My sister doing low carb diet and she started to have bad breath  because of that even though she brushes and her teeth are all okay . Is that anything she can eat to get rid of this?

drink lots of water and maybe make some parsley pesto type relish......without the onions and garlic, of course.

She needs to make sure she is eatting her vegs... also to eat not just beef only... other types of meats... don't forget to scrape your tongue and floss..

Quoted Text
Ketosis can be a cause of bad breath, since some of the ketones formed are exhaled from the lungs. Additionally, the digestive tract may slow somewhat in the absence of cleansing vegetables and fruit, which slowdown can also cause bad breath -- as can build up of bacteria on the teeth, tongue and gums.

Most chlorophyl in the US is made from......alfalfa.  Type O Avoid.

OH! I might be able to help  you here... my husband has been on the BTD for awhile now and losing a lot of weight...   but his breath was really bad .. I suppose because he was losing weight.. and he is a physician, and I  really told him he couldn't talk to patients with that kind of breath!!!  total turn off!!!    but no matter how much he brushed his teeth or flossed, he had it...

this happened once before, and I got some special toothpaste from the dentist..  so this time I just went to the drug store and bought this special toothpaste and mouthwash   especially suited for this problem.. it is called Thera  Breath... there is a toothpaste and a mouthwash...  this cleared the bad breath up immediately!!   it worked as well as the special stuff from the dentist..... so maybe look for that.. it worked for my husband.. and now I don't  have to worry about him killing his patients with bad breath....
but I do NOT let him eat garlic.. or my sons..  or me.. I know garlic   is a  good for you food.. but  I can smell garlic breath a mile away.. ..  and I find it so unattractive!  I have some very good friends who eat it and it almost kills me... it's in so many processed  vegetarian foods... like canned soups...     Amy's Organics in particular.. so  I  prepare most everything from scratch   to avoid the garlic.... I'm not sure if this Therea Breath  can override the garlic or not..

Let's all keep in mind how much surface area there is in the mouth.  Cleaning our teeth is only a part of oral hygiene.  We also need to clean the roof of the mouth, inside the cheeks and the gums;  But especially the tongue!  What a breeding bed of bacteria the tongue is!  I'm amazed at how many coated tongues I see everyday, and it reflects into the breath.

A great way to clean the tongue is to do the "Lion", which is a yoga pose for the health of the throat, vocal cords and the lymph glands in the throat:
Take a deep breath through the nose.
Exhale through the mouth, while opening the mouth as wide as possible and sticking the tongue out as far as you can.  In this position, either use your tongue scraper or your toothbrush, and clean the tongue until it is all clean.  

This practice makes a great difference in the smell of the breath and a nice side effect is the improved health of the throat.  

After cleaning the mouth and tongue, the mucous in the nasal cavity will be loosened, so this is the ideal time to blow the nose and massage the inside of the nostrils with a natural herbal salve, with ingredients like olive oil, shea butter, calendula, vit. E, etc.  Calendual salve by the Super Salve company is my favorite.  http://www.supersalve.com

also, if one has ANY teeth missing, your teeth will shift towards each other and create pockets for food to stay trapped. Even an hour in there will cause problems.  :-/

Sonicare toothbrush works great for bad breath as well

There is some  oxygenating component in this

TheraBreath

that makes this really work!!   I am usually quite skeptical about things like this, but this  combination of toothpaste and mouthwash knocked the bad breath out   like lightening!!!  it iwas created by this doctor who is known for his work in fresh breath... specializes in bad breath problems... hope you try this!

I think my O-compagnero Yamanilein would recommend in case of overloads of garlicsmells: just go for
raw parsil intake ::) ;)  but the healthbenefits of this stuff is most important; if it stinks or not...doesn't bother ;) ;D ......and arent' there other plants fromwhich chlorophyl might be won than alfalfa??)

I just read in an article that lisalea posted on another thread, that constipation can cause bad breath.  :-/

sorry.. I'd rather smell like a rose than stink of garlic breath...


those vampires knew there  was something awful out there when they hid from the garlic... giggles...

Personally, I believe that halitosis is just another acute symptom of some underlying problem, just like headaches, heartburn, constipation, etc.  Oral hygiene is critical, but when dealing with a chronic condition, it's just another dose of tums or advil.  IMHO.  :)

Chlorella may assist with the problem internally.

Externally, I believe chewing fresh parsley and ginger root may help 'cover up' a challenged breath.

She doesn't have bad breath if she eats carbs, now she does because of low carb diet. Her teeth are perceft condition and tongue is clean. Just because of this diet smell comes almost like from stomach. She will try that toohpaste Sheri mentioned...

Yes,  we sort of got off track on the garlic breath.. but the point here is bad breath from the low carb /  losing weight issue.. this is where that TheraBreath really worked for my husband..  he  was not eating any foods that would cause  bad breath in general .. i.e.. garlic, onions..    it  was just coming from the stomach, which is why brushing the teeth wasn't helping...  I don't know why this TheraBreath works..  

be sure she follows the directions on the back when using this.. I think it's important..   there are some specifics...

this was  created by Dr. Harold Katz for  people who are really struggling with bad breath issues...best of luck!!!

Here is a list of ingredients in TheraBreath, from their website.

TheraBreath Toothpaste Ingredients:

sorbitol, hydrated silica, water(aqua), aloe barbadensis gel, glycerin, OXYD-8 (stabilized ClO2), tetrapotassium pyrophosphate, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, sodium lauryl sarcosinate, carrageenan, xylitol, sodium fluoride, essential oil of peppermint, sodium benzoate

If the smell seems to arise from the stomach, it sounds like ketosis caused odor.  I agree with the advice to use chlorophyl.

exactly, Victoria...

this stuff, the TheraBreath, really goes to work on the ketosis odor and works like a charm!!!

I have also  tried    the chlorophyl   pills with limited success... but the TheraBreath  is the charm that got my husband back seeing patients with fresh fresh breath to go with his great smile!!!  I just couldn't   stand the thought of him knocking out his patients as he spoke to them with  his breath...  this stuff is a miracle!

Undigested foods cause bad breath. If she is a Type A  or AB that may well the case with a large part of the diet coming from meat. When food isn't digested fully it starts to ferment and becomes food for bacteria (and they're often stinky).

I would opt for something natural as Victoria stated in lieu of a product with all those chemicals ... just my opinion!  ;)

Dr. D says that chronic halitosis can be a symptom of a bacterial overgrowth of the intestines.  He recommends following the antibiotic protocol listed in his blood type encyclopedia.

The encyclopedia listed astragalus as an antibacterial substance for me (type O).  When I took it regularly, my halitosis disappeared.

Just for the record, I am not recommending TheraBreath.  :-)

I don't have an opinion on it since I've never used it and have not researched the topic much.  The ingredient list was just for educational purposes for those of you who were interested.

Ronagon,
great tip, thanks!

so does anyone know why that bad breath from the depths of the bowel  often accompanies weight loss?   I wouldn't consider that an imbalance per say, but maybe it is  ....

I  know we call this ketosis in some instances, but I'm just curious  about the  difference in this as opposed to the bad breath we get from eating garlic, onions.. etc....

Garlic and onion breath, and this is just my guess, would be from the sulfur compounds.

The bad breath from weight loss, and this is just my guess as well, would be from your body detoxing the extra bad stuff in your muscles and fat that was being stored.

I wonder if yeast overgrowth can cause bad breath.  Wouldn't surprise me.

I do know that after I was on the BTD I quit having to scrape my tonsils.  My husband and I both used to have to knock off white globs that would taste and smell terrible.  (I'm sure everybody wanted to hear that.) Now neither of us have them, thanks to the BTD.

I agree that onion breath is caused by the sulfur compounds and that when losing weight the body is removing toxins.  

I've read that when this toxicity is waste from candida, it is very difficult for the body to digest.  This could account for gas and odor during this process.  I know I have some periods of both, individually and together.  I eat parsley to reduce odor, and take fennel for gas and ginger to aid digestion.  Sometimes I think I'm turning into a spice cabinet... ;D  Better than a chemical factory!!! :P

If almost everyone except Sheri thinks about ThreaBreath is chemical factory, what about  regular toothpaste we all use? OR very out of subject but anti pressants we buy, because I know I have to, I have tried to buy one doesn't have aliminuim and all the bad stuff for us, but didn't do anything for me, I was sweating less than an hour after taking a shower.  I was very uncomfortable that I throw away that one and bought one has alimium unfortunetely...

Is your sister following the BTD? If not, I suggest she follow the correct BTD for her type. Do you know her blood type?

Quoted from Ronagon
Dr. D says that chronic halitosis can be a symptom of a bacterial overgrowth of the intestines.  He recommends following the antibiotic protocol listed in his blood type encyclopedia.

Dr. D also talks about this Halitosis being caused by high polyamine levels in LR4YT on pages 104-107, but I suggest you read the whole short chapter, pages 97-108.

I've been using essential peppermint oil lately......just that...a couple drops on the back of the tongue and it seems to work for me.  Some of it gets into my stomach and the rest is on tongue.  Essential oils are supposed to be very good anti bacterial fighters.  It's strong so watch out.

Thank You Sheri So Much! (clap)(dance)

TheraBreath helps like a charm. She is not even having a morning bad breath anymore.

might be also when ketocorps are broken down that this smell or breath might occure, similar to MoDon's suggestions, one thing which helps also tremendiously is, to go for balancing the ph of tissues by the higher intake of minerals but here it should be coated to pass by the stomachacidity.......
o for a longer detoxphase :D ...... sustain with minerals and btd compliant herbs .......
