If the viruses are so stealthy, how does he know they are there?
If he knows a method to reveal these stealthy viruses, can he publish to allow others to test this idea?
Or is this all pseudoscientific marketing for an expensive private clinic that loots desperate patients?
We have another theory from John Martin stealth virus here.
The virologist I saw years ago told me that JM is the only 'doctor' who can actually see this virus.
Yes, he has a history of this. His lab was shut down years ago.
Is this serious? It seems like a bizarre mix of misinformation about ME definition, anecdotes some of which are nothing to do with ME, stealth viruses which I know nothing about, and finishes up with quack nonsense about activated water.
Cross posted with others. Glad we agree.
Every time I read something like this I get violently sucked into an alternate universe I never agreed to inhabit.
More on KELEA water from same author (John Martin) 2015:
You have to download the PDF to see the whole thing (I don't know how to do that)
And there are several other similar sites. I think JM has been at this for some decades now.

Too many to list here.
I saw it yesterday and decided it was not worth posting. It's a mess of various things, I'm not really sure what is the actual point because it veers in too many directions.
I think it's pretty clear the actual point is he's a quack selling quack nonsense, and dressing it up as science by doing a very poor quality literature search and making stuff up.
The thing that puzzles me is that it got published in what looks like a genuine journal.
Its published in "Journal of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology" https://clinmedjournals.org/Journal-of-Infectious-Diseases-and-Epidemiology.php
This looks to me to have all the hallmarks of a predatory journal (that is, makes its money by publishing sub-quality articles with a superficial "peer review").
The publisher is also listed on this list of predatory publishers.
Seems more than a little implausible...
