Introduction:

Candida is a type of yeast that is naturally present in the body. However, when candida overgrows, it can lead to a variety of health problems, including oral thrush, digestive problems, and chronic fatigue.

One way to check for candida overgrowth is to do a candida spit test. This test is simple and non-invasive, and it can be done at home.

How to do a candida spit test:

  1. First thing in the morning, before eating or drinking anything, spit into a glass of water.
  2. Let the glass sit for 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes, observe the glass. If there are strands of saliva floating in the water, this could be a sign of candida overgrowth.

Interpretation of results:

  • Negative: If the saliva sinks to the bottom of the glass and there are no strands floating in the water, then the test is negative.
  • Positive: If there are strands of saliva floating in the water, then the test is positive. This could be a sign of candida overgrowth.

If you have a positive candida spit test:

If you have a positive candida spit test, it is important to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and get treatment. There are a number of things that can be done to treat candida overgrowth, including dietary changes, antifungal medications, and probiotics.
