I have been inflicted with this debilitating and embarrassing problem for over a year and a half now. This forum really helped me at times and I literally tried every "cure" I could find in here and the internet.
People are very cruel and when your breath smells like poo it is very hard to interact socially. I can understand what everyone is going through here so I thought my story may help some of you.
I would estimate I have spent in excess of $15K buying various supplements, candida killers, as well as GP and specialist visits. Tried all the mouthwashes, peroxide, baking soda, nasal irrigation etc. It was an absolute nightmare and I was becoming more and more reclusive and not getting any better. Doctors were unable to help and just kept prescribing drugs or saying "Ō cant smell anything". Went to E.N.T specialist and was given another prescription of antibiotics. Went to a Gastroenterologist and had an endoscope as well as a barium x-ray. Nobody could find anything wrong with me.
A work colleague recommended his chiropractor who was also a naturopath. After about 30 minutes of consultaion and testing she said - your stomach is only working at 15% capacity. She prescribed Golden Seal (500mg) 3 times a day with meals and a Vitamin E supplement twice a day at any time. This was to be carried out for 20 days.
After about 10 days my breath was back to normal and I was digesting food properly again. It must be noted that I was already on a very strict no sugar/gluten/yeast diet (the anti candida diet) during this time. Although I'm not sure how effective that is because it didn't really seem to be working for me. It may have really helped the supplements heal my stomach though.
I now can eat and drink anything once again, although my lifestyle and diet is obviously much healthier than before.
Please feel free to ask any questions, I live in Australia and the doctor I saw is in Brisbane.
Please note that I am not interested in getting into a debate on what works, why this works, why that doesn't work etc. I know what worked for me and have posted this to help the other people who are still afflicted. Everything is worth a try.
Good luck and keep your chin up. there is light at the end of the tunnel :-)
