What are your best tips for overcoming being glutened?

10 Replies

Everyone has their own solution to being glutened. What tips work for you when you have been glutened? Ginger tea for anti-nausea, tonic water? Painkillers?

Ginger or peppermint tea for the first day add in some boiled rice in the second day a hot water bottle and some TLC


steamed veg and bananas


I think that less is better so I just drink water for the first 24 hours and sleep as much as possible. I find even drinking tea just upsets my stomach even more so let my immune system get on with it.

And then avoid rich and spicy foods for a couple of days.


i dont have pain but feel tiered but just drink water dont think i got it as bad as some and recover very quike takes me 2days


I agree with the others, Drink lots of water and rest up lots.

It depends on how bad the glutening is.....

When I was OD'd on it abroad, I collapsed and went to a homeopath, it took 3 weeks treatment.


I just drink lots of very warm water, sometimes with a slice of lemon in it. Plus hot bag/hot water bottle helps too.


Depends on the severity- when its mild I just feel like I have a bad hangover for a couple of days, so do all the usual stuff like lots to drink, sleep etc. But it has been so painful in the past that the pain was so intense I literally couldnt stand up, with blinding headache and all the other symptons we all knwow about.So then I do all of the above plus painkillers and take some pro biotics too. Happily -that doesnt happen anymore.


Went on holiday recently and ate most of a packet of processed meat containing wheat gluten accidentally because neither of us read the (tiny) ingredients label. After one night of bloatedness and sleeplessness I carried on eating and drinking normally, so the wine that I drank the following day( I was on holiday!) maybe blanked out out any further effects of being glutened, apart from a dose of the trots which lasted a day. Maybe a hangover and the effects of being glutened feel similar.


I think just straight back on a strict gluten free diet asap. Although my tummy is tender for a few days after vomiting so I am quite gentle with it and rest it for a while first with just water..


i have bad belly cramps,and my skin flares up really bad for weeks, my son who has downs syndrome, and needs to be near a loo ,his knees at the bk flare up an become so sore,and he also becomes tired an cannot eat for a few days,we both suffer badly with dh,an takes weeks to recover just a bit of gluten makes us ill.
