We Take Candida Seriously
If you are serious about controlling your Candida symptoms you’ve come to the right place.
Up to 85% of Americans May Have Candida – do you?
Here is a home Candida saliva test (also called the Candida spit test) you can do in the morning. We started out using this test many years ago and believe it shows whether fungal yeast is present in the saliva (though we’ve never seen any clinical studies proving it is accurate). There are other Candida tests you can try that have been written by doctors who have spent much of their lives studying candida. We have 3 of those available free here on our site. All are available at the top of this page under our “Resources” link or at the bottom of this page. Use this spit test, if you wish, as one piece of your self-diagnosis.
How does the saliva test work? It’s simple, really.
Candida begins in the intestinal tract, where it sets up its ongoing production. As time goes by the yeast migrates along the mucous membranes of the digestive tract into the stomach, then up the esophagus and finally into the mouth. Often, depending on how thick the yeast becomes, it can be seen in the mouth and on the tongue as a white film called oral thrush. When the fungal yeast mixes into the saliva it has certain properties—it is heavier than water.
Candida Saliva Test
When you awake in the morning, before you put anything into your mouth, work up some saliva and spit it into a clear glass of water. Within 1-3 minutes, look in the glass. If there are strings coming down from your saliva, or if the water turned cloudy, or if your saliva has sunken to the bottom, YOU MAY HAVE A CANDIDA CONCERN! Healthy saliva will simply float on the top! (You may want to put out a glass of water in the bathroom or on the nightstand the night before you wish to do the home Candida Saliva test, just to remind yourself not to brush your teeth prior to spitting into the glass.)
