A superb book written by a person who's been there! This book should serve as an invaluable resource for any person with yeast-related health problems. I especially recommend it for those who continue to experience problems even though they take antifungal medication, avoid chemical pollutants, and take nutritional supplements. -- William G. Crook, M.D., author of The Yeast Connection Handbook
Finally, a complete guide for my patients and myself. I refer to it all the time. -- B Schiltz, Nutritionist
If you were to gather a few books together for a library covering natural foods preparation, this book by Sondra Lewis would be one of the best to add to your shelf. Many books have been written covering the field, however this book occupies a unique place because of its ease of use, helpfulness and applicability, and good basic coverage over a wide range of topics. It is especially valuable because it was developed through the personal needs and hands-on experience of the author. The thoughts and concepts were gathered and developed from a wide range of references, with the references fully documented. Highly recommended from beginner to expert! -- L Hendershot, consultant
Sondra Lewis' knowledge of Candidiasis and the treatments for it is very impressive. In Allergy and Candida Cooking Made Easy she gives the medical background for problems related to Candidiasis and food allergies as well as providing useful techniques to help individuals affected by them feel better. I highly recommend this book to anyone with Candidiasis and/or food allergies who is eager to actually get well by putting some much-needed effort into improving their diet while enjoying what they eat. -- Nicolette M. Dumke, author of Allergy Cooking with Ease
The "Helpful Hints" are full of ideas to make the special diet easier to follow. I often use the substitution tables for grains, thickeners, and eggs to adapt family recipes. Sondra gives detailed instructions on making tortillas and crackers from many types of grains and grain alternatives. The "Specialty Foods" section has fun stories of where different grains come from and explains how to use them. Love using the Resources section to order organic foods I cannot purchase locally. My 8-year-old son uses the rotations with ease. He simply turns to the list of foods for Day 1 (or 2, 3, or 4) and finds out what to eat for breakfast. He has even taken the book to school to explain his rotational diet to his teacher. It took the mystery out of it for the class. -- Judy J., IA
This is the best cookbook I have seen on the subject of Allergy and Candida. Compared to other cookbooks, it is much more detailed and has a larger variety of foods and recipes. I like the idea of the four day meal planning and recipes with a wide variety of foods. It makes meal planning much easier to follow. The spiral binding allows the book to lay flat so that it is easier to read when following the recipes. Thank you for a much needed book on Allergy and Candida. -- Ross R., WI
