- Eating food like garlic and onions.
- Bad teeth/oral hygiene.
- Post nasal drip.
- Digestive issues.
We can’t help you if you eat stinky food or have bad teeth. That leaves #3 and #4.
#3 Post Nasal Drip
Post nasal drip is like a slight runny nose down the back of your throat. It’s caused by a slight allergy or other irritation of the nasal passages. Acupuncture and herbs can help with this, just like it can help with allergies, breathing and sinus issues.
#4 Digestive Issues
Digestive issues like acid reflux, some causes of gas, constipation, etc. respond well to acupuncture and herbs. Digestion isn’t supposed to be disgusting, but if it is, talk to us! Your acupuncturist can evaluate you and come up with a personalized treatment.
The nice thing is that in treating bad breath, we’ll also be addressing other symptoms. Just like all drugs have side effects, acupuncture treatments almost always have side effects. The difference is that acupuncture side effects are a good thing!
