The best time to do this test is the first thing in the morning as soon as you wake up (though it will likely show up in your saliva any time of day). Before you rinse, spit, or put anything in your mouth, go get a glass of water (in a clear glass). Build up a mouthful of saliva (just mouth saliva, do not cough up anything) and spit it into the glass of water. Observe what happens.
If your saliva contains thin projections extending downward into the water, it is a positive sign for candida overgrowth. The projections may look like hair, or small strings, like a jelly fish or spider legs, moving down into the water from the saliva floating on the top. Other positive indications are very “cloudy” saliva that will sink to the bottom of the glass within a few minutes or particles that slowly sink or suspend below the saliva glob. What you are seeing are colonies of yeast which band together to form the strings.
ADDITIONAL SELF-ANALYSIS QUESTIONS:
Do you have cloudy urine??
Do you have any skin conditions (eczema, psoriasis, rashes, acne)?
Do you have body odor or bad breath?
Do you battle respiratory infections, asthma, or allergies?
Do you have a lot of random symptoms that Doctors can’t figure out?
Do you have bowel problems (IBS, constipation, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, gas/bloating, acid reflux, etc)?
Do you have food allergies? (all starts in the gut!)
Do you have hormone imbalances or thyroid disease?
Do you have trouble losing weight?
Do you have lots of signs of inflammation or chronic pain that didn't result from an obvious injury?
YEP…over 90% of the time, Candida overgrowth is at the ROOT of these things. Stop running to Medical Doctors who want to medicate you and CANNOT help you. Don’t try to conquer this on your own. But be grateful you are getting close to the answer!! HAVE HOPE friends. We DO NOT serve a God of hopelessness, AMEN?! Everything is fixable, God willing!! And He gave us PLENTY of medicinal foods and powerful natural medicine to win the battle!
