Lyme Disease Author and Radio Host Speaks in Concord NH

Though the snows still blanket the land, the air is warming and the sun soothing to a softer hue. How happily we New Englanders welcome the thaw of early spring, the sap running in the maples and the sweet smoke of sugaring shacks at work! We also now perk up the antennae to tick season around the bend.

The tiny insects, in the spider family actually, harbor the atrocious bacterial infection of Lyme disease and other illness inducing organisms. What is tricky too is that the baby tick nymphs hatching out now in late March and April are very tiny and translucent. Their outer shell is still forming yet they can carry the diseases. We must all be alert as we rake out flower beds, clean up wood piles and winter blow-downs, and our pets and live stock take to the fields, woods and yards.

Katina I. Makris,renowned Homeopath and educator,who specializes in Lyme disease, welcomes all to the Concord Library at 45 Green St, Concord, NH Monday March 23, 7pm. She covers a great deal of information as well as introduces her award winning Lyme recovery memoir and healing guide OUT OF THE WOODS, HEALING LYME DISEASE, BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, released by Helios Press, in a new second edition.

Speaker One 2015- Skyhorse- Concord

With tick season in motion, come join us for a great evening, as Katina heads out on her nationwide book tour, and as Keynote Speaker at the famed TickedOffMusicFest.com series– fundraising and Lyme awareness at big city venues, that bring healing, help and music together for the good of an exploding public health crisis.

The Stranger and Me- A Christmas Blessing

THE QUIET GIFT
At this season of celebration and sharing, many of us extend our love and care for one another with the traditional custom of gift giving.  Santa arrives with a slew of colored parcels or we carefully select the perfect something for a loved one during Hanukkah or Kwanza.  The preparation of cooking and shopping whirls our often hectic lives up a notch into a stratosphere of commotion.  It is fun and crazy-making both.  Amid, all the hub-bub, sometimes it is the quiet gift that reaches most deeply into our hearts.  I share my experience on such an offering.

Dashing amid the wheels of shopping carts, the grocery store is in a pre-Christmas skirmish of shoppers; hams and clementines topping the neighbors’ wares in the aisle with me. So much effort and love goes into these days of sharing and caring, it seems. I am a tad behind the curve this year, only selecting our tree this weekend, actually finding the last one in town, my family due in town tomorrow. Now, its’ bushy branches hoist my childhood ornaments of 50 years ago and my son’s tongue depressor reindeer from first grade. Prettily our tree twinkles in colored baubles, filling our home with cheer and anticipation.

The thought I am percolating on though was prompted earlier today in the market. Reaching for a cart, I backed up and brushed the heel of an elderly woman leaving with her bags of food. ¬†A mere brush of my shoe and somehow she went into stock still frozen mode. I moved ahead and then glanced back…She remained frozen. I turned and went back to check on her¬† sensing something was wrong.

“Are you Ok?” I ask.

“No. I have a back problem and now am in pain,” an icy voice and stoney glare ahead, not at me.

“I am sorry. I know about pain. Can I help you in some way?” I offer.

“No. No one can help me,” the tone is like cement.

“Should I help you wheel your cart?”

“No.”

“I am sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you. My foot just skimmed by your heel,” my sensing words express.
Stillness…no words, no eye contact.
I weave my energy from my heart towards hers…I stay still, too.¬†
She looks at me oddly. I smile. She glowers.

“I hope you have a Merry Christmas,” I suggest.

“Not possible,” she mumbles.

Am I daunted? Am I put off? A bit. 

Then a thought arises in me. Her cart is shallow in groceries compared to the others. Maybe she is alone?

“So, do you have family to help you?”

“No.”

It was then that I felt her pain, more than the back or than the shoe skimming. It was the pain of loneliness. I knew that feeling.
I then heard odd words coming from me- “Well, I hope the spirit of your ancestors visit you this holiday. They can be a sort of company, maybe?”

“Yes. I have already lit the candles for them,” the crackled woman says.

Finally, her eyes meet mine.  I see the weariness in her soul.

I smile. She tries to. I nod. She moves on, and I hear very faintly- “God bless.”

Motionless, I absorb this moment of grace.  I turn and enter into the maze of aisles. The holiday freneticism throngs, yet a quiet pool sits in my chest. Two unsuspect strangers, threaded with a simple gift- that of human compassion.

God bless us all, alone, in company, in comfort, in peace, in need, in joy.  It is the gift of the heart that touches most simply.

When Lyme is Misdiagnosed as MS

This week on Lyme Light Radio, I am proud to welcome Christine Moore. For over a decade, Christine lived with undiagnosed Lyme disease and co-infections, which her doctors believed was MS. The MS treatments had no effect, and it was only after she received a proper diagnosis from a Lyme-literate physician that she was able to recover her health.
You can hear Christine’s amazing story of recovery this Wednesday, December 17 at 4PM Eastern Time at http://www.transformationtalkradio.com or WBLQ 1230 in Southern New England.
This is a critical topic and very frank example of what has sadly been happening for too many decades to too many individuals globally, as MS rates are soaring alongside the massive spread of tick borne disease infections! I URGE you to share this advance program notice with as many folks as you can, Christine is a tremendous advocate for proper Lyme disease diagnosis and treatments. Thank you Christine R. Moore for joining me,
Katina Makris CCH CIH
IMG_0842Christine Moore has been a Chronic Lyme Disease Sufferer for over 20 years. She was mis-diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1996, after the birth of her first child. Her case seemed classic:
* 30 year old female
* stressor was childbirth
-and-
* presenting symptoms were numbness coupled with visual disturbances.
The¬†results of her neurological tests led to a¬†conclusive diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis…..or did¬†they?
Christine comes from an automotive marketing background having worked for Saturn Corporation¬†and Tesla Motors. The Tesla assignment was very short lived due to an extreme episode¬†of confusion, hypomania,¬†panic attacks and complete insomnia. This led to her resignation from her “dream job.”
Christine continued followed the MS treatment course recommended by her neurologist who practiced mainstream medicine. After taking high dose IV steroids (for the second time) and beginning the taper down process, she collapsed and spent the next 2 years bedridden.
Christine was ultimately diagnosed properly with Chronic Lyme Disease and Co-infections in 2009. Her Lyme Literate Medical Doctor was able to get her well through the use of an integrative approach addressing pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals/supplements and dietary changes.
Christine resides in Atlanta, GA with her husband, two children and family dog.

 

Dr. Kerry Clark to be on Lyme Light Radio 11/21

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

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.

Lyme Light Radio can be listened to live on WBLQ 1230AM in Southern New England or streamed online at http://www.TheDrPatShow.com and http://www.LymeLightRadio.com. We are also archived on The Dr. Pat Show website and can be found in podcast form for FREE on itunes!

Mind-Body Healing Skills with Advanced Cell Training

“Lyme Light Radio with Katina” shares an illuminating interview with Advanced Cell Training’s founder, Gary Blier. Back on air with us Wednesday October 9th, 4PM ET / 1PM PT, heard on WBLQ 1230AM in Southern New England and streaming live on three networks: TransformationTalkRadio.com, TheDrPatShow.com and WBLQ.net.

Gary Blier offers insight into the frontier spectrum of the mind-body healing pathway. Over the centuries, cultures throughout the world have respected the ability we innately harbor regarding our inner healing capacities. The use of out mind, and often the process of recalibrating a mind-set from that of a chronic illness state, to a more optimal, prospering one, can induce obvious and successful shift towards wellness, recovery and even illness elimination.

Bruce Lipton’s runaway best-seller “Biology of Belief” explains this process vividly. Dawson Church’s “The Genie In Our Genes” gives credence to the matter and stunning examples of how survivors and thrivers of catastrophe and illness recover, by integrating their mind, particular behaviors and accessing belief.

Advances Cell Training’s practical self-help healing techniques, developed by Gary Blier are useful tools for many physically and emotionally hindered individuals.

Tune in with us this week and learn more on this fascinating process of ‘resetting’ our brainwaves for more optimal healing.

Also, we will be checking in with cyclist John Donnally at the top of the show to find out just how far he has ridden this week on the ‘Bite Back For The Cure” Lyme disease awareness trek across America. I’m eager to learn just where John in on October 9 – and how the journey is fairing.

Thank you listeners!
