Ok, so ive narrowed the cause of fecal breath down to two things. 1. Something in the stomach area, internal organs. 2. Tonsils
So, my one is the tonsil cause. I have post nasal drip, because of my allergies. My sinuses are always blocked up with mucus. This mucus is deposited in my tonsils, causing tonsil stones. And these tonsil stones smell like poo, seriously. they are yellow/white and they coat my tongue with a yellow paste which adds to the smell. To figure this out I reached into my throat and touched my tonsils, i then smelled my finger. It was awful. Im getting my tonsils removed soon so that will probably cure it. In the meantime I will eat less dairy, because dairy makes poo breath so much worse. If any of you think you have poo breath and touch your tonsils then smell it and you dont smell anything, it may be because you cant smell your own breath, sometimes I cant, just try again later. Or you could be touching the wrong place in your mouth, it took me ages to find my tonsils
I will try and find a cure for the type that comes from the stomach soon. Im not even sure if there is a type that comes from the stomach, but if there is it would probably be caused be the backing up of poo, and this could be removed by detoxing, taking laxatives or drinking apple cider vinegar.
Anyway guys, I hope the removal of my tonsils cures my bad breath, it should. Ill get back to you when I have my surgery. All the best everyone.
By the way, a week before I found the cure, I said a prayer to god to help me cure it. Im not sure if it worked, but its a possibility.

I've been reading on here on and off for a few years now. I've struggled tremendously with the bb issue since the age of around 10 or so. I am now 34. Most of you on here are familiar with my story. I have bb that inhibits me enough to not take part in life the way I'd like to. I'm ashamed about it all the time and have withdrawn from a lot of social situations as a result, minimized a lot of the joy in my life and missed out on sharing my life with others in many, many ways. My love life has been nonexistent for many years because I get so stressed out trying to get close, literally and figuratively. I'm always waiting for someone to be disgusted by my breath.
I've bought lots of silly products, maintained fanatical oral hygiene regiments, worried myself sick and in the end never really found any lasting solution or reasonable response to this problem.
This week I have to say, and I almost don't believe it myself sitting here writing about it, I think I found my issue and I felt I needed to share with this community. I have been bb free, or at least bb reduced by a significant amount, for the last 2 days. There has been a flurry of activity on my part so I can't say with certainty what role any of the actions I've taken has played so I'll list them all in the interest of scientific control:
For the past 5 days I've been taking 2000 mg's of vitamin C in the mornings and evenings.
For the last two days I've taken 2 table spoons of bentonite clay detox, one in the morning and one before bed.
For the past 2 months I've been using the tongue spray and mouth wash from BreathRX 2 or 3 times a day after most meals.
For the last week I've been using a neti pot with salt water, hydrogen peroxide (5 drops) and a pinch of baking soda while in the shower in the morning.
For the last 2 days I have not eaten any meat or fish and very little dairy. I have been eating fruits, veggies, soups (made without meat or cream), baked goods (mainly sourdough bread and a few croissants). All of the fruit I've eaten has been raw and most of the veggies have been either dressed salads or cooked. I've drank a few fresh, raw juices. I eat yogurt and granola for breakfast every day including the last 5 days. I have not eaten any pasta, pizza, soy or tofu product. I have not drank any soda or hard liquor. I have consumed beer and wine. Actually a great deal of both last night...
For the past 5 days I've increased the length of time I sleep at night by 2 hours, give or take.
For the past 5 days I've added a 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil to my toothpaste (baking soda and peroxide) in the morning.
For the past 4 days I've been chewing on those Tea Tree Oil toothpicks once or twice a day.
For the past year I floss at least once a day, and usually twice or three times.
So for the past 2 days I believe I've been bb free. I am going by peoples facial expressions (my god it's so painful the way conversations always get weird when your breath's off) and by the finger test. I swab my throat and tongue as far back as possible, wait 20 seconds and smell my finger. In almost all cases there will be a dank odor which will persist well after the saliva has dried. I haven't come out and asked anyone to tell me if I have bb. It's too big an issue in my mind and heart to discuss it with people 99.9% of the time. I really feel responsible for and ashamed about the condition. In all these years I've never gotten even close to accepting it as part of who I am or whatever... I do feel the finger swab test is kind of reliable. Maybe I'm wrong.
In any case, I haven't been able to detect much odor via the swab method since giving up meat. It is a pretty dramatic change. In addition to appearing to have had an effect of my breath, or at least the smell of my saliva on my finger, not consuming meat has given me a much lighter feeling in my body and an increased general sense of well being. I almost feel as though a fairly significant anxiety has been relieved...It's weird. I also haven't felt run down or spent at the end of the day, or even in the middle of the day, the way I often can.
Historically I am a big carnivore and a big eater in general. I love to eat. I'm not overweight and I exercise, but I eat quite a bit every day. It's not hard for me to eat 4 meals a day, all containing meat, bread, dairy. It is more unusual for me to consume lots of fruits and veggies in any given meal or day. I will usually eat a salad, or a side dish of vegetables in addition to a meat based item at the center of a meal and comprising the largest part of the meal. I probably consume 95% animal protein to 5% fish or shellfish protein over the course of any given week, month, year.
My tongue still turns white as the day proceeds unless I brush and scrap it.
My floss does not seem to have any odor after use since the morning after the first night I didn't eat any meat at dinner.
This morning, the 3rd full day without meat I woke up and via the finger swab method (fs) I can't detect any odor. I have never had this experience in my entire life. Generally, I would say my morning breath is disastrously pungeant. It's always occurred to me as alarmingly unhealthy, more than just run of the mill morning breath. I can smell it myself without doing anything more than just breathing. Today, nothing. Literally nothing.
I have to say, I LOVE eating meat. I crave meat even when it's a part of my diet. That being said, if I can be free from this condition by eliminating meat from my diet, I would gladly go the rest of my life as a vegetarian. I have been so desperate to find a solution for so long. I really can't believe that this seems to be working. I'm not overjoyed. I'm scared that I'm wrong or that this wont last...
I wanted to share this information with everyone on here. I fully recognize that this may be a temporary solution or that I could be experiencing totally random relieve from bb that will end just as quickly as it started without another change in diet or routine, but I'm hoping this is the chance I've been waiting for. I kind of feel like meat has been poisoning me for a very long time. The change in the smell of my saliva is so dramatic, even while consuming alcohol, that I am stunned!
I hope this is helpful to someone else. This forum has been a valuable resource for me and helped to keep me motivated to help myself, take control of this problem and search for a solution. I feel deeply indebted to Jimi and all of you who post on here for creating a forum for all of us who suffer with this issue to speak freely and gain insight and information from one another. I feel that with enough information all of us can be free from this affliction and establish the personal connections we so badly need.
I will return with updates

Hello people, i have been suffering with persistent bad breath for 20 years. Over the christmas holiday i tried something new for a mouthwash, Canadian club whiskey. Just to describe my routine, tongue scraper, electric toothbrush, kforce toothpaste, and canadian club whiskey. I saturate my tongue with a tiny baster, i dip my toothbrush in the whiskey and brush my teeth and tongue, i gargle with the whiskey to reach the back of my throat. I then brush my teeth with the kforce toothpaste, i use the kforce just because i have some left over but i want to try this with over the counter toothpaste. i spend alot of time focussing on my tongue, i rinse my mouth out good with water, through out. I like the results im getting. If someone could try it and tell me what they think that would be great.

I was struggling with bad breath, and I think I found the answer. The problem with me was that I could not tell if I had a bad breath, and it was always hard to find honest feedback, and I think it got mental too...
I thought I had candida at first, but that was not it. Then I thought it was acid reflux. I did have acid reflux too, but while trying to fix the bad breath problem, I also fixed the acid relfux. Because I am sure acid just made my breath so much worse. Finally I found out that I always have post nasal drip. Or I have lived with post nasal drip all my life, or since I was a kid. To me it was a normal activity. One day I started spiting without any reason and something was not right with my spit. Finally I went to a doctor and told him my symptoms, and he told me I have sinus problems. After a cat scan he found a maxillary cyst - left.
I figured because of the cyst, my sinus is trying to kill the unwanted cyst bacteria and stuff. So my sinus produce extra extra mucus in order to kill the cyst. But the cyst was immune to my natural strength. And the extra extra mucus was draining in my stomach, but the stomach does not like all that extra mucus, and through acid back to my throat.
So then I come back to America, and I see a doctor for the cyst. Thinking that if I get rid of the cyst, bad breath is cured. To cure the cyst I think I need good insurance for a operation. So the doctor here gave me some strong liquid antibiotic which cost me around $120 x 3, and I also owe them another $650 for my three appointments... anyways, how did I cure my bad breath problem? I was thinking how can I clean my sinuses like I brush my teeth, every day at least once a day, and possibly kills my cyst. One day I went to CVC and just by looking around I saw a neti pot. I bought a generic brand for like $17. The first time I used it I felt different. And I clean my sinuses with the neti pot every day. And there is no more acid reflux, there is no more tongue coating, and tongue scraping, or when I scrape my tongue with my teeth, there is nothing, and there is less phobia, less and less feeling of having bad breath.
hope this helps

I can relate to all of the comments so well. When I was five my mom took me to the dentist, and I was so afraid (actually screamed loudly) that I didn't go back until high school. I have not missed a dentist appointment in the last 20 years. I have been under the care of a periodontist, a general dentist, an oral surgeon and a couple of other specialists. Most recently, I spent nearly $6000.00 for extractions and implants which were supposed to help my bad breath problem. I have tried probiotics, numerous mouth washes, mints, pills, even chlorophyll, and honestly I haven't seen any improvement. I work with Jr. High children and they complain about how bad the room smells. I know that it is my breath. It has been that way for as long as I can remember. My husband doesn't believe me, because it is worse when I talk long and loudly so that everyone in the room can hear me. Also, I have learned not to talk directly to my husband (strange, I know). Yesterday, a student told me that a friend of hers from another school (that I worked at briefly) told her that I "stunk up" the whole room. I was really devastated. Even though she told me privately, I could barely get through the rest of the class. It is really hard to do my job to the best of my ability because I try to keep my distance from students, yet still do the best that I can for them. I have always been a good teacher, but as I approach my senior years, my reputation is becoming that of a "stinky old teacher" and that's the way I am begining to feel. This bad breath problem drains so much emotional energy that it is really aging me. It helps a little to know that others have this same problem. I am going on a long plane trip and I am so afraid that I will sit between passengers and my mouth odor will offend them. With a window seat, I can at least face the window. On the econo tour, I wasn't able to request a seat, People who are not aware that these extreme breath problems exist think it's all a joke. I visited a friend's very small church. That Sunday, I had eaten so many mints that they compounded the problem. I heard a couple of people talking and laughing about it how I was smelling up the room afterwards. When I spoke with the minister, she even placed her hand to her nose. Sometimes, I don't know how I will continue to go on. I have people who depend on me for financial and emotional support. I can't afford to give up. Prayer helps. If you are Christians, please pray for me to be able to continue to live. I am writing this through tears; I am so tired. This mouth odor problem prevents me from becoming the complete person that I should be. It affects every aspect of my life. If you are one who thinks this is a joke, please don't post any mean-spirited comments suggesting that I do terrible things. Again, please pray for me.

I have been viewing this site for awhile now, but this is my first time every posting anything. Ive been going threw the same thing as many of u have. People rubbin their nose when I talk. Its so mind boggelin because I dont know whether its because of my breath or maybe its their sinuses. No one ever said that I have bb, but I just no something isnt right. This has been goin on for 3 years now and its changed my social life in a big way, but for the most part I remain positive.

I had an interview yesterday and to me ,there were obvious signs that the interviewer was reacting to my BB with nose rubs,moving back and coughs..etc. i had a bad,weird dream about my halitosis/halitophbia last night. Can't remember all of it ,but alot of people from my past were saying they smelled my BB all along and were quiet about it. In the dream I was in school or something and I was finally able to ask people about my bb . Well ,people were saying how bad it always was and could not stand it for long. Everyone knew for years and years about my famous BB and it was Not Funny to them . Some people were respectful and tried to understand but still repulsed . Some were disgusted and thought i was diseased in some way ,and gave the old bs remedies from afar "brush your 4uking mouth! it stinks up the whole place !"
My Dad was there . He was trying his best to help , having the same old ideas about brushing and that ,wasnt much help but very emotionally supportive though . The whole day I was basically begging for answers or help with my bb at this place for school or work or wutever it was. No nurses or doctors helped . As the dream went on ,more people knew that the stink was coming from me , I started to get that sick paranoid feeling . Like asking for sympathy or help but people are to afraid to come near because they don't want to be associated with one so gross i guess. In the end of the dream ,Some older wiser people had put on paper masks .When I looked around ,everybody was wearing them =/ . I wanted to cry, it was like the only way to fix it in everyones mind . The only solution ? I kept my mouth closed and had to humble if someone asked my anything .
I woke up feeling so bad and anxious . I often have had Zombie themed dreams since childhood, this was really no exception but More based on reality and not really abstract.
I've been back on the high raw fruit diet ,and i know it helps at least a bit. I really just want at least 1 person that I can be honest with about this BB,that will 4uk!ng be honest with me too. I understand how its hard for a person to be put in that spot though ,but its So Much harder for us to be in limbo about whats is really going on with out BB.
Its worse than the bb itself to not know and Worry. Someone could make a Billion dollar to invent a Real working pocket halimeter . We would finally know what works or doesn't . Meantime ,we worry that others smell us.
