+ Baxter Technologies expands at Hargrove Grade
Danny and Mason Baxter have announced the new location and expansion of Baxter Technologies, at 15-A Hargrove Grade in Palm Coast.

The Baxters have been audio/video specialists in Flagler County for more than 10 years. Their new facility will enable them to continue to offer residential and commercial systems and services, in addition to BT Motorsports manufacturing.

The Baxters are set to produce the Quickstand, a new patented enterprise in the world of motocross racing, at a rate of 400 per month.

+ Nature’s Nurse product comes to Flagler Beach
Nature’s Nurse International’s best-selling product, Respigard, a self-care respiratory aid, is now available in Flagler Beach. From Nature’s Nurse’s line of natural wellness products and systems, Respigard has until recently only been available online and at select medical clinics. 

“We have seen the demand for Respigard rise over the years, but recently the growth locally has been rapid, due to the forest fires,” Dr. Ted Anders, co-founder of Nature’s Nurse said. “The smoke from the fires is making it more difficult for those with respiratory illnesses to breathe properly.” Anders also added that Nature’s Nurse donated Respigard to 911 first responders.

Respigard will be sold at the Flagler Beach Center of Natural Medicine, at 214 Moody Blvd., with 40% of the proceeds being donated to Fijians — who introduced a major Respigard ingredient, Fijian Red Mangrove, to Anders — and other outreaches.

Anders will also be available by appointment at the center, for personal and professional life coaching.

Two clinical studies, by asthma/allergy specialist Dr. Scott Carrol show full resolution in 12 to 48 hours of nasal and bronchial symptoms related to the common cold 79% of the time.
