How to Solve 8 Embarrassing Health Problems No One Likes to Admit They Have
- Bad breath
In addition to maintaining proper oral hygiene, you can chew a handful of aniseed, fennel seeds, parsley, or mint to neutralize odors. Another option is to rinse the mouth with a mouthwash made with a cup of water, a teaspoon of baking soda, and a few drops of peppermint oil.
- Stained teeth
Smoking, tea, coffee, and red wine are some of the major culprits for stained teeth. To restore their natural color, apply activated charcoal to your teeth or try our oil pulling, preferably with coconut oil.
Belching can be quite embarrassing! To avoid uncomfortable situations, sip on ginger after meals and change the way you eat. This means slow and thorough chewing as well as avoiding drinking through a straw.
To solve flatulence and belching, eat more fermented foods or take probiotics in order to keep gas-producing bugs in check. In addition, drink herbal teas to improve digestion and reduce flatulence and bloating.
- Cold sores
These small blisters are both ugly and painful, aren’t they? To shorten their duration, apply coconut oil a few times daily. Alternatively, apply zinc oxide cream which accelerates healing time and eat zinc-rich foods to boost your immunity.
- Body odor
To get rid of strong bad odor, avoid foods like onion, garlic, and processed foods, all of which increase sweat and body odor. Drink plenty of water; eat more parsley, mint, and sage; apply witch hazel, which lowers skin`s pH; and detox your pits.
- Smelly feet
Combine 3 parts water with a part vinegar and essential oils of choice. Soak the feet for about twenty minutes. Alternatively, make your own deodorizing foot using essential oils, arrowroot powder, and kaolin clay.
- Nail fungus
Crumbling and thickening toenails are quite embarrassing and oftentimes even painful. To treat this condition at home, supplement with olive leaf extract, which is a great antifungal and antiviral agent and apply undiluted tea tree oil to the affected nails on a daily basis.
