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.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Chris Wark 

And eventually I went to the doctor and was referred around and found myself at a gastroenterologist who did a colonoscopy. When I woke up from that procedure, he said you've got a golf ball sized tumor in your large intestine, your colon. And they biopsied it and called me within a day or so and said, it's confirmed you have colon cancer, and we need to get you into surgery right away and get this thing out of you before it spreads and kills you.

Chris Wark

But I immediately adopted a raw food diet, and started juicing and there was no deliberation I just right away, I just thought, Okay, this is what George did to get, well, this is what I'm gonna do. And I believed that healing was possible.

Manon Bolliger  26:31

it's common sense to look at what can you do positively to your body, and you don't have to have cancer to do that. You know, we can do this ahead, we can avoid the inflammation, we can have a good immune system.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) chats with Dr. Tom Ingegno about his clinics use of cold-water therapy and cupping to treat a multitude of conditions.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/dr-tom-ingegno  

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr. Tom Ingegno  11:37

It's the idea that we invest in staying healthy, right. You know, some people get it, right. I don't eat this, or I, you know, this is my diet, or I go to the gym regularly, but they're still missing pieces

Dr. Tom Ingegno  20:13

the idea is we're treating the body almost like we're creating an artificial pump, right? How strong can we get everything to constrict and then dilate and constrict, again, to kind of pump in and out fresh blood and stagnant blood for that.

Dr. Tom Ingegno 

cupping is creating a vacuum and sucking the skin up into that vacuum. And what we see happening is we create a space between the skin the fascia, the fascia, and the muscle, and any stagnation, any lactic acid buildup, any metabolic waste that's in that tissue gets drawn into this space that's created and our body has a better time cleaning that up.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Dr. Gala Gorman about the buildup of toxins in our bodies and how our own energy can remove them.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/dr-gala-gorman

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr. Gala Gorman  10:32

So anytime we disrupt a system with medication or even a supplement, we are attempting to essentially interrupt or interfere with an internal signaling that we perceive has kind of gone haywire, right. And so, we simply don't understand the human body well enough to do that long term.

Dr. Gala Gorman

Like, let's ask all the questions, let's go a little bit deeper, and see how we can help the source, not fix the interim problems that are sort of like the symptom, you know.

Dr. Gala Gorman 

I'm going to figure out where the energetic imbalances are, we're going to work to rebalance that imbalance, and we're going to eliminate the toxicity that's built up. And when that happens, your body frees up energy and resources to heal whatever has been going on.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) chats with Dr. Stacey Francis about how she treats the whole body with chiropractic, kinesiology, and nutrition.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/dr-stacey-francis  

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Manon Bolliger  18:02

Yeah, no. And I do think it's part of being a doctor, if we stretch the definition to being those that are in practice helping people. I mean, it would be really good to know what other modalities or other therapists do before choosing that route, right? 

 

Dr Stacey Francis  20:09

So, you've got to understand that the nerve supply goes everywhere to all your glands, all your organs. For them to be healthy, you need the nerve supply getting there adequately. And as a chiropractor, and specifically a kinesiologist, this is what I do is right, I identify weak muscles. And I use muscle testing to determine imbalances in the structural system.

 

Dr Stacey Francis

So, if you have any sinus issues, we're going to look in the upper neck, if you're having lung issues, we're going to look in the mid thoracic, if you have any GI issues, we're going to look in the lumbar spine. But I look at everything every time to evaluate what is strong, what is weak, where the nerve supplies go and where it's not going. Get it there. So, we know you're getting everything you need for that organ system plus nutrition as well.

 

ABOUT DR STACEY FRANCIS

For over 25 years, Dr. Stacey Francis has been treating patients using chiropractic kinesiology, nutrition and functional medicine in the metro Detroit area. Her blend of advanced training and expertise allows her to help patients achieve optimal wellness through balancing the structural, biochemical and psyche systems of the body. From neck pain to stomach pain, autoimmune disorders or allergies, tired and can’t figure out why, Dr. Stacey is here for you.


Core purpose / passion: | I'm passionate about leaving my patients better then before they met me. My mission is to help them achieve their goals in a healthy, happy and natural way.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) talks with Dr. John Poothullil about his findings on what is actually causing diabetes and what the right cures are.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/dr-john-poothullil

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr. John Poothullil

We all inherit a certain amount of fat storage capacity. After a meal, the liver keeps 120 grams of glucose. If you have a high carbohydrate meal, the rest of it is converted into long term storage to fatty acid and to fat, send it to fat cells. If fat cells are full, the fatty acids stay in the blood.

Dr. John Poothullil  10:12

So, obesity is a visual thing, it’s a cosmetic thing that is should not be a medical concern. For medical consideration, you need to know the fat storage capacity that you inherited.

Dr. John Poothullil MD 

Every type two diabetic patient should ask the doctor, hey, if I am resistant to insulin, why are you givin

 

ABOUT DR JOHN POOTHULLIL

Award-winning author and nationally syndicated health expert, Dr. John Poothullill, practiced medicine as a pediatrician and allergist for more than 30 years, with 27 of those years in the state of Texas. He began his practice in 1974 and retired in 2008. He holds certifications from the American Board of Pediatrics, The American Board of Allergy & Immunology, and the Canadian Board of Pediatrics.

During his medical practice, Dr. John became interested in understanding the causes of and interconnections between hunger, satiation, and weight gain. His interest turned into a passion and a multi-decade personal study and research project that led him to read many medical journal articles, medical textbooks, and other scholarly works in biology, biochemistry, physiology, endocrinology, and cellular metabolic functions. This eventually guided him to investigate the theory of insulin resistance as it relates to diabetes. Recognizing that this theory was illogical, he spent a few years rethinking the biology behind high blood sugar and finally developed the fatty acid burn switch as the real cause of diabetes.

This led to the publication of Dr. John's first two books, Eat Chew Live; and Diabetes: The Real Cure and The Right Cause. His own diagnosis of cancer inspired him to write. Surviving Cancer and When Your Child Has Cancer. Prompted by the COVID-19 response, he published Your Health Is At Risk, speaking to the vast amounts of disinformation, misinformation, and missing information that is available, especially in regard to lifestyle diseases, and how to discern fact from fiction. This title has won two gold medals in the IPPY and Nautilus Awards in 2023. His sixth publication is available now, The Diabetes-Free Cookbook  Exercise Guide: 80 Utterly Delicious Recipes; 12 Easy Exercises To Keep Your Blood Sugar Low.


Dr. Poothullil has written articles on hunger and satiation, weight loss, diabetes, and the senses of taste and smell. His articles have been published in medical journals such as  Physiology and Behavior , Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews; Journal of Women’s Health, Journal of Applied Research, Nutrition, and Nutritional Neuroscience. His work has been quoted in Woman’s Day, Fitness, Red Book, and Woman’s World.

Dr. Poothullil has been the health consultant for the nationally syndicated AM radio talk show, America’s First News, which is broadcast on over 100 stations across the US. He is also a nationally syndicated columnist for the Price of Business Digital Network.


Core purpose/passion: Your health is in your hands and is determined by what they put into your body. Reconnect with your authentic weight. Enjoy your food, mindfully chewing each bite, allowing your brain to guide your choices of what to eat and when to stop eating. Grains and grain products should be less than 30% of your diet. Question long-standing medical theories, such as insulin resistance, which has never been proven.
