We had the good fortune of connecting with John Burd and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi John, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
My mantra is to find natural solutions to big healthcare problems. I believe that we can wipe out type 2 diabetes in a decade without any R&D. I want people to remember that I cared about the health of others and worked hard to find products to help them,

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I was the founder and 1st CEO of DexCom, now the leader in continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes, helping over 1 million users around the world. I have been busy with other businesses that I have started since 2017. My new companies offer natural solutions to diabetes and other health problems instead of pharmaceuticals. Let me describe them for you. In 2017, I started a new company, Lysulin, Inc., to further my crusade to help people with Type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, & those at risk of developing diabetes. Our first product, Lysulin, was launched in January 2018 and the clinical testing results have been outstanding.  Two clinical studies have been published showing dramatic improvement in diabetes management and improvement in insulin resistance. Four Patents have issued and two more are pending. Along with lowering blood glucose, Lysulin is targeting a new disease mechanism; protein glycation and the production of AGEs, the cause of insulin resistance and disease complications. The improvement in glycemic control as measured by HbA1c reduction is actually better than most current type 2 drugs! Historically, supplements have had a bad reputation because many of them made unsubstantiated claims in the past. Conversely, Lysulin is firmly grounded on a foundation of 25 years of R&D and clinical studies published in peer reviewed publications proving that the ingredients in Lysulin will lower blood glucose and the production of glycated proteins. Before Lysulin I had not appreciated that glucose in your bloodstream is like a poison. It reacts with all life-giving proteins, adversely affecting how these proteins are intended to work. As these undesirable “Glycated Proteins” increase, A1C levels rise along with the risk of insulin resistance (due to glycation of insulin and insulin receptors) and damage to your heart, blood vessels, kidneys and eyesight. Lysulin acts as a guardian by binding to glucose to form glycated-Lysulin, shielding your proteins from the reaction with glucose. The glycated-Lysulin is then safely removed from the body through your urine. Lysulin provides all natural nutritional support to help people better manage their diabetes. Our companion home test kit for measuring HbA1c (A1cNow) is also available to demonstrate how well Lysulin is working. We now have Lysulin in several forms. The original was a large tablet taken 3 times a day. We had complaints about the tablet size so we came up with an orange flavored chewable tablet which requires 2 tablets per serving, 3 servings a day. We just introduced a better tasting berry flavored tablet. We also have a liquid Lysulin that is 1 teaspoon three times a day. It tastes like a slightly salty sweet lemonade. We recently introduced a Once A Day powder and we will soon have a meal replacement shake that incorporates Lysulin for both weight loss and diabetes management.

Please let me introduce you to a second amazing product – sold as Wonder Spray by a sister company I also founded – an incredible antibiotic sold both Rx and OTC and FDA cleared for wound cleansing to speed wound healing. I initially became interested in Wonder Spray to help people with diabetes speed the healing of wounds on their feet. As it turns out, Wonder Spray has utility for a wide variety of ailments (see attached flyer). Wonder Spray is a dilute solution of HydrOxyChloride (HOCL) (this is my term – other call it hypochlorous acid – it is at pH 6). HOCL was discovered before WWI and was used to treat battlefield wounds. HOCL is all natural and is what our white blood cells use to kill pathogens – all of them – bacteria, virus, yeast, mold, spores, fungus and even prions. HOCL is 100 times more powerful than bleach as a disinfectant, and yet it is entirely safe and non-toxic to human tissue. See our website at www.thewonderspray.com. We are filing patents for a variety of ailments including upper repository ailments (cold, flu, pneumonia and allergies), gingivitis and sepsis. Have a look at this video: https://vimeo.com/339692684 Wonder Spray comes in 2 ounce and 8 ounce spray bottles. We also have a nebulizer that can be used for allergy relief and fighting off cold, sore throat and the flu. Email me at jburd@jburd.com with any questions of comments you may have. If you would like samples of either product, please let me know. I hope that we can work together to bring better health to all of those who need it. We recently initiated a program with Wonder Spray selling foggers for disinfection and deodorizing. The active ingredient in wonder Spray – HOCL – is on the EPA list of products for use against corona virus.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
