  • Home yeast test - spitting in a cup anyone?

    Has anyone heard of this/done this? 1st thing in the am you fill a glass with water and spit in it. Every 15 mins (for an hour), check to see if the spit has crystalized and or has threads hanging down...if so, you have a yeast problem. I tried that this am and had several threads...I don't want to go to the dr. again tho! Is this an accurate test? Thanks.

    Tracy ~ 29 years old with Toxoplasmosis (from birth), Fibro/CFS (since age 13...ouch), severe IC, IBS-D, severe PFD (surgery made it even worse), vulvodynia, hiatal hernia, GERD, ulcers, severe gastritis, numbness/tingling in extremeties, pelvic nerve damage--mainly urethral, urinary retention, pelvic reconstruction 7.10.07 (fixed rectocele, rectal prolapse, lifted bladder, urethra, uterus, and repaired vaginal walls), Raynaud's, 2 severely herniated discs in neck and one in low back, anemia, PCOS, anxiety/depression/panic attacks (since forever). Still having major bowel problems (inability to empty rectum...any ideas?? ).

    I'd like to be on House, MD as a medical mystery.

    I take: LIQUID Atarax, Flomax, Soma (yet again), acidophilus, Glucosamine/Chondroitin with MSM & collagen, d-mannose. MAJOR flare from Cystoprotek! Re-trying freeze dried aloe vera w/some decent results!

    Tried and failed: Elavil, Ultram, Prosed DS, Benadryl, Bentyl, Valium, Ativan, Zanaflex, Librax, Sanctura (all caused retention among other things), bladder instills (owwwwww!), Elmiron (allergic-throat tightening). Failed Interstim-no feeling in sacral nerves...

    I'm allergic to penicillan, sulfa, reglan, quinolones, clindamycin, and now LATEX!

    That's one I've never heard of. If you feel you may have yeast, you really should see your doctor.

      I have read about it but I don't know if it is accurate or not. Hope you start feeling better, if not maybe you should go ahead and go to the doctor. Yes, I know, I don't like going to doctors either.

      Sending hugs, Trishann

        Is there such a thing as a full "yeast work up"? To discover what different kinds of yeast and how much you have? If so, how does it work? I'm assuming I'd be able to get this done an a gyn office?

        Thanks again...
