Pure Encapsulations: The Science Behind the Supplements with Barry W. Ritz, PhD.

When I was completely destroyed by Lyme disease, bedridden for three years and multiple organs, glands and bodily systems damaged, I felt I would be left living life from inside my home and on the sidelines. Many people with chronic diseases need to nourish the depleted bodily systems, as well as repair damages. Nutritional supplements and herbals are absolutely essential tools in this healing path. I am now proud to be 100% recovered from autoimmune syndromes and advanced neurological Lyme disease. One of the KEY COMPONENTS in my recovery was the use of the beautiful products PURE ENCAPSULATIONS make. They helped me reclaim my health and overcome so many symptoms.

I swear their Mitochondria ATP cured the CFS in 2 weeks and without their CoQ10, DHEA, quercitin and more I do not know if I would be as vital as I am now!! Considered the ‘Clinique” of the supplement spectrum, PURE contain no additives, fillers, dyes or fancy branding. They are clean, simple, pure and the highest grade supplements I favor. My office shelves and home cupboard are stocked!! I am a walking example of how these high grade nutritive supplements can change lives.

This week on “Lyme Light Radio”, I welcome Barry Ritz, PhD, of PURE ENCAPSULATIONS.  Dr. Ritz oversees the science and regulatory functions for a large international dietary supplement company.  He will discuss how companies develop and manufacture new products—under strict good manufacturing practices—the regulatory environment for dietary supplements and the importance of clinical studies.

Tune in this Wednesday, April 29 at 4PM ET/1PM PT on WBLQ AM 1270 or at http://www.transformationtalkradio.com for this chance to look under the hood at how nutrition scientists develop the products we all rely on!

Visionary Healer and Founder of Inanna House, Mara Williams returns to Lyme Light Radio


The author of “Nature’s Dirty Needle”, a book for all of us that introduces case histories and the nuances of Lyme disease an co-infections joins me this week on Lyme Light Radio. Also the founder of the first residential tick borne disease treatment center in the making, Inanna House, Mara bears a deep compassion for the decimating damage this illness induces in patient’s lives. Families, careers, psyches and a body can be destroyed when Lyme disease becomes pervasively entrenched within our systems. Akin to the syphillus tragedies of centuries past, Lyme disease is the modern day maiming blood borne infectious illness.

As a seasoned Nurse Practitioner at the USA’s famed Gordon Medical Associates, Mara has extensive knowledge on the assorted modalities necessary to both deal with a new acute infection or the long term chronic types of advanced Lyme disease. Please help me welcome a true healer, a gifted visionary and a passionate Lyme disease advocate to my show this week. Mara’s wisdom is too precious to be missed.

Mara joins Lyme Light Radio this Wednesday, November 19, at 4 PM Eastern Time, 1pm Pacific Time. You can tune in live at http://www.transformationtalkradio.com or on WBLQ AM 1230 in Southern New England.

“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. 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

Renowned Author Connie Strasheim On Detoxifying Our Bodies and Homes

One of the pieces in the puzzle of chronic Lyme disease is environmental. Toxins in our bodies and homes can weaken our immune systems, increasing our chances of becoming ill and making recovery more difficult.

This week, I welcome prolific health and holistic wellness author Connie Strasheim to Lyme Light Radio. Having overcome chronic Lyme disease herself and written several books, Connie brings a wealth of knowledge to Lyme Light Radio. We are eager to hear about detoxifying our bodies, homes, and more!

My interview with Connie airs this Wednesday, July 30, at 4PM ET on http://www.transformationtalkradio.com and WBLQ 1230 in Southern New England. You can listen live on iTunes or at http://thedrpatshow.com/shows/mak-140730-strasheim.mp3.

John Donnally of the TBDA Returns to Lyme Light Radio

Children and teenagers spend more hours outdoors and in the woods, on average, than most adults. All this time spent in nature leaves younger people vulnerable to tick-borne illnesses and Lyme disease, the fastest-growing infectious disease in the United States.

Listeners remember when we followed John Donnally of the TBDA on his 3,000-mile bike trip across America to raise awareness of the Lyme epidemic. This week, John returns to the show to tell us about TBDA’s new Junior program, which will help support young folks struggling with tick-borne illness. John will educate us on how we can help children and teens struggling with these chronic illnesses.

John returns to the show this Wednesday, July 23, at 4PM ET, followed by an encore episode from his bike trip last fall. You can listen on WBLQ in Rhode Island and at http://www.TransformationTalkRadio.com. You can find the interview on iTunes or listen now at http://thedrpatshow.com/shows/mak-140723-donnally.mp3

JohnDonnallyBorn and raised in Madison, N.J., John Donnally attended the Morristown-Beard School from 2004-2008 where he competed in hockey, soccer and lacrosse. John first began suffering from Lyme-related symptoms in the fifth grade but did not gain an official diagnosis until 2003.
Throughout high school John was healthy and only experienced mild lingering symptoms. As captain of his lacrosse team, John was named first team all-conference and first team all-county. He continued his talents at Colgate University, but during this time, he also began to experience new and intensified symptoms, including cascading floaters in vision, neck pain, joint pain and tendonitis. In 2011, John tested positive for Lyme once again and started treatment immediately.
In May 2012, John graduated from Colgate University with a degree in English Literature and began working as a sales consultant in New York City. While working, John felt a strong desire to take action against Lyme and do something that played a lasting role in his life. This desire inspired him to join the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance and launch Bite Back for a Cure, a national grassroots campaign to build support for the fight against the devastating impact of tick-borne diseases. This summer and fall, John is biking across the country to Bite Back against tick-borne diseases and build support in the fight against the devastating illnesses.
