African Birdseye Cayenne Pepper has cured my dry mouth problems! I had dry mouth from medications for a health condition. I originally bought some cayenne capsules for cholesterol and circulation problems, after doing research on this site, and other websites. I even found a reference to their website on earthclinic! My cold feet and hands are much better than they were. My skin was very dry, and is not anymore, and I am not using any lotion either. It is also suppose to be good for your heart! I have not had my labs done yet, to see if my cholesterol is better, but will let you know.. Do your research! One of the wonderful surprises for me, was no more dry mouth! I take 1 capsule 3 times a day with food, and sprinkle a little on my food first. I have had no side effects from Cayenne either! I also noticed a difference less than an hour after taking my first capsule!

Dry Mouth Cured With Vit E Carotene

I couldn't sleep and I would cough because my mouth was so dry. I had to drink water all night. Vit. E and Vitamin A (carotene) has alleviated the symptoms almost completely. My eyes aren't as dry either. Vit E (400) in the dry form is more effective and it enhances the effectiveness of the Vit. A.(25,000) I tried Vit A (carotene) alone and it didn't work. It needs the help of vitamin E. I take it every day.

I was experiencing the same thing! I was constantly thirsty. I drank 3 gallons of water a day once. I even tried the WATER CURE which added sea salt to your water but it required waayy too much salt and I ended up more thirsty.

What has helped is adding 1/16th of a teaspoon of quality sea salt to each cup of water. I went from drinking 2 gallons of water to 1 gallon (which is good since Im working out and living in a hot environment).

I think its a good idea to get tested by your Doc b/c excessive thirst is an indicator of diabetes.

Hello Howard,

You are giving a perfect description of my mouth in the morning when I become a mouth breather secondary to a stopped up nose. I think the answer to your problem is finding the answer to why you are a mouth breather! If your nose stays stopped up all the time, start looking for the answer by leaving off all smelly stuff like perfumes, after shaves, colognes, etc. If this helps you also need to avoid other people wearing smelly stuff. Usually if a nose is clogged all the time it is from an allergy if there is no malformation of the nasal passages.

The second thing I would leave off in search for the basic problem is smelly soaps. Hope you find the problem and can become a nose breather and get rid of your problem.

Howard I don't have dry mouth quite as badly as you, but lately I have been waking up with a parched mouth. The one thing that stops it is if I drink a tall glass of water before going to sleep. That means I have to get up in the middle of the night to pee, but it gives me another chance to rehydrate with more water. Let me know if this helps!

Dry mouth: When I lay down to sleep my mucous membranes in my mouth become VERY dry and the inside of my top lip sticks to my teeth.My tongue becomes dry as if I have have an extended time on the "booze" ,something I have never done. On standing up the "juice" flows again into my mouth. OK I know I am a mouth breather and have been all my life but this has only become a problem in the last 2 years and its getting worse. It wakes me four or five times each night. I have a few sips of water, everything is fine for a short while and then it starts all over again. Can anyone help?

I drink alot of water everyday...it's the only thing I drink. Even drinking all this water my mouth still feels dry.

I brush my teeth every morning after breakfast and every night before I go to bed. My question is how come my mouth always feels dry afterwards...it never feels fresh and "alive" sort of speak. :(

Also I always get this build up of white film on my gums or teeth which I think is just nasty. Shortly after brushing my teeth I can run my pinky finger across my gums and this white film just accumaltes... :(

I stopped using commercial toothpaste/mouthwash a couple of months ago. I came across a natural toothpaste and mouthwash(it's called THIEVES)and it worked great(the first time I used it my mouth felt fresh and alive for the first time...it was great) but it was just too expensive to keep getting. So I went searching for another natural toothpaste...found one so tried it out. It's made up of like 21 herbs. Tried it and no good. My mouth feels like I haven't had a drink in 2 days...my mouth was just really dry and the white film came right back.

So how do I get rid of this dry mouth feeling after I brush my teeth AND how do I get rid of this white film(which is on my gums or teeth).

Thank you for any help.
