I don't think that I am in any way denying the validity
of the spit test. Any cronstruction of fact around such
premise is nothing a simple farse.

The point of my recommendations is simple. It needs
to be done. Anyone that places themselves in the shoes
of a physician seeing a patient, will not likely
provide Rx right and left without verifiable
scientific tests froma credited laboratory. If there
weren't any lawyers, courts and malpractice civil
complains out there by the bunches, the spit test would
be signitficantly more reliable. Additionally,
given the amount of information on this subject, while
knowing that you have done plenty of reading regarding
the C. Albicans issue, you then must be aware
that there are lots of false positives and negatives.
Concomitantly, I personally would not want to risk
the expense, time and possible side effects of taking
one more medication where I might not need to. One look
at this board would clue anyone that other than a pharmacy,
or the medicine cabinet of a cancer patient, that of
a CH sufferer must be pretty full of tried and failed
treatments. I think that we owe to ourselves
to know for sure, and not risk false positives
or negatives. The test may also fail in the false
negative side. If candida is the real root
here and a false negative is evidenced, what then?
how does one know for sure? I am willing to wait through
another year of this horrific pain because the
spit test said that candida wasn't it? I am not,
are you? The cost of the test pales by comparison
to one course of Amerge, Imitrex, etc. What are you arguing?
