Candida

Many people can have problems with candida (yeast) infections without knowing it. Symptoms can include recurrent thrush and/or urinary tract infections, fatigue, malaise, lack of concentration, etc.

Candida Saliva Test
Here is a free and easy home test to check your system for a yeast/candida infection:

When you awake in the morning, before you put anything into your mouth, work up some saliva and deposit it into a clear glass of water. After about 15 to 30 minutes, look through the side of the glass. If there are strings coming down from your saliva, or if the water turned cloudy, or if your saliva sank to the bottom... you may have a yeast or fungal concern!

This site has another quick test you can do to see if you might fall into this category.

If, after doing these tests, you think you might have an issue, please see your health professional.

Interesting! And so easy to do. Much better than some of those truly yukky tests!
Keep well.

Hey! Thanks a bunch for that info! I have had a ongoing problem with yeast for years and think it is under control now but this is handy to know.
