Hi I am a 50 Australian male pretty fit,[6'2" .185lbs ].well I have been up to 9 mths ago from when
this problem started. Ok my problem is I feel as if I'm producing way too much saliva especially
around the front of my teeth,I have to swallow it every 10 seconds & as soon as I have ,It comes
from the left side of my lower Jaw It then reforms at the tip of my tongue & the inside of my lower
teeth,its not thick or colored ,just clear saliva ,& has a feeling similar to a soft Cod Liver oil
Capsule left in the mouth [not taste ,just that feeling of size etc] My Doctor has refered me on to
a Neurologist .who has perscribed me Endep 10 , this has had very little effect [say 1 on a scale of
10] apart from giving me heartburn . I would like to know of any Natural remedies that I might try
to dry my mouth.I realise we produce a lot of saliva for a day & we swallow it unconsciously, but
mine is a PROBLEM because I am not doing it unconsciously & its really getting me down & I have no
energy to do much as this controls my life , I find I have to eat more or keep my mouth passed with
food as it is less noticable when eating or drinking thanks for now Rick

Common sage (salvia officianalis) is known for it's drying effects.

Check the pH of your saliva with narrow range pH paper.

Healthy saliva is around 7.1 pH, slightly basic.

Unhealthy saliva can be as acidic as 5.5 ( the cancer range ).

Perhaps your body is trying to tell you something??
