By removing processed foods from your diet and moving toward an organic whole foods diet, you’ll not only be eliminating a potential source of gluten cross-contamination from your diet—you’ll also be consuming higher nutrient foods with the ability to help your body heal.
Minimize your risks of cross-contamination by doing your homework before you eat out and by following a few simple guidelines.
Taking daily supplements such as magnesium, vitamin D, essential fatty acids, folates, zinc, tryptophan, and glutamine can help replenish critical nutrients you’re lacking due to the damage gluten has done to your stomach and upper intestinal tract.
