Interesting point Q. I can share this with you. In 19 years of episodic CH I've only gone twice, more than 10 months at a time without them. One of the times, as noted below, I dtopped smoking and was jogging about 5 miles daily. The other time: I moved from Fla. to Ct for aperiod of 2 yrs., still smoked and kept being the same lazy (exercise-wise) person as I was while living in Fla.. However, the CH stopped for the entire time that I lived there. CH returned when I moved to NC :(.
While living in CT, my boss there, who also suffered from CH (we shared our experiences repeatedly to see if we could find some commonalities. The big question was - why did mine [CH] stopped? with the only major change being moving to CT) postulated that it [CH] may have something to do with the severity of weather fronts, i.e.: sudden and drastic barometric pressure changes, daylight exposure, as well as the effect of differences in magnetic fields from earth at different latitudes. It seemed like a crazy idea them. What do you know...when CH returned upon my moving to NC, I started paying more attention to weather fronts. He was right! at least about the weather fronts. I have no way of measuring magnetic fields and tiny differences in daylight during gradual seasonal changes.
Where is this post going? I don't know. Just wanted you to know that I've heard that before. Perhaps it merits looking into it. I don't know how he came to those conclusions 14 years ago.
