Bad Breath (Halitosis) Truths

In this article you will learn about:

  • Bad Breath (Halitosis) Causes
  • Bad Breath (Halitosis) “Bugs”
  • Conditions which make Bad Breath (Halitosis) worse
  • Bad Breath (Halitosis) Solutions

Bad breath (Halitosis) is caused by Anaerobic Sulfur Producing Bacteria which normally live WITHIN the surface of the tongue and in the throat.

These bacteria are supposed to be there, because they assist humans in digestion by breaking down proteins found in specific foods, mucous or phlegm, blood, and in diseased or “broken-down” oral tissue.

When these “beneficial” bacteria come into contact with these compounds, the odorous and “lousy-tasting” sulfur compounds are released from the back of the tongue and throat, as Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercaptan, and other odorous and bad tasting compounds.

Bad Breath (Halitosis) “Bugs”

Let me explain a very important fact about these “bugs”. They are not “bad guys” – they are not infectious. Everyone in the world has the same group of bacteria in their mouth and everyone needs these bacteria because they assist in the digestion process. You cannot “catch” bad breath (halitosis) from someone else – even by kissing. Since they are part of our normal oral flora, you cannot permanently remove them from your mouth – not by tongue scraping, not by antibiotics, and not by rinses which claim to “lift the bacteria off your tongue”. The only scientifically proven and clinically effective method of halting Halitosis is by attacking the bacteria’s ability to produce volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) and by converting the VSC into non-odorous and non-tasting organic salts.

Bad Breath (Halitosis) Conditions Which Make Matters Worse

Dry Mouth

Although some cases of dry mouth are naturally occurring, most cases are caused by one of these factors:

1. Prescription Medications (ususally prescribed for high blood pressure or depression)

2. Antihistamines

3. Adult Beverages

4. Mouthwashes with alcohol in them

When your mouth is dryer, you have less Saliva. Saliva naturally contains Oxygen, which keeps your mouth healthy and fresh. These bacteria are anaerobic, which simply means that they will thrive and make more sulfur in the presence of little or no oxygen. Thus if you have less Saliva, you have less oxygen, thereby creating an anaerobic environment, perfect for the bacteria to produce more of these odorous and sour/bitter compounds.

Listed below are my Top Recommendations to prevent Dry Mouth:

Post-Nasal Drip

We know that proteins contain amino acids, which in turn contain sulfur compounds (see text above). When a person has post nasal drip, mucus drains and coats the back of the tongue and throat, exactly where bacteria live (see diagram above). Since mucus is made up of interlinked strands of protein, the bacteria have a field day, breaking down these proteins into odorous and sour tasting sulfur type compounds. Strong Antihistamines don’t help, because the drying effect of the antihistamines also creates a problem.

The only method of ending the malodor, sour taste, and bad breath is to use Oxyd-VIII based oral products.

Top Recommendations to Eliminate Post-Nasal Drip:

High Protein Foods

Bacteria love proteins, and certain foods are packed with them:

Milk and Cheese and most other Dairy Products

(The fat content does not matter.) If you are lactose intolerant, do not eat or drink these products! Since your system cannot digest them properly, they are available to the bacteria for an extended period of time.


Fish are high in proteins. As many people eat a high fish diet, logically they make the problem worse.

Coffee with Caffeine (and even without)

Coffee contains high levels of acids which cause the bacteria to reproduce more rapidly and create a bitter taste for many people. (Virtually any acidic type of food will do this.)

I received the starter kit of your product last Thursday. I am 45 yrs old and have suffered from bad breath most of my adult life. My bad breath was a result of my chronic sinus problems. It caused me to lose a lot of self-confidence. I didn’t want to look people in the eye as I spoke to them. I’ve been self-conscious in crowds at church and even around my family. It has been a hopeless situation for years. I was so apprehensive that your product wouldn’t work that I was afraid to risk ordering it.

But I did and I can truly say that even for those few days it has made a remarkable change in my life. I’ve had a significant improvement in my breath since the first use of your starter kit products. I didn’t have the piercing, sickening morning breath that I had for as long as I can remember.

With each use of your product, I’m feeling more and more self-confident. I don’t feel like I have to stay in the back of the room anymore. Your product is truly a God sent. Thank you Dr. Katz for your remarkable vision.

Sincerely, Anita
