David S. Bell, MD, FAAP, is a Harvard graduate, with an MD degree from Boston University School of Medicine, 1971. In 1978, he began work at the University of Rochester but soon began a private practice in the town of Lyndonville, New York. In 1985 nearly 220 persons became ill with an illness subsequently called chronic fatigue syndrome in the communities surrounding Lyndonville, New York. This illness cluster began a study of the illness which continues today. Dr. Bell is the author or co-author of numerous scientific papers and books on CFS. He has also lectured on the ways ME/CFS affects the neurological and immune systems and the possible explanations for this illness, right down to the body's ability to handle oxygen at the cellular level. He has been rigorously following the research into the XMRV virus and will be speaking about this research.

In 1990, I meant Dr. Bell at a CFIDS conference,, I am impressed with his wisdom and insight into this disease.. I for one feel fairly certain that the XMRV is the culprit..I've been ill with CFIDS for 42 years..I do know that my NATURAL KILLER CELL ' FUNCTION" IS NOT CORRECT.. THIS HAS BEEN TESTED MANY TIMES. KNOWING THIS, I HAVE BEEN ON MY OWN SEARCH FOR WHAT WOULD HELP MY NATURAL KILLER CELLS FUNCTION..IT IS INTERESTING THAT THE CD 3 AND CD4 LYMPOCHETES ARE UNDERACTIVE AND THE T SUPPESSOR 8 CELLS ARE OVER ACTIVE.. SOUNDS MUCH LIKE HIV!! I don't have HIV..but hiv is a Retro virus.. .NOW HERE'S MY THEARY.. I SURE HOPE DR BELL READS THIS.. I KNOW MY OWN BODY AND THIS DISEASE VERY WELL.. BECAUSE THE NATURAL KILLER CELL " FUNCTION"....NOT COUNT of natural killer cells..:" function".. IS IMPAIRED I LOOKED UP WHAT SUPPLYS OUR NATURAL KILLER CELLS.. GUESS WHAT? THE TYMUS AND POSSIBLY THE BONE MARROW.. SURPRISE..XMRV LIVES IN THE TYMUS,POSSIBLE IN THE BONE MARROW, THE MUSCLES, THE INNER LINING OF THE VEINS AND THE SEX ORGANS. IF THE TYMUS IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY THEN IT XMRV COULD BE THE REASON.. NOW HOW DO I ACCOUNT FOR ALL THE LATENT VIRUS'S THAT COME OUT OVER THE YEARS.. MONO, EPSTEIN BARR, HERPES 6, LYME STANDS,AND CMV??? THESE ARE THE LITTLE VIRUS'S THAT MESS UP OUR BRIANS CEMISTRY, AUTO NOMIC REACTIONS ( HEART, BLISTERS, SERVE FATIGE AND SICKNESS, OXYGEN AND TEMPERATURE PROBLEMS..LOW BLOOD VOLUME..ON AND ON!They can't be kept under control when you have low natural killer cell function..And STRESS plays a part in all this also! ARE YOU WITH ME..? IN JAPAN, THIS ILLNESS IS CALLED LOW NATURAL KILLER CELL DYSFUNCTION..THEY HAVE IT RIGHT OR AT LEAST CLOSER THAN ALL THE OTHER STUPID NAMES THAT HAVE MADE OUR DISEASE TAKEN LIGHTLY.. IN JAPAN THEY STUDIED XMRV AND USED 'ANTIBODIES' TO DISCOVER IT IN MEN WITH PROSTRATE CANCER.. DR. BELL'S GROUP USED ANTIBODIES. ALL THESE STUDIES THAT HAVE TRIED TO POO POO THE AMERICAN STUDY USED PCR..( POLY CHAIN REACTION) IN BLOOD SAMPLES.. A WHOLE DIFFERENT BALL GAME..XMRV DOES NOt SHOW IN THE BLOOD THAT MUCH.. IT IS A SLOW GROWING RETRO- VIRUS. EVERY AREA OF THE BODY CAN BE MESSED UP SEVERLY WITH LOW NATURAL KILLER CELL FUNCTION.. I'M GOING ONE STEP FURTURE...I STUDIED LOW DOSE NALTEXONE SEVERAL YEARS AGO FOR CFIDS AND GUESS WHAT...HIV! COMPOUNDED TO 3 MG..I TOOK IT.. IT CORRECTED MY NATURAL KILLER CELL FUNCTION AND AS LONG AS I DIDN'T REALLY OVERDO, I WAS BACK TO NORMAL!!Doctors who where brave enough to stay from the norm...didn't need anti virals .. they used Naltexone...YOU CAN FIND BOOKS On low dose NALTREXONE AT AMAZON..BY THE WAY, YOU DON'T NESSESSARILY HAVE LYME DISEASE BECAUSE YOU HAVE POSTIVE STRANDS OF 41 AND 39..THAT IS THE TAIL OF THE BACTERIA SPREOCEET ( CORK SCREW TAIL)...THERE ARE OTHER SPEROCEET DISEASES.. A DENTAL ONE, SYSPHILIS AND LYMEso far! I HAVE 3 STANDS FOR LYME BUT I BELIEVE THEY ARE LIKE THE LATENT VIRUS'S. I WAS ON ANTIBIODICS FOR ONE YEAR FOR LYME AND I'M STILL CLIMBING OUT OF THAT HOLE.. IT DISTROYED MY IMMUNE SYSTEM FURTHER!!.ANYWAY, I'M ANXIOUSLY AWAITING DR. BELL'S LECTURES.. HE'S A FINE, BRILLANT MAN, WHO HAS WORKED HIS LIFE FOR THIS CAUSE!! I JUST WISH I COULD TALK TO HIM PERSONALLY AND BE TESTED FOR XMRV.. IT'S TOO EARLY FOR THE TEST.. GOTTA WAIT FOR THE NIH AND FDA TO APPROVE A GOOD TEST.. ANY TEST THAT IS DONE NOW WON'T BE ACCEPTED BY YOUR DOCTOR AS PROOF POSITIVE. THIS IS SIGNED WITH ADMIRATION FOR DR.BELL,DR. NANCY KILMAS, DR. JOHN MARTIN, DR. CHENEY, DR. DEFARIS , dR LAPP AND MANY OTHERS WHO HAVE PUT THERE HEART AND SOUL INTO THIS DISEASE!! SOME HAVE BEEN PERCECUITED.. KINDA LIKE THE SALEM WHICH TRAILS.( JOHN MARTIN AND DEFRAIS).CRAZY PEOPLE AT THE HIGH LEVELS WHO JUST WANNA SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG BECAUSE THEY MADE MISTAKES.. AND WHILE I'm on my high horse. THE CFIDS ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN A BLESSING..ONE HUGE EXCEPTION..THE NAME 'CHROIC FATIGUE HAS BEEN A ANCHOR AROUND OUR NECKS..DOCTORS DON'T TAKE IT SERIOUS.. AT THE NIH..Politics have delayed so much progress!! That's my take on all this.. Good Luck to all of you with this terrible disease.. I started on my first 3 mg of Naltrexone today.. I'll keep you posted! i HAVE TO ADMIT.. I HAD TO GET IT FROM INDIA!! Nila Shea Williams..educated at University of Fla., National Champ swimmer, mother of 6 children, professional singer when permitted by illness and very brave suvivor!! Love to all of you!!

I took the time to write my long responce because I care about people that have this illness..I failed to say that the XMRV lives in the lymph nodes also.. Today there was an article that they have just discovered HIV lives and hides in the bone marrow.. Sound familiar? XMRV does also.. I know my responce was very technical but it's logical to assume a hypothosis for CFIDS and XMRV..I don't wanna have a retro virus..heck no...but I do want to face whatever I have to, to get well.. I'll keep you posted on the Naltexone that I started.. It worked before!! Naltexone is being studied by the NIH for treatment in many illness's...Hugs and love coming for me to you.. Nila..Survivor!!
