(NaturalNews) Everyone at some point in their lives has suffered from a horrendous case of morning breath - the type that makes your partner's eyes water or that the kids cower away from. For most of us the cure is simple, a quick brush followed by a gargle of mouth wash and you are set for the day. But for some this simply isn`t enough and the problem of halitosis or bad breath simply will not go away.

There are a number of different things that can cause halitosis, but having a dry mouth is one of the main culprits. Saliva is the mouth's natural defense against bacteria. So when your mouth is dry there is no defense against the odor causing molecules that can cause halitosis. Having an excessively dry mouth can be caused by alcohol, certain medicines, stress and some medical conditions. Other causes of halitosis are dental hygiene or lack of it, nasal infections, foods that are high in protein and smoking, which starves the mouth of oxygen.

It can be a very embarrassing problem that has been known to lead to many social and mental problems. Many people who suffer from halitosis simply won`t talk in group situations and refuse to go out as they are afraid that people will be put off by the smell. This type of self seclusion can cause severe depression and has even been known to lead to weight gain as sufferers take up comfort eating to fill the deep void that has taken over their lives.

Cures For Halitosis

As with most ailments there are literally hundreds of old wives' tales floating around that are said to cure halitosis, but which of them actually work?

Baking soda is involved in a lot of home remedy theories, most of them being completely false. But when it comes to helping cure halitosis there might be something in the baking soda story. Brushing your teeth and tongue with just a little baking soda is thought to make the mouth a little less hospitable and to stop bacteria from growing. You can even buy tooth paste that contains small amounts of baking soda so that there is no need to brush your teeth twice.

Homemade tea tree mouthwashes have become a very popular way of combating halitosis. This is because tea tree is known to be a powerful disinfectant that helps kill bacteria. There are many different ingredients you can add to this such as peppermint to make your breath extra fresh, but the basics are a cup of warm water and a few drops of tea tree oil. Use this to rinse you mouth out at least twice a day and you should notice a massive difference.
