Whether it was a hidden ingredient in a restaurant dish or a mislabeled product at the grocery store, getting "glutened" can be a frustrating setback for anyone with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

As tough as it is, there are things you can do to help you bounce back.

Check out these tips and tricks to soothe your symptoms, regain your strength, and get back to feeling your vibrant, healthy self once again.

9 Tips to Recover from Gluten Exposure:

Tip # 1 - Hydrate

Drink plenty of water or oral rehydration solutions like pedialyte or hydralyte, especially if you are experiencing vomiting or diarrhea.

Tip # 2 - Take a warm bath

A warm bath with Epsom salts and essential oils can help relax your body and provide an opportunity for quiet relaxation.

Warm heat can help soothe your aches and pains.

Tip # 4 - Take Pain Medicine

If you're experiencing pain that can't be managed with the tips above, try an over the counter pain medicine for temporary relief.

Tip # 5- Try Anti-Nausea Medicine

If you're feeling nauseous or vomiting, try an anti-nausea medicine like Gravol.

Tip # 6- Sip Soothing Tea

Warm herbal teas like ginger, peppermint or chamomile can be very soothing and hydrating.

Tip # 7 - Get Plenty of Rest

Allow yourself time off to rest and recover. It is essential to get you feeling your best and back on your feet.

Tip # 8 - Choose Bland Foods

Try easy to digest, bland foods like white rice, bananas, or GF crackers, especially if you're nauseous, vomiting or experiencing diarrhea.

Tip # 9 - Give Yourself Grace

Don't beat yourself up. Having Celiac Disease is hard! You're doing the best you can. Mistakes happen, and getting angry doesn't help with your recovery. Focus your energy towards feeling better.
