Bad breath can usually be cured. Bad breath can be caused by food rotting in the mouth, stomach acid regurgitating up to the mouth and infections releasing chemicals that smell. Your doctor should look for white dots on your tonsils, that are often pieces of food that your saliva has turned white. You can remove them by gargling after every meal or by rubbing a Q tip against your tonsils.
Q: I am so glad to have found D-mannose and xylitol through the Tahoma Clinic Dispensary. I have started using xylitol for all of my baking and sweetening needs.
