This may be a really dumb question but a co-worker got REALLY upset with me when I told her about how I ate a little gluten last night and became incredibly ill. She told me that I had chosen to make my self gluten intolerant by choosing this life... (more)

Paleo can make you gluten intolerant in the same way that quitting smoking can make you tobacco intolerant. Years ago, I smoked half a pack a day and "felt fine". Now if I smoke one or two, I feel like death for two days. We do get desensitized... (more)

Cupcakes were offered at work the other day and I couldn't resist. It doesn't happen all that often, fortunately, and usually I'm not that badly affected. Ideally in future I might prime myself for these events by eating extremely tasty paleo food... (more)

Sorry, no such luck. Second having a gluten-free snack as an alternative. And keep in mind that gluten stays in the system for awhile, so if you are gluten-sensitive or intolerant, and you "cheat" even occasionally, you are just perpetuating the... (more)

Which of these two best describes how you react to gluten exposure? A) You are either "glutened" or "not-glutened." You notice the symptoms no matter how much you have eaten. B) You can eat small amounts of gluten with no... (more)

Like PaleoChimp said, I notice symptoms no matter how much I've eaten, but the larger the dose, the worse and longer acting the symptoms. Small doses (crumbs, etc) equate to diarrhea and sour stomach for several days, usually. A larger dose (a... (more)

I'm fairly positive I am gluten intolerant (lots of gas, bloating, headaches, fatigue and BAD moods from the rare pizza or beer binge) and I do go off the bandwagon occasionally for a meal or two. Of course I've only tested negative for Celiac's... (more)

Hi all I was wondering if there is anything that can be done to help reverse accidental gluten exposure? I work in a restaurant and am usually pretty good about asking how my dinners are prepared but last night I ordered something and... (more)

In a word - no. What is done is done and what's in must come out! Peppermint or ginger tea help settle your stomach a little, the temper is due to hormal imbalances and has to work its self out. Rest and pamper yourself for 24-48 hours is the... (more)

What works for me: drink a lot of water. You can have bone broth as well if you like, but most important is to keep hydrated. Herbal teas, like peppermint or chamomile are good too. These teas are both calming, but if you are feeling heartburn,... (more)

I've been paleo going on a month and I've found that, no matter what, once a week I have a cheat meal. Not on purpose, it just works out that way. Anyway, I was wondering what kind of an effect these cheats could have? They're usually all out... (more)
