What Are Some Good Antifungal Mouthwash Products?

Greetings. Eric Bakker, New Zealand naturopath. Thanks for checking out my video. I often get asked from people from time to
time. “Eric, what are some good antifungal mouthwash
products? My tongue’s white. I’ve got Candida of the mouth. I got bad breath or stuff like this. How can I really up the oral health? I want to get it better. What should I be using?” First, let’s look at what you should not be
not using. It’s a bad idea using these alcoholic mouthwashes
like Listerine and crap like that. If you hear the word “Listerine”, I don’t
know if you’ve got that in America or other countries. Listerine is a mouthwash what’s very commonly
available in Australia and New Zealand. In fact, Dr. Lister was probably the first
guy who understood the effects of killing bacteria. If we go back a few hundred years, Lister
was a guy who actually promoted pumping a compound into surgical rooms to stop the spread
of what they call “contagion”. They didn’t really know about bacteria back
them, but they knew that if they could spray stuff in the air, they could kill stuff that
was causing sickness with people. Lister is a very important person in the development
of the way that we work today and have our knowledge of bacteria. Alcoholic mouthwashes are not really good. Nor is chewing gum. It’s a real back habit for you, your breath
and your oral health. Most gums today contain crappy sugars like
high fructose corn syrup anyway. They’re junk. Also be careful with pharmaceutical products
because many contain drugs in them that have got anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties,
but they destroy the oral beneficial bacteria health. There are many, many bacteria in your mouth. In fact, the two most toxic places in your
body are the mouth and the rectum because they both contain tons of bacteria. If you think about it, there’s stuff going
in your mouth all day, so it’s important to rinse your mouth with fresh water when you’ve
eaten and maybe brush your teeth. Keeping an eye on your teeth. It’s even more important to eat a good, fresh
natural healthy diet with fruits and vegetables and good proteins and avoiding stuff that
I saw a lot of people eat when I was in Los Angeles, like donuts and cola drinks and crap
like that. If you’re going to keep putting crap in your
mouth, what’s your breath going to smell like? Crap. Exactly. Fresh foods. Fresh breath. Crap foods. Crap breath. Is it common sense? What you should naturally to freshen up the
breath, to keep that clean? There are many, many different things you
can take. But if you’re looking at an anti-fungal approach
for the mouth, oil pulling is a good start each morning. One to two tablespoons of a good coconut oil,
a really good quality coconut oil. You can get fermented oils and you can get
virgin oils and all sorts of different coconut oils. Putting a couple of tablespoons in your mouth
before breakfast and swishing that around 10 or 15 times and then spitting it out in
the trash can. That’s a good way because you’re going to
help to pull a lot of bacteria and fungal spores and crap from the mouth into the oil,
which you’re going to eliminate. Doing that every day for about a week or two,
you’ll notice the tongue will start cleaning up and your breath will start becoming a bit
sweater. Apple cider vinegar mixed with a bit of baking
soda is another good one because it creates quite a big pH shift in the mouth, which really
upsets fungi and bacteria. They don’t like that much. Rinsing the mouth with about a good one to
two tablespoons of cider vinegar, a good quality one like Bragg’s, for example, and then add
about a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda with it. Mix it in. That’s bicarbonate soda. Mix it together. Swish it around. So you’ve got a good killing ability and pH
shifting ability there that’s really going to help. What about getting a half a glass of water,
say about four ounces, and put two drops of tea tree oil in there. Swish that around the mouth. Swish it around the mouth. Spit that out. That’s what you can do before bed after you’ve
done your teeth. Oil pulling in the morning. Tea tree oil in the night time before bed. Excellent idea. You can also try brushing your teeth. Put a little bit of sea salt or baking soda
on a toothbrush instead of using those fluoride toothpastes that everyone uses. It’s going to go even further. The other thing, which I’m just about to do
today in springtime, is plant a lot of fresh herbs like basil, oregano. I grow lots of spearmint and peppermint. These things really freshen up the breath
naturally and they’ve got anti-microbial properties about them and they smell and taste great. But remember, it’s eating a good food is the
foundation for good oral health. What did we say at the beginning of the video? Eat crap. Look like crap. Smell like crap. Up to you. Thanks for tuning in.

  1. I am hoping you can help me with this: Every now and then I get a burning sensation of my tongue and sometimes my lips. What, if you know, could be the cause of this?
