Hanna’s Home Remedies for Colds

  • Boil cloves, cinnamon, sage, and bay leaves in apple juice. Drink warm.
  • Kale gives us resistance to colds. It has natural sulfur and is full of vitamins. Eat this when you are sick.
  • Currants help boost our body’s resistance to colds so if your friends and family are sick, be sure to add these to your diet to keep the cold away.
  • White and red onions can be made into a soup with tamari or other broth. Chop several onions and make a strong onion soup.
  • Broccoli has natural sulfur which strenthens your resistance to colds so be sure to eat plenty before and while you are sick.
  • Vitamins A, C, iodine, calcium, and trace minerals in elderberry and peppermint are important when you are sick. Try drinking peppermint tea and finding a natural elderberry syrup from a company you trust. We like this one.
  • Thyme helps our bodies resist and prevent colds. Drink one cup of  thyme tea daily when those around you are sick.
  • Grapefruit is useful when you have a cold. Grate teh skin very finely into a mug, add the juice of half the grapefruit and fill the remainder of teh mug with hot water.
  • Many of us have sore throats along with our colds. Get a home remedy for Hanna’s sore throat soother here.

There are as many home remedies for bad breath as there are causes so whether you’re dehydrated, ate too much garlic or onion, or are experiencing an overgrowth of bacteria in your mouth, we’re here to help.  Bad breath can make all sorts of situations uncomfortable so check out these home remedies to solve your bad breath situation!

Herbal Home Remedies for Bad Breath

Rosemary twig

Rosemary and other home remedies for bad breath are in your spice rack!

Dill: Try chewing dried dill seeds or adding fresh dill to your meals to freshen breath.

Thyme: Make a tea of dried thyme and hot water; allow to steep for a few minutes. Drink several cups a day.

Caraway Seed and Anise Seed: These two seeds mixed together make a great home remedy for bad breath. Try bruising the seeds and steeping in hot water for a tea or using them in your meals. You could also try chewing the seeds to freshen your breath.

Rosemary: Prepare a tea of dried rosemary and hot water; allow it to steep for five minutes then cool completely. Gargle with this tea several times a day.

Juniper Berries: Chew on these to remedy bad breath.

Parsley Leaves: Eat fresh parsley alone after every meal and throughout the day to remedy bad breath.

Other Remedies for Bad Breath

Hanna taught us that our body utilizes itself to give us signals that something is wrong internally. For example, with bad breath she instructed us to check our gall bladder and liver health as bad breath could be an indication that something may be faulty with those organs. Along with the not-so-obvious sources, like the liver, gall bladder, or even a zinc deficiency, came the practical places to check as a cause of bad breath like the gums. If you aren’t taking proper care of your mouth, you could be developing gum disease which produces a foul odor in the mouth as the condition worsens. The health of your mouth plays a role in the health of your entire body! (see how oral health affects your heart here)

Hanna recommended choline, inositol, chlorophyll (in tablet or liquid form), and B-complex to assist in ridding your mouth of odor as well as the homeopathic remedy Arsenicum album.

Everyday To-Do List to Remedy Bad Breath

Woman's mouth

Brushing is the easiest remedy for bad breath!

We’ve all heard that we should brush after every meal and floss each night and if you’re struggling with issues of bad breath, give it a try for a while and you’re bound to see improvement. In a perfect world you’d have time to brush between meetings, phone calls, or errands during the day but we don’t live in a perfect world.

  • When you can’t find time to brush after meals, try flushing your mouth with water and chewing gum that contains xylitol to increase saliva and help keep your teeth clean.
  • Using a toothpick to sweep food debris from your teeth and gums is also a good idea as it keeps bacteria from setting up shop and causing further odor.
  • Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day as well. Dry mouth can encourage growth of bacteria on the teeth and gums so keep fluids, especially water, on hand throughout the day.
  • You can also try gargling in the morning and at night before bed to limit the amount of bacteria in your mouth, especially in the hard to reach places.
  • Pay special attention when brushing and be sure to brush the back of your tongue, the roof of your mouth and your cheeks; bacteria doesn’t only live on your teeth!

Some of these home remedies are obvious but we often forget that the basics are usually the best place to start when attempting to improve our health. These remedies aren’t meant to treat any disease and you should have regular checkups with your dentist to be sure there isn’t a more serious problem with your teeth or gums beyond odor. Share with us any home remedies for bad breath you’ve tried, we’d love to hear them and check out our website with an entire section on tooth care!
