Are you someone who experiences morning breath? What about afternoon breath or evening breath
or what if you live with somebody and you need to make sure that they learn some secrets
to clearing up their bad breath or halitosis issues? Well, I’ve got a great program in store for
you. Welcome to Ancient Medicine Today. I’m your host, Jordin Rubin. And we’re brought to you by draxe.com, your
source for innovative health information to teach you how to use food as medicine. You know, bad breath may seem like a cosmetic
issue. We see commercials for various mouthwashes
and gums. But the bottom line is bad breath or halitosis
may be a sign of internal health issues. Today on Ancient Medicine, we’re going to
talk to you about nine secret bad breath fighters and an amazing homemade toothpaste recipe
which can do much more for you than just freshen your breath. Bottom line, folks, if you have bad breath
or if you have a family member, a child, a husband, a wife that does, there’s much more
going on. We want to help you not only clear that up,
but transform your entire oral health with these secret ingredients that will help fight
bad breath. Let’s get started. Number one, cardamom. We say all the time that spices are amazing
and we don’t use enough of them. Cardamom is a powerful, potent antiseptic
and it even helps destroy oral pathogenic bacteria. That’s bad bacteria. If you want a quick and easy way to fight
the bacteria that causes bad breath, those germs in your mouth, chew cardamom seeds. It is absolutely amazing. Again, folks, I believe in America we don’t
get enough spice in our diet. So, spice things up to transform your health. Cardamom is not only great for your oral health,
but when you use food as medicine, there are amazing side benefits. Number two, and this is one of my favorite
secrets to oral health, not just bad breath but whitening your teeth, etc., is oil pulling. So, what you do is you take approximately
a teaspoon or even a tablespoon of coconut oil. Now, I know we all love virgin or extra virgin
coconut oil, but you can even use refined coconut oil. The Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling started
with sesame oil. You put oil in your mouth and you wish it,
make sure it gets between your teeth, your gums. It does powerful things for your body. It fights tooth decay and it helps freshen
your breath, even whiten your teeth. And a healthy mouth equals a healthy body. It pulls toxins out of the body. I recommend you do oil pulling. Start with five minutes a day and eventually
get to 15 or 20. What you want to make sure you do is if you
do start with a tablespoon of coconut oil, it will expand as your saliva is added to
it. So, that will determine how long you can pull
for because you might be like this after five minutes. Anyway, oil pulling is something that I do
at least once a day. You can do it while reading. For me, it’s right after flossing. I brush–by the way, we’re going to give you
a great homemade toothpaste recipe–I brush, I floss, then I oil pull. Sometimes I add essentially oils to it as
well. The Ayurvedic medicinal way to get toxins
out of your mouth, fight tooth decay is oil pulling with coconut oil. Peppermint oil is one of the best fighters
of bad breath and bacteria in the mouth. You can take peppermint oil and just drop
it under your tongue. Now, it is very strong, so one or two drops
is a lot. Swish it around or you can add it to another
oil, use it as a mouthwash, perhaps in oil pulling. I like to add peppermint oil to store bought
toothpaste, or as you’ll learn, it can be a great ingredient. It’s a potent antimicrobial. One drop does a tremendous amount for your
mouth and it’s also great for the gut. So, if you swallow the peppermint oil, you’re
going to get benefits for digestion as peppermint can relieve gas, bloating and cramps. Peppermint oil is so great, really cooling
to the body. It’s also great for tooth pain. So, that’s the third bad breath fighter and
it’s great for overall health. Folks, I’m Jordan Rubin here for Ancient Medicine
Today, brought to you by draxe.com, your leading source for health and wellness information
teaching you that food is medicine. We’re here each and every weekday Monday through
Thursday 10:30 a.m. Central time plus make sure to subscribe to
this channel for pop-ins that we do anytime, anyplace. And folks, remember, if you love this information,
punch that love button and make sure to click that share button because these bad breath
fighters not only are proven and effective for your mouth, but the entire body. Folks, this is a big one, water. A lot of times your bad breath is simply caused
by dehydration. When you hydrate, you help your body dilute
the toxins and even the microbes that cause bad breath. Dehydration equals bad breath. Make sure to consume purified or filtered
water. This is a great one, parsley. Have you ever wondered why when you eat a
restaurant they’ll garnish the meal with parsley? They often are using sort of an ancient trick
to help people freshen their breath. Parsley was a poor man’s breath mint. Well, I would say for a rich man’s health. You can chew on parsley and the chlorophyll
will actually destroy bad bacteria and freshen your breath. So, parsley when you chew it or even consume
some juice, you can spit it out but also you can eat it. The chlorophyll in parsley helps kill the
bacteria responsible for bad breath. And parsley is also good to detoxify the body
and strengthen the liver. Probiotic rich foods. Picture there is natto, which is an Asian
fermented soy that uses the probiotic Bacillus subtilis. Bad breath starts in the gut. Natto, which can be used as a condiment, helps
to destroy fungal overgrowth, bacterial overgrowth and it is powerful for digestion and the side
benefit, it freshens your breath. This doesn’t happen overnight. It’s not going to be the same as putting peppermint
oil in your mouth, but it will build your gut flora, which will helps fight bad breath. So, consume probiotic-rich foods–sauerkraut,
miso, natto, cultured dairy products if you consume dairy, kombucha, kvass, apple cider
vinegar all good to fight the germs that cause bad breath. Now, here are three quick supplements that
I recommend to purify the body and fight bad breath. Number one, probiotics. Look for probiotics that contain soil-based
organizations. I like a broad spectrum probiotic that contains
Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus clausii, Saccharomyces boulardii and Lactobacillus
plantarum in a base of fermented foods. Probiotics boost your gut. Bad breath starts in the gut. Probiotic consumption over time can help reduce
the toxins that are in your mouth that can be detected, believe it or not, in a breath
test. So, consume probiotics. I recommend first thing in the morning on
an empty stomach consuming a balanced probiotic. Milk thistle purifies the liver. It is by far the number one liver supporting
herb. Milk thistle seed is amazing for the liver. It has a compound known as silymarin, which
helps to strengthen and purify the liver. It’s got a slightly bitter nature to it, which
means that it’s really good for the liver. Consuming milk thistle, making it in an herbal
infusion like a tea or in supplement form is really, really great for your liver and
it’s great for bad breath. Also, we talked about chlorophyll earlier
with parsley, consuming a green superfood powder or a green juice powder every day in
your smoothie, in carrot juice or other juices or just in water is a great way to get chlorophyll
into your system and chlorophyll is a potent fighter of bad bacteria, purifier of the body
and helps to freshen your breath. Folks, I’ve got to tell you that these nine
secret bad breath fighters can do so much more than just freshen your breath and make
your mouth healthy. It can transform the health of your entire
body, your gut, your liver, your skin. You’re going to get so many side benefits
because that’s what happens when you use food as medicine. Now, for those of you who are interested,
here is a DIY toothpaste. You do not have to buy toothpaste at the store. Frankly, most of them are not super-healthy. You start with coconut oil. Coconut oil is great to purify the mouth. Baking soda helps create the right environment
in the mouth to destroy some of the acid loving bacteria that can cause tooth decay. Xylitol makes your toothpaste a little bit
sweet, but it also fights cavities. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol. It’s often used as a sweetener and I’m not
a huge fan of that, but in oral health it is great to prevent the adherence of certain
bacteria. And then we use some heating, warming oils,
cinnamon and clove are some of our favorite. Make sure to use certified organic essential
oil. Then we love peppermint oil. So, you’ve got heating and you’ve got cooling. Optionally you can use trace minerals. You can find these in drops, or you can use
a trace mineral powder, particularly those that are rich in fulvic and humic acid. It might make your toothpaste a little dark,
but it’s really good, believe it or not, for freshening your breath, whitening your teeth
and this is a toothpaste, folks, that it is okay to swallow. Don’t you hate when you look at commercial
toothpaste and it says if you accidentally swallow, call the poison control center immediately? We’re giving this to our kids. What is up with that? This DIY homemade toothpaste is awesome. You can store it in a little jar. You do not need to refrigerate it, but you
could if you choose. It is a really great toothpaste or tooth gel
that I recommend for the entire family. I think that you will love it. So, these great ingredients are available
at health food stores, or you can order them online. So, let’s give a recap. I’m Jordan Rubin here for Ancient Medicine

breath fighters. We have cardamom, chew on the seeds. It kills bacteria. Coconut oil, a teaspoon to a tablespoon in
oil pulling, swish it around your mouth for 5, 15 or even 20 minutes, ancient Ayurvedic
secret. Peppermint essentially oil, one drop on your
toothpaste or in water or just one drop on your tongue if you can handle it. Drink more water–staying hydrated helps to
prevent bad breath. Parsley is great to consume, just chew on
it. The chlorophyll naturally fights bacteria
and freshens breath. Eat probiotic rich foods–miso, natto, fermented
beverages, yogurt and kefir are great because they also contain calcium to build strong
and healthy teeth. And when it comes to supplements, the big
three are probiotics. You want to look for a broad spectrum probiotic

  6. I'm oil pulling as I type this… it's freakin' tongue workout! I definitely like the addition of peppermint & clove essential oils, makes it taste a bit better. As always, thanks for the great tips!

  11. Great tips, thank you for the good advice.

    Here is another Ancient Medicine for bad breath which I use – Miswak, a teeth cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree. A traditional and natural alternative to the modern toothbrush, it has a long, well-documented history and is reputed for its medicinal benefits.[1] It is reputed to have been used over 7000 years ago.[2] The miswak's properties have been described thus: "Apart from their antibacterial activity which may help control the formation and activity of dental plaque, they can be used effectively as a natural toothbrush for teeth cleaning. Such sticks are effective, inexpensive, common, available, and contain many medical properties".

  12. with probiotics, how do u know what is good and when to take it? I've heard alot about probiotics never making it through the stomach to get that bad bacteria. they r expensive and that would be a waste of money and a waste for ur body not getting it while ur thinking you are.

  13. Also water your feet (from knee to toe) in the morning before washing face, and water your feet (from knee to toe) before going to bed. Good for eyes and fight bad breath.

  15. All the essential oils I found in Amazon say "for external use only", are these ok to use in making this toothpaste?

  16. can you pull using less than 1 Tbsp
    or maybe in shorter intervals like 2Xs for 10 mins so when it expands it's not so bothersome?

  17. Oh My GOODNESSSSSSSSS, I went out the very next day after watching this video and spent 60 plus dollars on the ingredients for the homemade toothpaste. this is sooooo worth it. The ingredients will last about a year, with the exception of the xylitol, so that makes this an awesome investment. I also currently make my own deodorant and it truly works. Thank you guys soooooo much for this informative video. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. can u use spearmint or wintergreen instead of peppermint or at least less peppermint and one of these to replace most of the peppermint oil? i hate hate the taste of peppermint!

  19. I had constant bad breath , and after my tonsils were removed, it became normal, as to any person. Nobody talks about the tonsils. I'm a very clean person, and I tried everything, but only the tonsils removing worked.
    Please spread the word about bad breath, and tonsils.

  20. isn't there a diy toothpaste with mineral powders. but why not liquids too? not sure about this ust wondering if i will absorb this through my teeth? ( i am having trouble absorbing calcium thus i said that. thanks

  21. but does it matter how you drink chlorophyl? does it have to be in water mostly? does it reduce its' power depending on where you mix it with?

  28. I just wanna say that i really love you both ( Dr. Axe & Mr. Ruben ). I think you both are genuine and humble and i appreciate that passion you have of helping others. I would love to meet you someday!

  29. I am so relieved that I have finally discovered something that is effective! And it didn`t only work for me. For all the individuals who suffer from this, since it can really wreck a person’s life. I was able to enhance my breath in just a few hours right after I began using this bad breath treatment “Kanzοzο Zato” (Google it). My spouse is satisfied to kiss me again! .

  30. I had been able to eliminate my bad breath when I followed bad breath solution “Kanzοzο Zato” (Google it). I now have so much more self-confidence since I can speak to individuals one on one without having to worry about what kind of smell is coming out of my mouth! .

  31. I began this bad breath remedy “Kanzοzο Zato” (Google it) only Two days ago however the difference has been remarkable. There is a girl I have wanted to ask out on a date for months but I was so paranoid about my breath I could not risk the rejection. I`ve become a little more confident than ever before. Watch this space! .

  32. My breath was very humiliating. It`s horrible which I forced myself to just stay home After trying my dentist informed me, it just worked for a couple of hours. Now I was able to achieve a more fresh as well as clean breath. My life back is finally back to normal due to this bad breath solution “Kanzοzο Zato” (Google it). .

  33. Check out probiotics specifically for oral health. Streptococcus salivarius K12. Look it up. I've had the longest Health regimen for the past 10 years I've been battling and that shouldn't even be the tactic, let the good bugs do the battling for you. I have done all this stuff and more. I've developed my own mouthwash my own toothpaste and I spend about 30 to 40 minutes on my teeth every day and night for the past 10 years with only variable Improvement. Those of us with autoimmune disorders have little to no defense system. I'm serious, check out probiotic specifically for oral health the K-12 strain.

  34. I think peppermint does freshen the breath. However, I have acid reflux and peppermint makes my stomache growl and make annoying noises that can be embarrassing. Are there any sort of toothpaste or mouth wash that doesn't have mint in it that will help to freshen breath?
