Hi! My name is Nate Straus. I have my Doctorate in Nutrition. I was diagnosed in 2009 with mystery sickness or more commonly called multiple sclerosis (MS); formerly disseminating sclerosis. Thus began my journey to get my Doctorate in Nutrition. I want to see a world that is healthier and happier even when living with illness.
