Detoxing From Gluten

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was officially diagnosed with Celiac Disease yesterday after a gluten challenge. I'm now experiencing detox symptoms, flu-like feeling, headaches, fatigue, grumpiness. Is there anything I can do to lessen the side effects?

Hi Kathrynl,

Drink a lot of water to flush the system, pepto to soothe the tummy and ibuprophin or tylenol for the pain, other than that try to lay down and rest if you can.

You can try a detox soak in the tub I read about in a book about autoimmune diseases: 1 cup Epsom Salt, 1/2 cup baking soda in the hottest water you can stand.

Non-caffeinated herbal teas seem to help. If you have nausea, a friend suggested phenergan suppositories. I was amazed how it helped with the nausea. My doctor was reluctant to prescribe it, and I didn't fill the prescription until today, four months later. I'm glad I gave it a whirl. (I had a mistake two days ago with dairy, which is as bad for me as gluten is...hopefully just for the time being.)

Good luck Katherine, things will get so much better! :)
