Dear Dr. Dailley,
I wanted to let you know that I am very appreciative for your expertise in the treatment of my oral anaerobic bacterial imbalance where VSC production was abundant; as now it is absent*. To be honest, I didn’t think the treatment would work as I have tried most things available on planet Earth to no avail including: impeccable hygiene, many oral rinses, no drinking (beer/spirits) for more than a year, hydration, probiotics (BLISS K12, M18), antibiotics, chlorhexidine, ClO2, etc. It’s only been a couple days and I am shocked at the low level of VSC’s in my oral cavity*. To my surprise, people have stopped reacting adversely and I have noticed a change in the odor of my toothbrush, clothing, etc.
Over the years, in addition to my genetics, I have looked at my immune serological reports, which show chronically (slightly) deficient macrophage, neutrophil and eosinophil populations as well as slightly low IgG and interferon gamma levels… none of which have amounted to serious immunological disorders, but paternally genetically relevant. I assumed I would have to wait for a better understanding of the cellular role and the clinical relevance to oral floral populations, if any. I also had oral microbiological studies performed to better understand my oral flora, but no effective clinical paradigm was found to be relevant. I visited clinics, where antibiotics were prescribed and various treatments were pursued with no significant positive result.
Then, I took a chance on you after various emails. During our sessions you were straight forward and honest with your knowledge, giving me a “no-shit” assessment, as I call it. You listened to my questions and answered them completely and eloquently; specifically my questions regarding the biology/chemistry and the supporting published work that I found on PubMed. Your diagnostic as well as therapeutic methods were clear, scientific and effective.
I’m not really an overtly sensitive man but it does wear on you when family members, people you work with and your mates repeatedly ask you to brush your teeth or chew some gum or fill your Christmas stocking with oral hygiene products. From a young age my mother along with her friends used to make fun of my father regarding his severe halitosis (he also has a large tongue with deep fissures and papillae) before she cheated on him and left him (all the while telling me his breath was unbearable, classy, huh). It really frustrated and to a certain degree, angered me over the past 25 years as to why both I couldn’t fix my own halitosis problem by just applying impeccable oral hygiene and why people judged me as lazy/irresponsible or as an antisocial person because they thought my personal hygiene regime was deficient. Eventually, I became just that; somewhat antisocial and a skoch angry. You know the adage, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” well, I heard this quite often within my profession and took it to heart.
It has been a very short time since my last visit now, but I find myself excitedly inquisitive as to what I am going to do next. For a long time I have felt a small disadvantage in life as the cards I were dealt were not optimal, genetically speaking (not trying to sound like a victim, but verbal communication and hygiene in the scientific professional world or most professional worlds is a big deal… think if you went to a dentist and he or she had chronic halitosis… your confidence in him or her would be severely reduced and you would ask yourself, “They should know better?!”) Surely, others have it worse and I’ve always tried to remember I could be so much worse off, but now I feel… there are no excuses psychologically or physically to find my full potential and it feels great. I certainly am no slouch, as I have 4 degrees, a successful career, multiple homes and am financially secure… but this treatment has opened up my world in a different way. It has removed the stigma of severe halitosis*. My new reality is sinking in thanks to you Dr. Dailley. Much appreciated, Sir.
