7. Get Adequate Fish Oil
Fish oil has omega-3 fatty acids – EPA and DHA – that have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Hence, it is highly beneficial in reducing the inflammation of the intestinal lining.
It coats your intestinal lining and prevents it from becoming inflamed, thereby reducing the chance of a painful flare-up of celiac symptoms when you accidently consume some gluten.
- Take up to 2.6 grams of fish oil (with at least 30 percent EPA/DHA) twice daily. Always consult your doctor before taking fish oil supplements.
- Also, include cold-water fish like tuna and salmon in your diet.
8. Spice Your Food with Paprika
Paprika is an anti-inflammatory agent that can help reduce inflammation in the intestines and reduce the severity of celiac symptoms.
It also aids digestion by normalizing acid in the stomach.
- Add paprika spice in the meals you prepare at home. You can use this spice as a garnish and for seasoning. Be sure to take it in moderation, though.
- You can also take paprika as a supplement, after consulting your doctor.
