Meet Dr. Howard
Dr. Douglas Howard is an American physician, medical researcher, and international lecturer. He specializes in phytonutrition and its application in daily living. Since his youth, Dr. Howard has been driven with a passion to save and improve lives. At the early age of 14 he began working at Pioneer Memorial Medical Center in St. George, Utah. At the age of 15 he was employed at the Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas in nuclear medicine. At the age of 16 he was a full-time employee working as an emergency room technician at Dixie Regional Medical Center. Avid in the pursuit of a medical career, he was even given a special waiver by the governor to receive his EMT-certification before the age of 18. That was just the beginning.
Throughout his life and studies, Dr. Howard developed an intense interest in lifestyle diseases and the immune system response. His pursuit for knowledge has been never ending. He studied Homeopathy in Germany, Chiropractic in the United States, and Medicine in Russia. While in Russia he studied at both St. Petersburg Pediatric Medical Institute (now Saint Petersburg State Pediatric Medical Academy) and at the Pavlov First Medical Institute (also known as Saint Petersburg State Medical University). In addition, internationally he has worked on clinical studies in Finland. His broad and extensive experiences give him a unique whole mind & body perspective on health.
In more recent years Dr. Howard has turned much of his time and efforts to research in hope of discovering the key to enhancing proper immune system function. Because of his unique background and expertise, Dr. Howard is requested to lecture throughout the world. Today, we are able to benefit from his research through the development of Balance of Nature supplements.

Development of Fruits and Veggies®
Upon Dr. Howard’s return from Russia, his interest in nutrition had peaked. At first he joined the movement in search of that one mysterious, magical phytochemical. The one that would cure all that ails you. That was a roller coaster ride because more and more were being discovered each day. It was a time when research on phytochemicals was just beginning and super fruits and super pills were jumping at you from all sides. Finally, Dr. Howard realized the insanity. There are 100’s of thousands of phytochemicals, some discovered and others yet to be discovered. This realization, coupled with his experience in Russia brought him to the epiphany that all of the “super” chemicals were being extracted from fruits and vegetables. Through eating enough fruits and vegetables, people would keep their bodies in balance while getting all of the phytochemicals in the proper ratio. In 1997, after coming to this understanding, Dr. Howard developed Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies®. The supplement replaces multivitamins and consists 100% of flash dried fruits and vegetables. Fruits and Veggies® make it possible for people to consume the nutritional equivalent of more than 10 servings of 31 different fruits and vegetables every day. The results are impressive.
