bad breath 'after' treating LGS! (help)

Posted by Maria [3201.1351] on March 25, 2006 at 09:06:28:

After going on the Candida diet (no sugar, no carbs, no fruit or juice) and starting taking L.Glutamine, garlic, selenium and probiotic (5+ billion- 2X daily) I still have a white tongue and have developed what my son calls 'doody breath'! I am now chewing sugar free gum all the time and I know the artificial sweetener is so bad for me, but I can't walk around killing people with my breath. Can you give me any advice, I greatly appreciate it!!! Maria

my son's dentist said 70% of bad breath comes from the tongue and recommended brushing the tongue (assuming the teeth are regularly brushed and flossed already).
As for sugar free gum- the ones sweetened with xylitol are not bad as artificial sweeteners go and fight bacteria.
Two brands are Xylichew (the licorice flavor is good- their other flavors are not) and Spry, which costs less than xylichew and has much better flavors- the cinnamon tastes just like dentyne and the other Spry flavors are good, too.

Hi Maria,

A white tongue for an adult is not a healthy sign. It is often seen
in children, but usually only seen in adults with severely
compromised immune systems.

I became very compromised and got the white tongue with a
whole array of various symptoms. I changed my diet big time,
and started taking a supplement called natren's trinity. It cleared
up the white tongue (along with brushing and lightly scraping the
tongue) in just a few days. I doubled the dose for months, and
then went down to a few gel tabs/week. It is very expensive, but
worth every danged penny. I have stood by this product for
about two years now. The breath issue didn't occur with this
product, although I made huge changes in my diet and had die
off.

As well, you might add some coconut oil to your diet. It is an
anti-fungal.

Sorry, Ann.

I have to say that your dentist is FOB! This may be a case of "To a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

FOB = full of baloney :o).

Maria,

I have rarely seen diet alone resolve LGS. It CAN alter the bacterial population though and that is probably why you have the change in breath. SR is, by far, the most important modality for reversing LGS.

What you have done is change the bacterial ecology and now you are leaking a changed ecology production through your still present LGS.

Hope this helps.

Walt

Hi Maria. Try drinking water with a teaspoon of chorophyll in it a couple of times a day.

Thank you Naya. I should probably know this, but where do you find chorophyll? Thank you! Maria

Cliff S Garner PhD's opinion, from archives

this guy in the archives , who says you asked him to contribute articles here, also recommends tongue brushing-and lots more, too. Will run this stuff by my kid, who has a constant bad taste in his mouth. Have had lab tests to rule out kidney failure, as bad taste in mouth is a symptom of that, as well, and the kid has diabetes. The visit to the dentist was to rules out dental causes.The tongue brushing helped some, but didn't totally alleviate problem.
Here's Dr Garner's bit:
How was that last kiss you received? Bad breath? Yuck! Aside from smoking and the
eating of certain odoriferous foods, common causes include poor health, poor digestion, and
especially poor oral hygiene; occasionally bad breath (halitosis) comes from internal yeast
infections. Louise Hay includes anger, thoughts of revenge, foul thinking, vile gossip, and hanging
on to old unpleasant experiences as emotional causes (of course we Light Workers are free of
these!). Daily tooth and tongue brushing and flossing after breakfast and dinner often goes a long
way in eliminating halitosis (please avoid toothpastes containing fluoride, and use simply a little
salt or baking soda, or if you prefer a toothpaste, use Auromère Ayurvedic Toothpaste, fluoride-
free Tom’s Toothpaste or another of the healthful toothpastes; Glide is an especially easy-to-use
dental floss). Recently I came across a product called “YOW!” with good ingredients that whitens
teeth and freshens the breath (2 tablets chewed and swished in the mouth, then spit out) that works
well, although not a substitute for brushing and flossing. Our Las Cruces Co-op health food store
stocks “YOW!.” [I get no stock options or free trips to Bermuda for these commercials--darn!]
Aside from the improved dental hygiene, helpful practices include reducing sugar consumption
(aside from all the other bad effects, sugar tends to foster dental plaque and bacterial infection in
the mouth), alcohol, smoking, and coffee, chewing parsley or cardamom seeds, drinking
peppermint, hyssop or fenugreek tea after meals, eating a good live yogurt, and using 12X
homeopathic nux vomica.

Hi ANN,

Of course people should brush their tongues. I'm not sure that is exactly what Walt was referring to.

P.S. xylitol may kill off friendly bacterias too.

Hi BB, If your order from Vitamin Shoppe, they now carry Spry items. I don't really think it will help that much. Check out Breathrx or Breathcure.

Hi Maria. You will find it in any health food store. It usually comes in a small bottle as liquid.
