My gut (haha) says to heal myself quickly right now, and worry about dd later. But I'm really interested in talking it out, cause I'm not completely convinced either.
I wouldn't do the SCD again because it didn't do anything for DD, and probably sensitized her to nuts to boot. The candida diet helped me a little, although the symptoms that had gone away came right back when I went off the diet, and it made DD a lot worse because it was high in amines, which I eventually figured out cause her problems.
There's no guarantee that healing you will heal your DD. She'll probably still react to the same foods until she outgrows them. Theoretically it's possible to "heal" food intolerances, but I really haven't seen it happen in practice until enough time passes that they can be outgrown.
Also, gut healing isn't fast, easy, or cut & dried. It's a long, tedious process that's full of pitfalls for most people. We've been doing this for 18 months, and, while we've found some answers, we're nowhere near healed, and I really don't know if we will ever be.
What is your DD reacting to? I think there's a good chance that her new sensitivities are actually old ones that were just masked by whatever other foods you were eating that she reacted to. Or if she truly is developing new sensitivites, there's a good chance that she's food chemical sensitive.
