Grandma's Natural Home Remedy
for Bad Breath

Using a natural home remedy for bad breath only makes sense when you consider mouthwash kills the good bacteria along with the bad bacteria. You need the good bacteria to fight bad breath. It all turns into a vicious circle. This is what the advertisements don't tell you when they are selling their bacteria fighting mouthwash. It's no wonder the mouthwash business has turned into a multi-million dollar business.

There are certain fruits and vegetables that have an abundance of enzymes and it's important to include these fruits and vegetable in our diet, especially when we eat them in their natural form, raw. By including these fresh fruits and vegetables you will prevent using up the natural body enzymes you were born with. For instance, a salad should be eaten first before your main course, simply because you will be giving your body enzymes to help digest the protein.

Once all our natural enzymes are used up, we die! That's something to think about.

Think about preserving your natural enzymes before you start eating your meals each day. Especially when eating out and enjoying all those fast foods.
