Katina Makris shares her five year healing journey through Lyme Disease.
She describes how some outdated blood tests can’t find Lyme Disease and how crucial it is to have newer testing, as the slow-growing Lyme spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, can spiral its way through and out of the bloodstream, into the spinal cord and up to the brain.
She shares first symptoms and chronic symptoms and explains how many physicians aren’t trained in recognizing the symptoms of Lyme Disease. If left undiagnosed, the illness caused by this bacteria can become chronic and debilitating.
Katina describes how she was able to finally get properly diagnosed and treated to kill the bacteria and regain her health.
She also covers how the physical and emotional trauma of being attacked by this aggressive bacteria left her unable to deal with normal, every day parts of her life.
Katina teaches three cutting edge labs for Lyme Disease Testing and shows us how to find a Practitioner who is knowledgeable and certified for treating Lyme Disease.

“It hit me pretty hard and fast with vertigo and chills and a stiff neck and a clammy feeling and it was rapid onset.”
“I was racked with vicious migraines, three and four days a week, heart palpitations and a stiff neck, palsies and tremors.”
“Seesaw, seesaw and this is what happens with Lyme Disease, its got this cyclical pattern to it, in and out of active and remission.”
“The bacteria moves its way deeper into your system from the bloodstream to the connective tissue and joints and muscles, where it mimics Fibromyalgia.”
“It spirals its way into the nervous system and it gets into the spinal fluid and eventually to the brain.”
“I said, ‘But I’ve been tested three times and all the tests showed I was negative.’”
“The testing we have is outdated, it has a 70% error rate. It’s only good in those early couple of months.”
“This massive destruction to my body and psyche and nervous system was caused by an aggressive bacteria.”
“If you have the bullseye rash and you have flu like symptoms or a swollen knee or headaches, you want to get on antibiotics immediately.”
“It’s a slow replicating bacteria and it takes a full six weeks before you can really get rid of it all.”
“Three very important pieces in order to overcome this illness are:
Step 1 Get the detox pathways in your body working
Step 2 Start on killing the bugs
Step 3 Rebuilding all the depletions and damage.”
“Tending to my body was part of the equation, the other very important part was tending to the emotional and spiritual ravages that I experienced.”
In one word, how can a person heal?
