Guest: Dr. Joanne M. Conaway, LTC USAF Ret., Nurse, Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy

Dr. Joanne M. Conaway, LTC, USAF Ret. doesn’t like it when people refer to what she does as ‘new’. The Air Force veteran, former nurse and Doctor of Traditional Naturopahy is quick to point out that the path she has followed for the last 19 years has been around and healed people for thousands of years. “I laugh when people say that what I’m doing is new,” said Conaway, who appeared as a guest on Sharon Kleyne’s nationally syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Conaway, author of the intriguing book, Why Is America So Sick?, believes that we have created a pharmaceutical culture that is interested in profits made from treating symptoms rather than finding cures and getting people well. “It’s all about ‘feel good now’, not get well,” said Conaway.

Kleyne, her host, commiserated, saying “Emotionally, the world is not disciplined. Consider infrastructure,” Kleyne continued. “Water should always be first, but our leaders around the world have yet to propose an infrastructure overhaul that puts water first.” Conaway agreed that emotions drive certain behaviors. She pointed out that Americans, for instance, love instant gratification. That’s why they eat too many carbs, sugars and processed foods.

“When a person isn’t functioning well,” Kleyne added, “he craves sugar and that can lead to a craving for drugs.”

“It has all led to the demise of health,” said Conaway, and that’s why she retired from nursing. “In the last 19 years,” Conaway said, I’ve helped many more people get well than I helped in my 40 years as a nurse.”

Conaway focuses on the gut and diet with her clients and patients. “Bacteria imbalance in the gut makes us unhealthy,” Conaway said. In her book, Conaway reveals 90 essential nutrients that the healthy human body needs. “There are more than 900 diseases linked to the lack of nutrients,” Conaway said. In addition to drinking lot of water, Conaway recommends eating lots of organic leafy green vegetables, some organic fruit (in moderation because fruit contains sugar) grass-fed beef, free-range chicken (not fed on grain!) and organic squash. Dr. Conaway also believes in supplementing this diet with essential oils and flower essences.

Kleyne expressed the hope that Conaway’s next book (because Conaway is a combat veteran) would be about teaching American soldiers how to be healthier, survive and react more efficiently. “I think of Tom Brady,” said Kleyne, referring to the quarterback of the NFL’s New England Patriots. “In the great Super Bowl comeback,” said Kleyne, “Brady showed discipline, focus and no emotion. Our soldiers would do well to embrace that model.”

“Yes,” said Conaway. “They need to drink more water and eat better foods, too, because an unhealthy gut negatively affects the brain.”

“That’s true,” said Kleyne. “Remember the timeless quote sometimes attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte or Frederick the Great but most likely originating with Claudius Galen, chief physician to the Roam army: “An army marches on its stomach.”
