    in Condition Related, General Wellness, TCM / / 0 comments

    Let’s face it – everyone has bad breath at one point or another. But most of the time, it’s because you ate your weight in garlic bread or you forgot to brush your teeth one morning. But when bad breath becomes a daily occurrence and you notice that gum and mouthwash don’t fix the problem, it means something is up.
