Symptoms, conditions and causes

Why do I have bad breath?

Bad breath is a common issue brought on by fungus and mold in your mouth. As you know, we also have good bacteria in our bodies that assist with many functions. The key is to get rid of bad bacteria, fungus and mold but at the same time keep good cells and bacteria. This is where oregano oil comes in.


• Take oregano oil

Bad breath on keto:

Does your mouth smell like acetone (like nail polish or paint thinner) on keto? Acetone is one of the three types of ketones. It’s a byproduct of fat burning. An acetone-like smell simply means your body is still adapting to keto. It’s safe and temporary.


  • Continue with the Healthy Keto ® diet

  • Make sure your carbs are below 20 grams or even less

  • Be moderate with your protein

  • Take electrolytes and more fluid

  • Take more chlorophyll (vegetables)

  • Do intermittent fasting to speed up the transition

(Note: If you are type I diabetic, consult with your doctor prior to continuing the keto diet.)
