View Full Version : Bad breath

Does being totally raw cause bad breath? It seems like it would clear that up.:confused:

I feel like that too.
I also think my feet smell now.......they didn't before, or maybe they did and my sense of smell is really keen now and they've always been that way! :eek:

It takes time for all the nasties to get out of your system and they come out anyway they can! You could try oil pulling, it's worked wonders for me. :D

I have a super sensitive nose. (Which causes my husband to call me Super Nose! :p ) But I have always had that.
I think that if I eat onions, garlic, or shallots uncooked...they really stay with me. It's also hard for me to digest these foods raw. So, I tend to stay away from them unless they are in a recipe that can be dehydrated.
I also have trouble with the smells coming from the dehydrator when it is cooking. It's almost like I can pick out individual odors instead of the mingled smell. (That may be new:rolleyes: )
Yes, I agree, as things leave our bodies...toxins and what-nots...there can be an odor. Just keep eating raw...perhaps exercising and working up a good sweat to help eliminate quicker...things like that. It's bound to cease as you get clean and clear!

I have been totally raw for almost two years and also lift weights and ride my bike regularly, that's why I was concerned about my breath. My husband mentioned it to me and if HE mentions it, it must be worth mentioning!!!! I've already lost 75 # and have been my same weight now (122 #) for nearly 8 months.
I am now using some liquid chlorophyll as well as taking some Chlorella capsules. Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Yes I have too. In fact I've had some weird teeth issues that have been occurring for the last year. I started swishing wheatgrass(chlorophyll) and using mouthwash and brushing more. Bacteria builds up more in some people. I'm one of those people. stick with the chlorophyll. Bacteria hates oxygen

In addition to the chlorophyll overdose I am planning (haha), I also got some pure peppermint oil and put a few drops in my lil Dixie cup for rinsing after brushing. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a life long war.
My husband is not raw at all and his breath doesn't smell.
