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.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, CBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Eli Coberly to discover his healing journey through the subconscious and conscious world.

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

    

Highlights from today's episode include:

Eli Coberly 

They (Mayans) were saying, you know, if you don't change individually, and as a result of that, if we don't change collectively, then the world will be in trouble. And that's what they're talking about is the new world needs to occur so we can protect the one that we're living on.

Eli Coberly 

Because not only has consciousness arisen in a greater way than it was ever before on Earth, because of the internet. But we're also being made to recognize our mistakes, because everything's being recorded.

Eli Coberly 

you match in the day-to-day life with the dream time, you can transform your mind all the time. So, you're working towards something more authentic to yourself, to your calling, or your or your highest self.

 

ABOUT ELI COBERLY:

Eli Coberly is a world traveler and seeker of truth through adventure. At seventeen, he left his small Pacific Northwest town to fulfill his dream of becoming an Army paratrooper. At twenty, he was honorably discharged and began his search for a new dream.

Eli’s writing has taken him worldwide to explore a few of the bigger questions of our human existence, and his prophetic worldview combines military service, counterculture, and the anthropology and archeology of the world’s religious symbols. He has studied the migration of the indigenous and ingested their medicine, absorbed their art, and embodied their cosmovision.

Core purpose/passion: Eli Coberly’s quest went deep into the heart of man’s soul and symbolism—beginning with the Mayan culture—as seen through its stone-carved symbols and hieroglyphs throughout Central and South America. And then he began seeking echoes of the war-infused collective imagery in the cradle of civilization and among the ancient Egyptians

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Bea Caillet about her struggles to go gluten free in bread loving Paris and how she overcame her health issues by doing so.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Bea Caillet

At the very first beginning, during a few months, it was all a disaster. But since two American and Canadian bloggers, I've started, you know, getting to know how to cook, some vegan baking and stuff like that, how to replace eggs, and also how to deal with different gluten free flours. And then it just became very natural for me.

 

Bea Caillet

But you know, between…I had a choice, going gluten, dairy, whatever free and still suffering and taking a ton of medication and, you know, between the two choices from is really easy, but it's easier now that I am medication free than the first month.  

 

Bea Caillet

Because I think it's extremely important, especially when you're fresh and will also come from a family that is absolutely obsessed with food. We are foodies. So yeah, so I really think it's absolutely important to enjoy your food, if you feel miserable at each meal, I think it's not going to work.

 

ABOUT BEA CAILLET:

I’m Bea Caillet, a French woman who has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease ankylosing spondylitis; in February 2007. After almost 11 years of taking a lot of strong painkillers I decided to try healing myself naturally. One thing led to another, I went to a functional medicine doctor who told me I had to go “gluten and many other things” free. A little over a year on this diet I quit taking biotherapy and about 9 months later I was off all medication! That’s why in January 2020, I started my blog “Go Healthy With Bea” in order to share both my story and my gluten free recipes. A year and a half after creating my blog, I decided to go one step further by becoming an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Certified Gluten free Practitioner and get a Certificate in plant based patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu London in order to transform a side hustle into a whole career change.

Core purpose/passion: When I was first diagnosed with my autoimmune condition, I was told that it was a life sentence: I would suffer and would have to take very strong painkillers all my life. I've proven them wrong. That’s what I want to tell the whole world. I want to give them hope, to inspire them. I want to educate people to listen to their body and respect it.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Caroline Kusnetz about the pressure’s teens face both physically and emotionally and how her program GRIT is helping to build youth’s confidence.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Caroline Kusnetz

You know, a lot of kids through the pandemic, they’re lonelier than ever, and we're dealing with the effects of social media that you know, we're in this experiment, both kids and parents and we don't know what the long-term effects are.

Caroline Kusnetz

But we know the short-term effects are not good. The depression and anxiety rate is…I mean, as a parent of kids in this age group, seeing my own kids and their friends and hearing stories of my friends and their children. It is everywhere. It is everywhere and it's scary.

Caroline Kusnetz

I think a lot of youth are feeling like they're not heard. So, we're trying to marry a very complicated time with a lot of very challenging subjects and have a conversation where we can respect multiple points of view from both kids and parents.

 

 

ABOUT CAROLINE KUSNETZ:

Caroline Kusnetz is the co-founder and CEO of GRYT, a multi-faceted movement to equip and empower a struggling generation of youth; ages 8-16; to build the healthy mind-body habits that are foundational to achieving a sense of self-efficacy, resilience, and a place of leadership amid a sustainability-focused future. A former award-winning tech executive-turned-board certified functional medicine health coach and Iron Woman competitor, Kusnetz brings a powerful synergy of business-building acumen and comprehensive wellness expertise to an all-female team. Together, they are establishing a foundational framework that prepares both teens and their parents to effectively navigate the unique challenges of puberty and become resilient, passion-led adults.

Raised in New Jersey alongside one older brother, Kusnetz’s family of four regularly engaged in friendly competition as a means of imparting essential life skills. From deboning a fish to fixing a dishwasher, every “real world” lesson served to support a sense of self-reliance and resourcefulness that has served her to this day - and now motivates her to share the same formative experiences with American youth. After graduating magna cum laude from Massachusetts’ Babson College with a Bachelor’s in Marketing and Communications, she completed the University of Pittsburgh’s Semester at Sea, receiving academic honors while completing courses and traveling to ten countries. She then earned her Master’s in Business Administration from New York University’s Stern School of Business.

Entering the technology field, Kusnetz spent two decades advancing through the ranks of corporate leadership at Dell, IBM, and several start-ups. Just after becoming a new mother, she sustained extensive injuries - including a broken neck and traumatic brain injury - in a rollover automobile accident with her then-eight-week-old daughter.  The road to recovery took more than two years, during which time Kusnetz seized the opportunity of a second chance to pursue her passion for helping others to improve their quality of life with tools and resources backed by advanced brain health optimization science. She completed her Health Coaching Certification Program, board exam, WildFit Nutrition Counseling Credential, and a six-month internship with APO4.INFO to become a certified ReCODE Practitioner. She then founded WE BE Wellness with GRYT Co-Founder Carly Kaufman, creating a thriving mind-body functional wellness brand that has empowered hundreds of clients toward positive changes that support physical-mental balance.

Today, Kusnetz brings the same brain-body functional wellness approach to GRYT, focusing her expertise on a generation of teens struggling to find a place of belonging and contribution in today’s world. She resides in New York City with her husband and two children, where she regularly works with youth as school board president and executive vice president. She has also served as a mentor for the New York State Mentoring Program, Girl Scout Troop Leader, and as a counselor, speaker, and recruiter for the New Jersey Public School Community Cares Program.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, CBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Ron Phelan, Bowen Therapy Health Practitioner and International Instructor

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Ron Phelan 

But what Dr. Stack's approach was, he said, Forget about the teeth, the teeth, are not...their secondary to the jaw. His approach was if somebody came in with a dysfunction, he would look at their teeth, obviously, you look at their jaw take MRIs and X rays, and then say, right, the jaw is in the wrong position

Ron Phelan 

that means that yeah, a lot of the you know, things like lower backs and problems can be coming from the jaw. In fact, the work we were doing in the UK, I was working in the UK for seven years in a dental clinic and in amongst my teaching commitments, and we were finding there that about three quarters of people with TMJ dysfunctions, three quarters of those TMJs was causing problems throughout the body.

Ron Phelan 

at the end of the day, they will do one little procedure which I would say is 5 minutes with the primary move being the one on the jaw and I would say 96% of the time everything changes on that person everything bounces out. And I don’t know any other technique that can have such a profound effect on the body that the TMJ will have in that instance.

ABOUT RON PHELAN:

Ron Phelan has been involved in the natural therapies industry since the early 90’s, trained in various remedial massage techniques and also MORA® biofeedback therapy. In 1996, Ron trained in the Bowen style of work and from 1998 has practiced  Bowen in the Geelong region of Australia where Mr. Bowen worked for 26 years. He has been involved in researching the origins and experiencing the variations of the work through his contact with four of Mr. Bowen’s students as well as treated many of Bowen’s original patients.

In July 2014, Ron was inducted in to the Massage hall of fame in Las Vegas for his work in the Bowen area.

 

After practicing massage and Bowen for nearly 10 years, Ron started added to his practice, by teaching an interpretation of Bowen outside of Australia. A chance meeting with renowned orthodontist, the late Dr. Brendan Stack of the USA, started a 16 year friendship and Ron was invited to take training with Dr. Stack.

This amazing opportunity gave him a special insight to Dr. Stack’s techniques when had won him praise around the world.

Using analytical skills, developed from an Engineering background, Ron was then faced with the task of developing a unique approach to bring the orthodontic principles into the realm of the Bowen therapist. This proved to be highly successful and the results improved the treatment outcomes substantially. He was invited to teach these principles in the UK and the first TMJ class was held in 2011.

Since then “Practical Assessment Skill Courses, which includes the TMJ has been taught to Bowen and other allied health practitioners in 16 countries around the world. 

Adding to the TMJ based work, in 2013, Ron presented “Hormonal Release – the Bowen way” for the first-time outside Australia. Practitioners from 30 countries have now taken this course.

Core purpose/passion: Spreading the work of Dr. Stack to other practitioners to ensure that this work is carried on.

Highlights from today's episode include:

The first one was Archangel Michael pendant, which was that version. So, it was same shielding effect. But it was calming and clearing your energy field and emotional healing. And then it just continued on and on.

Peter Benson 

Where she put on the Archangel Michael pendant, and all of a sudden everything got quiet and calms her down and now she's actually very stable. And she was wearing it to bed. And she's like, that's the best night's sleep I've had in you know, ever.

Peter Benson 

So, you have five crystals in there from the Metatron, which is shielding effects. And that creates that protective layer that we've actually seen anecdotal evidence on. But when you put it on, the first thing you really feel is like a calming right over your field. You just feel calm.

Peter is a global public speaker and CEO of Energies of Service. His powerful copper healing and grounding tools are inspired by and channeled from the quantum field of creation. His handcrafted products are carefully attuned to help people heal, balance, and live harmoniously with their resonance field. They genuinely are energy tools for ascension and conscious living.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Silva Santé, Natural Consultant & Author.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/silva-sante2 

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Silva Santé 

they conducted a study on plants that didn't need a lot of light to grow and could eliminate toxic substances created by the equipment in these space stations. Their findings showed that indoor plants can actually clean air of cancer causing volatile organic compounds like formaldehyde, and benzene. These chemical compounds are actually found everywhere.

Silva Santé 

So, there's more energy basically, I would say, in a fresh sprig of mint, or basil, or anything that you pick from your garden, basically, than there is in a whole processed meal.

Silva Santé 

if you don't have the time and space, then at least grow some flowers and grow some herbs. And that will help a lot. And it aids a lot of things in your life, digestion and gives your body real nutrients and vitamins and minerals that it actually needs.

 

ABOUT SILVA SANTÉ:

A Natural Health Consultant and author. I developed the Silva Santé System – a Phytoholistic© Approach to better health, and increased quality of life. By applying some very simple foundational shifts, this approach can help you create an environment that strengthens your own foundation for improved function of immune, digestive, and nervous systems. Since 1996, I’ve specialized in the use of therapeutic plants in various forms and their incorporation in the preparation of daily meals. In 2019, I was a guest on a talk show called Bienvenue chez Cécile Diane which airs on CTRB TV; a French station in Quebec Canada where I showcased a few of my recipes. Due to popular demand, I documented these savory recipes and more! The Silva Santé cookbook is chock-full of information on the benefits of all the ingredients used in the recipes, a section on essential oils, plus a chart of edible flowers. Now available in French and English.
