Guest Teachers -Dane Boggs and Dane Johnson, join “Walking the Lyme Road” at Art of Living Retreat Center – bringing Rife technology and nutritional information to recovery

Dr.Jodie Dashore and Katina Makris, are leading a Lyme disease and autoimmune illness healing and educational weekend retreat from May 10-14, 2017, at the Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC.

Aimed to bring much needed information to the Southern states of the USA, where this infectious illness is surging rapidly, with migratory birds dropping Lyme disease infected ticks into the local habitat, many individuals have become infected with the dangerous bacteria borrelia burgdorferi and associated tick borne infections, yet regional doctors are completely unaware and not properly testing or diagnosing.

Thousands of cases, even with the acute onset fever and tell-tale bull’s eye rash, are being brushed off as spider bites, or a suspect virus. Medical and state professionals in regions like Florida, Arkansas, Texas, South Carolina, Mississippi and more, somehow ‘believe’ this rapidly spreading infectious disease does not cross their state border. Though we know nearby Virginia and Maryland are endemically stricken!

When the Lyme disease spirochete bacterium migrates from the blood stream into tissues, joints, glands, organs and even the spinal fluid and to the brain, the infection induces profound symptoms and clinically ‘looks like’ fibromyalgia, RA, CFS, Lupus, MS, parkinson’s, ALS, dementia, ADD/ADHD, bi-polar, autism and assorted neuropathies and heart conditions. Even cases of Interstitial Cystitis, IBS, migraines need to be examined for Lyme disease as a root cause.

Our medical system is using a very faulty, outdated 40 year old ELISA antibody test, and scientific research money has not been granted to unravel the mechanisms of this aggressive bacterial illness, a cousin to syphilis. Thankfully, the pioneering ILADS.org community is educating health care practitioners on what cutting edge lab and tests to use for diagnostics and early acute treatments are successful with 6-12 weeks of rotational antibiotics and anti-parasitic meds.

The GREAT tragedy is when Lyme is ‘missed’ in the early weeks of infection and then -8 months, 3 years, 20 years later we find severely compromised patients with a vast array of symptoms, endless pain, catastrophic fatigue and cognitive and neurological damages.

Dr. Dashore and myself are both survivors of advanced neurological Lyme disease and have thousands of clinician hours between us, using the best of Integrative and Natural Medicine techniques, to help restore the damages the infection induces, as well as dealing with the emotional and spiritual recovery process from this chronic debilitating illness.

We are honored to welcome two VERY talented special guest teachers to “Walking The Lyme Road” weekend. Both of these men, named Dane, have recovered fully as well from advanced Lyme cases, without heavy antibiotic warfare use.

Dane Boggs, will educate us on the forms of frequency and energy healing, in his presentation on Rife technology and reiki. And, Dane Johnson will help us understand the aspects of nutrition and deficiencies we must address for healing.

 

About Dane Boggs:

Dane was born in Charlottesville, Virginia and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah where he graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science Degree. After college he purchased and remodeled homes in Pittsburgh before settling in Jacksonville in 1981. He started Boggs Construction Co. in 1983 where he remodeled and built Custom Homes along the First Coast until 2006.

In 2004 Dane was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. He used oral antibiotics for one year and although he improved, he was still sick. He then used intravenous antibiotics for a second year. They also helped him but not enough to beat the disease. As he says, “A stalemate had been reached between the Lyme and myself”. He knew he had to try something different and he started using an Electrical Frequency Generator -Rife machine. Using certain electrical frequencies for Lyme he became much healthier. He attributes his return to health as a result of Rife technology and Reiki.  Dane became a distributor of the GB4000 Frequency Generator and Mopa in 2008.

In 2009 he co-founded the Northeast Florida Lyme Association – NEFLA with a few friends and Lyme Disease sufferers. In 2014 NEFLA became the FLDA – Florida Lyme Disease Association. At that time Dane resigned from the FLDA to pursue his passions, Rife and Reiki.

As Dane regained his health in 2008 he also finished his 200 hour yoga training certification. He received his Qi Gong training and certification from Pragata and Master Hong Liu of China. But he feels the introduction to Reiki helped him the most. It boosted his immune system and helped him beat Lyme Disease. “I am so fortunate and grateful to be well again, Reiki was an integral part of my recovery.” He feels we do not need to suffer as we do, Rife and Reiki can bring us greater harmony, health and happiness. Amazing things can happen when you tap into the healing energy of the universe.” Dane recently completed his book, “REIKI AWAKENING, A Spiritual Journey” in 2012. Revisions were made in 2014.

Carolina On My Mind

Four whirlwind days in one of my favorite states- North Carolina! I’m partial to this land of windswept beaches, blue tinged mountains, and stretching midlands. Most likely this ties in to my years living here, while at Duke University. But, the soft springtime air and gracious hospitality of North Carolineans cannot be dismissed. There is an easy comfort to this pretty region, and some mighty fine food to be savored!

Durham has blossomed. From the old smoky tobacco town I knew in the 1970’s, with its narrow downtown streets scented by a sweet aroma in the gentle mornings, the former, decaying infrastructure has been revamped to a vital commercial district. The college students must love it- great restaurants and clubs, darling shops and tree-lined, freshened streets everywhere.

The relic wooden slat Durham Bulls AA baseball stadium I used to watch minor league games at with my college boyfriend was funky; squeaking bench seats and old-timers spitting chew liberally. It was a colorful slice of small town pro-ball. We liked it. Now, Durham Bulls boast a gleaming, snazzy stadium, rivaling a major-league park in its glamour and comfort. What a skyward leap!

Duke, as you can imagine, has grown astronomically. Tons of new science buildings, hospital expansion, air-conditioned dormitories sprouted amid the old woodlands. I understand the need for progress as a cutting-edge campus and my heart shrank a tad, wistful for the former tie-dyed, frisbee days on the quad. The iPod force of sleek students trailing to classes is less congenial. My alma mater, however, still glowed benevolently in the fine Carolina springtime. Cherry blooms and daffodils dancing were bits of color to my New Englander’s snow-trained eye. What a delicious taste of beauty!

Though treasuring some reunion time with old friends, I came to North Carolina to work, and what long hours I expended! This state is severely infested with ticks, the primary Lyme disease carrier. Over a dozen people told me they pull at least 20 ticks off their bodies each summer, and a dozen a day from pets! Mild winters, lots of low-growing vegetation, and being in an obvious migratory bird fly-way brews a prime Lyme disease habitat. The very sorry situation is the North Carolina doctors and residents are extremely uneducated about this surging epidemic illness.

The North Carolina Lyme Disease Foundation brought me in to help amend the denial, offer solace to the stricken and promote Lyme dialogue. Special thanks go to John Dorney, President, Jan House, Treasurer, and the busy efforts of Frances Kuhlbars and Emily Amber for your excellent support and PR assistance. Dr. Jason Chow of Chapel Hill, and Mary Marchbanks at Carolina Hyperbarics, your generous alliance made dual locations possible for my venues.

As I am all too familiar with, now 40 “Lyme Talks” later, the stricken and caregivers limped in. The weakness, palsies, ashen color are palpable touchstones to my former Lyme-addled life, too. Yet, I gave two inspired, informative presentations, one in Raleigh, the other in Chapel Hill, while fielding massive Q&A’s. So much help is needed, with less than a handful of Lyme-literate doctors in the state. But the work has begun! As the first person to come in from out-of-state to offer support, I am honored to be a lamplight of hope and urge you on to keep Lyme disease awareness work in motion. Inroads can be made.

Dr. Jason Chow is asking all NC residents with Lyme disease to write up a clear, one page story of their Lyme illness and email it to lymeletters@ gmail. com, by April 15th. He aims to present 1,000 Lyme cases to the state Health Department, establishing that Lyme disease does exist throughout North Carolina and it needs recognition! Please participate if you are a resident. This very same measure needs to be modeled in all US states, helping us define the epidemic.

My speaking engagements were long and rather energetically demanding on me, but very worth it, as I know how crucial hope and resource is for those struggling. Having walked the “Lyme Road” for ten arduous years, I intimately fathom the importance a hand-hold of comfort provides.

Thank you one and all for coming out to meet me. I hope “Out of the Woods” finds a special place in your heart. And, lovely North Carolina, you still charm a Yankee girl like me with your blissful springtime grace!

Carolina Here I Come! Lyme Disease Author Brings Hope and Help

The North Carolina Lyme Disease Foundation has invited me to come to their Lyme-ravaged state, bringing pertinent guidance on this swiftly spreading infectious illness epidemic. This is a very exciting opportunity for all!

Unfortunately Lyme and its co-infections have slipped under the radar in all of the South. Most doctors are completely unaware that Lyme is active and spreading, misdiagnosing thousands of cases as the flu, lupus, MS, CFS, ALS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, peri-menopause, depression, anxiety, food allergies, and more. They are following outdated CDC and Infectious Disease Society information from the 1980s that labels Lyme Disease as a mere short-term, two week condition.

Clinical evidence has established that this corkscrew bacteria migrates from the bloodstream, to joints and soft tissue, and eventually to the brain and nervous system, creating assorted chronic symptoms and triggering auto-immune style illnesses.

Currently, there are a mere handful of healthcare practitioners recognizing and treating chronic Lyme in North Carolina. Much education needs to be done.

My two talks, in Raleigh and Chapel Hill in April, are open to the public and sponsored by the North Carolina Lyme Foundation. I will present critical information and guidance on signs and symptoms, diagnostic labs, prevention, and treatment. April 7 in Raleigh, April 8 in Chapel Hill. See details below.

Please tell all of your contacts and friends to come and spread the word! This is the first time anyone has come to North Carolina bringing any sort of help or hope. I am honored to be the first “missionary” in, and of course aim to shift the tides of misunderstanding and Lyme denial in the South. Let us envision this trip as the tipping point!
