I am honored to interview an intrepid Lyme disease advocate and survivor, Bethany Wing, this week on Lyme Light Radio. Join us Wednesday July 8, 1pm pt/ 4pm et at LymeLightRadio.com and WBLQ.net. Bethany gives light to the insidious nature of misdiagnosed Lyme disease and how it can corrupt one’s life for decades! Too many people sadly will resonate with Bethany’s story and also be inspired by her motivation to overcome horrific odds and still thrive in life.
My new book, “Autoimmune Illness and Lyme disease Recovery Guide, Mending Body, Mind & Spirit”, to be released on August 11, 2015, highlights Bethany’s story as her case is a ‘classic’ cross-over misdiagnosis of autoimmune illness with the bacterial infection of Lyme disease. 50 million Americans are diagnosed with autoimmune illness- we wonder what percentage could be caused by tick borne diseases?
Do NOT miss this special interview with a special woman!!
Bethany Wing’s career started in the Financial Industry where she had become a Financial Advisor for Fidelity Investments. Later she had moved on to Bank Boston and Fleet. She eventually left banking and worked for a Venture Capitalist, learning startups and watching some go public and some tank. One amazing adventure was working with WorldCare Inc. and its amazing twists and turns of Wellness, helping other people have access to our Best HealthCare hospitals in the United States. Another avenue that WorldCare was venturing onto was a multi billion dollar wellness Center in Dubai which has been put on hold for some years now.While in the Financial Industry she decided to follow her artistic desire to learn all about the beauty Industry. From Makeup to Hair to all Spa essentials she grew to one day open her own Salon. This is where she currently resides and enjoys running a small business, helping others feel and look better. She enjoys teaching employees all that she knows and still furthering her education every year at main events and classes worldwide.
Coincidentally, she struggled with her health as long as she can remember. Her fasination with people looking good actually always came from the inside, and she expressed it with her art. Her struggle with health brought her to her knees and has brought her an awareness that she could never have without going though all that she has.
She has found a way to bring her health and her outer appearance into One. And this is where she resides with her Non-Profit Tick Tock to bring Doctors awareness and teaching, so that so many will not suffer as she did, and so many still are.
Lyme Light Radio with Katina welcomes Dr. Kerry Clark, who will be with us this Wednesday, 11/21, 4:00pm ET/1:00pm PT. With 20 years of tick research in the south, Dr. Clark shares stunning revelations that Lyme disease is more rampant in the southern United States than the north! Wake up America, ISDA, CDC and everyone! Join us to learn more about his fascinating and important work!
Dr. Kerry Clark is the Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Environmental Health. Dr. Clark came to the University of North Florida with a Masters in Public Health Epidemiology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He earned a Ph.D. in Environmental Health Sciences from the University of South Carolina, where he conducted the first ecologic study of the Lyme disease bacteria in that state. He has been studying Lyme and other tick-borne diseases for the past 20 years. In addition to his research, he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in epidemiology and environmental health in the Department of Public Health at UNF.
Dr. Clark is committed to studying the ecology and epidemiology of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases in the southern U.S. He was the first to report finding Lyme disease spirochetes in animals and ticks in South Carolina, and in wild reptiles in South Carolina and Florida. He has documented the presence of Lyme disease bacteria, Babesia, and other tick-borne pathogens in wild animals, ticks, and humans in Florida and other southern states. Recently, he discovered two previously unrecognized Lyme Borrelia species in human patients in Florida, Georgia, and other states across the U.S.
This week’s Lyme Light Radio broadcast is a chock-filled show. Massachusetts has long been in the ‘hot seat’ regarding all matters related to Lyme disease. Though riddled at pandemic proportions – Cape Cod, The Vineyard, Nantucket, Dover and more showing up to 90% of ticks infected, people being constantly misdiagnosed, many under treated and lost in the insurance company shuffle. Sadly, physicians have been legally limited to only 60 day allotments of antibiotic use, with often tragically ill patients.
But, the tides are turning, due to the mighty work of potent Lyme activists like Trish McCleary of S.L.A.M., Dr. Enid Haller and Dr. Roni DeLuz creating resource Lyme centers, healing retreats and devoted hot-line support from Janet Dooley.
These impassioned, talented women ALL join us on Wednesday 9/18 4PM ET, 1PM PT to update us on the state of affairs in Massachusetts. Is there hope for America, if we follow their lead?
