Dear Dr. Ellie:
I am a mouth breather and I have noticed more allergies lately waking up in the middle of the night and mouth completely dry. I am religiously following your program. Any suggestions for dry mouth when sleeping?
Dry mouth at night simple: eat a Zellies mint!
It is very simple if the liquid carrying healing calcium to your teeth is dried off your teeth by air (passing in and out of your mouth) your teeth will have little or less natural protection. You need to offer that protection with xylitol and by strengthening your teeth morning and night.
I would expect you to see a dramatic improvement quickly since dry teeth with ACT on them will heal quicker than in a “wet” mouth.
I am excited for you expect great results!

Hello Dr. Ellie,I am a mouth breether as well, but i only have this problem at night where i have to wake up several times to drink water because my mouth and tongue became extremly dry. I have noticed that eating salty food at night is not helping at all, but the problem is there all the time.Is there are any recommendations other than using the Zellies Mint?I appreciate your helpWiss
You could put 4 grams of granular xylitol into a cup of water ( you may first need to use warm water to help the xylitol dissolve). This may be a good night time drink – maybe better than water alone. You could also make this solution into a spray – to spritz your mouth from time to time during the night. My final suggestion would be to contact a holistic doctor to ask if there are any herbal remedies- something to eat before bed that may balance body liquids.If you find any of these suggestions work well – please let me know
