Dear Sean
I am so sorry to hear that you have so many medical problems. From a dietary point of view, it is essential that anyone with multiple conditions should consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will be able to compile an individual diet prescription for you that will at least help you with the spastic colon and high acidity. This is not something I can do for you over the Internet.
So please do contact a dietitian ASAP.
Best regards
