I'm on the same page as you with all this. It's really hard to isolate the 2. I don't know your history, you'd need to evaluate that for potential for adhesion production.
I can tell you one thing from my own experience though -- if it's intermittent, it's less likely it's adhesion based (unless you eat something that is hugely fiberous only every 6mo)
with my adhesion problems I had no break at all from partial obstructions for 2 years, was on a straight liquid diet for 2 years, they got one adhesion (I've had 4 abodiminal surgeries) which made things much easier, but I'm still on a partially liquid diet...
if a diet helps you and you can tie your obstuctions to what you ate, it'd be way more holistic to just be careful of what you eat...
also, not to be negative, but surgeons in my experience hate to deal with adhesion stuff because it's hard to find and hard to figure out.
all the best!
