TED'S SUGGESTIONS FOR A WHITE HAIRY TONGUE AND BAD BREATH?

Posted by Anonymous on 05/30/2011

Dear Ted, I have a huge problem which I just don't know the answer for. The problem is I have a very white hairy tongue and also very bad breath (maybe because of the hairy tongue). I have tried so much to no avail. Do you maybe have an answer to my problem? I would be so happy if you do.

Hydrogen peroxide 1% to 1.5% as a mouthwash will eliminate some problems. The bad breath is likely to be sulfide producing bacteria. Use iodine mouthwash or mix it with hydrogen peroxide, Lugol's solution 1-2 drops. If she has constipation is tied to bad breadth, so I would try potassium citrate 1/4 teaspoon after meal once a day or if more needed twice a day.
