I saw your message several days ago but was hesitant in answering because my symptoms in the past have been somewhat different. I have Crohn's (hospitalize 4 times). Nevertheless, in approaching any health problems, it would help to look at several factors that may be triggering your body responses. Some factors to consider include unresolved emotional conflicts, allergies (you could be allergic to the fiber, dairy, eggs, soy, etc.), heavy metal toxicity, nutritional defiencies, poor liver function, glandular problems, poor digestive process (you may be taking the wrong kind of enyzmes), chemical toxicity, poor diet, parasites, and silver/mercury fillings. Over the years I have worked on the above factors. This year I finally addressed some major unsolved emotional problems, which has helped. Now, I am working on detoxing my body of heavy metals (lead, cadmuim, nickel,and mercury).
In your case, also consider that the fiber may be actually clogging your system. For information on enzymes, The ENZYME CURE by Lita Lee is good.
I cannot take acidphilious for long periods of time. I do better with a product called Primal Defense, which contains soil-based organisms (another form of good bacteria). You could have low stomach acid. There are many things to look at. Hopefully, you can find a health professional or doctor who knows more about nutrition. If you are near the Washington DC area, I could give you some names.
