Founder, Dr Douglas Howard, America discussed on Balance of Nature with Dr. Douglas Howard
I talk to people about the validity of Claims. If a person won't look in the eye, they're probably not going to tell you the truth. And I've had the pleasure of knowing too significant people that run very significant, cos I know that my friend would not hesitate in Me saying this. It all but Mike Lyndall, the founder of the My pillow. Dr Douglas Howard, the founder of Balance of Nature. I've gotten to know both of you as men and as individuals and as someone who's not on the microphone, but off the air, and we have private conversations and so forth. And I couldn't tell you. There's something so significant about a company where not only the CEO and the inventor in the founder takes care of his people and treats his employees as though they're extensions of his family and really believes in You know, harboring a quality environment in that, but to see that spill over into the quality of the product and how it does what it says it does. And all of those other things, there's only a handful of people in all of America. That sell things on a regular basis that can make the claim what I say. My product does it actually does, and balance of nature's is one of the very few that I've ever run across. That actually doesn't one of the reasons why I'm so passionately and advocate for balance of nature. I've seen it work in my life. I've seen it work in other people's lives. But I want you to talk a little bit about the integrity of the process because there have been opportunities where people have come to you. Or maybe they were trying to pull a shortcut on you. And they've They've tried to take shortcuts with your process, and it's actually sometimes cost you a little time, energy and money. But you've been so Uh, passionate about making sure that the process stays pure. The product stays pure and that it does what you've said and envision from the beginning. Talk about that. And when I start talking because I'm an invite, likes to come on the microphone list because there's some experiences that I want him to share with us on this. Interesting as you can imagine. Through the years we have had company upon company come and talk with us. And I had a dear friend actually come with his dad early on, and they saw the possibilities here and And they came in, and they they wanted to invest into us and so they sit down, they said. So what's your exit strategy? How we gonna make money on this? And I said, my exit strategy is the epitaph on my On My tombstone, it says made a difference in this world and changed lives and quality that literally there's my answer to them. We just couldn't Ever get it together. Then there's Lex got the experience of seeing many times, for example, I'm just gonna put it out there but that people wanted us to go multi level time after time and companies that wanted us to, and then we would sit down because, yeah, I mean, we needed to make money, and we need to make it through the bad times. I mean, you didn't start this as a business you started. This is a way to help your patients. So the business side of it Was something you had to get a learning curve on and grow and kind of shepherd from day one. This is not something ever thought I'd be doing. I love practice. I love people. And so, So as we started doing this, though, people started, you know, coming out the woodwork, and it's interesting that people then that we would say No, There's um There's a major Is a major health food chain that wanted to do something was but when they wanted us to change it, everyone every single time they wanted to change it every single time. They wanted us to cheapen it because it had to be cheaper. Anyway. There was this one multi level that they were doing something and then in some third world countries and helping people, they said, you know, if they get two of these, it's better than having to two capsules. That is, It was better than nothing and they started convinced me to some things like that, And so Started talking with him. Came down to the line when they were they had already a multi level business they were doing. They just wanted to replace it with us plug and play. And so we found out they were paying How much How much likes wasn't that they were paying per bottle for those vitamins a dime. Dime, and they were selling him for $60. And so and that was from the manufacturer of the manufacturers making money, too. That's right. That was their price. They weren't even making themselves. And they were then they just had a good story. They were telling these people that they would become into financially independent and blah, blah, blah. When it came down to it, they found out that over half of our costs, they're actually in the product. They were like, Well, what? We can't do that You got to do this and that and that's when they came. You know how about two in the capsule? Obviously, we could never make it work. One of these guys that was doing this once. Finally he just wanted to make something work. And we even flew had flown out with our attorney because we thought something was gonna work with this and everything and And just and then it got down. Okay, how we gonna make it cheaper? And I was like, I won't change the product. I won't change what we do. We won't do that. These are the studies I have. This is why it works is how it works. I won't change it were about changing lives. And if you could sit, in fact, I invite you, Kevin, come and sit in on one of our our staff meetings. Just to hear it on the phone is one thing, but you should come and sit and see. The tears that I shed by some of our our health coaches. When they tell the stories of who they've helped this week. That's what our staff meetings air about. They talk about their successes. And we share them and we and that's what we are, and so anyways, that we actually produce our own product We've tried. We have tried to get it out because we we thought it'd be easier working with government entities and things that it would be easier to do that way. There's quality could not pass our standard right. We wouldn't send it out. We literally would not send it out. I said, You know what? Give me those bottles. I'll take him home and eat him. But I'm not gonna send those out to people. The fact that there's such a high standard in the product that's in your capsule and the Content of what's in every bottle eyes really unparalleled. And so it's one of those things friends where when you get in, Dr Howard says this in the commercials on a regular basis. But when you when you when you pop open the plastic lid of the bottle, and then you pull the sealed foil, seal off If you don't get a with when you open the fruits of very Strong fruit. They just just walks right up to your nose and the same with the with the veggies. If you don't, then you're not do not taking balance of nature. If you don't get that smell, if you don't think that's there Then take one of the capsules over and open it up and taste it. I challenge that with anything else out there. You won't get it. We don't use and we don't fill it with things like Like alfalfa well, and the thing is you've picked 31 fruits and vegetables is the combination of this all base going back to our previous discussion on the chemistry of what those specific fruits and vegetables find. You take the three and three they work in combination. Now they working combination and you take those three and three every day, you're going to be taking the equivalent of 10 servings of a salad made of those 31 fruits and vegetables. Now I don't know how much salad you're currently ingesting. But if you're not eating 10, plateful Z of it with these 31 specific fruits and vegetables in it, you're gonna miss the nutrition that is in the compact form of these caps with nothing but whole food. And when you say whole food, its skin it's it's seed. It's it's all the stuff that that it's in that food when feasible. Yet, for example, is the whole apple. It's the whole pineapple. Now we take the skin off of something right, because that's not necessarily a double portion, right?.
