After discovering the wellness benefits of essential oils and using them for over 9 months I have realized they can help in many areas of my life. Essential Oils have been able to help my digestive issues associated with Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance.
Essential Oils that help with a Gluten Attack:
After being diagnosed with Celiac Disease I avoid gluten 100%. If I get accidentally “glutened” I am able to turn to essential oils and they give me some relief while the gluten is being processed through my body. I recently went out to eat and was told that the food that I was served was gluten free. Within minutes of taking the first bite I knew I had been “glutened”.
I immediately use peppermint oil by rubbing it on my belly and am able to receive relief almost instantly. I followed up with several additional doses and I was able to stop the gluten attack from spiraling into a week long attack that it normally would be. The key for me is using it quickly!
I also use Peppermint Oil by rubbing it on my temples and forehead to help calm me and with the headache that I normally get when eating gluten. I use Ginger Essential Oil for immediate nausea. I also used Lavender Essential Oil for peace and calming.
I have also discovered that Apple Cider Vinegar REALLY helps me too! I use that in combination with the essential oils. Read this post for more details.
I hope this helps someone else who is in the same boat as me! I carry these oils in my purse at all times. All of these essential oils should NOT be ingested. When I use them I use them all topically and aromatically.
