MEBO Metabolic Malodor Survey (international) for Dr Hazen click here
click to Read more/less

survey for ANYONE who identifies with METABOLIC MALODOR

begun : Oct20
end : no ending for now

Regular readers will know that Dr Stan Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic are developing a TMA-blocker pill, as they proposed in a 2011 paper that TMAO is a factor in CVD. Recently Dr Hazen and colleagues contacted MEBO as they have always thought they could also help with TMAU. This survey is to give them an idea of the 'state of the community'. It is a "version 1". They may not even look (though they have access permission), but it could be useful to give them an overview of the community

MEBO had a zoom call with Dr Hazen and his team in October. Another zoom call is planned when they have time

This is a GOOGLE FORMS survey

short url for survey :

current participants : 113 (update 18dec20)

Hi Anonymous,
Perhaps the site was down? It's working alright now. Please try it again. Only the first 2 questions are "Required," and if you have not answered them, then it won't submit your answer. Please try again and let me know if it doesn't work for you. There have been 13 successfully completed responses, so it should be OK now. Thanks for your participation!

Hi María, I have try twice again and in my monitor the form only shows up to the question "ulcerative colitis" in a way that I`m not able to reach the "send" bottom. I don`t know if it is because I`m using a lap top and the monitor is too small or what. I really want to send my comments.

Omggggggg after 24 years of bad breath and body odor
I am now odor free!!!!! ☺️My story is just like some of u. My odor would come during stressful moments, b4 my period or sometimes for no reason at all. I work in a hospital and my coworkers talk about me something awful. They avoid me like the plague. The family members of some patients would hold their noses or look at me in an angry manner. My friends would say things like "what's that smell or It smells like shit in here."���� Standing on any line or sitting on the bus drew unwanted attention. I have knots all in my back from being so tense all day with stress because of this. My life was pure hell!!!��
Good thing my husband and children don't smell anything at all.
Now I've been to about 14 diff doctors (GI x 3, dentist x3, dermatologist x1, GP x2 infectious disease x1, ENT x3 psychiatrist x1
They all thought I was crazy. I had my tonsils removed,ears cleaned, Colon cleansing, liver cleans, special deodorants, all kinds of supplements, candida diet, antibiotics, probiotics, low choline diet, copper, chlorophyll, lotions
and bleach baths. Nothing worked!!!
So I prayed very hard for a cure or to at least mask the odor. While searching the internet I came across this combination that does work!!!��

This is my daily routine
1. I take kelp 150 mg and zink 100 mg. (AM)
2. One cup of orange juice with 2 tsp of maca (AM)
3. One cup of black tea with two tea bags - no sugar (AM)
4. 8 ounce bottle of spring water with one tsp of baking soda for breakfast (AM)
5. One cup of black tea two tea bags- no sugar (Noon)
6. 8 ounce bottle of spring water with one tsp of baking soda with lunch (Noon)
7. Sip on spring water & baking soda through out the day while chewing gum!

I eat regular foods through out the day ( no restrictions)
I had a week consisting of
1. pre menstruation,
2. a busy & sweaty day
3. A nerve wrecking meet
All are the worst times for me and I had no BO!!!!
I'm elated, ecstatic and joyously humble. I'm assuming so are my coworkers��
I want to thank God for giving me a resolution to my problem!��❤️

I'm very happy to hear you found a remedy for you (our) condition. I tried a couple of mixes of things and behaviors that help some people, but it looks like it's up to every individual if same things work for him also. I'll try your receipe also and I hope it will work for you on longterm basis also, not just short term like it likes to happen with this disease.
Keep us informed, ok?
Good luck
