Hey guys. Dr. Axe here, Doctor of Functional
Medicine and founder of DrAxe.com. In today’s video I’m going to share with you the six
steps you need to follow in order to cure bad breath. Obviously, nobody likes bad breath,
but the bigger thing is it’s typically an underlying sign that there’s something not
going right in your body, and that tends to be a bacterial imbalance or lack of detoxification.
So if things tend to sit in your system or if there’s an imbalance of good probiotics
and bacteria and microbes in your body to bad, those are typically what are actually
causing some of your issues. So to start I’m going to go over the six things that you need
to do. The number one thing you need to do in order
to overcome bad breath is get more probiotics in your diet. Consume more probiotic rich
foods, especially things like grass-fed yogurt and kefir, and take a quality probiotic supplement.
For many of you guys you want to double-down and take a double dose of probiotics a day.
But probiotics, without a doubt, can help kill off yeast and bad bacteria and those
sort of microbes that can be causing bad breath. So again, probiotics are crucial. The next thing you want to do, number two,
is use peppermint essential oil. Peppermint oil gives that lasting fresh breath taste,
has a pleasant odor, and also has certain types of compounds in it that actually can
help kill off bad bacteria in your body. So again, peppermint oil. What I like to do is
actually I make a homemade toothpaste, mixing probiotics, coconut oil, peppermint oil, and
a little bit of baking soda. You can make a homemade toothpaste that way that actually
gives you some great tasting breath. You can even add just a drop of peppermint oil to
your water a few times a day, and it can be used in that way. The third thing you want to do to eliminate
bad breath is use some baking soda. In fact, after a meal you can just put in a pinch of
baking soda. Now you typically want to do this between meals, not during meals, but
a little bit of baking soda as well can help eliminate bad breath. The reason is baking
soda is very alkaline, and other ways to alkalize your body and help improve your breath is
by drinking more green juices. Now you don’t want to do juices that have fruit because
those will actually make your breath worse. But doing green juices, especially wheat grass
juice, things that are high in chlorophyll, like kale and parsley and cilantro, a lot
of those leafy greens, cucumber and celery, those can help eliminate bad breath, which
brings me to my next one. Parsley. In fact, parsley is known for helping
eliminate the odor from garlic. So if you have too much garlic or something or too much
vinegar and your breath smells like that, parsley has been shown to help neutralize
odor. Part of the reasons is it is one of the highest herbs and vegetables in chlorophyll,
if not the highest. So again, using parsley. You can just chew on some parsley after a
meal or add it to a salad or juice it. Those are great ways to add parsley into your diet. And then last, but not least, drink more water
with lemon or lemon essential oil. You know water really helps keep things moving in your
systems, helps flushing things out. So again I recommend take your body weight in water,
ounces of water. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you want to be drinking 75 ounces of water
a day. Make sure you’re getting plenty of water. Again, I add either a little bit of
lemon juice or a drop or two of lemon essential oil, which can help continue to clear out
candida and some of those things out of your system that can be causing bad breath. So those are the six things you do want to
do. I want to mention this finally. The things that can really cause bad breath is consuming
too much sugar. That plain and simple is one of the biggest things that will cause bad
breath. So again, reducing your sugar intake, loading up more on healing foods like vegetables
will also help. If you do that, you’re going to see great
results. Hey, if you want to find some natural, do-it-yourself recipes using things like peppermint
oil, I have a couple of recipes for homemade toothpaste and homemade mouthwash if you search
on DrAxe.com. Just go to DrAxe.com and search toothpaste or homemade toothpaste and search
mouthwash, and you’ll find it in our DIY recipe section. I know that if you use those products
and follow these six steps, you’re going to see great improvements in your breath. And by the way, if you’ve enjoyed this video,
