A simple test to determine if candida may be a problem is to do spit your saliva into a glass of water, upon waking in the morning. Do this prior to putting anything into your mouth. You may have to work up some saliva to spit into the glass, and may do so a few times to ensure that you have enough in the glass to cover the surface of the water.
a half hour. If there are "strings" coming down from your saliva, if the water turned cloudy, or if it sank to the bottom - chances are that you probably have candida!
If you do NOT have a
candida concern, your saliva should stay at the top of the glass and will eventually dissipate after 30 minutes.
Although this simple test is a relatively quick, economical way to determine if you have a yeast problem, sometimes people will test negative so it is best to pay attention to the symptoms presented and see your physician who can then perform further studies.
