Candida Testing - Candida Spit Test

Candida testing is often a matter of self diagnosis.

It seems candida sufferers follow the same course of action -- they feel terrible for quite a long time, recurrently visit doctors who can't help them or tell them what is wrong.

Finally stumble upon yeast overgrowth information and find that their symptoms are remarkably similar.

But how do you formally find out whether or not you are suffering from candidiasis?

There are two simple solutions. The first is a candida test questionaire we have devised. If you tick yes to at least five of these questions, it is very likely that you have are suffering from deep candidiasis.

You can also do a simple candida spit test once you answer the questions just to make sure you do have candida. Here's how the candida saliva test works...

Candida Spit Test

Before you go to bed leave a glass of water on your night stand or near your bed.

As soon as you wake up in the morning, before you brush your teeth or eat anything, work up the saliva in your mouth and spit into a glass of water.

Let the water sit for about 30 minutes then take a look at it. If there are stringy lines coming down from the saliva, the water turns cloudy or the saliva sinks to the bottom it is very likely you have candida.

Healthy saliva will float at the top and will not appear stringy or cloudy.

A spit test that shows the likelihood of candida as well as answering yes to 10 or more of the candida testing questions listed below means there is very little doubt you are suffering from yeast overgrowth.

Candida Questionaire

Answering yes to most of these questions (5 or more) means that it is very likely you have candida.

Let's see if any of these apply to you... (Check which one applies to you.)

Have you taken antibiotics for more than two weeks at a time or more than once in the same year?

Do you have (or have ever had) a high sugar diet for an extended period of time? A high sugar diet also includes white starchy carbohydrates taken in excessive amounts such as white bread, cereals, pasta and so on.

Do you feel constantly tired, almost as if you're "drained" and have trouble just getting through normal everyday activities?

Do you suffer from depression, irritability, anxiety and/or extreme mood swings?

Do you have trouble remember things or feel like your mind is "foggy" and you can't focus for very long?

Do you have indigestion problems such as heart burn, bloating, constipation, intestinal gas, irritable bowel syndrome, stomach pains or food intolerances?

Do you have insatiable cravings for anything sweet such as chocolate and sugary foods or starchy carbohydrates such as pasta and bread?

Do you have skin disorders such as eczema, persistent acne, itching, flaking, psoriasis, ringworm, athlete's foot or skin that bruises easily?

Are your hands and feet constantly cold or do you have pain, tingling or numbness in your limbs?

For women, do you take birth control pills or hormone therapy?

For women, do you have painful periods, infertility, endometriosis, or loss of sexual drive?
