Hi..I'm assuming he had Crohn's Colitis...but it sounds better when he says he had both.
One thing he mentions that's interesting is to not focus on the disease itself....a good point.
He doesn't mention the word cure. A good thing, because there isn't one.
The cause......???? Take what you will of it.
Take information that makes sense and throw the rest out of the window.
Medications for IBD are important....not all are equal...there are options. Don't know if he's suggesting for them to be discontinued.
We all get to the point where we find the balance to better health....he's still living with CD, but hasn't got symptoms. Symptoms are subjective....
Let us know how it goes for you.
