[WORKED TEMPORARILY] I have noticed that my bad breath doubles or triples with exercise. Running, weight training or even brisk walk for 15 odd minutes will boost the bacteria growth in my mouth. Taste in the mouth and the odor just gets worse and worse. I think it also shoots up a lil in the winters.
Spent countless dollars and still go through this hell every day. I think I have tried everything mentioned on this site, some work and some don't which is pretty normal. In the last 10 odd years I have travelled to all different corners of the globe and met different kinds of doctors. From Chinese traditional medicine to African witch craft doctors, from Muslim hakeems to Jewish Rabbis to Bible cures to Buddha meditation to Yoga, from Indian herbal medicine to acupuncture, acupressure, hypnotism therapy, traditional Japanese medicine, Arabic cures to Red Indian remedies, from meeting with old masters of Shaolin Temple to spending time with vegan Baba's of India, from Russian Babushka advice to Allopathic, Osteopathic to homeopathic to German medicine, world renown ENT, GI, and also to top ranked surgeons who completely removed my tonsils. But no permanent cure.
From what I have learned, there is NO CURE known to man for chronic bad breath or Halitosis. It's a genetic disorder and my only hope is that stem cell research will perhaps explore this avenue to finally find a cure. I am sure that will be long after we are gone from this world. (I usually envy and smile at folks who come up with the suggestions to keep a good oral hygiene, floss, diet, carbs, protein, lots of water, green foods, organic juices, good sleep, etc.. The only thought that runs into my mind at these times is, , , "You have NO IDEA what it is"
For now, I think we all just need each other's support and keep trying to treat the problem with different kinds of remedies that are ALL a temporary relief. Sometimes while driving to work, I smile and tell myself, "These are my happy pains".
There is a lot of talk here about 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, please be cautious that it does have side effects. It's abrasive but more importantly it's a poison. 1/2 HP and 1/2 H2O works for a couple of hours but I have yet to hear from any doctor who would recommend this for a long term use. Many dentists would not recommend the use for more than a week. Sometimes they even prescribe ONCE a week for 3 or 4 weeks and that's it. I used 50/50 ratio for a few weeks and got the burning sensation in the throat and nostrils till I got a throat infection. My mucous had blood and the doctors put me on antibiotics to kill the infection. I still use it with 1 and 5 ratio but I know no doctor will recommend it for long term use.
Personally, I will be jumping up and down with joy and happiness if I find any remedy that safely covers up the problem 100% for 4 hours and allows me to eat, drink and talk freely as anyone other person. I will gladly do it in the morning, after lunch and before the bed.
