I was with a number of lovely Aussies on a New Zealand bike/trekking adventure; yet haven't yet visited Australia. So, you've made an important, albeit challenging health discovery. With that, you found the best starter source in Dr. Bredesen's first book. Not to be dissuaded by your gut's outcry - it took 55 years for those 'bad gangs of bugs' to get to their present state of dysfunction so now you've set off to allow healing. If you think of yourself as N = 1 and your microbiome as the petri dish, one can learn a great deal by choosing an elimination food plan. This is best accomplished with a health coach for support and that pantry makeover. Becoming aware of the psychology, tradition and socialization which are tied in with why we eat the way we eat, can guide new habits. But know that change is HARD, thus the value of a good health coach.
