Out of The Woods Lyme Disease Healing & Detox Retreats- France, California, Montana

With true pleasure and deep respect to the often devastating and compromising states a Lyme disease or tick borne infection can induce, I am collaborating my decades of professional and 15 years of personal first hand experience with chronic Lyme, in deeply restorative healing retreat settings with the gifted healers of Amara of Ojai Healing Center.

http://amaraojai.com/

Dr Edie Resto, chiropractor and,graduate of Bastyr Naturopathic College, myself and her high caliber team successfully utilize multiple therapeutic modalities. We help assess each individual’s systemic weakness and damages induced by the infections, mold toxins, heavy metals, leaky gut, emotional injury and more via pre-program intake assessment interviews and questionnaires.

Under the direction of Dr. Resto (known lovingly to all as Dr. Edie) and my body-mind-spirit understanding of this complex condition, a personalized plan is created incorporating multiple natural medicine modalities. The “Out of The Woods Lyme Retreat” healing programs are different than any other, taking into consideration the specific client, their condition, past treatments, and a strategically planned course of action. Our practitioners have studied how these reliable modalities compliment each other and how to create a perfected environment for the body to recalibrate and heal. Please visit the AmaraOjai.com website to meet your practitioner team.

Once the client is on location, pre and post benchmarks are established with BioMeridian, Lens Neuro Feedback, homeopathic and energetic practitioner exams and evaluations. Our programs all include Dr Edie’s proven and truly effective deep detox dietary protocol. Each client will receive a customized restorative treatment plan incorporating a personal detox diet, acupuncture and chiropractic sessions, herbal and nutritive supplements, homeopathic remedies, Reiki and Body Resonance treatments, mud and salt baths, herbal hot wraps, detox foot baths, metaphysical energetic healing exercises, meditations and emotional and spiritual supportive renewal. This is truly the comprehensive kind of replenishing healing work so many Lyme disease cases have been ‘craving’!

Our mission is to create nurturing and restorative retreats in beautiful locations that feed the body, mind and spirit. Having worked with thousands of Lyme disease and chronic illness cases, we understand the vast nature of depletion, exhaustion, systemic consequences and the true emotional and spiritual suffering the afflicted experience. True healing necessitates tending to all planes of the being in order to gain wholeness and wellness.

We have three sets of retreats planned for the 2015-6 year. Join us in France this summer (July-August), Ojai, California (February 2016) or Helena Montana (June 2016). Of course you are welcome to attend all! See more details on the Amara Healing Center website.

Lyme disease asks us to dig deep. Establishing an amalgam of therapies to help the body, mind and spirit to purge toxins, bad patterns, unwanted mental grooves, wayward biochemistry and self-defeating beliefs is critical to reforming an interior platform of clear, fresh terrain in order for the benefits of supplements, homeopathics, dietary changes, medicines to work, and prompt healthier new cells to form as well as a more optimal ‘mindset’ to prompt better immune, endocrine and neurological functions and other bodily functions.

The ‘older’ version of focusing primarily on killing off the Lyme and co-infections microbes brings a person only ‘so far’ in their complete healing. Most chronic cases plateau once the bulk of the infectious organisms have been reduced. However, a great deal of damage and depletions have been inflicted from fighting a severe infection for months and years, as well as often sky-high degrees of toxic cellular debris and endotoxins (ammonia overload) in many cases. This is where the Out Of The Woods Retreats are special and unique.

We are uniting the best of traditional medicine and complementary natural medicine with a team of practitioners to work with you. Our approach aims to restore depletions, improve energy, rid ‘brain fog’ and cognitive impairment, cleanse toxins and mend the spirit. The emotional and spiritual suffering from Lyme disease is just as intrinsic as the physical. The goal is to help you find a higher calibration of well-being. Two weeks can not encompass ‘curing’ Lyme disease and co-infections, but the retreats are able to help attendees find better balance and a clearer pathway to healing.

Visionary Healer and Founder of Inanna House, Mara Williams returns to Lyme Light Radio


The author of “Nature’s Dirty Needle”, a book for all of us that introduces case histories and the nuances of Lyme disease an co-infections joins me this week on Lyme Light Radio. Also the founder of the first residential tick borne disease treatment center in the making, Inanna House, Mara bears a deep compassion for the decimating damage this illness induces in patient’s lives. Families, careers, psyches and a body can be destroyed when Lyme disease becomes pervasively entrenched within our systems. Akin to the syphillus tragedies of centuries past, Lyme disease is the modern day maiming blood borne infectious illness.

As a seasoned Nurse Practitioner at the USA’s famed Gordon Medical Associates, Mara has extensive knowledge on the assorted modalities necessary to both deal with a new acute infection or the long term chronic types of advanced Lyme disease. Please help me welcome a true healer, a gifted visionary and a passionate Lyme disease advocate to my show this week. Mara’s wisdom is too precious to be missed.

Mara joins Lyme Light Radio this Wednesday, November 19, at 4 PM Eastern Time, 1pm Pacific Time. You can tune in live at http://www.transformationtalkradio.com or on WBLQ AM 1230 in Southern New England.

Dr Wayne Anderson on Mycoplasmas and Lyme Cases That Do Not Resolve

Lyme disease is wreaking havoc world-wide. I got a touching email from Belgium Lyme Support telling me how much they value Lyme Light Radio with Katina each week, savoring the news our brilliant guests share. They gather together to listen to the show and discuss. This truly touched my heart~~ to discover this wonderful radio show is reaching around the globe and bringing such resource to so many in need!! The crazy hours I keep, the generosity of our talented guests to lend the time, knowledge and passion to us all for free. WOW! The synergy is amazing and so very worth it, to think we are creating dialogue and affecting CHANGE~ as my opening music conveys.

This week we welcome back a very Lyme seasoned practitioner. Dr. Wayne Anderson is a renowned naturopath at Gordon Medical Association with three decades of experience in treating tick-borne diseases. He will explain to us how mycoplasmas are the culprit in many Lyme cases that do not fully recover. Many ‘Lyme’ cases stall and do not fully recover. Dr Anderson’s experience pinpoints one of the ‘co-infections’ ticks also infect us with, mycoplasmas!! Get ready to learn a TON!!

Call in questions can be directed to 800 930 2819 during the show. Join us this Wednesday at TransformationTalkRadio.com


wayne_andersonWith a background in education, Dr. Wayne Anderson understands the role of teaching in medical care. Working with grade school students he saw that diet and environment impacted student’s mood and behavior. This sent him back to school for training as a Naturopathic doctor. A growing focus on natural healing approaches in clinical practice in Oregon caused him to broaden his assessment and treatment skills and he earned the designation of Physician Assistant.
For two decades, Dr. Anderson practiced in a busy community-based family medical center, treating individuals and families from birth to old age. His emphasis on patients experiencing chronic illness grew. As he became aware of the prevalence of chronic Lyme disease and related conditions he realized the important part they play in chronic illness.
In 2002, Dr. Anderson left family practice to work with Eric Gordon MD. Now he has a practice with a concentration on chronic illness, using tools and experience from both conventional and integrative medicine. At GMA, with a growing focus on Lyme disease, he has developed a deeper understanding of chronic illness, its treatment, and the frontiers still available as possible solutions.
A curious and dedicated clinician, Dr. Anderson is committed to the ongoing process of learning and teaching. In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Anderson maintained his initial focus on teaching. For over 20 years he taught medical students at Touro Osteopathic Medical School, and supervised residents from Sutter Hospital and interns from the Physician Assistant programs in the clinic setting. He is also a popular speaker on the topics of Lyme disease and neurotoxin illness.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Anderson has known that his patients are partners in the process of learning about and treating their illness, whether they choose conventional or alternative medicine or a combination of both. He listens to understand each patient’s strengths and challenges and improve his effective interaction with them. He sees every person as complex, integrated, and unique, and believes that treatment should optimize health and well-being.


Join us on Wednesday, June 11, at 1PM PT/4PM ET and don’t forget to call in at 800 930 281 if you have any questions for Dr Anderson! You can listen to the episode right now on iTunes or athttp://thedrpatshow.com/shows/mak-140611-anderson.mp3

Why The IDSA does not Recognize Chronic Lyme Disease, with Dr Eric Gordon

Dr. Eric Gordon

 Lyme Light Radio with Katina interviews one of America’s premier Integrative Health Care Physicians and Lyme Disease specialists, Dr Eric Gordon, founder of Gordon Medical Associates in Sonoma, Ca. Join us this Wednesday, March 12, 1pm pt/4p et on TransformationTalkRadio.com, TheDrPatShow.com, LymeLightRadio.come or at 1230AM WBLQ on the dial in Southern New England.

I am honored to share the hour discussing Dr Gordon’s expertise on the mayhem surrounding the exploding Lyme disease epidemic and just why

What Dr. Eric Gordon emphasizes is listening to his patients. “I believe my patients. Their description of what is going on in their body is the most accurate way we have to assess what is going on with them. I interpret the information they present, and blend it with laboratory results and imaging and other tests to determine a protocol that is customized to their condition.”

Patients with poorly defined chronic illnesses react differently to all types of environmental stressors and medical interventions. While one patient may respond well to a particular protocol, other patients may not respond at all, or even have a negative reaction.

Dr. Gordon knows there is an interwoven complexity to these illnesses. There is a layering of the body’s adaptations to environmental toxins and infections from pathogens that is unique to every person, depending on their genetic susceptibility, organ vulnerability, toxic exposures, medical history and life circumstances. The body’s various biological systems – immune, endocrine, neurological, gastrointestinal and so on – influence each other and are influenced by each other, both in the development and progression of illness, and also its resolution.
When illness has been present for a long time, a patient’s body is almost invariably dominated by the sympathetic nervous system; it is in a state of hyper-vigilance, a constant ‘fight-or-flight’ mode. Dr. Gordon knows to begin with gentle interventions to help the body find a place of rest and safety. These initial steps allow the parasympathetic nervous system to function appropriately, to let the body find its way, and start healing itself.

This necessitates an eclectic approach. Dr. Gordon says, “As the components of a person’s chronic illness reveal themselves, so will treatment direction. Some patients may immediately benefit from intravenous therapies. Others may respond initially to energetic modalities, such as Frequency Specific Microcurrent or Photon Stimulation. Some patients may require antibiotics while, for others, herbal or homeopathic remedies may be more suitable. Everyone has different supplementation requirements, and needs to follow different detoxification strategies.”

In addition to seeing patients in his practice, Dr. Gordon has organized and served as medical advisor and moderator for a series of medical symposia in Northern California. From 2007-2009, these intensive five-day meetings brought together extraordinary faculties consisting of approximately 30 leading international academic medical researchers and cutting-edge clinicians, respectively focusing on CFS, Lyme, autoimmune diseases and autism.
For Dr. Gordon, however, knowledge and understanding does not come primarily from research, but from interaction and direct experience with his patients. He is first and foremost a private practice physician. His deep respect for the biochemical individuality of his patients is at the heart of his approach.

Dr. Wayne Anderson Discusses Genome Flaws and Links to Chronic Lyme Disease

Some people get infected with the Lyme disease bacteria (borrelia burgdorferi), take the prescribed antibiotics and pull out of the flu like pains and malaise readily. Certain folks get infected and their ultra capable immune function and genetic ancestry enables them to fend off the infection all together. Life goes on smoothly.

Then, there are the estimated 4,000,000 plus people in the USA, and millions more worldwide, whom are struggling with devastating chronic forms of illness created by Lyme disease. Their lives are compromised, fortunes are spent on treatments, many are misdiagnosed with auto-immune illnesses and Lyme or co-infections are the true culprits.

Why do some of us get destroyed by the bacterial infection and others not? Susceptibility is a factor in all illnesses – from a tendency to strep throat, pneumonia, MS or advanced neurological Lyme disease.

Dr. Wayne Anderson of the prominent Gordon Medical Associates team joins me on Wednesday, February 19 1pm PT/4pm ET on Lyme Light Radio. We will explore the fascinating studies of Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker and the ‘genome flaws’ or genetic predisposition some of us were born with that set us up for Lyme disease to create maiming afflictions and ‘trigger’ other disorders.

This is a show you do NOT want to miss! When I heard Dr. Anderson present this information at ILADS Boston 2012, a major ah-ha moment clicked for me! This is ground breaking work and the reason why I was able to heal 100% from advanced neurological Lyme disease, by addressing these issues. It works!

Thank you Dr. Anderson – your work with tick borne diseases and ability to educate are brilliant.
