      I believe this is true. It's the same for depression. Depression isn't an illness on its own, it's a symptom of other issues, which is why one treatment for depression isn't successful for everyone who suffers from it. You have to find out the underlying cause (and there are at least 5 biotypes of depression).

      You say it can take over a year to "sort out my stomach". Why 1 year? Do you have a study or any evidence that backs that up, or is that just your best guess? 1 year of a restrictive diet is a massive part of my life.
      I'd be interested in that too. The evidence I've seen suggests the gut microbiome shifts within 4 days:

      Personally, I haven't noticed gluten has any effect on my condition, in fact, I was gluten-free when I developed rosacea.
