The ulcers are probably caused by foods that are heavy in acids. She can try a diet of alkaline foods --- think green vegetables. Cut out the sugar and the dairy, which produce lots of stomach acid.

The white tongue is a by-product of the heavy antibiotics. Candida spreads when the healthy intestinal flora die with the bad bacteria.
