I am concerned I have an overgrowth of yeast colony in my household. I was reading things last night about Yeast infection, symptom of systemic / yeast overgrowth, candida albicans, etc., and came across this:http://www.stopyeast.com/saliva.html
It is a self-test of saliva to determine if you have a yeast or fungal problem.
It says, to spit in a glass of water first thing in morning before drinking or brushing of teeth. And that after 15-30 minutes, there are 4 options.
1. is to have saliva still on top with "stringy legs" hanging down.
2. is to have cloudy water or flecks of saliva suspended in water.
3. is to have saliva sink to bottom.
all of these are said to mean, a yeast or fungal concern.
4. is to have saliva stay at the top of the glass, eventually dissipating.
this is said to indicate negative for yeast.
Well all that said, to say this: I did the test, and had option 1 after 20 minutes. I had my partner do the same (in a new glass of course) and he had option 2.
I want to know, how effective does this seem to you? I know I do indeed have a yeast infection in my vagina. And have suspected much bigger problem for a year and a half, for overall health in both me and my partner, which I think could be attributed to yeast.
If you don't mind to do this test and tell me your results, and if you believe them accurate or not.
And if any one is able to explain WHY these results work this way, if they are accurate. Would be much appreciated. Thank you so much!!!
