Support Group Meeting Monday September 16th Featuring Guest Speaker Debbie Pico


Debbie Specializes in Integrated Health Therapy. The genesis of what she does is a wide expansion of medicinal spa treatment, holistic education and research into the curative effectiveness of herbals, adaptogens and botanicals all for the purpose of wellness restoration.

Her background includes training & education in Balneotherapy, (which is an ancient practice of therapeutic bathing rituals used prominently for chronic disease in Europe, Israel & Asia and is still part of their medical system) Nutritional Protocols, Massage, Aroma Therapy, Reflex Therapy, VibroAcoustic Sound Applications, Herbal Traditions, Tonic Medicine and an array of energy modalities and mediation. She uses this format for the purpose of prophylactic, rehabilitative and curative effects. “Im here to help people move through necessary blockages and relying more on their own innate biology.”

She has now expanded into her own health practice. “Not long ago my health challenges seemed insurmountable with Fibromyalgia pain, heart issues, extra pounds, and emotional depression. Detoxing the cellular landscape and rebuilding the immune system was key as I began to feel good again. I now continue my lifelong quest to bring health and education to those lost in a world surrounded by chemical pharmaceuticals!”

The Lyme Center’s 2nd Annual LYME

Disease Educational Seminar


A testament to the growing number of people affected by Lyme Disease in Butte County, our annual educational seminar held at Enloe Conference Center in October 2018 was attended by 120 people suffering from or affected by Lyme disease. Sunjya Schweig MD, a well known Lyme literate physician from The “California Center for Functional Medicine” in Berkeley, CA was the keynote speaker. Danielle Cook, a health coach from CCFMed also spoke. Their presentation was followed by 30 minutes of Q & A. Chico Lyme patients are so ardent for information that they lined up for over an hour after the presentation to speak with Dr. Schweig and Danielle who stayed until every question was answered. A big thank you to them both for coming to Chico to inform and educate us. Also thanks to Enloe for the excellent venue.
