Yes, it can be confusing; which is natural. There’s a steep learning curve as it’s a complicated complex to treat. Don’t worry, the forum goes much further than anything I’ve found online; even the web site. There are reasons for that, I’m sure. That’s why we are all here; to read/learn/share/guide. I’m NO EXPERT, only a fellow sufferer whose trying to wrap their minds around this all myself.
My best suggestion is to familiarize yourself with all the various components of the protocol. You might want to print out the various pages found here, as there is a lot of cross referencing. PM Able for the alternative strict diet this forum mainly uses which is also different than found on the web site.
The experts will know your answer on how to proceed. I don’t think it’s much of a big deal, just continue forward. Rarely, have I seen anyone not get cornered somewhere along their journey and learn from it – then share those mistakes with others. I bumped the SHARING OUR MISTAKES thread as well, which may be of some interest.
Good luck and many blessings on your healing journey.
