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:

Toby Pasman 10:27

One being that long term meditators produce a lot more gamma waves than the average person. And gamma waves are kind of a lesser talked about brainwave, they're actually the fastest of all the brainwaves. And basically, neuroscientists have kind of discovered that they play a big role in our awareness, our ability to be intently focused and actively go about sort of solving different problems, along with sort of integrating information coming from different areas of our awareness

Toby Pasman 13:40

Thinking about things cognitively processing, we're producing mostly beta waves. Now, when someone meditates and kind of turning their awareness inward, you start producing more, you drop down into producing more of these alpha waves. And alpha brainwaves are really important for kind of relaxation, also increasing people's ability to learn, process, and recall a lot of information really quickly.

Toby Pasman  And basically, with neuro technologies, were able to, short circuit, the process in the sense that it might take a meditator a long time to be able to eventually sink into producing beta waves through their meditation. But I could put a couple of electrodes on someone's brain and specifically stimulate a beta frequency. So, then their brain is going to just directly entrain to that frequency that's being stimulated. So, it's, it's a similar sort of mechanism in terms of altering brainwaves and the electrical activity, both with meditation along with kind of these newer neuro technologies, but these different technologies can really accelerate the process quite dramatically.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger ND, talks to Anne-Laure Peaucelle a yoga teacher and yoga therapist specializing in emotional and mental health.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/anne-laure-peaucelle

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Anne-Laure Peaucelle  05:20

I think that…so, the way I look at it is that emotions are experienced in our body, and our body keeps that memory of previous experiences. And often when we have important events or like big experiences in our life, it will have an emotion...we will have an emotional response to it. And depending on how we process that event, at that time in our lives, I think those emotions can kind of get trapped or stuck in our bodies

Anne-Laure Peaucelle  07:38

I think where yoga can be helpful with that is that it helps us cultivate that self-awareness. And I think, when we make that intention to start to cultivate self-awareness, I believe that things start to make themselves more obvious to us. And we start maybe to see things differently, or to make connections that we may not have made in the past.

Anne-Laure Peaucelle  18:47

Like the way that I see emotions is that some of them that are easy to feel some of them are challenging for us to feel. And as we increase our ability to sit with the ones that are difficult to feel, is really how we can move them out and release them. And so, movement can be a good way to create awareness as well.

 

About Anne-Laure Peaucelle 

Anne-Laure is a Yoga Therapist with a passion for emotional and mental wellness. She first came to yoga in 2012 while working as an engineer, and it quickly became an integrated part of her life. Her natural curiosity and love of learning led her to train as a yoga teacher, and then as a yoga therapist. Yoga therapy has added a new dimension to her teaching and she has brought yoga to hospitals and rehabilitation centers, as well as veterans and women's shelters. Always incorporating therapeutic yoga and encouraging her students to become curious about what is happening in their bodies and minds, her intention is to empower her students to build self-awareness and resilience using the simple yet powerful tools of yoga.

Core purpose / passion: | My purpose and vision is to change the way we (as a society and as individuals) look at emotional and mental health. I'm passionate about bringing the body back into the healing process through yoga. It's all connected and we're all connected. It's been so fascinating to me to see how different modalities, different cultures approach emotions. I'm passionate about people, learning how we operate and why we do the things we do. Yoga gives us a way to better understand ourselves and each other.

Aug 19, 2021

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger ND, talks to Hilary Crowley who discovered her interest in the healing arts as the grandchild of three doctors & has studied with leaders in energy medicine and medical intuition.  She is the author of The Power of Energy Medicine: Your Natural Prescription for Resilient Health; Skyhorse/Simon & Schuster 2021.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Hilary Crowley 10:56

To be honest, and to show honesty, and honesty beyond the point where you're trying to make yourself sound smarter than you are or more knowledgeable or you want to hold the authority in the room. Well, when you're on is sometimes you have to say beautiful things like "I don't know". Groundbreaking words, like" let’s look into it."

 Hilary Crowley 15:29

As I'm listening to clarity, boundaries, balance, it certainly keeps all of the noise of what is my relationship to you. Are you approving of me? Are you all the ego stuff? It's like, well, it doesn't really matter, if you approve of me, or I know where I stand with you unconditionally. It also carries forth with integrity. Afterwards, that integrity would be another word because I'm an energy worker.

Hilary Crowley

But intuition for me is the body is always healing itself. And sometimes it needs help because sometimes we don't have to do it alone. So, intuition is in me listening inward to the inner intelligence of the person who's decided to share this in the room with me

 

About Hilary Crowley

Hilary Crowley is the author of The Power of Energy Medicine: Your Natural Prescription for Resilient Health; Skyhorse/Simon & Schuster 2021. She discovered her interest in the healing arts as the grandchild of three doctors. In her early career, she worked at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and Exeter Hospital. Since 1995, she has studied with leaders in energy medicine and medical intuition.

In 2008, Hilary opened her office as a Natural Health Intuitive at the integrative & general family medical center, Whole Life Health Care in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. With clients referred by surgeons, nurses, physicians, psychotherapists, acupuncturists, physical therapists, nutritionists, and other holistic medical practitioners, Hilary uses energy medicine techniques to identify root issues of disease and stress.

Hilary’s hands-on work involves balancing and interpreting the subtle energy field of the human body to bring wellness and authentic health to her clients.

She teaches on topics of energy medicine and health throughout the United States.

Hilary is a graduate of Syracuse University and lives with her husband and two sons in New Hampshire.

Core purpose/passion : To continue doing what I'm doing. To get the message to the healthcare world, that if we can take back the instinctive connection between patient and health provider, that energy of care, sharing, and the love of the healing arts, this would revolutionize the conversation around how we heal and how the healthcare system can restore the heart and soul of itself.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger ND, talks to Tom Paladino who is a scalar energy researcher who wants to heal the world for the benefit of people.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Tom Paladino 05:43

I believe that scalar energy actually potentiates any type of homeopathic reagent if you will. Yeah. So, this now will, if you will lift the veil of and will no longer have this mystery that surrounds homeopathy. It really is scalar energy and action. And this, to me, this is so exciting, that we finally can explain the universe. And we finally have a handle on these matters, so to speak, homeopathy really is a function of scalar energy.

 

Tom Paladino 07:10

In other words, before you have a physical body, you have to have instructions. If science ever considered the fact that there are seven chakras, and it's my consideration that those chakras are empowered, or instructed by scalar energy, then we have those seven points of instruction in our body. And those seven scalar energy vortices give the body their information that they need.

 

Tom Paladino

So scalar light is much more than just the intelligence of the universe, it sustains everything. Without scalar light. We wouldn't have a heartbeat without scalar light we would not have brainwaves. Without scalar light, the universe would be pure chaos in an instant, in an instant. So, I would say that that's the fundament of the universe, scalar light, that's the information system of the universe. And I have the ability to control that energy by way of a device

 

 

About Tom Paladino

Tom Paladino is a scalar energy researcher based in Florida. Scalar energy is the fundamental life force found everywhere in the world, space, and universe. It originates from the sun and stars. Chi, prana, OM, mana, life force, pyramid energy, or zero-point energy are synonymous terms for scalar energy. 

He theorized that all energy in the universe initiates as scalar energy; and that the sun of our solar system and the stars of the universe are the points of origin, “the storehouses,” for scalar energy. He further theorized that scalar energy is instructive energy, as the entire universe is instructed by this Divine Essence. Subsequently, all spiritual, cognitive, emotional, and physical activity in the universe is initiated and maintained by scalar energy instructions. Scalar energy provides order in the universe. 

CORE PASSION/PURPOSE:  I want to heal the world for the glory of God and the benefit of people.  There must be meaningful progress to heal mankind of disease.  Scalar Light is the answer for many Spiritual, mental-emotional and physical diseases.  I believe it will be necessary to treat most of the people in the world free of charge with Scalar Light.  Hence, I envision a worldwide, free healing ministry for billions of people.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger ND, talks to Dr Esther Onyoni who is a Pharmacist, Functional Medicine Practitioner and a Certified Health Coach who helps her clients gain their energy and feel better.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr. Esther Onyoni 05:00

To me, it seemed that the people that always tended to make me want to hit the reset button that the people who had chronic conditions, diabetes stood out for me, because I definitely see a lot of those prescriptions. And it's more, I can see the prescription, and then I can look at somebody's face. And I could see that that's probably just not all I need to get to them. So, there is more. So, when you dig deeper into what else is going on, you're free.

 

Dr. Esther Onyoni Now the functional medicine portion is because I was really fascinated that you can actually get to the bottom of this. And you don't have to just keep treating the condition of just managing the condition, you can actually get to the bottom of how you got here.

 

Dr. Esther Onyoni So, if you help someone in functional medicine, you help find the root cause of why they are where they are, they will see why they need to either get involved into some kind of physical activity or why they need to be involved in any kind of nutrition, healthy nutrition. And so that fascinated me. So, I'm really working into that and encouraging my patients that there is a way you can get to the root cause of this.

 

About Dr. Esther Onyoni

Dr. Esther Onyoni is a Pharmacist, Functional Medicine Practitioner and a Certified Health Coach. She works with people living with diabetes who are struggling to keep their numbers within normal ranges and maintain their energy through the day to successfully get their best readings, gain their energy and feel better. Esther’s passion for finding a better way for her clients was sparked after over a decade of practicing as a pharmacist. She took care of people living with diabetes and other chronic conditions and noticed that they were on multiple medications. Their medication lists kept getting longer each time they saw their doctor. Some medications were given to treat side effects caused by other medications. 

That is why she decided to get involved in aiding her clients to manage diabetes. She became a Health Coach and Functional Medicine Practitioner and helps her clients get to the root of their diabetes and take charge of their health.

Core purpose / passion: My mission is to educate and inspire individuals to be active participants in their own health. I’m passionate about teaching individuals that they can hit the reset button and get better.

Aug 4, 2021

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger ND, talks to Andy Duchovnay and Pam Urbas from The Indigo Sanctuary. We are sound healers, rock collectors, who collect rocks from Nature in sustainable ways, throughout the US, and spiritual artists who do lapidary arts.

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

 

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Pam Urbas 07:41

I don't tell people that practice should be yoga, or practice should be meditation. When I started teaching, I was teaching in a regular yoga environment, and I moved more towards therapeutic yoga. And a lot of my clients were into prayer. And I felt that it was just as beneficial as meditation. So, it really depends on the person.

 

Andy Duchovnay 14:12

And we believe the importance of energy, and the presence of energy everywhere. So just like when you raise food organically, the energy of raising it in a in a good ethical way and in a sustainable way. It infuses the food, and you don't get negative karma from it. And we feel the same about ethically sourcing our gemstones. We know that we're collecting it in a respectful way. And it adds to our sense because we write about our stones, and we say every stone has a story.

 

Andy Duchovnay 16:41

And it all weaves together because we started taking gemstones and Reiki and fusing them and incorporating them in playing bowl or singing bowl playing sticks. It adds to the energy level and the spiritual experience of it. So, we like to have connections between things that we might not always see, but it just evolves that way.

 

 

About Andy Duchovnay and Pam Urbas

Andy and Pam are spiritual partners of 36 years. They are both empaths and have both been healers since childhood.

Andy is a retired environmental lawyer, having worked for the USEPA for 20 years. Before then, he represented organic food producers and was involved in the development of the US Organic Food Production Act of 1990.

Pam is a yoga teacher, who worked mainly with people with special needs, the elderly and women in homeless shelters. She now teaches Yin Yoga online, a practice Pam and Andy use in their home practice.

Together, Pam and Andy have conducted Yin Yoga and Singing Bowl Sound Bath programs, and conducted chakra balancing sessions, throughout the Philadelphia and suburban area. They are spiritual entrepreneurs, who travel throughout the US to collect healing gemstones for their artwork, as well as annual trips to Nepal, to work collaboratively with Jaki and Tulsi, their business partners.

 

Core purpose/passion: Our core purpose is to support people develop and grow their spiritual lives. We believe that self-care is necessary. When we take care of ourselves, we can give to others in a sustainable and heart-centered way. To have a meaningful spiritual life it is helpful to have a Home Sanctuary where you can quiet your mind and relax, meditate, pray, play singing bowls, do yoga, journal or anything else you have included in your daily home practice.
