I am 28 years old, slim-athletic figure , used to be fit most of my life and did plenty of sports. Diet was pretty good all along. I am a very analytical-minded guy, but I'm also very interested in emotional and spiritual practices. I study Chinese medicine nowadays, and very interested in all forms of health lately. Struggled BB since the age of 7, and constant awful sour taste in my mouth. Suffered with bloating since the age of 3-4, not even kidding. Also suffered chronic constipation - once every 3 days or so. Sweaty-palms as well.
Today I noticed something odd. It's been a while since I had BB, and it was very normal and nothing thrilling.
I was struggling for over 20 years with bad breath, and now that it's gone, it feels so natural, like I never suffered from it. This had kind of disturbed me, how so much suffering is barely remembered once it's gone! Therefore, I'd like to share my experience with you, so perhaps one or two of you you can feel that way too.
My first memory of BB was at the age of 7 more or less. I was sitting in my mother's car, exhaled at her for some reason which I can't remember, and she ask me what I was eating because my breath smelled bad.
Later on I especially struggled and suffered in intimate relationships and social events, and had some really unpleasant situations to deal with. I HATED having bad breath and I know my life would be much different if I hadn't have it. I wanted to die every other day, cause by life sucked.
When I was 16 I went to a gastro specialist and was diagnosed with acid reflux, even though I don't have reflux. Most doctors are crap really (sorry for being out loud). Know nothing of cures, and only label you with diseases. Some of them are nice, though.
He puts me on PPIs which didn't help (duh...).
He also told me I have Hiatal Hernia, and since then I walked around with the belief that something is broken in my body. That I'm damaged on the inside and there's nothing I can do about it.
Years went by, and I was still afraid of getting close to people, physically and emotionally.
Anyway, today I am 28 y/o and I am bad breath free. I explored and tried every conventional method, and some really risky ones including MMS.
Changing my diet
About 30 different supplements (about $500-$600 worth).
All sorts of gums and mouthwashes
Checked my teeth and tonsils
MMS - aka chlorine dioxide - very powerful and somewhat dangerous substance.
What worked best for me was a good tongue scraper, and chewing gums. It wasn't a cure, but a good scrape a few times a day + plenty of gum, really saved me.
The MMS helped me to clean the mouth of bacteria for 4-5 hours, but it was time consuming and didn't feel right.
Then I heard some smart doctor saying:
"It's nearly impossible to get rid of bacteria. The bacteria is chosen by the environment. If you change the environment you can change the bacteria".
Bacteria will come back because you can't kill 100% of them. You just can't - even with MMS which shutters their bio-films. Bacteria is multiplying like crazy and you get back to where you started really quickly.
So I was thinking, how the hell could I change the environment?
I started digging about low and high pH levels. Alkaline vs Acidic environment and what it really meant.
I watched hundreds of hours of videos on health, and BB in particular. This led me to some guy who's making fresh juice to heal chronic diseases. He introduced me to the world of juicing, and let me tell you - these juices are miracle.
Juicing is probably the best way to alkaline your body, nurturing it with:
Fresh hydrating water
and much more... and I meant it!
They cure cancer with juices, and other chronic diseases (Google: Gerson Therapy). So bad breath is a walk in the park HAHA It's nothing like curing cancer. It's much easier and less stressful.
So... I decided to buy a standard centrifugal $100 juicer, and started juicing. At first carrots and apples. I knew it's important to start with something easy (not advanced juices), so I can do it. After about a week or two I started adding beets, celery, lemons and ginger.
Along with the juices, I started eating more raw foods:
plenty of fruits and vegs.
I took off diary almost completely (some ice-cream about once a week), I eat about 4-6 eggs a week, about 1-2 chicken meals (200-300g) and one red meat (300g).
Now back to the juice miracle - these started taking me to the toilet on a daily basis. My system could get rid of toxins! I was going every day instead of once in 3 days.
This gave my liver a chance to clean my blood and do it's work.
In Chinese medicine, we learn about how to get our body into balance. All our organs are closely connected and related to each other, and the liver is the key organ. Heal the liver, and be disease free (BB is a disease).
Anyway, I know it's really hard to give up on all the junk foods, and I eat some junk here and there, but my liver can take it, since I'm a very healthy dude now. But you really need to give it up. Being healthy could be hard, because you have to give up your comfort food, and face the emotional issues that underlie your cravings. But when you are ready to make a change, your life will change and you'll thank god for being alive.
So this is my recipe:
- Juicing a lot!
Eating more raw foods
eliminating processed, junk foods and diary
These are the results:
- Bad breath free.
Clean pink tongue.
No more sour taste.
No more sweaty palms.
Much less bloat after meals.
Sweaty-palms - GONE! my hands are so softs and not so cold anymore
Almost no depression (reduced by 98% or so)
Many emotional and physiological benefits which are endless and hard to metion.
