The most common way to detect the presence of a disease is to recognize
The most common way to detect the presence of a disease is to recognize symptoms and complaints that occur, such as pain, swelling, dizziness and more.
But health experts from the Smell & Taste Research and Treatment Foundation in Chicago, USA, have unique and different ways to detect the presence of disease.
That is, from smelling the smell that comes out of the patient's body and mouth.
Ellen Theodora told KlikDokter, several types of diseases can be detected from the patient's body through body odor, urine odor, and the smell of dirt when defecating.
High blood pressure associated with pregnancy is called preeclampsia.
This is an early warning sign of eclampsia that is deadly, and needs to be detected early so that immediate treatment can be given.
It is said that pregnant mother's breath has a unique marker that can reveal many things about health, including preeclampsia.
According to the Neurological Director of the Smell & Taste Research and Treatment Foundation in Chicago, USA, Alan Hirsch, MD, there is convincing research and shows that lung cancer can be detected by the aroma that comes out of the body.
It is an invention called "NaNose", a type of breathing apparatus developed by an Israeli company.
It is said that this device detects a special "smell" emitted by cancer cells.
When the human heart stops doing its job, non-filtered poisons will accumulate in urine, sweat, even breath.
Therefore, someone who experiences this disease has a very fishy urine, sweat or breath odor resembling raw fish.
"If you experience an infection of the gums, bacteria release waste products such as hydrogen sulfide that smell like rotten eggs," explained Dr. Hirsch.
This smell tells us that the person has gum disease, tooth abscess, or poor oral hygiene.
According to Dr. Hirsch, bad breath often accompanies people with schizophrenia and other types of severe psychosis.
Have you ever experienced one of the conditions in which your body or breath smells improperly? If yes, you should consult a doctor so that you get further examination.
If proven to have a disease, treatment as early as possible can be done so that the disease will not cause adverse complications.
