Do You Look Like This After Being Glutened?

Recommended Posts

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v400/Tbr...93/IMG_2049.jpg

this is me after being cc'd and it was my own fault! What can I do to speed up the recovery process. I leave for Vegas on Thursday and I really don't want to look and feel like this when I go on vacation! Someone told me to but Vit E on my eye. will that help it heal? I've also heard some people on this forum talk about probotics, they say they get over their symtoms quicker while taking it, is that right? HELP!

Yeah the only I can think of would be probiotics. You can take a theraputic dose (50 billions organisms) and hopefully that will help!

Good luck!

I can't really tell if you are experiencing swelling, because I don't know what you normally look like, but if it's swollen, try a benadryl. Also ice and cucumbers are good for swelling. I would get as much rest as you can. I do take probiotics but I haven't really had a terrible glutening so I don't know if it makes a difference for me.

Best of luck, and you really don't look that bad.

Try Red Bull. Its a strong liquid burst of vitamins and caffeine. It can do wonders for a glutening, at least for me it does.

That's good to know! I usually gravitate towards sugar and then that makes me feel worse of course (stomach bloating/gas). I normally don't drink energy drinks, but it sounds like it might do the trick if I'm glutened. Thanks for the tip!

Be careful with vitamin E--it can be derived from wheat. Not always, but you do need to check on the brand you want to use.

I look very pale when glutened--and my forehead breaks out a little. I usually avoid caffeine, but when glutened, I have natural cola (Boylan's) that has some caffeine and it helps that dragged-down, tired feeling.

Can't tell from the pic what's going on with your eye, but if it's irritated I'd use a warm washcloth--lay down and place it over your eyes.

Yep - that's me on gluten !

I look ill - dark circles under my eyes and that puffiness. For me it (partly) comes from my sinuses. Exercise helps me cope and helps with water retention/puffiness (if your gut is ok with it). I work at a pool & the chlorine in the air aggravates glutened sinuses something terrible - if I'm glutened and need to work I take a decongestant/allergy pill too or I end up with a huge headache that goes down to my shoulders. Ugh.
