Well if you tell them you have a positive spit test, then they will think you are crazy, because it doesn’t mean anything whatsoever:
Unfortunately you have a difficult road ahead of you with western medicine. Western medicine typically only treats the symptoms not the cause of the problem.
I would bring up a few big points when talking to them:
-I would say to them you have a yeast overgrowth and not candida. They likely don’t know much about candida.
-I would mention that your digestion is poor (constipated) and you think this affects how you feel, etc.
-If you do talk about candida I would become more knowledgeable about it before talking to them. A good way to start out is to listen to some Dr. Mcoombs: http://www.candidaplan.com/new/media_center/
-If you talk them about candida I would mention how there are over 50,000 studies on candida albicans which is about the average of one study per day for the last 50-60 years. It has been more studied than cancer.
