Hello, Captain, welcome to the forum.
It took me probably four months or longer to finally come up with the correct Protocol that I wanted to follow which included a stricter diet. Once I had it right I followed the protocol very strictly for 3 to 4 more months before I was symptom free; but I never cheated once and took very high doses of probiotics and drank a “lot” of kefir. Of course, I wasn’t dealing with leaky gut which made a difference in the overall healing process.
