All About Candida and an at Home Test to See if You are Struggling With it


What is Candida Albicans?

From Dr. Mercola

Candidiasis: Don’t Let This Yeast Infection Wreck Your Health!

There’s a hidden battle that many people today don’t know they’re fighting – and it’s occurring right inside their body.

Fatigue and low energy. Depression and anxiety. Digestive issues, skin irritation, migraines, and headaches. Difficulty losing weight.

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

If they do, then watch out – you might be dealing with Candidiasis.

Unfortunately, there’s lot of misinformation is circulating on the Internet about Candida, which is why many people end up confused about their condition or fail to treat it altogether. 

What Is Candida?

The truth is everyone has Candida in their body.

This yeast-like fungus lives in your mucous membranes and, benignly, in your gut and intestinal tract. It thrives in warm, moist areas of your skin, such as your armpits, groin, and in women’s vagina (the folds of the vulva).

Candida is a normal part of your natural microflora. In fact, oral swabs in 40 to 75 percent of healthy adults will test positive for C. albicans, and up to 25 percent of women will be positive for C. albicans in their healthy vaginas without any sign of infection or overgrowth.

However, once there’s an overgrowth of candida in your body, then your risk of getting candidiasis increases – and this is when your health is put in jeopardy. (SOURCE)

Here is what Dr. Eric Berg has to say about it as well:

Here is the "Spit Test" you can do at home for free

Candida Saliva Test

When you awake in the morning, before you put anything into your mouth, work up some saliva and spit it into a clear glass of water. Within 1-3 minutes, look in the glass. If there are strings coming down from your saliva, or if the water turned cloudy, or if your saliva has sunken to the bottom, YOU MAY HAVE A CANDIDA CONCERN! Healthy saliva will simply float on the top! (You may want to put out a glass of water in the bathroom or on the nightstand the night before you wish to do the home Candida Saliva test, just to remind yourself not to brush your teeth prior to spitting into the glass.)

Dr. Mercola continues to say: There are many common health conditions that are actually connected to – and exacerbated by – Candida overgrowth in your gut, such as:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Fibromyalgia and arthritis
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Myocarditis
  • PMS
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Cancer, and more

Here’s another alarming fact: if you have been exercising and following my healthy eating guidelines, yet still struggling with your weight, then chances are Candidiasis may be to blame. It’s actually quite possible that with some people, an inability to lose weight is their ONLY symptom of Candidiasis.

Dr. Berg expounds on the different types of Candida and how to handle them. One of the biggest offenses that leaves us in a compromised state are ANTIBIOTICS, watch the video for more.


In summary, hopefully this helps you see the importance of getting a handle on any Candida issues as they are detrimental to our health. Focusing on fasting again...there are so many benefits to doing it and this is yet one more piece on our health page that recommends doing so. We will cover fasting more in depth on another day here on The Plain Truth, but God does have one mandated fast day in the Bible...God's people are commanded on the Day of Atonement in Leviticus 23:27-32, and you can read more about this from our main site, here. 

God instructs us to obey His commands. 


The Plain Truth is that God loves us. (John 14:21) He wants the best for us. He wants to bless us and make our food amazing (Isaiah 1:19) and heal our land (2Chron 7:14) and take our sickness away (Exodus 23:25) and set us high above all the nations of the earth! (Deut 28:1)

Why would we not want to respond out of obedience to God? 

God wants the best for His Family, for us, for we are His children! Why would we not want to choose obedience as this is the loving response and one that will continue to move us all in the right direction. God has said, “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land".  2Chron 7:14

Cancers erupting in ways ‘never before seen’ following COVID shots


Dr. Harvey Risch suspects patients’ immune systems compromised

Another possible side effect of those COVID-19 shots demanded for Americans by many governments and employers during the pandemic has shown up, and it’s not good.

It’s that cancers are “occurring in excess,” Dr. Harvey Risch explained in a report by the Epoch Times.He’s professor emeritus of epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine.

He appeared recently on EpochTV’s “American Though Leaders” and explained that clinicians have been observing “very strange things.”

For example, he said, there have been “25-year-olds with colon cancer, who don’t have family histories of the disease – that’s basically impossible along the known paradigm for h

But that’s changed, and he observed, “There has to be some initiating stimulus to why this happens.”

The physician described cancer as something a healthy human body can fight with ordinary immunity.

But if that system is compromised, cancer can advance.

ow colon cancer works…”

And there are other “latency” cancers being seen.

He explained cancers usually take time to develop, from two years to 30 years.


New York sees a surge in tuberculosis cases amid migrant influx and Covid fatigue


New York City is recording a ‘dramatic’ rise in tuberculosis cases, reports suggest — fueling fears the disease could resurge in the US. 

Preliminary data shows 500 cases of tuberculosis (TB) have been diagnosed in the city so far this year — marking a 20 percent increase from this time last year.

Infections are also at their highest level in the city for this time of year in more than a decade, raising concerns the disease could spill into other areas of the country.

Some health officials say the surge is being driven by fatigue following the Covid pandemic — with some people avoiding clinics and treatments — and cuts to funding — with the only TB clinic in Manhattan recently shuttered.

There are also fears the migrant crisis in New York City, which has seen more than 100,000 migrants arriving in the city since spring, could be driving the infection rates because this group is at a heightened risk of infection due to cramped housing conditions.

The above graph shows TB cases in New York City by year. Data suggests TB infections are already about 20 percent higher this year compared to the same time last year

Preliminary 2022 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention out Thursday shows that TB disease cases increased 5 percent in 2022 to 8,300 cases

TB was once one of the deadliest infections in the world and a death sentence for half of those it infected.

But with the arrival of vaccines — up to 80 percent effective against severe disease — and other treatments, the fatality rate has now dropped below four percent in developed countries.

Patients catch the disease by breathing in droplets laced with the bacteria, with infections beginning as coughing up phlegm or blood and a persistent cough that doesn’t ease within three weeks.

The US stopped routinely giving out the TB vaccine — called Bacillus Calmetter-Guerin — in the 1970s after cases and deaths nosedived in the country. 

But the vaccine may still be offered to patients and healthcare workers who have had close contact with a TB patient.

People exposed to TB patients will also be monitored and offered drugs to curb the infection. 

Doctors treat TB via administering a cocktail of drugs over the course of eight months to eliminate the bacteria.

Previously infected or exposed people, however, face the risk of ‘latent’ infections, when the bacteria remains dormant in the lungs ready to emerge should the immune system weaken again.

Responding to the rising TB cases in New York, Elizabeth Lovinger from the advocacy group Treatment Action Group, told Politico: ‘This is definitely a more dramatic resurgence than we would have probably expected.

‘When there are particularly high spikes in TB and other infectious diseases in New York City, that tends to be kind of a bellwether for the rest of the country.’

Across the US, TB cases are rising after falling in 2020 — likely because of a reduction in testing as most stayed home during the Covid pandemic.

There were 8,300 cases detected in 2022 and nearly 9,000 in 2019.

Before the pandemic, TB cases were steadily declining after dropping below 20,000 per year in 1997 and below 10,000 in 2012.

In New York City, the rise is likely worsened by the closure of one of the four clinics dedicated to TB handling patients — and the only one in Manhattan.

The TB clinic in Washington Heights was shifted to handling Covid patients during the pandemic and was later shuttered. Local Health officials insist there are still plans to renovate or reopen the clinic.

The reduction in capacity means patients with active infections now have to wait two to three days for treatment, raising the risk they infect others.

There are also concerns that TB could get into already cramped and overcrowded migrant centers in the city and quickly cause a wave of infections.

A spokesman for the New York City Department of Health insisted the city was still a ‘leader in TB care’.

He said: ‘We have pioneered treatments and therapies in New York City.

‘We also launched a new latent tuberculosis infection provider outreach campaign to increase screening, diagnosis and treatment among at-risk New Yorkers.

‘Additionally, we have a contract with a local provider that is worth up to $500,000 to ensure that New Yorkers receive care and that we have additional capacity in place should anyone need services.’
