Thankful for Lyme Light Radio’s Latitude and Stardom

A year of profound awakening in the domain of tick borne disease, as the topic has finally become news worthy! I am truly blessed to host the weekly talk show program- “Lyme Light Radio with Katina”. What a supreme launch we have had!

I give thanks – to Dr.Pat Bacilli, Lyme Light Radio’s network owner who ‘tapped’ me in the first place to create this dynamic, much needed radio program. Your belief in me has been life altering. True gratitude to the entire team at The Dr. Pat Show – Linda Firing, Jesica Henderson, Kim Hunt for your production, creative design and mentoring. Collaboratively we have created a tremendously valuable educational and inspirational Lyme dialogue, ushering in a wave of transformation. Change can happen!

My pals at WBLQ, our broadcast station – Chris DiPaulo, Krissy Carlson, Loren Matthews – YOU ROCK! Without your technical smarts, coaching and weekly hand-holding Lyme Light Radio would not air. Thank you for working with me and broadcasting us so smoothly. I love our lead in music and promo, “Change is Gonna Come”!

Thank you to the absolutely FABULOUS guests whom have come on air for interviews. I am in awe of the talent, the passion, the experience and honesty my guests have shared with out listeners. Please go look at our archived shows:  click the archive link on LymeLightRadio.com and see the line-up of prominent physicians, authors, researchers, and activists I have interviewed. AND, we have more great guests coming in the year ahead! It is marvelous! The flood of guest requests coming in is phenomenal.

To our sponsors; Advanced Cell Training, TBDA and BioResources, I express true gratitude. Without you we could not produce Lyme Light Radio with Katina. Your support is helping educate the world about Lyme disease, tick borne illness and healing. Your vision and faith in me is changing lives.

And, a special dose of warmth and heartfelt love to my trusty assistant Charlotte Miller, who holds all the details of Lyme Light Radio together. Without you lovely Charlotte, loose ends would be a snaggled mess!! Plus, all of you please send a facebook thank you or tweet to my social media assistant, Chloe Rapp, @LymeLightRadio and on facebook. Beautiful, smart, Lyme warrior Chloe keeps us ‘alive’ in the media world. Thank you for your heads up ability to spark attention and bring us in new listeners. You are a gem!

Last and certainly not the least, I thank all you beautiful people who tune in toauthor Katina Makris live or listen to our archived podcasts.

We want to wake up the world to the confusion surrounding tick borne disease. We aim to educate, inspire and create a space of hope for the millions in need.

I am blessed to have survived the near death calamity of advanced Lyme disease. My commitment to ending suffering propels me to take risk, communicate and offer insights around Lyme disease. Thank you for your time with me each week. Together we are doing something powerful – we are helping mankind.

At this time of Thanksgiving I reflect and feel both guided and graced with Lyme Light Radio. May we all flourish for years to come.

With blessings,

Importance of The Virginia Lyme Disease Bill on Lyme Light Radio

Hundreds of thousands of people are infected with the Lyme disease bacteria and other tick borne illnesses annually. Yet, only 10% are accurately diagnosed, due to faulty test results of the ELISA test the majority of physicians use. Sadly, these cases are misdiagnosed as assorted auto-immune illnesses (CFS, MS, RA, Lupus, more), neurological issues (ALS, tourettes, bi polar) or brushed off as inconsequential or perhaps a virus, or “you’re just run down”. 

Our population is suffering! Doctors have been under-educated about Lyme disease for decades, believing it to be a short term, acute illness of regional isolation. Clinical findings and decades of a now chronically ill America, illuminate that this shape-shifting spirochete bacteria (cousin to syphilis) moves from bloodstream to tissues, joints, organs and the brain, creating a panoply of symptoms, depletions and often complete life destruction. (I was such a case – bedridden, broke, despairing with 3 false ELISA negatives in 5 years).

Meet Susan Green and Monte Skall, 2 women who have made history in the Lyme disease story. These powerful visionaries, hard workers and compassionate souls fought fiercely in the state of Virginia to get a bill passed which essentially states – “a negative Lyme test result does not rule out that you are infected”, by-passing proper treatment and diagnosis.

They join me on Lyme Light Radio this Wednesday, September 25, 4:00pm ET live on WBLQ 1230AM and streaming on TheDrPatShow.com and TransformationTalkRadio.com. Our call in number is 1-800-930-2819.

Join us for a great show. Learn the importance of this piece of history and how your state needs to follow suit!!

Pass the word.

Thank you

Is Lyme Disease Sweeping the World the way AIDS has?

 

http://lyme-aid.net/content/lyme-disease-new-hiv#comments

Many people have concerns over how Lyme disease has been deftly downplayed as a limited short term infectious illness for 4 decades now, yet droves have been treacherously ill from misdiagnosed or mismanaged cases. Current studies are illuminating female lyme ‘carriers’ are transmitting the bacteria to the fetus creating stillbirth, autism, learning disabilities, OCD. Research in the 1980’s, by Dr. Alan MacDonald, clearly pinpointed 70% of Alzheimer victims test positive for the Lyme bacteria, yet the USA government would not fund well documented continued research in this vein.

Much mystery, confusion, medical infighting and now a frank uprising by sick people and their families surrounds Lyme disease and the epidemic status it has attained. It is time for the ‘code’ to be cracked on just what this stealthy bacteria- borrelia burgdorferi and its co-infections, is all about, and let’s find an end to the suffering, the faulty diagnostic testing and the inconsistent recovery treatments! We have the medical geniuses and technologies available for other illnesses, let us just point our laser science minds onto Lyme disease, found in 89 countries of the world.

Please read and share my provocative article here, “Is Lyme Disease the New HIV?” hosted by a new and promising international Lyme community driven website:

Lyme-Aid.net.  Thank you Peter Strang in Australia for bringing me ‘onboard’. Great work can be achieved when many hands unite.

Kind regards,

Katina
