Friends of facebook and twitter have been ‘high-fiving’ these great interviews. Plus, many of you have emailed me! Thank you for the early support and encouragement. My ambition is to bring information and awareness on Lyme disease to the public, as well as to provide inspiration and tool for recovery to those in need. This is a serious illness and no one can afford to be slack about prevention, treatment or hope for healing.

From bedridden to renewed with vitality (thought it took me 10 long years!) my heart is with you all. ‘Lyme Light Radio’ shines a lamplight of knowledge and insights.

Please like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, and tune in Wednesdays on TransformationTalkRadio.com or 1230 AM in S. New England.

LymeLightRadio.com has information on being a sponsor. We still need funding to continue broadcasting for a full year. We are shy of that funding now. If you are interested in having commercial airtime, or interviews with me please contact us at lymelightradio@gmail.com. We of course welcome donors, too, who believe in this show and out mission. You name will be on our donor page! (if you like)

Thank you to my initial guests and all you listeners and friends who have spread the good word that ‘Lyme Light Radio with Katina’ is the place to be on Wednesdays!

It is my privilege and honor to be your host.

See you next Wednesday!


Lyme Light Radio and Advanced Cell Training with Gary Blier

Hosting ‘Lyme Light Radio with Katina’ is an extraordinary privilege. Besides presenting a tick borne disease devoted program weekly to a world wide audience, I have the opportunity to learn fascinating information and healing insights from talented scientists, practitioners, advocates, authors, and more on this critical health issue. I am in my ‘element’ you could say, exploring a subject I am passionate about, dialoguing with informed people and spreading information to multitudes. Thank you to all the powers that be for aligning me in such a channel.

Wednesday August 18th Lyme Light Radio’s fascinating guest was Gary Blier, the founder of Advanced Cell Training. 

ImageGary Blier, author of the forthcoming book, “Healing the Incurable,” was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, a progressive, incurable disease which causes relentless arthritic joint pain and immobility. Determined to beat this condition, he visited all types of traditional and alternative providers and finally found answers in California and Mexico. The doctors, who cured him, also trained him. After years of study, he learned that these corrective disciplines he learned complement each other. 

Gary combined their theories into the process now called, Advanced Cell Training. 14 years later, literally thousands of people have been empowered to overcome diseases like MS, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, and many more, by following his discoveries. Gary passionately shares with his clients how to fully train their autonomic systems for optimal performance which often results in improved health. 

ACT is a unique healing protocol. As Gary so deftly explains in his interview, the body’s immune system is naturally designed to find all invasive pathogens, viruses, bacteria, fungi and more. Optimal health and balance enables us to be in a pneumonia ward of a hospital and not contract the illness. Likewise, well functioning immune systems can thwart any other infection, ie. Lyme disease, HIV, herpes! Various factors however can interrupt this rugged defense mechanism.

Stressful predisposing events, acidic diets, assorted emotional dynamics, mineral depletions and many other factors all can affect someone’s susceptibility. We then can succumb to an invasive pathogen or manifest assorted illness states.

Please listen to our mind-awakening show HERE

Gary Blier explains so practically how and why Lyme disease and other ills set up camp, often crippling our well-being. His own recovery story is validation of Advanced Cell Training’s capabilities. You will learn so much in our interview.

Having personally used ACT, I can vouch for it’s effectiveness in reducing my migraine headaches from once per week to a rare once per month attack now. As well as rescuing me emotionally from a devastating paralytic state of shock, that my physician wanted to hospitalize me for. Instead, I turned to ACT, and Gary’s treatment protocol had me functioning again in merely 48 hours. 

The mind-body healing pathway is an inborn skill set, yet we have ‘forgotten’ how to access some of these innate abilities, with modern society reaching outwards to external fixes and resources constantly, ie. a drug, a new job, a convenience food. As human beings we are designed with remarkable inner healing abilities. Gary Blier and ACT remind me, and hopefully you too, of how to get back inside ourselves to that intrinsic reservoir of recovery riches. His insights, savvy experience and thousands of success stories with sick people are a testimony to the goodness of inner healing.

Thank you Gary Blier for visiting with me and our listeners on Lyme Light Radio, our show was an invaluable window into your unique work. Please visit www.advancedcelltraining.com/ or call their office at (401) 398-7323 if you are curious for more information, or a free DVD about ACT. What makes the work so accessible, is that you get to do it at home, without traveling. 

As an individual who overcome advanced neurological Lyme disease, 5 years misdiagnosed, without ever touching an antibiotic, but using national medicine and mind-body-spirit healing work, I can vouch for the resiliency of the human being, when we are supported and guided properly on all planes.

Tune in to this podcast. You will learn something simple and yet powerful.

Blessings to all who are working on transformation and healing,



A View From the Vineyard

Sunday August 18 registers to me as a synergistic moment in my life. The experience I was fortunate to be part of this weekend in unison with Lyme disease key players was remarkable. I am cogniscent of higher powers at play. From the casual inquiry email I sent in April to the Martha’s Vineyard Support Group to the stupendously powerful culmination on Sunday is more than kismet. It was ‘ordained’.

As you know I speak around the USA with “Out of the Woods” as a Lyme disease healer and guide, enabling awareness and support to spread. My work is filled with intention and fueled by passion. Martha’s Vineyard is one of the worst ransacked Lyme regions around. Synchronicity allowed me to select August 18 as a day to come speak on the Island, the support group leader emailed back- :”Katina your intuition is so strong, I double checked the calendar and that is the same day the Tick Borne Disease Alliance is here with their Bite Back for the Cure bikathon kick off! I will see if we can partner with them.

And we did. Thank you to TBDA David Roth, Jodi Nass, John Donnally, and Dr Roni DeLuz, Dr. Enid Haller, Sam Hiser of Martha’s Vineyard Lyme Center. You pulled off a masterful confluence. As fate would allow, the esteemed Lyme physician and researcher, Dr John Aucott joined us with a presentation on his cytokine genetic research, narrowing in on why some get so tragically ill with borrelia and others skim along. My talk at the Chilmark church was videoed professionally— we will get it on YouTube— one woman came up to me at the end and said something very profound to me;

“Katina, that was breathtaking

Jodi Nass, John Aucott, David Roth, John Donally, Katina Makris, Nancy Dougherty, Enid Haller, Sam Hiser
Jodi Nass, John Aucott, David Roth, John Donally, Katina Makris, Nancy Dougherty, Enid Haller, Sam Hiser
Every heart in this room was touched and your work is clearly not about you, but meant for mankind”.

Thank you Cynthia— I am moved to hear such sincerity. I am honored to be a messenger and healer.

By nightfall we had showered and changed to dinner attire. Dr Pat Baccill my Lyme Light Radio network owner and award winning host was taping interviews like a dervish, to air on her 300 station syndicate- 10,000,000 listeners . I taped my 8/21 show on site too. Dr John Aucott and TBDA sponsored cyclist John Donally will be heard this week on WBLQ.net. It was exciting to be there in the midst of a chock filled, powerhouse player event and be taping for Lyme Light Radio—-how far have I arisen from bedridden status?? Life is filled with opportunity and we are resilient creatures– please remember that!!

The evening was beautiful– fabulous gluten free food, great caters, a charming shingled Grange Hall, spiritual choir singing, Lyme disease empathic people, talented communicators, a new Lyme video and a feeling palpable to all that we were threaded ensemble for a reason. A powerful radio network, an esteemed research scientist, an award winning Lyme author, the nation’s largest Lyme disease fundraising group TBDA, a visible vehicle in bika-thon cross country talent, newspaper reporters and caring folks positioned in one place at one time are not random. We we brought together under a soft summer night sky to influence the future. And we will.

WE all left exhausted and cemented. Returning to our ‘normal’ habitats and work with collaborative intention to push even further and harder to ammend the Lyme disease atrocity. Thank you one and all for sharing my healing book “Out of the Woods”, for allowing my voice to now broadcast on the air waves and for the miracle of life— good things can happen, even amidst the harrowing storms.


ps. read this tangential wake of it all too:

I am staying with my hosts in their darling cottage. cozy. it is situated on a country roadside.

today I am supposed to be resting, meditating, doing a bit of work for radio show this wednesday and regrouping for Block Island after a blitz of work in 48 hrs.

But, in the wake of yesterdays Lyme talk I gave and the big dinner event last night, I have had 3 complete strangers knocking on my door for advice on their Lyme heath! The place is riddled with INFECTED people with scant resource!!

I am backyard consulting on the spot– crazy and sad to witness how Lyme is so rampant and WHERE IS the medical help the country needs?

Let us shift the tides soon!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you have been enjoying your summer. 

I wanted you to know about a new radio show, Lyme Light Radio, that was launched  Wednesday August 14, by my childhood friend, Katina Makris (4pm EST/1pm PST). Please tune in, if you can. This weekly host/ guest/ call-in format show will discuss all matters related to Lyme disease and recovery. Katina’s first guest will be Mara Williams, author of “Nature’s Dirty Needle”.  Besides airing on AM talk radio station 1230 WBLQ, Lyme Light Radio will stream on 3 web stations-  http://www.wblq.net/http://transformationtalkradio.com/ and the syndicated http://www.thedrpatshow.com/.   From bedridden 7 years ago, to writing and promoting her acclaimed book, “Out of the Woods”, Katina is now further strengthening Lyme disease awareness and education by interviewing medical researchers, doctors, physician scientists, advocates, patients,and other Lyme disease experts on the air.  It is a great opportunity to learn and actively participate in the discussion. 

Have you seen the room-for-debate blog on “Deconstructing Lyme Disease” in this week’s NY Times?  -Good that the Times is keeping a wide array of Lyme disease issues in the forefront of discussion.  I believe the debate further supports the value of the translational clinical research being conducted by Dr. John Aucott of Johns Hopkins at the Lyme Disease Research Foundation.


If you are on Martha’s Vineyard this weekend, please come to the “Bite Back for a Cure” kickoff bike ride to raise money for Lyme disease awareness and research on August 18th from 11am-1pm.  The Lyme Center of Martha’s Vineyard and Tick Borne Disease Alliance are helping sponsor a day of events, which also includes a lecture by Katina Makris in Chillmark (1pm) and a fundraiser dinner in West Tisbury (6-9PM). http://www.mvlymecenter.org/events/august-18th-bite-back/  Dr. John Aucott, Johns Hopkins’ physician scientist, will be one of the handful of speakers introduced at the dinner and available to meet with throughout the day.  Dr. Aucott’s Lyme Disease Research Foundation continues to lead the charge on Lyme disease clinical research.

Hope you are feeling well and enjoying your summer.

Warm regards,

Nancy Dougherty

P.S. My Lyme disease work has just become even more personal, with our son, Ryan (20), being diagnosed with Lyme disease last week, after complaining about persistent intense headaches, ‘brain fog’, fever, etc.  We are treating him with doxy and hoping he does not end up with persistent symptoms.  A major Boston hospital sent him home without serology, but his pediatrician took the Lyme threat seriously and ordered a Western blot test which came back positive. – If you suspect Lyme disease, you have to be so tenacious!


Schedule for August 18, Martha’s Vineyard, Lyme disease Events

Tick Borne Disease Alliance, based in NYC, and Martha’s Vineyard Lyme Center host a chock full day of Lyme disease educational, awareness and fundraising events. This is a significant day for the future health of our nation, as Lyme disease has now surpassed HIV as the fastest spreading infectious illness in the USA.

The CDC admits that the 30,000 cases of Lyme disease reported to them annually, are likely a mere 10% of the true number of cases actually contracted. When not treated promptly with pharmaceuticals in the early weeks of an infection, this shape shifting bacterial infection can morph into auto-immune style symptoms and illnesses. Millions of people in the USA are infected with Lyme disease and neither they nor the doctors are aware of this, as the standard lab test most turn to (if they even rcognize the Lyme suspicion at all) have a 70% false negative error rate. This means many of afflicted folks could ‘get well’, IF they got a proper Lyme diagnosis and treatments, instead of coping and deteriorating with Lupus, MS, ALS, fibromyalgia, CFS, RA, migraines, neuropathy and more.

TBDA, Lyme Light Radio, ILADS and more aim to end the denial, confusion and suffering surrounding the Lyme disease situation with their awarness, educational and fundraising efforts. Please join us on Martha’s Vineyard for this stupendous day, August 18. Or, tune in on-line to TheDrPatShow.com and listen in.

Here is the schedule:
