HUM Nutrition was born out of Walter's personal struggle with his skin and breakouts. Years of trying topical products and prescription drugs had left him scarred emotionally and physically. Many of the drugs prescribed worked only on a temporary basis, and the breakouts returned year after year. Walter always felt that there was a link between nutrition and his skin but research in the area was hard to come by, with the majority of dermatologists not trained in the field of nutrition. It was only after he met with one of London's most forward thinking nutritionists that he was able to fix his skin once and for all, HUM was then created.
