Guest Teachers -Dane Boggs and Dane Johnson, join “Walking the Lyme Road” at Art of Living Retreat Center – bringing Rife technology and nutritional information to recovery

Dr.Jodie Dashore and Katina Makris, are leading a Lyme disease and autoimmune illness healing and educational weekend retreat from May 10-14, 2017, at the Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC.

Aimed to bring much needed information to the Southern states of the USA, where this infectious illness is surging rapidly, with migratory birds dropping Lyme disease infected ticks into the local habitat, many individuals have become infected with the dangerous bacteria borrelia burgdorferi and associated tick borne infections, yet regional doctors are completely unaware and not properly testing or diagnosing.

Thousands of cases, even with the acute onset fever and tell-tale bull’s eye rash, are being brushed off as spider bites, or a suspect virus. Medical and state professionals in regions like Florida, Arkansas, Texas, South Carolina, Mississippi and more, somehow ‘believe’ this rapidly spreading infectious disease does not cross their state border. Though we know nearby Virginia and Maryland are endemically stricken!

When the Lyme disease spirochete bacterium migrates from the blood stream into tissues, joints, glands, organs and even the spinal fluid and to the brain, the infection induces profound symptoms and clinically ‘looks like’ fibromyalgia, RA, CFS, Lupus, MS, parkinson’s, ALS, dementia, ADD/ADHD, bi-polar, autism and assorted neuropathies and heart conditions. Even cases of Interstitial Cystitis, IBS, migraines need to be examined for Lyme disease as a root cause.

Our medical system is using a very faulty, outdated 40 year old ELISA antibody test, and scientific research money has not been granted to unravel the mechanisms of this aggressive bacterial illness, a cousin to syphilis. Thankfully, the pioneering ILADS.org community is educating health care practitioners on what cutting edge lab and tests to use for diagnostics and early acute treatments are successful with 6-12 weeks of rotational antibiotics and anti-parasitic meds.

The GREAT tragedy is when Lyme is ‘missed’ in the early weeks of infection and then -8 months, 3 years, 20 years later we find severely compromised patients with a vast array of symptoms, endless pain, catastrophic fatigue and cognitive and neurological damages.

Dr. Dashore and myself are both survivors of advanced neurological Lyme disease and have thousands of clinician hours between us, using the best of Integrative and Natural Medicine techniques, to help restore the damages the infection induces, as well as dealing with the emotional and spiritual recovery process from this chronic debilitating illness.

We are honored to welcome two VERY talented special guest teachers to “Walking The Lyme Road” weekend. Both of these men, named Dane, have recovered fully as well from advanced Lyme cases, without heavy antibiotic warfare use.

Dane Boggs, will educate us on the forms of frequency and energy healing, in his presentation on Rife technology and reiki. And, Dane Johnson will help us understand the aspects of nutrition and deficiencies we must address for healing.

 

About Dane Boggs:

Dane was born in Charlottesville, Virginia and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah where he graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science Degree. After college he purchased and remodeled homes in Pittsburgh before settling in Jacksonville in 1981. He started Boggs Construction Co. in 1983 where he remodeled and built Custom Homes along the First Coast until 2006.

In 2004 Dane was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. He used oral antibiotics for one year and although he improved, he was still sick. He then used intravenous antibiotics for a second year. They also helped him but not enough to beat the disease. As he says, “A stalemate had been reached between the Lyme and myself”. He knew he had to try something different and he started using an Electrical Frequency Generator -Rife machine. Using certain electrical frequencies for Lyme he became much healthier. He attributes his return to health as a result of Rife technology and Reiki.  Dane became a distributor of the GB4000 Frequency Generator and Mopa in 2008.

In 2009 he co-founded the Northeast Florida Lyme Association – NEFLA with a few friends and Lyme Disease sufferers. In 2014 NEFLA became the FLDA – Florida Lyme Disease Association. At that time Dane resigned from the FLDA to pursue his passions, Rife and Reiki.

As Dane regained his health in 2008 he also finished his 200 hour yoga training certification. He received his Qi Gong training and certification from Pragata and Master Hong Liu of China. But he feels the introduction to Reiki helped him the most. It boosted his immune system and helped him beat Lyme Disease. “I am so fortunate and grateful to be well again, Reiki was an integral part of my recovery.” He feels we do not need to suffer as we do, Rife and Reiki can bring us greater harmony, health and happiness. Amazing things can happen when you tap into the healing energy of the universe.” Dane recently completed his book, “REIKI AWAKENING, A Spiritual Journey” in 2012. Revisions were made in 2014.

Overcome Autoimmune Illness & Lyme Disease: a survivor and practitioner’s advice

With my newest book available in paperback, kindle and nook, I wanted to give you a glimpse into why I felt it was so critical to give the public my knowledge on how to recover from Autoimmune Illnesses and Lyme disease, now crippling to USA to the tune of 50 million people and around the globe at 250 million. Mending is feasible, and dependency on pharmaceuticals need not be for a lifetime. I beat the odds to mend 100% and I believe many others can too, when they reclaim their personal power.

Here is the INTRODUCTION from  –“Autoimmune Illness & Lyme Disease Recovery Guide, Mending Body, Mind & Spirit” for you to delve into. This is a VERY worthy book of self help tools and extra healthcare resources. 

“Chronic health care problems have begun to surface at an alarming rate in recent decades. The spectrum of autoimmune illnesses has been in my lens since I first fell seriously ill in the summer of 2000, with what was initially deemed to be a sinus infection, then probable walking pneumonia, and finally labeled as chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic migraine headaches. Five years later, totally bedridden, broken, and newly divorced, I learned that actually I was maimed and struggling with several “hidden” autoimmune cover finalinfections. The primary misdiagnosed culprit was borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. I also hosted Epstein-Barr virus at frighteningly high levels, a parasite called babesia, and a whopping overgrowth of fungi. My lovely home in the New Hampshire countryside was mold infested and my immune system was spinning out of control with raging inflammation and multiple allergies, plus all sorts of depletions. With a shiny bright eight-year-old son under my wing, could I ever live to see him grown or be well enough to go to his Little League games?

After endless visits to specialists and renowned hospitals in New England with scant success of recovery, good fortune finally appeared in the able hands of a sterling clinical nutritionist colleague of mine who knew how to handle these runaway infectious “bugs” and, more importantly, how to restore the malfunctions of my failing body. We worked on detoxifying me from all sorts of externally and internally created toxins, rebuilding my fatigued adrenal glands and thyroid, helping my mitochondria create fuel again and balancing out all sorts of neurotransmitters and blood sugar swings. It took me five years of devoted adherence to lifestyle, dietary, and emotional changes, and it worked! I mended 100 percent.

Even as a holistic healthcare practitioner myself, I had to examine my life and what made me fall so ill and vulnerable to these microbes, and to allow myself the time and process to embrace transformation at all planes—physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. As a homeopath, I thought I was versed in helping others heal. This experience asked me to learn even more.

The great good of this journey is that I have spent the last fifteen years learning about the crossover currents of the exploding public health care crisis of Lyme disease (and other tick borne diseases) and the relationship to autoimmune diseases. Though there is obvious linkage between them all, science has not yet pieced together the entire jigsaw puzzle. Some brilliant researchers and very talented and courageous practitioners are forging the way. My instincts tell me that when all the “dots” are finally connected, we will fully understand how these assorted microbes can trigger and mimic Lupus and MS and Alzheimer’s and more. Right now though, what I can offer is the invaluable lessons of my own journey, which translates beyond the personal to the multiple millions who walk in the same shoes I did.

Chronic disease in the autoimmune and Lyme disease spectrum presents an individual with multiple challenges. Facing the realization that you are seeking talent and sources outside yourself to find wellness again is daunting and at times extremely frustrating. The endless days of pain, fatigue, solitude, dependency, and confusion seem endless. Many of us experience loss and despair. And yet, we also want to feel hope—hope for bright, happy times and relief from our suffering. Also, hope that someone will know how to cure us!

In these pages I share my understanding of what mending involves. When we fall ill to chronic disease we fracture in a certain way. Things are never quite the same. There is a sense of displacement or that you just do not feel quite right and that you want to correct it all. What I suggest is that something rather grand is being asked of you in this time of disorder. You are being asked to reflect upon you life status—your behaviors and choices and your habits. And then, you are being asked to make some changes in order to mend.

This book provides a toolbox of assorted options to consider. We explore a great deal of what encompasses health and healing and why we get sick. Also, we look at the role of various key factors that create the terrain for autoimmune illness and Lyme disease to blossom. Why do some of us fall ill to these conditions but not others? And, most importantly, how can I mend from the disease and reclaim my well-being and vitality?

The great arc presiding over the entire journey for me, however, has been the enormous breadth and depth of spirituality’s presence. Serious states, like these diseases present, ultimately bring us into concert with energy beyond the simple self. We are entering the domain of personal transformation and what in modern times is akin to a quest—a quest for higher knowledge, for inner strength, and for assistance in the darkest of times. This journey asks for faith and guidance and an unfurling of the powerful connection we innately bear between our mind and our body and our spirit. For we are marvelous and miraculous beings. We just need to learn how to stitch it all together.

I wrote this book for the all too many who feel at odds with themselves while ill or are perhaps are a caregiver of someone in need. We bear enormous internal gifts. However, many of us have not been taught how to “turn on” the healing codes, or we have forgotten. Mending helps us find our inner compass, to recalibrate during a time of lost navigation and to set our sites on a positive outcome. Like any worthy voyage, not every day is a smooth passage. But you can still reach your destination! Optimal health can be attainable even in a stormy crossing. What I present is a fresh look at healing tools to apply. Not all these modalities will work for you, but they are worth examining.

In deepest respect I need to honor my very wise and gifted spiritual teacher and mentor, Dr. Meredith Young-Sowers, who trained me to become an Intuitive Healer and teacher. The metaphysical model I work with in this book is spring-boarded from her thirty-five years of knowledge and experience. The Stillpoint School of Integrative Life Healing and her model focus on the Seven Energy Chakras and correlating bodily systems and emotional couplings we all house. My own healing work with individuals and groups grew from her model. We will look at autoimmune illnesses, Lyme disease, and how to promote healing. These skills I share worked for me and many others.

My professional healing work with Lyme disease and autoimmune illnesses after thirty years in practice as a Classical Homeopath brings another lens into these conditions. In totality you will discover a multi-dimensional approach to recovery, one that incorporates natural medicine, orthodox pragmatics, and metaphysics. Most specifically we will chart a course together through the pivotal domain of personal transformation. For true healing happens on the inside.

Namaste,

Mending: Autoimmune Illnesses & Lyme Disease

MEDICAL DISCLAIMER

Please note that I am trained and certified as a Classical Homeopath (CCH) and Spiritual Healer (CIH). Even though I have worked with individuals in assorted forms of distress and illness, I am not permitted to make a medical diagnosis, perform a physical exam, or administer pharmaceuticals.

My orientation and work has always been to help support and reinforce the person and his or her natural bodily function, and not treat the disease, through the use of homeopathics and spiritual energy healing.

Throughout the pages of this book I refer to particular disease states and syndromes, and additionally I recommend integrative medicine doctors as well as allopathic physicians and naturopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, clinical nutritionists, homeopaths, and other healers. My message is that many of these chronic illnesses require more than one specific system of approach in order to mend and achieve a more optimal level of health, and ultimately move into remission or even cure.

Please note however, that I do not attempt to treat or cure any of these conditions throughout these pages, but offer you suggestions and guidelines to seek out the properly trained and licensed professionals to work with you individually in your case.

My goal is to help initiate a stronger utilization of an integrated healthcare system in the USA and for people to realize they obtain much more inner healing power than they ever dreamed. The information provided here is for your self help and education.

The author and publisher do not attempt to offer cure for any particular disease.

I plan to bring you further excerpts from this book in the weeks ahead. I will be out teaching recovery workshops and giving presentations throughout 2016, so I will post that schedule soon, too.

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.

National Lyme Disease Rally, Washington, DC, May 25

Please consider coming to Washington, DC for a rally on a public health crisis–Lyme Disease, the #1 fastest spreading infectious illness in the USA. MayDay is the time and place to urge out government and populace to ‘wake up’ to the hidden epidemic

ALL people of all ages, nationalities, regions can be infected by this tricky bacteria, transmitted by common ticks. Your support and presence is essential. See details below:

MAYDAY 2013!
SATURDAY, MAY 25th, 2013
FREEDOM PLAZA
10:30 AM – 2:30 PM
WASHINGTON, DC

Please plan on joining us this Memorial Day weekend at FREEDOM PLAZA in Washington, DC, to show your support for Lyme disease patients, friends and family, promote awareness and URGE CHANGES!

Why a Rally?

Lyme disease and related infections and complications negatively affect millions of lives everyday, yet the denial and ignorance surrounding our disease(s) is astounding. We continue to face far too many needless issues, including (but certainly not limited to) accurate testing, diagnosis/misdiagnoses, an uninformed and misinformed medical community, effective treatments, insurance company denials, obtaining disability, and the high costs of available treatments. The multitude of issues surrounding this highly politicized disease(s) is so vast that the rally is not focusing in on one particular issue for MAYDAY 2013. Pick one, Be sure to put those issues on your Rally signs for the world to see!

As in years’ past, this year’s MAYDAY Rally will help to promote awareness of Lyme disease, to continue to build camaraderie within the ever-growing community, and to keep the pressure on our elected officials and insurance companies to take action regarding their negligence.

What is THE most important aspect of any rally or protest?

PEOPLE, multitudes of us! LOTS! Droves! This Rally needs as many humans as possible to be the success that we all need it to be (Think MILLION HUMAN MARCH!). We need large numbers to effectively present our case not only before Congress and our President, but to the media and the world. There is nothing like a rally in front of the White House, in the heart of our nation’s capitol, to insure that the Lyme message is heard, loud and clear, and that the correct info (as opposed to all of the disinfo that we see daily) is made available!

Friday Evening, May 24th:

We will be gathering at the official event hotel, The Hilton Alexandria Mark Center (please see hotel info below), to meet and greet each other and create signs for the protest the following day. This does not mean that you can’t create your sign at home. Just remember that this National Park does not allow sticks, poles or any other type of holding device for our signs — only the paper signs themselves. Your sign should be what rings true to you, whether a cure, better diagnostic tests, better treatments, better physician education, removal of the flawed IDSA treatment guidelines, etc. You will be exercising YOUR right to protest about YOUR specific issues!

Sign Design Tips:
-Use fewer words so that you can make the font size of your letters/words/images larger and thicker. Trying to cram too much info onto a sign makes for poor visibility from afar. If someone needs to stand a foot or less away from a protest sign to understand it, then you may need to rethink your message strategy.

– Bold colors and contrasting colors stand out more and have a much higher visibility than soft pastels or light, pale colors. GO BIG & BOLD for MAXIMUM IMPACT!

AND BE SURE TO GO GREEN! Even if you cannot afford to purchase an official MAYDAY 2013 t-shirt, please wear your fave green t-shirt so that we will have the highest visibility and impact possible! Also, rain or shine, please bring along a green umbrella to help as a shield from rain or sun, and so that, when used in unison, we make a unique, colorful impact!

Saturday Morning, May 25th

Pre-10:00 AM: Please feel free to get up early and lend a hand with whatever needs to be done prior to the event’s opening time.
