Balance of Nature | All About Balance of Nature Our Purpose
Balance of Nature started with a commitment to combat the lack of Nutritional Value in the modern diet. Balance of Nature is 100% natural.
Balance of Nature: About Us
Did you know, 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 for his loved ones to stay healthy and happy. He discovered a needed solution and developed Balance of Nature.

Balance of Nature does not claim to treat or cure any disease. Fruits, vegetables, and other plant foods provide the vital chemistry our bodies need to defend and repair themselves.
Heat, air, and light destroy the chemistry, or the nutrients, in your food. Heat, light, and air, in addition to moisture, cause oxidation, which breaks things down. Oxidation makes rust, for example. We use a vacuum process with no heat, air, or light. Oxidation destroys the nutrition, and that’s why we use the process we do.
Balance of Nature contains the highest quality products you will find, in their purest form.
We are very stringent on our quality and we test all of the products we get. We do get our produce from whoever has the highest quality, even if that is from another country. Sometimes we have to get things that aren’t from the United States and don’t have the United States Organic Seal.
At Balance of Nature, we are willing to pay a higher price to get a higher grade product even if it’s not from the United States. Anyone who thinks that once you step over the border of the United States everything is crummy, is wrong. Yes, other countries can use heavy chemicals, and you do have to be more careful. But, if we can get a higher quality product that is not from an organic farm in the United States, wouldn’t we want that in our product? We don’t always take from organic farms. They don’t have USDA Organic Seals outside of the United States, and we accept produce from other places if we can get a higher quality. We won’t accept sub-standard just because it is marked organic.
Some of the product does have to come from outside the United States, so it is rigorously tested. We test for pesticides, heavy metals, aerobic bacteria, anaerobic bacteria, and a nutritional panel. We also used to do independent testing on top of that. That’s what we test for, and we get analysis for it every time we get our stuff. We’ve had to turn away organic stuff many times before because it didn’t pass our standards. We are not biased to America, we are biased to quality. If we can get something better outside of America, we will and do.
Balance of Nature: Our Founder
At a young age Dr. 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 got his EMT at age 16. By the time he was 18, he was certified in all modules equivalent to being a paramedic.
Dr. Howard learned homeopathy when he lived in Germany for a couple of 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 four 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 research did not get published in America because of the pharmaceutical industry. 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 concentrated 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 won’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 (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. Call it a vitamin, call it a drug, call it whatever you want, but every time you take an isolated chemical and put it in the system, you have a side effect. You may not notice for a long time, but there is a side effect.
With time in practice as a medical doctor, Dr. Howard started understanding and realizing what the Triad of Health was. Many times people relate the Health Triad to DaVinci's “mind, body, spirit,” but Dr. Howard found that “mind, body, spirit” doesn’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. Why do you think they left medicine in the Latin language for so long? To leave people in fear and in the unknown, because then they will do what you tell them to. Once you educate you will remove 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 twenty years of practice, Dr. Howard realized and understood that drugs, adjustments, and physical therapy didn’t fix people. It might temporarily, but to be truly healthy you have to deal with three things. If we have a triangle that works on different areas of our health there will be: one, Chemical; two, Physical; and three, Spiritual (emotional, mental, etc.). 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. They 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 they lost it, they could do it all again, but if they didn’t 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. He 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?
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. 
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 lower risk of disease, but it also supports good brain function. 
Plant foods are full of nutrients and low in saturated fat. Saturated fat can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive conditions. 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. 
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. 
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. 
These benefits are really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to eating plant foods.
