Candida Tests

The most effective way to test for Candida is through a saliva sample or complete digestive stool analysis. The sample is analysed by a laboratory, which will assess the level of Candida antibodies present in your gastrointestinal tract.

How is the test performed?

For the saliva test – you simply collect a sample of saliva first thing in the morning pop it in the post off to the lab and within one to two weeks the results will come through. The complete digestive stool analysis is performed in the privacy of your own home. You will receive a kit with instructions on how to collect the sample.

Your practitioner will assess the degree of Candida and offer a treatment plan to get you back on track.

What is the difference between on the spot blood tests for Candida as opposed to stool and saliva samples?

Saliva and stool samples are far more accurate methods to determine if you have Candida. Saliva and stool tests provide you with the degree and level of infection. On the spot blood Candida test can often produce false negatives. Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic (MNMC) naturopaths prefer to use accurate and reliable methods of testing.
