Dr. Jim Hawver

Naturopath, Founder

“You have the potential to be a really good healer.”

That is what my mentor, Dr. George Goodheart, the man considered to be the father of Applied Kinesiology, said to me in the 1960’s when we worked together in the natural health field. I didn’t know then how his work would change my life.

In the mid-1980’s, I kept meeting doctors who were testing patients with the early forms of electro-dermal screening (EDS) and helping them with more than just vitamins and minerals. I knew I needed to learn more about homeopathy to be more effective as well. In one bold move, I opened Standard Enzyme Company in 1987 and never looked back.

My background in Applied Kinesiology, with Dr. Goodheart, planted within me a desire to know the root cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. This new technology provided deeper insight into the origins of sickness and disease. Now, that’s a REAL cure.

I’ve often described health related symptoms as nails in a tire. The EDS technology we’ve created called Vital software. We also utilize an online questionnaire, which is called Physicians Health Report. Both models are designed to find the nail, see why it’s there, and how it can be removed.

It’s been an exciting career, and I’ll never retire, because it makes my heart glad to keep “fixing” one “tire” at a time as a result of good nutritional care and technology.
