Vegan combatting allergies

I, a vegan for over 20 years, just finished a series of 3 colon hydrotherapy sessions ($85/session) over a 3 week period at Island Health & Beauty Clinique. I may return 1x a month or quarter. On week 2, I started taking 560-1120mg of Activated Charcoal ($9.99/bottle) daily. At end of 3rd session, I began taking Bentonite clay ($12/bottle). I picked up both  the Nature's Way Activated Charcoal and Great Plains Bentonite (liquid) at the Vitamin Shoppe. No bad reaction to either Charcoal or Clay of them and am easing into "detoxifying" my system from pesticides and other chemicals for another 3-4 weeks. In theory, this should help me regain my tolerance for certain chemicals and laundry detergents that are commonplace in American society, building allergies aside.

What I've changed in my diet in the past 3 weeks being vegan for 20+ years:
I've limited my Wheat intake, despite Gluten/Seitan being a major protein source. Switching to fermented Soy in Tempeh and Natto.

Drinking lots of lemon water, sometimes with chocolate mint or mint.
Drinking Aloe gLoe...just because it's low calorie.

Stopped drinking or cut back on Coffee-- since it contains heavy pesticides. Though there are Local Hawaiian coffees that are sold in bags marked "pesticide free" everywhere,  even at the Walmarts on Oahu.

Just a few more weeks to go.
