Adventures In Health

HealthQuest Radio is proud to present an exclusive excerpt from a new book to be published next month.  Author, Dr. Lon Jones, is a pioneer and inventor of xylitol based nasal spray. We are excited to be the first in the Chicagoland area to present a “sneak preview” of this book titled:  

“No More Allergies, Asthma, or Sinus Problems…the Revolutionary Approach to Eliminating Upper Respiratory Infections Without Drugs”

“How a simple nasal cleansing program with only one rule has helped tens of thousands of adults and children eliminate their allergies, asthma, sinus problems, hay fever, middle ear infections, colds, flu and other respiratory conditions without the need for drugs.”

“Keeping the nose clean is important because essentially all respiratory illnesses have a beginning there. All of these connected areas involved with allergies, asthma, sinus infections, even cold and flu, commonly get infected from viruses and bacteria living in the back of the nose.  Honoring and supporting our nasal defenses in their attempts to wash out these irritants means that these problems will not be there because the irritants and infecting agents which cause them will not be there. That’s our argument in a nutshell.  In the following we will show what our defenses are, how they are hobbled, and how we can help them work better.  And making them work better can keep us free of upper respiratory problems, infections included.”

“After the FDA suggested that xylitol would be better classified as a drug because of its ability to stop ear and sinus infections and help with allergies and asthma, I began talking to drug companies to see if there was any interest in them jumping through regulatory hoops and marketing this spray.  Intitially there was, but it evaporated when they learned that the active ingredient, xylitol, was generally available and could not be protected by patent.  The patent I got was a ‘use’ patent, meaning that no one could market the nasal use of xylitol. 

Drug companies want a patent either on the active ingredient, the drug itself, or on the medical device that delivers it.  There are also other ways of defining drugs, like if they are taken internally.  This is the problem we share with oral rehydration; both have sufficient benefit to be classed as “drugs'” but neither have the ability to reward the drug companies with suffient profits to make that practical.  Again: no patent – no profits: no profits – no research; no-research – and no one knows the benefits.  There is no economical way that a common safe food substance can be a ‘drug’ so this spray is not regulated or approved by the FDA. It is not a drug; it is only a very neat way to wash your nose.  If washing your hands is effective in reducing communicable disease, washing the nose is even more so because that is where so many of them enter the body.”

The question you have is probably the same one I did: How can one simple spray help with so many diverse health issues?  The answer has to do with one rule that I now tell all my patients to follow – and for which I quote my mother and thank her for the title of the next chapter…..”
