I don’t think there is anything to be concerned with buckwheat; it seems completely healthy to me and I have not had any problems eating it daily. I’d say in general, if something works for you on the diet than go for it; something that doesn’t work gives you allergic reactions, etc.
The flax seeds are completely OK too; I think they are the one type of seed that contains virtually no mold.
Lemons will help you detox and recover during the diet so eat as much as you want.
The constipation is very common and will be an ongoing thing during the treatment. I myself am dealing with this right now, and take a strong supplement to help me go to the bathroom (it’s called magnesium chloride). I have no idea whether you can get this in stores or not because it is prescribed to me by my naturopath and he makes it himself.
The grape bitters will help this as well as the molybdenum and digestive enzymes (if you decide to use these) for constipation.
These die-off symptoms are normal and will go away between 2-4 weeks. If you can do a sauna, hot bath, steam room, etc (some form of sweating) this can help relieve you of them as well (mentioned in other posts). Try the molybdenum.
