Local health and wellness educator Maureen Minnehan Jones of Oakdale will be having her new book released the same time she will be doing a presentation at the Alzheimer’s International Conference in Toronto, Canada. Her book, “Wisdom To Wellness,” is scheduled to be released March 25, the same weekend she will be in Toronto for the conference.

Jones, a registered nurse and alternative healer who has been featured in prior articles by The Leader, said her book reveals a missing piece to complete healing and a new paradigm for understanding how disease originates in the body.

“We know what our body is trying to tell us,” said Jones.

Jones founded the “MO Technique,” for the Latin Modus Operandi, or method of operation, to teach self-healing and getting in touch with how a person internally operates. Her technique allows a person to interpret what a disease is trying to tell them and then to “release” the disease through a form of guided imagery.

Various forms of release include imaging the affliction out of the body and burning it, putting the disease in the hands of one’s creator, or erasing it from the system.

Jones then teaches her subject to view the message in a positive form and tap into their higher self. Once the disease has been “released,” the patient can view what the body’s message was and instill positive energy into the body. The patient then recites a positive affirmation for 40 days to make the affirmation a habit.

Her book covers 18 common diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, colds, flu, and allergies. Each chapter includes about two client success stories for numerous illnesses and ailments.

Jones relayed a story about a patient she treated who had arthritis. The patient was young, but ready to retire from working due to the joint inflaming condition. Jones said that after one session and the 40-day affirmation, the patient was ready to return to work.

“My program works in tandem with traditional medicine,” Jones said. “The patient can still have a diagnosis by a doctor and learn what the body is trying to tell them.”

In her one or two-hour sessions, Jones teaches from Michael Lincoln’s “Messages From The Body,” which helps decipher what the individual’s body is trying to tell them about the symptom.

Lincoln contributed to Jones’ new book by writing the foreword, which compares Jones to a “master chef” due to her system of healing.

Jones’ presentation at the Toronto Alzheimer’s Conference includes a look at former President Ronald Reagan. She lists a series of injuries and illnesses he had over his lifetime and shows how to learn how his Alzheimer’s disease could have been prevented. Jones describes the emotional component of each disease, understanding “the MO” and learning what each symptom, condition and disease is telling her.

The Medimond Publisher in Bologna, Italy is publishing Jones’ article, “The Missing Piece in Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease” this month as well. Medimond is based in Bologna, Italy, and is known for its medical articles.

‘O’ Books of the United Kingdom published Jones’ book. It is available through major booksellers. Maureen Minnehan Jones can be contacted at (209) 845-8141 or through her website at
