Naomi Judd, famed country music star, has much more to share than just country music. I am writing this article in hopes that you would think outside the box. I want this to draw your attention to this special event.
Naomi Judd will be speaking in the evening session of the Healthy Living & Wellness Expo at the Curris Center at Murray State University, and those who take the privilege to attend the Expo are going to be glad they did. She will be speaking on Healthy Living and Overcoming Obstacles in Life. However, if you think you are just going to hear another celebrity talk about health and healthy living, think again. Her approach and practice to living a healthy lifestyle will enlighten her listeners. Judd has definitely made a name for herself in the Country Music Industry and now, she is using another “platform” of many, in which she communicates…living healthy, and quite honestly, that phrase just touches the tip of the iceberg.
Her career has put her in the “center” of new studies, findings and insights into the human body and the way it works when it comes to our health. Judd says, “I’m going to go ahead and warn you, I may do some ‘name dropping’ and I do that for one reason; it’s so that you know that anything I tell you, I have already seen the placebo-based, double-blind clinical trials.” She chuckles as she says, “I have sat through boring slide shows.” At the time of this interview Judd said she would be spending a week with Dr. Dean Ornish, founder and president of the non-profit Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.
After her week in San Francisco with Dr. Dean Ornish, Judd says, “I will come back with all kinds of new, cutting-edge research to share with you all (the Expo). I will have used it on myself too. The most precious thing to me is trust, and when you come up to me at a car wash or a grocery store or there at Murray State, and tell me your story, about what you’re figuring out, or what issue you are struggling with to just keep your head above water, well, that to me is so beyond winning a Grammy or getting to sing at a Super Bowl half-time. That’s what I call ‘exquisite reality’.” She goes on to say, “In regards to singing, songwriting and performing; the people and doctors I have met, along with my experiences, all of this has given me an unlimited credit card in the department store of life. It’s almost unimaginable!”
In closing, Judd says, “I’m very upset with ‘modern medicine’, with modern ‘healthcare’, because I care about quality, I care about the personal touch in medicine, and I just think that it (the system we are going in to) is going to be one of the worse things that’s ever happened to our country. I hope everyone will come out and see us. I’m encouraging everybody to think differently. You may think you know Naomi Judd, but ‘nah’, I am going to share things that most people don’t know is out there, and it’s my way of ‘paying it forward’”.
Naomi Judd advocates an integrative holistic approach to medicine along with the latest in modern technology and helps to bridge the conversation between academia, medical communities and the everyday person about health and family-related issues whether her audience is the National Institutes of Health or a group of uninsured, single working mothers.
