Self Test 2 - My Body Fluids
We know this is NOT an
accurate scientific test BUT it IS a real INDICATION of the density of
your fluids which can harbor micro organisms and possble be a symptom of irritable bowel syndrome.
You heard it right - - this is a spit test.
best time to do this test is the first thing in the morning as soon as
you wake up. Before you rinse, spit, or put anything in your mouth, go
get a glass of water (in a clear glass). Now build up a bunch of saliva
(just mouth saliva, do not cough up anything) and spit it into the glass
of water. Observe what happens.
The saliva will float. That is OK
and normal. If within 15 minutes you see thin projections extending
downward into the water, it is a positive sign for candida. The
projections may look like hair, or small strings, like a jelly fish or
spider legs, moving down into the water from the saliva floating on the
top. Other positive indications might be very "cloudy" saliva that will
sink to the bottom of the glass within a few minutes or particles that
slowly sink or suspend below the saliva glob. What you are seeing are
colonies of yeast which band together to form the strings.
