All About Balance of Nature

Balance of Nature started with a commitment to combat the lack of nutritional value in the modern diet. Balance of Nature is whole food.

Balance of Nature: About Us

Did you know that Balance of Nature first started in the 1990s? It all began with Dr. Douglas Howard’s concern about the increasing epidemic of lifestyle diseases and his desire to keep his loved ones healthy and happy. He discovered a needed solution and developed Balance of Nature.

Balance of Nature: Our Founder

Balance of Nature: Our Founder

At a young age Dr. Douglas Howard was highly interested in health and has always wanted to be a doctor. He started working in the St. George, Utah, ER at age 14 and became an EMT at age 16. By the time he was 18, he was certified in all modules—the equivalent of being a paramedic!

Dr. Howard learned homeopathy when he lived in Germany for a few years. And, when he returned to America, he witnessed a young lady overcome migraines by switching from pain medication to chiropractic. In the meantime, Dr. Howard’s brother became a chiropractor, and he started to open his mind to the idea of chiropractic. At that point, Dr. Howard’s goal was to take medicine and chiropractic and combine the two.

Five years later, he went to Russia and became the Dean of Foreign Student Affairs at Pavlov University for 4 years. While in Russia, he saw evidence where patients with certain diseases were prescribed wrongly, which accelerated their problems. He also saw how other treatments were more effective, such as fasting therapy, and cured the patients. This changed Dr. Howard’s life, and he knew he needed to stand for what he believed in.

He didn’t set out to make a company like Balance of Nature. At first, he started truly expanding the way he thought and what he thought. He studied in clinics and hospitals in Finland, Mexico, and the Caribbean countries. He wanted to know more than what we just had here. That thirst for knowledge was so important because he wanted to know why things happened.

When Dr. Howard came back to America, he thought he would start doing holistic pediatrics. However, he found that the patients who missed and needed him the most were the older patients. Nobody was trying to do anything natural for them; they were only being put on more drugs. Most of them were on “Meals on Wheels.” He noticed the need for more nutrition.

Dr. Howard decided to do geriatrics. His patients were aged 50 and over, because nobody at that time was concentrating on holistic health care for seniors, or geriatric care. Holistic care was available for pediatrics, for sports medicine, for everything else, but not for geriatric care because Medicare wouldn't allow it. So that’s where he started concentrating his efforts.

Dr. Howard also had a lot of interest in vitamins. The more he studied, the more he saw contradictory information. He then started to learn more about phytochemicals, or plant chemicals.

Dr. Howard would follow the Recommended Dietary Allowance RDA for daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, but the recommendations continued to change. He had a hard time believing it was the right thing to do because of the constant change. It was at this time he realized where he could find the “magic chemical” and the “perfect balance”: in the food we eat—the fruits and vegetables!

He learned not to fall into fads, that extracted chemicals are not healthy, and that every isolated chemical has a side effect. One can call it a vitamin, call it a drug, call it whatever they want, but every time someone takes an isolated chemical and puts it in the system, they have a side effect. They may not notice for a long time, but there is a side effect.

With time in practice as a medical doctor, Dr. Howard started discovering and understanding the Triad of Health. Many times people relate the Triad of Health to DaVinci's “mind, body, spirit,” but Dr. Howard found that “mind, body, spirit” didn't cover it.

He learned while working in the hospital that the key to most cures is education. People fear death, and they fear the unknown. Medicine was left in the Latin language for so long to leave people in fear and in the unknown, because then they will do what they’re told. Education removes the fear, which sits on the Spiritual side of the Triad. Health and fear can’t coexist. People in constant fear are physically and mentally sick.

After 20 years of practice, Dr. Howard realized and understood that drugs, adjustments, and physical therapy didn’t fix people. They might temporarily, but to be truly healthy people must work on building their Triad of Health. Complete health can only be achieved through personal accountability. Dr. Howard developed a simple philosophy to clarify personal health responsibilities: the Triad of Health. It covers the 3 areas of health: Physical, Spiritual, and Chemical.

Dr. Howard told his wife Susan one day, “People are really asking for Balance of Nature, and we have to choose.” He had a great practice and everything was solid in their life, but he knew he could help more people with Balance of Nature. The Howards knew that if they didn’t do it they would always wish they had tried.

As a result, Dr. Howard sold both his homes, both offices, and everything they had. Susan told him if Balance of Nature didn’t succeed, they could do it all again, but if they didn’t do it, they would always be sorry. Dr. Howard knew that in practice he could help thousands of people but with Balance of Nature, he could potentially help millions.

This wasn’t a scheme to make money. Dr. Howard made the decision to move on from his beloved practice and to help people increase their nutrition and reap all the health benefits that come with that.

Balance of Nature: Why Plant Foods?

Balance of Nature: Why Plant Foods?

Many studies have shown the health benefits of eating plant foods. According to Katherine McManus, director of nutrition, director of the Dietetic Internship at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, plant-based eating patterns have been shown to lower the risk of diseases and various health conditions such as heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and certain cancers.1

Plant-based diets support health and give the body what it needs to function. “Plant-based diets offer all the necessary protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals for optimal health, and are often higher in fiber and phytonutrients,” McManus states.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine says that a plant-based diet is “a powerful way to achieve good health.” They agree that eating a variety of plant foods provides all the protein, calcium, and other essential nutrients the body needs. A plant-based diet may not only the lower risk of disease, but it also supports good brain function.2

Plant foods are full of nutrients and low in saturated fat. A plant-based diet excludes foods high in bad fat and includes foods rich in antioxidants, folate, and vitamin E, which may offer a protective effect.3

To add to that, Heather Alexander, a writer for The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, explains that a plant-based diet supports the immune system, providing vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants to help keep cells healthy and the body in balance so the immune system can function at its best.4

All of the components in plant foods work together to fight inflammation and toxins or free radicals, which can contribute to the development of many diseases and health conditions.5

These benefits are really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to eating plant foods!

I used to go to bed at night and my feet would keep me up all night long. No more. My feet haven’t bothered me since I’ve been taking this. I can even walk barefoot, which I could never do before.

                   — Debra, CA

“It’s an awesome product. I got my uncle on it, my mom on it, I got 4 or 5 of my best friends from high school on it. They all have their own little story to tell about this condition or that condition going away, so kudos, it’s just an amazing product.”

Our body always tries to find a way to become healthier, so if we can support it, and help it, in a natural way, that is the design. And, it’s been fantastic to work with Balance of Nature. Seeing the fruits and vegetables come in from the farmers and then seeing it put in a form that can be taken each day, and then seeing those that benefit from it, was fantastic. It was a great thing.”
