Will My Bad Breath Go Away When I Cure My Yeast Infection
Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with a question. My breath is really bad and I have a yeastinfection. Will the bad breath go away when I'm cured? Well, bad breath can come from many differentreasons. Look at your diet, for example. Are you eating the right kind of foods? Are youkeeping your teeth and gums clean? What does your tongue look like? Is it pale; is it white? I'm going to do a lot more tutorials on tonguesigns and symptoms, but suffice it to say, if you've got bad breath, look at your tongue.If there's a white coating on it, you've probably
got poor bacteria and yeast in your digestivesystem. So coating at the back of the tongue will signify a problem further down; the sigmoidcolon or rectum. So with bad breath, try these tricks. Lookafter your gums and teeth quite well. Don't forget to brush your tongue, something a lotof people don't do. Pop your toothbrush in a bit of water with hydrogen peroxide at nightto kill any bacteria, and make sure you floss your teeth quite well and look after yourgums. It's very important. Chew your food properly. Take some digestive enzymes. Don'teat in front of screens. One in five people in America now have one of their meals ofthe day in front of Facebook, and a lot of
people have their evening meal watching thesix o'clock news. It's not a good idea. So make sure you develop some good habits andchew food properly and slowly away from screens. And take your time when you're eating yourmeal. Eating a good wholesome, fresh foods dietis going to help a lot to prevent bad breath. I've seen quite a few patients just live onmeat and potatoes, for example, and have not many vegetables in their diet. Seventeen percentof people in England don't even eat any fruit or vegetables. That's quite a lot isn't it?Try and develop some good healthy habits first before you start looking further afield withhalitosis, another word for bad breath.
A key thing I look for in people is stomachproblems. You could well have an infection called, helicobacter pylori or Hpylori, andI'll do some tutorials on Hpylori and explain this concept more in detail. So there's a big chance that your bad breathwill go away when your digestion's cleared up. So I hope that answers your question aboutbad breath and yeast infections. Thank you.
