The Healers Café

Hi, it's Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) and I want to welcome you to the Healers Cafe. I am so excited to be doing this series of interviews and what I'll be doing is, is asking all kinds of healthcare practitioners, doctors, healers of all types, to really share with all of you their experience, why they became healers, what called them what they think about this being a healer thing. Is it, a thing? Who's really healing in this, what they've experienced from their their interaction with clients and patients and what the takeaways and understanding of what the process of healing is all about and the process of life. So that's the essence of what I'm doing. I'm hoping that this will serve also for patients that have issues and are looking for different ways of approaching it. * De-Registered, revoked & retired after 30+ years of practice.

Dr Marcus Coplin, ND

while I was in school, I learned that the tradition of naturopathy really comes from the German water cure system, and that there were these health resorts. I mean, there, they were called sanitariums. They were called nature care centers. But they were these places where people would go and spend a period of time, like a health vacation in which they would undergo a series of treatments.

Dr Marcus Coplin, ND

helping this body better regulate itself, you can help the body better kind of scan and attenuate to whatever conditions are present

Dr Marcus Coplin, ND

the emergence of spaces like hot spring resorts, urban bath houses, health retreats, health resorts, these are places where people are going to be actively able to go and spend a focused amount of time to go through a process of healing, under properly trained guidance.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Amy Bondar 

I think the main obstacle that people have is that for so many years, we've approached nutrition for weight loss. And we really just thought about using food as a way to use lose weight. And I believe that food is so much more than that, right?

 

Amy Bondar

what we're missing is that exploration, we go into shaming, guilt about eating it, and veering off our nutritional path, but we're not doing the work. We're not doing the work to resolve the stresses and conflicts so that we're not constantly repeating that pattern of going back to food.

 

Amy Bondar 29:43

I just think food is meant to be enjoyed. And it's really here to give us the energy and vitality to do what we love every single day of our lives. And when we can get to the place where we're nourishing from there, then will forever change our relationship with food.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Aeryon Ashlie our use of innovative technology and QR codes so each product has a full program.  We are the only 100% women owned women focused Canadian brand

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/aeryon-ashlie  

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Aeryon Ashlie 09:13

It's the first one is the thoughts you think, okay. And the reason I say that is you can take all the ashwagandha in the world, but if you are in a fear based negative state of mind, and if that story or racket or whatever you want to call it in your head is a constant negative narrative, you're not going to be motivated to work out, you're not gonna be motivated to take care of body to eat well.

Aeryon Ashlie

But if you're really trying to have a goal of health and wellness, then surrounding yourself with people who are also on that same journey is really important as well.

Aeryon Ashlie

Really ensuring that you're having great food. And I think living by the 80-20 rule has enabled that for me, really, you know, 80% of time, I eat really great food. And on weekends. If I want licorice, and I want a glass of wine and I want to go with my friends and have a great meal I let myself do that.

ABOUT AERYON ASHLIE:

Since I was a young girl, my weight and size were something I was aware of teased relentlessly and ostracized from my peers, food became my comfort. Food never made fun of me or excluded me. Then as a young teen, I experienced heavy, painful periods, acne, weight gain and mood swings. Like many young girls my age, I was put on the birth control pill. Around that time, I fell into the trap of obsessive dieting and exercise, which led to my 20-year battle with the eating disorder Bulimia. I believed if I could just be smaller and fit like the girls in the magazines, I would finally find contentment.

A further psychological impact, was a result of my choice, to enter fitness competitions for over 13-years. That, and continued use of the IUD, resulted in hormonal imbalance and cycles of severe weight gain and loss.

In an “Ah-ha” moment 9 years ago, I finally took action to change my behaviours, patterns, and life. However, even as I took all the necessary steps to heal my relationship with food and my body, I was still having physical side effects from my years of continuous dieting, synthetic hormones, and high stress.

My body had stopped responding, I was gaining weight, suffering from exhaustion, insomnia, a non-existent sex drive, cravings, and mild depression. My whole body felt like it had turned on me.

So I started working on my nutrition, natural support supplements, daily movement, stress management, and sleep habits. Over time, I was able to finally find balance. As someone who has experienced the frustration of extreme hormonal imbalance, I knew that I wanted to help others who felt the same hopelessness. As a trainer and a coach, I was able to work with clients one-on-one, and address their needs through nutrition, movement, stress management, and sleep.
