    on Candida.
    Didn't know anything can trigger it.

    Common Systemic Yeast Symptoms
    It is common to feel frustrated and alone when dealing with a yeast overgrowth because Candida is evasive to much of the medical community. The following list of common symptoms are indicative of candida overgrowth:
    · Gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn or pain in the intestines
    · Bowel irregularities, constipation or diarrhea or perhaps alternating between both
    · Food cravings especially for carbohydrates or sweets.
    · Mood swings, depression or suicidal tendencies
    · Headaches or migraines
    · Menstrual problems, PMS or break through bleeding, endometriosis.
    · Respiratory concerns, asthma frequent bronchial congestion
    · Skin problems, dry, itchy or hives
    · Finger or toe nail fungus
    · Vertigo or balance problems
    · Joint or muscle pain
    · Bad breath In spite of good oral hygiene
    · Allergies…air-born or food
    · Malabsorption (might be indicated by vertical grooves in fingernails)
    · Vaginal yeast infections
    · Itching or redness in body creases
    · Acne on face, back or body
    · Cravings for Chocolate, peanuts, pistachios or alcohol
    · Adrenal or thyroid failure
    · Hemorrhoids, fissure or rectal bleeding
    · Insomnia
    · Chronic fatigue
    · Feeling cold and shaky
    · Weight imbalances (over or under in spite of diet)
    · Poor memory
    · Puffy, dry or burning eyes
    · Urinary tract problems (infections or incontinence)
    · Premature ageing

    I have systemic yeast, but I could check yes to quite a few of those symptoms. Had NO idea so many of them could be related to yeast. Maybe I'll give the old spit test a try? Thanks for posting this.

    i mean, is there something we can try to see if we actually have this problem (besides going to the doctor so they can rob you of $500 that you don't have)... and if so, what remedies can we try?

    In response to your question.
    Found this answer in regards to tests run for candida.
    Hope it helps.

    Diagnosis, Tests, and Signs
    Tests that show Candida include:

    an EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) with or without biopsy
    a stain or culture of esophageal brushing
    a throat swab culture
    an upper GI and small bowel series (gastrointestinal X-rays)
