Katina Makris

Katina Makris has worked in natural health care for 28 years, as a Classical Homeopath and Certified Medical Intuitive Healer. For 10 years, she was a popular newspaper health columnist and a board member of The Council for Homeopathic Certification. She is currently a board member of Be Tick Ready, a Lyme education group. Katina is a graduate of Duke University and The Stillpoint School of Integrative Life Healing.

After 5 years of misdiagnosis and 5 more years of treatments, Katina has triumphantly overcome advanced chronic Lyme disease. She is on a nationwide Lyme awareness campaign with her recovery memoir and guide, "Out of the Woods; Healing Lyme Disease Body, Mind and Spirit," an award finalist for 2011 Best Book in Health with USA Book News and winner of "50 Authors You Should be Reading" by the Authors Show. She currently is at work on two new manuscripts, one of spiritual reflections and meditations, the other a companion workbook on Lyme disease recovery.

Katina is a dynamic, well loved educator and engaging Lyme disease motivational speaker, sought after for her depth of chronic illness understanding and mind-body-spirit healing work. She lends professional and personal experience on mending from the ravages of chronic Lyme disease. With pragmatism and compassion, this dynamic healer and chronic Lyme survivor shares insights into the Lyme paradox and other illnesses, offering tools for prevention, diagnostics and treatments for regaining one's health. Unfortunately, all of us; home gardeners, landscapers, beach goers, outdoor lovers, and children, must be alert to ticks and Lyme disease.

She is excited to announce she is hosting a live weekly radio show, within a 300 station worldwide syndicate, "Lyme Light Radio with Katina Makris." This is a very promising step forward for Lyme disease.

"As a chronic Lyme disease recoveree and advocate I wish to offer hope to those caught in the rip-chord of suffering and confusion regarding tick-borne diseases. Though finding a Lyme savvy practitioner and your devotion to treatments may feel daunting, the human being is amazingly resilient. The power of our spirit and inner will must not be dismissed. Healing happens on the inside. You too can thrive" ....Katina
