In brief: Sinus infection?

Sinus infection can cause bad breath.
Also, one's tongue can harbor bad breath-causing germs so make sure that you brush your tongue after you brush your teeth. See your dentist regularly to keep teeth/gums in good condition. Acid reflux, gastritis, lung disease (ex: abscess), and certain foods can also cause bad breath. Definitely worth seeing your doc if it doesn't get better.

Absolutely. GERD is very easily treated with meds these days, many of which are generic and on the $4 list at several pharmacies.

In brief: Full mouth detox

Very common question.
Bad breath is caused by oral bacteria, billions of them. When you brush for 2 min, floss for 2 min, rinse for 1 min, you remove may be 5 % of those bacteria and even this is only temporary. So unless you completely eliminate those odor producing bacteria from our mouth ... Nothing will help. We have developed bios protocol where we can eliminate 99.98% bacteria - completely!
