I notice a bad taste in my mouth, what mouthwash should I use?

© Jacob Trager DDS

The countless millions spent on fresh breath points out a serious health problem which our society conveniently covers over with mouthwash. Bad breath or halitosis has a number of cases and in order to solve the problem effectively, the causes have to be addressed.

Here stress plays an important part. Stress causes a constriction in our body function and in the mouth affects saliva (which neutralizes harmful bacteria and acids) and other digestive functioning. Improper respiratory function can also contribute to a breath problem.

Perhaps the most important organ in our body to control bad breath is the tongue (a powerful filtration and purifying system that works similarly to the kidney. Tongue cleanliness and optimum functioning can go a long way toward healthy, fresh breath. Exercising the tongue increases tongue resiliency and increases resistance to harmful bacteria.

We recommend an alcohol free mouthwash with nutritionally healing properties.
