We're all guinea pigs in this. Nobody can tell you the optimum method. I'm virtually 50/50 on what to do next. The possibilities are:
1) Both strategies would work.
2) One strategy would work.
3) Neither strategy would work.
I certainly would not advocate waiting until you reach peak cycle, since I can testify that they are much harder to shift when you are getting hit by 8 x #9 every day :(
Personally I would wait until you are getting hit every day, and sometimes more than once a day. Or until you are getting hit by what we call "saire eens" here in Aberdeen - attacks that are painful enough to debilitate.
A couple of Kip 3s a week is such an improvement over your previous situation that I imagine you'd settle for those quite happily, provided they were guaranteed not to get worse.
We've seen from Graham (also a chronic) that things can take weeks to settle down.
Pinky - I thought it best to adopt the opposite position to yours, since if we both recommended the same approach Carl would be more tempted do it, and if anything went wrong we'd both feel like shit!!! I could quite easily have taken the same viewpoint.
