Bad Breath Smell Coming From Stomach

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How to determine where bad breath is coming from?
    How can you tell if bad breath is coming from either the stomach, tongue, teeth or gums?

    My dentist says that my teeth and gums are fine, but my gums are a really dull colour and after i eat something sugary, i feel the plaque on my teeth.
    I get bad breath all the time. even after brushing my teeth and tongue, flossing and using mouthwash.

    • ANSWER:
      This question has been answered by scientist at the School of Dental Medicine in New York. They showed that bad breath is caused by a bacteria (Solobacterium moorei) on the tongue. This bacteria looks white and can be seen on the back of the tongue. If you have a white tongue you have bad breath. Mints, gum, mouthwash, toothpaste will cover up bad breath for a short time. But to get rid of bad breath you must clean the tongue with a tongue cleaner. I use OraBrush tongue cleaner. There is also a way to smell your own bad breath.

  4. QUESTION:
    How can you tell if bad breath is coming from the mouth or stomach?
    ok i have constant bad breath but i dont know if it's because of my mouth or my stomach. Is there any way to distinguish bad breath from mouth and stomach? oh and please dont say go to dentist/doctor i plan to go to one anyways but before i do i just wanna know where its coming from it would be nice if i didnt have to go to both

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the type of food or drink, if it's something sugary then it's probably letting bacteria grow in your mouth that cause an unpleasant smell, so just brushing, flossing, maybe some mouth wash should work. Other foods, and drinks like: garlic, onions, and beer, are absorbed into the blood and are vaporised in the lungs, and for those there is nothing that can be done other than masking the smell with gum or something.

  5. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of this smell?
    I havn't got bad breath but it is like a bad smell is coming right up from my stomach. It has been like this for a couple days now and it is really gross. I have brushed my teeth over and over it does nothing! ive eaten different food including quite a strong curry but it hasn't changed the smell. Could it be a stomach bug or something? how do I get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you tried flossing because it may be food that is stuck in between your teeth ... brushing doesnt always get rid of bad smells you have to floss too.

  6. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

  7. QUESTION:
    What type of food beside garlic and onion causes bad breath?
    I do know there are lots of factor causing bad breath.
    I want to know specifically about certain food, fruits or vegetables we should avoid for this reason... at least for certain occasion!

    • ANSWER:
      Your question suggests that you want to cure or keep from having bad breath by choosing certain foods. This will help cure bad breath but it is not the real cause of your bad breath. The primary cause of bad breath is the bacteria on your tongue, especially the back one-third of your tongue. Look at your tongue in the mirror for some white stuff. This is the bacteria and this material must be removed to keep you from having bad breath. When you eat a smelly food, such as garlic, some of the material stays on your tongue and produces bad breath. Cleaning your tongue will reduce your bad breath from the garlic food. Most people think the garlic smell comes from your stomach but it actually comes from some of the garlic staying on your tongue.
      So, brush and floss your teeth and then clean your tongue, specifically the back one-third and you will not have bad breath. I use OraBrush tongue cleaner because it is designed to clean the back of the tongue. My wife tells me I have kissing sweet breath. It works for me.

  8. QUESTION:
    How do you tell someone that their breath smells?
    My co-worker's breath smells like a pile of $hit. It makes me sick to my stomach when he speaks to me. Just vile. I can't take it anymore. How can I let him know that he is offensive without offending him? Again, it's really bad. Like turds left in the toilet for days.

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with Jessie, when you see him coming your way, about to talk to you, BAM! You bring that mint/gum out and take one and be like: Oh, hey. What's up? *and offer them the mint/gum with your hand*

      If he refuses, then plan B would probably have to be SkullandBone's idea. Leave an anonymous note on his desk or whatever. Make it friendly and leave some advice like: you might want to try Eclipse, they're really good for that! (<-- not that I know, just an example!)

      Good Luck!

    No post-nasal drip.::)

    • ANSWER:
      Oh, I read that book "cleanse and purify thyself", very interesting. It would be great to try one day, but I think that a good diet will accomplish the same thing, although more slowly over a longer period of time. Same with clogged arteries -- once you start eating better, your body will do it's job and get rid of that stuff.

      I found that garlic, onion, etc. do not really affect my breath as far as "Ew, yuck your breath stinks." I find bad breath is mostly caused by improper digestion. It comes from the gut. sure, not brushing one's teeth will contribute, but it's really mostly the smell from the gut. Whether it be meat and junk food clogging one's system, or eating things together that promote indigestion, such as mixing fruit with other foods.

      Many people use wheat grass juice for helping to cleanse one's digestion. Well, there are so many things that do this.

  11. QUESTION:
    What can be a possible reason for & solution to bad breath if it persists inspite of regular brushing.?
    one of my family members had a tooth problem few years back. However now he is very particular about regular brushing after meals, using mouthwashes etc. I dont find anything wrong with his eating habits as well but he does have stomach problems at times. Inspite of his discipline, his breath starts smelling after sometime of brushing. Please suggest what is the reason for it & what can be done to solve this problem.

    • ANSWER:
      You asked the right questions. Some of the conditions that trigger bad breath include: a dry mouth, thick saliva, excess mucus in the throat, post nasal drip, a high-protein diet, smoking, alcohol (which could be found in your mouthwash), hormonal changes, medications which have dry mouth as a side-effect, history of diabetes, special types of diets that dry your mouth (i.e. The Atkins diet) and last but not the least important, excessive use of "old-fashioned" oral products (containing alcohol, sodium lauryl suflate SLS,. and saccharin). It does NOT come from the stomach. It comes from the mouth.

      Let me tell you why alcohol in mouthwashes is bad for you. it can actually make your breath smell worse, because it is a drying agent. A dry mouth is the leading cause of bad breath. This is because that bacteria that gives off the foul odor is anaerobic (thrives best in places that have little or no oxygen). SLS is a HARSH detergent in toothpastes that can cause canker sores. Saccharin is a sugar that actually FEEDS the odorous bacteria.

      What I've used to remove my bad breath forever is Therabreath. It doesn't contain alcohol, SLS or saccharin, is all natural and has aloe vera. What it does is oxidize the mouth and removes and prevents the growth of anaerobic bacteria. What I do is brush for two minutes, rinse with Therabreath oral rinse, floss and rinse again. It has worked wonders for my breath. I no longer have a bitter, metallic taste in my mouth. If your breath is that bad, I suggest Therabreath PLUS. I also suggest that you carry Therabreath gum or breath strips for on-the-go freshness.

      Good luck and I hope this helps. Let me know what happens!

  12. QUESTION:
    How come my breath smells bad?
    Its been smelling bad for quiet a while. I brush three times a day and dont eat that much food that could cause the smell. Could it be that there is something in my throat because i have not thrown up for a very long time. Can you also give me some tips on how i can make it smell better. Right now i just chew gum to cover it up.

    • ANSWER:
      you must first determine the cause of bad breath. bad breath can be caused by a lot of things like gum disease, dry mouth, sinusitis, cavities, medications, stomach related illness and eating a garlicky meal. bad breath treatments depends on the cause of it.

      you should also make it a habit to properly brush and floss teeth every after meal to help remove food debris that can rot and can cause the mouth to become smelly.

      keep the mouth hydrated and salivated by drinking loads of water. water have a lot of health benefits for the whole body.

  13. QUESTION:
    How can I tell my boyfriend he has offensive breath and sometimes smells like an "old man" ?
    My boyfriend, who I've dated for nearly 3 years has bad breath and a funky odor my sister refers to as an "old man smell". I have gotten up the guts to tell him that he has bad breath and purchased a very good mouth rinse for him. He surprisingly took it very well when I told him he needs the rinse, but doesn't continuously use it. I always try to have a pack of gum or mints handy to offer to him when I see him...but that doesn't even mask it! I think it's his diet (he eats high fat foods and LOTS of meat). My family has made comments to me about it and I just don't even want to be close up sometimes. He is a professional and very smart. It's really starting to get old..smelling LOL!

    • ANSWER:
      somtimes it has to do with the stomach where old food smells come up from the stomach to the mouth and out..i know its gross but its true i dont know the name of the condition but you can try looking up some conditions

  14. QUESTION:
    How can i tell a prospective partner that he has a bad breath?
    He is sweet and calm. I have tried saying it indirectly by not kissing and not allowing him to kiss me. He seems crazy about me but i cant have a relationship with him unless he sorts it out. But he has still not got the clue. How do i say it directly without offending him. It is very very bad.

    • ANSWER:
      Bad breath can be caused by any number of things and not all of them can be treated by brushing teeth, scraping tongue, using mouthwash. Bad breath can sometimes come up from the lungs (especially if they are smokers), or from the stomach. It's also very common for people who have sinus conditions to have regular post nasal drip and that can be absolutely foul smelling. If he's a prospective partner, you should be able to just sit and talk with him about it. I know if it was me, I'd certainly want to know. If it is something like post nasal drip from his sinuses, he's probably always had it so he doesn't know any different.
      Perhaps a visit with the doctor would help to rule out any medical reason that could be causing it. If it is sinuses, suggest he try using a Neti Pot....you can get them at your local pharmacy or health/vitamin shop. Flushing the nasal cavity out on a regular basis with warm salt water can make a HUGE difference.

  15. QUESTION:
    Why does my breath smell even after brushing?
    Every morning, I eat breakfast, so I already have the morning breath - plus the added on food... Then I brush my teeth thoroughly, and yet, even after all the brushing, the scent of the food and the morning breath is still there. Why does it linger? I thought I was brushing well enough.

    • ANSWER:
      My mother is a doctor, she tells me that breath does not come from the mouth or teeth, it comes from the stomach. The food you eat comes out through breath and the smell of it digesting is what causes bad breath. Not brushing your teeth. You should eat healthy food and nothing with strong smell/taste. Eat a lot of fruit and vegetables.

      **edit- Everyone is saying, mouth wash, NO! it doesn't help because mouthwash kills as well as bad germs, good germs, which help protect against bad germs. This may get you very sick.

  16. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of bad breath when i wake up in the morning?
    I have terrible breath in the morning like just when I wake up (not to gross out anyone or anything) haha but i know brushing my teeth solves it, but is there anything i can do to stop even having bad breath in the morning?
    thanks for answerss =)

    • ANSWER:
      This is your lucky day.

      I have always been the kind of girl who searches for answers. I search for my own answers because I learned long ago that doctors and experts give the same advice about things, but rarely tell you simple answers that work.

      Of course you must floss at least once a day and brush your teeth, gums and tongue at least twice a day. Gargling with mouthwash is an added bonus and keeps germs away. Also try to brush after your meals and drink plenty of liquids throughout the day, so your mouth does not become too dry, avoiding a lot of sugary drinks if you can. Most people are dehydrated. The body needs a lot of water to digest your food and remove toxins. Water flushes the system.

      After that, a lot of bad breath comes from your stomach, especially if you eat a lot of meat/protein. Meat releases a gas, I think sulphur. Eggs do too. Eating a diet high in protein will give you bad breath, so balance it out with some carbohydrates, like a dinner roll or slice of bread.

      Next, my greatest secret:

      Go to a health food store or the Vitamin Shoppe and purchase chlorophyll tablets. The Vitamin Shoppe has some in 50 mg softgel tabs. There are 90 softgels per bottle, and I usually order 4 bottles at a time. I think they cost approximately each. Start taking around 2 tabs per day. Your feces will certainly turn green, but your breath will be great. I take mine before I eat in the morning. Chlorophyll acts as an "internal" deodorant. It goes through your gut and gets rid of body odors. If you make it a regular part of your diet, you won't worry too much if you accidently "pass gas" or have a "bowel movement" at a friend's house. It won't smell too strong. And when you wake in the morning, your breath will no longer be a problem.

      I'm a health nut so I also sometimes take a super green foods tablet that also contains chlorophyll.

      Another thing I do before I go to a dentist is I floss and brush my teeth first and then drink hot lemonade. I squeeze one or two fresh lemons into a small mug and add water and a lot of sugar/sweetener to it. It should be very concentrated. Then I put the mug in the microwave and drink it like hot tea. Sometimes I transfer it into a thermal mug and drink it on the way to the dentist.

      It works every time. When I see a dentist, my breath is always fresh and sweet. When the hygienist buffs my teeth after a cleaning, she NEVER ever uses the minty paste. She uses the fruity one because my breath is already very fresh.

      Try it. I'm sure you and your loved ones will like the change.

  17. QUESTION:
    Can someone help with a bad breath problem?
    People, I have had bad breath for 2 years now, and I don't know what to do. My teeth are white, and I brush 2-3 times a day, no exceptions! Why do I keep having bad breath? I just went to the dentist for a cleaning last week, and I still have it. What can I do? I can't stand it anymore!
    And I brush my tongue as well so I don't know what it is!

    • ANSWER:
      Bad breath does not always have to do with brushing teeth and flossing.

      The smell sometimes comes from the acid from the stomach, runny nose-if you don't blow your nose and swallow it as you sniff, the mucus causes the smell, could be poor diet.

      Tonsil cysts or Tonsillitis Patients may have post nasal problems often report coughing up small condensed stones that smell awful. These tonsil stones are made from compressed Sulphur compounds, mucous, and bacteria.

      Other Bad Breath Reasons the decay of unseen periodontal problems which can be revealed by X-ray.

  18. QUESTION:
    What is causing my dog to smell so bad?
    I have a two/three-year-old white German Shepherd female. She's spayed, current on shots and has no health conditions that we know of. Recently, she started smelling extremely bad, usually after laying down for awhile, and this isn't usual dog order. She will be laying seven feet away from me and I will be overwhelmed with a horrible almost stale/moldy feet smell. (I kind of reminds me of rotten fritos chips.) We gave her a thorough bathing but the smell has been coming back. The thing is, it isn't always there, like it only seems to come after she's been lying down for awhile. I'm fairly sure it isn't gas, it smells nothing like that, and she has been on the same diet for over a year but I haven't been able to figure out what's making her smell so bad. Any ideas on whats causing this or tips on how to eliminate this horrible odor?
    She's not an outdoor dog at all, and so far, I haven't found anything dead or smelly in my backyard. I hadn't thought of an ear infection, but I will definately look into that. Thank you so much :)

    • ANSWER:
      check her breath...her teeth might be bad or it may be stomach problems
      lastly... find the pile of rotting fish she has been rolling in,
      a vet check might be the best

  19. QUESTION:
    Does burping actually rid you of bad breath?
    I notice sometimes when I drink water, I just start burping and the smell of the food I recently ate (or HAVE eaten) gets released out of the breath; it's usually a bad smell and lasts for about 2 seconds. So I was actually wondering if maybe drinking water and burping occasionally from it would actually rid the bad smell from my mouth?

    • ANSWER:
      lol Burping is the act of releasing air that is trapped in your stomach. It has nothing to do with your breath. For instance, it is possible to have an upset stomach and smelly burps no matter how much you have brushed your teeth or vice versa.

      Burps come from your stomach.

      Breath comes from your mouth.

  20. QUESTION:
    Does anybody know why my daughter burps smell like rotten eggs?
    My daughter came home from school today with a stomach ache.And she burp in the car and it smell like rotten eggs.Is there a reason why they smell like this?

    • ANSWER:
      It could be from the contents in her stomach! This can also cause bad breath too.

      The body does produce sulfur in the digestive/gastrointestinal tract. Sulfur smells just like rotten eggs. It could be a sign of an allergy to a certain type of food.

      Does she have any other side effects like stomach cramps, constipation, loose bowel movements, etc? I would go to a dr and have allergy tests down. I don't think it's anything to panic over but it's better to be safe than sorry.

      Best wishes to you and your little girl~~~ <3

  21. QUESTION:
    How do i get the smell of smoke off me?
    I smoke cigarettes and im 17 but i somehow dont want my parents to learn about it. so is there any way that i can reduce the smell of cigarette smoke off me?
    I dont want answers such like STOP SMOKING! this doesnt help me at all

    • ANSWER:
      In Japan there is a spray for your clothes that can not only reduce but really take off any smells. Not only for smoke-smells but all other bad smells from the clothes you have worn.

      It used for a person who usually wears a suits or a jacket. It is also used even on curtains. Any linens.

      And also there is a tablet like candy...not really a candy...a jelly like tablet that you can swallow to eliminate the fowl smell from your breath.

      Many uses this kind of tablet after eating Japanese foods that afterwards the smells remains in their mouth even the next morning even you have brush your teeth.

      The bad smells usually comes inside the stomach and not in the mouth. That is why it is swallowed and not chewed.

      Both products effectiveness is fast. Nobody will say you had a smoke.

      I am also a smoker and my boyfriend is a non smoking guy. So I do not like him to say that I do not smell good so I used these products.

      I think this products are also sold in the Philippines and many other countries. I just do not know the names of the brand there where you live.

      These kind of products are sold in Japan Pharmacies and convenient stores.
      Check to your nearest Pharmacy and ask if there is one.

      It is not easy to stop smoking. Easy to say only ...." stop smoking". I am not advicing you to stop smoking because your question is not on how to stop smoking. I am a smoker too and I do not intend to stop either.

  22. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to deal with motion sickness?
    I am terrible when it comes to motion sickness. I can't even hop on a swing, without feeling like I need to vomit.
    I also have a fear of vomiting, which scares me to death.
    I am 15. We are going to an amusement park type thing today and there are roller coasters and spinning rides, that look heaps fun. But I can't go on it because I am terrified of vomiting.
    What should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Pick the right seat. If possible, sit in an area with the smoothest ride, where motion is least likely to be felt in the first place. When making a plane reservation, ask for an aisle seat over a wing. On a train, opt for a car toward the front. Sit in the front seat of an automobile. And on a ship, ask for a cabin toward the center of the vessel.

      Avoid standing. The last thing you need when you're trying to keep your stomach settled is to be tossed around during the trip.

      Face forward. Choose a seat that faces in the direction you are traveling, so that the forward motion your body feels will match what you see.

      Minimize head movements. Try to avoid sudden movements of your head, which can aggravate motion sickness.

      Stay up. While you may be tempted to go below when you're feeling queasy on a boat, stay on deck as much as possible, so your eyes can confirm the movement that your body is feeling.

      Look off into the distance. Not to daydream, but to focus on a steady point away from the rocky boat, plane, or car. If there isn't a tree or barn or other specific object in the distance to focus on, stare out at the horizon, where the sky meets the earth (or water). Again, this will allow your eyes to see that you are moving -- to match the movement your body feels -- without making you dizzy, the way that watching telephone poles or mile markers whizzing by can make you feel.

      Leave your reading at home. If you read in a car, your eyes stay fixed on a stationery object, yet your body feels the motion of the car -- again setting up that sensory contradiction. Instead, focus on the road in front of you or at a distant object so all your senses can confirm that you are on the move.

      Volunteer to drive. Drivers are so busy watching the road that they're less apt to get carsick.

      Eat a little or don't eat at all. Sometimes eating helps, sometimes it doesn't. Experiment to see what works for you. About an hour before you leave, eat some plain crackers or a piece of bread or toast. If it makes you feel worse, don't eat next time -- keep your stomach calm and empty, in case you should start to get nauseated.

      Avoid heavy foods and odors. The smell of spicy or greasy foods and strong odors can prompt motion sickness before or during a trip. So skip the stop at the roadside diner.

      Say no to alcohol. Avoid alcoholic beverages before and during a trip. It can worsen motion sickness.

      Stay calm, cool, and collected. Sometimes, just the thought of getting sick can make you sick. The same goes for those who are anxious about what they're about to do, like flying in a plane or riding in a boat. Try to stay as calm and relaxed as possible. Take a few deep breaths, and tell yourself that you will not get sick.

      Try over-the-counter remedies. Antihistamines, such as Dramamine, Bonine, and Marezine, should be taken at least an hour before the trip for maximum effectiveness. Always check the label for warnings and possible side effects, such as drowsiness or blurred vision, and take necessary precautions, such as not driving a car.

      Stay away from others who are sick. The power of suggestion is very strong, especially if you have a tendency to get a bit "green" yourself. As callous as it may sound, let someone with a sturdier stomach tend to the sick; you should be looking at the horizon or at another steady point in the distance.

  25. QUESTION:
    Any good home remedies for morning sickness?
    My wife has morning sickness bad. We have tried everything so want that it not common that we have not tried.

    • ANSWER:
      Each woman is different where morning sickness cures are concerned. What works for one, may or many not work for another. Below you will find ideas which you can try:

      * Vitamin B6 - 50 mg. daily. Vitamin B6 has been scientifically shown to help morning sickness. You can find Vitamin B6 at your local drugstore or health food store. Just recently, companies have started to incorporate therapeutic doses of Vitamin B6 into their products to help you cure your morning sickness.

      * Ginger in capsules form 250 mg. three times daily can be beneficial. Ginger has long been associated with alleviating nausea. You can also get the benefit of using ginger by chewing on crystallized ginger or sucking on ginger hard candies.

      * Silly as it sounds, carry a handkerchief with a few drops of a non nausea causing essential oil (lemon for example) in it and breath through it if you can't get away from the smell that is bothering you.

      * Avoid greasy or spicy foods as they often cause nausea or heartburn.

      * Eat what you want when you want it. Your cravings will not lead you the wrong way.

      * Have frequent protein snacks. (Low fat meats and seafood, nuts, eggs and beans are high protein.)

      * Eat smaller meals every two hours or so.

      * Eating something salty before a meal can help you "make it through" a meal.

      * Do not drink fluids with your meals.

      * Non caffeinated teas like peppermint and ginger can help came nausea.

      * Drink small amounts of fluids regularly though out the day to avoid dehydration.

      * Do not skip meals if you can help it.

      * Try taking your prenatal vitamins later in the day. Pregnancy Plus prenatal vitamins are smaller in size and are less likely to upset your stomach. You may also want to consider taking your prenatal vitamin at night before you go to bed to give it a chance to be absorbed overnight.

      * Avoid spicy and fried food - both eating and smelling it can increase your nausea.

      * Cold food may have less nausea inducing smells associated with them.

  26. QUESTION:
    What can cause REALLY BAD breath aside from a germy mouth?
    Okay, so my breath really stinks sometimes, and it's not because i haven't brushed... i always brush my teeth, tongue, the works. I do have my tonsils but they look pink, not white or bumpy. I don't smoke, i don't eat garlic or onions. It stinks so bad that people can smell it even with my mouth closed, apparently the air that comes out of my nostrils smells too.
    I think it's something in my stomach, cause it does feel a little acid sometimes, but at others i don't even feel it and people tell me i smell! Also, i don't stink all the time. I don't have rotten teeth or cavities. What could be causing this? What can i do to get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      can be caused by the contents of your gastric system
      hyperacidity
      or some kind of subacute infection in your GI tract
      there are medications you can take to get rid of the problem
      you might want to discuss it with your doctor
      also you might have a sinus problem

  27. QUESTION:
    I kissed a girl that doesn't drink with alot of alcohol on my breath, do you think it bothered her ?
    I don't think she was real passionate about the kiss, and it's probably because the beer was too strong on my breath.

    To me my breath was fine, but to anyone out there that has kissed someone after they've downed about 15 cans of Budweiser.

    Tell me if you like it, or not ...
    Common Sense: are you serious - wow ...

    Lol
    trixibel: I already had sex with her, you dirty witch.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, beer breath smells and tastes awful. You have to remember that bad breath comes partially from your mouth and partially from your stomach. This is why someone can eat garlic, brush their teeth, then still have garlicky breath. Then it just smells like hot toothpaste and garlic mixed together... gross. Anyway, about the beer... the beer mixes with your stomach acids and the acids begin to digest the yeast, hops, etc. that are in the beer and it creates a nasty smell. It smells very faintly of vomit, even though the person hasn't vomited. So yes, I'm quite sure it bothered her.

  28. QUESTION:
    How can I stop my breath from smelling like fecal matter?
    My wife says she thinks its coming from my stomach. I brush my teeth 3 times a day and floss almost every day and use a mouthwash. Can it be my diet? Are there any home remidies I can use...........Please help!!

    • ANSWER:
      I eat alotta food during the day and never have time to brush cuz im always busy at school or doing other things. So what i do is brush in da morning and at night. Secret is use therabreath. It is the best thing to cure any bad breath. If its from da stomach than u need to see the doctor. But if you are having lets say gingivties, haletosis, or ur breath just always smelled likedirty shoes. Then therebreath will work for you. Trust me. A bottle of therabreath toothpaste cost .00 and its worth it. You also need the therabreath mouth rinse-- .00.. All worth the money, if you dont want your breath to stink. Fresh breath 24 hours a day if u use therabreath. Goodluck.

  29. QUESTION:
    How to calm yourself wen having an anxiety attack?
    Hi, I'm having a really bad anxiety attack and I ca't calm down, It's kinda hard to breathe and my heart is racing and my stomach is hurting so much and this makes me freak out even more. Any tips on how to calm down other than taking deep breaths? (I already tried and it's not working) Thank you so much I really appreciate it.

    • ANSWER:
      It is a skill like anything else and it will take you some time (unfortunately) to really gain control of yourself using a variety of techniques and finding what feels comfortable for you.

      Buy this book (should be easy to find): "Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Workbook." http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/books/Dialectical-Behavior-Therapy-Skills-Workbook-Brantley-Marra-McKay/9781572245136-item.html?cookieCheck=1

      You may think this is BS, but google "Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Anxiety" or something like that and you should see that many therapists choose this approach either as the primary treatment or as an adjunct to other methods.

      Basically this book is a set of exercises to help you better control yourself and improve your life so you are more functional and more capable... therefore less likely to have an attack. It works progressively however, starting in the first chapter with coping strategies for an immediate situation.

      Sometimes attacks are sudden, out of nowhere and full-blown (unavoidable), other times they have some early warning signs. Whenever you get the early warning sign one you can intervene (calmly) and redirect your thoughts. Both instances usually involve the breathing exercise.

      Here are two good ones from the book:

      (1) spend some time (maybe 5 minutes each day as a relaxation tool) and create a serene environment in your mind with some soft subtle sounds, light, breeze, smells.. very subtle calming "things" to entertain your senses. For example, imagine a slightly cool crisp cave with high arching roof and a small trickling stream on one side and a big rock right in the centre. You are sitting on the rock slowly taking in the sounds of the cave, then the feel of the temperature, then the quality of the air... one by one, slowly. Above the rock is a small hole in the roof of the cave. As you sit on the rock with your eyes closed, sunlight begins to shine its rays down upon you. First on the top of your head... feel the suns warmth... then slowly down the sides of your head, neck and top of your shoulders.. feel the suns rays as the slowly warm your body.

      You do this regularly as a calming exercise so that it becomes familiar to you. If you have some warning signs come on, close your eyes, take some relaxing breaths, slow your thoughts down and begin to slowly work through this exercise. Feel how the sun relaxes your muscles, feel how the tension is relieve as the sun touches upon each part of your body in this serene environment with its subtle senses...

      This is a technique from that book. Others include understanding what you find most important in life... lots of good exercises.

      I hope this helps, best of luck :)

  30. QUESTION:
    How long should it take for a ear infection to clear?
    My son is 2 months and he started on Amoxicillin on saturday. He gets it 3 times a day, how long should it take to start to work? He still has stuff coming out of his ears and it still smells. Should I bring him back in or wait for the full week of being on the Amoxicillin?

    • ANSWER:
      Your son is too young for this right now but I wish my sister in law had known about the following before her son went through years of middle ear infections. Again at two months he is too little. Ask your doctor about this. I found out about it from my dentist at a teeth cleaning and I am so grateful to her. Please pass on to other mommies. I hope this can help.
      Xylitol and Ear, Nose and Throat Infections

      Recurring middle ear infections pose a great health threat to children. Tubes are often inserted into the ear drum in children with these recurring infections to reduce the fluid that is attempting to wash out the infection from the middle ear. While this procedure sometimes helps to reduce the frequency of infections, it is also designed to help with hearing.

      Language, a critical part of learning, is built by auditory input during the first two years of life--the same period when ear infections are most common. If this input is dampened by infection or fluid in the middle ear during this important period, it can cause learning problems. One researcher demonstrated that even when properly treated, recurrent middle ear infections during the first two years result in significant impairment in reading ability up to the age of nine.7 Another study followed children longer and showed significant learning and social problems extending up to age eighteen.8

      One of xylitol's versatile benefits is its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause middle ear infections in young children. In two recent studies involving over 1,000 children, xylitol-flavoured chewing gum was found to reduce the incidence of middle ear infections by 40 per cent, significantly decreasing ongoing middle ear complications and the need for antibiotics.

      Regularly washing the nose with a spray containing xylitol decreases the number of harmful bacteria and stimulates normal defensive washing of this area. A clean nose reduces problems with allergies and asthma that originate from nasal irritants and pollutants. Current research shows how bacteria attach to cells in the body, causing infection. Some sugars like xylitol are known to be able to interfere with this binding, blocking the attachment of the major infection-causing bacteria that live in the nose. Dr Lon Jones, a physician in Plainsview, Texas, reported that the use of a xylitol nasal spray in his practice prevented 93 per cent of ear infections and resulted in comparable reductions in sinus infections, allergies and asthma.9

      Xylitol has been shown to be effective in inhibiting Candida albicans, a serious systemic yeast problem, and other harmful gut bacteria including H. pylori, implicated in periodontal disease, bad breath, gastric and duodenal ulcers and even stomach cancer.

  31. QUESTION:
    My teeth are gross looking in the morning?
    I brush twice a day, floss once a day and I use mouthwash once a day. But in the mornings my teeth appear to be more yellow. I mean I don't have perfect teeth. They are kinda crooked and they aren't super white to begin with but they look very gross in the morning. I'm really not sure what is causing this but I don't like it... I also get pretty bad morning breath, but I've been told that the morning breath is caused by me breathing with my mouth open in my sleep. Any ideas? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Teeth that are kinda crooked are okay. They add character.
      I used to have kinda crooked teeth but I’ve been wearing Invisalign for the last 2 years so now there’re straight but sometimes I miss my old smile because I used to have a nice original and unique smile and now I just have a straight bland one. I did not straighten my teeth because of aesthetics but because one of my tongue’s papilla would sometimes get caught between two crooked teeth (it was a sudden and awful pain).

      Also, super white teeth are not natural and look really fake. Whitening systems weaken your teeth and your gums (and over-sensitize them) so they’re not very healthy.

      As long as your brush and floss (and do dental cleanings every 6 months), you have good teeth.

      Super sexy Johnny Depp says, about his imperfect teeth (he always makes them look worse for each role), “I’m proud of these. When I see people with perfect teeth, it drives me up the wall. I’d rather swallow a tick than have that!”

      Make sure you get enough calcium and nutrients (vitamin D, fluoride, phosphorus). I had the worse yellow teeth each time I was pregnant because no matter how much calcium and supplements I would get, my baby would suck it right out of me. Then I got back to normal after the delivery, thank goodness. As they say: one child = one cavity…yep, no matter how much you brush and floss.

      Morning breath is not caused by you breathing with your mouth opened while you sleep.
      I won’t bore you with the details of volatile sulphur compounds.
      You have bacteria in your mouth. During the day, you salivate all day long and swallow your saliva, barely noticing that you’re doing that (except when you eat), so the bacteria are flush down your stomach non-stop and cannot just breed and stay in your mouth.
      When you sleep, your salivating stops so you do not swallow your saliva and the bacteria multiply like crazy and produce that volatile sulphur compounds that stinks.

      This is why babies have such sweet breath, because even when they’re sleeping, they keep salivating a lot and drool. Even during the day, babies always drool all over the place so they have nice smelling breath.

      Now, using mouthwash on a regular basis is not a good idea. It will disrupt the natural flora of your mouth, which will have to compensate so your bacteria will grow at a super crazy speed and make your problem worse.

      It’s like people shampooing their hair every day…then they have to shampoo every day or they get crazy greasy hair if they don’t shampoo for a day, since their scalp glands are overproducing oils to compensate for the constant effect of the shampoo.

      Get off the mouthwash for 3 weeks, so your body can re-adapt to producing a normal level of bacteria so you don’t get yellow teeth and pretty bad morning breath. You’re going to have a worse pretty bad morning breath but bear with it for a few weeks. After you wake up, just brush your teeth and tongue and use a tongue scraper and suck on a candy that makes you salivate, then brush your teeth again (because of the sugar in the candy…you don’t want cavities).

      And don’t believe what you see on TV or in movies…lovers DO NOT wake up and kiss. Those are actors, playing a scene during the day, when they have good breath (that’s when you want to occasionally use mouthwash, when you’re an actor and you have a kissing scene coming up).
      I think it’s kinda gross, to see people just waking up and kissing…eeewwww! Go brush your teeth and pee first before you have morning sex, for goodness sake!

  32. QUESTION:
    What's in an onion that makes you have bad breath?
    Like what are the bad breath ingredients in an onion?

    • ANSWER:
      The onion smell comes from organic compounds that contain sulfur. When you eat an onion or garlic some of these compounds stick on the back of your tongue and produce the bad smells. The bad breath does not come from the stomach as most people believe, but from the back of the tongue. In fact, most bad breath comes from the back of the tongue where bacteria also produce bad smells. To cure "onion" breath or "morning breath" you need to clean the tongue. After brushing your teeth, clean your tongue with a good tongue cleaner.
      I use OraBrush tongue cleaner.

    Please help and 5 stars is yours

    Thank You

    • ANSWER:
      There are far more reasons for bad breath (halitosis) than parasites. And parasites do not live in your stomach--too acidic. Try gum disease, cavities, tongue problems, sinusitis, lung disease, etc. Do not self-diagnose & treat--recipe for disaster.

  35. QUESTION:
    What can I do if I am having a panic attack?
    My stomach feels like it is on fire, and my lower back locks up and I am in pain. I also find that vomiting is a common reaction. I get really cold, and I almost become short of breath.
    Any suggestions will help, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Definitely seeking professional help is something I would recommend. It's easier to get rid of panic attacks if you have someone to work with you consistently.

      But for those "in the moment" times, there's a lot of things you can do to get through the specific attack.

      When you're not panicked try to figure out if there's certain situations that bring the attacks. Does it happen when you're all alone? When you're in a crowded place? When you start thinking about a particular event in your life? Once you figure out what sets you off you can be better prepared by having your coping mechanisims in the top of your mind when you're in those situations. Whatever you do though, Don't avoid the situations after you figure it out... that will only make it worse in the long run.

      It can get rid of the anxiety that comes along with thinking that the panic attacks are uncontrollable and can come over you at any time.

      Also when you're feeling okay think of different things you can do during an attack to calm down. I'll list some popular ones here, but you know yourself best. Some of these might work for you, some not, but I hope they will give you the inspiration to come up with your own ideas.

      !. Think about what thoughts go through your mind when you have a panic attack, and think of something calming you can say to yourself when you are feeling one coming on. A lot of times the panic we feel is magnified by having panicked thoughts about the panic! :) It can be as simple as "You're safe. You're okay. This will pass." Sounds dumb, but it worked for me. And you don't even have to say it out loud.

      2. Think of specific breathing exercises you can do that will help get rid of the physical side effects. For example, concentrating on making your breathing slow, deep, and regular will relax your back, get rid of the shortness of breath, and might even get rid of the vomiting. You can do this in a public place because it's not weird for someone to step over to the side and take a moment. Look up info about "square breathing." That's the easiest breathing technique to do in a public place because it doesn't require sitting down or closing your eyes or anything. I do it while walking, driving, when the boss wants me to do ten things at once, etc etc.

      3. Sometimes what feels like the beginning of a panic attack really isn't. Check in with yourself. Are you hungry" Angry? Ate something funny? If you can identify it and take care of it you might be able to avoid some of the attacks.

      4. Any exercises you can think to do that help you either get back in touch with your body or help you get back in touch with the rest of the world are worth trying. For me I play the fives senses game because it gets me back in touch with both. I look for 5 everyday objects, and for each object I have to think of a descriptive phrase for every one of my senses. Like I'll look at a tree and think "It's green and brown with little orange patches. It rustles in the wind. It smells like sunshine and new growth. It feels rough and scratchy. It tastes like... well I dunno what it tastes like but it probably tastes like a mixed green salad." All of that just goes on in my head and no one around me is the wiser.

      Most of what I wrote about here is cognitive-behavioral stuff. It takes forever to type out because it involves writing about both your thoughts and behaviors. But if you think about it all the things I suggested are really really simple (even if I had to use a lot of words to say it!) :) Cognitive behavioral works really well for things like panic and anxiety and a lot of therapists know how to do it. It's a short-term thing, too. Like roughly eight weeks.

      Hope this helps.

    • ANSWER:
      GARLIC is a WONDER MEDICINE - It has lot of good qualities and helpful for very many disease. instead of taking garlic Pills try to take atleast 2 bulbs of raw garlic and it will reduce the BP considerably.

      I am shortly writting a blog on GARLIC, which I reproduce for your knowledge. It will be posted in Yahoo 36 and Multiply blogs soon.

      GARLIC - THE WONDER MEDICINE
      Garlic Chewing may give you bad breath and pungent smell, but it an essential ingredient for cooking in Middle Eastern and Far Eastern countries. This garlic, can actually be a boon for your health.
      Garlic and its cousins (Onions, chives and scallions) are probably the most intriguing of all vegetables. Garlic lowers cholesterol, triglyceride levels in our blood, reduces the risk of heart disease, High blood pressure, fights infection and boosts immunity. And, as if that weren't enough, the data is strong for the prevention of cancers of the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum. The National Cancer Institute is sponsoring a huge clinical trial on garlic's ability to prevent stomach cancer.
      It was Louis Pasteur who first described the antibacterial effect of garlic and onion juices. Garlic is effective even against antibiotic-resistant strains. It even kills Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a kind of bacteria which is implicated in the cause of some stomach cancers and ulcers.
      Allicin is the most powerful medicinal compound derived from garlic and provides the greatest reputed health benefits. Allicin does not occur in "ordinary" garlic, it is produced when garlic is finely chopped or crushed. The finer the chopping and the more intensive the crushing, the more Allicin is generated and the stronger the medicinal effect. As well as having antibiotic properties, Allicin is an excellent anti-fungal and has been used to treat skin infections such as athlete's foot.
      The diallyl sulphides (sulfides) obtained from garlic are less powerful than Allicin but can still reportedly provide some benefits to health. Diallyl sulphides are also less volatile than Allicin. They do not degrade as quickly and, importantly, the health benefits survive cooking. They are reportedly good for the blood and circulation in some cases. The sulphides might also help to lower the levels of BAD cholesterol, hence garlic might help to keep the heart and cardiovascular system healthy. Diallyl suphides also have a reputation for boosting the immune system.
      Scientists from the university of Alabama at Birmingham lead by Dr David Kraus said: have now found that Garlic can help keep the heart healthy. According to a them, garlic boosts the body’s ability to produce ALLICIN, for relaxing blood vessel, increasing blood flow and preventing blood clots and oxidative damage. sulphide which relaxes blood vessels and keeps blood flowing easily, as already told.
      The researchers also found that RBCs exposed to minute amounts of garlic juice immediately began emitting hydrogen sulphide.
      Further experiments showed that the chemical reaction took place mainly on the surface of the blood cells, playing a vital role in helping cells to communicate with each other. It stimulated the cells that form the lining of the vessels to relax, causing the vessels to dilate. This, in turn, reduced blood pressure, allowing the blood to carry more oxygen to essential organs, and reducing pressure on the heart.
      It is good to take two or three cloves of Onion with food. If you can not relish the taste and smell you can have it cooked and take. Or you can even take Garlic Pearls available in pharmacies.
      Garlic has been held in high esteem for its Health building qualities for centruries. It contains high percentage of minerals and vitamins. It also contains traces of iodine, sulphur and chlorine.
      - It is regarded as a rejuvenator. It is found to remove toxins and revitalize blood.
      - The ethers in garlic juice is so potent and penetrating that they help to dissolve accumulated mucous in the sinus cavities, in bronchial tubes and lungs.
      - It has been found effective in Asthma
      - It has an antiseptic effect. -

    Why does my breath always smell bad?
    I brush my teeth 3 times a day and brush the back of my tongue and everywhere else too. I even chew gum every hour, but the smell just doesn't go away. I floss too. I use mouthwash but it doesn't seem to work. I don't eat smelly foods either.

      The smell doesnt come always from your mouth. Most of the times, acidic stomach causes bad breath. People with peptic ulcers also suffer from bad breath. Its better for you to see your doctor and have a check up with your digestive system.

  38. QUESTION:
    How to stop being super scared at night?
    I have always been afraid at night for as long as I can remember but it is much worse now. I have had episodes of sleep paralysis and for those of you who haven't experienced this it is VERY scary. It feels like you're being held down and you can't make a sound and are completely unable to move. Then I watched Paranormal Activity 1 2 and 3 with friends and they scared me out of my wits. Of course, I don't think of these things during the day but when the night comes every frightening thing I've ever experienced or heard about comes to my mind. I always sleep with the covers over my head even when it's hot because I get so scared something will happen because it has before. It's rather pathetic because I'm nearing 17 so these things shouldn't bother me anymore but they do. Anyone have any helpful tips for me?

    • ANSWER:
      Three suggestions:

      1) Perform deep breathing exercises whenever you are laying in bed to fall asleep and definitely whenever you have a sleep attack. To do this, you breath in deeply (2-3 seconds) through nose and out through mouth (1-2 seconds). As you breath in, make your belly fill up with air, not your chest. This is called stomach breathing.

      2) Practice progressive muscle relaxation. Starting from your calves, then thighs, butt, abs, chest, shoulders, biceps, triceps, forearms and then all those same muscles in reverse order down to your calves. Then repeat. In this order you flex each muscle for about 5 seconds. While you do this, you do the stomach breathing. Count each muscle contraction up to 4 or 5 seconds in your head. Do this for 3 cycles and you will be relaxed and you will be able to redirect your thoughts. Focus only on the counting and on the muscles.

      3) You go to a safe place in your mind while doing stomach breathing. You start with the stomach breathing and then you imagine yourself in a safe and relaxing place... possibly a cave entrance just off of a hot sandy beach. Feel the cool cave breeze, feel the hot breeze from outside, see the bright sand, see the clear blue sky, sit on a rock and feel how cool the rock is, feel sunshine flowing into the cave. As you sit there on the rock with the smells and breeze and other senses, you feel sun rays slowly moving from the top of your head down to your toes warming you up. Engage your senses in this serene environment. Hear the waves gently crashing.

      These exercises engage the body, all your senses and most importantly your mind. When people get scared they subconsciously slow their breathing down and their breathing gets shallow. There is a medicine for fear, it is called oxygen. Oxygen naturally calms the mind, that is why you breathe deeply and calmly.

  39. QUESTION:
    what could be the problem with my gastrointestional tract that could cause bad breath and body odor?
    has good oral hygiene and wash every day with excellent soap. i have had a very bad case of bad breath and also a bad taste in mouth that wont go away. even after washing the body odor doesn't ease up some. they say that sometimes bad breath can come from a problem with the stomach what could this be. please help in that my social life is gone. a few mints and even chewing gum doesnt help. and also no dental problems either

    • ANSWER:
      Empty stomach, digestive disorders like infection of the digestive tract, constipation and infection of the stomach are some digestion related problems that make up the second most common list of causes of halitosis or bad breath.

      Garlic and curry, and other similarly spiced up foods which basically contain onion, hot peppers and other spices. Spices tend to stay and re-circulate through essential oils they leave in your mouth.

      Cheese – It gets a hold on your breath and doesn’t let it go. Sometimes, other dairy products too are responsible for bad breath.

      Fish like tuna and anchovies, and spicy deli meats like salami and pepperoni also leave their respective peculiar smell long after you have had them.

      While there are plenty of short-term products such as gums and fresheners on the market, most do not last more than a couple of hours and tend to only mask the bad breath rather than address underlying causes.

      For this reason, many people are now turning to natural herbal and homeopathic ingredients such as Kali. Phos, Silica and Sweet Fennel to successfully help them with halitosis. Kali. Phos is well known for its antiseptic and cleansing properties and is effective at addressing putrefactive conditions such as halitosis, foul smelling flatulence and stools.

      Silica works by cleansing the cells of toxins and ridding the body of bad odors, while addressing some of the underlying causes of bad breath such as gum disease, sinus infections and mouth abscess.

  40. QUESTION:
    How can I lose weight fast before the summer ends?
    I would love if I could fit back into a size 3 again, right now I am in a size 9 and it make me feel like I am fat! Also I have Volleyball coming up and I need to get in shape for that!!!

    • ANSWER:
      You have to keep your heart rate up longer than 20 mintues for each activity. You don't start burning calories until that 20 minute mark to where you are burning fat. So you really do have to atleast double your time on the bike.

      I dropped when I started using my stationary bike and playing xbox at the same time. I get so involved in the video game that Like an hour and half later...I am like WOW....12 miles!!!
      It really works. I dropped 20 pounds on that alone.

      I also went to my local drug store and did a colon fiber cleaning. Your intestines have alot of old rotten waste and you can tell espeically if you sweat and your sweat has a "food" smell of what you eat. You are sweating out whats rotting in your intestines. Its bacially just fiber tablets but you stay on it for approx 2 weeks and it cleans off the walls or your intestines and makes things flow smoother.
      Sorta the same theory with drano and your kitchen sink pipes. When you eat alot of meat the diameter of your colon and intestines get more narrow and so things tend to stick to the walls...Like pipes in the kitchen..the more you stick down there..the more the drain will clog up from everything attatching to the walls of the drain pipe.

      People who are in their mid 20's or higher can loose about 10 pounds alone on just cleaning out their system. From all the years of eating badly. It helps your colon, intestings, your digestive track, you sweat cleaner, it helps bad breath..because bad breath comes from your stomach and intestines so what is rotting also comes back up thru your air.

  42. QUESTION:
    Why does my breath smell when I'm hungry?
    I've noticed that if I skip lunch or something, my mouth gets this really weird taste and I smell really bad. The smell won't go away until I eat something. After I eat something, then THAT smell stays in my mouth, so I have to chew gum or brush or something to eliminate the smell. However, if I do either before eating something (gum or brushing, that is), the smell comes back in a few minutes. I don't understand how this happens, for most people its the other way around, when they eat they smell but when they dont eat they dont smell. I can't find any info online about this, someone please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Halitosis (bad breath) when you're hungry due to skipping meals or dieting is actually pretty common. There are two theories as to why this happens. Both theories relate the causes of "hunger odor" to the causes of its better-known cousin "morning breath."

      The first theory claims that hunger-induced halitosis is due to lack of saliva production. Saliva helps to irrigate the mouth and wash away plaque and odor-causing bacteria to a certain extent. The act of chewing while eating stimulates saliva production. If you're also failing to drink enough water in addition to skipping meals, dehydration will only make the situation worse.

      The second theory has to do with the inner workings of your intestinal tract. Your pancreas produces a multitude of enzymes commonly referred to as "pancreatic juices," which aid in digestion in various ways. Although the production of pancreatic juices are accelerated by the process of consuming certain types of foods, your pancreas is always producing some of this substance. When your stomach and small intestine are empty (as in a fasting state), these juices can decompose and release an unpleasant odor.

      Although hunger-induced bad breath is not unusual, skipping meals is unhealthy for a variety of reasons. If you must skip meals occasionally, at least make sure you're drinking lots of water.

  43. QUESTION:
    Is there A Surgery That Can Straighten Teeth?
    I don't have really bad looking teeth but my two front teeth are very crooked.I was wondering if there was a surgery that could straighten those teeth,instead of wearing metal for two years.
    I've also been told that they would straighten by themselves in due time,but I doubt it.
    My dentist ruled out invisilign so thats out of the window.

    Also I have bad breath but good Brushing habits,could it come from me not eating veggies? it seems the smell comes from my stomach and smells like waste to be honest :-)

    • ANSWER:
      There is no surgery within the dental realm that can at once straighten your crooked teeth. But there are alternatives to wearing braces. One of them is getting laminates done over the two teeth, which in other words is also known as smile designing. Based on how crooked your teeth are or how much is the rotation angle, the dentist may need to perform intentional root canal or not. Post that decision, your teeth will be laminated to give them a completely new look & at the same time improving your smile!

      Good brushing habits need not mean you cannot have bad breath. Bad breath can arise from food debris left in between your teeth (where brush bristles wouldn't reach) or due to unclean tongue. So u can start by using dental floss to clean the inter-dental spaces & tongue cleaner to clean your tongue right till the most posterior region u can reach.

      At times, people suffering from hyperacidity can have regurgitation of acid in the oral cavity which can often leave behind bad breath. But i doubt if such is the case with you. Although if u have other acidity related problems then u must get treated for the same, which will solve your breath problem as well.

  44. QUESTION:
    why do some people have such bad breath?
    There are a couple of ppl I know who's bad breath is noticeable from across the room.
    Also can a person w/such bad breath be aware they have it?

    • ANSWER:
      Bad breath (halitosis) originates from your stomach, not your mouth. Usually digestive problems or an ulcer is the problem. No matter how much they floss or rinse or brush, it'll come right back. Although not brushing and allowing your teeth go rot and go black will certainly aid in the foul smell of something dead emanating from your pie hole.

  45. QUESTION:
    What they don't tell you about working in the dental field...10pts best answer?
    I'm currently considering becoming a dental assistant. I understand that you have to get certified, you have work your way up, etc etc but what are the things that people don't tell you about working there? Are the dentists really lazy or no one goes to code, something like that (I know far fetched but just throwing some ideas out there lol).

    And the fun things no one talks about too! Thanks for any advice or tips whether it's working in the field or getting certified!

    • ANSWER:
      I've been a dental assistant for more than 10 years, and am now not only assisting, but am managing the dental practice... I have to say I love assisting more than any other career I've ever had (and that includes waitressing, restaurant management, car dealership management, teaching, sales & marketing, and more!!!).

      For me, it's a perfect career; however, it's not right for everyone, and (since you asked) I'll throw some of the bad/unusual/weird things that you might come across out there for you... but if you really are interested in the dental field, don't let these things throw you - they don't all happen on a regular basis, so as long as you're OK with them on occasion, you'll be fine. It's a great place to work, it really is!

      First of all, keep in mind your starting salary may be VERY low; the dental assistant profession is a highly underpaid one that, in the real world, doesn't keep up with the salary projections on salary.com or the board of labor! In reality, most dental jobs offered to entry-level grads right now are starting around an hour. For someone with about 5 years experience, you're looking at an hour. It is possible to make more than that in certain areas (the board of labor certainly thinks so!) but unless you become a back office manager, this is more difficult and more rare. So basically, don't expect to make more than - an hour your first five years or so. You might, but again, that's definitely less likely.

      You need to be interested in working inside someone's mouth all day. I'm totally fascinated with teeth & gums, but many people start to feel claustrophobic and grossed out after awhile, especially during surgeries where we need to flap the gum back and suction up decayed pieces of bloody gum tissue. You will have your face only about a couple feet (if that) away from someone else's open mouth at all times, during the majority of the day. You will get splashed with saliva and blood, although you'll be wearing a mask and lab coat, so it won't be an infection risk or anything. Very often, you'll be able to smell the decay coming from a cavity inside someone's mouth, or they may have bad breath you have to breathe in for several hours, despite wearing a mask.

      You need to have a strong stomach and be OK with people's body fluids: blood, saliva, vomit, gum tissue, plaque, calculus, pus, and mucus. Some people vomit during treatment, and you'll need to clean it up. You also will be constantly wiping and suctioning saliva, blood, infected tissue, etc. Sometimes you'll watch the dentist cut open an abscess with a blade and you'll suction out the pus.

      It's also a LOT of patient interaction. You present treatment plans, go over fees, make sure they're comfortable, interact with them during the procedure. You may need to take care of the patients' needs while still concentrating on what the dentist is doing (serious multi-tasking)! You will see a lot of anxious or fearful patients who need a lot of soothing or hand-holding, as well as screaming or crying children; it will be your job to soothe these people and calm them down.

      There also may be a lot of people who tend to get demanding and nasty. The dentists' office brings out the worst in some people, and you'll have to calmly deal with outrageous demands, yelling patients, people who come in JUST for pain meds (drug seekers) and people threatening to sue for a really ridiculous reason (rare). You'll have to deal with them calmly without the practice look bad while keeping the patient happy. If you're good at staying calm and are generally just a good "people person", this won't be a problem for you.

      Working as a DA is rarely a 9-5 job. Due to the fact that the schedule constantly changes throughout the day, you may be required to stay after hours (I used to have to stay until 6, 7, or 8pm about once a week or so) due to a backed-up schedule or an end-of-day emergency. You also may need to work weekends or weeknights.

      You will also have to be INCREDIBLY detail-oriented to maintain strict chart notes, equipment hygiene and infection control procedures. It's tedious and stressful; if you slip up, you could land a patient in the hospital with a serious infection or with an allergic reaction to the wrong med. No one goes "off code" in a dental office!! Some people find this part too stressful; however, if you're a bit of a perfectionist and very detail oriented, you should be fine.

      Dentists can be hot tempered and get angry a bit too quickly, but I've never seen one that's lazy... and many are really very nice! Once you learn a particular dentists' quirks, you should be fine with this as well.

      The fun stuff?? Making friends with patients; becoming part of a valuable healthcare team; the rewarding feeling that comes from helping people; the comeraderie you develop with the dentist and staff; in my office we play practical jokes on each other; and the fact that teeth and gums really are fascinating things to stare at all day :P

      I wish you all the best - it really is a great profession!

  46. QUESTION:
    my dogs breath smells like poop all the time?
    my tea cup Yorkie is 10 months old and his breath smells like poop all the time. I give him breath bones but it doesn't work. what causes this and how do I prevent it?

    • ANSWER:
      Bad breath can have many causes. It can be the food your dog is eating, it could be that he has sores in his mouth, gum infections, rotten teeth or it could come from his stomach.

      I am personally not a friend of those breath bones, instead I am using a dog tooth brush and dog tooth paste (never use a human tooth paste!) and brush my dog's teeth. Additionally raw meaty bones and good nutrition will be the best for a good mouth hygiene.

  47. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of bad breath?
    my friend has the smelliest fckn breath, besides brushing his teeth, how do you get rid of it

    • ANSWER:
      yea the only things that cause bad breath in most people are cavities (which are decaying teeth) so ofcourse they smell... plaque or tartar on the gumline... plaque and tartar are bacterias and thats what causes all bad smells that come off or out out of the body.... or stomach problems... which im thinking are probably the least of the causes next to bad dental health.. so either go to the dentist and get a good cleaning done on your gums and teeth or go to a gastrologist and find out if theres something going on inside your body.. in the meantime electric toothbrushes get rid of plaque and mouth odor ALOT better than regular toothbrushes so invest in one of those... i think everyone should have an elecrtic toothbrush its the next best thing to a trip to the dentist office if you use it twice a day plus floss

  48. QUESTION:
    How rancid smelling do you think a caveman's breath was?
    i never thought of it until now but their breath must have been kickin!

    • ANSWER:
      i doubt it was as bad as we would imagine...

      most "really" bad breath comes our stomachs. Today, we eath things that cause fowl chemical reactions in our stomach leading to flatulance and bad breath (we eat a great amount of meat on a daily basis, for example. A nutriant that early man would not have had in large quantities.)
      Early man would have only eaten specific things in his/her sourroundings. Also they would have eaten the same things their ancesters ate...so their bodies would be used to digesting them...

      Also, many of the roots and hard vegetables they ate would have acted as tooth-brushes.

  49. QUESTION:
    I have 3 conditions, what can I do about them?
    I was born with tremors. My Mum asked the doctor about it once when I was younger, and he said it was a condition. I Never done any thing about.

    I have vitiligo skin condition, which runs in the family

    Another thing is my breath smells bad all the time, I have had it since I was young and my teeth and gums are fine. I think It is coming from my stomach. What is this?

    • ANSWER:
      I have vitiligo too, and I hate it because I'm the only one in my family who has it and never met anybody who I can talk to about it.

      For the bad breath, sometimes it results from bacteria that ae hiding somewhere other than the gum and teeth. Try a new hygiene, scrub our tongue with the brush or with tongue scraper, try brushing your teeth more often ( basically after every meal) and floss, try mouth wash after any snack or drink.. you never know, some small changes in you hygiene could make a huge different. Wish you the very best!

  50. QUESTION:
    How do you suggest to someone that they should visit a dentist, and SOON!?
    I'm sure he has trench mouth, or something very similar. Sometimes his breath smells like rotten meat, it's really bad! He thinks I'm criticizing him whenever I suggest seeing the dentist, but all I'm trying to do is help him. It's a known fact that bad gums can cause all kinds of heart and health problems, but he insists the smell is coming from his lungs or stomach. I say he should rule out the obvious and go see a dentist first.
    Opinions, comments, criticisms....jokes....whatever!

    • ANSWER:
      Keep telling him what you have been telling him. Maybe he'll get tired of hearing about it from you and finally go.

bad breath smell coming from stomach
