Bad Breath-

Most bad breath is caused by bacteria in the mouth. Proper brushing and flossing will help decrease these bacteria. About 30% of bad breath is caused by gum disease (see dental problems). A few cases, particularly persistant bad breath that doesn't respond to good oral hygiene, may be caused by cirrhosis of the liver, diabetes, kidney failure and cancer in the mouth, throat or lungs. If simple measures donít relieve the bad breath, see your health care provider.

Herbal treatment- Chew a few seeds of any of the following: cardamom, anise, coriander, or dill. Parsley also works well or either spearmint or peppermint.
