I've noticed the same thing about gluten sensitivity, after not eating gluten for several years, I can now eat small amounts of gluten occassionally, maybe a small amount every few months, without problem. Same applies to some forms of dairy, although I never consume it directly, only occassionally in baked goods.
I used l-glutamine daily for a time as recommended by a doctor to help promote healing. When the intestinal walls become weak and compromised because of food sensitivity issues, you are also open to problems related to leaky gut syndrome, which can cause undigested food particles to enter the blood stream and possibly trigger an immune response.
