Howdy, I’m Andy, the one who is currently running this site. I’m also one who deals with my own personal halitosis occasionally.
It all started several years ago, when I was trying different sleeping techniques and other stuff. It was probably a day that I would have considered normal, when all of a sudden, my life changed with those three terrifying words. “Your breath stinks.”
At first, I just chose to ignore it, thinking that if it came easily, it would leave easily. That unfortunately didn’t work. After a while, I started looking up my problem, and found that it’s not as easy to diagnose as I thought.
I looked at all the common ways to get rid of the smell. Trying to mask it, trying to wash my mouth with different solutions, having better oral hygiene, all of which came too naught. I still had bad breath.
Some things seemed to work, and some things didn’t. There were days when I was confident that my breath was cured, and then there were days when I just knew that it seemed like some just wasn’t quite right.
So I just keep trying new and different things.
I tried apples, to see if their natural odorizers would help mask the smell (which it did sort of). I attempted to make my own mouthwash with hydrogen peroxide, and apple cider vinegar, and had a wonderfully, well, gross taste in my mouth for a few days.
I tried many natural remedies. Baking soda, gargling salt water, herbal tea, chewing parsley. Some things sort of worked, and some didn’t really do much of anything.
As I kept on researching things online, I would find people spending thousands of dollars trying to find the reason for their bad breath, and coming away with nothing. Acid reflux? Tonsil stones? Post nasal drip? Intestinal issues?
Looking over all the different testimonials of various people, I came to the realization that each person is different, and many deal with different issues that cause their bad breath. Because of this reason, I started this site, to try to better educate others about halitosis and bad breath.
My mission for this site
My mission for this site it to try to bring together a wide range of knowledge about oral health, and the issues they can produce – specifically bad breath.
That’s why I’ve got articles on tonsil stones, acid reflux, aspartame, mouthwash products, and numerous other reason why and where you bad breath is coming from.
I don’t claim to have all the answers. Nor do I claim that I can ‘cure’ people. But I do my very best to help as many people as possible – even you!
If you’ve been fighting halitosis for a while, and need help, don’t hesitate to drop me note here. Ask me to write about a specific issue, a certain product, or just ask me to help you help find where your bad breath is coming from. I don’t mind. I’ll help as many as I can.
Also, I know many dealing with bad breath can sometimes become depressed and anti-social. I know that for a fact, because I’ve felt it in my life sometimes. If that’s you, and you just need to talk with someone, anyone, just to get rid of the weight of what your carrying, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email (email provide below).
I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to help everyone, but whenever someone leaves me a question, or emails me, I try to put those issues on the top of my priority.
If you have any questions or whatnot, let me know, and I’ll help you out,
