Halitosis (bad breath) is an embarrassing condition, and it affects over 80 million people globally. It is characterized by a white coating on the tongue and the production of thick saliva among other issues. Discussed below are the causes and natural treatments for halitosis.
To start with, a buildup of bad bacteria in the mouth is the major cause. When one does not properly brush and floss their teeth after a meal, some food particles remain in the mouth. With time, the particles decompose, and they cause bad odors. The decomposed foods also offer a good environment for bacteria to thrive, thus worsening the situation. The natural cure for this type of bad breath is maintaining proper dental hygiene. Brushing well at least twice a day with a soft brush and flossing regularly can easily solve the problem. Tongue cleaning also helps when done in a gentle manner from the back towards the front of the tongue.
