I concur with Victoria on the brushing tongue routine.  I try to do it daily.  Also drinking two glasses of water upon waking and throughout the day.

Quoted from Andrea AWsec


Thanks for this link, Andrea. I never knew what those nasty things were, and never had the courage to ask anyone. But, come to think of it, I haven't had a single one since commencing the BTD.

Tom, I recently read an old thread that recommended using a combo of salt and bicarbonate soda instead of regular toothpaste. Hubby and I have been doing that for a little over a week now, and I think that in terms of oral cleanness, it is helping.   I tried the oil-pulling, too, but it made me gag, so I have given that one a miss

I recommend OP.  Start the day with a 20 minutes compliant oil mouth swirling, gentle, easy does it ... do it while preparing breakfast or even showering ... after 20 minutes or so, spit it out, rinse mouth very well and for the rest of the day remember to floss after eating and most definetely before going to bed ... occasionally, you can water brush your teeth too ...

Try this routine out for a few days and notice the difference ... that is all I have been doing for over a year now ... my gums and teeth feel and look great!

20 minutes!!!!????

If I could go 20 minutes without having to persuade my children to stop killing each other/destroying toys or the house I would be one calm woman.  Unfortunately I am not!.

it is most effective, first thing in the morning, before eating, drinking and in your case, maybe even talking to the kids, provided you wake up before them

I see my dentist 3x a year for a cleaning.  I have dental insurance that covers that (though little else) so I take advantage of it.  I also floss every day, not just brush.  I also love the waterpik because it flushes where sometimes floss shreds, but my last waterpik (dental irrigator, I should say) broke and I haven't found a replacement yet.  I also brush my tongue (gently!) and rinse and gargle with warm water.  That seems to be enough for me.  If I were still having bad breath after all of that, I would look for another cause...like sinus or stomach problems.

I used to have those gross tonsil chunks, too!  Gargling with warm water used to break it up.  That nasty stuff has a name in Ayurvedic medicine, but I've forgotten it.  I haven't had that since BTD, so either dairy or wheat was probably causing it.  Using a Neti pot is probably a good idea, too.  I haven't tried oil pulling but I'm intrigued by the idea.  I don't want to loosen up any dental work, though (crowns/fillings).

My fiancee' always says i had bad breath.  Since taking probiotics, she says my breath has improved quite a bit.  In A fashion, I produce a lot of mucus when i eat something wrong or when i am around dust and pollen and stuff.  Probiotics seems to have reduced my mucus levels.  I also had acid reflux problems prior to using probiotics.

Main point - probiotics could really help bad breath.  Thats my theory and i'm sticking to it!

toothpaste = bicarb of soda mixed with 3% hydrogen peroxide.

mouthwash just 3% hydrogen peroxide.

they both work amazingly, i have been testing them for the last few months. bad breath is now a thing of the past.

hydrogen peroxide is a remarkable tool for other things too. but be careful with it and treat it with respect.

I have a mouth full of metal, systemic candida (not outwardly evident anymore, thankfully ) and other odds and ends you'd think would give me bad breath.  I don't have bad breath unless I'm coming down with something bacterial (a cough or whatnot).

Sinusitus can definately contribute to badbreath.  I believe i have some sinusitus.  I noticed also that eating too much of the wrong stuff makes mucus overflow for me.  I think this drips into my stomach and contributes to acid reflux.

It usually isn't bad, but around a lot of dust and sometimes with pollen, my breath seems to become bad chonically.  Add things like drinking beer with buddies, eating wrong things too much and to little right things, and i have a lot of drip.  Doesn't ever get stopped up though!

I'm trying to understand this stuff better.  I could have had allergies for awhile and never even thought i had em.

some people call it allergies, i call it eating the wrong food.

some people call it eczema, i call it eating the wrong food.

I had loads of allergies before i went on the BTD, now i have none, unless i eat the wrong food.

I could have written this post myself Policychecker. I also am a big fan of food grade 3% peroxide. Also rinsing your nose on a daily basis with a saline solution really helps if your problem stems from your sinuses.

I couldn't vote because I have never had bad breath, unless I didn't brush for 3 days. Permanent gingivitis damange, yes, but never dog breath.

Hydro-pero opens up the enamels pores each time and can lead to tooth sensitivity.   Bicarb is too rough a grain for me to brush my enamel with.

I noticed that fewer people have bad breath (or BO for that matter) than they did a few decades ago.  I think it is because we eat more fiber, so the bowels are cleaner.  The Body Odor problem is better because we all shower more often & many of us shower in the morning, whereas the custom used to be at night. I switched to AM showering in my early 20s (circa 1970) & feel more secure about any odor problem.  Being older,  I don't stink as much, but still I am careful....

Dairy would cause the sinuses to be bad as most of us know.
Yes, I am sure that diet is a big part of the issue. Yeah BTD!!!!

Quoted from Tom1964
I alternate sparkling mineral water (San Pellegrino for price, Gerolsteiners when I splurge) and spring water from the glass bottle so I'm getting water all day, but I don't believe too much.  


I was very interested when you said that you drink sparkling mineral water on a regular basis.

When I first became interested in LR4YT a few years ago I changed my 2 litres of water a day to 2 litres of sparkling mineral water a day.  Now for O's the recommended fluid is actually Seltzer water which does have a different taste to mineral water.  I have noticed recently that my tongue constantly feels "burnt" causing a terrible taste in my mouth and I am wondering if it is due to the amount of sparkling mineral water I have been drinking.

I will now stop drinking mineral water and go back to plain water and see if that makes a difference.

I am a non-secretor and brush and scrape my tongue once a day and spray the brush with hydrogen peroxide once a week before brushing and scraping.  I also brush my teeth once or twice a day with organic oxygenated olive oil and have no plaque on my teeth 2+ months after my last dental exam.  Good information about the use of oxygenated olive oil can be found on Dr. Joe Mercola's website.
