Sometimes it seems like you need Ninja skills to defeat Lyme disease. Join acupuncturist Mackay Rippey and his producer, Aurora, as they bring you interviews with interesting and informative people who are using their unique skills and knowledge to deal with Lyme and other tick born diseases.
My name is Mackay Rippey, I'm an acupuncturist in Clinton, NY (http://www.mackayrippey.com)and the host of Lyme Ninja Radio.
I'll never forget the Sunday morning I dragged my sorry-feeling-self to the bathroom and found a perfectly formed bullseye on my left arm. 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.
Join us as we talk to some of the most interesting people in the Lyme community.

The Relapse-Free Roadmap
Mackay gives the 20,000 foot overview of his roadmap for staying relapse-free, going from "better" to "bulletproof."
We're back...and a bit about where we were.
We're back. This episode is a rambling apology and roadmap for the future of Lyme Ninja Radio. Listen at your own risk. As Dave Asprey like to say, It's "Dangerous."
#276: Mandy Roome, PhD - Ecological Risk Of Tick - Borne Pathogens
Mandy Roome is a Research Scientist at the Bassett Research Institute in Cooperstown, NY. She has performed extensive field and laboratory research on tick-borne diseases in New York state since 2012, and has recently begun expanding her research throughout the Northeast. Her research explores the ecological risk of Lyme and other tick-borne pathogens, risk factors associated with infection, quality of life changes resulting from acute or chronic Lyme infection, and the occupational hazards of tick-borne disease exposure.
So glad Lyme Ninja Radio is back!!
Mackay asks interesting in-depth questions of his brilliant guests. His podcast is my all time favorite (and I have listened to ALOT of Podcasts on Lyme). Mackay’s concern and compassion for people comes through and has been a bright spot in my long and often bleak journey through recovery. So glad you and Aurora are back!!
Lyme Ninja Radio
I have been listening to this podcast since 2015 when I relapsed with my Lyme Disease. Bedridden for nearly six months I discovered Lyme Ninja Radio. It was a lifeline of support for me, someone in the medical field thrust into the middle of the Lyme wars with medical specialists I relied on denying my reality of symptoms. Mackay has guests on every week, some describing their personal Lyme journeys interspersed with a wide array of specialists and providers helping to unlock the mysteries of Lyme disease and other chronic diseases. Always affirming, the podcast helped me understand the complexities of Lyme and navigate my own personal journey. I am grateful that the podcast has returned after a few month hiatus and look forward to its focus on preventing relapse.
Love listening on my way to work and need to catch up on some past interviews. Need more!
