Im not qualified to respond to your issues since I have not personally experienced most of them, but I can attest to diet being a player in my recovery.
My original diet was never bad (medication induced candida) but choosing certain foods with antifungal qualities has been a big deal.
I encourage you to do alot of reading, especially of other people’s experiences, so that you can get an idea of different ways to handle your problem.
A big problem I notice for first-timers, ME INCLUDED at first, is that we think there is only one way to do this.
Then we try it, follow it to the letter, and when it doesnt work, we feel hopeless,tired,and scared.
The reality is that all of us is different, and what works for one may not be what works for another.
Otherwise, you would see alot of “im cured!” stories, and I can tell you there aint.
With that said, I would plan to be on a restrictive diet in Japan and just hope that it doesnt come to that.
I understand its very possible to be cured in 5 months, but have a plan in place incase you need more time.
Realistically, it takes most people longer, in some cases years, and that is not a bad thing as long as there is progress.
The one thing im learning is that this needs time above all else.
There is no magic pill that takes the place of time unfortunately.
