Been wondering about herbs that would be helpful in supporting recovery/soothing symptoms of gluten exposure for those of us with either celiac or non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Demulcents, like mallow, perhaps? A GI-active anti inflammatory like plantain? What think you, gentle people?

Turmeric and ginger are the herbs you will want to use.  A tea made from either of them will help.

I use a quality ginger ale.  I keep it in the fridge for when I need it.  It might lose it fizz but is still helpful.

The are recipes for a ginger bug or ginger beer that also will help.

Papaya seed is definitely right up at the top of the list for treating gluten exposure.

Mmm, ginger beer. I could do that.

Tell me more about papaya seeds. I’ve not used them before.
 
Being a smart alec beats the alternative. This tiny ad knows what I'm talking about:
