He was cured, yes...as long as he avoided nitrite/nitrates (? not sure which, but that sort of name).
He fell off his diet once, I believe, because he was at a party (an unscheduled eating place which they hadn't accounted for) and he had a hotdog but thankfully he only suffered a minor headache which was enough of a reminder.
The parents sat on tenterhooks always expecting the next vicious migraine whilst he ate the elimination diet but there never was one, they just ceased overnight.
If only the medical profession bothered to use the resources at hand maybe people wouldn't need to consume so many meds and, as shown, diet could be manipulated in some cases, at least.
