I'm still tweaking my diet, but here are a few solid conclusions:

Gluten = bad for me - it makes me very sick. You do not want details.
Peppers (chili peppers, bell peppers, red peppers, cayenne) = even worse than gluten - oh, my goodness, the rash, the swelling, the inflammation, the nausea.
Sugar = bad for me - sadly, this one gives me mood swings and increases my hunger.
Nightshades - bad for me - related to peppers (most peppers are nightshades) but not all nightshades are so severe. Tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, paprika, and pimentos appear to give me eczema.

Still up for debate:

I've been eating all of those, and clearly something is still not right. At the moment I'm eliminating pork, to see if that's the culprit. I hope that's the culprit, because I don't want it to be any of the others...

Eeep. I would not be strong enough to have been able to determine the above nor live with it. Ugh. Sweetie, I'm so sorry.

there is a book...

It's called Eat, Taste, Heal and it helps you find your aruvedic dosha. The Pitta balancing diet calls for eliminating all nightshades, sugar and peppers. The results of an out of balance Pitta (according to the book) are rashes, swelling, inflammation, etc.

I know that following the Pitta balancing diet has been really good for me lately. YMMV.

You know I could cope with losing most of the things on your list (I wouldn't want to but I could live with it).

But peppers? That would be real struggle - they form the core of so much of my cooking in different forms! I don't envy you at all...
