DAN stands for Defeat Autism Now. DAN! was created in order to address the limitations of available conventional treatments and the understanding of the disorder. The participants wanted to move away from traditional thinking and have come up with an approach which is progressive and cutting-edge, and which does not rely on using drugs to treat autism.Their approach is more holistic and involves diet, intestinal function, vitamin deficiencies, excess proteins, viruses, vaccinations, antibiotics, probiotics, amino acids, and more.
