Nathan Jones, the CEO of Xlear, global leader in creating natural, convenient, xylitol-based sinus and oral care products that support a healthy lifestyle joins eHealth Radio and the Allergy Information and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Nathan Jones discuss the following:

  1. We heard that your company, Xlear, has been conducting research with The Institute for Antiviral Research at Utah State University about COVID-19. Can you tell us more about the research?
  2. You have started with this research at the beginning of the pandemic. What progress have you made since then?
  3. Although you are an entrepreneur, you come from a medical family and your father is a medical doctor. We learned that he has recently published a book about COVID-19. It’s main premise is that we should wash our noses. Can you elaborate on that?
  4. What trends have you seen in how people approach their health during pandemic?
  5. What do you hope to see happen as we move into Fall?

Nathan was born in Kansas City and he spent his formative years in Idaho, in a small town where his father was the town doctor. Later, in a pursuit to provide needed support for the entire family of 14 kids, Nathan’s parents have made the decision to move to Michigan, Mexico City, where he spent most of his childhood. When he was 16 years old, the family made another move, this time to Utah which is also where Nathan graduated from high school. He attended college for a year, spent a year in active duty, and also went on a two year mission with his church. He moved back home in 1994 and started attending Utah Valley University. Later, he made a transition to Seattle where he attended school to become a commercial diver - he used skills form this education when he worked as a diver in oilfields in Louisiana between 1995 and 2000. Another transition occurred when he moved back to Utah and founded Xlear in 2000 where he has been ever since.

About the BOOK: In Asthma and Allergy Solution that Works for COVID-19: The Powerful Natural Prescription for Respiratory Health During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Dr. Lon Jones, D.O., a Texas-based family medicine physician who pioneered the nasal uses of the healthy sugar xylitol, explains that simple methods of self-protection that go beyond face masks, including washing your nose as regularly as you do your hands, could result in significantly reduced risk of infection. Based on the latest studies and his own clinical experience, Dr. Jones teaches us how supporting our nasal defenses can eliminate coronavirus when its viral load is lightest and the virus is still located in the upper respiratory tissues before it has spread to the lungs.

Steam Cleaning and Your Health

Steam Cleaning and Your Health

November 16, 2018

 

Robert_moeller.jpg

 

Robert Moeller the Director of Sales of Anvid Products joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel. Through the company's flagship brand, Sienna, Anvid designs and manufactures a wide range of high-quality steam appliances for floor care, all purpose cleaning, and garment care.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Robert Moeller discuss the following:

  1. Why is steam cleaning the most effective cleaning method available?
  2. What are the types of surfaces that can be cleaned by steam?  Are there any limitations?
  3. Obviously, people with allergies would benefit from the sanitizing and germ-cleaning power of steam.  But what other types of medical conditions can steam cleaning help improve?
  4. Talk about how important hand hygiene is to a medical professional, especially to one who wears jewelry, and how the sanitization of their jewelry is so critical. 
  5. How much does steam temperature play into the germ-killing power of a steam cleaner?  Can it be too hot?  What is the ideal temperature? 
  6. There are a lot of different steam cleaners out there.  What are the most important features to look for?

SUMMARY: There's no question that a clean house goes a long way towards maintaining your family's health.  It is also a critical aspect of managing certain medical conditions, such as allergies or autoimmune diseases, where even a few germs can trigger severe reactions.  But "clean" is not enough.  For maximum protection against harmful germs and bacteria, nothing beats the power of steam.  And since most surfaces can be cleaned with steam - including bedding, couches, countertops, jewelry, even your baby's pacifiers - there's no reason to let germs invade your home or your health.


Robert Moeller has over 20 years’ of diverse consumer and electronic experiences working with all major retailers from coast to coast. He has a proven track record of leading sales, marketing, merchandising and distribution for large publicly traded and small privately held companies. Before joining Anvid Products, he served as Director of Sales and Business Development for Tassone Enterprises, where he managed and directed a national sales organization for multiple brands. He was also National Sales Manager at The Homedics Group, a Michigan-based firm offering a full line of in-home wellness products designed to promote well-being.
