Dr. Herman Lerner (Hy), M.D.

After completing a Master’s degree in clinical psychology at Pennsylvania State University,  Dr. Lerner went on to receive his M.D. degree from the Chicago Medical School. Postgraduate work was done at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago followed by a fellowship in epidemiology at the Chicago Board of Health under Dr. Jeremiah Stamler where he assisted in the then – pioneering work in diet/heart studies and risk factors in cardiovascular disease as well as developing protocols for large-scale chronic disease screening programs.

He continued this work as an Associate in Medicine at Harvard Medical School where he participated as a research physician in the National Hypertension Study at the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center.

While practicing medicine in Massachusetts, Hy pursued his strong interest in healthy nutrition beginning with a connection to the macrobiotic community in Boston and culminating in the founding of the Baldwin Hill Bakery; the first whole-grain organic sourdough bread bakery in the country (more details can be found in Chapter 4 of the Laurel’s Kitchen Bread Book). He also pursued studies in Classical Homeopathy for many years with some of the foremost practitioners of the time and completed the two year Homeopathic Clinician Course with Louis Klein, R.S. Hom..

Another major clinical interest has been anti-aging medicine and natural hormone balancing.  Hy has received training over the years from the Broda Barnes Foundation in Connecticut as well as study with Dr. Jonathan Wright through the American Academy of AntiAging Medicine.  He had a private practice in this specialty in Massachusetts prior to his move to Maine.

Other interests and training include Kripalu yoga, Zen meditation and Jin Shin Jiu Tsu, a specialized Japanese healing art.

He is also an avid cyclist and budding choral singer.

Dr. Michael Eng

Michael has been interested in Integrative Medicine since he saw Traditional Chinese medicine while visiting Beijing, China in 1986.  After returning to the United States, he took classes in medicinal and poisonous plants, and ultimately chose to pursue a conventional training in medicine at Duke University School of Medicine.  His experiences in patient care were initially disappointing, and he left medicine to work in Environmental Sciences and to study Toxicology.  When he completed his MD, he moved to New York City for residency  at Beth Israel Medical Center and Mount Sinai Hospital.  He was board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology in 2000.  He has lived in Maine since then.

While working as a Pathologist at Central Maine Medical Center, Rumford and Bridgton Hospitals, Michael further pursued his interests in spiritual health.  He began attending courses at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA and was especially engaged by YogaDance.  He is now a certified YogaDance instructor and led classes in YogaDance at CMMC and Bridgton Hospitals.  Michael became a Hospice volunteer with Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice (AHCH), where he learned a great deal about healing  through love, forgiveness and acceptance.  At AHCH he was first exposed to Reiki, and he was trained as a Level 1 practitioner.  He has just completed a year-long course in Positive Psychology through Kripalu, and he has been using the teachings as part of his practice at Integr8 Health.

He still practices Pathology at CMHC, but he expanded his practice into patient care in 2013.  He has begun training in Osteopathic Manual Manipulation, and he has been astounded to see first-hand the profound healing powers of cannabis.  He is delighted to find that patient care outside the traditional practice of medicine is more intimate, individualized and collaborative than what he experienced decades before.  He hopes that the additional lessons he has learned from marriage, parenting, hiking, kayaking, dance and yoga infuse his practice with wisdom, respect and intuition.

Annette Mueller is a board certified family nurse practitioner and functional medicine practitioner whose practice style emphasizes a holistic approach to chronic disease prevention and management. For her own health, and the health of her patients, she promotes nutrition, exercise and lifestyle modifications as first line approaches to wellness, but will also recommend nutritional supplements and prescription medications when indicated. She is particularly interested in Functional Medicine and is finishing her functional medicine practitioner certification through the Institute for Functional Medicine.

As a coastal Maine native, she earned her BA in psychology and neuroscience from Colby College in Waterville, Maine and completed her family nurse practitioner education at Boston College. Though her practice philosophy has always emphasized wellness through nutrition and lifestyle, her passion for functional and integrative medicine developed while treating autism spectrum disorders, neurodegenerative disorders and other chronic diseases in an integrative health center in Miami, Florida. In 2010, Annette was happy to return to Maine to be closer to her family and pursue her passion for practicing integrative medicine. She resides in Scarborough, Maine where she enjoys running and walking her dog on the beach.

“I believe to facilitate healing, a practitioner must first understand the patient’s present health state, then implement changes that meet the patient’s ultimate wellness goals. It is important for me to hear my patients entire health story, assess their goals and expectations for health, and develop customized treatment strategies that are effective, practical, and can be incorporated into their lives.”

My Journey:

I have known from an early age what my career path would be. After an emergency appendectomy at five years old, I set my sights on becoming a nurse, and never veered from that path. I marveled at the wide range of skills utilized, and the importance of human interaction with not just the patient, but with their entire family and the other medical professionals involved. Growing up in a small town in Maine, the daughter of a minister and a social worker, I was exposed to a wide range of social interactions long before my peers were. I learned the importance of seeing a person as a biological, psychological, social being, which has been impacted upon by a very wide range of entities.

My undergraduate years were spent at the University of New Hampshire, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. I enjoyed many years working as a nurse in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Hawaii, and Maine. Throughout those years, I was always interested in learning different methods of treating patients other than by the traditional Western Medicine techniques. I took courses in Therapeutic Touch and Reiki, Guided Imagery, Biofeedback, and Therapeutic Massage. My work as a musician also brought a different type of healing, especially to those with psychological illnesses.

Much as I enjoyed working as a nurse, I became frustrated with the limitations of my role and decided to pursue further education. I received my Master’s degree and Nurse Practitioner’s certification from Simmons College. Now I was able to do more for my patients with a wide range of medical practices, both traditional and complementary or alternative.

At that time, I also started my own little business, Good Deed Beads. As a creative outlet, I make beaded jewelry which I then sell, and all the proceeds go to a fund which provides free medical care. While undergoing medical treatments myself, I was appalled at how insurance companies dictated a patient’s care, and I saw what happened to those without insurance. Hence, Good Deed Beads was my way of giving back to those in need, with no strings attached.

I have become associated with The Gesundheit Institute in West Virginia with Dr. Patch Adams, and joined his housecalls program. In October of 2009, I spent four weeks at Gesundheit Institute participating in a class on Humanism in Medicine.  This was a life-changing event for me, helping me realize yet again the importance of complementary and alternative medicines, including humor, in health care.

Integrative Medicine is the combination of traditional Western Medicine with Complementary and Alternative Medicines, mostly from Eastern cultures. Through this practice, a person is treated as a bio-psycho-social being. I am delighted to be a part of Integr8 Health, where every patient is seen as a whole entity, and treated with a wide range of modalities designed to promote health to its fullest potential.
