How To Tackle Mouth Odour Without Drugs




One of the common conditions found worldwide affecting individuals is halitosis, commonly called bad breath. It is a terrible social nuisance. The sad part is that colleagues, friends and relations are usually embarrassed to tell the person concerned that he/she has such a problem. They are just not able to go that far, thinking that such comments can hurt the person. In such a situation they will hope that one day, the individual will find out, one way or the other. When you summon up courage to tell them, they are usually not aware of the issue.

This condition has been linked to problems with the teeth, gums or throat. However, halitosis has been strongly associated with the body’s ability to eliminate waste. Health experts have identified that improper and poorly functioning digestive system can cause bad mouth odour, which often results from accumulation of toxins in the kidneys or liver.

Chemical toxins that have built up within the body slow down the immune system and alter the natural course of elimination. Detoxification is the core treatment for halitosis, being a great way to get your breath back on track and have a healthy body.

For the purpose of clarity, the fact, as revealed through Modern Mayr medicine, is that when we eat food without proper chewing, for example, such African foods like pounded yam, eba or rice, they are swallowed without proper chewing as if when they get to the stomach there will be further grinding of the food.

The unfortunate thing is that there are no teeth in the stomach. Consequently, there will be no proper digestion of the food content. The stomach, of course, must empty its content into the small intestine within three or four hours. As a result of this, the semi solid swallow is now pushed into the small intestine. Since the small intestine canal is very narrow, the product will find it difficult to pass through with ease. In effect, this content can remain in the intestinal passage for up to three or 20 days; unlike the 18-24 hours if the person has good eating habits. The result of such slow movement of undigested food substance is fermentation and decay, described by Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr as the commonest cause of intestinal auto intoxification that will produce bad gas, flatulence and toxins.


Halitosis is the result of such gas being emitted through the mouth cavity, while body odour is the manifestations of such toxins in the skin. These toxins are the fermentation product of lactose, including alcohol such as methanol, butanol and propanol. The fermentation products of proteins are biogenic amines such as histamine, cadaverin, and skatol.

The long term consequences of continuous accumulation of these products are many, ranging from initial bad breath to pot belly, followed by hypertension, diabetes, ugliness, cancer, premature ageing and death.

Good medical detoxification spas and medical detox clinics are usually equipped with different detoxification therapies that cleanse the body. While bad breath is not a desirable problem to have, it is not the only thing that will benefit from detoxification of the body. When toxins are eliminated from the body, the overall health improves greatly.

Another condition that affects individuals is body odour, which is widely associated with sweating. However, body odour is not caused by sweating and sweat is actually odourless. Sweat only brings out what is already inside the body. Therefore, if there are a lot of toxins in the body, bad odour will be emitted through the surface of the skin.

The body has two different types of sweat gland that help in eliminating toxins through the skin, which are the exocrine and apocrine glands. Toxins enter our body by the food we eat or the environment; therefore, we need to prevent and eliminate toxins in the body.


Elimination of certain types of food like alcohol, coffee, cigarette, dairy products and red meat has helped in preventing body odour. Studies have revealed that sweat produced by the apocrine gland is high in protein. This calls for detoxification and lifestyle modification.

Detoxification has been proved to be the core treatment for body odour and halitosis; therefore, we recommend expertise management and detox therapies which involve health education, nutrition education, hydrotherapy, foot detox, rehydration, colon irrigation, sauna, steam bath for healthy breath and skin.

In addition to the above therapy, good oral and personal hygiene is also beneficial in prevention of halitosis and body odour.
