The DAN! Project

What is “DAN!”?

DAN! stands for “Defeat Autism Now!” and is a project which was initiated by The Autism Research Institute to educate parents, caregivers and therapists about the biomedical approach to healing autism and biomedical testing and research.


The Autism Research Institute (ARI) believe, as do I, that autism is a treatable condition and that psychotropic drugs, with all of their side effects, are not the best way to treat autism spectrum disorders. The ARI, and many physicians and researchers, believe that there are more effective ways to alleviate, and sometimes cure, these disorders.

Mission Statement

The Defeat Autism Now! project’s mission statement is:-
“Defeat Autism Now! is dedicated to the exploration, evaluation and dissemination of scientifically documented biomedical interventions for individuals within the autism spectrum, through the collaborative efforts of clinicians, researchers and parents.”

As a DAN! doctor, I believe in this mission statement and use biomedical approaches to treat my autistic patients, rather than using drugs and other treatments. My DAN! doctor status also means that I am obliged to stay up-to-date on medical advancements through reading medical literature and attending conferences and workshops. This means that my patients can benefit from cutting edge information and research, and be assured that I am always acting in accordance with the ARI’s DAN! protocol.

Biomedical Approaches

Approaches consistent with the DAN! protocol include:-

  • HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy)
  • Detoxification
  • Dietary intervention
  • Vitamin and mineral supplementation
  • Gut treatments
  • Essential Fatty Acid supplementation
  • Treatment to regulate the immune system
  • Melatonin
  • Thyroid supplements
  • Sulfation
  • Glutathione
  • Amino Acids

DAN! Conferences

The ARI run regular DAN! Conferences which can be attended by DAN! physicians and parents. These conferences will inform attendees of the very latest news in the treatment of autism and will provide correct and usable information about issues such as :-

  • Detoxification
  • GI (gastrointestinal) disorders
  • Nutrition and diet
  • The general health of your child
  • Language and speech
  • Metabolic issues
  • Behavior

    As a parent of an Autistic 5 year old boy with sensory integration disorder, severe apraxia, gastrointestinal & feeding issues; I try to stay pro-active in my research and in talking to other parents who’ve tried biomedical, hbot, methyl b-12, etc. I’ve done enough reading to convince me that there is something for everyone in order to better if not recover your child. I feel in my opinion it is imperative to stay pro-active and do something just as you would if your “non-autistic” child fell ill or got injured. It is my opinion that in staying pro-active with the aid of the medical professionals that know more about the research, you still have hope in giving your child a better, happier, healthier life.

    I am very interested in a sugar-free living. I currently have a sweet-tooth, and am finding it difficult to find meal plans, what to eat for snacks, etc. While diabetes is not something that runs in my family, I am still concerned and would like to be smart and take a proactive approach to my health. Any tips or advice?

    Dear Regan, we had in our office what we called Sugar Control Diet and you can go to to buy a book called “The Sugar Control Bible and Cookbook” by Jacqueline Paltis. It has tons of meal plans and snack ideas, but essentially for snack you eat fruits, raw vegetable, raw and unroasted nuts of any kinds, maybe even those sprouted bread. Checkout the book.
