How To Tell If You Have Candida Overgrowth- The At-Home Free and Accurate Candida Spit Test
THE TEST: In the evening, put a clear glass of water by your bed. The first thing in the morning, briefly rinse your mouth with water, swallow, and then gather some saliva in your mouth and spit into the glass of water. (Be sure to spit out saliva, not mucus.) Keep an eye on the water for half an hour, especially the first few minutes. If you have Candida overgrowth, you will see one or more of the following:
- Strings (legs) hanging down from the saliva.
- Heavy-looking saliva at the bottom of the glass.
- Cloudy specks suspended in the water.
If you see “strings” hanging down within three minutes after spitting into the water, cloudy specks showing up in the water, or “debris” sinking to the bottom, you most likely have extensive overgrowth, which will require more Candida-fighting action on your part.
If it takes longer than a few minutes for anything to show up, the Candida is not as serious.
If the saliva just floats on top and the water stays perfectly clear, you most likely don’t have Candida overgrowth.
The logic behind the test is simple.
If you have Candida overgrowth, it will show up in the saliva, a friendly environment for yeast. When you spit into the glass, the aerated saliva is lighter than water. However, Candida is heavier than either. Whether it sinks as “legs,” falls to the bottom, or floats around in the water, these are all indications of Candida. The more you see and the faster you see it, the more systemic the infection.
