Lyme and Health Experts

As a regular listener to Lyme Ninja Radio, you will be exposed to many experts in and around the Lyme Community. It’s important to keep tabs on the latest developments in Lyme research and treatment, and it’s also important to cross pollinate these ideas with experts outside of the Lyme community. Many scientific breakthroughs happen unexpectedly. The most famous example is the accidental discovery of penicillin. By including experts from field outside of the Lyme community, I hope to keep our thinking fresh.

Below are the most recent Expert interviews.

I practice acupuncture in Clinton, NY, a small village in the geographical center of the state. Once I became aware of Lyme and other insect carried diseases, I started seeing my chronic patients in an entirely different light. Join me as I speak with the the most fascinating people in the Lyme community. If you know someone I should interview, let me know.
