This week Dr. Elvira will speak with Dr. Manon Bolliger, the founder of Bowen college, director of Cornerstone Health Centre and author of What Patients Don’t Say if Doctors Don’t Ask – The Mindful Patient-Doctor Relationship. They will talk about many things including the rapid changes occurring in health care today, the importance of providing quality health care, what is meant my quality health care, and how it can be accomplished.
Dr. Bolliger has treated thousands of patients in Canada over the past two decades; from rural farmers in Nova Scotia to corporate stressed out CEOs in Toronto, to Tri-Athletes in British Columbia. This diversified experience, not only in the range of required skills in health care and in pain relief, but also the differing mindsets that people have towards their bodies, has helped her identify the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and being able to truly listen and respond from the place where people are coming from.
Her Cornerstone Health Centre accommodates a full team of experts. The Centre has programs for patients that include pain relief, aging with grace (anti-aging) and holistic and preventative family health care. Her passion for healing from the inside out has led her to specialize in homeopathy and the Bowen Technique. Throughout her personal and academic journey, she was led by her desire to understand what makes people change, grow, heal and celebrate life.
She has a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, is a Certified Advance Bowen practitioner, and Studied under a wide variety of homeopaths at the New England School of Homeopathy, the Dynamis School of Homeopathy with Jeremy Sherr, the Bombay School and with Massimo Mangiolavori.
Join me as I interview Dr. David Lewis as he shares his life experience in the health care system as a Family Doctor, Patient and Caregiver.
David Lewis FRCSEd, MRCGP David Lewis is a family doctor in United Kingdom. David completed medical training at Monash University and Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Postgraduate training in United Kingdom in general surgery then family medicine followed. In 1990, David was diagnosed with advanced Hodgkins Lymphoma. This was the same year his father died from lung cancer, and he married Danielle. Danielle was pregnant with their first child at the time of diagnosis. Anxious to have further children, David delayed essential treatment for the lymphoma to store sperm. This action has been vindicated because twins were born in 1994 with help of IVF; the children are among first 5000 IVF babies in UK. In 2007, David suffered a heart attack requiring emergency intervention, followed by quadruple bypass surgery. The heart surgery was successful, but a complication developed requiring further surgery in January 2008. Sadly, this operation was complicated by respiratory arrest and subsequent 5 weeks on a ventilator. Today, David works full time in National Health Service General Practice with three Partners. The practice also serves as a site for the University College London Medical School “Medicine in Community” program. The practice is in a suburban area and looks after over 6,600 people from cradle to grave. In the last couple of years David has developed an interest in promoting the use of information technology for professional development and peer support

Unfortunately, her boyfriend died just one year after his diagnosis, at the age of 39.
Half a year after his death she began a patient support group in Berlin. A few months later she became the manager of Kidney Cancer at Das Lebenshaus.
