Sinus-related Bad Breath

Posted by Peter (Auckland) on 11/22/2006

Hi, I have has sinus-related bad breath for years. There seems to be no way to fix the sinus problem but i am more worried about the breath anyway. It seems clear from the research that it is from nasty bacteria in the mouth that feed off the mucous. I have tried everything but nothing is works. Hydrogen Peroxide seemed effective for a couple of days but now it appears the bacteria have somehow made a come back. Anyone have any ideas?

Peter: Halitosis is a condition when your body is acid and the bacteria grows causing halitosis. So if you take 1/2 teaspoon in the morning of baking soda and 1/2 glass of water twice a day, the acidity would reduce and there will be less bacterial colonies residing. The critical issue is to take 25 mg of zinc acetate/or zinc citrate or zinc gluconate supplements twice a day and consider using a mouthwash that have zinc chloride, such as Lavoris. I make my own mouthwash, using 1% zinc chloride and added some peppermint and thyme oil. Preparing a potassium bicarbonate or sodium bicarbonate with some sea salt mouthwash should also help reduce bacterial colonies. Cavities and halitosis maybe related and I think taken molybdenum supplements will help, in the form of sodium molybdate. If you do have trouble seeing in the dark a bit and have bad breath, molybdenum does protect the body from these two dissimilar conditions.

Consider doing oil pulling with 1 drop of peppermint oil this will remove some heavy metals from the body but in a very few cases, it seems to remove the amalgam tooth filings too. For some reason amalgam tooth fillings with heavy metals seems to promote fungus growth and this might lead to halitosis.

Most of all is to avoid eating acid forming food, such as coffee, tea, white bread, and white flour, pastries and all sweet foods. Just eating dark green vegetables and whole fruits works the best.
