How To Recover After Gluten Exposure
Despite all the improvements in the gluten-free marketplace, one thing hasn’t changed, there is always a possibility of being exposed to gluten.
When you eliminate gluten from your diet, re-exposure may lead to unpleasant reaction when you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
Some people find that they may recover within few days others with Celiac disease may experience serious setbacks.
Regardless what your symptoms are here are some helpful steps that may speed up your recovery.
Drink plenty of water ~ water assists of removal of toxins and waste from your body. So hydrate and hydrate more!
Drink bone broth ~ it is rich in minerals and other nutrients that are soothing to your digestive system and nourishing to your entire body and eat only easily digestible foods.
Add Digestive enzymes to your diet ~ they help with digestions and may help to digest your food and help alleviate your symptoms of bloating or gas
Have Epsom salt baths ~ the sulphate minerals in Epsom salts are detoxifying.
Drink Ginger or peppermint tea ~ both relieve nausea and soothe the digestive system.
Drink Nettle tea ~ contains natural antihistamine properties. Nettle tea also has a gentle diuretic effect, which may help with detoxification.
Include Fermented food in your diet ~ they contain probiotics that balance your gut flora, which play a large role in your immune system. With fermented foods it is important to start slowly, my favourite is sauerkraut.
Use Activated charcoal ~ Activated charcoal may help by binding with the offending food and preventing it from being absorbed by the body. If you are taking medication consult your physician first since it can bind with medications
Avoid dairy, anything artificial, processed foods, sugar, fats, red meats, alcohol, carbonated drinks and coffee!
And most importantly get extra rest and sleep, because when you sleep your body repairs itself and does natural detoxification.
