Bad Breath

Smelly breath also referred to as halitosis.


In speaking of constipation and the need for three bowel movements a day: The wiser way is to work on the cause by unplugging and cleaning out the sewer line so there will be no more backing up of sewage. Within the human body, we find a sewage line that is backed up (constipation) and the horrible odor of halitosis comes out the front door (the mouth) as it is opened. If someone said, "Your breath is horrible," the average person works on the effect, and in order to cover up the bad breath, pops in a mint or runs for the mouth wash. If someone said--"Whew-you need a bath, the smell from your body is awful," you work on the effect again and use underarm deodorant, perfumes, colognes, etc., and never think of cleaning up the cause, and thus having a permanently sweet smelling body and breath.
