I received a question by a reader. She wanted to know if anyone has heard of an unsweetened rice milk. She was aware of an unsweetened soy milk but she was looking for the rice milk instead.
Well, she might try the same way we make nut milks. To make nut milks, you just soak the nuts over night, toss the nuts and the milk in the blender and then you have nut milk. Perhaps rice milk was made in the same way. Or she could just get Rice Dream. Read more..

This article is based on a friend of mine who wanted to share her experience. She was diagnosed with Candida in September 2000. She had probably had it since 1988 or so though. That was when she started taking a lot of antibiotics. She took things for Strep throat and Tetracycline for Acne. Her doctor had been giving her Nizoral for two week intervals. When she went off for two weeks she took Nystatin. For the first 3 weeks, she didnt eat any sugar, but then she started to cheat. Now she doesnt eat what she did before she found out she had Candida, but she still eats sugar. She used to be really thin, probably due to the Candida, she now has hypothyroidism and has gained about 70 pounds. She would love to lose it, but she has tried about everything and cant seem to do it. Read more..
