Spitting out the first load and rinsing your mouth with water before taking the test would be more specific.
So the way I look at it, this test will only be helpful, indicating possible C. albicans overgrowth, with the right instructions AND, more importantly, if it is truly specific for Candida albicans, something I seriously doubt…
Thanks, Kate. I agree that we should rinse out our mouths, get rid of the first “load”, etc. before trying this quick and dirty test. We certainly did! OK, everybody, let’s back up and try it again! Please let us know if you showed a “positive spit test” AND if you were confirmed to have a candida overgrowth (via your ENT, endoscopy, etc) or if your testing came out NEGATIVE. I will say, Kate, most patients I know with this overgrowth (due to a low immune system) have a NO BRAINER case of overgrowth. Certainly, if we have vagus nerve compression decreasing our immune function, we are prone to chronic infections like this one (and UTI’s, etc). I look now at my tongue and am HORRIFIED. The really “bad” case that you see in the video is from a patient who has confirmed chronic candida — and this pic was taken after a month on fluconazole! We’re about to find out if she has it in her esophagus. I think she’ll share the pics! Yikes. I’ve spoken to a lot of patients and naturopaths who were unable to control their (or their patient’s) yeast infections. I don’t think that is controversial. Controversy seems to come in when discussions of potential SYSTEMIC candida pop up. Does that happen? I think the jury is still out on that one… *esophagi?* HA! Thanks, Kate! 🙂
