There are many reasons for bad breath. If you don’t have a problem with your teeth or gums, look to your digestion. Bad breath can come up from the intestines. You may notice it now more than ever if you are wearing masks. Improve your digestion, but that takes some time. I just read about a quick fix. If you use it, please let me know how it works for you.
Take a slice of cucumber and hold it to the roof of your mouth for at least 30 seconds. When I read something like this, of course maybe it works maybe it doesn’t. I always weigh the pros and cons of using it. There are no cons. It is a cucumber for goodness sake. If it doesn’t work, you aren’t left with pain (like using statins) or a blood clot (remember the old birth control pill), so you might as well try it.
Try it and come see me and let’s work on your digestion! When I was a kid, if you had a stomach ache, you were sick. Many people live with gut aches. And please remember the connection between the gut and the brain and recognize that your brain health, think depression, is often caused by your gut health!! Enjoy the end of summer!!
