Supporting the health and healing of children with autism…

Dear Parents…..

Welcome!  I’m Julie Matthews, an autism diet and nutrition specialist and Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Practitioner who helps parents like you worldwide find hope and healing for their children on the spectrum.

As demonstrated by pediatricians, scientific data, and parental experience, autism diets can help relieve some of the symptoms of autism. I have educated over 10,000 parents and clinicians at leading autism conferences about autism diet, nutrition, supplementation, enzymes, probiotics, meal planning and healthful cooking. I  guide parents as they apply autism diet and nutrition intervention for their child as a complement to behavioral and other conventional treatments. Through my autism nutrition practice, I provide one-on-one parent counseling, an online resource center, and autism diet intervention tools.

I welcome families from diverse backgrounds from cities, suburbs, towns and rural areas in the US and abroad.

Please read and contribute to my website and share your stories!


Hi, I’m Julie Matthews, a Certified Nutrition Consultant, Author, and Published Researcher. I teach parents and practitioners that children with autism, ADHD, and related disorders can improve and heal, and that there’s hope for their children. Then I educate and empower them to make strategic dietary changes that positively affect children’s health, which in turn helps their learning and behavior. With 17 years of experience and my unique range of knowledge, from nutrition research and clinical experience to cooking in the kitchen for my own family, I’ve created a much-needed community for parents and practitioners looking to help children with autism live happy, healthy lives.
