Dear Dr. Zhao-Hua Zhong et.al.,
I am forty-four years old and have had the disease the Japanese have
called "Low Natural Killer Cell Disease" with remissions and milder
periods since 1961. In Japan this was associated with the dropping of
the Atomic Bomb, and in America it is associated with nuclear research
and atomic bomb testing. Since the late 1970s, there have been a
rising number of cases in the United States, which seem to be
initiated by a virus. The majority of cases started in 1989 or later.
I do not remember an instance of failing to contract a cold to which
I was heavily exposed.
At Christmas I was heavily exposed to a cold by a friend, which I did
not contract. Since I was trying not to get sick instead of
conducting an experiment, I took a wide variety of herbs, some of them
Chinese. I took Colloidal Silver, a teaspoon in the morning and a
teaspoon at night, in a concentration that is homeopathic, that is a
very very low concentration. Colloidal Silver was used as an
alternative to Mercury, when it was finally recognized that this heavy
metal antibiotic made people ill.
I also took a drug protocol called fen-phen, which
combines the prescription drugs Fenfluramine (60mg), Phentermine
(60mg) (these drugs are usually used in higher doses in this protocol,
which has been modified for my sensitivity to drugs), and a sleeping
medication called Temezopan. One of the main ways of treating NLK is
to make sure that the patient gets enough slow-wave sleep. Some
believe it to be a slow-wave sleep deficiency and an abnormality of
Cortisol secretion. Most here believe that this is triggered by a
virus or viruses.
Since, as we say here, I took everything under the sun, I am wondering
whether some of these or some other substances are used as antivirals
in China, and whether there are some you think are particularly likely
to work. Since traditional medicine is better established there, I
know that there have been studies in China which have not been done
here.. You may respond to the list or to me privately.
A particularly good American Web
site for virology is Dr. Martin's homepage at
Perhaps others on the group will want to
send you the addresses of their homepages. There has been too little
communication between east and west on virology issues. Thank you for
your time in consideration of my letter.
