Stowell, age 56, to its Board of Advisors. Mr. Stowell is a senior marketing leader with deep business management expertise at both large and entrepreneurial firms. His resume includes over 25 years of brand building marketing experience from notable companies including Coca-Cola, Mitsubishi Electric Heating and Cooling, as well as Zep Cleaning Solutions.
“True Nature is committed to fully addressing the ‘direct to consumer’ movement in healthcare through technology offerings. The business solutions we are developing will assist healthcare professionals to establish longer-term relationships, better share information, and enable patients to better take control of their quality of life. Having a subject matter expert like John as an advisor to the management team helps us maximize shareholder value,” noted True Nature’s President Jim Crone.

We can use the same approach that a leader like Coke would, and greater enhance the relationship and accelerate the growth of the providers, all while causing the consumer to embrace the control of his own lifestyle, and living quality.

The Mission of True Nature Holding, Inc.
To leverage new technologies and services to improve healthcare and outcome for individuals, their families, and their pets. We believe we can reduce the cost of healthcare while improving the quality of life using Telehealth and Telemedicine Solutions.
We are building healthcare applications that focus on patient engagement, care coordination, remote monitoring, data analytics, and may include Blockchain RX(TM) to provide applications for market participants in healthcare through the encryption of sensitive data.
Our approach is to develop these business opportunities as individual “threads” in response to client needs, ultimately creating an end-to-end set of solutions from the end user up to the healthcare provider, or veterinary professional. Further, we expect to assist suppliers to the healthcare industry by allowing them to access unique technologies that bind them with their clients in a “top-down” distribution model.
We recognize it will take the investment of major market participants like Apple, Amazon, IBM, hospitals, healthcare networks, pharmacy and other providers for us to achieve critical mass. In consideration of this reality, we expect to work with these market makers in collaboration, and in support of the ultimate user, the individual, and their pets. The day of “direct-to-consumer” healthcare, including “the humanization of our pets” is upon us, and we hope to be key parties to their evolution, and success.
