All those authors you cite have something to offer, though each suffers from an overdose of "reductionism".
With regard to type B's, fatigue is generally a problem which is corrected by the ABO diet, as the fatigue in type B's is generally "nervous" as opposed to "metabolic". B's do metabolize carbs better than type O and in certain circumstances do rather well on them.
Licorice tea (any form) is the equivalent of licorice root tea, though the book also draws a distinction between licorice "extract" used by naturopaths, "DGL", a form of licorice made by removing one ingredient know to cause water retention and beneficial for ulcers, and licorice tea. In general the tea can be used to great effect by most people. Be aware of water retention with continued use though.
As regards to lower immunity, yeast, etc. I do use a softer approach, typically caprylic acid etc. in lieu of the more pharmaceutical stuff because the diet is going to do most of the work. Look at it like this: The diet improves the bowel balance, which "crowds out" the yeast.
I'm glad to hear of your interest in the field. We need all the good people we can get.
