Have you ever heard of "oil-pulling?" It might seem a little "out there" to some, but it could be just what you're needing ... 

Every once in a while, an interesting option comes along in order to cure. us naturally. Some of us tend to jump on these bandwagons rather quickly and although they may help to a certain extent, many of them are nothing more than a quick fix which tends to go away because there are more things wrong on the inside of us than we realize. Of course, there are also some natural cures that have helped many people to come through amazing problems. Some of these may also help us to overcome some rather simple problems, such as bad breath. 

If you are dealing with bad breath, you probably have already taken offense with the fact that I have said it is a simple problem. For those of us that have a difficult time with halitosis, it is anything but simple to cure. Believe me, I dealt with halitosis for many years and I tried almost everything possible in order to be able to overcome the problem. At one time, I even thought that I was seriously ill because at times, that will actually cause the halitosis that we are experiencing. Fortunately, for me, it was a matter of detoxing and that may also be what is causing the problem as well. 

The body is full of toxins and it is constantly trying to rid itself of these toxins in some way or another. Many times, it will do this through the blood using the natural process that follows. As the blood which is full of toxins travels through our body, it eventually reaches the lungs where it is replenished with oxygen to take to the rest of our body again. At this time, it usually dumps its load of toxins which is supposed to be carried out of the lungs and through the mouth to the outside world. This is one of the reasons why many of us have halitosis. 

 In order to overcome the problem and even to detox yourself to a large extent, you might try a process that is known as oil pulling. Most people do this with sunflower oil but it is possible for you to use any type of raw, organic oil. Simply squish the oil around in your mouth for about 15 minutes and then spit it into the sink. Many of the toxins that have been causing your halitosis will leave your body with the oil and you may just find that it cures your problem instantly.
