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!

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

THIS GIRL IS ON FIRE

A friend at the pool today said to me “Katina, I love being near you, your positive energy is so infectious. You just light me up!

I smiled and thanked her, “I’m an upbeat person by nature, but lately I’m on fire!” came my reply. “Lecturing nationally on behalf of Lyme Disease awareness and offering my message of inspiration gives me a huge rush. To have overcome the complete adversity I faced; bedridden, broke, a divorce, a lost career, deeply depressed and to now have healed in so many ways- well, I just have to tell the world!”.

Amy smiled and remarked “Your story is so inspirational, but your very being just radiates so much life and joy. You are a vivid example of what living from your passion and potential is all about, Katina. I’m hoping you rub off on me now and all those people who meet you”.

“I vowed to myself on my sickbed that when I recovered I would do what I felt moved me and hold nothing back. A channel opened in me, I felt it one day when in deep meditation. Energy flooded in my crown chakra. I knew then that I was meant to move forward and live on purpose, not by accident or by default, but with clear intention and with heart”. “Some days I feel lit from within. I can’t hold my energy back. I let it flow- writing, counselling, you name it- I’m in the flow and I won’t suppress it”.

“Yea”, Amy says. “I’m an athlete of 40 years. We athletes know that feeling- it is awesome. Power, drive, joy intersect and it is awesome.”

“I feel graced by this life and my path. I take nothing for granted and walk it with profound thanks and in pride”.

“Keep going Katina. You make me feel happy”.

It felt great to be acknowledged by Amy! This interchange was a confirmation for me, that it is no accident I got so devastatingly ill and lost everything I loved. In turn I was forced to examine myself, my life choices, and ways of being in order to heal. The Lyme Disease ordeal was horrific, but ultimately a journey of personal transformation. Out the other side now, ignited within by my intention to help others find ways to transform their own suffering into rebirth, I know there is no possible way to go back to the old me, the conditioned one, the less conscious one, the over-tasking one. Fueled by spirit, ignited by love, moved by the powers of transformation, I want to encourage those of you struggling with Lyme Disease or any other chronic illness to find resources in your life; people or places, to help you turn within to your own deep heart. Your heart is wise and knowing. It bears much love, even for our wounded self, and it holds faithful energy, always beating for you, sustaining your lifeblood.

Take a moment to close your eyes, take some long deep breaths, put your hand over your heart and feel its steady presence. Thank this beautiful heart of yours for its power and patience, and in this moment say to your own self- “I love you”, and really mean it.

We need to love ourselves in these time of distress. It is from the inside that we heal. Medicines, doctors, foods, others may minister to us from the outside, but we too must minister to our own selves on the inside. Healing takes time, it asks for restoration. The trauma of chronic Lyme Disease wounds the heart and the spirit. Not everyone knows how to mend a broken spirit.

In the meantime, tending to your own precious heart energy and special self is an invaluable step in helping align your inner healing resources. I practiced this simple self-love for years and it has helped me recover from advanced Lyme Disease. It is worth trying and sticking with. I continue this practice still.

I look forward to you too one day hearing words similar to Amy’s “your being radiates so much life and joy”.

With blessings,

Katina I. Makris, CCH, CIH

The Massachusetts Lyme Disease Commission report has been delayed due to technical issues. Katina Makris, CCH, CIH, author of “Out Of The Woods; Healing Lyme Disease, Body Mind & Spirit”, is urging release of the report in the hopes it will provide urgently needed information for victims of Lyme Disease and those who are at risk

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Author Katina Makris Encourages Release Of Delayed Massachusetts Lyme Disease Commission Report

The release of the report, originally scheduled for release in October, 2012, has stalled. Katina Makris, CCH, CIH is a Lyme survivor, a classical Homeopath and is the author of “Out Of The Woods, Healing Lyme Disease, Body Mind & Spirit”[ Manchester, NH January 8, 2013 ] The Massachusetts Lyme Disease Commission was created by the Massachusetts State Legislature in April of 2011. The Lyme Disease Commission’s charge was to develop a report to help combat Lyme Disease, including options in regards to screening programs, the improvement of preventative measures and to explore the value of public health screening measures. The release of the report has been delayed as the result of numerous technical issues. Makris believes it is imperative that Massachusetts and other affected states take action as soon as possible.“The Lyme disease situation in Massachusetts is yet another red ‘dashboard’ light screaming for action alert regarding this exploding infectious illness. Many medical authorities consider Lyme disease to be the polio of the twenty first century, as it has now surpassed HIV in how quickly it is spreading” says Katina Makris, Lyme survivor and author of “Out of The Woods; Healing Lyme Disease, Body, Mind & Spirit”.

Massachusetts  is a severely affected state, but so are over a couple dozen more. Lyme disease is showing up all over the US actually, with migratory birds transporting Lyme infected ticks everywhere; Florida, Louisiana, Texas and Montana included.

“Massachusetts advocates are urging for the correct measures, which all states should adopt – school prevention steps, doctor diagnostic training and funds for Lyme Disease treatment research,” Makris agrees.

The lyme causing spirochete bacteria, borrelia burgdorferi is a cousin to syphilis, burrowing from bloodstream, to tissues and joints, to spinal fluid and the brain. “We know the ugly affects of advanced syphilis. Lyme is very similar.”

As Dr. Leo Shea III, International Lyme and Infectious Disease Society president states, “we watched too many thousands die when the medical community did not take HIV seriously. We cannot afford to lose another generation to Lyme disease.”

“The sooner Massachusetts and other states adopt Lyme disease awareness, prevention, diagnostic and adequate early treatment protocols, the better chance we have to arrest the epidemic.”

With tens of thousands of cases of Lyme contracted annually and thousands more undiagnosed or mistreated, Lyme disease is leaving masses of people in progressive states of illness, collapse and financial ruin.  Assorted conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, Fibromyalgia, even Parkinson’s could be misdiagnosed Lyme.

Makris is no stranger to Lyme, being a survivor of the disease. Her book, “Out Of The Woods”, is the captivating story of her carefully cultivated life unraveling from an misdiagnosed case of Lyme disease. At the peak of her career, with a young family happily ensconced in rural New England, a mysterious ‘flu’ ransacked Katina’s life and future with unsuspecting consequences. Her ten-year journey, two completely bedridden, out of darkness into the light of living is one of profound lessons and unexpected discoveries.

A healing passage of transformative personal change and ultimately one of unheralded spiritual awakening, “Out of The Woods” stretches across the borders of any one illness to all whom are grappling with the uncertainties and seismic quakes of chronic illness. Tending to the emotional and spiritual wounds of Lyme disease is just as critical as killing the bacterial invasion. “Out of The Woods” offers guidance and suggestions of how to heal at these levels, as not everyone knows how to mend a broken spirit. It is an inspirational healing story of rebirth and the power of hope.
