Bad Breath from Stomach?

Are you suffering from Bad Breath from Stomach? If you think so, we hope that this article can shed some light.

First, if the bad breath from stomach you're suffering from was diagnosed by a qualified health Professional, please heed to his advice as it may be indicative of a more serious health problem, however if you think you're suffering from one because of a self-diagnosis, it's important to know that chronic bad breath is isn't always coming from your stomach.

There are a lot of possible reasons why you're suffering from bad breath and we suggest to explore these areas before concluding the you're suffering from bad breath from stomach.

Bad breath, which is also popularly known as halitosis may not only be indicative of serious dental problems but of possible health problems as well.

If you're suffering from it, first thing you should be mindful off is your oral hygiene. If you haven't done so; consider these three things: 

  • Submit yourself to prophylaxis (professional dental cleaning). Poor oral hygiene, almost always results to bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease, and other sorts of dental conditions. 
  • Improve your dental hygiene by regular brushing and flossing. Exert an extra effort on your brushing, making sure you cover all the areas of your mouth, including the top of your tongue. The dorsum of your tongue is home to sulfur compounds that often leads to bad breath.
  • Choose your mouthwas "wisely", we recommend Peridex. If you're not seeing us, ask your dentist about it as you can't buy it over the counter. Why Peridex - It contains 0.12% Chlorhexidine Gluconate which is proven to eliminate bad breath. Avoid alcohol based mouthwash.

If these three points eliminate your bad breath, congratulations! You're not suffering from bad breath from stomach, if not, more serious conditions may be causing your foul breath though sometimes it's on the kind of food you eat.

Food that dries your mouth can lead to halitosis. Example of these are as follows:

  • Garlic
  • Alcohol
  • Milk/Dairy products
  • Meat
  • Coffee
  • Antihistamines

Bottom line: try to avoid food/medicines that could dry your mouth. Dry mouth equals bad breath. Put more vegetables in your diet and make tea your best choice of hot drink; both are healthy alternatives and will not give you bad breath. Hopefully, this change of habits will eliminate your bad breath.

Bad breath from stomach, could be indicative of a more serious health condition. Well, more often than not, the foul odor doesn't really come from the stomach, except from occasional belching, which can smell more like onion, garlic, and other food that you recently ate. 

Your stomach is a very acidic environment that very few bacteria can live or would even like to live in it; they'd rather hang around your tongue or mouth.

Another reason why our stomach is a very unlikely source of bad breath is due to the fact that our esophagus is a closed and collapsed tube that's not expected to release air or gas aside from a simple burp. Continous flow of gas from our stomach indicates a health problem.

There are a few medical conditions that may cause foul breath which may be taken as bad breath from stomach. These are rare conditions and we do not say or diagnose that you're suffering from one through this article. If you're worried you're suffering from one, please see a qualified Health Professional for proper diagnosis.

People suffering from these diseases often show additional symptoms other than bad breath, if you're suffering from bad breath, it doesn't mean you're suffering from any of these diseases - see a dentist, first and foremost. 

Diseases that may cause bad breath are as follows:

  • Renal infections/failure
  • Diabettes Mellitus
  • Bronchial and Lung infections
  • Liver problems/failure
  • Carcinoma
  • Metabolic dysfunction

Since foul breath from such conditions seems to come from the inside, most refer to it as bad breath from stomach.
