A theory about bad breath and sweating

Saturday, October 23, 2010

I sweat a lot. I am always soaked at the end of spin class and crusted with salt after a long run. I used to be embarrassed by my copious perspiration and comments at the gym "Did you just go swimming? Need a second towel?", but it's just the way my body functions, and it does not bother me any more.

I have been feeling the past few weeks that I have bad breath. I have been brushing and flossing diligently. Keeping breathe mints handy in case I need to work close and one on one with someone. But it has not been going away. I eat healthy and drink plenty of water. My friends have said they don't notice anything, but I do.

This morning I did an intense spin class, my first hard workout since my bike crash a month ago. (My shoulder is still painful and the extent of the injury unknown. Hoping to have MRI soon, but that's a whole other blog.) I was sweating profusely as I usually do, and I was a bit stinkier than normal. I started thinking that since i have not been doing my regular sweaty workouts, I was excreting things through my skin today that had been accumulating over the month without my regular daily sweat sessions. I am not a stinky person usually, just a sweaty one. The it dawned on me that my recent lack of intense exercise and sweating could be the cause of my bad breathe.

That's my theory today.

    I have had bad breath, lost my job due to it. tried to find a new job but it's very hard once you stink up the office. I had tonsil stones and awful bad breath. My friend told me to Google Oraltech Labs as it got rid of his bad breath and his post nasal drip. I've been following Oraltech Labs for about 2 weeks now and I feel much better, also people are not avoiding me anymore so it seems to have cured my bad breath as well.

    Your theory could be right. I read somewhere that people sweat less as they get older, and I think that's the category I'm in now. I sweat much less now than I used to when I was younger.
