I have had SIBO Candida/Gut issues.
I found a doctor who knew how to interpret labs and treated symptoms. I optimized my thyroid and balanced my sex hormones. The advice I would give now: don’t focus on the food. That causes more stress than anything else. Don’t go down so many rabbit holes and make yourself worse. Don’t restrict so much that you have only 10 foods you eat. Eat a wide variety of whole foods and get your thyroid (especially T3) and other hormones in check. I unfollowed all groups (I got a notification for this post), went for walks, got out in the sun. It was never about the food for me, it was about the hormones.
