Halitosis - Food & Sex

My StoryHello friends, I'm male, 30. I have been suffering from bad breath for the past 15 years. Recently I could successfully minimize the foul smell. I found that following are the main reasons of high BB. 1. Junk food/non-veg/nuts/sweet/oil-rich food 2. Over Ejaculation/Sex/Masturbation Reason #1 - Bad food Whenever I have junk food like burger, bread, bakery items, sweets, egg, meat or oil-rich food, nuts etc my bad breath (through mouth and nose) is found to shoot-up. For the past 1 month, I have stopped taking such food, and my BB has come down rapidly. Reason #2 - Sex Whenever I ejaculate more than twice or thrice in 3 days, my bad breath is increasing. (The reason is, post-sex my mouth becomes dry and nose will be filled with stuffs). I am not a sex maniac, but sex is the only stress-buster these days. I am trying to control it. I am on a mission to be sex-free for the next 30 days, till Christmas. I will keep you posted with my research. Need your encouragement! :-)

How long does it take for diet changes to take effect?

DiariesHi All - we've seen some good results of diet changes helping people. Can we share what changes people have made & how long they have taken to make a difference (or whether they haven't made a difference)..

I have been on a (kind of) macro diet (no processed foods/sugar/red meat/dairy) for a week with no improvement so far...going to add in gluten free next week too

My StoryHi guys,

I've been looking at the site for quite a while, and just decided to make an account. Here's my story, which I'm sure a lot of you can relate to. I've tried to fit in everything that might be relevant.

I'm not sure when my BB began tbh, the first time I ever remember being told I had BB was when I was 4 or 5 by a girl at school. I remember her comments of "your breath stinks" every now and again but for all I know that could have been due to food!

Aged 7 I had an extremely bad case of tonsillitis, along with dehydration which hospitalised me for 3 days. I don't know if I did before this, but I now have very cryptic tonsils although they aren't that large.

I was first conscious of my BB aged 11 or 12 (when I started secondary/high school) and what started out as a funny taste in my mouth soon turned into not wanting to be in a public place unless I had gum in my mouth. I have no memory of being told I had BB during my time at secondary school, but it was always something I was conscious of. Throughout my childhood I think I had one or two tonsil stones, which I didn't take much notice of - I only found them because they must have fallen into my mouth.

Fast forward 4 years, I'm now 21 and what I thought was a manageable condition seems to be getting on top of me especially in the last few weeks. Up until a few weeks ago I was happy in the "knowledge" that as long as I had gum in my mouth and a bottle of water in my hand then nobody would ever know. Unfortunately, I was wrong..

I'm not sure exactly what happened, it all seems a bit of a blur, but I came home one day and asked my mum outright "do I have bad breath?" to which she replied "not that I've ever noticed, come here and breathe on me" I did, and she told me she still couldn't smell anything. Throughout that evening I asked her several more times, even after eating, and every time she said no! She is not the type of parent to lie, she would just tell me to my face.

Anyway, that night I text my best friend and asked her if she'd ever noticed that I smell at all. She said "No, I'm the one that usually smells! You work in an office, and don't even sweat.. Why would you smell!?" About a week later when I saw her next I outright asked her if my breath smelt bad, again she replied no and asked me to come closer to breath on her face - I did have gum in my mouth at the time but she said she still couldn't smell anything! Feeling more confident, I stayed over at her house that night brushed my teeth in the morning etc. She then drove me home and I could tell my breath wasn't great - she made a passing comment after I said goodbye that "you're not smelling that fresh", obviously this stuck in my mind.

At this point I'd been dating a guy I met for about 4 weeks, we'd kissed before because I thought my BB was manageable (I kind of hoped I had halitophobia). One friday after id been for a few drinks after work I met him to go for dinner, gum in mouth of course. We met, he kissed me on the cheek, and we started walking to the restaurant. I was a little tipsy at this point so I don't remember the exact version of events clearly but he said something along the lines of "Oh look, these were two for one.. do you want one!?" Holding two packs of gum in his hand. I've never seen gum on offer anywhere -_-

I told him I had my own and put ANOTHER one in my mouth. Anyway we went for dinner etc, he gave me a kiss and walked me to the train station.

Now, he has been absolutely fine with me since then - asked to see me again a lot but I now keep making excuses! I don't want to subject someone to my BB!

After the weekend I told two friends at work what had happened and again they said NO I have NEVER noticed that you have BB at all. Okay, I know people lie all the time - but what I have also noticed now is a stronger smell in the back of my throat. I get a very dry mouth, and constantly have a bottle of water with me. Before, chewing gum would hide the taste and smell, or so I thought, but now I'll but 1,2,3,4,5,6 pieces of gum in at once and I can still taste the accumulation of phlegm in my throat! It's thick and clear, and when I spit it out it has no odor but I KNOW it has an odor at the back of my throat.

Anyway, last week I went to the theatre with my mum who I suspect has the same problems that I do because her breath smells how I imagine mine does. She doesn't seem to care, even though I've told her! I always offer her gum and sometimes she just says no. So, we were at the theatre, and I could smell her breath and thought oh God that girl next to my mum must be able to smell her too! And the man next to me must be able to smell me! I had to get out, I lied to my mum and told her I felt unwell so we went home. On the tube home I knew her breath was really bad, although she seemed oblivious (even though I told her and kept trying to give her gum) The woman next to her actually put her head in her hands!!

Now, I've noticed that people cover their noses or touch their faces and look at me when I sit next to them :| I'll sit there putting more and more gum in my mouth knowing that it isn't helping in the slightest.

I've just booked the week off work, because it's gotten to the point where I feel like I'll have a panic attack on the tube.

Next Friday I'm having my tonsils out, though, after reading the posts on here I don't expect this to help. And on Tuesday I started the candida diet - not noticed any die off yet.

Over the last few months I've tried:

the Oral B oral irrigator,
a neti pot with sea salt and baking soda,
6 Chinese Chlorella tablets a day (500mg)
2 Acidophilus with pectin (3 billion active cultures) talets a day
1 zinc & vit C tablet a day (the ones that dissolve in water)
3 Calcium and Vit D tablets a day
Cutting out all dairy products
Eating more green leafy veg.

I've had the following test results :

All hormone levels fine
Iron deficiency (been tested since and this is now fine)
Allergy test (blood test) fine
No vitamin deficiencies.

I'm going to the doctor today to give a stool sample to be tested for H. Pylori - my dad also used to have this - but I don't think this can be the reason because if I burp it doesn't smell! It's the build up of mucous which causes the smell even if I don't open my mouth. People on the train smell it when I'm breathing through my nose! Doctor has also prescribed me drugs for Silent reflux (LPR) which I'll pick up today when I give them a stool sample.

Lastly, I have the following other issues:

Bloating when eating, particularly carbs
BO that wont go away even when I wash
Excessive sweating
EXTREMELY heavy periods

I would like to add that I went to the dentist a week ago, who said that my teeth are perfect. I have no fillings, never had braces either. But I have scheduled a "deep clean" in two days time, although I know the smell does not come from my mouth.

I have an amazing job, good friends, good parents, someone who seems to want to date me even though my mouth smells like a sewer! But, this is getting worse and worse, I can't manage it anymore and I really feel that this will RUIN my life.

Sorry that this was such a long story - I just need to get all of this off my chest :(

If anyone has ANY suggestions I'll be willing to try ANYTHING!

Hello from the uk :-)

DiariesHi everybody am 38 year old male from north west uk .i have suffered from bad breath from an early age from which the doctor told my mum they just don't know what causes bad breath :-( . I used to be so outgoing friendly and loved life but as av got older and lost all my friends I have become lonely and depressed am not a bad looking lad and always done well with the ladies but now I just dnt give anybody a chance to get near me and this is killing me :-( I hate my lonely life so much I miss cuddling and kissing such simple things taken away from me . I have had my tonsils removed due to tonsil stones and for maybe 4 months after that my breath was ok but now it's back to a horrible stench . My dentist says my gums are in good condition and my teeth I have had X-rays all along my gums and all is fine . But it isn't if I touch my gum above my 2 front teeth a yellow coloured puss comes out that smells exactly the same as a tonsil stone :-(.my tongue is always a whitey yellow colour and I get a foul taste and sum times when I floss if I press a bit to hard and my gum bleeds the blood stinks . Something is building up somewhere in my mouth and forcing his puss out of my gums . I think we have a deficiency of some sort our body is lacking a certain something to fight this bacteria causing all our problems. Anyway please dnt just read this post and move along . PLEASE SAY HELLO AND REPLY TO MY THOUGHTS
also there is an app available called KIK I just thought with so many of us being so lonely we could all add each other and chat away when feeling down or just want a chat .

Bad Breath from coated tongue

My StoryAfter suffering from bad breath for over five years I was desperate to find a cure to this problem. I always noticed i had a white coated tongue , also have post nasal drip and allergies no matter what antibiotic or mouthwash , i still had bad breath. Matter fact mouthwashes made it worst and tongue scrapers didnt help no matter how hard i scraped. But one day i had this wild idea of scraping my tongue with a razor to reduces the length of the papillae knowing well that a shorter papillae wont trap much food and bacteria to cause bad breath. After a week of trying this desperate act my halitosis has been reduced by 80%. I know it will take close to a month to get it totally go away. If tongue scrapers and mouth washes havent helped try the razor. Just the regular stick single razor for shaving. Though it is unlikely to cut your tongue while scraping, still be careful. I hope this help with those with bad breath from back of tongue and the tongue it self. Ever wonder why many people have allergies and PND but no bad breath. It is because they have smooth pink tongue. As you keep doing this every night before bed or morning which ever way u want , you tongue will turn pink and u will feel more silva on your tongue and less stickiness. I read this could damage taste buds but i still taste food better than before and have have conversation right after eating without worrying about my breath. Havent had many reactions to my breath like before. Still have bad days every now and then but only when i have been eating and snacking without cleaning. Good luck people. Couldnt keep this to myself but share.

How i improved my serious chronic bad breath

My StoryHello everyone, this my first post ever. I'm just going to get right to the point. I have foul breath and I have had it for as long as I can remember. Recently about a year ago, it was getting stronger and I started to notice it more. I started getting really bad anxiety and so I couldn't live my life anymore. I shut everyone out, I quit my job. I couldn't go out, even to the grocery store because I would get anxious knowing that my breath smelled very foul. You could smell my breath from 10 ft away. People made fun of me all the time. They covered their noses and of course backed away from me. Boyfriend broke up with me.

I tried everything, theta breath, grapefruit seed extract, zinc, chlorophyll , detoxes, acid reflux medicine, h.p medicine, sea salt, nettle tea, blisk12, probiotics, nothing was working

After 22 years of bad breath, my breath is not foul. My breath has been okay for a whole week now. I'm not positive that I have the cure and that my breath is fresh but I know it is at least OKAY. And honestly I'm extremely happy that it's at least okay now. It has only been a week so I will keep updating.

BREAKTHROUGH: I STOPPED EATING ALL TYPES OF MEAT, beans, fish, DAIRY, and anything that I felt would make my breath smell bad.

Also, make sure you poop everyday, if you don't, eat more fiber or take fiber pills like I do.

Lately I've been eating rice noodles, vegetables . It's hard because I love junk food BUT TRUST ME, it's worth giving up to live a somewhat normal life. PLEASE GIVE IT A TRY. After 3-5 days of eating this way and sticking to a strict diet, you will see results. You CANNOT cheat.

I lick the back of my wrist to smell now and I don't smell anything. When I was eating meat, my breath smelled sour. Also my brother said sometimes my breath smelled like fart. But now he says he doesn't smell anything.

Good luck everyone. Please give this a try for at least a week .
It'll be worth it

What seems to have worked after 20 years

My StoryThis will be briefed

Diagnosed and treated for h pylori. H pylori gone but BB stayed. White cell count low like most people.

I've tried everything that everyone else here has. Zinc, Thera breath etc. Nothing worked.

Finally, I started keeping a journal. Noted everything I did and are and wether I got a reaction. Also, asked someone I trusted to smell breath periodically and let me know when they smelt something.

Between the journal and trying different things and the smell tests it realized that ginger tea helped a lot. Further investigation and analysis let me to this.

The bb was causes by post nasal drip (post nasal drip causes by allergies). Nose gets inflamed and mucus drips to the back of the throat. Bacteria react with the mucus and cause a bad smell. Solution was to avoid things that caused an allergic reaction and do things that help reduce mucus in the body. Lower the mucus production in the body by avoid triggers and taking proactive things to reduce it and bb goes down and tongue coating disappears. The tongue coating is just mucus being digested by bacteria. That's why you can get a tongue coating when you haven't even eaten. And that's why the tongue coating gets worse after eating. You are eating foods that cause your body to produce more mucus (milk, soy milk, processed foods). Look up "foods that cause mucus" and "mucus free diet. Follow the diet and the mucus will go down.

Now ginger helps your body digest better and reduces mucus production. Organic apply cider vinegar helps with mucus as well. Get a saline nasal spray and clear your sinuses when u are on the go. Netipot in morning and evening. Yes I know you know to do all these things but they didn't work. That's because you have to do ALL THESE THINGS. focus on lowering mucus production. Anything that causes more mucus you avoid. The mucus is the root cause. That's why netipot by itself helps. Or vitamin c by itself helps. Or not eating sugar or milk helps. We have all done tons of research and know what helps! But the thing is you have to do all the things that attack mucus. U can feel it in your throat and dripping down from your nose. It's falling right on the back of your tongues then sliming down.

One note. I tried Swanson blis k12. It made my tongue completely free of white but I still go reactions. I looked at the ingredients and it has milk compounds in it and milk causes mucus! I stopped taking it and all the probiotics I had and mucus reduces. Now I eat fresh foods, drink ginger tea, avoid all mucus forming foods, netipot and saline spray when I am on the go and things have improved a lot. I'm not ready to say cured yet :) will wait a bit but wanted to get this message out in case it helps someone.

So long story short is research mucus forming foods and avoid them. Then take steps things that reduce mucus. Make sure it's natural. Don't bother with mucinex and the likes. Worked for me 5 years ago but it stops being effective after a week. Focus on diet and natural solutions to attach mucus production in your body and get someone you trust to smell you and confirm (that goes a long way). And journal too. It helps you to see patterns for you own condition

Sorry for bad grammar and rambling. I'm in a rush but made myself come here in case it helped someone. Don't give up hope and keep praying to Jesus :)

Three easy steps

My StoryThis is story of someone I know, he had bad breath for more than 15 years, and this how he got rid of it.

1 - deep cleaning: you need to go to dentist and ask for deep cleaning by name

2 - brushing: people with bad breath brush but they do not brush the correct way. the following is the youtube showing the correct way of brushing. brush this way every day for at least 10 min
3 - Water: always carry a bottle of water with you and drink continuously

if you follow these 3 steps your BB will go for ever


Bad Breath Halitosis. Is a great website and i give you a warm welcome.


Now most of us have halitosis (Chronic Problem), although some have a acute problem.

Now you maybe Wondering? Has anyone been cured??

The Answer is YES.

Very few members on this board have been cured.

I will go through them later. Right now i will go through the cuases to save your time searching the board.


-Dry mouth, insufficient saliva flow.
-PND, well what i think is a "contributer" is bassiccaly access mucus
-Lactose Intolerance, The lack of "lactose" enzymes to digest lactose, which is a sugar found in milk.
-Bad Hygiene
-White coated tongue, a possible link to other causes.
-Acid Reflux, often heartburn is a symptom. Got to get it checked.
-Gum Disease, few of us have this.
-Candida, A fungus infection.


-Toxic body, cured by doing body flushes.
-Stress, Many of us encounter this in our lives and we think its a contributor.

Possible CURES.

This is the part your waiting for, eh?

Basically many people have come up with some crazy things, in the past. Only a few of them help. None really are the "cure"


So have you ever suffered Tonsil Problems???? Tonsil stones? Or Tonsilithis?

Maybe its time to remove those nasty things..

If your tonsils are the problem then You can say.. Theirs a HIGH CHANCE that you maybe cured...

Reports on how much this operations has helped is pretty large.

Although the price is very High.

Make sure your tonsils are THE PROBLEM before you go ahead with it.

Diet Change..


The thing you dont want to change. This is an extremely effective way of helping your bad breath..

Some, could say it is the "cure" but a extreme change....

So what do you have to do? You maybe thinking?

Well you will have to cut down extremely Foods HIGH in Protein and choline. This will starve the Bad Breath bacteria as they live on protien, like we live on food

Bassiccaly... It's Becoming a Veggie.... Very Happy d'oh! d'oh!

While your at it i reccomend you try a full body Detox Plan!

Yogurt, kefir. i.e PROBIOTICS.

This has been used the most from all users...

Bassiccally the logic behind this is if we plunge in a million bacteria against the bad bacteria they will fight


Like WWIII, Inside your mouth and believe me IT WORKS.
Many of us prefer a shot of it e.g PROBIOTIC DRINK. e.g

DanActive Light

With The liquid you can gargle and swish so it reaches everywere

Nasal Irrigation

This is a great way to flush away that mucous Dancing

This will help incredibly IF you suffer from PND.(POST NASAL DRIP)


1)Fill up 500 ml of LukeWarm Water.
2)Put 1 Teaspoon into the water.
3)Make sure its has a nozzle end. Then pour into nose, your head should be looking at 90 Degrees, do this for both nostrils.

Thats that.

The Tung Brush

This beautiful masterpiece was sent from the gods!!!! Partner this with VITAMIN C (Look Below) could form a possible cure.

This handy tool is easy to find in US. But may have to find it online for UK ( Just Google it.)

Vitiman c

This little vitamin will kill bad breath in high doses. Although many have reported the effect to have run out.... REMEMBER IT MUST BE SUGARLESS!!!!!!!
Some people have been cured with this combo:
Vit C + TungBRUSH + Yogurt. Interesting eh?

We have been told by many members that they have recieved the best effect from "GNC sugarless chewable Vit C cherry flavored"

Make sure take HIGH DOSES
Razz Razz Razz

These are the top 3

Now Remember!!!!



Now that you have read this i think this SUMS up pretty much the best this site has come up with.

I am relatively new so.. if anyone thinks of anything to add PM me.



THANK YOU AND WELCOME!!!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
