I heard that there is a quick and easy way to test for Candida, by spitting into a cup of water. Does this really work?

From what I have found, there is a lot of controversy as to whether it is accurate or not. It seems as though there are many things that can make your spit seem "stringy" in a cup of water. Here is a link where a doctor says that it is worthless.

and here is another that seems to be debunking this theory.

So, if I was worried about having this issue, I would go get a blood test to find out. But those are just my thoughts.
