Accidentally ingesting gluten unfortunately happens from time to time and mostly it just takes time to heal and get back to feeling better. Everyone is different when it comes to how little (just touching something with gluten) to eating something contaminated with gluten. And each time one ingests gluten, it will attack and damage your small intestine. So it is important to “flush” it out as quickly as possible.
Here are some things that have helped me personally to get over an accidental incident of gluten.
- Drink lots of Water!!! Water will be a huge help with getting it to flush out of your system.
- Eat fruits, especially things like papaya (Helps digest proteins)
- “Gluten Defense” pills. (This is something I believe that does help me when I get glutened, however it is not FDA approved, nor is it a substitute for eating gluten..it is not a magic pill! But it is supposed to help with digestion and breaking down the gluten proteins)
