“Mitochondrial DNA is very fragile and susceptible to mutation by environmental factors. When the mitochondria are not functioning at full capacity, the cell does not have the energy to carry out its necessary functions.” – says, Barry Smeltzer, MPAS, PA-C.

He is the owner of Healing Provisions PLLC of San Antonio, Texas, where he specializes in biomedical and environmental medicine interventions to assist in healing the body. He has dedicated his career to healing children and families after his own son was diagnosed with multiple medical conditions, all of which have significantly improved.

Barry has presented to both local and national organizations, such as the National Autism Association and AutismOne. He has also written several articles for Autism Science Digest and the Autism File.
