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. Now resourceful & resolved to share with you all the tools to take care of your health & vitality!

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Karese Laguerre about her children’s sleep and health concerns and how they were treated through myofascial therapy and breathing.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Karese Laguerre 

But when I came into this world and learning about myofunctional therapy, what I actually discovered is that ADHD, and all of the symptoms, because it's a symptom based diagnosis, all of the symptoms of it actually have a 70% overlap with the symptoms of sleep disorders in children.

Karese Laguerre  23:59

Alleviated by doing a lot of work on breathing, establishing good nasal breathing, good tongue posturing, and ensuring that the pharyngeal muscles are nice and strong and able to help self sustain because they're still gonna relax when you sleep

Karese Laguerre 

So those ear infections, you know, our tongue is actually against the roof of the mouth whenever we're swallowing. It actually, when it presses up against the mouth in a peristaltic or normal swallow, it's actually helping to relieve or drain our Eustachian tube

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Melissa Deally about her methods of healing body, emotion, mind, and spirit while spreading the message of Girls Matter.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Melissa Deally  When it comes to other human beings, we should, you know, listen more and talk less. But when it comes to our own mind and the voices in our head, we need to talk more and listen less, because so much of it is BS and talk back to it and say no, that's not true, cancel, cancel, cancel, put a positive spin

Melissa Deally 

meanwhile, our mission is literally to stop teenage marriages, which stops teenage pregnancies, and give the girls a leg to stand on and break the poverty cycle, one girl, one family, one village at a time.

Manon Bolliger

It really is that idea of, you know, following what is, what's coming up, what's opening. And then asking, not assuming that this or that is needed, or, you know, just staying very present to the needs that are real, and to the vision that comes.

 

ABOUT MELISSA DEALLY

Melissa Deally’s mission is to heal the world.  Chronic illness does not have to be a life sentence, and when Melissa realized the body is designed to self heal, she set about getting trained so that she could truly help people heal and then train others to do the same. Melissa is an Integrative Mind-Body Health Practitioner, a Trainer of NLP and Hypnotherapy and a Master Practitioner in Timeline Therapy.  She’s dedicated to helping others heal by addressing and removing the toxins in all 4 bodies – the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies and calls herself “The Friendly Toxin Slayer”. Melissa’s business is 100% virtual, and she works with the entire English speaking world.
Melissa also uses the power of functional medicine lab tests mailed to your home, while offering a very high level of support, to ensure her clients’ success, as we navigate the path bringing the bodies back into balance, while creating new lifestyle habits to ensure lasting results.
Melissa is an international speaker, five time best-selling author, and has been named to the 2022 CREA Global Award list, and the winner of the Alignable 2023 & 2022 Local Business Person Of The Year Award for Whistler.  She is also the recipient of the 2022 & 2021 Quality Care Award by Businesses From The Heart.  Melissa is the host of the “Don’t Wait For Your Wake Up Call!” podcast, a podcast offering practical education around health, which ranked in the top 5% of Global podcasts by Listen Notes in the first 3 months of launching.
When not serving her clients, Melissa can be found on her paddle board,  backcountry hiking & camping with her daughter’s, downhill or cross country skiing, or planning her next trip for her Girl Guide unit or working on her passion project, Girls Matter, helping keep girls in school in Uganda, breaking the poverty cycle, one girl, one family, one village at a time.

Core purpose/passion: To heal the world, in health and also by educating the girls with my non-profit, Girls Matter, as when we educate the girls we stop teenage marriages, pregnancies and dependence on a husband for their welfare.  Instead we provide the girls the ability to stand on their own 2 feet. By educating the girls we grow the GDP of the country, and focusing 1 girl, 1 family, 1 village at a time we can help raise the living standard for all.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) chats with Shannon Leggett about her innovative practice using both physiotherapy and yoga to treat her clients.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

 

Shannon Leggett 
if I was able to help them treat their chronic stress, help them implement some lifestyle changes, and I would be better at it. Their pain would be better, I would be more effective and an efficient clinician

 

Manon Bolliger  08:14

Yeah, yeah. And it just comes, you know, to show to how our own self care is essential to really allow our full creativity, like when we're in the profession of helping others, you know, we don't always think creativity matters, but it does

 

Shannon Leggett 

And to think about right, like lifestyle management, making changes in you know, diet, sleep, all of that. It's so much cheaper.

 

ABOUT SHANNON LEGGETT: 

Shannon Leggett, PT, MPT, YT-200 is a licensed Physical Therapist, certified Yoga Instructor, and owner of Shannon Leggett Physical Therapy, PLLC.

Most of Shannon’s 20+ year career has been in NYC, helping thousands of corporate executives and high-level athletes recover from injury. Determined to give her clients the highest quality of care and optimize their outcomes, Shannon developed a unique approach to treatment. She combines her extensive background in evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal pain with her passion for yoga, to provide care of mind, body, and spirit.  Shannon uses her expertise in movement, manual skills, and lifestyle management to help patients climb mountains, cross finish lines, and develop healthy habits which help them transform their health.  Her expertise has been featured in Bustle, Insider, Healthline, LIVESCIENCE, Women’s World, Parade, and on podcasts such as Healthy, Wealthy, and Smart and The Heart of Healing: The Healer’s Journey.

When Shannon is not helping clients achieve their goals, you will find her running races in Central Park, teaching yoga classes, volunteering, or hiking somewhere in the world.

Core purpose/passion: I am on a mission to help people live well.  The amount of chronic disease in the U.S. is staggering. The sad part is that most of this is avoidable.  While there are medications to help, I believe there is a cheaper and more empowering way to go.  Lifestyle management is key here. However, people know more about their computers or the stock market then how to care for their bodies. I want to empower people to change their habits to by providing them with education.

Also, I am extremely passionate about normalizing mental health as health care.  I faced so much stigma when I was first diagnosed-even from my own medical providers. It made an awful time in my life harder. I made a promise to myself that I would always be honest about my journey and help those struggling so no one should ever have to feel like I was made to feel!.
