Whether you are new to paleo or have been eating this way for a while, a common question is: how long does it take the gut to heal after gluten exposure?
This is a very relevant question for those who are just embarking on their gluten-free journey. But, it’s also extremely important for anyone who has been following a paleo/primal/gluten-free diet for a while, but has been inadvertently exposed to gluten. It sometimes feels as though the longer we avoid gluten, the more sick we feel after accidentally eating some. This is in large part because the body stops protecting itself from gluten (for example, there may be less mucus in the gut) so when we do consume some, we are defenseless. It may also be because we forget how we used to feel and are so used to feeling so much healthier.
