(NaturalNews) You guessed it; pilau is the Hawaiian word for smelly, rotten, stinky, and anything offensive. In English, one would say, "You really have bad breath". In pidgin, one would say, "Brah, yr bret' stay pilau". Two different cultures. Same message.

Every time I read something about bad breath, it's kind of like a doctor prescribing a drug to treat a symptom. For some weird, unexplainable reason, no one ever deals with treating the cause. So, taking a walk on the wild side, here goes.

Pilau breath is always a sign of some internal disorder and should never be treated only with breath mints or mouth washes. First and foremost, the teeth and gums need to be looked at. A visit to a dental hygienist or a dentist will reveal if tooth or gum disease is the cause.

If the mouth is healthy, all other local problems can be eliminated. This includes sinusitis, nasal allergies, postnasal drip, tonsillitis, and lung problems. With those not playing a part in the problem, the most probable cause of the problem is a digestive imbalance, usually due to improper diet.

The most common problem involves poor elimination and constipation.

As the stuff stays inside for a longer than usual period of time, toxins are reabsorbed causing coating of the tongue and ultimately, pilau breath.

Another factor is digestive enzyme deficiency, where lack of hydrochloric acid or other digestive enzymes can be the cause. At one point these enzymes were normal. But over time and dietary abuse, the enzymes became depleted.

When meals are too large or too frequent, this interferes with the process. It causes large portions of partially digested foods to get to the small intestine, setting up fermentation resulting in both gas and bad breath. Pilau to da max!

Then, improper food combinations create conditions impossible for proper digestion. Look at a typical breakfast - citrus fruits and bread. Bad, bad, bad. Then mixing fruits and vegetables or melons with just about anything else causes havoc in the body.

Fiber deficiency and an excess consumption of refined carbohydrates along with too much dairy or flesh equates to the worst-case scenario as far as breath is concerned. Not only is this diet highly mucus-forming, but it favors tooth and gum disease, digestive weakness, constipation, and much more grief, both related and unrelated to bad breath.

Many times, people have intolerances to certain foods that they have trouble digesting. It's a good idea to get tested by a naturopath or a doctor specializing in allergies to find out what's bad for you to eat.

Many times, stress and anxiety are the main cause of bad breath because prolonged stress will make normal digestion impossible by affecting both the nervous and endocrine systems. And don't forget that heavy metal poisoning can cause bad breath and selenium can give a garlic-like odor to the breath.

So, if the problem is dental, nothing will alleviate the situation until the cause is treated.

If diet is the problem, proper digestion and elimination can be reestablished by a short three-day apple mono diet or a ten-day brown rice mono diet. Yes, mono means only eating one thing.

Once the mono diet is finished it should be followed by a high-fiber diet with an abundance of raw vegetables and fruit, not eaten at the same time.

Meals should be smaller than normal and eaten dry, without drinks or soups.

Do not drink liquids within the half hour before the meal and not until an hour to an hour a half after the meal. Doing this will prevent the digestive juices from becoming diluted and therefore less efficient.

Although water is normally easily acidified by the stomach acid, a hydrochloric acid-deficient individual needs all the acid he or she needs for digestion.

Milk is particularly detrimental if taken with meals because it requires a great amount of acid to be acidified, leaving little or none left for the meal itself. This is why kosher laws do not allow dairy products to be consumed with meat at the same meals. Hydrochloric acid is essential for proper protein digestion.

Drinking water between meals is very important to help cleanse the body and cases of bad breath are improved by drinking six to eight glasses of water a day.

Doing the mono diet is not just a one-time thing. Many times it needs to be repeated several times to get complete results.

Aloha!

About the author:
I have been doing a weekly radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called "Health Talk". In 2007 I was "forced" to get a Masters degree in Nutrition because of all the doctors that would call in asking for my credentials. They do not call in anymore. Going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com enables you, among other things, to listen to the shows. I am an activist. In addition to espousing an organic vegan diet for optimum health, I am strongly opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation and everything else that the pimps (Big Pharma, Monsanto and the large food companies) and the hookers (the doctors, the government agencies, the public health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the tricks.
After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child I developed asthma. After taking the organic sulfur crystals (they are harvested from the pine trees in Louisiana) in November of 2008 for 10 days my asthma reversed and has not come back over 4 years later, 18 cases, so far, of autism have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, osteoarthritis, joint pain, astigmatism, gum disease, increased sexual activity, heavy metal and radiation elimination, parasite elimination, free radicals elimination, faster athletic recovery time, increased blood circulation, reduced inflammation, resistance to getting the flu, reduction of wrinkles, allergy reduction, reduced PMS and monthly period pain, nausea, migraines and so much more. And it's only possible because of the oxygen it releases that floods the cells of the body. The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids. You can find out more about this incredible nutrient also on my website - www.healthtalkhawaii.com -.
