Re: bad breath, white tongue, & metallic taste no matter what i do... help! kinda long -- please read!

Hey, sounds like you are so desperate; I am sorry about that.

One thing you may want to look into, is oil swishing. Oil swishing gets rid of the white tongue and bacteria that multiply in your mouth. It is easy, inexpensive and there is a lot of camaraderie in the forum here at CZ.

I also agree with checking out the candida protocol, and imagine that you already do not consume any white Sugar or flour, and no dairy?

Here's a short write up I found with some possible clues:
Blood cells contain hemoglobin which carries oxygen. When blood breaks down, iron is released and causes a metallic taste in mouth. Bleeding can be from the gums, sinuses or nose. The taste can get especially bad when someone has post nasal drip and the dried blood sticks to the back of the throat. If bleeding gums are the cause there is often bad breath associated with the bad taste.

Another uncommon reason for a metallic taste in mouth is due to small electric currents in the mouth. When two types of metals are used in two different dental fillings a battery can be created. Some believe that it's due to the mercury leakage from dental silver/mercury fillings.

Many oral or IV medications such as thyroid medicine, penicillin, and lithium can give a metallic taste in mouth. When someone is allergic to a specific food, the food can often be detected even in extremely small amounts. food allergies , such as with sulfur dioxide, can also cause this. Some gastrointestinal disorders can be aggravated by food allergies and cause burping, dry mouth, thirst, rectal itching and a metal taste. High protein diets can cause benign dietary ketosis. This has also been associated with a metal taste.

Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or cancer itself can cause a metallic taste in mouth. It has also been associated with B 12 deficiency, zinc deficiency, Bell's palsy, Strep throat and Sjogren's disease along with anything that causes dry mouth. "

I hope you find some answers soon....
