Hi Montreal - thank you for coming back and offering to answer questions! Its great when people who are healed come back to help those that aren't. My son is 17 and has had EC for about a year - it started after taking Acne meds - not sure if it was the meds or it just dryed out his lips so bad - he did start using a lot of chapstick after that - and maybe overused that.
He did your diet for several months with no change - and then did a similar diet for anti inflamation for a couple of months that a naturopath recommeded. Then another naturopath suggested gluten/dairy free candida diet. He did that - no sugar/dairy/gluten - he basically ate gluten free cereal, lamb, fish or chicken, goat cheese, and we juice vegetables - but not starchy or acidic - just Celery and cucumbers. He didnt' notice a change with any of the diet changes, so he has gone back to pretty regular eating but still healthy = he lost about 30 pounds - about 5'10 130. He has also done lots of supplements the whole time - probiotics, fish oil, b vitmains, d vitamins.
My question is with the diet changes, did you notice changes in your lips right away? Because he has not noticed any changes, so I think there should be some difference with such a drastic diet. I have heard people with gluten sensitivity notice a change pretty quickly.
