On 12th September, LDUK organised an informal meeting in London with Katina Makris and a group of our members. Katina is a Natural Health Practitioner and Educator. Her calling is to promote Lyme disease and chronic disease awareness, and her passion is to ignite the mind-body-spirit healing pathway, available in all of us.
Katina shared her own health challenges and recovery, healing tips and strategies with the group. The session also included healing visualisation exercises, delicious gluten-free and paleo snacks and plenty of time for members to share their own experiences of living with Lyme disease and co-infections.
Thank you for sharing your experiences and expertise with us, Katina!
‘More than 300,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with Lyme disease every year, and many, many more are suffering from Lyme without knowing it. Katina Makris was one of those undiagnosed individuals who nearly died from the disease. At the peak of her career, classical homeopath and health-care columnist Katina Makris was stricken with a mysterious “flu.” Only after five years of torment—two completely bedridden—and devastating blows to her professional and family life was Katina’s illness finally diagnosed as Lyme disease. Out of the Woods not only shares the brutality of Lyme disease through the telling of Katina’s story, but it also describes her incredible journey back to full recovery, giving thousands of Lyme sufferers hope for their uncertain and frightening futures.’
Katina I. Makris, veteran natural health-care practitioner and former sufferer of CFS, fibromyalgia, and Lyme, carefully explains the mechanisms at play with autoimmune illness. “The body is not compartmentalized into illness symptomology, but is integrated and whole; the mind-body-spirit are entwined as one, searching for balance or homeostasis,” she writes. With clear insight into our seven energy chakra centers and the correlation to our bodily systems and specific emotional interplay, Autoimmune Illness and Lyme Disease Recovery Guide is a manual and workbook, educating readers on the role of Integrative Medicine and dietary and lifestyle management for optimizing recovery potentials, as well as how to ignite the mind-body healing pathway.
