What is a DAN! Doctor? Defeat Autism Now...

Have you heard the term DAN! Doctor? It refers to a doctor that conducts his/her practice in accordance with the Defeat Autism Now!® philosophy. A DAN! doctor uses a more natural approach to treating Autism.

The exact cause of Autism has not been agreed upon by the scientific world. There seem to be various and multiple causes that can vary from one person to another. There is a genetic factor, along with exposure to mercury through some immunizations, food intolerance to gluten and casein, and other environmental concerns which contribute to a weakened immune system.

Recommended treatments are diet examination and food allergy testing, including removing dairy, gluten and casein enriched foods. Vitamin and mineral supplementation, including the occasional probiotics to aid in digestion & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Our office has seen a positive change in our patients who follow this approach.

The doctors in our clinic which are Chiropractic Internists (DABCI) and Naturopathic Doctors (ND), treat a number of conditions as well as Autism. We will be attending a DAN! seminar in May to learn more about their philosophy. Check back for updates!
