About Me

I started Nuterel with my wife Jessica as a way to help families affected by autism and other chronic diseases through nutrition.Our son David was diagnosed with severe autism with challenging symptoms like aggression, self-injury behavior like hitting his head to the floor, lack of attention and focus. I was devastated. So I went back to school and got an advanced graduate degree in nutrition and functional medicine. My son went from severe autism to honor-roll (Year 2021) in school and playing multiple sports with nutrition.  Our accomplishments include:
