Who Was H.L. “Sam” Queen?

Home / Who Was H.L."Sam" Queen

The Designed2Win Health Model Was the Brainchild of Biochemist, Clinical Nutritionist, Secondary Researcher and Teacher H.L. Sam Queen.

HL Sam Queen believed that our bodies are made by design, and designed to WIN, not to lose. No matter your belief in the designer - whether science or a supreme being - that fact, he believed, didn’t change. He felt the best way to experience real health was to understand that the body has a definite design, and then to support that design.

While Sam personally had strong beliefs as to who the designer was, his focus was driven only by finding the best path to support the body’s design for health, and he wanted to make that available to everyone. He felt that those benefitting the most were the ones who incorporated their health journey into their own personal beliefs.

Sam spent his life researching, studying, and working toward an ideal Health Model, based on all that that was available in scientific literature. He was never afraid to change his opinion as research indicated new developments. He trained other health practitioners of all specialties in that Health Model and helped countless individuals find paths to better health. He sincerely loved working with every single person, and always hoped that he could help everyone understand that they had ways to support their body’s design as they went about living life.

Although Sam in no longer physically with us, his Health Model still is, and still has tremendous value.

Here’s What Sam Had to Say About It

I studied people and their chemistries for over 50 years…testing, teaching, always experimenting, and learning in a wide range of matters concerning health and disease.

I’ve had great mentors and momentous experiences and have come to realize that nearly everyone in the health care field is well trained in the what’s called the Biomedical Model of Disease, or the disease model, as it is best known.

Strange as it seems, our health providers are better trained in disease than in health.

Universities commonly offer the doctor of medicine degree. Yet no institution that I’ve been made aware of offers a doctor of health degree. There is a degree in public health, but public health is geared more toward a community than to an individual person and their specific needs.

So, how do you tailor health to the individual?

Through the years we made many discoveries about health, but perhaps the most significant was that there are six common denominators of cell health and disease. Some alteration in any one or all of these preceded all chronic diseases, infections, toxicities and cancers. So, from this finding we were able to develop what has become the first objectively measured health model. It allows us to look at any health situation from the basic perspective of its origin and contributing factors, which simplifies it and its solution.

One day, the thought came to me that no matter how out of “whack” all the data seemed to be in any one person’s chemistry, it was still the best that the body could do at that given moment in time to meet all the challenges before it.

Well, from then onward the name for our health model became the Designed2Win™ Model of Health. It really says it like it is.

The body can get well because it has a definite pattern that’s aiming for wellness all the time. Your body is always reaching for that natural balance that exists within it. All other things can be cleaned up to ensure your body can follow its design to the best of its ability. And sometimes it’s helpful to enlist other people in a successful outcome.

The point is that the body is designed to win, not to lose. That’s what I find so exciting! There may be a limit to how long the body lives, but it’s not designed to deteriorate and fall apart early. That’s just the result of individual circumstances, poor thinking and perhaps poor choices. Even when circumstances are hard to change, thinking and choices can always be changed. We’ve spent years uncovering more and more ways this is true and putting it into our health model.

And along the way, we’ve realized something significant. When someone is trying to overcome a difficult health problem, and first sees their body as something that is designed for success, they often breathe a sigh of relief. It’s no longer an inevitable event that they have no control over. And that makes all the difference, because a hopeful outlook can help mobilize aspects of the healing response.

For now, here’s the deal. You can struggle with finding a cure for this or that, or you can consider looking for answers through this Designed2Win Model of Health. You can learn how to take matters into your own hands and get to the root of health issues that may already have developed in your life, and prevent future problems from occurring.


What we want for you is the best of health. Why? We want you to have the excitement and enthusiasm you need to go about your life’s purpose.

Finally, who we are is this: Truth is our highest priority, and we are willing to amend any view when the evidence suggests it’s warranted. We believe body chemistry represents the language that your body is using to instruct itself to meet all the challenges placed before it at any given moment in time.

Our job is to learn the body’s language to the best of our ability and then to provide the support it’s asking for.
