Bad Breath And Bad Candida

August 20, 2019

Thanks for checking out my video. I’m going
to talk about bad breath today. Something that we don’t really want to talk about. Some
of us have had bad breath in the past. Some may have it right now. I just had an interesting
case today from the UK, a 53-year-old lady. I’m not going to mention this woman’s name
or details. She’s a long-term Candida sufferer and her breath’s quite bad, so she’s very
embarrassed. She’s actually working in a public service job, and she’s very embarrassed about
her breath. Her husband died quite a few years ago now
in a car accident, which gave her quite a lot of stress and grief. She’s had her gall
bladder out. Doctor’s advice, basically, was just to use mouth rinses, ridiculous advice.
Sugar is a problem. Loves sugar. Craves sugar. It’s a problem. She loves sugar. She loves
sweets. She loves candy, chocolate, and those sorts of things. Can go three days without
a bowel motion. Interesting case. What I found with this lady, I’m going to
call her Julie. Julie’s her name, but that’s not her real name. The advice I gave Julie,
basically, was to understand the relationship between the cravings, the desires, the snacking,
and the bad breath. Using mouth rinses and mouthwashes is just a crazy idea. You’re only
masking the problem. It’s only a band-aid. You’re not really going to get a long-term
result with bad breath. Like a lot of people, Julie was only brushing
her teeth once per day, so I told her to go and buy three or four toothbrushes, soft ones.
I’ve been using a nice toothbrush lately with some colloidal silver in this toothbrush.
It’s a really nice one, and I usually buy six toothbrushes at the same time. And every
four to six weeks, I throw the toothbrush out. They are only a couple of dollars. It’s
not really worth hanging onto a crappy old toothbrush. I use a tea tree oil toothpaste.
You can also get a propolis toothpaste with propolis in it. I like to brush at least three
times a day, but I also brush the gums. Now, in Julie’s case, we spent a bit of time
talking about this, so I’m going to outline good oral health when it comes to bad breath.
A lot of people only really brush the teeth. They don’t focus enough time on brushing the
tongue or the gums. Try to understand that your tooth is a bit like a tree. The white
part you can see is the trunk of the tree coming out of the ground. The gum is really
the soil where the tree is going into and the roots. Because the roots of the tree trunk
grow in. In the case of the upper teeth here, we’ve
got the teeth growing into the maxillary sinus. The maxillary sinus is in here, and the floor
of that sinus cavity is where some of the roots of these teeth are basically touching
up close to. With a tree, if you really want to have a healthy tree, it’s got to have a
lot of nutrition and a lot of water, a lot of sunlight, so a tree needs taken care of
until it’s big and strong. But with the teeth, people only seem to spend their time interested
in the white part of the teeth; they don’t look at the gum health too much. When you
get older like me in your 50s, it’s easy for teeth to become quite soft, porous, loose,
wiggly, dead teeth, diseased teeth. And, of course, if this is going to happen, the tooth
is going to fall out and you’re going to get gaps. You’re going to get all sorts of problems
with chewing, with your bite. It’s not a good idea, so you need to look
after your teeth. And by looking after your teeth, you’re looking after the oral health,
the oral cavity. This is going to help, also, digestion a lot downstream. This is quite
a clever thing for you to do. Good teeth mean good chewing capability, breaking food down
to proper small material size, which will mean the stomach has an easier job of breaking
food down. Which also means that you’re going to get good digestion, absorption, and excretion
of the food wastes. But it also means you’re going to break the food down properly to give
the small intestine and the large intestine the right particle size to build beneficial
bacteria up. Something a lot of people don’t think of.
Poor oral health leads to poor digestive health. Poor oral health also leads to bad bacterial
health upstream and downstream. In Julie’s case, I said that within three months, her
breath could be really nice again, just by adopting a good oral cleansing regime. Tea
tree oil toothpaste, gentle brushing with a soft brush, spend a good five to ten minutes
in the morning, gently massaging all the gums, the teeth with the brush, the tongue, inside
all around the teeth. After she’s done that, understand that the diet plays quite a big
role. Making the right kind of food choices has
a very big role in the oral health as well. Eating chocolates and sweets is going to put
a lot of sugar into the oral cavity, and that’s going to allow bacteria like streptococcus
mutans, for example, is a bacteria that really allows proliferation of plaque. With your
fingernail, scrape it along the top of the teeth where they meet the gum and see if you’ve
got any white plaque on there. If you have, you know you’re not looking after your teeth
properly. It’s a little bit like with a tree. I was
taught by a nurseryman when I put a new citrus tree in the ground, don’t put soil too high
or bunch it around this gentle because you’ll get collar rot. And collar rot in a tree is
going to mean that that tree is going to get sick and die. Collar rot in the mouth is really
like having the bacteria around the top of the teeth, where you’re going to get these
bacteria responsible for dental caries or holes. Cleaning that plaque off regularly
is quite a clever idea. Nice sweet smelling breath comes from good bacterial health in
the mouth. Second point I want to raise apart from the
brushing regularly and also when you’ve eaten food, rinse your mouth and spit it out, is
oil pulling. Oil pulling is a very clever thing for you to do in the morning. So when
you get up in the morning, before you do anything else, now, some people say rinse your mouth,
but I think it’s probably better that you don’t rinse your mouth. Is you get one tablespoon
of a good coconut oil and put that in your mouth and swish it all around the teeth, around
the tongue, everywhere for about a good four or five minutes. When you finish that, spit
it out in the bathroom or in the waste paper basket. Just get rid of it. Don’t swallow
it because that oil is going to suck up a lot of bugs, little yeast spores, bits and
pieces of bacteria. They’re going to suck up into that oil, and you’re going to spit
that out and get rid of it out of the body. By doing that oil pulling every single morning
and the good oral cleansing regime and by making the right kind of diet change, eating
fresh vegetables, fresh leafy green vegetables, lean proteins, plenty of fresh water, you’re
going to have sweet smelling breath in no time. Think about those points. I think they
should point you in the right direction when it comes to improving your breath. Because
it’s really nice to be around people that have got good oral hygiene. It makes a big
difference in your life. I hope this video has given you some good
insights into how you can improve your life. Thanks for tuning in.

    Did you do a lab test to discover if she actually had candida?

    Hello Doctor! Every morning I always be busy to clean my mouth including every possible part of my tongue paying attention to clean back root. I am sure there is no problem from gums and teeth rather it is from the tongue. washing my mouth + scraping helps at most for two hours. I have bad breath that I do not want to talk about and it annoyed me. so my question is; is there any antibiotics to remove the bacteria on the tongue? I am grateful to you if you help me because I do not want to ask any body about it.

    Most cases of bad breath are caused by anaerobic bacteria that reside in the gum sulcus and on the dorsal surface of the tongue. Candida is generally not associated with Sulfur compounds that cause bad breath. Brushing the tongue is a good start to support good oral hygiene but using a tongue scraper is significantly more effective. Brushing the gumline is way more important than brushing the teeth. This is proper in your terms.

    Help! I don't know what to do anymore. Do you think I can go on green juice diet for months and will this help? I am already skinny and don't want to lose more weight but I have to get rid of this bad breath! I don't even want to leave the house anymore 🙁

    Acid reflux is destroying my oral health!! Even tho im pedantic with my oral hygiene.

    Have you ever dealt with patients that had a relatively healthy gut/ oral health until they started “bulking” (increasing calories to facilitate new muscle growth)? I really want to gain a little bit of weight and for the past few months I have ramped up my calories (mainly from carbs) to support my body weight and strength gains, however it seems that now I have chronic halitosis. This is the only thing I can attribute it too because recently after going on vacation, the quality of my diet didn’t improve but I was eating a lot less food in general and I noticed the magnitude of my breath significantly went down.
