My name is Mackay Rippey, I'm an acupuncturist in Clinton, NY (http://www.mackayrippey.com)and the host of Lyme Ninja Radio.

I was lucky, able to return to my acupuncture practice after only few days. It's possible to beat the bacteria that are making you sick. I have and so have many others, but you have to be smarter than Lyme. That's why I created Lyme Ninja Radio.

Super informative

I recently stumbled across this podcast while looking for information on Lyme disease. After listening to two of the episodes I am now hooked. As a functional medicine practitioner I have both a professional and personal fascination with Lyme. For this reason the Lyme ninja podcast is essential listening.
