That is an amazing story, and I am glad your husband is doing well. There is some evidence that the endorphins produced from smoking modulate the immune response. This is why things like chocolate, LDN and chili peppers are hot areas of research right now in the alternate medical arena. I am just worried about
the long term risks of nicotine. I understand that it is keeping his flare at bay, but perhaps he could be transitioned to LDN or cannabis? Also, try adding in Belgian Chocolate for more immune modulation. :)
His GI tried to dismiss it and refused to believe it was the patch that helped him. We know it was.
That would make his GI a moron. This is not unusual in the mainstream medical realm where doctors discount everything that disagrees with their dogma.
