So when I first discovered Plexus Slim my friend (and now my upline), Mel, told me a lot of information about what is commonly known as the “spit test” to check for an issue called Candida. Now I am one of those people who will Google anything I have never heard of before to do my research – I do not buy into things lightly – especially things I am selling or promoting to others! Well I was totally amazed at how much I did not know before about this.
So I woke up this morning and went directly to my glass of water – I did not even stop to pee! So I spit into the glass then walked away (a gal can only wait so long in the morning before using the restroom and pouring a cup of coffee!!!!) I came back to check it and HOLY COW – I am positive for an overgrowth!!!! One of my first thoughts – why after speaking to my doctor did they never tell me about this?! Why was I so uninformed after 6 years of battling weight loss?! So now I will do a 7 day treatment of ProBio 5 (4 pills each night) and Bio Cleanse (2 pills each night) for 7 days and re-test.
I have literally tried it all in the last 6 years since having my son, last year alone I actually hired a personal trainer and lost NOTHING in 3 months of 5 days a week workouts…. so I went to my doctor in June and she did all sorts of tests – my thyroid was “middle of normal” but she gave me a prescription for Liothyronine anyway to “rev it up”… still nothing…. so I saw a whole bunch of friends posting about this Plexus… I tried it… followed the spit tests steps etc and BANG… weight loss is happening…. I was not even going to sell it but IT WORKS!!! (oh and yes I made a follow up call to my doctor who now says that’s a good reason for lack of weight loss – why she did not tell me this BEFORE being on a prescription for months on end…well I wont speculate)
Did you know that the reason you’ve been unable to shed those stubborn pounds from the belly and thighs could be due to the natural yeast content in your body? It’s true. Yeast overgrowth (also known as Candida Albincans) is a major inhibitor of weight loss.
Candida can wreak havoc on the body in a number of ways, from thyroid problems, to inability to naturally regulate blood sugar levels correctly, to causing dizziness, tiredness, and even joint pain. In combination with all of these attacks Candida often times places significant barriers to weight loss.
That is why so many diets for women fail. Even the most healthy diet plan followed to the letter can prove ineffective if there is an overabundance of yeast in the body fighting your attempt to shed those unnecessary lbs. But how do you know if yeast could be to blame for your weight struggles?
You just can’t escape yeast. Candida albicans is in the air, in your throat, and in your gut. That’s a fact of life. This yeast is everywhere, coexisting with all the other microorganisms.
But when Candida grows out of control—like when we consume sugar in the form of “white stuff” or even too many natural sugars from fruits and/or fruit juices—this normally harmless yeast becomes an invasive troublemaker. You can end up with intense fatigue, sinus pain, headaches, joint problems, urinary infections and…weight gain.
SO HOW DO I CHECK??? WHAT DO I DO TO FIX IT???
Candida Yeast Spit Test Fill a clear glass with water and place it by your bed at night. When you wake in the morning, work up a bit of saliva and spit into the glass of water. It is important that nothing enters your mouth or touches your lips before you do this. Immediately make note of how the saliva looks. Check again 2 or 3 minutes later. Check the glass every 15 minutes until you leave for the day. Healthy saliva will be clear, it will float on top and it will slowly dissolve into the water without cloudiness and without sinking. There are normally bubbles or foam present.
- Strings traveling down to the bottom of the glass.
- Cloudy saliva that sinks to the bottom of the glass.
- Cloudy specks suspend in the water.
- The more strings and cloudiness there are, and the faster it develops, the greater the Candida overgrowth.
So, how do you tackle a Candida overgrowth?
Personally I recommend that you take ProBio 5 (4 pills each night) and Bio Cleanse (2 pills each night) for 7 days and re-test. You can still lose weight but it will be slower than the average. You will still lose weight but it MAY be slower than the average. Also, keep in mind the greater the overgrowth the longer your treatment will need to take.
This is the path I have to take so I am right there with you!
You can’t totally eliminate Candida, but normally your probiotic defenses work with your immune system to keep the “fungus among us” out! As that natural balance breaks down, however—under pressure from too many antibiotics, birth control pills, chlorinated water, excess dietary copper, and not enough zinc from too much chocolate, soy, and regular tea—one in three adults, mostly women, experience the discomforts of Candida overgrowth.
