I Thought it Was Just Bad Breath, but Acid Reflux Was Putting My Life at Risk
Rue Washington | Sunday, March 03, 2024
I thought I was having a heart attack.
In fact, I got as far as dialing 9-1-1…
Only to realize while on the phone was just a bad case of heartburn…
On one hand, I was relieved. And on the other hand, I was embarrassed and mortified. How much money I was about to spend to take an ambulance to a hospital – it makes me shudder to think about.
That was the kick in my butt I needed in order to start taking my acid reflux, GERD, heartburn – whatever you want to call – it seriously.
See, despite having symptoms for months, and years, I never did much to help my acid reflux beyond taking antacids every once in a while.
But now my symptoms were catching up with me…nausea, a ‘sour stomach’ all the time, diarrhea and constipation (sometimes both in the same day!), I was pretty sure I was developing stress ulcers, and my husband even said that my breath was smelly.
Clearly, something was wrong with my digestive system. I assumed it was too much stomach acid or something like that. Or maybe a food intolerance.
I quit eating gluten and that did nothing.
I ate more fiber and that didn’t help either.
I started taking every supplement under the sun and bothered my doctor again and again, trying to fix whatever was wrong with me. My doctor only treated me like I was a crazy hypochondriac, paranoid about my health though.
He told me, “Everyone gets acid reflux, there’s nothing you can do.”
Unfortunately, like many doctors, he hadn’t updated his medical knowledge in the last 30 years, so I kept suffering, having no idea there is a solution out there, and it’s an easy one at that!
But because of so much trial and error, I almost gave up on finding that solution, and told myself an upset stomach, bad breath, and acid reflux were just a part of getting older.
That’s when I just so happened to schedule a routine dentist appointment, but my regular dentist was all booked up so I needed to see a new dentist, Dr.Frank.
The moment Dr.Frank had me open my mouth, he backed up as if my breath had punched him in the face.
“Wow, you have a terrible case of halitosis,” Dr.Frank said, “Bad breath is often a sign of poor health, are you having other symptoms like acid reflux as well? Your teeth look somewhat eroded by acid too.”
I couldn’t believe a dentist was accusing me of having bad breath! But at the same time, I knew he was right, “Yes,” I admitted. “Heartburn, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers, my digestion is terrible, I’m nauseated all the time.”
Dr.Frank smiled, “I was going to mention that actually. It seems like you have a bacterial imbalance in your mouth that is causing bad breath and it is likely linked to all your other symptoms too. Have you heard of the bacterium, H-pylori?”
I shook my head.
“H-pylori,” he explained, “is a common bacterial infection that is linked to everything from bad breath, to acid reflux, to ulcers. People think that an overly acidic stomach is the cause of acid reflux, but the truth is H-pylori irritates the digestive lining causing ‘acid breath,’ and nauseousness, and at later stages it eats through the digestive lining to the extent that it can cause Ulcers and long-term inflammation is even connected to cancer.”
I shuddered, “But what about mouth health?” I asked, “What does this have to do with being a dentist?”
Dr.Frank chuckled, “You know how often people go to the dentist to complain about their bad breath? All the time. And the truth is, H-pylori doesn’t just live in your stomach. It lives in your mouth and irritates the gums too, leading to gingivitis.”
No wonder my gums tended to bleed while I brushed my teeth! But I only felt more hopeless, “What am I supposed to do about all this then?” I asked, “I always brush my teeth. I eat healthy. I’ve already tried so many things, do I need to take antibiotics?”
“Goodness no!” said Dr.Frank, “Antibiotics might cure it in the short term, but in the long-term it makes the problem worse because they kill the good bacteria too. Instead, you actually want the opposite: more good bacteria.
“See, too much H-pylori kills the good bacteria in your digestive system too and they need to be balanced out.
“So you need to re-introduce Probiotics to your digestive system,” he finished.
“Alright,” I replied, “sounds simple but how in the world am I supposed to do that? Eat yogurt?”
“Yogurt, I’m afraid, is not enough,” the good doctor replied, “Not all probiotics are created equal. The majority of probiotics in stores are not bioactive. This means that the body rejects them, or has a hard time absorbing them, or worse…only sees them as invaders. In certain cases, this can lead your body to an immune response that causes a white-blood-cell attack on more of the good bacteria living in your gut.”
I wanted to bang my head against the wall. This was a roller-coaster of emotions. “So it’s hopeless.” I stated, looking down at the ground and feeling my guts turning with acid – the stress was literally making me nauseous.
“No, no, no,” Dr.Frank chuckled, “There’s an easy cure. I wouldn’t be talking to you about this if there wasn’t. I don’t want to scare you! never said that! Your bad breath can be easily solved with Best Breath.”
“Best Breath?” I asked, “What’s that?”
“Well, they are mouth probiotics, essentially. All you have to do is let them melt in your mouth and they feed the K2 health bacteria in your mouth while defeating the bad, it then has a domino effect on your entire digestive system.
“Modern tooth-care with mouthwash actually can make the bacteria balance in the mouth imbalanced by killing good bacteria along with bad, so you should always be sure to take Best Breath right after using mouthwash.
“You can take up to three a day, at any time,” Dr.Frank said.
I was getting excited. Was the answer to my bad breath AND my acid reflux finally here?! “Where can I buy them?” I asked.
“Best Breath is new, so I’m afraid you can only buy them online right now,” Dr.Frank explained.
As soon as I got home, I looked up Best Breath reviews. Wow, there were a bunch. They had so many fans! A quick glance revealed more than 2000 positive reviews.
Seriously, I’ll never be without this
After taking this product I have seen an incredible difference. I can eat my favorite foods again without worrying about acid reflux or nasty bathroom side effects.

Does the job… literally.
No more bad breath, I never get sick anymore. No more acid reflux or red skin either, I think my inflammation is way down. I almost can’t believe how a probiotic can help appearance so much, but I’m living proof of it!

One of my best purchases this year
How have I never heard of Best Breath before? Everyone in my office has commented on how I have magically good breath even after drinking coffee but I will never tell them my secret. No more sour stomach either.

After seeing that over 8 million bottles have been sold world-wide and that famous doctors from the National Health Institution recommended them, I knew I had to give them a try.
Admittedly, I was still skeptical that they would work to fix acid reflux or breath as bad as mine, but I ordered it right away. They had a money-back guarantee so I figured I had nothing to lose, and besides, it seemed like they were selling out quickly so I had to order them while I still had a chance.
As soon as I got them, I did something I never do anymore because I get too concerned about how it will give me acid reflux: I ordered pizza. Smelly anchovy pizza to be exact!
Then I invited my friend over to eat the pizza with me. (I ordered her a pepperoni, I know most people don’t like anchovies.)
I decided I would test my acid reflux and bad breath at once.
To be safe, I decided to have a Best Breath both before and after the pizza so that my stomach would be coated with probiotics.
When I sucked on the Best Breath I was pleasantly surprised at the gentle minty feeling that floated through my mouth.
But the real test was the pizza. I took one bite, then another. I finished a full slice with no problem, then had some soda. Still no problem…I ate another slice.
Then I had another Best Breath.
I waited for the queasiness to come, and waited, but my stomach felt fine. Good even.
Sure, maybe my acid reflux was cured, for now, but would my breath be fine too?
I turned towards my friend and without warning her, I breathed in her face. “How’s my breath smell?” I asked.
“Fine,” my friend replied. “Minty.”
It felt like a miracle.
Over the following days, as long as I took Best Breath, I didn’t get bad breath and it prevented me from having heartburn or acid reflux, except for one time when I overdid it at a chinese buffet, but even then it wasn’t as bad as it used to be.
I think it really was fighting back the H-pylori infestation in my digestive system too, because the longer I took it, the less I seemed to need it. My only regret is that I didn’t order more than one bottle when I first bought it because soon after I bought it the price went up and I went on to take it for another 2 months before I felt I was cured. I also felt like having some more as a backup would be good, just in case.
Besides getting rid of my acid reflux, the craziest thing is I don’t get morning breath anymore. No morning breath, no coffee breath, nothing!
That’s all thanks to Best Breath. It is definitely my favorite product of the year and I couldn’t recommend it more!

I have battled acid reflux for years and tried almost everything. I am three weeks free of horrible burning sensations in the morning and yes, my breath is now always fresh too. This is a life changer for those of you who are suffering. Give it a try, I hope it works for you too.

Great way to keep your entire intestinal system healthy honestly. They taste great and a bottle lasts you a little more than a month depending on your usage.

"I tried EVERYTHING to fix my bad breath. I was brushing my teeth 6 times a day, using mouthwash, changing my diet constantly. That’s when my dentist brother-in-law told me about the real cause behind bad breath. Thank god for these probiotics!! They could've saved my life."
"When my wife stopped kissing me, I knew I REALLY had to do something about my halitosis. I had bad breath for years, but it got so bad that Martha wouldn’t even come near me! I asked my dentist, he told me about Best Breath. That little pill worked some serious magic for my stinky breath."
"My breath was so bad, life didn’t even seem worth living. I was gagging on the stench of my own mouth. I was at the end of my rope when I ordered Best Breath, after years and thousands of dollars at dentists and doctors. Two days after I started taking those magical little pills, my breath returned to normal. I thank God every day for Best Breath!"

"My allergies have a super-gross side effect—a nasal drip at the back of my throat that gives me the worst breath ever. Half of the year, I’ve been suffering from the double-whammy of feeling crappy AND having terrible breath. After trying so many different things, I wasn’t sure that a little probiotic pill could really help. But Best Breath really works like a charm!! After just a couple weeks in the height of allergy season, I have fresh, great breath. I’m so happy!
