Out of the Woods
Healing Lyme Disease — Body, Mind & Spirit
Katina I Makris, CCH, CIH
At the peak of her career, Classical Homeopath and health care columnist 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 her illness finally diagnosed as Lyme Disease. But diagnosis was only the beginning of her journey toward healing.
Twenty thousand cases of Lyme Disease are reported annually, tens of thousands more still undiagnosed or mistreated due to faulty testing protocols. This infectious disease can create gaping physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds, leaving many in progressive states of illness, collapse, and financial ruin.
Makris' vivid story offers practical info for diagnosing and treating the bacterial infection, as well as powerful guidance for mending the broken spirit. Part recovery memoir and part resource guide, this book provides vital alternative medical, emotional, and spiritual support. Rooted in Makris' personal experience, deep understanding of alternative medicine, and poetic connection to nature, it transcends the boundaries of any one disease to reaffirm the power of hope for anyone grappling with life-shattering chronic illness.
" ... a book that can shine a light for many others who may be in a similar situation. Lyme Disease is one of the most epidemic diseases of our generation, but until recently it was barely on the radar of public and medical consciousness. Out of the Woods has helped to change this."
— Richard Pitt, Homeopath and Teacher
