Recovery Time After Glutening?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got nailed but good with a crouton crumb in a salad on Sept 20th. I was sick sick for 4 days, throwing up, couldn't eat a thing etc. My stomach felt inflamed and sore with a weird burning sensation that is hard to describe.

Now I'm over 2 weeks out from the initial glutening and I'm still having issues. I can't eat very much at a time, I suddenly will get nauseous in the middle of eating. My stomach bloats a tiny bit every time I eat, especially if I eat fruit. I'm still dealing with D, though it's not bad by any means.

Does anyone have any suggestions to heal my gut up some? I'm really getting a little tired of this! Not to mention hungry... :) Does anyone else have reactions that last this long??

I will be off-balance and sick for a minimum of 3 weeks if I get any gluten of high fructose. Activated charcoal tablets have helped to hurry up the process a bit, by almost 2 weeks. Activated charcoal is an internal cleanser which basically goes in and absorbs randomly. The bottle says to take 2, I take 6 if I fear I had just eaten something like a crumb in your case. If I still feel really bad the next day I'll do it again. I take gasX for the gas and sometimes I have to take Pepto just the ease the yuck in my stomach going on. Not fun, and I am so with you....tired of it, but these things have helped me.

Sounds like you might have a little bit of gut dysbiosis from the throwing up etc. That tends to put all the bacteria etc. out of wack. Have you been taking a good probiotic? That might help things, together with a small amount of Aloe Vera, which is very soothing to the stomach/gut lining.

I have taken a good probiotic in the past, but haven't the last couple of weeks because of traveling. I will start that up again when I return home!

Thanks for the activated charcoal idea. I will definitely test that! :) I'm sorry to hear your reactions are so long too. Kinda a bummer to go through that for a baby crumb.
