hey, nice to meet you too tansy [:)]
I have CFIDS(CFS/M.E.) too - it's always nice to hear new information about this. That is very interesting about the T cells - I'll go check out the link.
I'd be interested to know if you have had NK or T cell tests. I haven't - they're not generally available here in New Zealand, but I gather they are more available in places like the US.
Can you say what "local (FL) distillation" is? (although I guess I'll find that on the site. I'm always a bit suspicious of 'treatments' that cost alot, especially something as ubiquitous as pine!
If you are looking at ways of taking pine check out the thread that LadyB posted the link for above:

There are also a number of people here that have/had Lymes, CFS, and/or EBV - you'll find some threads on Lymes especially.
hope to see you around the forum.
