Anonymous asked: What can you do if you happen to eat non gluten free food by accident, to help settle your body down? My sister has had incidents where a restaurant said a meal was gluten free but then used sauces that made her stomach upset.
Once the gluten gets to the intestinal tract, there’s really no way to go back or reverse the damage. I have found Pepto Bismol and Immodium to be helpful when I have upset stomach, cramps, and diarrhea. Unfortunately I haven’t found any over-the-counter medications to be helpful for bloating or gas! This is a great question for your sister to ask her doctor. They will be more familiar with everything that is available.
I also sometimes find that I need to avoid high-fiber or spicy foods after I get “glutened”. My system seems to be more irritable for a couple days. Every person is different, though, and it’s important generally to eat fiber.
