Book Review: Out of the Woods by Katina Makris
Out of the Woods: Healing from Lyme Disease and Other Serious Illnesses, Body, Mind
By: Katina Makris
DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE LYME DISEASE BUT DO NOT SHOW A POSITIVE TEST RESULT? COULD YOUR FIBROMYALGIA, CHRONIC FATIGUE OR LUPUS REALLY BE LYME?
“Out of The Woods” provides answers to these questions and more. With tens of thousands of cases of Lyme contracted annually and thousands more undiagnosed or mistreated, Lyme disease is leaving masses of people in progressive states of illness, collapse and financial ruin. This is a treacherous insect borne illness with ugly repercussions. Assorted conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, Fibromyalgia, even Parkinson’s could be misdiagnosed Lyme. If you are a loved one have experienced these travesties, “Out of The Woods” will speak to you.
This was a very personal story to me because I have a very good friend that was eventually diagnosed with Lyme disease – but not until after several years of sickness that no one seemed able to explain. The author, Katina Makris, shares her own personal story of her fight with Lyme disease in her book “Out of the Woods“.
When my friend was going through her illness, well before she was ever diagnosed, it was hard to imagine that she could have so many things wrong with her at one time. Doctors told her that every thing was in her head, take this pill, take that pill, she got called a hypochondriac, and the list just goes on.
In Out of the Woods, Katina explains how one day her life was busy and fulfilling as a successful Homeopathic Healer. Most people would assume that as a healer, if something started to go wrong in her body that she would be able to fix it. But her quality of life started to dwindle little by little, year by year, until she was struggling to keep her marriage and career – while trying to find out what seemed to be destroying her body from the inside out.
When she finally finds a doctor that recognizes that what she has is Lyme Disease, she is able to start turning around her health, body, mind and life and restore the health that she felt before.
In this book, she chronicles her very tough and moving story from its start until she has completely restored her health. Through her words you “hear” the pain and defeat that this disease had on her, but you also “hear” the elation that follows once she has healed herself!
I highly recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with disease, especially one that no one seems to be able to fully diagnose. By holding true to what the author knew was going on in her body, she was able to finally get that diagnosis and heal her body and life. Very heartwarming story!
