Episode 151: Raising Quail to Fight Lyme Disease

In this episode you will learn:

  • What inspired the “Quail Scouts”
  • How communities are rallying around Lyme disease awareness
  • Why quail are a great solution to combat tick population

Meet This Week’s Guests, The Quail Scouts:

Violet, Piper, Jennifer and Claire are all in 7th grade, and are girl scout cadets on Long Island. They noticed the large amount of Lyme Disease cases in their community, among adults, relatives, and school aged kids, and decided as part of their Cadet Silver Star Project to raise Quail chicks to release in their area to combat the tick population in their area. They are set to release the Quails at the end of September.

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.
