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 (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.

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.

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.

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.

while I was in school, I learned that the tradition of naturopathy really comes from the German water cure system, and that there were these health resorts. I mean, there, they were called sanitariums. They were called nature care centers. But they were these places where people would go and spend a period of time, like a health vacation in which they would undergo a series of treatments.

Dr Marcus Coplin, ND

helping this body better regulate itself, you can help the body better kind of scan and attenuate to whatever conditions are present

Dr Marcus Coplin, ND

the emergence of spaces like hot spring resorts, urban bath houses, health retreats, health resorts, these are places where people are going to be actively able to go and spend a focused amount of time to go through a process of healing, under properly trained guidance.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Amy Bondar 

I think the main obstacle that people have is that for so many years, we've approached nutrition for weight loss. And we really just thought about using food as a way to use lose weight. And I believe that food is so much more than that, right?

 

Amy Bondar

what we're missing is that exploration, we go into shaming, guilt about eating it, and veering off our nutritional path, but we're not doing the work. We're not doing the work to resolve the stresses and conflicts so that we're not constantly repeating that pattern of going back to food.

 

Amy Bondar 29:43

I just think food is meant to be enjoyed. And it's really here to give us the energy and vitality to do what we love every single day of our lives. And when we can get to the place where we're nourishing from there, then will forever change our relationship with food.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Aeryon Ashlie our use of innovative technology and QR codes so each product has a full program.  We are the only 100% women owned women focused Canadian brand

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Aeryon Ashlie 09:13

It's the first one is the thoughts you think, okay. And the reason I say that is you can take all the ashwagandha in the world, but if you are in a fear based negative state of mind, and if that story or racket or whatever you want to call it in your head is a constant negative narrative, you're not going to be motivated to work out, you're not gonna be motivated to take care of body to eat well.

Aeryon Ashlie

But if you're really trying to have a goal of health and wellness, then surrounding yourself with people who are also on that same journey is really important as well.

Aeryon Ashlie

Really ensuring that you're having great food. And I think living by the 80-20 rule has enabled that for me, really, you know, 80% of time, I eat really great food. And on weekends. If I want licorice, and I want a glass of wine and I want to go with my friends and have a great meal I let myself do that.

ABOUT AERYON ASHLIE:

Since I was a young girl, my weight and size were something I was aware of teased relentlessly and ostracized from my peers, food became my comfort. Food never made fun of me or excluded me. Then as a young teen, I experienced heavy, painful periods, acne, weight gain and mood swings. Like many young girls my age, I was put on the birth control pill. Around that time, I fell into the trap of obsessive dieting and exercise, which led to my 20-year battle with the eating disorder Bulimia. I believed if I could just be smaller and fit like the girls in the magazines, I would finally find contentment.

A further psychological impact, was a result of my choice, to enter fitness competitions for over 13-years. That, and continued use of the IUD, resulted in hormonal imbalance and cycles of severe weight gain and loss.

In an “Ah-ha” moment 9 years ago, I finally took action to change my behaviours, patterns, and life. However, even as I took all the necessary steps to heal my relationship with food and my body, I was still having physical side effects from my years of continuous dieting, synthetic hormones, and high stress.

My body had stopped responding, I was gaining weight, suffering from exhaustion, insomnia, a non-existent sex drive, cravings, and mild depression. My whole body felt like it had turned on me.

So I started working on my nutrition, natural support supplements, daily movement, stress management, and sleep habits. Over time, I was able to finally find balance. As someone who has experienced the frustration of extreme hormonal imbalance, I knew that I wanted to help others who felt the same hopelessness. As a trainer and a coach, I was able to work with clients one-on-one, and address their needs through nutrition, movement, stress management, and sleep.

Core purpose/passion: Changing women’s lives…

Highlights from today's episode include:

Kerry Madgwick

We heal holistically. We don't just heal a physical part or a mental part. We have to heal everything. So, it's our environment, our relationships. It's the relationship we have with the food we eat with the thoughts we think.

 

Kerry Madgwick

I think that's the thing is once people learn to love themselves for themselves, then that also changes their relationship with food and then automatically then start eating better. And then has that knock on effect as well.

 

Kerry Madgwick

But I think that is the thing is, I think, for people to understand that there is always hope, there is always a way to heal, it's just finding the right way for you and the right person, for you to work with, to help you achieve your goals and what you're looking for.

Kerri Hummingbird

Okay, so we're in a global human initiation, so how can you discern what's true, and what's not true? And the answer is, the answers are inside your body. So that's why I said, becoming one with Mother Earth, for the survival of humanity, because your body is made of earth, that nobody can dispute.

Kerri Hummingbird

when I started taking that perspective, that the earth is conscious, and is interacting with us all the time through our bodies, I started listening to my body in a different way. Like when my stomach gets upset, I stop and go, what are you trying to tell me? What's going on? What am I doing?

Kerri Hummingbird

if you're connected with the planet, you're just connected, just like all the mycelial network and all the mushrooms are connected, and the trees are connected, they communicate through mycelium networks, and science has shown this and proven it. So therefore, we're also connected with everything to, and we're not separate.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Tanya Baldwin

So, you know that you experienced trauma, but I really felt that I was managing it really well because according to society standards, you know, I was successful, I had children, I had a partner, so I didn't really see that I was traumatized.

Tanya Baldwin

then I also started on a holistic path. Radically changed my life, I stopped watching TV, I did a negativity talks, I changed my diet, I started exercising more, I started meditating, and I became absolutely obsessed with the now. And through those practices, I actually healed everything. So, years later now I've been cleared of MS.

Tanya Baldwin

So, you're stuck in constipation while you're in fight or flight, and then we would go into depression. And a lot of times what would happen is, then your body's just doing a dump. It's just letting it go. It's just releasing. So, I don’t have IBS, just trauma that I need to heal. And when I heal through my trauma, well, wow, now that's all healed, too.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Cynthia Brace Whole Health and Lifestyle Coach

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Cynthia Brace 13:03

Let's be honest, diets are hard. They are not fun. You have to suffer through them, and you feel deprived. And the challenge with a diet though is you have a start date and an end date. And most people will do everything to whatever degree they can in between that timeframe. The problem with that is it ends.

 

Cynthia Brace

Focusing on lifestyle is how you do that. And it can tweak, you can change, you can change, like, you know, you have certain goals, and they'll change throughout your life. So, you just tweak what you're doing. That's why focusing on lifestyle is so much easier. In the long run

 

Cynthia Brace

So yeah, it's again, awareness of your thoughts in your belief how you're talking to yourself. Because a lot of modern people are like, super mean to themselves when they talk about. So, it's more of those internal thoughts and realizing what they're saying, because if you said those things to your best friend, you wouldn't be best friends anymore.

 

ABOUT CYNTHIA BRACE:

Cynthia Brace is a whole health and lifestyle coach for motivated people. Through her share of frustrating health challenges, she became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and author of Redesign Your Interior | 8 Steps to Reclaiming Your Health and Creating a Balanced Life.

She believes that focusing on your lifestyle is your hidden superpower to be healthier and happier, no diet required. When you have help and a clear path, getting and staying healthy can be an exciting and fun journey.

She works with clients 1 on 1 and through other offerings. When she’s not transforming lifestyles, she’s got her nose stuck in a book reading, out on a hike, or learning Spanish.

Core purpose/passion: I’m passionate about my clients and helping them be the best they can be.  I love it when they have these huge ah-ha moments and are so ecstatic to see their life and health change.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Jonathan Damonte about his homeopathy course online.

 

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/jonathan-damonte2      

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Jonathan Damonte

what we gain from learning about the fact that remedies have different or opposite symptoms, is that they can have different grades in those symptoms. And so, the grade is a four out of possible five, for thirst. And yet, in the opposite symptom, it's a lower grade only, or one. So, the argument is much stronger for this remedy, because it has a higher grade.

 

Jonathan Damonte 16:01

So, we have all these different aspects of the symptoms. And these are all excellent and reliable symptoms. In fact, the highlighted ones are especially reliable. So, it makes your job in terms of determining what is the useful symptom for prescribing so simple.

 

Jonathan Damonte

Well, I mean, if I was a massage therapist, or chiropractor, or cranial sacral practitioner, I absolutely want to add homeopathy, because as you say, that emotional component that we are stuck in, physiologically is so easily worked through when you add homeopathy.

 

ABOUT JONATHAN DAMONTE:

Firstly, a Homeopath and then a Bowen Therapist, two modalities of alternative medicine. I have been in practice sine 1997 first as Classical Homeopath and from 2001 as a Bowen Therapist as well.
Born in London, England where he lived before moving to Toronto, Canada at the age of 18. Jonathan’s father, John Damonte was a Homeopath and respected teacher based in London. He taught many Homeopaths from 1962 till his death in 1975. Several of his students established schools of Homeopathy and he along wth Thomas Maugham founded the Royal Society of Homeopaths in the UK. Raymond Edge, a graduate of Misha Norland’s School of Devon, opened The School of Homeopathic Medicine in Toronto Canada in 1995. He became my teacher in turn, this was a wonderful connection to my father and his teachings. I’d known Misha while he studied with my father and I was always very fond of him as a child so the re-connection was quite wonderful.

Core purpose/passion: Health is all about freedom and in that context we must create the space for an individual to do so. Whether it's in the freeing of their patterns or in the freedom to choose a style of medicine.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Dr. Robb Kelly, PhD

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/Dr-Robb-Kelly 

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

So, everything is going good. We got the wife back, just got in a great job, amazing, fantastic and then we self-sabotage…alcoholics and addicts for what they can see as no reason. Well, the reason is childhood trauma, and it's still stored, because we've got to deal with it.

that's what we do with trauma, it becomes our comfort zone, it becomes our buffer, even though I know it's painful, and it's going to be horrible. It becomes the only thing that I know, in times of trouble. So, the idea is, is to address that, to smash that box and make sure you can't get back in.

But right now, it's people often ask me, you know, what's the answer? And the answer is dialogue and education are relative because people don't understand that alcoholism is a disease, so is drug addiction and that it's a predisposition, we don't have a choice over this. So when we take our first drink, it sets up that cycle internally.

 

ABOUT DR. ROBB KELLY, PhD:

Dr. Robb Kelly, PhD is a sought-after recovery expert who believes in treating the causes of addiction and not the symptoms. Dr. Kelly has appeared on such shows as The Doctors, Eye Opener, Good Morning Texas, and Kens5 morning news.  A frequent contributor to radio and print interviews including The Jim Bohannon show, Miracles in Recovery, USA Today, and participated in McLean Hospital’s & Harvard Medical School; study on the stigma associated with mental illness. Dr. Kelly hosted Sober Celebs show on KLIF radio in Dallas, and currently hosts the Breaking Through Addiction podcast featuring special guest discussing a variety of mental health issues.

Dr. Kelly created Let’s Get Back to 98% Recovery DVDs used in prisons and recovery treatment centers throughout the US. He has lectured on addiction and trauma at high-profile universities, national conferences, treatment facilities, public schools, churches, business organizations and hospitals. Dr Kelly is currently the CEO of the Robb Kelly Recovery Group, an addiction and mental illness recovery coaching company he created based on extensive research and behaviour studies that he conducted over the past 20 years. Dr. Kelly shares his personal highs and lows as he struggled and overcame crippling alcoholism in the November 2019 release of the book “Daddy, Daddy Please Stop Drinking”. 

Core purpose/passion: Everyone has a million-dollar mindset- sometimes people need help to get to that mindset. I'm here to help them on their journey.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Jonathan Damonte about homeopathy

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Jonathan Damonte

A disease is a label for the set of symptoms, the characteristic symptoms of an illness. Whereas for homeopath, a symptom is the expression of the individual's effort to maintain their health, and therefore, it's the expression of their disease, not the disease they have.

 

Jonathan Damonte 16:01

So, I just want to really say, is that homeopathy is a system of medicine, that buoys…that lifts your own vital healing ability. And therefore, the full resolution is still at play, rather than taking part of your symptom away, so that you just manage to get through but really healing. And what a wonderful way to support an immune system than to guide it rather than overloaded with super nutrients and nutraceuticals and such.

 

Jonathan Damonte

that became a compendium of symptoms that we would use in which to match the disease person who has those symptoms with a medicine that could produce those symptoms. Homeopathy meaning, similar suffering. So, the substance that can produce the problem is used to treat the problems.

Firstly, a Homeopath and then a Bowen Therapist, two modalities of alternative medicine. I have been in practice sine 1997 first as Classical Homeopath and from 2001 as a Bowen Therapist as well.

Holly Howe if you're having gut issues, generally, you want to start slow. Even sometimes people will start with just the brine.

And it's really, we don't need all that it's a condiment, we want to look more for a variety of different fermented foods versus downing the jar sauerkraut in one day.

 

Holly Howe you know, your doctors there for consulting, but you're the one that's coming in with what you need and asking for the help. And you have a lot of power.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Janey Lee Grace  

So, I'd wake up at 3am, and, a voice would be saying to me, what are you doing? Stop it, this has to stop. This is not who you are, this is not authentic with anything you're meant to do. It's not okay. And it would be so clear and so strong that voice. 

Janey Lee Grace  

I used to justify myself well yeah, but the wine I have its good quality wine. It's organic wine. I mean I'm sorry but it's actually BS it really is. It’s all just toxic liquid is what it is. That's that that's the reality of it.

Janey Lee Grace  

Well, number one, I'd always say do a minimum 30 days of not drinking at all first, then you can just reset everything. But number two, the top tips would be set your own parameters around when you are going to drink then so is it, I don't know, Wednesdays and Saturdays or whatever it is for you. Set your own parameters, but then add in another rule. And that rule is that you commit to never drinking, if you are upset, or fearful or angry or stressed.

Highlights from today's episode include: 

 

Lisa Sack  always I think what we have to try to do as healers is to it's not it's it's what it's, I have a to teach us that we all have the wisdom within us to heal. It's just that sometimes we forget it. So we can help somebody remember and tap into that wisdom.

 

Manon Bolliger  12:45

is working with the healing force, but you have to exactly. Remind yourself that it's there.

 

Lisa Sack  I'm seeing it right in front of me, is the connection in that person's body with this fear, this emotion that has inhabited them, this idea that has taken hold, and watching them release that

 

 

 

 

ABOUT LISA SACK:

 

Lisa Sack, C-IAYT

E-RYT 500, Certified Yoga Therapist and Viniyoga™ Therapist, Āyurvedic Health Counselor, Student-in-Training of Hanna Somatic Education®, Certified Clinical Somatics Exercise Instructor


 I was born and raised in NYC and currently live in Brooklyn with my partner of 30 years, our dog and 2 cats. We have 2 children in their mid-twenties, one of whom just graduated from college and is living at home. I had a very peripatetic life before coming to the healing arts–I studied Comparative Literature at Princeton, then studied in England, where I became a Licensiate of the Royal Academy of Music, I worked in theater and production management until my early 30s, then went back to graduate school at Columbia University for an MFA in creative writing. I married at 34 and was a geriatric mom–had my kids at 38 and 40, so my mid-40s were the time of juggling job, at that time, working for a medical marketing firm and parenting. Various factors brought me to my current profession as described below.
 
Core purpose/passion: What am I NOT passionate about, understand that from the Ayurvedic perspective, I have a great deal of fire in me, and fire is ALL about passion. I am passionate about helping others learn to live with ease, grace, and authenticity. I believe that everyone can change, and that everyone has the knowledge within them to find health, well-being, and contentment. All that’s required is to take one small step in the right direction, and then another, and then another. To paraphrase Carl Jung, we are not what’s happened to us We are what we choose to become.

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

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Silva Santé 03:52
When you eat a fresh plant, a weed, what we call weeds is actually one of the most beneficial things that we can consume. They're not there just for weed killer. In fact, don't put weed killer on them, save them.

Silva Santé
If you are taking in some kind of herbs, keep fresh basil around all the time. That is actually adaptogenic herb. So, an adaptogenic is a plant that will go and find what's not balanced in your body and balance it for you. It's not complicated.

Silva Santé 16:14

Sage is excellent as well, but I would mostly suggest it for women who are menopausing, it does lower your body temperature. So, you might not want to take it if you have if you're already like chilly if you have a problem with being more cold and then I wouldn't use sage but I suggest sage all the time for my clients who are menopausal because it really does help with the hot flashes.

 

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.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Sylvie Beljanski about nonprofit, whose working towards curing cancer the natural way

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Sylvie Beljanski 14:49

I think we have to be relentless. We have to keep speaking. Keep publishing, keep being there for all the people who want to learn about their own health and take it as they want to learn about how to take care of themselves, what is available to them naturally.

Sylvie Beljanski

So here we have a natural product which is going to help preserve bone marrow to do its own work without toxicity and therefore it means all the families of white blood cells are going to be created without any imbalance without growth factor and so on.

Sylvie Beljanski

So, when you have something that really really works, it finds its way one way or another. It is at some point recognized and therefore, never give up because it will eventually be recognized by good people with an open mind that will recognize the value of the science and give it a chance.

 

ABOUT SYLVIE BELJANSKI:

Sylvie Beljanski, a French lawyer by trade, is a health advocate for holistic medicine, public speaker, internationally known author and entrepreneur. She is the Founder and Executive Vice President of The Beljanski Foundation, whose mission is to research natural approaches to cancer. She is also the CEO of Maison Beljanski, an international dietary supplement company.

Ms. Beljanski is the award winning author of "Winning The War On Cancer: The Epic Journey Towards a Natural Cure". This book has helped propel Ms. Beljanski to be a sought-after speaker at health and wellness conferences globally, where she has educated thousands of people about scientific breakthroughs in the field of integrative medicine.


Core purpose/passion: The Beljanski Foundation’s mission is to sponsor research programs with various natural extracts recognized by Dr. Mirko Beljanski for their anticancer properties. Research has entailed programs on prostate cancer at Columbia University, including advanced prostate cancer that no longer responds to chemotherapy, as well as ovarian and pancreatic cancers at Kansas University Medical Center. All of these studies were completed using the same botanical extracts. They have been reported to be effective on both males and females and have also exhibited great synergy with a variety of chemotherapies. Research studies have proven that these same extracts are also effective against cancer stem cells, those cells deemed to be responsible for cancer relapse and metastasis. Passionate does not do justice for how driven I am to share the message about the effects and possibility for the extracts to save people’s lives. Cancer researchers are all pursuing different goals. Some want to have something approved by the FDA, some want to milk an old patent into a new one and provide a new life to an old, ineffective molecule, and some simply want to cure people. All of these goals are very different and it is difficult to imagine that they could work together. However, since a number of prestigious universities have published their results with several Beljanski extracts, I have seen increased interest from researchers at other institutions and I would love to see The Beljanski Foundation establish new partnerships across the board. There is still so much research to be done.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Lucinda Sykes about, your center, inner knowing, intuition, and higher self are found when you connect to your body and get out of your head.

Highlights from today's episode include:

 

Vicki Roubekas 05:45

What I say about spirituality, and of course, so yes, it's separate, completely separate from religion. And to me, it's a philosophy it is, what is it for you? What is the philosophy for you? What is your own identity, definition of what you see spirituality for you? So that person has to identify it for themselves.

Vicki Roubekas

So, we're all connected energetically, we're all connected to the whole, not just to each other, but to the planet to the universe. And as a result, that means that you are tapping into this consciousness that is of the whole of the collective, and also tapping into a knowing an internal knowing that is a resonant to that whether that's your soul, your Higher Self, your internal state, your internal knowing.

Vicki Roubekas

as a result, spirituality becomes the seeking of the connection for you of what is physically, mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, right for you, personally

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Lucinda Sykes about in these unstable times, society needs the full participation of Women 50+, and women need their best sleep!

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Lucinda Sykes

We're not trying to change our experience. We're not trying to have a better experience, we are simply witnessing the experience without judging, and that is mindfulness. And oddly, some would say we are born into mindfulness, although it's not something that children do on purpose.

 

Lucinda Sykes

So, consciousness, mindfulness has an agency to it. And we bring mindfulness to our sleepless state. And often things transform, just because we're paying attention as well. Mindfulness can be a vehicle or a container, within which we can pop in and affirmation. Or we can pop in a mantra. Or we can do some mindful stretching, some breath, work and so on. And all contained within, within mindfulness.

 

Lucinda Sykes

It's often what's really disturbing us, in our sleeplessness is not the sleepless state ourselves itself, but rather the story we are making about the sleepless.

 

ABOUT LUCINDA SYKES:

Graduated medicine at University of Toronto 1997, then to family practice with a special focus on psychotherapy. In 1997, I established Meditation for Health clinic in Toronto. We taught medical programs of mindfulness to more than 6000 patients until COVID forced us to end in-person teaching in 2020. I retired from licensed medical practice this year, and I've begun a new direction as a sleep coach for Women 50+. I continue the & Joyful After 50; online outreach of Meditation for Health, with a blog and regular newsletter.   https://www.joyfulafter50.com/blog

Core purpose/passion: I find renewed purpose and mission in supporting the wellbeing of Women 50+ — alerting them to the risks of habitual sleep deprivation and sleeping pill dependence. Women have not been well-served by conventional medicine. In particular, they've been poorly informed about sleep self-care, and they've been put at serious risk with medicine's promotion of sleep medication.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Sandie Gascon a Certified Integrative Healing Practitioner.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Sandie Gascon 03:46

Epigenetics is everything, we can definitely turn off, turn on and off genes to with our environment with the amount of stress we're going through. But what I found with people who have health issues, a lot of those genes are turned on. So, when we run our genetics, and we see different mutations, then we can really develop a plan with supplements.

 

Sandie Gascon 11:33

So, if you think about it, it can take a long time to heal your gut. A long time some people can take them one to two years to do work for the first time. Why would we not balance the brain right away if we're able to? Right. I can do it very, very quickly, and then the person will feel so much better. And if you do it the other way, it's very hard to heal the gut if your brain isn't balanced.

 

Sandie Gascon 14:59

So, can we detox heavy metals? Yes. Can we support the body and help it turn off autoimmune responses? Yes. Are we going to be able to fix everything that's happened? No, I don't think so. But we can definitely give the body a fighting chance as much as possible.  

 

ABOUT SANDIE GASCON

After suffering severe side effects from medications during her twenty-year battle with chronic migraines, when she was diagnosed with Lupus she committed herself to healing naturally. Through her experiences, she developed a whole body, mind, and spirit approach that addresses the person in a truly holistic manner. She takes the guess work out of the equation by running functional lab work to see what the body needs. She healed herself of migraines, depression, lupus, interstitial cystitis, and cystic acne. Her purpose is to help educate others on the importance of shifting focus to rebuilding and rebalancing the body and removing internal and external stress so the body can heal itself.

Sandie lives in Ontario, Canada, for the summer and spends the winters in central Florida with her husband Eric and son Kaiden. She has a passion for riding horses and spends much of her free time at the barn with her horses Bee, Jack and Vala. She loves playing with Kaiden, spending time with family and friends and hiking with her dogs.

Core purpose/passion: My core purpose and mission is to help educate others on the importance of shifting focus to rebuilding and rebalancing the body and removing internal and external stress so the body can heal itself.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Dr. Laura M. Brown, ND about your physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual well-being are all involved when healing.

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/dr-laura-m-brown-nd

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr Laura M. Brown ND 

Yes, digestion I mean, we need rest and digest. If we're always in fight or flight, or freeze, right, we're not digesting. So, and I argue that we not only have to digest our food, we have to digest the world around us.

 

Dr Laura M. Brown ND  11:46

It's so true. I mean, our digestion doesn't start when the food hits our stomach, it starts literally when thinking about it, what are we going to eat for dinner tonight, and then shopping for it, and then preparing it and cooking it and enjoying it, and just appreciating the textures and the colors and the aromas.

 

Dr Laura M. Brown ND 

Nobody has the digestive enzymes to break down gluten. That's a fact. You know, it's a grain that is a fiber that we take in and it bypasses and goes down into the large intestine where it's fermented. And that's why it's such a good prebiotic, it's fermented and helps feed, but on the way down for those of us who are sensitive, it can damage the areas in the tracks and in the ducts up into the by the gallbladder and the pancreas kind of those areas there in the liver. And then it can also damage the small intestine as we know the villi in the small intestine.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Jessica Mosiuk, about that chronically ill people sometimes need permission to let go of their illness/untangle their identity from their illness before they can heal.

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

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Jessica Mosiuk

It's when bacteria migrate to the small intestine, where they shouldn't be in large amounts. And so, when you eat food, they start to ferment your food. And that's why you get that extreme bloating. So, I really had to work on reducing the number of not-so-great bacteria in my small bowel, and then retraining my gut, my microbiome to tolerate those higher FODMAP foods again

 

Jessica Mosiuk

I did start to identify with my illness at the time. It became part of my identity. And as I separated myself from that and started to flip the script in my mind that I was telling myself, I really saw a big shift in where things were going.

 

Jessica Mosiuk 37:01

Yeah, there's no one right way to go gut health and fixing your IBS. So, if something isn't sitting right with you, voice that. Pay attention and keep in mind that it's your own journey. You don't need to be following what other people are doing.

ABOUT JESSICA:

As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Jessica has helped hundreds of people break free from the pain and discomfort of irritable bowel syndrome by making simple, sustainable nutrition and lifestyle changes. As someone who suffered from chronic digestive issues for years, Jessica is no stranger to the feelings of frustration and confusion that accompany functional bowel disorders. That's why working with her is more than just a meal plan: she will support, encourage and guide you back to optimal health with kindness and compassion.

Core purpose/passion: I am very passionate about simplifying the healing process for IBS sufferers because there is so much misleading information out there and it's too easy to fall into a trap of spending endless money on supplements and jumping from elimination diet to elimination diet.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) with Elizabeth Yarnell who I has a virtual clinic where I help MS and other autoimmune sufferers heal through personalized anti-inflammatory diets and other natural protocols

Highlights from today's episode include:

Elizabeth Yarnell

one night in 1999, I went to sleep as usual. And I woke the next morning, blind in my right eye. And it was really disorienting and scary I couldn't read. I couldn't write I couldn't. 

 

Elizabeth Yarnell

this is the title of my upcoming book; auto immunity is an oxymoron. Looking for triggers in all the wrong places.

 

Elizabeth Yarnell

they tested the cord blood in brand new newborn babies, and they found more than 200 chemicals in the core blood, just the moment of birth, coming out into this world already contaminated.

 

About Elizabeth Yarnell:

Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, Elizabeth Yarnell has been on a mission to redefine MS and autoimmunity naturally as a traditional naturopath and Certified LEAP Therapist. She has worked with hundreds of MS and other autoimmune sufferers in her nationwide clinic using unique, personalized non-pharmaceutical therapies to empower them to reclaim their health.  She’s a TEDx speaker, award-winning author whose cookbook has sold more than 70,000 copies, a patented inventor, and has been featured on CBS, NBC, ABC, and PBS as well as in Good Housekeeping, Health, Martha Stewart Living Radio, and many other outlets.
