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.

The Lyme Disease Story and a Message of Hope from Canada with Jeanne Pacey

On a spectacular summer solstice weekend in Rhinebeck, NY I had the great good fortune of meeting 5 wonderful health care practitioners from just outside of Toronto, Canada. These curious minded, passionate people travelled to come learn how to treat the treacherous infectious illness Lyme disease, from myself, Dr Richard Horowitz and Dr Tom Francescott, at the “Living Well With Lyme Disease” healing workshop we were leading at the famed Omega Institute.

How brave and brilliant and committed this Toronto team is to create a recovery program for the all too many Lyme stricken individuals struggling in Canada! The epidemic surges in this land of wending rivers, stretching waterways and deep forests.

I am so pleased to welcome a special guest to Lyme Light Radio this Wednesday November 12, 2015 at 1pm pt/ 4pm et. One of the lovely women whom I met at Omega joins me from Canada- bringing both her tragic, yet inspiring story to our listeners and news of Lyme disease in the great “North Woods”!

Jeanne Pacey is a health and wellness coach and Lyme disease activist. She was infected with Lyme disease in 1977, and went undiagnosed for many years. She was bedridden from 2006 to 2012, when she was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease. She has completed two years of herbal and antibiotic treatment, and she now leads a normal life with healthy diet, healthy environment to work and live in , exercise, and regular saunas.

“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!!

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

Logan McCulloch’s Journey on the Appalachian Trail for Lyme Disease

Many of us are outdoor enthusiasts, campers, hikers, and spiritually connected to nature. The beauty, power and joy of living close to the wilderness lifts and inspires us.

I am a landscape painter. The magic of nature moves me deeply. My memoir “Out of the Woods” depicts my close kinship and energetic support from the snowy winter cathedrals and the alpine vistas. I became horrifically ill with advanced misdiagnosed Lyme disease after 42 years of living with sheer trust and abandonment amid forests and babbling streams. Many of us became infected with Lyme during our time outdoors.

Awareness, prevention, early diagnostics are key issues all of us need to be alert to in today’s Lyme disease epidemic explosion, as ticks are multiplying at rates beyond historically normal (and living in habitats formerly devoid). Lyme disease is not regional , but all throughout North America and the globe.

A very brave, spirited man named Logan McCulloch has done something remarkable. After suffering with a dire case of chronic Lyme disease himself, he has resisted the fear so many feel and has been hiking the entire length of the East Coast on the Appalachian Trail on a mission to educate about Lyme disease!

Hiking the miles of the AT is a feat in itself, and Logan has been working en route. Please join us on Lyme Light Radio, Wednesday February 26, 1pm PT/4pm ET as Logan McCulloch brings us his story, his journey, his discoveries and commitment to the Lyme disease equation.

This should be a very interesting interview, as we get a ground level view of just what the Lyme and tick situation is deep in the forests of the East Coast.

ImageIn many ways Logan McCulloch feels as if he’s prepared for this project for most of his adult life. He is 52 years old and a native of Louisville, Kentucky. For the past 20+ years he has been a non-profit executive with expertise in fundraising, marketing, public relations and public speaking. His current position is Chief Development Officer for the Kentuckian Region of the American Red Cross. In 2003 he hiked 215 miles of The AT and The Long Trail in Vermont over a two week period. During that trek he adopted the trail name (pseudonyms are common among long distance hikers) “Unitic” which now seems somewhat prophetic given the nature and goals of this adventure.

Being an experienced backpacker he thought he was well informed about the facts of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. He was wrong. As he began to personally experience the frustration and suffering caused by the misinformation and ignorance surrounding Lyme disease within his region and across the country, he chose to become active in the public awareness and advocacy efforts of the Kentuckian Lyme Disease Support Group. Since the spring of 2012 he has utilized the skills and relationships developed over his professional career and worked with a core group of veteran “Lyme Warriors” to succeed in:

•Conversing and sharing information with the leading tick entomologist at the University of Kentucky, and the state veterinarian and Assistant Director of the Kentucky Division of Epidemiology (February).

•Having an article published describing my story in the Louisville Courier-Journal (April).

•Hosting a free community screening of the documentary Under Our Skin (May).

•Conducting personal meetings with the Executive Director of the Greater Louisville Medical Society (GLMS), as well as the Director and staff of the Kentucky Division of Epidemiology (June).

•Getting a front-page above the fold article published entitled “Lyme Disease is Under Reported in Kentucky,” that profiled one of the members of our group and included supportive quotes from key staff at the Kentucky Division of Epidemiology, the University of Kentucky Department of Entomology and the GLMS.

This is a book give away show, too! The first 5 callers to WBLQ at 800-930-2819 will receive autographed copies of my award winning book “Out of the Woods”

Logan and I share a deep love of nature. With his journey into the woods I feel it is fitting I share “Out of the Woods” with our audience, for this is a book or true inspiration and recovery tools.

Thank you Logan and to my team at Transformation Talk Radio, the Dr. Pat Show and WBLQ 1230 AM. Plus my trusty assistants Charlotte Ruth, Jake Carr, Luba Williams (FB posters) and Chloe Rapp – you all help make Lyme Light Radio the hit show we hoped it would be! This is a very rewarding and enriching experience.

Tune in!

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.
