      Krill oil made my breath smell like dog s**t. Have you tried Arm &Hammer deodorant with baking soda in it? It works great for me. How about your clothes ? Do you leave them in the washing machine too long before putting them in the dryer ? Because then they will stink and so will you. Try eating yogurt to soak up some bad bacteria within your gut. Last thing you could try is taking chlorophyll supplements. They can change the way your breath and body smell. I think Puritan Pride Co. might sell them online.
      Good Luck.

  47. QUESTION:
    what causes a symptom of rotten egg-smelling burps?

    • ANSWER:
      Bad digestion. Eat more foods rich in magnesium. ie ~ leafy and green vegies, ground up nuts and seeds (ground up to aid in digestion of same), cold water fishes such as tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting and wholegrain breads and cereals.

      magnesium is essential for healthy nerve and muscle functioning and will encourage the production of hydrochloric acid in your tummy, thus aiding in digestion.

      magnesium will also help eliminate any issues you may have with constipation.

      Magnesium is known as the antistress mineral so will help in fighting depression and beating the blues. It is also important for converting blood sugar into energy. So try to include leafy and green vegies with your lunch on a sandwich, mixed with your stir fry for dinner to gain the full benefits of this ripper little mineral.

      Bad breath also signifies a vitamin B3 (niacin) deficiency so eat more foods rich in niacin also. ie ~ liver, meat, fish, wholegrains and legumes such as peas, beans and lentils.

      Chewing on cinnamon sticks helps to freshen your breath too if you like the taste.

      Liquid chlorophyll is also good to drink mixed up in a glass with water is good for eliminating offensive body odors such as bad breath♥

      Also, if you tak a good quality digestive enzyme tablet 1 - 3 times daily with your meals you will find that will also help digestion and elimination the bad smelling belching♥

  48. QUESTION:
    cure my bad breath with natural way?
    my breath smells bad.I want to cure it physically with herbs an etc.Also what can i eat before kissing a girl except guns(something natural)

    • ANSWER:
      Alfalfa tablets may help eliminate bad breath.

      Anise Chew anise, cardamom, dill or fennel seeds to help mask odors. Anise, the licorice-flavored seed, kills the bacteria that cause odor.

      Chlorophyll Try liquid or chlorophyll tablets which you can buy at your pharmacy. Chlorophyll has a deodorizing effect and is used in a number of products for that purpose.

      Cloves Cloves are a powerful antiseptic. Make a tea by putting 3 whole or 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves in 2 cups of hot water, and steep for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour through a fine strainer and use as a mouthwash or gargle twice a day.

      Fennel Fennel is another useful herb and can be used in several ways. Slowly chew the leaves and allow the saliva to build up in your mouth. Or, mix the contents of a fennel capsule with baking soda, make into a paste, and brush your teeth, gums and tongue with it. The fluid extract of fennel can be rubbed on your gums and tongue.

      Filberts Chew some filberts (hazelnuts) slowly as they will absorb the bad breath.

      Herbs Chewing mint, parsley, basil, rosemary, thyme and wintergreen will help mitigate bad breath.

      Lemon Suck a lemon wedge sprinkled with salt to stop onion or garlic breath.

      Myrrh Dissolving a pea-sized piece of myrrh in your mouth before bed or sucking a small piece of cinnamon bark during the day may help relieve the problem.

      • It can be made into a tea. To make the tea add 2 sprigs of coarsely chopped parsley, 3 whole spice cloves, 1 teaspoon of powdered myrrh, and 1/4 teaspoon powdered goldenseal to 1 pint of boiling water. Steep. Stir occasionally while cooling, then strain and use as a mouthwash.

      Parsley & mint Chewing parsley or mint leaves has been a remedy used for thousands of years. These herbs are especially good if garlic and onions are the source of your bad breath. Parsley is very high in chlorophyll. Chew a few parsley sprigs dipped in vinegar for immediate relief. If you swallow the leaves after chewing them they will be digested and continue to provide breath freshness for quite a while. These plants seem to reduce the production of intestinal gas by promoting better digestion.

      • Natural gum made with spearmint or peppermint essential oils will also be helpful. These oils kill odor- causing bacteria, and the chewing action stimulates the production of saliva which helps combat bad breath.

      Sage Chew sage. It contains essential oils with antibacterial properties that help neutralize one of the causes of bad breath.

      Spirulina is a very good source of chlorophyll and can be purchased either in capsule or loose form. Start with 500 mg three times a day.

      Tea Another tea may be made by steeping 2 sprigs of coarsely chopped parsley, 3 whole cloves, 1 teaspoon of powdered myrrh and 1/4 teaspoon powdered goldenseal in 1 pint of boiling water. Stir occasionally while cooling, strain, and use as a mouthwash. Can also be used for a sore throat. Alfalfa is rich in chlorophyll. Drink alfalfa tea several times a day to keep your breath fresh. To make the tea, put two teaspoons of dried leaves in a cup of boiling water and steep for 10-20 minutes. You may also find alfalfa tablets at an herb or health food store.

      • Peppermint or fenugreek are other good herbs to use in a tea to sooth the stomach. They are exhaled through the lungs and help sweeten the breath.

      Tea tree oil Tea tree oil, derived from the leaves of the native Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree, contain antiseptic compounds that make it a powerful disinfectant. Try using a toothpaste containing tea tree oil, or put a few drops of tea tree oil on your toothbrush alone, or with your regular toothpaste. It has a strong aromatic flavor.

  50. QUESTION:
    Trying to get rid of seborrheic dermatitis on face, will these supplements work internally?
    It's mostly related to a GI issue that I have with esophagitis and GERD. I have noticeable bad breath and odor too. I also noticed I drink water from sources that contain minerals and metals but I have no choice.

    So would these ideally work internally?

    -Chlorophyll capsules to remove toxins
    -Fiber, a must, to clear out the colon
    -Probiotics, to replace gut flora
    -Omega-3 & Hyaluronic Acid Caps for added effect in restoring skin moisture
    -Omeprazole for GERD (optional)

    • ANSWER:
      There is no reason to believe that seborrhea has ANYTHING to do with your intestines.
      The issue is how your skin sheds and replicates.

      If you are reading that silly "Prescription for Nutritional Healing", throw it out. The manufactures pay to have supplements suggested for issues, regardless of whether they work or not for a condition.

      If you want something natural, I would suggest Aubreys Calagula Pine Tar soaps.
