Candida is a yeast that is part of our digestive flora, however in some individuals the natural balance of the gut is disrupted leading to a pathogenic form of the organism. This results in many symptoms ranging from fatigue, bloating, diarrhoea/constipation, muscle aches and headaches, to name but a few. This test is used not only for detecting the presence of the infection but also as an indicator of the stage of the condition.
The test can be done either by taking a blood sample (10ml tube) from the arm or by a saliva spit test into a tube. These are then sent to Genova Diagnostics for analysis. The results are returned to your therapist for discussion with you and ways of going forward.
