Halitosis - How to Reduce Bad Breath Naturally

Much has been written already on how to reduce halitosis or bad breath, perhaps too much. This is because despite the volume of what is written this problem persists to bother much of our population. Some experts say 20 to 50 percent of our population are so bothered.

There have been many prescriptions already on the elimination or control of foul odor from our mouth. Some of these include oral hygiene, avoidance of smoking, foods and drinks that cause bad breath, particularly alcohol.

Tips on Controlling Bad Breath

There have been many tips for the remedy of halitosis. These tips include brushing and flossing the teeth, rinsing the mouth, avoidance of foods and drinks with strong odor, keeping a well balanced diet, taking vitamin C to help the gums, eating yogurt, cheese, peanuts, and other foods that fight plaque build-up, eating less meat and more vegetables and fruits.

I myself had this problem for many years. And I tried so many ways to eliminate or reduce my bad breath. These included using special kinds of toothpaste, some of them very expensive, rinsing the mouth after eating, eating only vegetarian foods, chewing gums, etc. And yet the bad breath persisted. Naturally I would be embarrassed, especially when people came near me.

But here I will reveal what finally made me get rid of bad breath naturally. And you can try the same thing. I hope that you will also be successful in getting rid of this problem in your life.

Combination That Gets Rid of Bad Breath

It is a mixture of ordinary sugar, glucose, eucalyptus oil and citric acid. This mixture is found in some candies that are sold in ordinary stores.

I took this mixture for one week and my bad breath was gone.

I have also recommended this mixture to my close friends and they also have experienced the same result.

I discovered this by accident. I was also a victim before of abdominal pains. Whether the aches came from my intestines, or from my stomach, my gall bladder, or other parts of my abdomen I did not know. I used to take some anti-acid to get rid of these aches.

But one time having no anti-acid, like any of these cremaline drugs, I took this mixture of ordinary sugar, glucose, eucalyptus oil and citric acid found in an ordinary candy. I experienced instant relief. When an ache would attack again I would take again this mixture. And I would experience instant relief. Until the time came when the stomach aches were gone.

I noticed also that my bad breath disappeared. I do not have to take this mixture again and again. I just take it if I have some stomach ache. But as of this writing this is very rare now.

Different Theory About the Cause of Bad Breath

Having experienced this I have a different theory as to the cause of bad breath. Researchers say that it comes from the mouth. They also say that it cannot come from the stomach because the esophagus is a closed and collapsed tube. But my theory is that some kind of bad breath may come from the stomach, not directly because the passage way is a closed and collapsed tube but indirectly.

I base my theory on the fact that babies usually do not have bad breath. In fact they have a sweet smelling, pleasant breath. This is the case before they are able to eat meat. When they grow up and eat all sorts of foods, this pleasant breath disappears. Instead a foul breath begins to develop. Why do they have a pleasant breath when they are still babies? Probably it is because their stomach and intestines are still clean of food that rots, like meat.

But this is only a theory. More research needs to be done along this line.

But the fact remains that this mixture of ordinary sugar, glucose, eucalyptus oil and citric acid has eliminated bad breath from me and my close friends for the rest of our life. It is our way of reducing and even eliminating bad breath naturally. Look for these ingredients in the wrapper of candies in the store near you. It may help you a long way in reducing or even eliminating your bad breath.

The name of this candy in the Philippines is Snowbear Menthol Ball, manufactured by The Candymaker Incorporated.

Halitosis - How Bad Breath Can Affect Your Life

There are some bad things which when viewed from a different perspective are not so bad at all. In fact some of these bad things are a blessing. Many of us have heard or read the story of that young Chinese man who was exempted from serving in the army because he broke his bone while riding a horse. Having a broken bone is an evil, but being exempted from serving the army was a great blessing. But this is not the case with halitosis or bad breath.

No Good Thing in It Whatsoever

There is nothing I can think of that is good which we can get from bad breath no matter from what perspective we see it. It is bad and it causes bad things to happen in our life. Maybe the only good it can bring about is that we are prevented from whispering vulgar or obscene words to our close friends. But only on the condition that we are aware that we are emitting foul odor from our mouth. If we are not aware, we cannot even perform this act of kindness, of not breathing out foul odor to our friend.

Maybe another good thing bad breath can bring is for the cosmetics and drug manufacturers to make money by producing would be cures for this problem. But this does no good to the sufferer of halitosis. It only drains her pocket.

What is worse is that there is a tendency that we cannot detect it ourselves because our sense of smell has become used to the foul odor.

Foul odor from the mouth can affect you life for the worse when you are not aware of it. When you are aware you can fall victim to halitophobia, an excessive fear of bad breath.

I was for many years a victim of this foul odor from my mouth. I know from first hand experience how it can be embarrassing to me and to others and how it affects relationships, especially of the most intimate kind. It was a great relief when finally I got rid of this problem for the rest of my life.

Some data say that bad breath affects 20 to 50 percent of the population. That means it affects billions of people all over the world.

Negative Effects of Halitosis

The first negative effect halitosis can give to your life is in your social life. You will be wondering why people do not move near you and you may even notice that they go away from you. Some of those who go near you may give you a candy, a gum or a mint. At first you think they are kind to you by giving you something to chew upon. But when this happens again and again, you begin to wonder why. You will be and will feel embarrassed.

It can cause embarrassment when you see people putting handkerchief over their nose and mouth when they talk to you. It can increase your stress when working on something close with people. You become reluctant to engage in normal social activities, like dancing. If you always chew a gum, people may wonder and you look like a goat to them. People will be wondering why you yourself keep a handkerchief over your mouth. Halitosis can severely affect your personal relationships, even breaking them. It may even affect your marriage, especially in the morning after rising from sleep.

The second bad effect is in your career. People who interview you for a job are likely to think twice before accepting you as an employee even if your records speak highly of you. They would naturally not want to associate with someone whose mouth exudes foul odor.

During meetings you will notice that people will stay some distance away from you and you wonder why they avoid being close to you.

An important contract may not be signed simply because your would-be partner in the business venture does not like your foul breath.

Thirdly, if you tried several ways to get rid of it and you have not been successful, you think that you are condemned to this problem for the rest of your life. And your self-esteem suffers. And you are stressed.

Fourthly, when this problem is not properly dealt with this can cause discomforts and even diseases in your body. The bacteria that cause this foul odor are messengers also of diseases.

Finally, the worst affliction halitosis can give you is a low and lowering self-esteem. You become insecure about your self. Your self-confidence is undermined. You think you cannot be on the same level with other people. And then you cannot perform as best you can because of this problem.

I almost forgot. Maybe there is one good thing halitosis can give you. You may realize your body is not that clean as you think it is. And you take steps to remedy this situation, like eating less meat.

If such is the case, get rid of your bad breath.

Simple, Effective Relief for Constipation

Here is a simple, effective relief for constipation.

Constipation is irregular bowel movement, sometimes for days, and hard and dry stools occur, with the concurrent pain and discomfort.

Most writers who treat this topic do not say the obvious, that the simple, effective relief for constipation is within the human body. They may prescribe and discuss drugs or food that would help a person who has this problem. But they do not mention that the primary mechanism for solving this problem is within the human body.

Many People Have Constipation Problems

To illustrate the gravity of this problem, let us cite some statistics. It is estimated that 20 percent of any population in the world have constipation problems. People spend billions of dollar a year to buy laxatives and there are more than 10 million visits to clinics a year about this problem. Older people, they say, are more subject to this irregularity.

Of course there are laxatives sold to solve this problem. The problem with laxatives, as with other drugs, is that when they are stopped the problem recurs again. So, the person becomes dependent on drugs to escape constipation.

When I was a boy of 10 years old I thought that constipation was for the good of my body, because I was not disturbed to go to the toilet often. I would pride myself that for 1 week I did not go to the comfort room to excrete my solid waste.

But when I grew up, I realized I had a problem. My body would emit a foul odor that was annoying to those around me in school and at home. So, I had to move my bowels. I was frequently constipated. One time I ate soap. It was not effective.

Some Prescriptions for Constipation

Some prescribe a combination of banana, strawberry, lecithin, oil, milk, and apple, seeds of some flowers, magnesium. Besides the fact that you have to get these ingredients you have to mix them somehow. That takes some amount of money and time.

If you have this problem, your doctor would tell you to eat the right food and shun away from the bad food. In addition he would tell you to drink much water. As a last recourse he would prescribe a laxative. And in all probability you would obey your doctor.

The Cure for Constipation Is in the Human Body

But as I said, the simple, effective remedy for constipation is inside our human body. The human body has a built in clock. If it normally functions, as it should, it has all the needed procedures to expel our waste, both liquid and solid. But all this takes time. And our human body knows the proper time.

To prove to you that the human body has a built in timing device, try to take a nap when you are normally sleepy. Say to yourself that you will take a nap for 30 minutes. You will be surprised that at the end of 30 minutes you are wakened up by your own body.

Or try this other experiment. When you sleep at night tell yourself to wake up at such and such a time in the morning, not so early, not so late. Let's say 6 a.m. You will be surprised that at 6 a.m. the next day your body would wake you up.

This timing device of our body is precise so long as we do not disturb or abuse it. If we use it to wake us up in the morning, we follow it. If we do not follow it, it won't work anymore. Your body may no longer obey you.

This timing device can be used to eliminate waste from our body. Constipation usually starts when we feel the urge to move our bowels but because of some work or business at hand, or we are in a transportation, we postpone it. This disturbs the timing device of our body, and the next time this happens, it is as if the brain tells us, "When your body wanted to move your bowels, you did not comply, I will no longer tell you about this later." The digested food will continue to accumulate in our large intestines and the muscles in the intestines will no longer notify our brain because when they notified the brain previously the body did not act on it.

In other word the simple, effective remedy to constipation is to accede to our body's request to move our bowels and to have a regular daily schedule for this so that the body is used to the timing of moving the bowels.

In doing this we prevent constipation from happening in our body. If you ask me whether I suffer from constipation, I answer that I don't get constipated anymore at my age when statistics say I should. I just follow the natural rhythm of my body.

How To Cure Minor Wounds

Sometimes in our daily chores we inadvertently cut ourselves. While using a paper cutter we may accidentally cut also our finger. While slicing tomatoes we may cut our hand. While closing a car, a wire protrudes and scratches our legs. A wound ensues. Children incur wounds while playing or quarreling. We may not worry about the wound until it develops infection. It becomes irritatingly painful and swells. We go to our doctor and he prescribes an antibiotic to counteract the infection.

A little knowledge can help us effectively cure minor wounds and prevent infection.

For Minor Wounds Only

The wound has to be minor, otherwise we go to our doctor to have it stitched. A minor wound would be one that is no wider than 2.5 centimeters or 1 inch and no deeper than one half of a centimeter or one fourth of an inch.

The best home based remedy for minor wounds that I have discovered is moringa. Another name for this is horseradish tree because its roots look like radish.

Moringa is a tree which can grow almost anywhere where tree can grow except in places with frost. In the Philippines it is grown almost everywhere. You take a handful of its leaves, rob them between your hands to produce a sap out of the leaves and spread the sap over the wound. That's it. Before you apply the moringa sap you may want to wash the wound first with ordinary clean tap water.

Effects of the Moringa Sap on the Wound

The first effect of the application of moringa sap on the wound is that it takes away the pain. So it is a pain reliever.

The second effect is that it stops the bleeding. So it is a blood coagulant.

The third effect is that it prevents infection. So it is a natural antibiotic. Research indicate that moringa leaves contain essential amino acids, and are protein rich, have vitamins and minerals.

The healing process begins. There is no need to bandage the wound unless there are flies pestering the wound.

The process of spreading the moringa sap again on the wound may be repeated if you see some watery substance clinging to the wound or the wound has not yet completely closed. Otherwise one application is enough. In one or two days the minor wound is healed.

In places where there are no moringa trees, moringa capsules may be bought in the drugstores. The leaves have been commercially turned into capsules and are sold as food supplements. Open the capsules and spread the moringa powder over the wounds. These capsules are a lot cheaper than the antibiotic capsules. And they do not produce untoward side effects.

In case of infection or severe complication, as in the case of a diabetic person, a physician needs to be consulted.

Pranic Healing For a Healthier You

First we need to know what pranic healing is. Then we will discuss how it is done. We can only give the basics. This is only an introduction based on my learning of it and my years of doing the practice of pranic healing myself.

What Pranic Healing Is

Pranic healing is healing that uses the prana in our body. Prana is a Sanskrit word. It means life-force or the energy that flows in and through our body making us alive and active. It is a tragedy that this energy which makes us alive is not recognized as the energy also that makes us healthy. Because we do not use this life-energy which is also our health-energy we are overpowered by various ailments, many of which are minor, like the common colds or flu, but are irritating and make us less productive.

In many healing sessions which we see on TV or in religious gatherings for healing we see the laying on of hands on the heads of people. This is a portion and version of pranic healing but the ones doing it mostly do not know why they are really doing it or why it is done to them. They may lay their hands because that is what they read in the Bible. They do not know the reason why such laying of hands is a means of cure.

The Popularizer of Pranic Healing

We give credit to whom credit is due. The one who popularized pranic healing is Master Choa Kok Sui. He wrote a book on pranic healing which can be easily understood by the open minded. I bought this book in 1989. After several tries, I was able to apply the directions in the book effectively. Master Choa now boasts that anybody can practice pranic healing with the system which he has explained so clearly in his book.

How Pranic Healing Is Done

A few guiding principles need to be stated first. Some of these have to be taken by faith because we cannot see the elements of these principles by our eyes. But they are there. And we know they are true because the techniques which are based on these principles effect cures.

The most fundamental principle of pranic healing is that the body is a self-repairing living organism that possesses the natural capacity to heal itself.

The second principle is that the healing process is made faster by putting or projecting the prana or life force or vital energy on the affected part of the physical body.

A third principle is that our body is wrapped by a triple layer of energy. With the aid of Kirlian photography (named after Semyon Kirlian) Master Choa was able to illustrate that the human body is like an egg where there is the yoke or inmost circle of energy, the egg white or albumen, the middle circle of energy, and the shell or the outermost circle of energy.

The fourth principle which is surprising is this. When a sickness is about to invade the body, these three circles undergo an imbalance or disfigurement. This happens before the person actually feels sick. In other words when the person is healthy these three circles of energy are well formed, like the three elements in a fowl’s egg: the yoke, the white or albumen and the shell. When sickness is about to come these three become deformed or misshapen.

The fifth principle is this. When a person is sick the task of the healer is to restore the uniform or shapely formation of these three circles of energy. The healer does this by getting energy from his surroundings, especially solar energy if it is day.

The basic technique is with one hand the healer absorbs energy from around him, like raising his open palm to the direction of the sun, and with the other hand he puts this in the direction of his patient, supplying this patient with energy to restore the balance of energy in his body. He does not touch his patient. He only puts his hand in the direction of the affected part of his patient. In my case I raise my left open palm in the direction of the source of the energy, like the sun or a big tree, and I extend my right open palm on the affected part of the body.

But there is a caution before doing this technique. The energy around the patient is mostly polluted because of the sickness. This pollution needs to be cleaned. Master Choa has a technique for cleaning this pollution. Basically it is grasping this pollution by one’s cupped fingers and putting it into a fireball which burns this pollution. You do not see the fireball with your eyes but you make this fireball with the technique given by Master Choa. He also explains the different uses of colors in healing. All these are colors of energy and they are invisible to the eyes. There are different colors for different diseases and they have to be learned.

A basic requirement for the practice of pranic healing is that the healer or practitioner has a modicum of the ability to concentrate. Those who are used to the practice of daily meditation have an advantage. But anyone who is patient enough to learn how to concentrate can perform pranic healing.

After a while of practicing pranic healing you can feel the prana or life-energy vibrating in your hands. And you can project it to the sick parts of the body.

For What Kinds of Diseases Is Pranic Healing?

Pranic healing is not for all kinds of diseases. It cannot be used to readily stop bleeding or arrest the malignant growth of cancer. It is best for minor diseases like the common cold, cough, flu, or bacterial infections. These are indeed minor but they can cause so much inconvenience to our family and work if we do not take care of them. While pranic healing cannot be used to stop the bleeding of wounds it can be used to make the wound heal faster.

Advantages of Pranic Healing

The advantages of pranic healing over other ways of healing, like administering drugs, are that you do not touch the patient so there is no danger of molesting or disturbing him/her, he/she can continue to sleep; no medication is taken so there is no danger of complication.

Water Therapy For a Healthier You

Water therapy, as the name implies, is the use of water to effect a cure in our body. This discussion will also incorporate my own experience in the use of this “medicine”.

How Much Water?

Most literature on water therapy will tell you to drink 1.5 liters of water upon rising up in the morning, before brushing your teeth and before taking any food.

When I began water therapy I did this, I drank 1.5 liters of water. Then I came across another literature which told me that the amount of water to drink is .64 liter. Eventually I settled for .75 liter of water. This was most convenient for me because most of the bottles for whisky contained .75 liter of fluid. So I just use an empty bottle, which had contained .75 liter of whisky before being emptied, to measure the water that I drink. I found out that I could drink this amount of water in one gulp, without stopping. Then I drink two glasses of water after every meal.

When I first started with water therapy I experienced frequent urination after drinking the water. After a while this was no longer so. I would experience 1 or 2 urinations only within an hour.

How Many Minutes Before Eating After Drinking Water?

Also most literature will tell you not to take anything solid or liquid after drinking the water for 1 hour. Again I saw another literature which says that the time is 45 minutes. So I followed the 45 minutes.

What Kind of Water?

Some literature on water therapy says that the water should be boiled. I do not use this. I just use ordinary tap water that has been filtered.

Perceived Effects in My Case

What are the perceived effects of water therapy? In my case these are its perceived effects:

1. My body is cleaned. My body with the help of this water excretes its waste together with the toxins piled within it through urination and defecation. Because of this cleaning property of water, diseases borne in the food and beverages we drink are flushed out. There is no more problem of constipation. Bacteria that cause common colds and coughing are washed out of the body. I experience general well being.

2. The skin of my body no longer experiences dryness and so, being moisturized I do not feel too much heat. I feel comfortable throughout the day.

3. Water contains oxygen. This oxygen goes to my brain making me alert mentally. Thus water therapy helps me to think well and to concentrate on my work.

4. I am no longer thirsty between meals. Unlike before when in between meals I have to look for water because I would experience thirst. Thus I save time and my work continues without undue interruption.

Diseases Cured by Water Therapy

One literature lists these diseases as some of those cured by water therapy: headache, body aches, heart diseases, arthritis, epilepsy, excessive fat, bronchitis, asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urinary diseases, vomiting gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, menstrual disorders, ear-nose-throat diseases.

Some other lists are longer than this.

The list is rather inclusive of most diseases. Since I do not have these diseases I cannot say I was cured of these diseases by water therapy. What I can say maybe is that my practice of water therapy helped me to avoid these diseases. Maybe. We have no proof. But it is wonderful feeling well with water therapy.

Another list will even tell you how many days it will take you to cure a certain disease with water therapy. An example is high blood pressure. This listing says that high blood pressure will be cured after 30 days of water therapy. Diabetes will also be cured after 30 days, according to this listing. There are some testimonies which attest to the effectiveness of water therapy on these diseases. One can give it a try.

What is important is that water is a cleansing agent, both inside and outside the body. Choose what suits you after experimenting with your intake of water.

A Caution

There have been too many testimonies in favor of water therapy. But we also have to take into consideration some observations that are not in favor of it. Medical experts say that there is such a thing as water intoxication or water poisoning. Well, as in all things the extreme is always to be avoided.

Needless to say I do not use water therapy when I travel. To do so would inconvenience me and the other passengers by my stopping the vehicle to urinate.

Seven Health Care Predictions: Better Health for More People

Health care is evolving. Despite the fact that we are hearing and reading of new diseases coming up among the population, such as the dreaded SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), and others, health care is also improving. The new trend is that it is getting more patient centered and more close to nature. Here are some of the changes that we will continue to see in the following years.

1. More Patient Centered

The new trend in health care is that it will get more and more patient centered. More and more rooms in the hospitals are now air-conditioned for the convenience of the patient. More and more chemicals have been invented to fight off pain from the patient. Most injections are now administered no longer to the body directly but through the intravenous connection bringing liquid from a plastic container to the patient. The anesthesiologists have become experts in deadening the pain of an operation. The hospital building, rooms and surroundings are now cleaner than ever. Each room, even in the wards, have now a comfort room and bath facilities. In the 1980s there was a large government hospital for a million population which had only one comfort room for all the patients. This is no longer true today. Mercury-based thermometers and sphygmomanometer are now being replaced by digital ones, for the safety of the patients against mercury poisoning or contamination. Headrest in hospital beds can now be raised with a few turns of a handle. More wheel chairs are now available to move patients around with little discomfort for them. Ambulances are available to transfer patients from homes to hospitals and back to their homes or other hospitals. Indeed more and more conveniences are now given to the patients. We will see more of these as the years go by.

2. A Return to Nature

Another new trend in health care is that there will be more and more return to nature, particularly herbs as curative agents. After all people are discovering that these herbs are as effective as the synthetic drugs and there are no or less bad side effects. People are getting more and more conscious of the food they eat. The number of vegetarians is increasing. More and more people are taking food supplements. As a result food supplements have multiplied. In one report we have 639 pages of listing of food supplements, each page containing around 40 names of food supplements. Food supplements, especially, the ones based on herbs will continue to multiply.

3. More People Taking Control of their Health

We are going to see more people taking control of their health, especially in the area of preventing diseases. This is clearly now the new trend in health care. Perhaps this is just logical since the cost of consulting a physician is getting higher and higher, to cover up, some say, for the more and more expensive education the medical doctors are going through.

4. Cheaper Medicines

As a result of people returning to herbs, governments are pressing for cheaper medicines. We will have cheaper medicines. An example is the sale of dextrose which has become cheaper with the use of plastic containers rather than glass. Medicines will continue to be more generic and less expensive. There are more and more drug stores selling only generic drugs.

5. Alternative Medicine

In general people will be getting more and more into alternative medicines. These are medicines that do not fall within the category of conventional medicine, the medical practice most of us are accustomed to because of our western culture. These include natural cures, chiropractice, herbs, traditional Chinese medicine, pranic or energy healing, meditation, hypnosis, etc. The new trend in the use of alternative medicine will continue in the years ahead.

6. Continuing Diversification and Specialization

The diversification and specialization of health care personnel will continue to increase. Forty years ago it was the physician himself who put on the fluoroscopy machine, took the x-ray picture of his patient, analyzed it. Now we have medical technicians to do this. They even have a high sounding name now, medical technologists. Besides the ever growing group of medical specialists we now have the physical therapists for exercising the movements of the body, the nutritionists for the food of the patient, the health insurance company and the social worker for the payment of hospital bills, the hospital administrator for the management of the hospital facilities, let alone the chaplain for the anxious and dying patients. More specialized services will continue to appear.

7. Distance Health Care

If there is distance education there is also distance health care. This is the last new trend in health care that I see. We will have more of this in the future. It is very rare now for us to experience being visited by the doctor at our homes, as this was done 50 years ago. This happens now only among very close friends or relatives of the doctors. There was a time when a doctor would go around town treating current and would-be patients. That is gone now. We have now consultation by cell phones. A doctor has a radio program. The audience listens. The doctor gives his cell phone number. By and by he is inundated with text messages about this and about that ailment experienced by his radio listeners. And he gives advice on his cell phone too by text messaging his listeners. Who knows, later on we can have doctors analyzing their patients from a distance with the aid of electronic equipment.

Indeed health care has evolved. Now that you know these are the directions health care is going to go, the new trends in health care, be more conscious of your own health. You owe it to yourself to be healthy.

But these are just predictions. Be prepared to be surprised with newer developments in health care. But we are very far from the one tablet that cures all diseases.
