The medical term for Bad Breath is Halitosis. Bad Breath refers to foul odor of varying kinds exhaled from the mouth. The various causes behind Bad Breath are poor dental hygiene, tobacco chewing, smoking, taking certain foodstuff (garlic, radish, onion, spices),dry mouth, decayed/caries teeth, ulcers in mouth, gum infection (Gingivitis, Pyorrhoea Alveolaris), sinus infection, throat infections, post-nasal drip, fever, and in a few cases, during periods in women.

Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Bad Breath

Homeopathy is of great help for the treatment of bad breath. The natural remedies for bad breath, which are completely safe with zero side effects, can help to get rid of Bad Breath very efficiently. Methods like mouthwash, mint gum are very temporary solutions. With homeopathy, the root cause is identified and then treated effectively.

1. Merc Sol: For Bad Breath with Moist Mouth

If Bad Breath is accompanied by a moist mouth and increased saliva, Merc Sol is the top remedy. All the persons needing this natural medicine emit a highly offensive odor from the mouth with a constantly moist mouth due to increased saliva. The salivary glands are overactive and produce saliva in high amounts. The saliva is also offensive. The odor of breath is so severe that it fills the whole room. Along with excessive saliva, the thirst for water also increases. Merc Sol is also helpful in the treatment of Bad Breath arising out of dental conditions like tooth decay and gum infection with spongy, bleeding, discharging gums. Merc Sol is a highly preferable medicine for Bad Breath with ulcers in the mouth as well. A sweet metallic taste may be present along with Bad Breath in all the conditions mentioned above.

2. Pulsatilla: For Bad Breath with Dry Mouth

For Bad Breath with a dry mouth, Pulsatilla is the best natural remedy. Pulsatilla works very well in cases of Bad Breath with a dry mouth. Also, the patient has no desire to drink water in spite of a dry mouth, which adds to the offensiveness of the odor. The tongue seems to be covered with thick mucus. The taste of mouth is also varied, ranging from salty, bitter and foul or in a few cases, no taste at all.

3. Kreosote: Bad Breath from decayed teeth or Cavities

Kreosote proves to be the best treatment for Bad Breath due to decayed teeth. Kreosote is of great help in removing Bad Breath which is a result of caries teeth. Some persons may also complain of bleeding from gums along with decayed teeth. Bitter taste in mouth is frequently noticed.

4. Hepar Sulph and Carbo Veg: For Bad Breath with Gum Infection

The main gum infections that cause a bad mouth odor are Gingivitis (inflamed gums) and Pyorrhoea Alveolaris (discharge of pus and/or blood from gums). Both Hepar Sulph and Carbo Veg show their worth in treating gum infections. Hepar Sulph can be taken in all cases were only pus is discharged from the gums with offensive breath. Hepar Sulph helps treat the root cause and aids in the absorption of the pus from gums, thereby reducing the intensity of Bad Breath. Carbo Veg is the best remedy to treat foul breath associated with discharge of both pus and blood from gums. If pus and blood from gums with Bad Breath are accompanied by salivation, then Merc Sol is the best remedy.

5. Carbolic Acid: For Bad Breath with Constipation

The accompanying symptoms to use Carbolic Acid include a bloated abdomen due to constipation. The abdomen is painful due to excessive wind in it. The person may also complain of decreased or extreme loss of appetite. Nausea and bad taste in mouth are the added symptoms.

Other Medicines for Halitosis

1. Remedies for Bad Breath due to Throat Complaints

Belladona and Hepar Sulph are the best remedies for patients with Bad Breath due to throat complaints. Belladona is highly recommended in the very acute stages of throat infection with Bad Breath. Here, the throat, including tonsils, is markedly inflamed with a high fever. Hepar Sulph is the ideal natural remedy when Bad Breath arises in throat complaints where pus collection appears on tonsils, letting out a bad smell.

2. Remedies for Bad Breath in the Morning

For prescribing Nux Vomica, the points considered are gastric complaints, including acidity and constipation; sensitivity to cold air and a desire for stimulants, including coffee, alcohol, spices, along with Bad Breath. In contrast to Nux Vomica, Pulsatilla suits hot-blooded patients with a desire for cool open air. They have a dry mouth with Bad Breath and the thirst for water is absent.

3. Remedies for Bad Breath after Eating

Sulphur mainly suits a patient who is hot-blooded with heated sensations in body with Bad Breath. A bitter taste in mouth may be present along with Bad Breath. Nux Vomica is suitable for persons with Bad Breath who feel cold and have intolerance to cold air. They usually suffer from longstanding gastric troubles like acidity and constipation along with Bad Breath.

4. Remedies for Specific Odor of Bad Breath

The persons with Bad Breath at times specify the exact odor of breath. This specific character should always be given importance because it is the individual symptom and secondly, it narrows down the list of natural medicines out of which the best remedy can be given to do away with Bad Breath. Although the character of odour is given utmost importance,it is not the sole symptom on the basis of which the medicine is prescribed. Bad Breath can be sour, garlic-like, onion-like, urine-like or stool-like or of any other odour. The sour odour from mouth can be treated with natural medicines Nux Vomica and Rheum. For garlic-like odour, the remedy is Arsenic Album. To deal with onion-like odour, the best natural remedies are Asafoetida and Lycopodium. The persons needing Asafoetida or Lycopodium are chronic sufferers of wind or gas in the abdomen. The medicines that cover urine-like odour are Nitric Acid, Benzoic Acid and Graphites. For stool-like odour, the best natural remedies are Belladona and Baptisia.

    My breath is horrible. The smell comes through
    my mouth and nose. The smell is horrible. Gum used to work for me. It is barely masking the smell now. One can smell my breath standing in front of me. I am so hurt and disappointed. I think

    my stomach is ok. I am so depressed. I have tried so many products . None of them worked .Can you help me?
