I think it's a great idea.
You're right SCD is very restrictive, but many find it very helpful.
I think you'll be surprised to see how many of your symptoms will wean once you go dairy and wheat and gluten free (there's a difference between wheat free and gluten free, you'll have to google it to get the nuances).
Good luck and let us know how you do.
