Unfortunately there isn't much that we can do once the gluten reaction starts. I find Pepto Bismal helps with the stomach pain I get and I take for sure gluten-free asprin to help with the inflammation. Drinking lots of water might help but for the most part for me time is the true healer.
You may want to avoid restaurants for a bit till you have healed more. Also if you can go with unprocessed whole foods that are naturally gluten free that will help also.

It can't hurt. It's only bad for you if you have kidney or liver problems, otherwise, it only has health benefits. The only side effect is that it's been known to reduce appetite for starch and sugar (which is in fact another reason it's used - to help dieters and alcoholics reduce cravings).
Started having fructose-related problems in late 2008.
Started noticing gluten-related symptoms around March 2009.
Discovered the problem and went (mostly) gluten-free in early August 2009. Promptly became hungry all the time.
I can tolerate fructose again now.
Went dairy-lite in mid December 2009, then casein-free in early January 2010. Hunger shot up again twice.
Hunger apparently mostly normal in mid February 2010.
Started taking fish oil in July 2010, then got new symptoms. Got different new symptoms when I stopped, and hunger shot up AGAIN.

Ginger tea and yogurt to aid with digestion.
Exercise to release toxins and aid in digestions.
Warm bath with Epsom salt toxins.
Don't know why, but they do help me!

Vitacost.com has diet and sport aids on special, and there are a few options for L-Glutamine. I couldn't find any locally, but I think I might like to try it and keep it around in case of future glutenings.
Are there other benefits to using it? I'm a lot carb-er anyhow, so I don't eat starch or sugars!
