Bad Breath often Accompanies a Cold
Posted: June 27, 2011When the weather is funky like it has been, it s not uncommon to get a cold or flu. As unpleasant as a cold already is, did you know that bad breath can also be the result of a cold?
The connection of feeling under the weather with a nasal cold and bad breath is one that has been known for some time now. For example, an 1889 in issue of The Clinical Reporter discusses catarrh which is now an unused term for the thick mucus that often accompanies a cold. The Clinical Reporter was a homeopathic medicine and surgery journal.
The report suggested using a mix of water, salt and peroxide to combat catarrh- the inflamed mucus membranes. The salt in the solution will clear up the mucus, while the spray of peroxide will remove all odor and bad breath in most cases. While the author had good intentions, we definitely don t suggest you ingest peroxide, but he was on the right track. Instead, may we suggest visiting your doctor to see what they recommend? If you are self-conscious about the smell from the mucus in your sinuses, definitely try our TheraBreath PLUS Nasal-Sinus Drops. It is a powerful formula that cleanses the throat and tonsil and can be used as often as you d like.
If you want to go one step further, we would suggest trying either our Tonsil Stones Starter Kit or our Tonsil Stones Deluxe Kit. The Starter Kit has all of our powerful, natural formulas that will help clean up the mucus in your throat and tonsils. The Deluxe Kit not only has the nasal drops and throat spray but also comes with our Toothpaste and Oral Rinse it truly has everything you need to keep the foul odor in your throat and sinuses at bay.
