    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I'm VERY new to this website and relatively new to Celiac Disease. My Holistic Health Professional (who has changed my life for the better) told me that my symptoms sounded like Celiac Disease and that I should stay off gluten. I have, as far as I know, for almost two months and every day feel better and better. I'm continually refining my understanding of what I can and cannot eat. For example, "wheat grass" I thought would be harmless. A superfood, and totally different looking than regular wheat. Well, I was definitely wrong. Last night I had one of the worst asthma attacks I've ever had and today I feel like I have the flu and an elephant is sitting on my chest. I had some of the juice yesterday afternoon, this morning, and about an hour ago before I started doing my online research and discovered all of the connections (I had no idea that my adult-onset asthma could be linked to my celiac disease). Needless to say I'm very much regretting my oversight and want desperately to get back to my new state of "normal" (which is a thousand times better than pre-self-diagnosis state of normal). Please let me know how long the average recovery period is for a case of accidental "glutening". Does anyone have any recommendations on what I can do to cleanse my system? Or will I just have to wait it out with lots of water???

Your reaction to wheat grass sounds like a bonafide allergy. With a glutening everyone reacts differently and takes different amounts of time to recover. It is the same for me. Depends how much I have been glutened and as to how long it takes for me to recover.

how long you take to recover is pretty unique to you. I've heard people say anything from two days to two weeks. (or a bit longer.) not much to do but sit it out, and eat healthy.

My reactions vary. They can last for a few days or they can last for about two weeks. When I am very sick, I find that the best thing for me is to fast until I start feeling better.
