Hey, don't this'll be as fun as my other topic!

I've managed to eat some gluten (yet again!) within the last 48 hours. I've had minimal D but quite a lot of gas/bloating/funny noises in my tummy and I'm brain-fogged and down.

I was wondering if any of you know of any helpful action to take rather than just waiting to get over it? I've taken vitamins, echinacea, acidophilus and aloe vera juice (as I do every day) but they don't seem a huge help. Sometimes, when I get really bad D I want to take Imodium but I would have thought that would just keep the gluten in my system longer, potentially doing more damage. Right now, I'd love a dose of colonic irrigation- I've never tried it, but I've started dreaming about it! I wondered if anyone knew of any preparation which helps when you get glutened, and which is a bit more practical in the short term than a colonic!

Thanks for sharing x

I always drink a red bull at the first sign of glutening (I'm having one now!). The caffene brings the energy up to a halfway decent level, and all the b-vitamins help the brainfog. Immediatley after glutening, it's my best weapon. I'm sure the niacin does something good, too. I have problems taking regular vitamins, so it really works for me.

Also a healthy dose of my bentyl and some tylenol help the tummy. I would say immodium is fine.

I wish I had better advice for this one.....I generally end up just suffering through it, but I know some people swear by anything with ginger.....if you get D immodium will help.......and there has been discussion about nuleve for cramping. Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you both! I wasn't sure red bull was gluten-free, I'll try some. I might mention those drugs to my doctor when I next see him.

I've heard a lot about ginger. That's an old Indian remedy for an upset stomach. I'll have a go. :)

I carry cards of immodium in my wallet.

There is a solution which I call the "Roto rooter" technique.

Basically, you eat WAY TOO DAMN MUCH FIBER, and keep eating it. It's like.... ramming a toilet plunger through a garden hose. pushes everything before it. A very large bowl of brown rice seems to work.

So the fiber helps you combat the glutening effect?

I've tried fiber before and it didn't do anything for me once I already had C. A Dr. told me that fiber can actually have the opposite affect if you are already C too......I would procede with caution.

echinacea, if you've been glutened, may not be a good idea, since you are boosting you're immune system, but it's an immune response gone awry that's the problem.

Ooooh! Good point!! Think I'll try fibre as suggested.

GINGER MAKES THINGS WORSE FOR ME.

Ms Sillyak: What's pedilyte? I had to google it. Is it something to do with infants, something meant to help babies? (I'm in Britain- never heard of it). Thanks for the advice, though. It's very welcome! X

Here is a free sample offer

I don't know where this site is from but useful info.

This stuff is a life saver for me. If I'm laying on the bathroon floor after a seizure and steatorrhea diarrhea that has me weak and frail I drink this stuff. It's like a miracle treatment. I keep a bottle un-opened under my bathrrom sink, so I can get to it easy from the floor. When I feel like I'm shaky, or weak or like I have no blood in my veins, this perfoms miracles for me.

Yes, it's for babies. Some other companies make it in the health-food stores, but they have additive I don't want. The one I drink is the un-flavored one (clear). This is better at replacing electrolytes, more so then gatorade or sports drinks. It's expensive $4 or $5 a bottle. But it really really works. TRY IT!

I've been drinking a ton of water... the "D" seems to have stopped but now I am all crampy and bloated and freakin ITCHY!!! at first I couldn't see a rash but now I've got a visible bumpy rash all over my body...

Actually the idea of the heavy fiber to is push everything out of your intestines as quickly as possible. Something like a couple of bowls of brown rice will do that. It won't clean the blood, but the sooner it's out of your intestines the better.
