Any food is not right for you if it doesn’t agree with your digestive system. But, if brown rice doesn’t cause you a tremendous amount of bloating, gas, pain, constipation, or diarrhea, then its perfectly fine to eat.
Other people are going to say brown rice is unacceptable because it contains arsenic. If you’re going to drill every single food down and look at the heavy metal content of it, you’re probably not going to eat a whole bunch of different foods. For example, root crops like carrots, potatoes, and sweet potatoes can contain heavy metals. In fact, many natural foods can contain heavy metals. That’s why I’d be very careful about making assumptions based on what you’ve read on the internet. When it comes to deciding whether a food is healthy or not, remember to put things into context. You should always think twice about what the “food police” tell you.

Brown rice is an excellent food. For example, brown rice contains a tremendous amount of manganese, a trace mineral that is important for many different aspects of your health. Brown rice also contains niacin, vitamin B6, magnesium, and lots of fiber. There is ample research showing that people who swap out white rice for brown rice, lose weight, decrease their blood pressure, and improve their health overall. I don’t consider brown rice to be a “bad” food for people with Candida. Nevertheless, I think it makes sense to start with a small portion if you have Candida or a bowel problem. If you tolerate the brown rice well, that’s great new. In other words, brown rice can be a perfectly acceptable part of a healthy diet. Just remember that any food that upsets your digestive system is bad for you and is best avoided. This principle holds true whether the food is an apple, a banana, or some other food generally considered to be good for you.
The bottom line is this: eat what’s acceptable to you and don’t eat what’s not. This philosophy applies to any of the healthy food options out there. It doesn’t apply to foods or drinks like pop, deep-fried chicken, pizza, or candy. I call those foods “no brainer” foods because it is so obvious that you shouldn’t regularly include them in your diet, whether you’ve got Candida or not.
