Combat bad breath with celery

Bad breath, also known as halitosis.

The bad breath, many times, is a normal condition, that can easily be removed with proper dental hygiene.

An empty stomach from skipping meals can cause foul breath as acids in the stomach build up.

There are also certain foods well known to cause bad breath, such as onions and garlic.

Rather than chewing away at gum, celery, carrots and apple have long been deemed to be a cure all for bad breath.

The celery is a good option to fight bad breath due to its high fiber content.

You can chew celery, as it promotes the production of saliva to keep your mouth moist and clean.

It also helps to remove bacteria from the tongue and plays a similar role to a natural tooth thread.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
