11 Steps to Decrease Suffering from Gluten Allergies

First of all, you first need to know what foods should be avoided if you want to avoid cravings. You should also take the time to read labels before consuming any product that might contain gluten (wheat, barley, rye). It’s easier than ever today for manufacturers to change their recipes without changing the packaging; this means that your favorite brand may now contain something that could cause serious health problems for you! The following steps will guide you to living a healthier life with gluten allergies.

1. Find Allergens Present In Daily-Use Products.

Find out if there are any of the 8 major allergens present in your cosmetics, skincare products, hair care products, or household cleaners. If so switch to fragrance-free brands which are safer for people with allergies and chemical sensitivities. This will help decrease mucous congestion by limiting exposure to chemicals that can irritate your sinuses. For more information on what ingredients to look for see lists of common allergens here, here, and here.

2. Use Tablets.

Swallow one capsule of activated charcoal at bedtime each night for three weeks. The carbon binds with environmental toxins, including heavy metals, chemicals, and pesticides, and carries them out of your system. This is an inexpensive way to help eliminate chemicals from your body.

3. Make A List Of Gluten-Containing Foods

Make a list of gluten-containing foods you commonly eat and cross them off the list one by one. Usually, people find that a few items account for most of their exposure to gluten (for example wheat in bread, pasta, cereal).

4. Drink Apple Cider Vinegar Mixed With Water

Drink apple cider vinegar mixed with water twice daily for three weeks to bind to environmental toxins including heavy metals and chemicals which are eliminated from the body through normal bowel movements or perspiration during exercise. You can add a small amount of natural sweetener such as Stevia if desired.

5. Find The Material Made From Organic Material

Look for products made from organic materials when possible. Why? Not only are you supporting a non-harmful environment, but there is a chemical difference between organic and conventional products. Conventional products often contain harsh chemicals, which can trigger your immune system, while organic materials have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

6. Take A Diet Containing Lean Protein

Eat a diet with lots of lean protein like organic chicken, white fish, and wild-caught salmon; drink at least 8 glasses of pure water daily; and take one good multivitamin supplement each day that contains zinc, selenium, chromium picolinate (optional), and extra B vitamins (the most important). Make sure your multi doesn’t contain iron as it can irritate the stomach lining. If you don’t eat seafood for ethical reasons consider taking Krill Oil which helps balance your omega 3 to 6 ratio. A healthy diet rich in fresh vegetables will also help you maintain a healthy digestive tract where 80% of your immune system resides.

7. Use Green Tea

Drink green tea twice daily for three weeks. The polyphenols in green tea have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties which can help with autoimmune reactions.

8. Use a Probiotic Supplement

Take a good quality probiotic supplement once a day for three weeks to promote healthy bacteria growth in the intestinal tract and decrease inflammation of the GI system which is common with gluten allergies.

9. Take Help From Holistic Practitioners

Investigate holistic practitioners or licensed acupuncturists who can suggest ways to deal with stress that will not harm your body such as deep breathing, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, etc…

10. Use A Gluten-Free Diet

Commit to sticking with it! Maintaining a gluten-free diet takes dedication but there are many delicious foods you can eat including pastured eggs from happy chickens, grass-fed beef, wild-caught fish, lots of fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, healthy oils like coconut oil or olive oil for cooking, gluten-free flours if you want to bake your treats, chocolates made with organic beans, etc…

11. Done Different Allergy Test

Get six allergy test panels done by any licensed practitioner who understands how foods interact with their patients’ systems.
