Halitosis

Posted by @cbs61752 in Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat, Sep 15, 2012

Does anyone suffer from halitosis? This is not due to neglecting oral hygiene. If you can share cures. I will be happy to learn from you. Any doctor I have talked with was absolutely clueless and looked at me like I had two heads. My dentist only said to sip water. Please help me if you can. I want to resolve this problem.

Often acid reflux can cause halitosis without the person having symptoms such as heart burn. Try something for heart burn like Zantac or prilosec.

I have also suspected that reflux could be the reason for halitosis and have tried a prescription to see if it relieved it. However, I did to feel that it did, and probably was the reason for my osteopenia that I developed. After I discontinued the prescription, I noticed that I no longer Felt the need to take Boniva. I am sorry, but I can't remember the name of the medicine right Nile. It was something similar to Prilosec.

As you can see, I have been trying to explore about any avenue to see what worked. This has been an ongoing saga for me and over time, I have lost my self esteem to be in social settings due to feeling so powerless to correct my problem.
I recently retired and have the time to do more researching and connect with others who may be suffering from the same frustrating situation.

Thank you for your input and effort to help me. I really do appreciate it.

The acid reflux med that I took was Nexium. As mentioned earlier, I experienced a loss of bone density. My internist couldn't figure out the reason for the bone density loss. Wouldn't you think that he would have known the side affect of Nexium???

A friend of mine cured his halitosis by taking 1 tablespoon of chlorophyl a day. He took it at night. Besides the bad breath problem, this green stuff is an excellent source of 'green food.' You can buy this at a health food store...not real expensive.

I have bought chlorophyll and mixed it with water. Did your friend just drink the tablespoon straight or minx it with water?

Thank you for your help, Lately I have been suspecting it is due to Candida because my tongue has a white film on it in the morning. I also have several other symptoms which has made me wonder such as crave sugar, depression, gas, skin rash on my neck, just to name a few. Last night I started to browse the Internet to gain insight. However, I have not read that chronic halitosis is a symptom.

Thank you for your suggestion and time.

I believe he mixed it with non citric juice...like apple... You might have well founded suspicions about Candida. But you can know that the chlorophyl is still good for you! 🙂
I would get tested for Candida. They DO have really 'good tests' for this. At least you can know that this is a malady you can recover from and that is a good thing! I had a senior friend who got extremely sick with Candida... stayed on a strict diet ...became a totally changed, healthy person. Even got married when she was 74!! 🙂
Good luck to you!!

Have you ever had the test for Canida? Just curious as I have read that there is no conventional test for it. I also read that the saliva test that people use at home with the glass of water is not a valid test. Also, is the diet that your friend used the one where you only eat meat, eggs, and vegetables?

Thank you, Bettyann, I so appreciate your time you have taken to help me.

Hello again!
We have a hospital in Denver (Englewood suburb) which is called Porter's Hospital and its run by the Seventh Day Adventist Church. I know that particular denomination is really big on nutrition and natural alternatives as well as the 'regular'stuff... Anyway..this is where my friend Lois went when she was SO sick, being recommended by her own dr's to do so. She told me she spoke to many people who said that Candida is one of the areas that Porter's specializes in... but to be able to 'name' the tests -- I can't do it. 🙂 Maybe its something you could check out (that hospital)

Hmmm, I wish I lived closer to Denver, as i live in Virginia.Maybe I can do more searching to see if I can find a facility closer to me.

I think u should consult a homeopath he will have a sure cure for your problem
There are many possibilities as a cause of helitosis some of them are chronic tonsillitis,continuous posterior nasal drip,frontal sinusitis,etc

I do have a white coating on my tongue in the morning! What kind of problem does that mean and how do you usually treat your patients?

anon73522656

Posted by @anon73522656, Sep 27, 2012

There are many medicine in homeopathy that covers white coating over tongue .final medicine depends upon thorough case history that may take about half an hour to one hour.and I am sure That all of ur complaints will be totally cured only with one and single homeopathic medicine only

White coating usually occur when ur GI system is deranged,that can be due to constipation,indigestion,flatulance or even hyper acidity .etc.

That is a good idea. Thanks for your suggestion.

I have had my tonsils removed, and take sinus meds like Singulair and Zyrtec D. These two medicines keep my chronic sinusitis at bay. I might have some a small amount of a post nasal drip, but the meds pretty much keep this under control.
