His injuries are internal from botched up allopathic treatments! But yes he does want to give up the ole ball and chain and I encourage him for his own peace of mind and to escape from the hands of his perscribing doctors who play god with him!
I believe UT has a profound soothing affect and an abilty to help heal internal damage! I also believe with Megadoses of vitamin C and UT he will increase his fortitude and his bodies abilty to deal with his addiction! I believe stepping out of the box of orthodoxy and safe advice may help him tremendously!
