Living Well With Lyme Disease Healing Workshop

Lyme disease is the fastest spreading infectious illness of the modern day, exploding to the rate of over 300,000 cases annually in the USA alone, with an estimated another 500,000 not being recognized by the average physician or lab and being misinterpreted as an autoimmune illness. HIV at its peak in the early 1980s showed 104,000 new cases annually. This epidemic is spreading faster with ticks as the primary carrier and all demographics and ages groups potentially vulnerable. We are in the midst of a public health care crisis with scant support for the afflicted or those in question.

Dr Richard Horowitz, MD, Dr Tom Francescott, ND and myself, Katina Makris, CCH, CIH offer an all inclusive weekend for Lyme disease resource and recovery at beautiful Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. Please join us June 17-19, 2016.

We address the medical aspects, detoxification protocols, homeopathic support and emotional and spiritual sides of this often chronic illness in a nurturing and wholesome environment. No one leaves without gaining tools and insights for their mending as well as information for loved ones.

“Lyme Light Radio with Katina” Celebrates One-Year Anniversary!

standing blk dress

JOIN US ON THIS MOMENTOUS, HAPPY DAY- LYME LIGHT RADIO’S FIRST BIRTHDAY– wow!!

Special anniversary show on Wednesday August 13, 4PM ET – celebrating our debut, on August 14, 2013, of “Lyme Light Radio with Katina” on a breezy summer day. My first guest was the talented nurse practitioner and author of “Nature’s Dirty Needle”, Mara Williams. Friends and colleagues in the Lyme crisis, our inaugural show was an instant winner. With phone calls, emails, tweets and Facebook posts quickly flying- Mara and I and the much of the Lyme community were all delighted.

The weeks ahead unfurled. I kept reaching out to prominent doctors, advocates, foundations, scientists and patients in the Lyme community to be guests and BINGO! Everyone but one person has said YES to coming on air LIVE on Wednesday with me on “Lyme Light Radio” to help educate, inspire, and bring help to our world-wide audience.

If you go back and look (and listen) to our archived podcasts at http://lymelightradio.com, you will be stunned at the caliber of absolutely top rate guests we have, and when you listen to our programs, the level of quality information shared so generously by these time burdened, passionate, cutting edge individuals is astounding!! They are teaching us WHY we have been getting so sick from tick borne illnesses and explaining HOW to get well -this is breathtaking, profound information- coming to you weekly,for free!!

In this amazing year I have had the great good fortune to interview guests from all over the world involved with Lyme disease- Lyme Poland, Lyme UK, Jenny O’Dea in Ireland, Lyme Norway, Canadian expert Dr Murakami and many prominent physicians and researchers such as Dr John Aucott, Dr Klinghardt, Dr Alan MacDonald, Pamela Weintraub, Dr Kerry Clarke, and more!— the line up has been sensational!! “Lyme Light Radio” has had an incredible first year! We must celebrate!

To be your host is a true honor. Every week I am given the opportunity to converse on a topic that is essentially critical to our future and something I care about deeply. The Lyme disease epidemic has raged too long, too many lives have been damaged, and too much lack of understanding has propagated an international public health crisis we can barely catch up to now. Time is NOT on our side, but the airwaves are! This dialogue we have started on “Lyme Light Radio” is pivotal and potentially transformative on so many levels. Please help me thank all the powers that be; our sponsors, my network, and my production team for helping us air “Lyme Light Radio with Katina.” Without this support we would not be here at all.

Dr. Pat Baccili, Transformation Talk Radio network owner and award winning host of the #1 show in Independent Talk Radio show, “The Dr. Pat Show,” is my guiding star. http://www.thedrpatshow.com/drp_drpat_baccili.php
Thank you Dr. Pat for giving me this chance, supporting my dream and partnering with me on so many special events – The Martha’s Vineyard Gala, The TBDA Masquerade Ball Live From NYC, and John Donnally’s cycle across America, ‘Bite Back for a Cure’ were beyond phenomenal.

To Linda Firing, Jesica Henderson, Kim Hunt, thank you for coaching me and my office assistants in radio production and so much ‘hand holding’ as newbies.

My crew at WBLQ is the BEST! Station owner Chris DiPaulo, Brian Sullivan, and Lorren Kleinkauf, each week you make that magic elixir run so smoothly – by finessing Skype contacts to my guests overseas, to John Donnally on a cellphone in the prairies, or a dropped caller in Montana, and just plain ol’ studio technical mystery that you handle with such ease. You back me up and produce our now ‘go to’ broadcasts faithfully. I understand people stop you in the street and rave about our program! How great it that? Runaway hit right away – on a key topic! Cheers mates- you are so fun, too!

To our sponsors who helped fund the production of this show – Advanced Cell Training, BioResource Inc., Deer DeFence, TBDAlliance, I am indebted. Without you, we could not bring all this help and knowledge to others. Your belief in me and this program’s mission means so much to me!

It will be time to start our fundraising and sponsorship drive soon for this next season. Listeners and friends, I hope you can help even in small amounts when we start our campaign– the show must go on!! WE have a great program going now, it is too key to loose this edge and validation of a silent epidemic. I will let you know as we start the fundraising efforts.

Special thanks no my personal assistants, Charlotte Miller, Chloe Rapp, Catherine Bailey, Arianna Meehan – OMG – you keep me organized and help me coordinate our brilliant guests and sponsors. The details are endless and the technology beyond my capacity. Bless your professionalism, camaraderie, enthusiasm and often weird hours that we pull.

To our listeners I say bless you! My heart is in “Lyme Light Radio” for the all too many millions maimed by lyme disease and co-infections. I cannot sit on the sidelines and let the suffering continue. This illness needs to be thoroughly wiped out, preventable, diagnosed properly and no longer ravaging multi-generations.

My intention is that you learn something new every week on “Lyme Light Radio,” gain a glimmer of hope, feel less alone. We broadcast out of Westerly, RI on WBLQ 1230 AM with a listening range of 1,500,000 residents, streaming live on the web via the Dr. Pat Show syndicate and Transformation Talk Radio, we span the globe to multi-millions! Our shows are archived forever http://lymelightradio.com, and on the Transformation Talk Radio mobile app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttr.transformationtalkradio.

I get emails from all over! Germany, Belgium, France, Poland, Iraq, Australia, Canada, Uruguay, Iowa, Arkansas, Florida, you name it! Thank you listeners for tuning in with us, for following, for sharing tweets and FB posts, helping others find help via this show.

In gratitude to you all, my anniversary show this Wednesday August 13 is a book giveaway. All listeners can email us at lymelightradio@gmail.com with your name and address and I will send you an autographed copy of my award winning memoir “Out of the Woods: Healing Lyme Disease – Body, Mind and Spirit.”

Also, this is a different format this week – I am the guest!! My wonderful assistant Catherine Bailey will interview me!! Tune in 1 PM pt/4 PM ET and find out why I wrote my memoir, how “Lyme Light Radio” got started and what we will be doing in the year ahead! The tables are turned. I have to answer the questions!!

In parting I would like to say I am truly grateful for my life journey.

Each of you whom I meet out ‘on the road’ when I speak touch me. Your stories are profound, your hearts are pleading and your souls are mighty. I feel your pain and I won’t stop working for us all until we affect a true healing.

It is my privilege to host “Lyme Light Radio.” We will change the future. I wear this mantle now with pride, for together we will make a difference. Thank you one and all.

We have so much to look forward to– one new addition will be a monthly show where citizens of a specific state will call in live with their stories, politics and advances. I want to showcase what is happening or not happening in assorted endemic areas that are often overlooked. I also look forward to bringing on more scientists whom are working to crack the ‘Lyme code’ of systemic collapse for so many. WE will learn alot.

Massachusetts and Lyme Disease: State of Affairs Update

This week’s Lyme Light Radio broadcast is a chock-filled show. Massachusetts has long been in the ‘hot seat’ regarding all matters related to Lyme disease. Though riddled at pandemic proportions – Cape Cod, The Vineyard, Nantucket, Dover and more showing up to 90% of ticks infected, people being constantly misdiagnosed, many under treated and lost in the insurance company shuffle. Sadly, physicians have been legally limited to only 60 day allotments of antibiotic use, with often tragically ill patients. 

But, the tides are turning, due to the mighty work of potent Lyme activists like Trish McCleary of S.L.A.M., Dr. Enid Haller and Dr. Roni DeLuz creating resource Lyme centers, healing retreats and devoted hot-line support from Janet Dooley.

These impassioned, talented women ALL join us on Wednesday 9/18 4PM ET, 1PM PT to update us on the state of affairs in Massachusetts. Is there hope for America, if we follow their lead?

Listen live on 1230 AM WBLQ southern New England and streaming live on TheDrPatShow.com, and TransformationTalkRadio.com

Put Katina Makris in the search window – click on the show. We will archive a podcast 24 hours later! 

This is a dynamic venue. Don’t miss us and call in with questions during airtime at 1-800-930-2819.

Pamela Weintraub, author of “Cure Unknown” on Lyme Light Radio, 9/11

Mark your calendars now! Wednesday, September 11, 4pm EST / 1pm PSTthe award winning author and esteemed medical journalist, Pamela Weintraub, shared her second version of “Cure Unknown” with us on ‘Lyme Light Radio with Katina’. 

This is the most revered book on Lyme disease in print. Pamela revealed the mismanagement and corruption surrounding Lyme disease that has obfuscated proper diagnosis and treatment of this serious, life altering infectious illness. Decades of medical, insurance industry and political ‘game-playing’ have colluded to deny the illness and millions of lives have been jeopardized.

Pamela pulls no punches. Like a master sleuth, she unravels the ugly truth that Lyme disease has been ‘ignored’ by the very institutions we were taught to trust. 

I cannot wait to discover what Pamela has to share with us on-air 9/11 regarding her 5 year, follow-up with Cure Unknown II. Her news should be enormously enlightening!

It is my true privilege to interview Pamela Weintraub. She is one of my life heros, having recovered from Lyme disease herself and out there fighting for change.

Tune in to WBLQ 1230AM in southern New England, Long Island, NY 4pm EST and streaming live on TransformationTalkRadio.com and TheDrPatShow.com. You can listen to us anywhere in the world! This show is a MUST for anyone interested in the real story behind Lyme disease!

Schedule for August 18, Martha’s Vineyard, Lyme disease Events

Tick Borne Disease Alliance, based in NYC, and Martha’s Vineyard Lyme Center host a chock full day of Lyme disease educational, awareness and fundraising events. This is a significant day for the future health of our nation, as Lyme disease has now surpassed HIV as the fastest spreading infectious illness in the USA.

The CDC admits that the 30,000 cases of Lyme disease reported to them annually, are likely a mere 10% of the true number of cases actually contracted. When not treated promptly with pharmaceuticals in the early weeks of an infection, this shape shifting bacterial infection can morph into auto-immune style symptoms and illnesses. Millions of people in the USA are infected with Lyme disease and neither they nor the doctors are aware of this, as the standard lab test most turn to (if they even rcognize the Lyme suspicion at all) have a 70% false negative error rate. This means many of afflicted folks could ‘get well’, IF they got a proper Lyme diagnosis and treatments, instead of coping and deteriorating with Lupus, MS, ALS, fibromyalgia, CFS, RA, migraines, neuropathy and more.

TBDA, Lyme Light Radio, ILADS and more aim to end the denial, confusion and suffering surrounding the Lyme disease situation with their awarness, educational and fundraising efforts. Please join us on Martha’s Vineyard for this stupendous day, August 18. Or, tune in on-line to TheDrPatShow.com and listen in.

Healing Intention from Katina Makris speech, Lyme Disease Awareness Rally, Washington DC, 2013

Katina Makris Lyme Rally DC
Katina Makris Lyme Rally DC

“In order to overcome Lyme and be well, it is vital to use the power of our mind-body healing power. You must BELIEVE  in your vibrant future. You must SEE yourself there. Belief is a powerful energy. It triggers the brain to create healthy, feel good neuro-transmitters, which it turn jump start the immune system. BELIEF is something we can each instill. YOU can set a healing intention of your own. You can set an image of yourself in your mind’s eye that is strong and vital and glowing. I did this when I was wrecked, 5 years trapped at home, trembling on my living room sofa, in despair and too weak to walk without help. My doctor said my nervous system was so fragile that in older days he  would have hospitalized me on tranquilizers for repair. Instead, he had me mimic the rest cure in my home. It was an isolating, cavernous time for me.

But, receiving a Lyme diagnosis after 5 years of prominent New England doctors and hospitals telling me nothing was wrong with me other than chronic fatigue syndrome and migraines, I actually felt HOPE. Receiving the Lyme diagnosis gave me hope, because I BELIEVED I could overcome a bacterial infection. That belief gave me power. That power gave me a mission. That mission made me work hard on my commitment. And, I learned how to use the mind-body healing pathway. In those months daily, I visualized myself as strong, vital, radiant and healthy, spreading my arms high and wide like a grand copper beech tree.

And, Here I stand before you, 8 years later, healthy, whole and that very image I willed myself to be. No more Lyme disease, no more chronic fatigue syndrome and I am impassioned to help change the future. To change the future of this Lyme disease atrocity. To help us all use our collective intention to bring healing for all.

Right now here today, in addition, I utter a plea—May this illness be stopped! May the people in power start to listen.  Your voices, your tireless efforts, your willingness to leave your homes, and many of you on limited resources, find your way here to Freedom Plaza is an outpouring of passion, of intention, of commitment, of belief! I applaud every brave spirit here today. Your will is mighty, your heart is powerful and together we are creating a groundswell. Our history, our collective story, our understanding of what Lyme disease looks like and feels like, moves us to take risk, to speak the truth and to manifest a change.  We will amend the suffering, the denial, the crooked thinking.

I believe in the power of the mind, the calling of our heart, and the mighty force of our will. When we can draw on these inner resources well then we can move mountains. We can affect change. We can heal ourselves, others, the planet. If we can all focus together, aligning our hearts and minds in a common energy, then that unified force gains power and momentum.

I believe we can change the future of Lyme disease. I feel the awareness shifting, the call of hundreds of thousands of voices in dire need, pleading for help. I am honored to be a voice for others, to push the envelope, to shift the tides regarding this illness. And, I need us to all bind together.

In my final moments with you now,  I would like to set a healing intention. A healing intention for the Lyme community, as well as each of you individually. Let us take a moment together. Close your eyes if it helps you to center. Put your hand over your heart. In your mind’s eye see yourself as powerful and strong. Now, drop your awareness from your mind, down into your heart. Feel its steady, knowing presence.  It is from our hearts that we heal. Now we bind our mind, our heart and willpower with an intention.

I speak these words of healing intention, with hope. Hope for your healing, for the Lyme community’s healing and for an end to this epidemic. Here are my words of healing intention:

I believe in a healthy future for myself, for my loved ones and those who suffer with Lyme disease.

I trust that the right people, resources and energies will align to arrest this epidemic. 

With my own personal will and intention I move forward into a happier, healthier, Lyme-free tomorrow.

May each and every one of us be guided and protected today and always. 

 

Thank you for having me here today. You are wonderful, gifted people. It is my privilege to be in your company.”
