The Inspired You: Episode 2 “Candida Home Test”


Hello! Hello! This week I am going to be discussing the at-home saliva test that we can all do to see if we are suffering from Candida Albicans. What exactly is Candida? It is a subtle yeast infection that is commonly overgrown in our digestive tract, particularly in our small intestine, and it is far more common than most of us know. I am here to educate on this tenacious fungal overgrowth that is effecting our society for the worse in so many ways.  There are two different ways to test and see if you have an overgrowth of Candida in your gut. The first test is the saliva test and all you need to do is simply take a glass, fill it half full of water, then spit a dime-sized amount of saliva into the glass. It is that easy! This will be done first thing in the morning before eating, drinking or brushing your teeth and is done for six consecutive days. Monitor and record the results at the end of 45 minutes. There are four different ways in which the saliva will appear and they are as follows:

  1. It stays floating on the top. This is great news because it means you do not have an overgrowth of Candida in your intestine!
  2. The second possibility is the saliva will start to grow legs which means you have a mild case of Candida.
  3. Thirdly, you may notice some flecks of saliva floating within the cup indicating that you have a moderate case.
  4. And finally, if you have any parts of saliva that sink to the bottom of the cup then we are talking about a severe case of Candida!

The last three should all be treated so if any of these are happening to you, it is time to kick Candida outta of there and do my 6 week Candida cleanse.

The second test that you will need to do (this one is the most important) is a free online questionnaire found at Once you answer the questions, a score is generated and ranked in order of severity depending if you are male or female because yes, both genders can in fact have Candida in their gut. Although, it is more common in females than in males.

So…… there you go everyone! I hope this was helpful and I encourage you all to do the above tests. Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions and I look forward to getting as many people as possible on the path to ultimate health by implementing my 6 week Candida cleanse.

The Inspired You : Episode 1 “Hello Everybody!”

Hello everyone and welcome to my YouTube channel. My name is Leahan Frandsen I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner…….. say what lol??!!  Essentially, I am a Holistic Nutrition Consultant and I take clients through a series of lab testing, as well as an intake questionnaire.  The questionnaire is important as is allows the client to explain to me how they feel now and how they have felt in the past. I then take both of those pieces, put them together, and come up with a protocol (aka game plan) that not only encompasses diet, but also rest, exercise, stress reduction and supplementation. All of the issues that we experience in life whether it’s anxiety, depression, indigestion, bloating, gas, skin rashes, etc, are surface symptoms that so many of us experience. I am here to educate on the importance of healing the digestive tract and your gut to allow the body the ability to heal from within.

My first series of episodes is going to be on Candida Albicans which is an overgrowth of fungal yeast that occurs in certain areas of our body. My particular niche is focusing on the overgrowth of Candida Albicans in the digestive tract. I personally have dealt with Candida myself, and have experimented with different protocols over the years which has led me to formulate one amazing Candida cleanse. I am so excited to share this amazing 6 week cleanse with all of you and am confident in its ability to alleviate this pathogen once and for all. I strongly believe that Candida is a major factor contributing to numerous health issues that many of us experience. We should all be waking up feeling energetic and vibrant and so excited to start our day but unfortunately most of us do not feel that way. We are running on “E”, our gas tank is empty! We are supplementing with caffeine, Pepsi and coffee just to make it through a day and we are not present in our daily lives like we should be. I am here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way and you have the ability to heal yourself, heal your life and in fact live the best life possible!

I would love, love, love it if you could share me and this channel with everyone that you know, especially if you feel like they would connect with any piece of what I am discussing.

My YouTube channel will be showcasing tidbits of information in regards to Candida as well as overall health and wellness discussions. I want to inspire you all to live life and heal the human body from within.


So let’s talk about Candida. Many of us suffer from daily symptoms of:
• Chronic Exhaustion
• Bloating/Gas
• Mental fog
• Recurring vaginal infections
• Skin rashes
I feel as though at some point we learn to accept that living with these conditions is the norm and we simply ignore it, but I am here to tell you that these symptoms are not necessary and we do not have to live this way.  The answer to improving these symptoms and living a more energized, vibrant life may be easier than you think. The answer may lie in the fact that you have an overgrowth of Candida Albicans which is in fact, the most common of all yeast infections as 85% of Americans may have it.  Candida can be found in the mouth, intestines and vagina.  When an overgrowth occurs in the GI tract (intestines) it may lead to leaky gut and wreak havoc on our immune system.
There are a few simple ways you may test for this and they can even be done at home.
