Holly, I remember your post from before... I think your situation is kind of complex so your question is difficult to answer. If I were you, I would get a saliva cortisol test (4 samples in a day) to see where your cortisol levels are. (You can get this through www.canaryclub.org.)

The body has an innate ability to heal itself; provided you reduce your stresses, eliminate any foods which may be causing your stress (refined carbs for instance or food allergies/intolerances) and maintain a good healthy diet/lifestyle (and possibly a supplement regimen if necessary), it shouldn't take too long. I'm hesitant to give you an exact time-frame though because it is a complex problem and everyone is different.

I think the easiest and most effective thing you can do though, is to clean up your diet. Find out what gives you energy and makes you feel well long-term and stick to it. You'd be amazed at what your "ideal diet" can do for you once you figure it out.
