How to Test Yourself at Home for Candida, One of the Most Problematic Conditions for Modern HealthsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #health6 years ago

We recently published a post about candida and how in the proper amounts it is actually very beneficial and essential to good health, but an overgrowth can contribute to the destruction of the digestive system.

Here at the Garden of Eden, we are committed to not only our own great health but also the health of everyone else, so we are continuing our series on candida with an easy test you can do at home to check for a candida overgrowth in your body!

We suggest you perform this cheap and sustainable at home test so you know if you need to take steps to remove excess candida from your body. There are also options to have a medical doctor perform a blood or other test if you would rather go that route.  


Candida Test

The purpose of this test is to check the body for an overgrowth of candida.

  • Take a large glass container that you can see through and put at least 6 inches of water in it.
  • Work up a bit of saliva in your mouth, then expel it into the water. Set the container aside for at least 5 minutes.
  • You will be able to see the changes as time progresses. Check your saliva for changes over the next hour.
  • Compare your results to the image above. If the saliva is stringy, swirling, cloudy, or web-like from top to bottom of the container, OR all sinks to the bottom, then you have an overgrowth of candida. If all your spit sits on top the water, you probably do not have an overgrowth of candida.

Once you determine if candida is an issue for you, then you can do something about it! 

Candida itself is often just a symptom of other issues, so the first step is to remove the excess amount and that will make it easier to address the root cause of the problem; we'll go deeper into this in future posts.

Stay tuned, as we have much more to address in this series! Our upcoming articles will provide clear information on inexpensive and natural ways to remove excess candida from the body to alleviate the onset of symptoms.  

Further, because we are committed to achieving the highest degree of health possible, all of the adults and some of the children who live in the Garden of Eden are going to undergo candida testing and treatment protocols as needed too! We will record our results here on the blockchain for the benefit of all.  

We hope this will inspire you to do additional research and work towards the best possible health for yourself!

This is SOOOO important. I REALLY hope that people read this and do the tests. Almost everyone who is not EXTREME in their diet is likely suffering from this.
Excited for the next post on how to deal with these infestations!

I did the candida test. My saliva had the normal amount of blood and fecal matter. But, based on your test I might have to eat a little more dirt this week.

Thank you very much for this information. I hear about candida for several years and I confess that I have never taken the time to try to sort the good and the bad sources of information on the subject on the web ... I am interested however, I even talked to my doctor about candida last year and he seemed not to know too much about the subject ... And anyway, my doctor's solution would probably have been medication, although I would rather use natural methods and improve my lifestyle to improve my health! In short, I am very grateful that you are addressing the subject of candida and I will follow this series with as much attention as that on dental practices dangerous to health (Thank you for those informations too!). I go get me a glass of water and I collect my saliva to do the test !!! Thank you and good day to all of you at the Garden of Eden !!

Doctors not only know very little about it but have very non effective and dangerous methods for dealing with it.
This test is simple, be sure to read the prior post on this subject and check for the upcoming ones on how to BEST deal with this and other parasites NATURALLY!

Me and my lover have done the test and our results are similar, we obtained strings... I was expecting it because I have long suspected that we have problems with candida ... I can not wait to learn more about what we can do to improve our condition!

Grateful for the opportunity to share information of real value with you, @nature.sauvage! Relief is available. As Quinn says, western medicine is not only not very successful at treating this condition, but they recommend pharmaceuticals with dangerous side effects. We will share natural and safe alternatives for treatment, and many of our inhabitants will follow the protocol as well!

Pure gum sports. Please read the protocol and follow it.

Pure gum spirts. Please read the protocols online and follow them. No sugar period is very important.

I've already done this test and I am classic to the hanging drops! I already know I am allergic to yeast, wheat and rye from a skin test and I was told to avoid sugar which I don't.

I joined a few fight candida fb groups and they are militant and confusing. I'll take any help you have and will look for more posts on it.

I'm pretty sure sauerkraut is what I am supposed to eat and I am down for that since I love it. but if it's off the list - oh well.

Thank you for this comment and WE are here for YOU!
We are working on many posts to discuss how best to NATURALLY deal with not only candida but other parasites as well.
We will work on the diligently and get them ready ASAP. Your health is important to us and we have LOTS of experience in this realm.

I look forward to it. This is one area I did not fix when I lost" half my size" and I would really like to :)

Health is natural!
Embrace it!

Stay tuned - help is on the way :-)

So grateful for the opportunity to share real solutions for health and wellness with you, @fitnfun! We have lots of knowledge in this realm, and are happy to address any direct questions or concerns you have.

Fermented foods are excellent for restoring a healthy gut biome, and that includes sauerkraut and kimchi.

I have not tried kimchi but I think I can get it in Bangkok :)

...very helpful

Thank you - I will :)

Welcome dear...

I have the same issue and it seems the candida overgrowth may be immune system related.

I agree - I have RA and we all have it in my groups that check. Then the people who are strict on their habits seem to recover. Hmm.... could it be the poisoned food supply? Maybe!

I've been so much better since eating clean food...I totally believe that @fitinfun

Thank you for this informative post. Wonderful awareness :)

You're welcome! We're here to share health!


Great information! I'm going to take the test.

Great, hopefully you'll be healthy, but if you do test positive you can follow the treatment protocol with us.

I'm ok. Tested good. I'll check periodically though...... 👍🏼😀

Thanks for continuing to help us achieve better health and well-being. Much respect.

You're welcome, @ptmikesteem! Thank you for seeing what we do!

Candida is a symptom of too much sugar in the blood. Stop drinking sugary drinks immediately.

Thank you @gardenofeden. I will be taking this test later today and definitely staying tuned :) I strongly suspect that candida is an issue for/in me and greatly appreciate further guidance.

Much Love & Bright Blessings.
