Hi,

I would appreciate help with knowing how other people react to the healing process after a gluten ingestion, especially how long it generally takes them to heal.

Three weeks ago I accidentally ingested some gluten. By late afternoon I started to get sick. All the usual cramping, bloating, gurgling and lots of belching, followed by diarrhea the next morning. This continued for 2 weeks. My doctor put me on a mild fast to help rest my digestion. This really helped and even stopped the diarrhea. But every time I try to introduce solid protein I get the symptoms back, except for the diarrhea.

I have been gluten free for 8 months. I have made great progress in lots of areas, I still have some diarrhea, but I think it might be related to food allergies for which I am getting tested.

I would really appreciate hearing what others have experienced and what they did to heal themselves. I know that we are all different, but I don't know what is going on with my healing. I am so grateful for this site, it has helped me so much not to feel so alone.

After an accident, it can take up to 8 weeks to fully recover. Having been gluten-free for 8 months, your body has decided that it really likes being gluten-free! It causes the reactions to be worse, and take longer to get over. Hang in there, it will pass.
