About Balance of Nature

MEET DR. HOWARD

Chiropractic Physician (Retired)
Professor of Medical Science and Research, Pavlov Medical University
Dean of Foreign Student Affairs, St. Petersburg Pediatric Medical University (Retired)

You could say he was born to be a doctor. While living in Enterprise, Utah, young Dr. Howard landed himself in the emergency room (ER) at age 14—and not as a patient. He worked as a volunteer at Pioneer Memorial Medical Center in St. George, Utah, taking vital signs, cleaning up, and gleaning all he could from the hospital environment. At age 15 he was granted special permission to be employed at the Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas as an orderly in nuclear medicine. Dr. Howard then began volunteering at Dixie Regional Medical Center, logging more than two-thousand volunteer hours by the time he was 16.

At that same age, he was hired as an ER technician at Dixie Regional Medical Center. His desire to become a doctor was cemented by a transformative experience he had there. He recalls a 2-year-old girl coming in on an ambulance. She had spinal meningitis and went into cardiac and respiratory arrest—meaning she wasn’t breathing, and her heart wasn’t pumping. Dr. Howard was the only one there and administered CPR until he could get a team to come and help. “We saved her life,” he says.

He’ll never forget a woman walking into the ER with her little girl about a year later. ‘“See that man right there?” the woman said, pointing to Dr. Howard. “‘That’s the one that saved your life.’”

“I was done. That’s what I was gonna do the rest of my life,” he says.

Avid in the pursuit of a medical career, Dr. Howard was even given a special waiver by the governor to receive his EMT certification before the age of 18. That was just the beginning.

Dr. Howard’s deep love of health and of people never dimmed. In fact, further experiences would only illuminate his desire to help those around him. He studied pre-med at Dixie State College of Utah and went on to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Cleveland Chiropractic College in 1986, after which he practiced chiropractic in Salt Lake City for several years. It was in Russia, though, that his area of medical interest would come into sharp focus.

While earning his medical degree from Pavlov First Medical Institute in St. Petersburg, Dr. Howard’s thoughts began to turn more and more to nutrition. It was the first time in his life he had witnessed firsthand the effect of socioeconomic diseases (diseases caused by social or economic status, not just germ theory). The Iron Curtain had only recently fallen. Most of the people of Russia were very poor at the time, many living on black bread and water. It became clear to Dr. Howard that those who could afford, buy, or raise fruits and vegetables were healthy—and those who could not, were sick. The line was distinctive.

His interest in nutrition had peaked upon returning from Russia. At first, he joined the movement in search of that mysterious, magical phytochemical—“the one that would cure all that ails you,” he says. But that was a roller coaster ride because more and more phytochemicals 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 consumers from all sides. Finally Dr. Howard realized that there are hundreds of thousands of phytochemicals, some discovered and others yet to be discovered, and this would never stop as long as people looked at things in this light. This thought 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 whole fruits and vegetables, he knew, people would keep their bodies in balance while getting all of the phytochemicals they need in the proper ratio. After coming to this understanding, in 1997 Dr. Howard developed Balance of Nature Fruits & Veggies, a supplement replacing multivitamins. Balance of Nature contains only flash dried fruits and vegetables, which enables people to conveniently acquire more than ten servings of fruits and vegetables a day, exceeding the federal recommendation for daily fruit and vegetable intake. Balance of Nature products are the culmination of Dr. Howard’s passion for people, health, and science.

Today, Dr. Howard is one of the leading researchers in phytonutrition, frequently making guest appearances on talk shows, podcasts, and other media. He continues to research and lecture around the world.

Dr. Howard and his wife, Susan, reside in St. George, Utah. They have five children and 19 grandchildren, some of which have been monickered “phyto babies” for their early consumption of Balance of Nature Fruits & Veggies.

The Triad of Health

THE TRIAD OF HEALTH

Complete health can only be achieved through personal accountability. During 20 years of practice, Dr. Howard developed a simple philosophy to clarify your personal health responsibilities: The Triad of Health.

Physical Health: This is what you do and how your body functions, all the way down to the cellular level. This side of the triad includes consistent physical activity and proper function of your physical body.

Spiritual Health: This encompasses spiritual, mental, and emotional health. This side of the triad includes what you think, how you think, your relationships, and your attitude. We believe complete health cannot dismiss your relationship with God and daily personal meditation.

Chemical Health: This involves every function of your body. This side of the triad includes what you eat, drink, breathe, absorb, or consume in any way. Your body is a fantastic chemical laboratory—the substances you choose to expose it to affect its intricate functions & processes.

How do I take Fruits & Veggies?

It's easy! You can swallow your Fruits & Veggies with a glass of water, chew the capsules, or open the capsules and mix the powder with food or drink.

When do I take Fruits & Veggies?

Because Balance of Nature is whole food, you can take it at any time. Many customers prefer to split them up, taking their Fruits in the morning and Veggies in the afternoon. Some prefer to take them by 2 p.m. to benefit from a boost of energy in the afternoon rather than having extra energy at bedtime. If it is easier for you to take them all at once, you can do that too! The main thing to remember is that consistency is the key to success. Find a time to take them that works for you and make it a daily habit.

How do I take Fiber & Spice?

Mix 2 scoops of Fiber & Spice into at least 16 oz. of liquid, stirring frequently. Add a splash of apple juice for a delicious spiced cider flavor.

Are these products organic?

At Balance of Nature, we do everything it takes to produce the very best product. No shortcuts. We go beyond the “USDA Organic” seal. Our products contain produce grown, handled, processed, and certified in a way that meets and exceeds the requirements for using the USDA Organic seal. Balance of Nature chooses not to use this seal on its labels because this seal doesn’t approach Balance of Nature’s philosophies and standards for organic, which are stricter requirements.

Will Balance of Nature interfere with my medication?

Don’t worry unless your doctor has said you cannot eat fruits and vegetables. Even then, if good nutrition through fruits and vegetables makes sense to you, you can tell your doctor and they can adjust your medications accordingly. It is important to follow the recommendations of your doctor. Any health information provided in this product description is for informational purposes only.

Are these products non-GMO?

We do not use any Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) in Balance of Nature products.

Do these products replace fruits and vegetables in my diet?

Fruits and vegetables are an important part of a balanced diet. We encourage good eating habits. You can never eat too many fruits and vegetables.

Is Fiber & Spice a laxative?

No. Fiber & Spice may balance your bowel, giving a firming effect for loose bowels and a softening effect for tight bowels.

When do I take Fiber & Spice?

Fiber & Spice is an important part of your daily health regimen. To find what works best for you, start by drinking 2 scoops in at least 16 ounces of liquid every day. You can do this in the morning, afternoon, or evening, whichever you prefer.

Do I take all of the Fruits & Veggies capsules at the same time?

The Fruits & Veggies are whole food, so you can take them just like you would when eating fruits and vegetables. Many customers prefer to split them up, taking their Fruits in the morning and Veggies in the afternoon. If it is easier for you to take them all at once, you can do that too. The main thing to remember is that consistency is the key to success! Find a time to take them that works for you and make it a daily habit.

What is the shelf life of my Balance of Nature?

All of our products are manufactured and packaged under stringent Good Manufacturing Practices to ensure product safety and freshness.

Balance of Nature Fruits & Veggies have a shelf life of at least five years when sealed. The Fiber & Spice has a shelf life of at least one year when sealed.

All of our products are stamped on the bottom of the bottle with the Manufactured Date. This is not an expiration date, it is the date that the product was made and its shelf life starts.

Both products are likely safe to take beyond this time but may lose some nutritional value the longer they sit on the shelf. It is best to store Balance of Nature products in a cool and dark space, like a kitchen cupboard.

It’s great to be prepared with extra Balance of Nature on hand. If you keep a supply at all times as we do, then we recommend taking your oldest product first and keeping the newer product on the shelf.
