Now Is The Time to Understand Your Symptoms and Take Control of Your Health

There has never been a more important time to quickly become as healthy as you can be.

By healthy, I do not mean barely able to drag yourself through the day, only to collapse in front of the TV after work.

I mean vibrant and strong, and energetic during the day and able to sleep at night.

It is time to know how to recognize when you have a problem and understand how to fix it.

  1. Know the gluten-free diet inside and out and how to adapt it to meet your needs.
  2. Reduce Inflammation by eating certain foods and avoiding others.
  3.  Correcting your ongoing nutrient deficiencies and health conditions.
  4. Addressing your medications, so you know which ones may be impacting your health in ways you did not realize.
  5. Incorporating supplements that you need to meet your individual nutritional requirements.
  6. Incorporating natural remedies that boost your health.

These six steps are crucial to your health and they are all contained in the Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide.

The Treatment Guide grew out of our groundbreaking medical reference, Recognizing Celiac Disease, which was the first to list and detail over 300 signs, symptoms, associated disorders and complications. Endorsed by physicians at Harvard, Columbia, University of Chicago, Jefferson Medical College and other esteemed institutions.

The Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide is unique. The information it contains is accurate, comprehensive and based on documented medical research.

It is easy to use. Once you sign up, emails and tutorials will guide you along the way

Become as healthy as you can be, as you should be, in days, not weeks or months.

Survey: What Were the Symptoms That Made You Search for an Answer? Did They Improve Once You Went Gluten-Free?

Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are related to over 300 signs, symptoms, associated disorders and complications.

Symptoms differ for everyone. One person might have gastrointestinal problems. Another might have a mental disorder, without any gut issues. Bones, skin, reproduction, muscles – any body system and organ can be affected.

What To Do The Next Time You Get Glutened

You are at a restaurant with friends.

You order the hamburger with a gluten-free bun, making sure to emphasize that the bun must be gluten-free.

The waiter reassures you that they handle these types of requests all the time.

The bussers bring out the food.

Your burger looks delicious.

The cole slaw that you ordered instead of the fries, because the fryer is not dedicated to gluten-free foods, looks scrumptious.

You bring the burger up to your mouth.

Just as you chomp down, you notice out of the corner of your eye that your friend’s non-gluten-free burger has the exact same bun as your burger.

As you complete your bite you see your waiter running toward you waving frantically……

The bun is a regular gluten bun!

Aaaaigh!!!!!

What do you do?

This exact scenario happened to me. (My waiter didn’t come running but he did apologize profusely.)

I’m going to give you two options depending on whether you swallowed or not.  

And no. Saying “oh well” and enjoying the yummy burger with the gluten bun is not one of the options.

OPTION 1: IF YOU DID NOT SWALLOW

Do not swallow!

Spit the bite into your napkin. If they didn’t provide napkins, spit it on the plate, floor or wherever, so long as you get it out of your mouth. This is not the time to worry about etiquette. Get that gluten out!

Immediately walk to the restroom. Bring your water glass.

In the bathroom, rinse your mouth several times, swishing the water between your teeth. Do this until your mouth is completely clean.

Gargle with the water to make sure no particles are on the back of your tongue. Spit it out.

Do the following step as soon as possible.

Get Alka Seltzer Gold. Drop two tablets into a glass of water and drink it, rinsing out your mouth with the concoction before you swallow. (Buy a box today and keep a pack with you.)

If you cannot get access to Alka Selzter Gold…

Put ½ tsp of baking soda in 6 oz of water.

Rinse your mouth, swishing between your teeth.

Swallow the rest of the glass of baking soda water.

Alka Selzter Gold contains baking soda. Baking soda is alkaline. It inhibits protein digestion. It also dampens immune reaction.

If you have a true allergy to gluten, immediately take a Benadryl and call your doctor depending on the severity of the allergy.  

OPTION 2: IF YOU SWALLOWED. (GASP!)

Spit whatever you have in your mouth into your napkin.

Immediately walk to the restroom. Bring your water glass.

This part sucks, but if you can do it, you’ll avoid pain and suffering.

Make yourself throw up.

I know it sounds extreme, but it is way better than the alternative.

I’ve been in two situations, one where I barfed it out, one where I didn’t.

(Yakking into the bushes at a family picnic wasn’t any fun, but it was way better than feeling absolutely awful for over a week while on vacation.)  

In the bathroom, rinse your mouth several times, swishing the water between your teeth. Do this until your mouth is completely clean.

Gargle with the water to make sure no particles are on the back of your tongue. Spit it out.

Do the following step as soon as possible.

Get Alka Seltzer Gold. Drop two tablets into a glass of water and drink it, rinsing out your mouth with the concoction before you swallow. (Buy a box today and keep a pack with you.)

If you cannot get access to Alka Selzter Gold…

Put ½ tsp of baking soda in 6 oz of water.

Rinse your mouth, swishing between your teeth.

Swallow the rest of the glass of baking soda water.

Repeat the Alka Seltzer Gold or baking soda remedies three times a day for the next 3 to 5 days depending on symptoms.

I found if I stop on the second day, my symptoms rear up again.

OTHER REMEDIES

  • Take a gluten-digesting enzyme. These enzymes help to completely break down the protein structure. It is the partially digested gluten that triggers an immune reaction.
  • Take a multivitamin/multimineral. You will most likely suffer some degree of malabsorption over the next week or two, so you want to replenish.
  • Activated charcoal is another remedy that may help when taken as soon as you ingest the gluten. Activated charcoal is taken as a pill. It binds to whatever you have eaten and carries it out of the body.
  • HYDRATE. Drink. Drink. Drink. Staying hydrate is critical, especially if you are suffering from gastrointestinal symptoms, like diarrhea. Hydration is important for every system in your body, especially if the gluten has triggered an immune reaction.
  • Be careful when exercising. I find I am most likely to suffer an injury immediately after being cross contaminated.

I hope this helps you avoid pain and suffering if you ever find yourself in this situation. (Hopefully, you won’t!)
