    As an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) I would be interested to know what the ‘issues’ are that you're having and depending on what they are and their severity there may be some allergy tests that could help determine what it is that is causing them.  At this early stage I would suggest you seek advice from a medical professional and/or an APD with a special interest in food intolerances/allergies.  Try the Dietitians Association of Australia website daa.asn.au or for food specific information try fedup.com.au.

    I agree with Suzanne, often the problem is not the foods you are currently eating, it's the fact that your gut is not functioning properly. Work on getting your digestion right! You can consult your GP and have them refer you for the Heidleberg test, which is expensive and rather unpleasant, however, it will give you very precise numbers for your stomach pH. There is a low tech method of testing for hypochloridia as well developed by Dr Myatt in the United States (see link below for this test). She recommends taking Betaine HCL (supplement) for a time with meals and see if it changes anything for you, if it does you most likely have hypochloridia.

    Must be very frustrating for you!

    Depending on the “issues” you are having there are a few different approaches you can use. Primarily the help of a GP or an Accredited Practising Dietitian can help narrow down the problem and lead you towards appropriate treatment.
