The source of the Candida Spit Test is unknown but it has been around a long time and is quite reliable in the diagnosis of Candida albicans overgrowth.
It is also known as the Candida saliva test.
Fill a clear glass with water and place it by your bed at night. When you wake in the morning, work up a bit of saliva and spit into the glass of water. It is important that nothing enters your mouth or touches your lips before you do this. Do not drink any water, do not brush your teeth and do not kiss your partner. I'm sure they will understand just this one time!
Immediately make note of how the saliva looks. Check again 2 or 3 minutes later. Check the glass every 15 minutes until you leave for the day.
Healthy saliva will be clear, it will float on top and it will
slowly dissolve into the water without any cloudiness and without
sinking. There are normally some bubbles or foam present.
Candida saliva will have one or more characteristics that point to a Candida albicans overgrowth:
The more strings and cloudiness there are, and the faster it develops, the greater the Candida albicans overgrowth.
If your saliva shows signs of Candida overgrowth, head straight to the treatments page to determine which treatment is best for you.
