Diet Soda Breath? Dry Mouth?

Saliva is a very important part of oral health, providing 3 important functions:

  1. Enzymes to help with digestion of food.
  2. A method to stabilize pH (keep the acid levels in check).
  3. High levels of oxygen in order to keep oral tissues healthy and fresh.

If you suffer from dry mouth (formally named Xerostomia), you naturally have less saliva than the average person. Less saliva means less oxygen and less oxygen means you have an anaerobic environment. This is the perfect situation for sulfur-producing bacteria. Basically, the bacteria are capable of making high levels of sulfur gases, which in turn cause bad breath and a foul taste in your mouth. Diet soda breath stems from these problems.

It isn’t the actual soda that causes diet soda breath. It is the artificial sweeteners in diet soda. But some people have it far worse than others. That is what I will attempt to explain. The whole issue of diet soda breath encompasses many factors.

Some tongue formations are also more conducive to dry mouth than others. Generally, the rougher one’s tongue, the more likely they are to have bad breath. While you cannot inherit the bacteria of bad breath, you can inherit a specific shape of tongue! Just as one would inherit a parent’s eye color, hair color, height, and ear shape.

Once the tongue becomes very dry, or if the tongue becomes irritated by extra hard scraping or brushing, the outer layer becomes very sensitive.

Burning Tongue Syndrome

Another symptom is “burning tongue syndrome”. Many patients who are diabetic may notice a burning of the tongue once they become thirsty. It is important, when one has these symptoms, to stay away from oral rinses that may burn or make your mouth dry. The resulting pain is indescribably painful according to those who suffer from it.

The standard recommendation for Burning Tongue Syndrome and Dry Mouth is the following:

  1. Stop using oral products which make your mouth dry and/or contain sodium lauryl sulfate.
  2. Stop drinking citrus juices (tomato, orange, grapefruit, etc.).
  3. Avoid coffee.
  4. See your physician regarding possibility of diabetes or thyroid problems.

And, use an oral mouth rinse that isn’t irritating – and yes, we have one to recommend (knew that was coming, didn’t you. 🙂 )

Sincerely, this is an excellent product and is amazing just in its ability to help bad breath! As a diet soda consumer, I have dealt with that “diet soda breath” problem – this stuff? Wiped it out entirely! Used as recommended (twice daily), and NO MORE DIET SODA BREATH! This is one reason we’re honored to shamelessly promote this product – or any of Dr. Katz’s for that matter.

This workout will work the entire core area of the abdominal muscles.  This will increase the effectiveness of the workout.  You combine five moves, doing each for one minute. This will keep the workout challenging, upbeat and stave off boredom.

It is important to note that you do need to incorporate some aerobics into your exercise routine for maximal effectiveness.  Another option is to use this workout and repeat it at least three times to equal a 20-minute aerobic workout.

Always keep proper form while you are doing the following exercises.  If you do these exercises improperly, you will defeat the purpose because you end up working the wrong muscles.

No matter where you are – home, office, or the park — you can use these five moves to build stronger, more appealing stomach muscles. For a more intense workout, simply add a standard set of ankle weights.

Strong abdominal muscles have many benefits in addition to looking great.  They can help alleviate lower back pain, improve posture and are an essential to overall good health.
