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.
