From Chronic Illness to Radiant Health and Wellness

On Tuesday, February 24th,   Julie Meyer, LAc, will be speaking at the Midcoast Lyme Disease Support & Education group at the Wicasset Community Center from 6-8pm. She will be sharing her firsthand knowledge and specialized healing technique as it applies to those with chronic illness.

Her career in the 80s and early 90s was advocacy. She was a legal advocate for low income clients who had been denied Social Security Disability benefits. They were all experiencing a combination of chronic problems, and none of them were being healed by the long list of pharmaceuticals that each one had been prescribed. She loved working with people to understand their conditions so that she could advocate for them before Administrative Law Judges. But then it occurred to her, wouldn't it be great if people actually got better? Julie went on to study traditional Chinese Medicine and traditional Japenese meridian-style treatment at the New England School of Acupunture. Early in her career, she worked in a hospital-based clinic and was the 1998 Tsay Fellowship for post-graduate research. She is board certified by the NCCAOM and by the State of Maine. She has been in private practice since 1998.

Julie is part of a collective group of individual practitioners who have formed the Heart of Bath Heath Center in Bath, Maine, each bringing their unique sense of healing beliefs and practices together for the betterment of the Midcoast community.

The Midcoast Lyme Disease Support & Education group was created and exists to raise awareness, foster education, advocate for change and provide support for those affected by Lyme Disease and other tick-borne associated diseases. We foster EDUCATION by continually networking with Lyme Literate providers and staying on the cutting edge of available resources and sharing what we learn with the wellness and medical providers and the local community at-large.
