Scholarship Aid for Lyme and Autoimmune Diseases Workshop – Integrative Medicine at its finest with renowned Dr.Jodie Dashore and Katina Makris

The beautiful Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC welcomes award winning Lyme disease and autoimmune illness author and homeopath, Katina Makris, and internationally honored neurologist and autism, Lyme and autoimmune expert physician, Dr. Jodie Dashore, for a 5 day healing and teaching weekend, May 10-14, 2017.

aol-medical-flier-pdf-1This is a very special opportunity to learn how to diagnose, treat and recover from these often deeply limiting health concerns of our modern age. Your body and mind are far more resilient than you may fathom. As we branch beyond the traditional medical model of a pill or procedure to quell symptoms, we will explore all the restorative modalities and underlying issues that set a person up to develop these conditions. Both teachers share thousands of clinical hours in helping restore quality of life and remission for many, as well as their own personal full recovery stories.

Exciting news arises in that SCHOLARSHIP aid for the retreat has become available from 3 brilliant sponsors ! Our thank yous to DNA Connections Labs, Pure Air Doctor and Microbiology Labs for helping support attendance for those with financial need.

This means you can apply for assistance for partial and a few full scholarships to come experience Integrative Medicine at its finest, in the beautifully serene and healing Art of Living Center. Please contact Dr. Dashore’s office for applications at: DashoreIntegrativeRx.com – fill out the contact information there and note “scholarship for Art of Living” in the subject line.

We also welcome health care professionals as attendees, as the South needs massive education on how to recognize the exploding Lyme disease crisis in terms of it’s stealth symptom picture, the poor diagnostics of a 40 year old outdated test most physicians assume is valid (70% false negative results) and how to actually treat and heal these conditions, that long term tick borne infections create. Millions of tick borne infectious illnesses have been misdiagnosed as many autoimmune diseases, learning disabilities and autism spectrum, PANS, dementia and hormonal imbalances for decades.

See our schedule for the weekend here:

How I Overcame CFS, Fibromyalgia and Neurological Lyme Disease

Though it was a ten year healing journey in totality, I overcame a bedridden status of 3 years, and loss of everything I held dear; including my marriage and family, home and income, career and well-being, to heal 100% from advanced neurological Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. This is a true story and one for all struggling with chronic illness to view.

Please see the link here and watch the in depth, intimate and touching interview Dan Neuffer of CFS Unravlled site does with me. This is the stuff of life’s most important callings– your passage to health and happiness.

Katina Makris’ Chronic Lyme Disease & Fibromyalgia Syndrome Recovery

I First fell sick in the summer of 2000. Though living an organic outdoorsy lifestyle with a young family and wonderful husband, I was stricken with a ‘mysterious flu’ that progressed into chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and wicked almost daily migraines. No one knew how to help me. MS, anxiety attacks and more were batted about as my disorders.

I bounced in and out of prominent New England hospitals and doctor’s offices for 5 years- dissipating more each year. The CFS was crippling and my spirit broke. AND, a brilliant clinical nutritionist, PhD, ended up being the beacon in my shallow chamber of shadowed light, whom would finally properly diagnose and treat me–helping me heal fully and now travel the world with my book “OUT OF THE WOODS, HEALING LYME DISEASE, BODY, MIND & SPIRIT ” and broadcast my radio program LYME LIGHT RADIO on WBLQ.net and the famed TheDrPatShow syndicate.

I share this interview with all of you because I am impassioned to bring hope to those in need and information to those whom are confused. My heart is in this for all of those whom are struggling. Please do not ever give up and KNOW there is a way out of your misery. The power of your mind and the belief in your heart can work miracles. We are entwined in this journey of living. Whether it be this story of mine, the breath of a newborn in your arms or the touch of the moonlight on the silvery waters, please know there is hope for your healing.

Herbal Support in Tick-Borne Illness with Susan McCamish

Lyme disease is a serious infectious illness caused by a bacteria, borrelia burgdorferi. Once believed to be a short term conditions succinctly eradicated with 2 weeks of antibiotics, clean and simple as strep throat, we have harshly learned the ugly way– via 40 years of clinical findings and millions of people in the USA alone suffering in various states of illness, collapse and emotional and mental anguish, that Lyme takes chronic forms. This cousin to syphillus worms its way swiftly from bloodstream to connective tissue, joints, organs and glands and finally to the spinal fluid and brain— damage can be profound and even deadly. This illness needs the SPOTLIGHT now! Education, research, support on personal, medical and societal levels is needed yesterday! We must push onwards and bring change— listen to my beautiful theme song in my intro to each program.

How blessed I am to host Lyme Light Radio with Katina each week on Transformation Talk Radio.com in partnership with the award winning The Dr Pat Show and on AM Talk Radio in Southern New England WBLQ 1230.

Neurological Lyme Borreliosis with Dr. Alan MacDonald

It is with great honor I interview the preeminent Lyme disease research pathologist, Dr. Alan MacDonald, on Lyme Light Radio with Katina Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 4 pm ET/1 pm PT.

Many people recall Dr. MacDonald and his historic work linking Lyme disease to Alzheimer while at South Hampton Hospital Labs, NY from the documentary film “Under Our Skin”. Sadly, the US Government, nor the CDC would fund further studies Dr. MacDonald aimed to do, proving the neurological connection advanced Lyme disease infections can create in humans. MS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s type illnesses all are potential outcomes of a bacterial infection caused by borrelia burgdorferi and transmitted by the common tick.

Dr. MacDonald has much to share on air with us. This is an interview I have been so excited for that I feel like a kid before Christmas, as I know this brilliant man’s ongoing current research  could change the face of out future regarding chronic neurological illnesses.

Though the CDC in 2013 upped their annual estimated new acute Lyme disease infection count from the long-standing 30,000 per year to a ten time higher figure of 300,000, we can’t help but wonder where these other several hundred thousands of cases each year have been?

What symptoms do these people exhibit and yet have not been diagnosed as Lyme disease? Are they dementia cases? Fibromyalgia? ALS? RA? MS? CFS?

Dr. MacDonald has proven still births and stroke to be Lyme induced. He cited an astonishing fact to me. Germany has a public health care system with meticulous diagnostic and treatment record keeping. They acknowledge Lyme disease diagnosis by clinical symptoms and openly treat it. In 2012 they reported 750,000 new Lyme disease cases. In 2013, they recorded 1,000,000 new Lyme disease cases! This country is a 1/3 the size of the USA. Our country is in denial, using an outdated lab test, screening for only 1 strain out of 300+ for Borrelia burgdorferi, and will adhere to a standard diagnosis from the IDSA and CDC of merely 4 qualifying symptoms for Lyme disease diagnostics:

  • Bulls-eye rash
  • Joint pain – knee
  • Meningitis migraine
  • Bell’s Palsy – facial droop

The former clinical diagnostic evaluation of pre-1980’s is no longer ‘permitted’ and physicians must rely on confirmation from a blood test, or they tell a patient ‘you do not have Lyme disease’, though a patient presents with couples of symptoms; joint pain and headaches, heart palpitations and knee pain, facial droop and weakness in extremities. The list goes on.

Please join us on TheDrPatShow.com, LymeLightRadio.com and TransformationTalkRadio.com for a cutting edge show!! This wil be one to listen to repeatedly.

ImageAlan MacDonald, MD, is a pathologist with a brilliant career spanning over 30 yrs. In the late 1970’s, he worked diligently to create tests to detect the newly discovered pathogen Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb). Dr. MacDonald was among the first to study Bb in humans. He was the first to publish evidence of Bb cystic forms, granular forms and cell wall deficient forms.

In 2008, Dr. Eva Sapi and Dr. Alan MacDonald published a groundbreaking paper concerning Bb forming protective biofilms, similar to other bacterial pathogens, providing evidence Bb infections are harder to eradicate and more difficult to treat. This information can be seen in the movie Under Our Skin.

Through his research, and with the help of other leading researchers in the fields of molecular and cellular biology, Dr. MacDonald is continuing to pioneer a broader understanding about the behavior of Borrelia burgdorferi as an infectious pathogen.

Thank you Dr. MacDonald for your commitment to the Lyme disease crisis, for your tireless research and for joining me on “Lyme Light Radio”.

Lyme Disease Co-Infections and Mold Issues with Dr. Neil Nathan

Ticks, the primary vector which transmit the bacterial infection of Lyme disease, are like miniature cesspools. They carry numerous other microbes, contributing symptoms akin to Lyme but slightly nuanced. These “co-infections” are difficult to diagnose via blood testing, and are maiming hundreds of thousands of people annually.

Joining us on Lyme Light Radio, Wednesday January 22, 1pm PT/4pm ET is Dr. Neil Nathan, the author of the wonderful nook, “On Hope and Healing: For Those Who Have Fallen Through the Medical Cracks”.

Practicing at the renowned Lyme savvy Integrative medicine facility, Gordon Medical, in Santa Rosa, CA, Dr. Nathan brings us his expertise, keen intelligence and knowledge of how mold issues contribute to the Lyme disease equation, as well.

ImageAt the welcome invitation of his longstanding friend and colleague, Eric Gordon, MD, he joined Gordon Medical Associates in April 2009. This allowed him to become a part of this medical community, along with the bonus of being closer to his three children and his wife’s family, all of whom reside on the West Coast. Dr. Nathan opened the Fort Bragg branch of GMA in August, 2009.

Neil is a gifted physician who is passionate about healing. Since he loves to learn, he considers himself “always a student”, and gets fired up about learning new approaches that might work for his patients. Never satisfied to just learn superficially, when something grabs Neil’s attention, he will research and study with the person who really KNOWS how to do it, so he can maximize its clinical benefits.

Neil’s specialties fit right in with Gordon Medical Associates – Lyme Disease, thyroid disease, chronic illness, chronic pain, autism, and the use of functional medicine and alternative medicine whenever possible. Dr. Nathan has extensive experience with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue, and uses the bio-medical approaches created by his good friend, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum. For Lyme Disease, Neil works with botanicals, herbs and homeopathy, as well as antibiotics when necessary. He also has expertise in working with chronic pain clinics in Minnesota and Missouri, and really appreciates the opportunity to help relieve pain for those who are suffering. Regardless of the illness or condition, he spends time learning and getting to know each patient to determine how gently or aggressively to treat, and in what manner.

In addition to his background as a family practice physician, Dr. Nathan is also trained in a number of adjuvant modalities, including classical homeopathy, osteopathic manipulation including craniosacral therapy, prolotherapy, hypnosis and Reichian therapy. Dr. Nathan is passionate about seeking healing for those who come to him in need.

LLR is heard in Southern New England on WBLQ 1230AM and streams live on the internet at TheDrPatShow.com, LymeLightRadio.com and WBLQ.net

Having personally heard Dr. Nathan present at the International Lyme and Associated Disease conferences, I am truly honored to welcome this remarkable physician and educator to my show. He is a gifted healer with an enormous wealth of insight into the “Lyme equation”.

Please make sure to tune in, out interview witll be archived at TheDrPatShow.com and on iTunes, too!

Thank you listeners and Dr. Nathan.
