Katina Makris.Com Hacked: How to Still Contact Katina

Those of you who follow my work know I am a ‘do – gooder’ The brave, solitary bearer of light in the very trying times of a rampart lyme disease epidemic and it’s cross – over elements to over 250 million people affected world-wide with autoimmune illness

My message has been to use my own ten year recovery story and decades of natural medicine restoration knowledge to enlighten, inspire and bring education to so many weary and suffering souls in need of direction and living proof that healing and full vibrant life restoration is possible.

Having looked death straight in the eye and brazenly said “NO” – ” I am going to live”, I have been given a second chance at life and I walk it with honor and dignity.  My grassroots campagne, united with lyme disease  support groups world – wide, my two books, my creative brain child – ‘ Lyme Light Radio’ and deeply held passion to bring spiritual and emotional healing with my energetic mind-body healing skills comes purely from a higher calling within  me.

I am a humanitarian.  This path I walk is more about you and the masses I wish to ‘touch’ than about me.  Ego dissolves when you defy death and come back to life with a mission.

Sadly, my beautiful and informative website http://www.katinamakris.com was hacked and was disabled last week.  My Linked In account was also tampered with too.  Many of you have been trying to reach me through my website email without success.  I apologize.

We are in the mists of trouble-shooting and likely needing to re-build a new website  If you need to reach my office to schedule a consultation or find more on my teachings and workshops events please use this email: katinamakris32@gmail.com

All my 100 Lyme Light Radio show podcasts are still archived at my former network.  Google http://www.TransformationTalkRadio.com  and put my name or Lyme Light Radio in the search window.

I feel saddened that ‘Someone’ has taken action to try to disable my heartfelt mission of healing, but trust that like a phoenix, I will rise stronger than ever!

With blessings for all of us at Katina Makris, CCH, ALT

“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!!

Follow us on Twitter @LymeLightRadio and @KatinaMakris and on Facebook /katina.makris.9 /OutOfTheWoodsBook and /LymeLightRadio. And on LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/Katina/Makris.

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

Why I Work So Hard For Lyme Disease

I reflect in these misty mornings of Autumn’s rapid descent on how magical this season of change is.  The colors, the tonal quality of the bird songs, and the romantic skies of gathering clouds, sweep into Northern New England with such a force.  This year, with heavy rains, it all came upon us so quickly- chilly mornings and geese honking in flight while my zinnias lost their summer vibrance seemingly overnight! Image

But, then again I’ve been out working, lecturing in a whirlwind of passion, in these shimmering weeks of nature’s transition.  I’ve been actually on the road, every single week since mid-March, sharing my recovery memoir and treatment guide, “Out of the Woods; Healing Lyme Disease, Body, Mind and Spirit.”  Though I’ve lapped up every single place I’ve visited, like a sponge, soaking in the ambiance, the stories, the status of the Lyme epidemic, I’ve also skimmed through the seasons, in a way.

A nature spirit at heart, I treasure my garden, walks in the scented forests and swimming faithfully in our local pond.  As a landscape painter, I spend days on end soaking in a locale, as I move its emotional fabric and composition to canvas.  It feeds my spirit to be steeped in nature’s comfort and beauty.

I realize now, in a rare day of repose, that I’m a bit below my sensory quotient of absorption this year.  My work as an author, speaker and Lyme disease advocate has taken me far and wide.  How stunning this journey has been!

I have treasured the places and the amazing people I have visited.  You are beautiful souls, often wounded by Lyme, mismanaged by the health care systems ignorance and yet rich in depth and sensitivity.  It has been a tremendous honor to share my time with you.

For those of you whom have met me in person, you know I am passionate about helping others recover from Lyme disease.  I was wretchedly ill, bedridden, broke and bereft myself six years ago.  I’ve come so far, healed on so many levels and expanded in ways I could never have fathomed, formerly too ill to even feed myself.

I am appalled at how vast the Lyme epidemic is.  From coast to coast, North and South, Lyme has crept into our lives, affecting multiple generations, many lives lost. It is impossible for me to ignore all of you who have been afflicted.

After losing everything I worked so carefully to create in my life- home and marriage, career and income, health and well-being, to Lyme, I know how devastating the ravages of this bacteria can be.  I have walked the very same path as you.

I lecture and work so hard with my writing in behalf of Lyme disease awareness and healing because I want to affect a change for a better future.  I want better diagnostics, an Integrative Health Care system, a Lyme vaccine and annual screenings for us all.  I want our children to play freely outdoors, climb trees and build fairy houses, like I did when I was young, and not get Lyme disease.

If I keep speaking and teaching, sharing and writing, I believe each droplet of goodwill and effort I lend will affect the winds of change.  A momentum will build as we coalesce.  Group synergy can build a web of community and compassion.  My intention to ignite the spiritual dimension of healing in each individual, can in turn stir great healing energy within and without.  Over time and in process, the tides will shift!

I pray that in my lifetime I will witness an end to the Lyme disease epidemic.  The abysmal weakness, the pains, the isolation, the confusion, the losses will be replaced with buoyant joy, vibrant energy, abundant creativity, a caring stewardship of Earth and a return to play and freedom amongst nature- my temple of solace.

As evening settles in, I light the candles, I sit still, listening to the winter winds whisking in on a distant tremolo.  Soon the snows will arrive, blanketing us in whiteness and I will turn within; a time of meditations, writings and contemplation for me.

At this threshold of transition, I bow to each of the four directions.  To the East, I offer my thanks for the vibrant, fresh energy that propelled me far and wide this year.  To the South, I offer gratitude for feeding me so fully with love and acceptance, joy and sharing on each of my ventures.  To the West, I acknowledge your mighty energy of fortitude and endurance to hold me, as I pushed myself physically like I was a youngster.  To the North, I offer my pure respect for your guidance and perfect patience, bringing me home safely each trip and always gracing me with wisdom.

I have been moved deeply by all that I’ve experienced in this magical year.  May my work and efforts bring the ministering of hope and inspiration I aimed for.

God Bless,

Katina
