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

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. Even with my vivid imagination, I never dreamed as a humble homeopath in a private practice, in a tiny New England village, I would be asked to walk onto the trenches of a world wide epidemic and tend to the decimated thousands of weary souls. 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. Join me each week and let us rejoice in the good “Lyme Light Radio” induces. Happy anniversary!! May there be many more to come!!

Everyone raise a toast, even if it is your healthy green drink, to this day of celebration! 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. Stay tuned each week and tell your friends we are here broadcasting faithfully!

Kindly,
Katina I. Makris, CCH, CIH

BioResource Products and Advanced Cell Training on Lyme Light Radio 1/15

BioResource
BioResource, Michael Sheehan

I am on cloud 9, announcing the two incredible guests on Lyme Light Radio this Wednesday, January 15, 1pm pst/ 4pm est. 1230AM WBLQ in New England and streaming on TheDrPatShow.com, TransformationTalkRadio.com, LymeLightRadio.com

Mike Sheehan, founder of BioResources Inc. shares with us the wonderful Pekana Homeopathic remedies, designed in Europe, and the Beyond Balance products, both so successful in treating Lyme disease, co-infections and auto-immune illnesses. Learn how these natural medicines have such an important place in the healing spectrum of today.

BioResource Inc. Provides “Next Level” German Energy Medicines
Since 1998, and has followed its dominant mission with passion and integrity – provide American practitioners with the highest quality, German-made “energy medicines,” as well as superior education and responsive customer service.

Founded by owner Michael Sheehan, BioResource today serves as the exclusive U.S. distributor for three powerful lines of these German complementary medicines: PEKANA homeopathic-spagyric medications for drainage, detoxification, regulation and regeneration; SanPharma immune-metabolic remedies that trigger natural killer (NK) cells and support immune function; and Syntrion microbial-based “cellular re-programming” homeopathic tablets and lotions for treatment of allergies, viral infections, circulatory conditions and fungal overgrowth. The medications are FDA-listed and manufactured at GMP-certified facilities.

One key ingredient to BioResource’s overall success involved the discovery of the unique medicines manufactured by PEKANA Naturheimittel of Kisslegg, Germany. The southern German company’s superior homeopathic-spagyric formulas represent some of the finest excretion, regulation and regeneration preparations available today. The remedies are highly effective, safe, and compatible with biological processes, plus they inherently improve the health of the body’s extracellular matrix while attending to symptoms.

Moreover, PEKANA medications act in a profound manner to restore excretion of physical toxins as well as harmful electromagnetic frequencies. The oral drops and topical ointments combine cleansing and regenerative properties, and also help buffer a lifestyle that is stressful bio­chemically, electromagnetically, socially and spiritually.

Also joining us is a return guest and famed healer, Gary Blier, founder of Advanced Cell Training.

Gary Blier, author of the forthcoming book, “Healing the Incurable,” was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, a progressive, incurable disease which causes relentless arthritic joint pain and immobility. Determined to beat this condition, he visited all types of traditional and alternative providers and finally found answers in California and Mexico. The doctors, who cured him, also trained him. After years of study, he learned that these corrective disciplines he learned complement each other.

Gary combined their theories into the process now called, Advanced Cell Training. 14 years later, literally thousands of people have been empowered to overcome diseases like MS, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, and many more, by following his discoveries. Gary passionately shares with his clients how to fully train their autonomic systems for optimal performance which often results in improved health. ACT is a unique healing protocol, designed for self-help, at home use and training.

Lyme Disease is no Longer an Innocent Infection says The New Yorker Magazine

Ticked OFF Lyme keynote SpeakerLong debated as a potentially life altering pernicious illness, Lyme disease, caused by a bacterial infection, borrelia burgdorferi has confounded millions of sick people and the medical community for close to 4 decades now.

Michael Spector of The New Yorker Magazine delves into the mayhem surrounding the Infectious Disease Society’s denial that the bacteria can morph into auto-immune style illness, versus the frank clinical findings savvy doctors, patients and advocates have unearthed that does substantiate that borrelia CAN reek havoc in many many cases, leaving people bedridden and suffering.

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2013/07/01/130701fa_fact_specter?currentPage=1

It is time for the heavy lifting to begin in terms of dollars, research and medical collaboration to unite in order to unravel the disturbing controversy of Lyme disease and find effective early and late stage diagnostics, and long overdue proper treatments for both the simple acute form of the bacterial infection AND the complicated chronic symptoms so many fumble with.

Good job Michael Spector!!! He received 200,000,000 replies to an op-ed he ran regarding Mitt Romney’s political position that Lyme disease needed attention in the 2011 Presidential campaign. This enormous red flag of human outcry prompted Spector to not just ‘dis’ the Romney stance but to instead explore the Lyme disease topic—– he has finally done what we have been waiting for—opened the can of worms on a HIDDEN PUBLIC HEALTH CARE CRISIS!

Winter Solstice, a Time of Reflection

As we spiral our way into the core of darkness here in the northern hemisphere, winter solstice marking the end point to sunlight’s lowest ebb, I cannot help but reflect on the significance of this annual passage and all that accumulates around it. This year feels more poignant than many, with the ghastly murderous tragedy in Newtown, CT, USA coloring our lives; shock, betrayal, grief and anger now our table-mates this holiday season.

For twenty years I have consciously honored the winter solstice, in fact I got married on it one year! Usually, I light a fire and burn a piece of paper with all that I want to ‘let go of’ in my life written on it. The older earth based religions of the world, Mayans included, celebrated this night of extreme darkness, as over the next six months it was all about the joyous movement of daylight’s growing expansion. A time of reverence for me, I take some time on December 21 to review my year, take stock of my choices and achievements, assess my health and peer forward into just what I elect to do or not do in the year ahead.

Always I give thanks for the opportunity of living, the people dear to me and the guidance and protection I feel graced with. And yes, there a few pieces I want to let go of; each year this varies. They are placed on my paper to burn.

Tonight I sit snugly in my simple, yet comfortable home. Our newly adorned fir Christmas tree twinkles with baubles and light. My family is fed and safe. I feel deeply satisfied with the enormous amount of energy and heart I have put into lyme disease education- thirty seven lectures, sixteen radio shows, five national network TV programs, eight front page newspaper features, endless articles, blogs and tweets- all in one year! My life is full and I am healthy. I am proud of “Out of The Woods” and blessed by the amazing connections it has woven in my world.

My mind gravitates to the twenty eight homes in Newtown, Connecticut though. The degree of suffering and loss they are all experiencing must be bottomless. I honestly do not know how some of these individuals are enduring, their tender children and treasured friends ripped away so violently.

I know the USA is in mourning. We all feel a piece of the pain. Putting ourselves in their shoes, we feel the stomach lurching horror and heart-wrenching fear. This grizzly, senseless rampage has wounded a nation. Our hearts all tremble with the families in Newtown. In fact, I realize, when sitting in meditation, that in essence, the whole world resonates with this profound sadness. In a certain way, we have all been thrown “off center”.

As I prepare my thoughts for my annual winter solstice fire and ‘release’, this year I actually write more words about the world than me.

On my paper I write; bloodshed, guns, murders, mass killings, riots, hurricanes, economic collapse, lyme disease, ignorance, heartbreak, spiritual bankruptcy, and prepare to shed all the energy surrounding these conditions. We must release these vibrations, or our health will be adversely affected by carrying the catastrophic force fields within. I visualize joy, compassion, love, and tenderness filling me to the brim. I imagine these rounded, radiant vibrations soothing our citizens, the country, the entire world. We need this salve.

As the world turns in its everlasting patient revolution, I look towards the sunshine and all that it heralds. As we move out of this time of deep darkness, a time of mourning and desolation, we can be reminded that ever faithfully, we will be renewed. Just as we plummeted into tragedy and pitch black, we will expand into glory and light. It all comes around again.

I ask for grace. I ask for peace. I ask for safety, trust and faith. May there be love in our hearts. May we each let go of that which binds or wounds us and turn towards the sun and beckon in all that breathes life and joy into our souls.

Thank you readers, for your time with me here, for our shared communion, for the good you bring into the world. May you cherish the beauty of living, may each day shine with more light.

Respectfully,

Katina

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
