Despite all the precautions I take when eating out by choosing restaurants who pride themselves in using local, organic, sustainable ingredients and offer gluten-free options, I recently suffered from gluten exposure. I got "glutened" through cross-contamination at one of my favorite restaurants. Aside from the immediate reaction (tongue swelling, bloating, cramping), I also endured various side effects (headache, acne, fatigue, insomnia, etc.) for many days afterwards, which lowered my immunity to the point of catching a nasty cold days later that I am still recovering from.
To counter-act the damaging effect of gluten on my guts, my favorite go-to cures include Nature's Way Charcoal, Activated right after exposure, to first remove the poison or offender. I wait a couple of hours since charcoal absorbs everything on its way, and then take 3 pellets of homeopathic Boiron - Histaminum Hydrochlo 30c, 30c, 80 pellets and Bluebonnet Super Quercetin - 90 Vegetarian Capsules.
Over the following days, I drink anti-inflammatory Pukka Herbal Teas Three Ginger Caffeine Free, 20 Count and Numi Organic Tea Turmeric Blends Sampler (Pack of 3) teas, and Traditional Medicinals Teas Organic Throat Coat Tea, 16 Bags which contain licorice, marshmallow root, slippery elm. I take plenty of Garden of Life Primal Defense ULTRA, 60 Capsules , Garden of Life - Omega Zyme Ultra Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend and Nordic Naturals - Ultimate Omega, 1000 mg, 60 softgels. I also add NOW Foods L-Glutamine Pure Powder, 1-Pound , NOW Foods - Chlorella Pure Powder Certified Organic , Now Foods, ORGANIC SPIRULINA POWDER, 1LB and Lily Of The Desert - 100% Organic Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice - 32 oz. in my smoothies, drink bone broth, green juice and soups and get plenty of rest.
How do you cope with the symptoms?
