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!

Highlights from today's episode include:

Michelle Barrial  (06:06):

So really we have this energy flowing through us and then there's energy all around us in our environment. So you're really connecting to that universal energy. And what you're doing is you're acting as a channel so that the energy flows through you. And that's where you can sense if there's blockages in the person's, I call it their highway, their bio highway. So if you can sense that there's a blockages much like traffic it's blocked sometimes and backed up, it's the same way with our body. So when you can sense that there's a blockage in the area due to a physical symptom, or again, due to some kind of spiritual or mental block, then what I do is just transmit the energy through myself that I channeled it as a channel. And then that's when I can feel that it starts to break up or sort of dissolve, I could feel and have that sensation that it's, it's opening up the channel.

Michelle Barrial  (17:42):

So our conscious mind is what we're in most of the time, but in reality, our subconscious mind is the mind where your memory is longterm memories, part of where your imagination is. So, and it's also where you have a lot of beliefs from childhood traumas and things that you don't remember that come up that are still affecting you today as an adult.

Michelle Barrial  (40:02):

So in my book, I talk about the ways that you can create a healthy life, body minded spirit. So I talk about how to relax physically like mind hacks for sleeping. I talk about breathing how important it is to, to maintain your breath control, particularly when your emotions try to take over, and then you wanna help yourself to be calm again and, and feel like you're not losing control, but rather that you're are in control of your emotions. So I teach steps in there for breathing with a few exercises.

 

About Michelle Barrial:

Dr. McPhie's passion for medicine and healing began at a very young age growing up in Zambia and South Africa.  Building  upon her love of the natural world and science, she  completed her undergraduate degree in Biology at McGill University, and then went on to complete a 4 year study of natural medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, completed 2 years of clinical practice in Toronto, and then returned to the West Coast  to continue her career. She has operated a successful family practice for over 20 years seeing patients of all ages from all over the lower mainland, across Canada and abroad. 

Dr McPhie lectures frequently at universities, colleges and to the public. She has a passion for creating connections and community. Dr. McPhie believes loneliness and isolation are an under considered social determinant if health.  Our health suffers greatly if we are lonely and lack connection.  As a result, Dr. McPhie does workshops with teachers and community groups where play, active learning, creativity and connections are used to find solutions and reduce loneliness in vulnerable populations.  She believes that connecting people to themselves and each other is powerful medicine for keeping us healthy and happy.

She was the recipient of the David Schleich President's award of Excellence and the Dr. Patricia Wales award for her significant contribution to the development of the naturopathic profession in Canada.  She was also recognised by UBC as Mentor of the Year for her many years as a mentor in the nutritional sciences program.

Dr. Mcphie is very passionate about treating a wide variety of conditions for the whole family with naturopathic medicine.  She has a general naturopathic practice and therefore treats a wide variety of conditions and concerns. Dr Mcphie is an avid supporter of children's health and prevention.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger, ND, chats with Mike Marschausen a holistic health coach, intuitive healer, empath, and highly sensitive person, years after his deployment to Afghanistan as a United States army in infantry

Listen to the full story today! https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/Mike-Marschausen

Highlights from today's episode include:

Mike Marschausen (22:49):
Of course you have to come through a place where you realize you don't need to be fixed and you'll get a lot more healing in that way. But you know, it's, that's something that you really have to go through even just like intellectually, it isn't going to cut it.


Mike Marschausen (23:06):
You still have this, this feeling of, well, I have to just, if I could just fix this, then, you know, then that'll happen. And that's definitely been a driving force for me through, through everything, through all the healing and through my curiosity and my passion and the discipline. And so this is, one of the positive sides to the wounded healer, not necessarily the shadow side is that it drives my curiosity. It draws my passion it just drives me wanting to be better wanting to learn more healing modalities.

Mike Marschausen (24:35):
I've done healing around this, I've also a kind of an image that comes up, whether this is just an actual past life or whether this is just you know mental imagery to, to teach the lesson is as a monk who He, wants to serve God so, so much, but from such a place of fear, and he's so afraid to do anything wrong through because he doesn't want to be judged by God, or judged to be unholy. So is so afraid to do really anything. And, you know, it definitely doesn't want to touch money, doesn't want any type of intimate relationships.

Mike Marschausen (25:22):
So this just keeps you from living your life, it keeps you to stay small and you know, and this is like this idea that so many healers and empaths have, right? Like that's what it means to be Holy. And so with that came up, we had to work around, this is ,I'd rather be whole than Holy, so we should never seek to be Holy because that's not even like a real thing.

Mike Marschausen (35:24):
I see empath as a vortex and so I think all the empaths collectively are serving as like the vortex is for the collective consciousness, right.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger, ND, chats with Candace Plattor, former addict, Addictions Therapist

Listen to the full story today! https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/candace-plattor 

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Candice Plattor  (10:39):

But I found that I was, it was hard for me to be in alignment with that philosophy after a while, because they see addiction as a disease. i can't just say, I'm not going to have Crohn's anymore, but I can do that with addiction. And they tell us that we're powerless over this disease. And I was already seeing that I was not powerless over this disease, you know, so it was, it was a difficult juxtaposition for me. And I decided to not continue to go. I don't see addiction as a disease.

Dr Manon (18:01):

There's a, the need to know that the addict can, or the one with addictive behaviours let's say is actually able to change that there is a belief, even in the 12 step program, as you said, which basically tells you to keep repeating I'm an addict. And you know, and it's like, if it becomes your label, then you really can't, you don't believe that there's even a chance to get this right.

Dr Manon (18:49):

And for the enablers as well, because they, they actually have that program too..
