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 Josh Mathe on how you can be motivated to get healthy and fit by making the work fun!

Highlights from today's episode include:

Josh Mathe 

You know, bicep curls are awesome. And eating broccoli is awesome. But I really try to also help people connect with what is the, you know, state of family and friends and connections in your life? What are you doing with your brain every day? How was your spiritual health?

Josh Mathe 

So you know, it's a lot of psychology, a lot of mental and spiritual and emotional work to make change, it's definitely not just about knowing the amount of carbs, protein and fat you should eat or how many bicep curls you should be doing. It's, about fundamentally changing who you are and how you move through the world.

Josh Mathe 

But for simplistic reasons. I think there is a voice that is kind of sabotaging ourselves. And that's the voice that is speaking that is driving the bus. I think when we are negotiating with ourselves like that might sound like I had a really hard day you, I've been working really hard, I deserve to sit on the couch and watch the show and not go for a walk, I can go for a walk tomorrow.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Kavita Sahai about being told she was healthy even though she was suffering and how essential oils changed her life for the better.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Therese Forton Barnes 

No perfume will ever tell you what, what ingredients are in their perfume because of this law. But that law, so you can take...you can make a product and you can put fragrance in it. You can put 50 carcinogens in there. And nobody's going to question you.

 

Therese Forton Barnes 

Same with laundry detergent, exact same thing. What's in your laundry detergent, you're sleeping in it. You're breathing in the fumes that are off gassing from your clothes all day long. Your dryer is heating up all these chemicals.

 

Therese Forton Barnes  17:52

But try just eliminating what you're using for a month and see if you're having ailments. And I'll tell you 100% of the time that I get people to do this, they realize they're not waking up with a sore throat, they're not wheezing in the middle of the night, they're sleeping better.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Kavita Sahai about being told she was healthy even though she was suffering and how essential oils changed her life for the better.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Kavita Sahai 

But the oils, I think what they really helped me because at the time I had a leaky gut, and I wasn't absorbing anything. So there were no the nutrition nor vitamins nor supplements, nothing was absorbing, but the oils go right into your bloodstream, right? So that I was actually feeling the effect of and so I could start to sleep, which was the biggest issue. 

Manon Bolliger  07:22

Yeah, and I think it is using it the right way. I mean, I do think that things do have side effects if you don't know what you're doing, right, which is why like being trained, properly matters.

Kavita Sahai  07:37

It matters, formulation matters, safety around products, and dilution. And so that was part of my discovery was I was using them wrong, I was putting oils directly onto the body, I was probably doing more harm than good.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Jack Blackwell about his experience in the trauma that affects us today could actually go back generations.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Jack Blackwell 

Yeah, we're about 40%, childhood trauma and about maybe, let's say, 40% of our problems and challenges come from that. But we're not a blank slate as an infant, we have inherited the family patterns, we have inherited the family energies. And if the family is super traumatized, that's the energy we inherited.

 

Jack Blackwell 

And so they get into the lineage, and then these energies get passed down, and they have an entry point into us and into our family system. And they cause havoc, they wreak havoc. They're sometimes they're the voices in our heads. Sometimes the voices in our heads are not ours. They're not ours, there's something that's messing with us.

 

Jack Blackwell 

We don't know why, but we can't stop hoarding things. You know, many times it's because our people didn't have anything and the ancestral imprint of I don't have anything, and I would just so desperately need food I so desperately need sustenance to survive. Those imprint our DNA and imprint the energetics, and we inherit them.

The tool family Constellation work being a Spiritual process that leaves a powerful imprint, by demonstrating our Spiritual natures, to those attending.
